Beau - Beau

Probably the most neglected British songwriter of all is Beau. - Jacques Vassal, Electric Children (Taplinger 1976). The Dandelion label, formed by noted Radio 1 DJ John Peel with his manager Clive Selwood in 1969, was an attempt by both founders to put something back into the business they loved. The object was to bring deserving but hitherto unrecognised talents to the public's attention on a non-profit basis. As Clive's day job was European representative of Elektra Records, it's not surprising 'Dandy' (as it was known) majored on the singer-songwriter genre. And to Beau, alias Trevor Midgley, fell the honour of the label's first release in 1969 with the single 1917 Revolution. Later that year Dandelion released a full LP self-titled Beau and Cherry Red are delighted to announce the re-release of this beautifully written British Folk album. In August 1969, Beau's '1917 Revolution' became the first release from John Peel's now-legendary Dandelion Records. This CD - featuring Beau's self-titled first album and NINE bonus tracks - showcases the distinctive style of one of the finest 12-string guitar players to come out of the 1960s.

We also have two more of Beau's albums available for download. The Way It Was and Creation (Recreated). Both albums can be downloaded from iTunes or Amazon as well as many other legal download services around the world.
