Hot Burrito #1 / Hot Burrito #2

These companion pieces from The Gilded Palace of Sin were penned by Gram Parsons and Burritos bass player Chris Ethridge during a single writing session. According to band cofounder Chris Hillman, "#1" was inspired by Parsons' breakup with Nancy Parsons, nee Ross, who took his name though they never officially married. "I only heard two great vocals out of that guy: 'Hot Burrito #1' and 'Hot Burrito #2,'" Hillman said of his Byrds/Burritos partner. "The rest of it was good, and there was a lot of soul; he was a very emotional singer. But those two vocals were tearjerkers — they give you chills."
