Re: Beau Brummels vs. Los Bravos!

The Beau Brummels formed in the same general area where I was born and where I spent my early childhood. My mother got an autograph from them one time when their limo was parked out in front of her house for some reason.

I can't say I've even heard of Los Bravos.

Had you never even heard Black Is Black previously?

Which of their LPs were produced by Sly Stone, or did he produce them all?

Re: Beau Brummels vs. Los Bravos!

I read that the early singles "Laugh Laugh" and "Just a Little" were both produced by Sylvester Stewart, aka Sly Stone. Beyond that, I haven't researched.

Re: Beau Brummels vs. Los Bravos!

Sly Stone was a producer of 60's groups on the Autumn Records label. The Beau Brummels were the most commercially successful of the lot. This excellent comp covers most of the bases. A lot of the songs are in a folk/garage rock or early Rolling Stones r&b style.

Re: Beau Brummels vs. Los Bravos!

Beau Brummels were really underrated. They were the better band in my opinion.

Re: Beau Brummels vs. Los Bravos!

Los Bravos were alright, maybe better than generally thought, but The Brummels rank among the very best, both in creativity and in execution.

Re: Beau Brummels vs. Los Bravos!

The Beau Brummel(stones) were well known enough to appear on the Flintstones! For all you big Hodaddies! (at the 1 minute mark)

The chart impact of the two bands wasn't actually too much different:

Beau Brummels

Laugh, Laugh (1964) U.S.A. 15, Canada 2, Australia 78
Just a Little (1965) U.S.A. 8, Canada 4, Australia 24
You Tell Me Why (1965) U.S.A. 38, Canada 8
Don't Talk to Strangers (1965) U.S.A. 52, Canada 16, Australia 96
Good Time Music (1965) U.S.A. 97, Canada 13
One Too Many Mornings (1966) U.S.A. 95, Australia 62

It's interesting how much bigger the Beau Brummels were in Canada than in the States.

Los Bravos

Black Is Black (1966) U.S.A. 4, U.K. 2, Australia 3
I Don't Care (1966) U.K. 16, Australia 51
Going Nowhere (1966) U.S.A. 91, Australia 99
Bring a Little Lovin' (1968) U.S.A. 51, Australia 48

A decade ago I would have picked the Beau Brummels but I rediscovered Bring a Little Lovin' around eight years ago and the sound of Los Bravos really strikes a chord with me these days. Moreover I don't think Los Bravos deserve to be shut out in this one.

Re: Beau Brummels vs. Los Bravos!

I read somewhere that the band picked the name Beau Brummels so that their records would be alphabetically close to the Beatles in music store bins.

Charts don't tell the whole story. The Beau Brummels released 2 critically acclaimed albums in the late '60s, Triangle & Bradley's Barn, that have grown in stature over the years and are still sought after.
