Chuck is firing on all cylinders!  Can't wait to hear the full album.  Does this mean Bear Family will have to
update and reissue they're fabulous Chuck Box Set?

Well, I don't know. With this new song, the fire is gone after 1:20 and then it's just lame and the whole production has a strange non-rocking sound. "Big boys" was better imo. Let's see what the rest will be like

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

My local independent radio station, KRCL, played Big Boys this morning. It was awesome!

The proper swan song to a legend!

And production aside, I’d so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591

It's a good album, although short by 2017 standards - 35 minutes. Chuck is in good voice, the lyrics are as entertaining/amusing as always, and I don't know if he is doing all the guitar work on the record - there are credits for others, but no telling who does what solo; if it is others, they are channeling Chuck very nicely. Not straight ahead rock all the way through, about half the album is slower songs, which IMO befits a man about to turn 90.
I wonder if this album might encourage Little Richard to bless us one more time?

I still haven't listened to the album, although my brother owns it (in fact, I gave it to him as a birthday present)  Shocked

Well, Little Richard officially retired. I don't think he's recording. Shortly before he died, George Jones planned to record one last album and said that Little Richard wrote a song for him. Unfortunately, I don't think George ever got around to record it (or anything for that album)

Yes, Richard retired. Last year, he was on a religious channel, 3ABN, sans wig, makeup, etc, denouncing rock and roll (again). He did say something about recording a gospel song with Tom Jones, but who knows if that will ever happen.

Interestingly, I thought Richard was retiring 'cause he was sick and recent appearances seemed to signal that he was very weak. That said, on the TV show you mention he seemed very clear and not at all as weak as he looked and sounded on stage. I was pleasantly surprised by his appearance. As a theologian myself, I can't say I agree with all of his views, but that's another discussion.


Yesterday I had the chance to listen to a couple of more tracks from "Chuck". I liked what I heard. It seems on the songs I've herad that most of the guitar works was between Chuck and his son (you can hear a difference in style). And also it was nice to see/hear Chuck sing a Tony Joe White song ("3/4 time"). I have to make sure that I listen to the rest of the album soon.
