CD Reviews

Poor quality.
Elizabeth Schoeberlein | Boulder, Colorado | 01/18/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This recording is of poor quality. Lots of surface noise. Instrumentation drowns out the voice(s)."
Interesting Rehearsal Sessions for Gram Parson's GP album
Les Gripkey | Boulder Creek, CA USA | 06/08/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you're looking for studio recordings of these songs, buy the great GP album. If you want insight into how GP was created, how Gram Parsons taught EmmyLou Harris to sing harmony, and want to hear the other songs they were kicking around at the same time, you might want to check out "The Lost Recordings." As noted on the back insert, these are rehearsals. I personally enjoy hearing rehearsals and demos and getting to witness part of the creative process that goes into making a great album like GP. I don't expect the recordings to be studio quality, or vocals and instruments balanced. I know it's a practice with a tape running and take that as an addendum to the final product."
