The Beau Brummels, taking their name from George Bryan "Beau" Brummell, who was a model dandy in British society in the 1800s, originally formed in San Francisco in 1964. The band's debut single, "Laugh Laugh" helped break them into the mainstream and would later be cited as helping to establish the San Francisco Sound. By 1968, Sal Valentine (lead vocals) and guitarist Ron Elliottt were a duo when they stepped into Owen Bradley's studio in Mt. Juliet, TN, about a half hour outside Nashville. With legendary producer Lenny Waronker in tow and backed by some of Nashville's finest session musicians, they conjured up an intimate and heartbreaking final stop on their five year journey from British-folk rockers to alternative country obscurity. What they created was like nothing else and has stood the test of time. This deluxe expanded edition for Record Store Day pulls together the homespun, inviting and timeless music created in Bradley's Barn and adds a bonus LP of demo recordings that are finally making their debut on vinyl.
