Akin to so many profoundly influential works of art, GP had auspicious beginnings. Parsons spent 1971 palling around with Rolling Stone Keith Richards, who, originally, was tabbed to produce. But logistical circumstances ultimately led to putting Rik Grech behind the boards. He performed on and presided over sessions that witnessed Parsons redefining music via aching ballads, gospel-styled weepers, honky-tonk barn-burners, and rollicking shuffles. GP never cracked the Billboard album charts or yielded a hit single. But time has testified on behalf of its magnificence and importance. Parsons is now seen as the golden god of country rock, and for good reason. As for his goals? He once said that he wanted to unite the people in overalls (country) with those adorned in velvet (rock). Consider the mission accomplished. GP is a temple that contemporary leaders such as Wilco, the Decemberists, the Jayhawks, and myriad others worship.
