Grievous Angel

Grievous Angel is the second solo album by Gram Parsons, compiled from summer 1973 sessions and released four months after his death from a heroin and alcohol overdose in September 1973. It received great critical acclaim upon release, but failed to find commercial success, a fate shared with his previous efforts solo and with The Flying Burrito Brothers. Grievous Angel peaked at number 195 on the Billboard charts. Despite its modest sales, it is viewed as a successful example of the hybrid between country and rock and roll Parsons called "Cosmic American Music". In 2003, the album was ranked number 429 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. ... more on Wikipedia
