Live 1973 is a recording by Gram Parsons and the Fallen Angels. It was recorded at Sonic Studios in Hempstead, New York on March 13, 1973 during a live radio broadcast from WLIR-FM, a station located in Garden City, New York. The timing of the recording thus sandwiched it between Parsons' only two solo studio albums, GP, and Grievous Angel, although it was not released (on LP) until 1982, long after both studio albums were released and after Parsons' early death. As in Parsons' studio albums, Emmylou Harris provides duet and harmony vocals. The Fallen Angels, however, are not the same band that appeared on the two studio albums. The original album had eleven tracks, but included a 7" 45rpm record with the encore medley on side one, and an interview with Gram, Emmylou, and Jock Bartley plus a version of Hot Burrito #1 performed by Gene Parsons in tribute on the other. When later reissued on CD Rhino Records in 1994 the medley and in between song patter were added but the interview segments and the Gene Parsons track were omitted.
