FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS
Seattle Pop Festival 1969 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Seattle Pop Festival, Woodinville, WA; June 27, 1969. Live at Wynona, MN; May 1970. Good to very good soundboard?

Thanks to the person who shared this on the net in 2005.

Here are some comments posted at bbchron.blogspot:

This is a well-travelled bootleg release that combines two shows together, the first is the full show from the Seattle Pop Festival in July 1969, and featuring the original lineup (with Gram parsons and Chris Ethridge). The second part are some tracks from a show in Wynona, MN in May 1970. By this time, Chris Ethridge had left and was replaced by Bernie Leadon (with Chris Hillman shifting to bass and Bernie playing lead guitar).

Although Gram was still technically in the band at this point, he had become unreliable (due to lack of interest and discipline, and the start of his drug problem), not showing up, missing gigs, etc., and was not present at this show. Within the next month Gram would be officially booted from the band… For now, just sit back and enjoy these fine, early vintage FBB shows.

  13. princess, you certainly have a loud bark! You should know all about mistakes, you’re the biggest one your parents ever made. Do you get a lot of practice being an idiot, or does it come naturally? Are you mad because Hello Kitty said goodbye to you? Is it true that you once tried to wake up a sleeping bag? Thanks for being here, princess, faces like yours were made for the internet.

  19. W.I.A.S.F.V.: Now I know who has been sending me all that SPAM!! For everyone else that is trying to understand his posting, here’s some translation: proportion means propose; approximately means about; look equals seeing; Injury means Compensation.

    But I still don’t know who it was written to!

    one. A must read article!

    By Immigration Advisers Graves end on Apr 7, 2013

  21. IAFe: Since when is a Flying Burrito Bros. concert a must READ ARTICLE? And to whom did you direct your post?

    By 5yrsnojob on Apr 7, 2013

  22. good one Mark thanks for putting her in her place,lol

  23. I know Gram was in the band in May of ‘70 because I saw then at The Capital Theater in Portchester, NY on May 22nd. That being said, he was still scared up from a motorcycle accident so maybe they were playing some dates without him? BTW, Chris played bass then, not guitar, at the MN. gig. This is a similar lineup that they used later on when Gram was let go and Rick hadn’t yet joined, ie the version in Festival Express. But Gram is definitely not singing on the Mn. recording. Bernie’s singing lead with Chris on top.

    By Tokyo on Sep 13, 2013

  24. Sorry, I stand corrected, that is Gram singing in Wynonna. He was still in the band then and it sure sounds like him. According to Einarson’s book, the motorcycle accident happened after this tour and the N-East tour including The Capital Theater. But I hung with him for a while that day after sound check and he showed me the scars from the accident. So I’m not sure of anything other then he was in the band on May 22,1970 and had scars already from the accident. After a second listen, it sounds like him in Mn. But Chris was definiteley back on bass replacing Ethridge

    By Tokyo on Sep 13, 2013

  25. Not only was I at the Winona performance, the band I was in opened for the FBB”s and I can say Gram Parsons was in the band, which you can plainly hear from the recording. Chris played bass and Bernie on lead guitar. I have the original recording of this concert and it was done on a reel to reel, they even acknowledge the fact that it’s being recorded. They performed at Winona State University and blew every ones mind with a musical style no one had ever heard before

    By Mudcat on Apr 8, 2014

  26. Mudcat, do you have a tape of the complete show, and if so, any chance of making it available ? thanks

    By doggs on May 24, 2014

  27. except for the 3rd song title this seems to be all the material there is from that particular performance. this is the info from the sugarmeg copy -

    http://tela.sugarmegs.org/_asxtela/asxcards/FlyingBurritoBrothers1970-05-24MemorialHallGymWinonaStateCollegeMN.html

    as u can see they have a date of 5-24 and it seems to be 21mins42secs in length. i didnt check around but it is possible that another site might have a longer more complete recording if it was brdcst that way. in all likelihood the reason that only 21+ mins of this has stood the test of time is that perhaps thats all that was actually brdcst even if more was recorded.

    there are 23 fbb items on sugarmeg with only 3 of them having gram on them. one of them is not worth listening to at all. there are 2-3 others out there ive seen with gram however of vg or better quality that arent on that list. they did pepperland in 70 as well. and i dont recall if it was 69 or 70 but i know they played the warehouse in new orleans also. course if it was late 70 it wouldnt be with gram of course. i havent had the tape in my collection since 12 yrs ago and i havent listened to it since i first got it in the early 90s or late 80s.
