Beach Boys Stars and Stripes

RXPEJE-63

Great Duets album For those who say this is not a beach boys album your right in a way but ........ NOT. This is an ablum of music by the beach boys with the beach boys singing back up and harmonies and country artists singing lead. so its a sort of a strange take on surf music, yet its still good.

Some Gems

Thanks to the previous reviews, I downloaded Willie Nelson and Lorrie Morgan. Both take a nice new spin on the old tunes. The other selections only prove why the Boys can never be duplicated. Even by themselves. A good idea largely wasted on the wrong mix of talents.

Surprise surprise!

I love duet albums (like BB King and Eric Clapton's etc). I'm not all that country, but this is a striking mix. Obviously more than a duet, but wow! the mix has the harmonies and highs of the Boys of my HiSchool days and a pleasant jigger of Southern Comfort. Junior Brown could almost convert me the other way.

A Late Convert... Thanks to this Album!

Never been really into the Beach Boys.. I was too busy with the Stones and couldn't see the relevance of all that Beach stuff in the dreary old UK. Fast forward 40 years and all of a sudden it hit me!! For me, Lorrie Morgan (who I'd never heard of) really makes this album. Oh, and the Willy Nelson track is great too! So, what do we have.. the Beach Boys songs, with the same great harmonies, but much better lead vocals. I've listened to this hundreds of times and never get bored. Maybe they could do another one with people like Tom Petty, Morrisey or maybe even Lou Reed? More Please!

Tribute complilation

Neptuneman08

Besides Kathy Traccoli, this isn't very good covers of the beach boys sound. Even with the guys in the background with each collaboration, bad mixing (huge reverb), off-key harmonies, and outdated effects. If ya need a Beach Boys tribute, I recomend "When God Smiles"

Not Great, But Could Be Worse

MatthewCMurray

To the people saying this is not the Beach Boys, you're right in a way: they are not singing lead. However, they ARE singing backup on every track. I've had this album since either the year it came out or the year after (got it for Christmas but not quite sure which year) and it's all right...but the production is sterile and the arrangements are rather bland. If you're a Beach Boy diehard like me, you'll want this; if not, you may wish to look elsewhere.

Who Are…Bleached

By Tobi Vail, Contributor

When women and girls listen to love songs written by and/or performed by men, we have to filter stuff out, switch pronouns and, often, navigate a sexist point of view. After a lifetime of listening to male-dominated pop music I'm used to making these kinds of adjustments in my head, but I still feel starved for love songs that I can actually identify with and dance to without a power struggle. This drives me to… more »

Who Is…Dent May

By Austin L. Ray, Contributor

"Don't wanna be chasin' that rent money for the rest of my life," Dent May sings on Do Things' opening track, "Just need somebody to hold me at night." While the music takes a step toward a fuller, synth-and-beat heavy sound (the titular Magnificent Ukulele of his debut album is long gone), the lyrics hint at the lovelorn loverman persona May has cultivated in his previous output. Aside from the trials and travails of relationships,… more »

The Smile Sessions: The Story Behind the Box

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

Over the course of innumerable sessions in 1966 and 1967, the Beach Boys labored over what was to have been their magnum opus, Smile: a lavishly orchestrated suite of "modular" songs by the group's chief songwriter and resident genius Brian Wilson and lyricist Van Dyke Parks. Smile grew and grew, with hundreds of song fragments piling up — until May, 1967, when the project fell apart. For more than 40 years, there have been rumors that… more »

The Smile Sessions: The Making and the Maker

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

To finish. That is the unacknowledged trick of great art - completing a journey that begins with conception and arrives at the concluding moment when all decisions are made and chiseled into stone. As Brancusi, no mean sculptor himself, would say: "To see far is one thing, going there is another." In 1966, Brian Wilson tuned his radio telescope to the ends of the universe to craft what would have been his - and the Beach… more »

Icon: The Beach Boys

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

This year, the Beach Boys celebrate their half century — silver surfers all. Theirs is a family saga that, in the midst of unrivaled siblings and a belief in the transcendental meditation that is music, captures a moment in spatial time that hangs like a wave on 10, the suspension of a board as it rides the implacable power of the ocean, held in perfect balance between the tides. In the creative tension between their… more »

Six Degrees of The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds

By Rachael Maddux, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

Dennis Wilson: Like the River to the Sea

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

He was the middle brother. The one who lived the life they sang about, the surf and the cars and the girls, not necessarily in that birth order. Since he got to experience it first hand, they hardly ever let him within the inner creative circle, where the harmonies flourished. They gave him the drums, keepin 'the beat, let his voice roughen their vocal blend, hardly took him seriously. Within the sibling rivalries of the… more »
