The Flying Burrito Bros is the third album by the country rock group The Flying Burrito Brothers, released in 1971. Before recording sessions for the album began, Gram Parsons would leave the band for a solo career, leaving Chris Hillman and "Sneaky" Pete Kleinow to carry on. In Parsons' place, the band hired a young unknown musician named Rick Roberts,[2] who later was the lead singer of Firefall. Leadon would then go on to lead the Eagles, starting with their eponymous debut album in 1972.
