SHE'S THE DEVIL IN DISGUISE
Gram Parsons turned the Stones on to country, and with former Byrds players Chris Hillman, Chris Ethridge, and the amazing "Sneaky" Pete Kleino, rolled the perfect heavy number taco, The Flying Burrito Brothers. This is the Burritos in their prime. The song is off the album "The Gilded Palace of Sin" (1969) and may be officially called "Christine's Tune," but everyone knows it as "She's the Devil in Disguise." This is pedal steel heaven. Gram's wearing a Nudie suit sporting cannabis leaves, pills, and peyote buttons, but his heart is in the right place. Salute the mighty burrito.
