This is one of those almost impossible-to-find classics. It is one of those "country records that you find in the rock section" that has helped define my musical preferences over the years, or should I say in this case "Bluegrass found in the rock section!"

Gene Parsons found fame with the Byrds, but it is on this album that Parsons true talent is revealed. He plays all instruments on most tracks, with the exception of the unequaled flat-picking of the late Clerence White on several. Banjos, fiddles, mandolins, dobros, and classic acoustic 6-string blend to produce a sound that can be appreciated by country, bluegrass and rock fans alike. Parsons writes most of the tunes, but his wonderful rendition of Lowell George's "Willin" is not to be forgotten. From the banjo-blazing of "Monument" and "Banjos Dog" to the cajun fiddle of "Take as City Bride," this one is a timeless keeper. All bluegrass fans and fans of the country-rock scene of the early seventies should give this one a try--if you can find it.

Gene Victor Parsons is an American drummer, banjo player, guitarist, singer-songwriter, and engineer, best known for his work with The Byrds from 1968 to 1972. Parsons has also released solo albums and played in bands including Nashville West, The Flying Burrito Brothers, and Parsons Green. Parsons is credited with inventing the B-Bender (also known as the StringBender) along with Clarence White and the device is often referred to as the Parsons/White B-Bender, a trademarked name
