SIERRA RECORDS "GRAM PARSONS-THE EARLY YEARS-Volume 1 & 2" features the compact disc release of SIERRA RECORDS's 1979 "Gram Parsons-The Early Years", 20 page booklet, plus a second, bonus disc of rare solo performances. All packaged in a special slip cover case.

This compact disc is comprised of the now classic and ground breaking, "Gram Parsons-The Early Years-Volume 1", 1963-65 folk recordings of "Gram Parsons and the Shilos" with all original tracks from this 1979 LP vinyl disc. Added to these original ten tracks is "Volume 2" of lost early recordings focusing on Gram's solo efforts recorded by Dick Weissman including several never before heard Parsons' compositions! Continuing on this expanded compact disc are recordings by "Gram Parsons & The Like", his experimental band from his brief stay in late 1965 at Harvard University. This includes a rare performance with the late actor, turned singer, Brandon deWilde. Closing out this disc is the "holy grail" of lost Gram Parsons recordings; Brandon deWilde singing lead, with Gram on "Do Right Woman" and "Hickory Wind"! You will discover for the first time where Gram found' his country' voice.

The CD is packaged with an extensive 20 page booklet with rare photos and liner notes including the original 1979 booklet notes by Mark Leviton along with detail annotations of all the songs.
