Parsons Remembered With New Reissues, Documentary

Alt-country pioneer Gram Parsons is the subject of a three-disc collection of music and a new film documentary both released Tuesday (June 20). The Complete Reprise Sessions (Rhino) includes remastered versions of his two solo albums, GP and Grievous Angel, as well as a third disc of alternate versions of songs from those two albums. Emmylou Harris, who was Parsons’ singing partner on both albums, co-produced the set. In addition, a new Parsons documentary, Fallen Angel, (Rhino Entertainment), directed and produced by Gandulf Hennig, was also released Tuesday on DVD. It features interviews with Harris as well as Peter Buck, James Burton, Chris Hillman, Phil Kaufman and Keith Richards.
