Title: New podcast about Beach Boys cover recordings
Post by: Mark Dillon on September 09, 2018, 02:56:25 PM
The Beach Boys' catalog contains at least 90 cover versions, some of which are classics, such as "Sloop John B," "I Can Hear Music," and "Barbara Ann," and others, such as "Wipeout" with the Fat Boys, that, um, are not. Phil Miglioratti of the Pray for Surf blog and I engaged in a lively discussion about the best, worst, and weirdest covers the group has ever recorded. Click on the link to hear: https://prayforsurfblog.blogspot.com/. Look forward to hearing your thoughts and which are your faves. I'll leak a couple of my picks: Most underwhelming cover: "Battle Hymn of the Republic." Most unexpected: "Jumpin' Jack Flash."
