A new studio album from legendary writer, producer, arranger and performer Brian Wilson.
A musical love letter from Southern California, 'That Lucky Old Sun' shimmers with sun-dappled choruses and arrangements that swell and swirl as if carried by the Pacific tides. The album is narrated in transitional interludes spoken by Wilson. The narratives, cameos on life and the heartbeat of Los Angeles, propel the album's musical story.
Last summer, Wilson found himself singing the 1949 classic song, "That Lucky Old Sun," which became the inspiration for a unique approach to what would become his next studio release. He bought Louis Armstrong's version of the track and was inspired to collaborate lyrically with his band mate Scott Bennett, and with Van Dyke Parks, his old 'sidekick'.
It is a measure of the artistic triumph of 'That Lucky Old Sun' that it's such an utter pleasure, an album of sunshine...

There are few other albums this year with as much force, verve and sheer musical imagination as 'That Lucky Old Sun'. -- Uncut, September 2008 issue
Top Customer Reviews
Lucky Old Sun, however, is a great return to form for pop music's greatest composer. First performed at the Royal Festival Hall, the album version is solid from start to finish from the instant classic of "Midnight's another day" to the Beach Boys-like "Morning Beat". The spoken narratives (written by Van Dyke Parks) don't detract from the music and instead complement Brian and Scott Bennetts creation.
This is probably more accessible than "Smile" was as it's a much more coherent piece where Smile was such a leap that nobody has done anything like it since.
Brian's & Beach Boys fans will love this album and it deserves a listen or two from everybody else to.

I love Brian Wilson. This album has some gems and high points but it's very inconsistent. The good tracks are very good though.Published 15 months ago by Clive Culbertson
Rather like out-takes for the Beach Boys reunion album (That's why God made the radio) - and some tracks as good. Overall: very enjoyable music. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Tobias Churton

At the price this was a bargain. OK, Brian Wilson's voice is a little croaky but he writes so well and always has great musicions with fine a production crew. Good to play!Published on 5 Feb. 2013 by pinky
