Was the International Submarine Band the first country-rock band ever! This groundbreaking, Gram Parsons-led combo predates his hooking up with the Byrds and later forming the Flying Burrito Bros., so maybe it was. Much better than arguing over who came first, however, is to just roll back the rug, dim the lights and wallow in the thick smoke and loud, loud music of the ISB's electrified honky tonk. Bursting with confidence, the very young Gram Parsons lets it all hang out in his most heartfelt, George Jones-style, flipping a calling-card at the world that he's arrived!

                A half-hearted Harvard University theology student in 1965, Gram Parsons wasn’t really thrilled about attending classes. He much preferred hanging around the fervent Cambridge/Boston folk scene, playing with many musicians until he met guitarist John Nuese. Nuese encouraged Parsons to steer away from folk toward a more country direction, setting Parsons on the path that would eventually win him international acclaim. Lifting the name from a classic “Our Gang” skit, Parsons and Nuese formed the...
