GP is American singer-songwriter Gram Parsons' debut solo album. It was originally released in a gatefold sleeve in 1973. GP received critical acclaim upon release, but failed to reach the Billboard charts.

Grievous Angel is the second solo album by Gram Parsons, compiled from summer 1973 sessions and released four months after his death from a morphine and alcohol overdose in September 1973. Grievous Angel peaked at number 195 on the Billboard charts.

Gram Parsons fondness for drugs and high living are said to have been catching up with him while he was recording Grievous Angel, and sadly he wouldn't live long enough to see it reach record stores, dying from a drug overdose in the fall of 1973. This album is a less ambitious and unified set than his solo debut, but that's to say that .

Gram Parsons was loath to describe his music as country-rock. He preferred the phrase cosmic American music to express his sonic stew of blues, country, soul, gospel, and rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until his sophomore solo album, Grievous Angel, that this vision was fully formed-despite a looser musicianship on his part due to substance abuse catching up with him. This is evident with a puffier-faced Parsons on the album cover and his slack vocals contrasting Emmylou Harris’ in-the-pocket singing in the opening duet, Return of the Grievous Angel.
