Details

[Edit]

Named after a song made popular by The Everly Brothers, Sleepless Nights was originally supposed to be the title of Grievous Angel—the solo album that Gram Parsons recorded months before his death at age 26. Released as a posthumous compilation in 1976, Sleepless Nights was curated by Parsons’ protégé and singing partner Emmylou Harris. It has three outtakes from Grievous Angel and nine songs recorded live in the studio with The Flying Burrito Brothers. A sauntering cover of “Brand New Heartache” sets the tone with a honky-tonk flavor, as Parsons' and Harris’ magical high-lonesome harmonies soar above watery pedal steel notes and the rich textures of a country fiddle. Keeping with this Bakersfield sound, a cover of Merle Haggard’s “Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down” follows; Parsons hits lower harmonies alongside Chris Hillman. Another Haggard cover, “Sing Me Back Home,” serves as a reminder that the Okie from Muskogee was supposed to work with Parsons before his fatal overdose. A sleepy take on the Stones’ “Honky Tonk Women” is disturbing in its narcotic pace.
