5.0 out of 5 stars Brian Wilson's Pre-'Pet Sounds' Genius
After 'Pet Sounds' I would say that these two albums are the best of the Beach Boys output. Much on both hints at what was to come on 'Pet Sounds' with, in my opinion, some of the most beautiful of all Beach Boys tunes on show.
Aside from the seven top 40 hits here, there are the wonderful 'Please Let Me Wonder', 'Let Him Run Wild' and 'In the Back of My Mind'. The...

3.0 out of 5 stars Beach Sounds to Pet Sounds
A nice selection of early 'Boys beach and surf harmonic joy. Cars, girls and bein' bugged at your old man....creeping up on you too are a few ditties which foretell of the low-key, churchy tones of one Pet Sounds. Brian's left the surfboard on the rack and he's off to play in a sand-box.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Wonderful., 6 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Today! / Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!) (Audio CD)
I have just finished listening to this (not for the first time) I need my dose of the Beach Boys and hardly a day
goes by when I dont have my fix. What a bargain this c/d is, two of my favourite albums on one c/d for this price!!
I would pay 10 times this knowng what is contained, 29 tracks and not a bad one amongst them. Buy, Listen and marvel
at one of the god given talents of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant album, 5 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Today! / Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!) (Audio CD)
One of the best BBs albums, with one of the worst tracks.

Basically two sided in its feel,with many songs leading up to Pet Sounds in their subject matter and feel.

4.0 out of 5 stars More underrated Beach Boys classics, 13 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Today! / Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!) (Audio CD)
The cream of pre-Pet Sounds Beach Boys, these two albums prove that musically, early Beach Boys music was far more advanced than early Beatles music, which in my opinion is a bit overrated (don't get me wrong, I love the Beatles, but their post Rubber Soul stuff is far better than their earlier stuff). Containing some fascinating compositions, especially the wonderful California Girls, this is great pop music. My only complaint is with some of the lyrics, which are mostly cringe inducingly sweet and basic.

5.0 out of 5 stars My fav Two-fer of the set., 17 July 2005
This review is from: Today! / Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!) (Audio CD)
This album from the energetic cover of 'Do you Wanna Dance' to the more know 'Calafornia Girls' is amazing. Listening to the well known harmonies send your mind into overdrive. Many of these songs will live on forever.
