Intervention has put back in print the quick to sell out all-analog reissue of The Flying Burrito Brothers' debut album..." Because Intervention has RTI change stampers every 500 copies (an almost unheard of short number of records pressed between stampers), they claim "...each pressing is golden!"
"If you missed out on this gem the first time around, don't this time!" - Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet, September 23, 2019Is this the album that made country cool? Former Byrds Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman picked up where they left off with Sweetheart of the Rodeo with this stunning masterpiece of a debut album by The Flying Burrito Bros. While Parsons had already pushed rock in a country direction during his brief stint with The Byrds and The International Submarine Band, The Gilded Palace of Sin is why the Burritos are widely viewed as the inventors of country rock. Indeed with this album, Hillman and Parsons carved a substantial place in music history as one of the most influential albums and bands of all time.
The Gilded Palace of Sin is not only Flying Burrito Bros.' finest work, it's a true classic full of some of the greatest tunes ever written and sung by Parsons and Hillman.
The original LP art has been restored by IR's Tom Vadakan and the old-style, "tip-on, brown-in" LP jacket is printed by Stoughton

"To survive and prosper, any reissue label must eventually make a splash with a surprise release that's not only relevant, but hasn't yet had a proper remastering. For Intervention, this is that album. The new marvelous-sounding analog lacquer was cut by Kevin Gray, at Cohearent Audio, and the discs were pressed at RTI. The source was a flat safety copy, on 30ips 1/2" tape, of the original stereo master... The Gilded Palace of Sin is probably the fullest expression of Parsons's vision of a hybrid music... His singing was nasal, with shaky intonation, and yet it had undeniable presence." - Robert Baird, Stereophile, May 2017, Recording of the Month, Performance 5/5, Sonics 4.5/5
"Intervention Records apparently screwed up and shipped the master tape to Ultra Fidelis. From the opening stylus cue (sorry, I can't say 'needle drop'), I had the sensation that it was 1969, and I was transported to the recording venue and allowed to watch one of my very most favorite recordings being made." - Jon Spelt, ultrafi.com, Ultra Fidelis
" this record has never sounded this well balanced A reader asked if I'd assembled a '100 essential albums' list. I haven't but when I do, this will be on it ... There may be other reissues of this record costing less but do not be fooled! This is the only one thats AAA. It costs more but its worth it." - Michael Fremer, analogplanet.com, May 2017, Music 9/11, Sound 9/11
