Song Of The Day: The Beach Boys, “Sweet Sunday Kind Of Love”

A rare jewel of a song taken from the last you’d expect to find it, one of brother Carl’s nicest later-era performances.

The Beach Boys: 1967: Sunshine Tomorrow (Capitol Records)

1967 wasn’t a good year for The Beach Boys, and it especially wasn’t good for Brian Wilson’s psyche. But the year did produce one of their greatest albums, the highly underrated Wild Honey. This two-disc collection examines the lesser-explored post-Smile Beach Boys era, even though the biggest selling point of this generous rarities collection deserved to stay unreleased.

The Beach Boys: Beach Boys’ Party! Uncovered and Unplugged (Capitol)

Conventional wisdom has it that the Beach Boys’ tenth album, Beach Boys’ Party!, was a toss-off. But this double-disc reissue of the album sheds new light into the making of a peculiar, somewhat misunderstood record, and offers a peek into the production talents of Brian Wilson.

Becoming The Beach Boys, 1961-1963 (McFarland)

Becoming The Beach Boys is the first truly exhaustive, in-depth biography of the formative years of America’s Band. It’s an unbiased look into their early years, and does quite a bit of myth-busting.
