There are many of us who believe the Beach Boys hit an all-time high with "Pet Sounds" and testimony is in the release finally of the lost album retitled "Smiley Smile" but there are some of us that believe they finished their careers and don't come back with "WIld Honey." In truth, the seventies was interesting for the Beach Boys, but the classic "Lady Lynda" single from the mid 70s is missing here.....why? I ask. This one song brought the warmth back, the group back into the charts, and those old classics were re-released once more. The tragedy is that with the finish of The Beatles in 1970, groups like the Beach Boys seemingly finished in most public's minds as well. All capitol compilations to date seemed to end with "Cottonfields" or "Breakaway" which confirmed the compilers were frightened to go further. "Holland" is superb and there's been others. Please bring back "Lady Lynda" and lets all celebrate!
