The Alternate Takes (1973)
Outtakes From G.P. & Grievous Angel
Rhino’s The Complete Reprise Sessions somehow managed to turn Gram Parson’s only two solo LPs (once issued on a single CD) into a high-priced 3CD box set. Much of it was padding, but the third disc contained the cream of the box - alternate takes (and some unused tracks) from both of Parsons’ solo LP sessions. Gram would die in a motel room before the second album was issued, so, for fans, it’s a final opportunity to hear the influential Parsons & band (with newcomer Emmylou Harris and veteran James Burton) live in the studio, working the kinks out of songs that would inform and reshape country rock’s landscape for decades to come. Frankly, most of these alternates aren’t much different from the originals. But, remixed & remastered sound, and the chance to hear Gram Parsons alive and well one last time, is worth any download time. Listen to Gram & Emmylou’s beautiful alt take on “Love Hurts.” We’ve also got that great Gram Parsons & The Fallen Angels live radio concert (again, with Emmylou), in the archives (HERE).
