Album Review

Rhino rolls on with the fifth installment of their excellent country series, Heroes of Country Music. This time out, country-rock -- or, as it might be referred to, alt-country roots -- is on the menu, with classics from Gram Parsons (via the International Submarine Band and the Flying Burrito Brothers), the Byrds, Bob Dylan, Delaney & Bonnie, and the Everly Brothers. There are also some fine contributions by such often-overlooked country rockers as Michael Nesmith and Commander Cody, not to mention latter-day chart-toppers like Marshall Tucker Band, Pure Prairie League, and Linda Ronstadt. A welcome chronicle of a genre often overlooked.
