More often than not I get introduced to a band or artist through a reference and sometimes a tribute album. I didn’t truly appreciate Neil Young until I heard The Bridge tribute album, I’m Your Fan was my first introduction to Leonard Cohen, and I didn’t appreciate The Grateful Dead until I heard Deadicated. Gram Parsons (as a solo artist) has just come on my radar via the excellent tribute album Return Of The Grievous Angel. This is in turn led me to Gram Parsons solo albums G.P. and The Grievous Angel. I guess it's no surprise since he is often regarded as the father of alternative country-a genre, which I am very found of.
