The Byrds - Sweetheart Of The Rodeo
The Byrds get all country on your ass with this one. Great album. Gram Parsons pretty much put this all together. Parsons joined the Byrds just before they recorded this album and left the band by the time it was released. It was a commercial failure at the time. Sounds like a bunch of old country songs to me, cover songs, traditional songs I don't know, but it's good stuff.
