THE BEACH BOYS Box Set ‘Thirty Years – Good Vibrations’.

(…)This box contains the heart and soul of the Beach Boys music. The hits are here along with some cool songs that didn’t come out as singles…some not even as records at all. We’ve even included some of the Smile sessions so that you see that as well as straight ahead stuff, we also have a crazy side to us. You’ll also hear us live and in concert with all the flaws. No matter which side you prefer, just remember when you listen to this music, you’re hearing us at our best. To me, the best part of the whole Beach Boys experience, was the excitement that the boys and I whipped up together. It’s always been infectious, and I’m sure you’ll catch it too as you listen.
So, from me and the guys…my brothers Dennis and Carl, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks…and all the musicians who helped make this magic music…enjoy!
Sincerely, Brian Wilson, March, 1993”

‘Ghetto Child’ is a good example of how not to compile an artist. BUT: the music’s good! “ (…)Now, having aired all those complaints, the music is very good. These are fiery, committed performances in which the songs and arrangements often veer as much toward soul as toward blues. That’s something that works to Copeland’s advantage, both because he was versatile enough to combine styles well, and because it made him stand out from legions of other journeymen bluesmen. The 1960-71 material is particularly fine for its raw and unusual qualities. 1971’s “Ghetto Child,” for instance, has a searing wobbly organ that sounds like it was lifted from a warped Animals record, and its flip side, “Soul Power,” has respectable funk rock influences. The 1963-64 cuts benefit from some Bobby  Blue Bland-quality horn parts, and “May the Best Man Win” has some great unexpected descending chord changes, set to a Latinesque beat” (…) Quoted From / All Rights Reserved: Richard Unterberger at


“The Teenage Opera – one of the legendary long lost projects of the sixties – comes to life for the first time. RPM is presenting the soundtrack for The Teenage Opera – in as near a form to the original concept as possible – as it would have been had EMI not pulled the plug back in 1968. Producer Mark Wirtz began work on The Teenage Opera story idea in 1966 when contracted to EMI, and teamed up with a group of musicians including Steve Howe and Keith West plus engineer Geoff Emerick. The story of The Teenage Opera was to include sketches of different characters who inhabited a fantasy village, which in turn was part of a story being told by a young man to a young woman. Two singles were released as Excerpts from the Teenage Opera – ‘Grocer Jack’ and ‘Sam’, both here in stereo and featuring Keith West’s vocals (the former also including ‘Theme From A Teenage Opera’ on the B-side). Whilst ‘Grocer Jack’ became a huge UK & European hit, ‘Sam’ failed to emulate it and after EMI saw how much money the two singles had swallowed up they lost interest, patience or whatever, and refused to finance The Teenage Opera project. Undeterred, Mark Wirtz continued to use his musical ideas and a number of Teenage Opera characters and themes appeared over the years on a variety of singles by different bands or as solo releases” (…).

 “Fresh off his induction into the Blues Hall of Fame, veteran guitarist rolls further on down the road. A stalwart of British blues scene for five decades, it’s only recently that Norman Beaker started to collect his accolades, although the growing recognition didn’t impinge on the axeman’s sense of self-importance, and this album is all about having fun rather than celebrating it. Which is why, perhaps, the artist’s latter-day trio had been expanded to a fuller band: because ensemble shenanigans are the best” (…) . Quoted From / All Rights Reserved:
