Gram Parsons and the Fallen Angels,Liberty Hall,Houston 1973

I caught Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris in Houston at Liberty Hall on Chenevert St. in 1973,my last year of living in Texas.I think they were relatively unknown around the country at that point,but certainly had a rabid following in Houston,spearheaded by a group of fans who dubbed themselves the Sin City Disciples after Gram’s Song Sin City,They had really cool embroidered jackets with a logo reminiscent of the Burrito’s Nudie Suits.Gram and Emmylou had an amazing chemistry on stage and the Fallen Angels backing band were seasoned pros.More information about this aggregation is available in a great book:20 Thousand Roads by David Meyers.
