The Gilded Palace Of Sin allowed two former Byrds, Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman, to fully explore country music. Several selections, notably "Christine's Tune" and "Wheels," succeeded in capturing the joys of Nashville-inspired rock, but the group proved equally adept at interpreting southern soul standards. Parsons' aching vocal on Dan Penn's "Dark End Of The Street" articulated the dilemmas of infidelity, while on his own composition, "Hot Burrito No. 1," he revealed a vulnerability unusual in a male singer. "Sneaky" Pete Kleinow explored the sonic possibilities of the pedal steel guitar rather than employing orthodox country embellishments, emblematic of the desire to question preconceptions that gives this album its unique qualities.
