Warning: This two-disc set from 1998 sports a deliberately misleading title. (Actually, it's also subtitled "The Flying Burrito Brothers' Farewell Album," a claim which quickly proved to be misleading in itself.) This album has no connection whatsoever to the Byrds' classic SWEETHEART OF THE RODEO, which featured original Burritos co-founders Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman. More importantly, there are exactly two Burritos present, guitarist John Beland and fiddler Gib Guilbeau, neither of whom were in any of the band's classic early lineups. In the eyes of some purists, this is not a Burritos album at all. This is not to say the album's without merit, however. Recorded quickly and roughly, the set has some pleasingly rough edges on its new-country (think Travis Tritt, not the Waco Brothers) tunes, and the covers are well-chosen and soulfully done. It may not be the Burritos, but it ain't bad.
