5.0 out of 5 stars A very strong collection of their hits, 31 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Sounds Of Summer - The Very Be (Audio CD)
So many of their songs are well known, and not just to those who were raised on this music, but to people of all ages. Part of the reason may be that surf music is inextricably linked with the sixties - you won't find any modern equivalent.
On this American compilation, you get the classic songs they wrote themselves - California girls, Fun fun fun, Good vibrations, Little deuce coupe, Help me Rhonda, God only knows, Darlin', I get around and Wouldn't it be nice to name just a few - together with songs that they covered in their own unique way - Do you wanna dance and Sloop John B.
There have been plenty of compilations of their music down the years and will be many more. Given the number of classic songs they recorded, picking just thirty inevitably means that some great songs get left out. A 30 track compilation released in the UK in 2003 contained 24 of the 30 tracks available here – the other six tracks being Little Honda, Then I kissed her, Caroline no, Break away, Cotton fields and Lady Lynda, instead of Shut down, Be true to your school, In your room, Getcha back, Come go with me and Good timing. Clearly, there isn't a lot to choose between the two, so I recommend that you just buy your local version.
