Like GP, his masterful solo debut from the year before, Grievous Angel trades in the shaggy hippie-country sound and rough edges of the Flying Burrito Brothers for a newfangled purity and precision. Grievous Angel was cobbled together from old songs Parsons had lying around, some covers Tom T. Yet the album boasts a cohesion and fluidity that belies the ramshackle manner in which it was assembled. Parsons was reportedly hired by The Byrds to play jazz piano for a tour and dodgy-sounding concept album about the history of music, but Parsons was too strong-willed, charismatic, and talented to be relegated to a sideman role, even in a popular and influential band filled with outsized personalities with egos to match.
He quickly steered The Byrds into an unmistakably country direction.

He was strong and ambitious enough to sign on for a supporting role with a musical powerhouse, then recreate it in his own iconoclastic image. With Parsons onboard, the history-of-American-music concept album was soon scratched for an album of classic country covers as well as two Bob Dylan covers and two Parsons originals , recorded in Nashville with the help of a battery of accomplished session players for a project eventually titled Sweetheart Of The Rodeo.
A sweeping, panoramic journey through the history of American roots music follows. The Byrds might have jettisoned the notion of a concept album chronicling the history of American music, but something of that insanely ambitious conceit remains in Sweetheart Of The Rodeo. As the architect of Cosmic American Music, Parsons was all about blurring the lines between country, folk, soul, bluegrass, and rock. Search form Search. Advanced Search. Upcoming Event.
