5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar look at the unreleased works of brilliant S.F. band, March 21, 2000
This review is from: San Fran Sessions (Audio CD)
This 3-CD set ups the ante on Rhino's previously issued "From the Vault" LP and Big Beat's single-CD "Autumn of Their Years." It is truly astounding that a band that only issued two LPs on the Autumn label would have 3 full CDs of great tracks in the vault. This LP repeats tracks from both Rhino and Big Beat's previous efforts, but extends them in a frenzy of great demos, alternative takes and unreleased tracks.
While not the best introduction to the Brummels, this is a terrifically listenable compilation. A few repeated tracks, showing some of the Brummels best songs in different stages of completion or arrangements, are a treat rather than a drudge. Lots of demo session from both Sal Valentino and Ron Elliot, including a few really great Valentino compositions that never got recorded by the full band. Also included are tracks from their aborted 3rd album.
Liner notes include recent interviews with all band members, and give some really interesting insight into the pre-hippie San Francisco scene.
Sundazed deserves an award for this one.

How this band isn't in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,shows what a sham it truly is.
