2.0 out of 5 stars Not a complete soundtrack!, 10 Nov 2008
A little bit disappointed with this CD really. It should say "Selected Music" frrom the motion picture on the cover as it is not complete. "Free Falling" by Tom Petty isn't on, which means one of most memorable songs / clips from the film is not accounted for. Poor...

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor and very disappointing, 15 Jan 2007
Now before people jump to conclusions, yes I am a fan of the Chris Moyles show which I listen to every morning. However, little did I know that I would be so disappointed with this book that I would take it back half way through reading it. Mr Moyles had been plugging this book weeks and the effort that went into writing the 70,000 words in it. Well, I could have written a book like this in a week!It's like a 12 year old's diary with a few swear words splattered across the page.

My advice, wait til you see in the bargain bins in 3/4 months time if you REALLY want it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST for every Beach Boys Fan!, 27 Aug 2004
This review is from: The Beach Boys (Paperback)
At last! A book that accounts possibly every detail about the Beach Boys from the formation of the group to Brian Wilson's triumphant return to touring and the 2004 performances of Smile (the long lost album that was abandonned in 1967), this book is a delight from cover to cover.
Keith Badman shows his love for the Californian group and gives them a book that gives justice to a past that many have overlooked in recent times as the general public do not realise that the Beach Boys were just as, if not more creative in the 1970s as they were in the 1960s.
Highlights of the book include unpublished photos, setlists from many concerts, quotes, news articles, television appearances, session logs and a lot more.
This book is a cross between Brad Elliot's "Surf's Up! The Beach Boys on Record" for its accuracy in record releases and chart positions, and Barry Miles "The Beatles Diary" for its layout in terms of the day-to-day activities of the group with notable dates outlined.
I would recommend this book to all those who would like to know what Brian, Dennis, Carl, Mike, Al and Bruce were doing in certain time periods with regards to performing and recording rather than those who would like to read the book in a non-fictional way.
A fantastic book and a great achievement to Keith Badman!
