gram for gram, pound for pound
A joint Gram Parsons and Roger McGuinn composition; originally released as the flip side to \”Bad Night at the Whiskey\” ahead of the new LP.
It did not chart.
The follow-up of sorts to Parsons\’ vehicle, \”Sweetheart of the Rodeo\”, by this point McGuinn was the sole remaining original Byrd in a line-up featuring the great Clarence White on guitar (head directly for departures via the mighty The Adios Lounge for a definitive education). Parsons, of course, had defected too to cook up The Flying Burrito Brothers with McGuinns\’s former co-pilot and partner in crime, Chris Hillman.
It\’s a flatbed affair on four bald tyres and a cracked windshield.
Roger McGuinn: lead vocals, guitar; Clarence White: lead guitar, vocals; John York: bass, vocals; Gene Parsons: drums, vocals.
