Significant Song Number 5: "Wild Horses"- Flying Burrito Brothers Version

We will never know if this is truly a Jagger-Richards composition, solely Gram's work, or some collaboration. I suspect the latter. What is certain is that the Burritos had the first release of the song, and it is Ur-Country Rock indeed! Since several of the Burritos were in the Byrds earlier, the songs were played on the FM stations, since Country was not cool back then. Gradually, we longhairs liked some Country artists, especially the Outlaws, and some Country fans respected the hippy artists. No matter who plays the song, and it has been covered numerous times, it's simply a fine song!
