Offered for sale is an original stereo copy of Triangle by the Beau Brummels, autographed by guitarist Ron Elliott.
About this copy: This copy of Triangle is an original stereo pressing on the gold Warner Brothers label. The disc is M- and appears to have had little, if any play. The cover is VG, with some ring wear, a punch hole, and a repaired seam split on the spine. The LP has been autographed “To Paul” by guitarist and songwriter Ron Elliott in ballpoint pen. We’re told by the person from whom we acquired the album that it was signed in the early to mid-1970s.
A nice copy of a terrific album.
Background: Though they made a number of good records, Triangle is regarded by many critics to be the band’s high point. While it didn’t contain any hits, the album offers a solid mix of folk, country and pop.
AllMusic gave it 4 1/2 stars:
The jewel in the Beau Brummels’ crown, Triangle was an unexpected departure from the band’s earlier hit-making formula — and demonstrated Ron Elliott’s growing maturation as a songwriter. All the band’s signature styles (folk, country swing, and Brit-pop) are still heard in the mix, but the tunes here assume an added aura of mysticism. Buried commercially by the likes of Sgt. Pepper, Triangle shared its premise of songs loosely united by a common theme — in this case, a ruminative dream cycle (though to call Triangle a concept album might be overstating the case). Too long ignored by rock cognoscenti, Triangle is (all hyperbole aside) a fine album which deserves to be heard by a wider audience.
