4.0 out of 5 stars Rereleases for the collector, 7 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Surfer Girl (Mono & Stereo) (Audio CD)
The mono & stereo releases of all their sixties albums are nice for the collector.

Although mono and stereo versions of "Surfer Girl" were released in the sixties, the mono version of "Surfer Girl" was previously unreleased on CD. The stereo version is in my opinion better then the mono version. Brian Wilson was still learning (but rapidly growing) as a producer. The mono version reveals more the uneveness in power in the song-recording.

When you are not a collector I advise you to buy the twofers (two different albums on one CD). The twofers have a booklet, bonus tracks, the sound quality is the same and they are cheaper.

5.0 out of 5 stars KEEP SURFING, 10 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Surfer Girl (Mono & Stereo) (Audio CD)
Surfer Girls features original member David Marks and is, as the title suggests, a bona fide surf-themed album.

It boasts a number of classics plus some superb songs that never turn up on 'best of' packages.

The album has that classic early Sixties feel and is a joy to listen to (whether in mono or stereo).

5.0 out of 5 stars A big musical step forward., 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Surfer Girl (Mono & Stereo) (Audio CD)
Although there are only 6 months between the recording of this, the Beach Boys 3rd album, and the previous Surfin USA album, musically it shows a large step forward. On this album Brian Wilson produced and arranged a much more lush sound and songs, production was becoming more complex. Alan Jardine makes a welcome return to the band(having departed in early 1962) which means that the six man original line up which started out in 1961 are together again and for the first time as Capitol recording artists. The line up consisted of Jardine, David Marks, Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Dennis and Carl Wilson. Surfer Girl, Little Deuce Coupe and eventually In My Room were all big hits. Brian Wilson begins to introduce even more instruments to the tracks beyond the regular drums, guitars and piano. Keyboards play a much larger part on this album and stringed instruments such as harp and violin are introduced along with saxophones. This is a truly wonderful album and another true classic.
