I know nothing about this band, according to Discogs  the band members were Tot Taylor and Dale Hargreaves.

This was their only single although they did have a track called Sparkletones featured on the album A Young Person´s Guide To Compact.

Dale was also in the band The Vye who released just one single Five Hours ‘Til Tonight which I have posted.

Also posted is  Scared To Death by  Dale Hargreaves Flamingos, which I believe to be Dale.

The Beautiful Americans was released on The Compact Organization label, home of Marie Wilson and Virna Lindt

Tot Taylor -real name Robert Dennis William Taylor- has also worked with stable mate Marie Wilson in her backing band The Imaginations using the name Teddy Johns. He also has released solo albums as Tot Taylor.

    Mike, I was really blown away by this upload of yours. This is the very first time I hear about this band. I tried to find info about this other band you mention, The Compact Organisation, but could find anything anywhere! I must admit you made me very curious. If you ever feel like uploading some material from them, I would really love to hear it. Regards.
