Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (12/11/03, p.124) - Ranked #117 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" - "[D]ressing Bob Dylan and Merle Haggard songs in steel guitar and rock & roll drive, setting the stage for country rock."

Rolling Stone (6/12/97, p.114) - "...Remixed and reshuffled, with Gram Parsons' vocals front and center, this sparkling reissue gives revisionist history a good name..."

Rolling Stone (9/14/68, p.20) - "...The material they've chosen to record, or rather, the way they perform the material, is simple, relaxed and folky. It's not pretentious, it's pretty. The musicianship is excellent..."

Entertainment Weekly (4/4/97, pp.81-82) - "...sounds sharper [than the original pressing]...and outtakes featuring Gram Parsons add a rustic postscript. Anyone taken with the '90s alt-country of Wilco should visit this more authentic RODEO..." - Rating: A

Musician (6/97, p.86) - "...there was a time before the Eagles, when the Byrds made the steel guitar acceptable to hippies...The 20-bit remastering seems to add overtones to everything without adding anything to the price, and the five extra cuts...offer an illuminating glimpse into how they worked..."

Blender (Magazine) (p.82) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t now sounds like a prophecy of the way Nashville and L.A. embraced each other in the '70s."
