No Depression - 5-6/00, pp.106-7
"...[A] welcome reissue...augmented by a handful of additional cuts from the period....By threading together [their] 3 studio albums, the set provides the bridge between SWEETHEART OF THE RODEO and 'Take It Easy'. Plus it's nice to have everything in one place..."

Founded by ex-Byrds Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman, the Flying Burrito Brothers cultivated the country-rock sound originated by that duo's former band into a major movement whose reverberations are still felt to this day. Defined by Parsons as "a Southern soul group playing country and gospel-oriented music with a steel guitar," the Burritos produced a brand of "cosmic country" that included songs about avoiding the draft ("My Uncle"), innocence lost ("Sin City") and a fast-living femme fatale ("Christine's Tune").
The Burritos also translated their considerable creative talents into covering songs by a diverse array of artists including Aretha Franklin ("Do Right Woman"), Buck Owens ("Close Up The Honky Tonks"), the Rolling Stones ("Wild Horses") and The Bee Gees ("To Love Somebody"). Among the band's satellite members were fiddler Byron Berline, pedal steel player "Sneeky" Pete Kleinow, former Byrd Michael Clarke and future Eagle Bernie Leadon.
