Part-Time Audiophile | Music Sunset Canyoneers | The Vinyl Anachronist


How many of y’all love The Flying Burrito Brothers’ Gilded Palace of Sin or The Byrd’s Sweetheart of the Rodeo? How about Nashville Skyline? Despite the fact that I was alive during the great California country-rock movement of the early to late ’70s, my exposure to this music was limited to The Eagles, whose music was friggin’ everywhere. I didn’t know about the really good stuff until I was an adult and, ironically enough, no longer living in Southern California. Sunset Canyoneers‘ new album sounds plucked from that era, where the Malibu surf culture started a relatively short love affair with pedal steel guitars, Nudie suits and a style of country music that still possessed plenty of rock and roll attitude.
