I admit that the tone and quality of Gram Parsons voice is of the sort that it either grabs you and never lets you go, or you simply never get it.

Though they sound nothing alike, the same emotional quality that makes George Jones the greatest country singer of all time can be found in the best gram Parsons records.

The rock element? Certainly this is best illustrated in the 2 fabulous albums by the Flying Burrito Bros.

I like everything he ever recorded, but do acknowledge he remains a lesser known name.

Parsons himself called his style "cosmic american music" rather than country rock, a sound which can be heard today through superb artists like Sturgill Simpson and Neko Case, both of whom sell far more records to rock fans than country.

Nice of you to respond to my post.
