Product Description

Despite less than a year later and solely on the strength of their live shows, the Beach Boys garnered Band of the Year award in Rolling Stone magazine, 1973's In Concert is, unaccountably, rarely afforded much in the way of retrospective applause. This is probably due to the all-too-conspicuous absenteeism of madcap mentor/cult figurehead Brian Wilson at the time of the recording and, of course, because Pet Sounds, not unduly, remains the media's first choice for critical column filler. But as live albums go, this is a bona-fide classic of the genre from a rock band (yes, that's right--take a listen to the rubber-burning joyride through "Fun Fun Fun" or the proto-Charlatans hammond-organ groove of "Sail on Sailor", or the gleeful folk-rock stomp through "Sloop John B") at the peak of their performing powers. The utterly matchless vocal serenity of Carl Wilson alone makes this the kind of disc that desert islands were invented for. --Kevin Maidment

I know every inch of this album, which is one of the great lost classics of all time. It is so good to see it on sale at last.
The Beach Boys were steadily and unspectacularly marching back to a second commercial peak at the time of this album, proving they could cut it as a "serious" rock band as well as a good time party band. And when this album came out, the news was good. They had found a new and unlikely niche: a good live band (ironic considering their studio shenanigans the previous decade).
Minus Brian Wilson, the band in an unexpected way did not sound dated, or formulaic, but actually cooked - with two new "official" members Ricky Fataar and Blondie Chaplin giving them an extra edge. Some of the live stuff you'll know very well.. Fun fun fun, Darlin' and the like. But the real gems are unexpected..
A truly beautiful sweet version of Caroline No; an achingly tender Don't Worry baby; an intriguing and spacey Leaving this Town, and my absolute favourite - Surfer Girl (plus Mike Love intro).
i remember way back when we used to put the last side of the then double album on at parties and everyone used to go ape..
Unusually for live albums at the time, there's also a real sense of atmosphere especially in the extended last songs.. they still had a teen audience mixed in with the far more knowing hippies.
Only bummer? Good vibrations does not sound good as a live song. No.never. No way.
But hear how this historic band, the aristocrats of the west coast, actually put their arms to the wheel, got it down and dirty and grafted out killer performances with a new, far more knowing attitude than the gigs of the 60's. Enjoy this! They ended up at the crest of this "live" wave being Rolling Stone's live act of the year. Wierd. And all without Brian.

I still have the LP version of this CD, which I purchased in the early seventies. Why has Brother Records kept this in the vaults? Not an audiophile's dream recording, however, the music shines through. The best recorded tracks are "Marcella" with a pounding bass line, and "Darling". Listen to the vocals and you hear real harmonies yielding real music that brings feelings of joy ("Fun, Fun, Fun)and sadness ("Caroline No") at one time. I am going out to purchase Holland and the other Beach Boy releases that Brother Records (Capitol) have been hiding under a rock ....

Fundamentally, the Beach Boys were/are a studio band. Live, they have never really cut it, until I heard this album.

A little background: after the scrapping of Smile, Carl and Dennis Wilson took over the leadership of the band from Brian. Mike Love was utilised as a great front man, but the creative axis tilted towards Carl and Dennis. They were the two forces making music that could be readily described as progressive Americana: they were both influenced by Brian, who maintained a sporadic presence in the studio, but created something great of their own, i.e. I Can Music, Forever, Only With You, Sail On Sailor, The Trader, Long Promised Road. This was no longer fun in the sun music, but ecologically aware adult music.

The Beach Boys In Concert is the zenith of the Carl/Dennis leadership, prior to Mike Love's toxic quick buck syndrome, post Endless Summer, and something, barring solo releases, that has blighted the Beach Boys since 1976. The album is a mixture of both post-smile progressive Americana and the early hits; it is endemic of a band that believe they have a future. Heroes & Villains marvellously co-exists with Fun, Fun, Fun, and comes out the clear winner. Leaving This Town, We Got Love, Trader, and Sail On Sailor, are just as relevant, just as good as Sloop John B, Wouldn't It Be Nice, and Good Vibrations. The hits exists with the hipper material, something that wasn't allowed to flourish post 1976.

Sacrosanct material, four tracks from that most studio of albums, Pet Sounds, are played on the stage in beautifully, beguiling new arrangements, which accentuate Brian's arrangements. This is, ultimately, the Beach Boys without formulaic hits, and the sadness of the album is that they could have, should have, done so much better, so much greater than being a hit machine, churning out pre 1966 material.

I own 20 or so of the Beach Boys albums, but this CD has to be one of my most listened to. A terrific set list (plenty of representation for post-Pet Sounds work as well)combines with a more adult, earthier sound to make a brilliant listening experience. The ballads (surfer girl, don't worry baby and Caroline No) are even sweeter than their recorded counterparts and many of the songs pack far more energy than the studio version - Darlin' has always been one of my favourite songs, but it rocks along at such a pace I clap along at every listening. Truly essential.
