I just listen to it and there are some pretty good stuff on it,I know it was produced (or co-produced) with Carl,but did Carl write or co-write any of the songs on it?

I'd have to dig the vinyl out, but I think Carl co-wrote a couple songs on it....also quite a supporting cast, Dennis on drums, Billy Hinsche, Gerry Beckley, Jimmy McCulloch, Chicago horns.

I can totally hear Carl singing lead on some of these songs,and in fact some of this is better then his 2 solo albums,with some really cool horn and string arrangments.

it's a shame he didn't put this type of production in his own solo stuff,there's some neat stuff in this,including songs that kind of remind me of songs off of POB..

Great song and this is a better record than his solo albums.

I love it. Bit of a minor forgotten BBs related gem. Easy-going, well-produced, pop, not syrupy, perfect for a sunny afternoon.

In 2000 I had the opportunity to talk to Ricci briefly about Beached and he said he hoped to re-release it but with a new mix in which Carl's backing vocals were brought up in the mix. He mentioned calling it "Beached 2000".

Too bad that never happened for whatever reason.

I Had A Dream  has some beautiful Van Dyke Parks synthesizer overdub-parts, it's my hi-lite of the album.
Some songs seem rather.......... empty.
Still I would love to hear the rumored quad-mix !   3D
