The Flying Burrito Brothers - Avalon Ballroom 1969

I just picked this up a few days ago. I love it. The sound is amazing. Amoeba Records did a great job on packaging this 2 CD Set. Well worth the $17 bucks I paid. The discs contain two concerts at The Avalon Ballroom in San Fransisco CA, on April 6-7, 1969. The Brothers opened for The Grateful Dead, which is why these gems are on tape to begin with. Owsley "Bear" Stanley recorded the evening. These tapes rested in the Bear's Vault for the next 38 years. With the determination of Dave Prinz we our now able hear these two fabulous nights. If you are a Gram Parsons fan you should not hesitate to own this. If you are not sure. Go check it out at Amoeba Records.
