I met a couple at church yesterday who were originally from Waycross, Georgia. So that got me thinking about Gram Parsons, who grew up there. Here’s some rare video of the Flying Burrito Brothers performing “Christine’s Tune.”

    What a great song. But the commentary about outlaw country is just hilariously stupid.

    Great song and nice video. Would repost except for the "outlaw country" overlay noted above. Sheesh.

    Played on a bill with these folks in the very early 70s. Nice people.
