Rustic like the Byrds' Sweethearts of the Rodeo, with intricate arrangements that would make Brian Wilson and Randy Newman proud, Bradley's Barn bridges two of California's chief exports during the mid to late '60s: country rock and psychedelic sunshine pop. Guitarist and composer Ron Elliott grew up listening to Tin Pan Alley, while vocalist Sal Valentino somehow channeled both Dylan and Dino. Recorded in Nashville in 1968, this is a bizarre mix all around, but the Brummels are one of the 60s great unsung heroes.
