Uncle Jesse approves this video
This song is also great but not often mentioned when people talk about the Beach boys
Mrs and my first date...Beach Boys concert--26Nov1975.
This remix album does exactly what it promises, but I like what they did here...
My favorite rock band. When I was a teen, I liked them even more than the Beatles.
Yeah, Tornado, their Warner/Reprise years are unjustly overlooked. The Sunflower and Surf's Up albums have material that would have been on the then-unreleased Capitol album Smile.
I suspect this material may have been polished up a bit by the time the Warner/Reprise albums were recorded.
I saw them around then in Evanston IL. Dennis was still with them. They opened for Chicago.
This was the only date with my companion...glad yours worked out!
I had the 'Little Deuce Coupe' album as a kid in the late '60's with only a few other records and a mono Sears 'suitcase' phonograph, and played the hell out of this album.
All cars songs, except " Be True to Your School" and " A Young Man is Gone" ( a song I would find out many years ago, is about the death of James Dean)
I just loved the sound and drive of their 4/4 Chuck Berry- influenced songs - and Carl Wilson ( and Al Jardine too) was a pretty solid guitar player.
" Shut Down" and "409" Rock!
Edit: if you've ever seen the Austin Powers movies- when Austin tries to play a CD on a red & white checkered lid Sears record player- that was mine!
( it, along my transistor radio were best friends!)
I graduated high school in’86 and at three time I really dug The Beach Boys even though they were well past their popularity height.
I don’t count “Kokomo”.
My college freshman son came home last night for the weekend and said, “Hey Dad, check out this Beach Boys song. Their harmonies are awesome”!
Good music is timeless.
and FYI it was “I get around”,
it doesn’t get much better than this…
I’m a cork on the ocean.
I always liked the BB as a kid, they were fun and sang great and 'I get Around" was a cool song. It wasn't until much later that I heard 'In My Room" but this time I really listened and found the beauty underneath the beauty so to speak. That led me to go deeper and I was amazed at how much great stuff Brian had done that I'd never heard of. I think you have to understand or sympathize a bit with Brian to let a lot of the music in and really enjoy it. I was going to post 'Till I die" but just got beaten to it so I'll go back further to another when you can hear things were starting to change.
I always liked David Marks on guitar, more so than Al - they tear this 3-chord instrumental up, copy of the AFM contact for the session attached.
I learned how to play similar to this, listening to a Danny Gatton instrumental called " Sky King"
( I guess a cover from an early TV show)
Our 'sort of Chicago style' 90's blues band used to insert cool instrumentals into our sets. That was one of them. Fun, stuff!
Even though I love pop music, I always thought of the Beach Boys as uncool growing up. It wasn't till I randomly came across this album cover in a thrift store that it dawned on me that there might be more to the Beach Boys than I had realized. The stark, merciless artwork coupled with the title "Surf's Up" is conceptual genius.
Needless to say I've been a convert for a long time now. One of my favorite bands.
If only they’d dumped Mike Love at the time of Smile, and encouraged Brian Wilson instead of sidelining him.
