The Beau Brummel's - Bradley's Barn (1968)

With the arrival of The Byrds' 'Sweetheart of the Rodeo' and The Internationl Submarine Band's 'Safe At Home' (both invloving Gram Parsons) earlier on in the year and Dylan's 'John Wesley Harding' at the tail end of 1967, elements of country were beginning to infiltrate the recent psych-dominated rock scene which had previously taken most of it's inspiration from blues and folk.

This album would be the band's fifth studio release and although not as countrified as The Byrds' release, this album should certainly rank amongst some of the earliest examples of the country-infused rock that would come into favour over the next decade.

All of the band's six albums are on Spotify and well worth a listen.
