Black Friday 2015 Limited Mono Edition on Opaque White Vinyl! GRAM PARSONS FABLED COUNTRY-ROCK CORNERSTONE In 1965, aspiring folk singer Gram Parsons was busy cutting classes at Harvard in order to explore the fertile Cambridge/Boston music scene. There, he met guitarist John Nuese, who urged Parsons to pursue a country rock sound. Enlisting Ian Dunlop on bass and Mickey Gauvin on bass, they began exploring that direction in earnest. Appropriating their name from a classic Our Gang skit, he International Submarine Band left Boston for New York, eager to find a supportive label for their new sound. After recording two poorl-selling singles (the first of which, The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming b/w Truck Driving Man is available on a Sundazed 7" vinyl reissue), the group left New York for Los Angeles, hoping to find success there. Following several false starts and missed opportunities in L.A., Dunlop and Gavin left the group, going on to found the Flying Burrito Brothers. At this point, producer Suzi Jane Hokom, who had seen the band before the breakup, convinced Lee Hazelwood to sign Parsons and Nuese to a contract for Hazelwoods LHI Records. Newly signed, the duo searched for musicians to form a new ISB lineup. Recruiting guitarist Bob Buchanan, drummer Jon Corneal, bassists Joe Osborne and Chris Etheridge, pianist Earl Ball, and steel guitarist Jay Dee Maness, the group began recording Safe at Home under Hokoms direction in July 1967. The albums final track listing included a mix of country and rock standards along with four strong Parsons-penned songs. One of those songs, Luxury Liner, would later become an album-title-track hit for future Parsons protégé Emmylou Harris. Sessions for Safe at Home were completed in December 1967, with a possible release date of February 1968. However, Parsons abruptly left the group prior to the albums release in order to join The Byrds, who were busy recording their own country rock album, Sweetheart of the Rodeo. Parsons departure upset Hazelwood and caused the release of Safe at Home to be delayed. Eventually released after the group had ceased to exist, the album was initially overshadowed by Parsons work with the Byrds, the Flying Burrito Brothers, and his solo records. In the wake of Parsons recognition as a country rock pioneer, Safe at Home grew in stature considerably. Discovered by fans lucky enough to find an original copy, the album was rightfully acknowledged as a classic. Now, Sundazed Music makes Safe at Home available to everyone through this stellar reissue. Sourced from the original analog LHI tapes, this MONO edition includes an unreleased track from the original sessions, the Marty Roberts/Guy Mitchell hit Knee Deep in the Blues.
