 Notes & Reviews
 
EU-only two CD set in digipak with comprehensive booklet. Volume 6 - 1973: The leading edge of the country rock scene was shifting from Los Angeles to Austin. In March 1973, Crawdaddy magazine highlighted the Austin for the first time. Pretty soon, everyone was catching on. In September, Billboard devoted a full page to Austin, calling out Willie Nelson, Doug Sahm, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Billy Joe Shaver. The original standard-bearers of Country Rock, the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers, had lost their way, but their guru, Gram Parsons, made two of the finest LPs of any era. Parsons' work is the cornerstone of our last two volumes. But we detour to Austin to catch Doug Sahm, Jerry Jeff Walker, the Lost Gonzo Band, and Willie Nelson. We gather the best of the era's country rock from Nashville, New York, San Francisco, and all points in-between. Here are the era's greatest recordings and the stories behind them.
