THE BEAU BRUMMELS - IN GOOD TIME


Just realized that after 1000+ posts, I've never featured any tracks from my absolute favorite San Francisco rock n roll group; the mighty Beau Brummels!

Featuring the rich, expressive vocals of Sal Valentino and the songwriting genius of Ron Elliott, the Brummels took a cue from the British invasion, but added a distinctly California influence. This group truly started the San Francisco rock scene, although they were unfairly, unjustly and inappropriately left out of the burgeoning ballroom scene because they (gasp!) cut a few hit records. Their music has certainly stood the test of time and sounds much fresher than so much of the psychedelic excess that followed in the bay area.

While many Brummels songs feature an almost haunting moodiness, this track, in all of its fuzzy glory, raves along quite nicely in under two minutes and just makes me want MORE!

from 1965...
