More Flying Burrito Brothers "Originals"

You may have noticed that I've been in the process of posting the original version of every song covered by Gram Parsons and his various bands (The International Submarine Band, The Byrds, and The Flying Burrito Brothers). Here are six songs covered by The Flying Burrito Brothers that I neglected to include in my first Flying Burrito Brothers post.

To my knowledge, the FBB cover versions of these songs were all studio outtakes first appearing on the Sleepless Nights compilation. While some of them may not be widely identified with the Flying Burrito Brothers, they are all absolutely killer songs.

1. George Jones – Your Angel Steps out of Heaven (out of print)
2. Ray Price - Crazy Arms (buy)
3. Buck Owens - Together Again (buy) (More at Sundazed Music).
4. The Rolling Stones - Honky Tonk Women (buy)
5. Porter Wagoner - Green, Green Grass of Home (buy)
6. Joe Maphis - Dim Lights, Thick Smoke (And Loud, Loud Music) (out of print)

(Note: Three originals covered by the FBB on the Sleepless Nights LP have already been posted in this series and three more--Gram Parsons solo outtakes--will be posted in the final installment.)

Thanks for the Burrito originals, especially the Joe Maphis, who I'd never heard of. Much respect! I've linked to you on my blog.

I came late to the Undertones, but love them to this day. Doesn't John Peel have a line on his gravestone from the Undertones.

Another great post - thanks!
