Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 12/26/96, pp.190-192
"...Blessed with an astonishing singer in Sal Valentino and a prodigious songwriter in guitarist Ron Elliott, the Brummels were San Francisco's missing link between Beatlemania and the Fillmore boom..."
Q - 9/96, p.129
4 Stars - Excellent - "...How the Beau Brummels...transformed themselves into one of the truly great American pop groups...remains a mystery....Some of the folk-rock here rivals The Byrds in the beauty stakes..."

Product Description:

Beau Brummels: Sal Valentino (vocals); Ron Elliot (guitar); Ron Meagher (bass); John Peterson (drums).
Compilation producers: Bob Irwin, Jud Cost.
This Beau Brummels box set contains entirely previously unreleased and rare material.
If you're looking for all the Beau Brummels you'll ever need, you've come to the right place. This three-disc set collects all of the band's 1964-66 sessions for Autumn Records, the San Francisco-based indie owned by legendary deejay Tom Donahue and producer Sylvester Stewart (who would go on to become the (in)famous Sly Stone). Hits like "Laugh Laugh" and "Just A Little" are present, of course, but every song here is a small gem of jangly California folk-rock.
The Beau Brummels made plenty of great music after their switch to Warner Brothers Records--new producer Lenny Waronker helmed those great Harper's Bizarre, Van Dyke Parks and Randy Newman albums, after all--but the core of their legend is contained on these three discs. Informative liner notes by Jud Cost of the '60s pop zine Cream Puff War and remastered sound add even greater value.
