Welcome back, one and all, to the first thread of the Beach Boys Solo Survivor.

The Solo Survivors are going to tackle the main solo albums of members of the Beach Boys. This will not include solo albums released prior to membership in the Beach Boys. This will also not include works done by members who were participating in different groups (ie David Marks in The Moon or The Marksmen) nor will it include "Best Of" albums or rehash albums (ie Summertime Cruisin' by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston will not be included. This also means we will not be including Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE or I Just Wasn't Made For These Times.) Lastly, we will not be including EP's or Unreleased Albums.

Some of the Solo Survivor albums may be hard to come across. Smilers are encouraged to locate legal copies of the solo albums. I expect these rounds to go quicker with less voting than normal. No big deal.

So without further ado...

Quote
Carl Wilson is the self-titled debut album of The Beach Boys band member, Carl Wilson. The youngest of the three Wilson brothers in the band, Carl Wilson was reportedly at this time unhappy with the progress being made by The Beach Boys creatively. So Carl, just as his brother Dennis had a few years earlier, signed a contract with James William Guercio's CBS-distributed Caribou Records. The album was released on March 27, 1981 and peaked at number 185 on the Billboard 200. Of the eight tracks on the album, seven of them are written by Carl Wilson and Myrna Smith, who was the wife of Carl's then manager Jerry Schilling, with track six being written by Carl, Myrna and Michael Sun.

Please can we include Blondie's solo albums? Pretty please? An excuse to let them be heard by a wider audience that needs to hear this great music. Pretty pretty please?

If you can provide links where we might heat them, why not?

I agree. I think it was wrong to skip a solo album which fits all the criteria. Poor Blondie   Sad

Nobody would vote because hardly any of us have ever seen it. Let alone heard it.

Still multiple new CD copies on Amazon UK at fair prices and the whole album available for digital download. Admittedly tough to come across on YouTube. Heartily recommended for any fan, especially of the rocker CATP tracks. Seems shame to consign one of the very first solo albums by a Beach Boy to the remaindered bin… is Blondie the new lost Beach Boy?  Shocked
