  • The Beau Brummels' 1965 debut, with a sound hinting at jangle pop, folk rock, and proto-psychedelia, is a cozy slice of 1960's musical Americana. The San Francisco quintet borrowed much in style and structure from British Invasion bands, and in retrospect the Brummels' music compares favorably to many of their English contemporaries'. In part this has to do with the strength of the band's original material, all of which was written and arranged by guitarist and founding member Ron Elliott.
  • Elliot's songs, whether upbeat rockers such as "Stick Like Glue," or moody, minor key numbers such as "I'll Make You Cry," are powered by finely honed melodic hooks. The group's soaring, complex harmonies and expansive feel seem to foreshadow both the folk rock of The Byrds and the San Francisco sound of the late '60s. Most notably, INTRODUCING includes the Brummels' biggest hits: "Still in Love With You Baby," the moody "Cry Just a Little," and their best known song, "Laugh, Laugh," making it a fine introduction to the group's compelling '60s sound. Rock trivia fans will be delighted to learn that the album was originally produced by Sylvester Stewart (a.k.a. Sly Stone).
