  • Beach Boys - Smiley Smile/Wild Honey + Bonus (CD)

    13,00

    ”The spring 2001 version of this two-LP-on-one-CD compilation, in 24-bit sound, is the best way ever to hear either of these albums. Smiley Smile was one of the most genial and unpretentious examples of psychedelic music to emerge in 1967, although at the time it was a difficult album for many fans to appreciate. A lot of it is comprised of what amounts to languid, almost impressionist sound paintings, some of them, such as ”Wonderful” and ”Wind Chimes,” quite stunningly beautiful, and others, such as ”Vegetables,” beguiling in their innocent goofiness, while still others, like ”With Me Tonight,” combined those attributes. The 2001 reissue finally lifts about as many layers of hiss — a result of the use of a makeshift studio, and overdubs on many of the cuts — as are ever likely to disappear, to get at the music and how it must have sounded to the group when they played it back. Thus, one can hear the action of the bass on ”Vegetables” and ”Heroes and Villains,” and the playing and singing on ”Wind Chimes” all now seem several feet closer to the microphone than on previous issues; the opening on ”Gettin’ Hungry” now leaps out of the extended silence off the fade from ”Wind Chimes.” Wild Honey was, even more than its companion album, an unfairly maligned effort in its own time — Smiley Smile had a realistically druggy ambience that was, understandably, harder to take than the highly produced psychedelic efforts of the Beatles and others; but Wild Honey was a solid, accessible, soulful rock & roll release, every song a little jewel (and a few, like the title cut and ”Darlin’,” quite weighty) that ought to have been on every stack of platters for any teenage dance party thrown over the next decade. The album always had a good sound, and the 2001 reissue only makes a great record even better, pushing the clarity to a higher level — the drumming on the title tune, ”Aren’t You Glad,” or ”I Was Made to Love Her” is as prominent as the vocals, which are all awesome, and it’s also easier to appreciate the little details, like the exquisite bass workout in the rhythm section of ”I Was Made to Love Her” — and the massed vocals on ”Country Air” are so clean and radiant here that it’s like hearing the song for the first time. The compilation is augmented with some fascinating early working versions of ”Good Vibrations,” the lost B-side ”You’re Welcome,” an alternate take of ”Heroes and Villains” from the Smile album sessions, plus a rehearsal of ”Their Hearts Were Full of Spring” from a 1967 concert, and the lost (and exquisite) Smile album artifact ”Can’t Wait Too Long” — alas, there evidently weren’t any Wild Honey leftovers. Note: Capitol previously issued a version of this disc in 1990, with a duller, hissier sound; it should be replaced by the version carrying the 2001 date. ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide”

  • Beach Boys - Surfin` Safari/Surfin`USA + Bonus (CD)

    13,00

    ”The usual perception of the Beach Boys’ early albums is that they’re primarily for completists and principally of historical interest. This CD goes a long way toward dispelling that myth. The group’s first two LPs were originally compiled together on one CD in 1990 as part of a reissue of their complete Capitol output, and were upgraded in March of 2001. Although neither album shows the group near its very best, they hold up remarkably well 40 years later. Surfin’ Safari was recorded in such a rush after the title track became a hit that the group was forced to draw on whatever songs Brian Wilson and collaborator Gary Usher had come up with as part of their weekly writing sessions. Still, there’s some very good music here beyond ”Surfin’ Safari,” ”409,” and ”Surfin'”: the lost surf hit ”Chug-a-Lug”; the doo wop-style ”Little Miss America,” on which Dennis Wilson and company step into Dion & the Belmonts territory; and a credible cover of ”Summertime Blues.” Even the slightly lesser material such as ”Moon Dawg,” a cover of a surf classic by the Gamblers that’s one of Carl Wilson’s best early guitar showcases, ”Cuckoo Clock,” and ”The Shift,” all generic surfbeach music, is attractive. Surfin’ U.S.A. was done with a little more time and more control by the group and Brian, and it shows. From the opening title cut, the album never lets up — ”Farmer’s Daughter” is a gorgeous surf tune with a killer lead falsetto by Brian; ”Miserlou,” ”Stoked,” ”Honky Tonk,” ”Surf Jam,” and ”Let’s Go Trippin'” were brilliant instrumentals showing off the group’s (especially Carl Wilson’s) virtuosity even at this early date; ”Lonely Sea” was the first example of Brian writing and singing in a melancholy, reflective mood, and was a distant prelude to songs like ”Don’t Worry Baby” and the entire Pet Sounds album; ”Shut Down” was their second great car song (”409” being their first); and ”Noble Surfer,” ”Lana,” and ”Finders Keepers” were great rockers with beautiful vocal and instrumental hooks, the latter’s chorus a good-natured send-up of the Four Seasons’ sound on ”Big Girls Don’t Cry.” The bonus tracks include a hit that should have been, a surf-style cover of the 1950s Tarriers and Eddie Fisher hit ”Cindy, Oh Cindy” that’s worth the price of the CD just to get it; and ”Land Ahoy” is an achingly beautiful rock & roll ballad that, for reasons impossible to fathom, never made the cut from the Surfin’ Safari album, but was later transmuted into ”Cherry, Cherry Coupe.” [The March 2001 upgrade made a significant improvement in the sound over the 1990 version, with a much closer, more vivid presence to the instruments and richer textures on the vocals.] ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide [*] =Bonus track”

  • Beach Boys - Christmas With (CD)

    13,00

    The Beach Boys were the ultimate summer band, their songs full of sun, surfboards, and endless waves of good vibrations, but it is always interesting to remember how many of those bright productions featured sleigh bells as part of their rhythm tracks, as if Brian Wilson wanted to stick a little bit of winter in there. So it should come as no surprise that the Beach Boys recorded two Christmas albums, the first, The Beach Boys’ Christmas Album, in 1964, and a second unreleased set, Merry Christmas With the Beach Boys, a decade later. This disc essentially combines both projects, throwing in some alternate mixes and minutiae, and replicates 1998’s Ultimate Christmas release (minus one track, the inconsequential Christmas Time Is Here Again”) right down to the same track sequence. If the Beach Boys favored sleigh bells in summer, then their bright and sunny vocals brought warmth into the dead of winter, as well, particularly with their classic holiday single, ”Little Saint Nick,” featured in three different versions here, including an alternate take (heavy on saxes) sung over the backing track to ”Drive-In.” ”Merry Christmas, Baby” is another example of Brian simply moving the proven and successful Beach Boys formula to a different season. The alternate mix of ”Auld Lang Syne” (the one without Dennis Wilson’s spoken interjections) spotlights the gorgeous multi-tracked harmonies of the group, while the cluttered kitchen sink production of ”Child of Winter (Christmas Song)” shows how complicated Beach Boys arrangements could get when left unchecked. The real gem of this set, though, aside from the sleigh bell-, glockenspiel-, and celesta-laced original 1963 single version of ”Little Saint Nick,” is Dennis’ haunting ”Morning Christmas,” which is elegantly and stunningly arranged, carrying some of the mysterious power and allure of the season. Capitol releases a version of this holiday material every year or two, and while it won’t change your opinion of the Beach Boys one way or the other, that’s exactly why it’s worth picking up at half price in the post-Christmas CD sale at your local music store. ~ Steve Leggett, All Music Guide”
