| Original Beach boys...Best of the Best
Although nothing...and I mean nothing could compare to seeing the original Beach Boys in concert. (that's why this is 9-out-of-10)..in top form (after they got away from their dad and prior to Brian's inner-turmoil issues that got exploited and only made it worse)...is this inside look at them...with the creativity and 'do whatever we want attitude' of the blues bros writing, this is one to see and learn from...

However, going back to the Beach Boys...Before Dennis died and during their resurgence of popularity in the mid-late 1970's...the original Beach Boys had put everything into their art...getting Bryan back to some sort of reality, who was a TRUE CREATIVE GENIUS...letting Dennis actually beat the drums the way he saw fit (he was a real Surfer ya'know)...and of course those harmonizing vocal chords of Mike Love, Bryan & Carl (who could play and sing at the same time, like Brian)...This was a special, special show...as they often teamed up w/ local, natl. orchestras to perform their sold out arena shows...it was a blend of real Beach Boy harmony, guided by the day's technology and the exacting ears of those guys and their crew made it one of the best shows that you would ever see and hear...I'll always remember looking over and seeing an 'old surfer' leaning back w/ his eyes gently closed and taking in the memories and pet sounds from 15 years earlier... They were responsible, along with Jan & Dean for changing America from 'whatever that was they were calling rock-n-roll'...to 'cool'...they were the coolest thing that could've been at that time...and it's stood the test of time...although not as prolific as the Beatles, but nearly as tragic and Again, Jan & Dean deserve another mention here to, as they really were responsible for that new surfer sound...The irony of 'Dead man's curve' can't be ignored...and then you probably know the rest of the story...a true loss for us all...the 60's ushered in change...at tremendous costs....just see the memorial if you need a reminder...it was either lies, war or drugs...'cool' only really existed in the heads of those old surfers any longer....At any rate, check this one out...and remember that the blues bros knew it was cool...

thanks...
