New "live" 1976 performance by The Flying Burrito Brothers to be released in November 2022


We just learned of the soon to be released "new" CD by The Flying Burrito Brothers, entitled "Live At The Bottom Line NYC 1976".

Sneaky Pete Kleinow, Gib Guilbeau, Gene Parsons, Skip Battin, Joel Scott Hill

Sneaky Pete wrote in 2001:

1976 was a great year for re-iteration of the Flying Burrito Brothers having the opportunity to travel throughout the USA celebrating the 200th Anniversary of the founding of the United States. Though Gram Parsons wasn't around any more, Chris Hillman embarked on a solo career, and Chris Ethridge had just departed this band, we had some great guys that just happened to be real familiar with the 'Burrito' mentality. It all came together quite spectacularly! To begin, Gib Guilbeau was my life-long pal and Cajun guy par excellence. Gene Parsons, formerly of the Byrds, was he drummer from hell who lifted the excitement to the limit (and picked a great banjo and string bender guitar0. What can I say about Joel Scott Hill? A rebel? A reverent fanatic? A soulful and emotional artist? ALL of the above! Then there is Skip Battin, who just joined the band whom everyone loved and called friend who provided very original bass and vocal support. All these cuts are genuine items from a live performance at New York City's legendary Bottom Line club with all the warts AND magical moments. No fix ups and no apologies. Just real music and true enthusiasm. This was the way it was when he hit the road in 1976! - Sneaky Pete 2001

Attention! We don't know if this is a legitimate release or an unofficial one so beware.
