Who are these guys? Why are they no longer "Flying?"
Their sound is remarkable and makes you think, “hey, they have ‘that’ sound.” Their new album Notorious Burrito Brothers could possibly never reach the ears of those who need to hear sincere and wholesome Americana music. Songs that make you relax and say, “yep.” The music that morphed organically from the Laurel Canyon scene of the 60s, groups such as The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, and eventually Firefall and the Eagles. The sound that was christened the “LA Sound.”
Chris James, the current lead vocalist and one of the carriers of the Burrito Brother torch, was kind enough to share his words and humor in this show. As for the anthology of the Flying Burrito Brothers, now Burrito Brothers, please listen and enjoy.
Better yet, listen to the new album. It says it all.
