The Flying Burrito Brothers : Last of the Red Hot Burritos

Bud Scoppa, Rolling Stone, 22 June 1972

The fourth – and presumably last – album of the Flying Burrito Bros. is, as it were, a departure. Not only is this album live, it's also surprisingly energetic, considering the Burritos' previous country-gaited tempos. Last of the Red Hot Burritos is a fast, pounding rock & roll record from start to finish, as if the now-disbanded group wanted to go out with a bang instead of a twang.
