Mojo (Publisher) - p.113

Record Collector (magazine) - p.88

Product Description:

Beau Brummels: Ron Elliott, Sal Valentino.
Additional personnel: Jerry Reed (guitar); David Briggs (keyboards); Norbet Putnam (bass); Kenneth Buttrey (drums).
Recorded at Bradley's Barn, Nashville, Tennessee in 1968. Includes liner notes by Richie Unterberger.
After taking the Beau Brummels to the pop/folk psychedelic edge, producer Lenny Waronker took the band to Nashville, literally. Possibly influenced by the Byrds Sweetheart experiments, the group (now down to just Sal Valentino on vocals and Ron Elliott on guitars) wedded with Nashville's finest, including guitarist Jerry Reed and drummer Kenneth A. Buttrey, both veterans of Dylan's Nashville sessions. These players were not just good musicians, but smart musicians, easily embellishing the Elliott/Valentino duo as if they had been playing with the two for years, not days. The resulting masterpiece, no doubt due to the awesome Brummels original songs (especially "Cherokee Girl," "Turn Around," and "Deep Water"), is a virtual tapestry in country and rock. ~ Matthew Greenwald
