BEAU is the performing name of Christopher John Trevor Midgley. '..remarkable writer & performer..'-John Peel (May 1971)

BEAU signed to the now infamous label DANDELION RECORDS in 1968 and in July 1969 was the very first artist to release a single on the late JOHN PEEL's fledgling label '1917 Revolution' making it to the Number 1 slot in Lebanon! Two albums followed 'Beau' in 1969 and 'Creation' in 1971. In mid 1972 Beau and The Way We Live (now renamed TRACTOR) went into the studio to record his third album provisionally titled 'High Mass'. Dandelion then folded and the recordings from that session have sat in the can until now. The five tracks from that 1972 session are on this release as well as tracks recorded by Beau from that period 1975 to 1985. In his 1976 book 'Electric Children' JAQUES VASSAL wrote 'probably the most neglected songwriter of all is Beau'. We could not have put it better. JOHN PEEL however said 'A remarkable writer and performer of songs and well worth listening to under any circumstances'. Musicians: BEAU, JIM MILNE and STEVE CLAYTON.
