“Turn around, summer’s almost over”


I didn’t even realize that we’d passed the solstice.  But that’s how Summer goes.

I don’t know why I haven’t made a Beau Brummels post yet.  Though not as prolific or flashy as their LA contemporaries the Byrds (in all candor, they even scooped the Byrds, having formed earlier in 1964), this band played a critical role in the development of countrified pop rock.  This tune is from their outstanding and mature Nashville session Bradley’s Barn.  I also include the Everly Brothers cover from their Roots record which was arranged in part by Brummels founder Ron Elliott.

  1. I was just listening to “Two Days Til Tomorrow” on a Rising Storm podcast. Good stuff. I’d never heard ’em before.
