While the Flying Burrito Brothers are often remembered for founder Gram Parsons’ contributions, largely on the strength of their debut album, The Gilded Palace of Sin, the band carried on after his departure and even long after co-founder Chris Hillman left the fold. By the time of this 1976 live recording, originally issued as From Another Time before being expanded as The Red Album, the band featured only two members, bassist Chris Ethridge and pedal steel player Pete “Sneaky” Kleinow, who played on the debut. (Kleinow would become the de facto carrier of the Burrito Brothers torch, playing under the name until the turn of the millennium.) The band — the same as the one found on the appropriately titled Flying Again — is rounded out by drummer Gene Parsons (formerly of The Byrds and no relation to Gram), guitarist and fiddler Gib Guilbeau, and singer and guitarist Joel Scott-Hill. The latter two had played with Parsons in Nashville West and The Docker Hill Boys, respectively. However, far from the original Burrito Brothers personnel this group may be, they certainly played and operated in the same spirit. Scott-Hill dedicates “Sin City” to Gram and the group also plays “Wheel” from Gilded Palace. But most of the songs come from Flying Again, including a wonderful cover of George Jones’ “Why Baby Why” and the Cajun-flavored, honkytonkin’ “Bon Soir Blues,” written and sung by Guilbeau. Parsons, of course, had passed away by the time of this record, but fortunately the band doesn’t dishonor his memory.
