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!
