Trading Places present a reissue of Introducing The Beau Brummels , originally released in 1965. Despite borrowing the name of a historic English dandy and drawing from the sound of The Beatles , influential beat group The Beau Brummels was formed in San Francisco in 1964, when Italian-American singer Sal Valentino needed a backing band for a nightclub residency; Sal brought childhood friend Ron Elliott on board as guitarist and chief songwriter, who drafted bassist Ron Meagher , drummer John Petersen , and rhythm guitarist Declan Mulligan . Signing to the newly-formed Autumn Records through their manager's media connections, their early recording sessions, produced by future funk hero Sly Stone , yielded the monster hit "Laugh Laugh", which peaked at number 15, despite being issued by a small independent; it is widely cited as a forerunner to the San Francisco Sound that emerged later in the decade. Follow-up hit "Just A Little" soon cracked the top-ten, both tracks helping debut album Introducing to reach the top 25 on Billboard's album charts.
