Limited edition high-quality 180 gram vinyl LP reissue from 1970.
As the chief songwriter and guitarist of the Beau Brummels, Ron Elliott was the prime creative force behind one of the most underrated rock groups of the 1960s. He was not the chief voice of the group, however, which usually backed the outstanding lead vocals of Sal Valentino. That may have been one of the reasons that Elliott's sole solo album, The Candlestickmaker, sank without a trace when it was released as the 1960s turned into the 1970s. The rare LP was the culmination of Elliott's journey from pop-rock hitmaker to subdued country-folk-rock singer-songwriter, using many top-level L.A. session players on a record that put his own singing front and center for the first time.
