A warm and beautiful collection.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Friends / 20/20 (Audio CD)
The Friends album, from 1968, has some lovely country/folk songs,or at least as close to folk music as the Beach Boys would get. Listen to songs such as Friends, or Wake the world, and that should give a good idea of what to expect.
20/20, from 1969 has two songs which were intended for Smile: Our Prayer, and Cabinessence. Two stand-out tracks here are Do It Again, and I Can Hear Music, sung by Carl. Lovely.
These two albums also bring to the fore the gorgeous,rich voice of Dennis Wilson,particularly on the tracks Little Bird, Be Still, and the lovely Be With Me.Dennis Wilson tended to be overshadowed by Brian and Carl,but these songs show just how accomplished he was. There are rare photos, and extensive liner notes here too.
