Surfin' Safari is the Beach Boys first album, but it perfectly encapsulates the image of California (at least as perceived by this reviewer). The rudimentary nature of the vocal harmonies complements the subject matter of the songs: fun, girls, cars, surf, and cuckoos. The noteworthy tracks are: Little Miss America (sung by drummer Dennis Wilson), Surfin' Safari, a cover of Summertime Blues, and the solid "Country Fair". Overall Surfin' Safari is lovely album for someone looking to get acquainted with the Boys.
This package also includes their second LP "Surfin U.S.A." and 3 bonus tracks. In the former I only consider Lana, Farmer's Daughter, and Surfin' U.S.A. as deserving -in the case of the former two- praise, or -in the case of the latter: mention.
Concluding, don't shun away from purchasing these two-albums package, considering that you are paying for one good album, and getting another 20 songs in that price.
