"I'm quite perplexed by all of the negative reviews of this CD. I suppose if one has purchased the music before, this set may not offer anything in the way of new tracks. However, if you don't already own any Flying Burrito Brothers discs this CD is a welcome alternative to the two disc anthology. The sound quality is also excellent. This single disc contains Gilded Palace of Sin and Burrito Deluxe in the entirey. Two other FBB w/ Parsons tracks are thrown in for good measure. In other words, Sin City is loaded with great material. The Flying Burrito Brothers are more than a hip name drop and influential band. The music is great in and of itself. I honestly can't really tell the difference between country and country-rock but Sin City certainly has more "country" than anything that offer that genre has to offer these days. The bottom line: if you are looking for a single disc to definitively showcase the Flying Burrito Brothers in their heyday this is the way to go."
Two for One!

"Finally! I can get both of the REAL Flying Burrito Brothers albums on one CD with decent mastering. The mastering of Burrito Deluxe in the original issue was especially bad. When they came out the the 2 CD Anthology I was tempted to buy it for the remastering alone...but I didn't want to pay [$$]for a bunch of songs that were recorded after Gram left. Well this is the answer to my prayers...great 24-bit remastering and both CDs together in their entirety. Thanks!This is the prefect companion to the 2-for-one CD release of Gram's two solo albums. 2 CDs and you get 4 of the most important albums in popular music. Can't beat that with a stick..."

"All the tracks of "Gilded Palace of Sin" and "Burrito Deluxe" and a few extra non-album tracks, all on one CD. This makes the twofer "Gilded Palace of Sin/Burrito Deluxe" redundant. If you really want the Rick Roberts tracks, then get the two disc Burritos anthology. But if, like myself, you're not a big Rick Roberts fan, this is the one. "Here Tonight," the only great Rick Roberts era song in my opinion is also on the Gene Clark album "Roadmaster." If you want that song, get Roadmaster, not the Burritos Anthology. Yeah, if you already own most of the tracks, there's no reason to get this, but, if you don't, then seriously, get this one. Or, you might consider the Gram Parsons anthology.
But, in my opinion, you're better off with "Sin City," the Byrds' "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" (the Parsons anthology only has the tracks with Parsons vocals, but the rest of the album is excellent as well) and "GP/Grievous Angel," to make your Burritos/Parsons/Byrds collection complete.
So yeah- if you're looking at this item, you're probably a Parsons/Burritos fan, or you want to become a Parsons/Burritos fan, and so, you want to buy a good Parsons/Burritos CD. If that is so, then you should seriously consider buying this CD."
