NOTE: The story of the Beach Boys is the story of an extremely enthusiastic, likeable cadre of brothers, a cousin, and a school chum who made it very big. The raw nature of their early albums quickly gives way to increasingly complex compositions, while lyrically digging deeper into the emotional psyche. Despite the fact that Elliott was one of the Beach Boys most ardent historians, and had contributed to many of their album releases, this event appeared to create a still-irreparable divide between them; but now, like the Phoenix, here these sessions comes again, on a different label, and with notes by acclaimed author Jim Murphy, and containing reportedly every scrap of those first sessions.
Released by The Beach Boys themselves on the independent Omnivore Records label, this double-disc set is a dream for rock historians and fan-boys who have long yearned to hear these baby steps taken by the premiere American band, but will be a minor curiosity for everyone else. For the listener, it's fascinating to hear the band already have everything in place for what set them apart from their peers - the unique blending of Four Freshman harmonies, Chuck Berry guitar licks, and Surf culture intertwined in a way that had never been attempted, and yet meshed Surfin U.S.A - The Beach Boys - Endless Summer (CD) organically.
You can hear the potential, and admire the band's consistency as they do take after take with only slight variations in quality and energy. That being said, after a few listens to take after take of "Surfin'" or "Luau"and I was about ready to pull my ears off. This really is a release aimed at hard-core fans and scholars - the illuminating Surfin U.S.A - The Beach Boys - Endless Summer (CD) by Murphy are invaluable in fleshing out the events of this session, and for those who have been hoping to get a full listen at Surfin U.S.A - The Beach Boys - Endless Summer (CD) Hite and Dorinda Morgan sessions, here they are - casual fans should look elsewhere.
