In 1968, the Flying Burrito Brothers published their debut album, The Gilded Palace of Sin on A&M documents, promoting a disappointing 400,000 copies.  Almost 40 years later, the band’s entrance guy, Gram Parsons, is nonetheless spoken of with a nearly messianic reverence.  Patron saint of alt-country, emblazoned with a shining move, useless at 26.  Overshadowed through the legend of Parsons, this album is still immediately an anomaly within the fledgling nation rock style and a map in miniature of a second in track and culture.  Pointing backwards into traditions of black and white southern track, ahead to the country-tonk suggestions of the early 70s Stones, and working during the psychedelia and political activism of the California scene to the scene’s flashpoint on the Altamont Speedway, The Gilded Palace of Sin merits to be mentioned as anything greater than a part of the Gram Parsons legacy.

Bob Proehl's book uses the Seven lethal Sins as a type of structuring machine to examine an album that performs as quick and free with its non secular photos because it does with its genre-borrowing. One example: Gluttony - good, that’s the straightforward one, isn’t it?  With the album complete, the Burritos employed a highway supervisor and took off on a journey of the US by means of train.  By his personal account, the line manager’s activity was once to get the medicine, conceal the medication and bear in mind the place he’d hidden the drugs.  By the top of the journey, many of the band individuals required wheelchairs and the inventive spark proven at the album looked as if it would have fizzled lower than a bevy of drug-addled performances.  The gluttony part also will conceal Parsons' dismissal from the band through Hillman and the addictions that resulted in his death.
