I give it a solid 4.
I prefer their performance of this on their Concert album.

Today's song is Let's Go Tripping.

You need to change the poll, Mr Polly Poller. Grin

I'm not that familiar with the Concert version----I must check it out. Thanks, Elizabeth.

Well, the two Dick Dale covers were obvious choices to fill out the album. But taken all together, the "sea of instrumentals" is very effective, like a soundtrack for surfing.

Yep. It's faster, catchier, cooler. Carl showed who's the boss. But not in Surfin' USA track. 2.

I've just been listening to the live version. It does sound better. Thanks, folks.

Four Seasons, you better believe it! The chords of the words "finders keepers loser weepers" have the exact "lie" of their counterpart in "Big Girls Don't Cry"----a masterstroke. And Mike's bass lines are a fair imitation of Nick Massi.

A great closer to the album... 5.

I was the 4 on "Finders Keepers"

Seeing this poll over here is like reliving my recent life.

That is what it is like being a Beach Boys fan, right?

Not sure if my ratings will be the same.  The love for
some of these tracks changes from week to week!

It's all over the place musically and rhythmically. Along with a nod to the Four Seasons to boot.
Give it a 4.

Yes, it must be odd. I've unbookmarked PSF (not out of malice, I hasten to add) so my life is less complicated than yours, Will. LOL

I'm glad "Finders Keepers" got 3 "1"s. Smiley Well done.

Surfin' USA album is 4. It's really cool, I'd like to like some of these instras but it's cool as is. The title track here is definitely thousand times better than the t/t in SS.

Everything on SUSA has something to recommend it. Even the slightly underwhelming "Noble Surfer" has a cool solo (on celeste!). And there's a sea of instrumentals to lie back in and soak up. It's a big step forward on all fronts from Surfin' Safari. (Although the first truly great BB album was still to come.)

5.

It just struck me that Brian's spoken bit in "Lonely Sea" is not the only talking on the album----it closes with a spot of mumbling from Mike.

There's no Baker's Day holiday here. They were trying to do a novelty dance song based on the children's nursery rhyme, "Pattycake, pattycake, baker's man".
I'm no fan of the novelty song genre, but this isn't any worse than most of them.

I give it a 2. Would give it a three but dock it one for the "slap her in the face" lyric.
