Walk into splintered sunlight
Inch your way through dead dreams to another land
Maybe you're tired and broken

Your tongue is twisted with words half spoken and thoughts unclear

Well the first days are the hardest days
Don't you worry any more
'Cause when life looks like easy street
There is danger at your door
Think this through with me
Let me know your mind
Woh, what I want to know
Is are you kind?

Beau Brummels we’re country rock?
All I remember is their 60s music: Laugh, Laugh
Just a Little
You tell me why
Check out the record! It's the last album they made in their initial run. Sal and Ron were the only 2 Brummels left and they went to Nashville to record this one.
It doesn't sound like the Eagles, no. But it is a good partner record to the Everly's "Roots", sharing songs and Ron Elliott.

The West Coast country rock from the 70s was where we got most of the songs we covered and if were an original or a cover of some earlier rock it had that sound and more importantly the harmonies.

Imagine if you can a thrash punk cover of Jailhouse Rock with Poco harmonies.

Yeah it could get weird but the crowds loved it and we gigged most nights of the week every week for years, until it wore us out and the band broke up

I keep trying to find my favorite country band.

I don’t know where Sunset Drifters are these days but I got to see them live a few times, does this sound count? “High Waisted” from the same album stands out to me.



And Patrolled by Radar- they gig around LA. Jay Souza writes some interesting lyrics, hope someone enjoys. (I think this is where country should be- pick any album.)

I'll give a shout out for honorable mention to the 3rd Flying Burrito Bros. record (1971). I think it's often overlooked because it was recorded after Gram Parsons left (fired by Chris Hillman) but I really like it. It was one of the first records to really get me listening to country. In particular I like their version of the Merle Haggard tune "White Line Fever". Rick Roberts contributes songs and wonderful vocals.

Yes! The Amazing Rhythm Aces, just one hit single but a stack of really GREAT albums!
They had at a few hits, The End Is Not In Sight, Third Rate Romance, and Dancing The Night Away.
Barry “Byrd” Burton was a fine guitarist, and Russel Smith wrote and sang great songs.
They were great live, too.
RIP, and thanks, Russel and Byrd.
