I have most all their official vinyl releases, but this box set has a lot of the Magic Hollow - The Beau Brummels - Magic Hollow (Vinyl) stuff I would have bought one when it was released, but was just worried about high-end boosts that ruin so many re-issue packages for me. I've got some sets which I won't name that were it not for the high-end would be great, Magic Hollow - The Beau Brummels - Magic Hollow (Vinyl).
But the high-end is so painfully boosted that I almost never listen to them. Think I'll search this set out though Hi, Thanks for the comments everyone. I pulled the trigger and yes indeed most everything is right about this set on my first listen. I don't buy much in the way of CDs anymore, preferring vinyl most of the time. Almost every CD I buy these days totally fatigues me with high-end boosts.
But I'm very happy about this set. Almost anything Beau Brummels is going to hit the mark for material as far as I'm concerned, but I'm very surprised and happy about the sound quality on this one, ditto the mono choices, and the apparent light touch on the high-end mastering This is a great set, well worth it, and I'll join in on the recommendation.

The place was noisy and crowded with young people and I could see Ritchie was doing good business. Waiters were running around serving drinks and customers were dancing to some pre-recorded Magic Hollow - The Beau Brummels - Magic Hollow (Vinyl) 40 music, waiting for the live performance to begin. Ritchie was very accommodating and told me whatever I wanted to eat or drink was on the house that night. He was also kind enough to invite me to stay in the spare bedroom at his home if I had no overnight accommodations.
It was evident he knew how to treat a business guest and was the type of man a band would want as their manager. I sat back and prepared to hear what they had to offer; Ritchie came over to join me. I let him know that, although I appreciated his hospitality, I was always honest with my opinion when it came to music. I wasn't about to tell him he had a group worth recording unless I was impressed. He said he appreciated that and wanted only my professional opinion.
I actually thought the group was little more than average when I heard them. They might have been great for San Mateo, but their playing was no better than many groups working in Los Angeles.
However, the big difference was the Beau Brummels had Ron Elliot, a band member I believed to be an exceptional songwriter. This put the Beau Brummels' potential above average in my opinion, for it was always the material that came first. Whether I'm considering a group, a singer or an instrumental record, the material was always the most important aspect of the project.
