Oops, I listed the wrong song title. Don't know why I did that. Thanks for correcting me. I meant to type Devoted To You, not YGTHYLA. I don't where my head is today  Tongue

Still however....Devoted To You is probably the best part of Party, in my opinion. Four...

Well five, obviously. A great doo wop song the Boys are really having fun with. :=)

To complete the circle: Dante & the Evergreens' cover was almost as successful as The Hollywood Argyles' original. "Dante" (Donald Drowty) later formed Dante and His Friends who first recorded "Little Girl (You're My Miss America)"...

Alley Oop

FOUR

Love the way Mike pronounces the word "dinosaur" (dino-saw-wah). And his "whoaaa.....er, grizzly bear" always cracks me up. Great fun doo-wop stuff, very catchy. And it's always fun to hear the BBs having a good time and goofing off.

This early Crystals song (a Spector co-write) is probably my favourite track on the album. Great to hear Brian in his mid-range. What a voice!

IGA/LDC

THREE

It's a very funny track, and I love hearing the band acting silly and having a good time. I can't give it more than a 3. It's never once been added to any of my BB mixes/playlists. Maybe someday I'll make a goofball BB playlist and I'll include this medley.

This is where my patience snaps and I finally hand out a low score. In fact, this is the point when I turn off the album! Everything from now on is way below par (in my opinion). I love the 45 of "Barbara Ann", adore it in fact, but I can't abide the album version which seems to go on for ever (yes, thank you, Dean *sigh*)...

TTTAA-C

TWO

Al finally gets his chance to shine on the Party album. And even though I'm a big fan of Al, I'm just not too crazy about this one. I guess I'm not into Dylan, unless if the Byrds or Hendrix are covering him.  The best part of the song, for me anyway, is when Al makes his voice get raspy in parts ("....and admit that waters....", "cuz the loser now will be later win...."). But the song doesn't move me, and it's sorta weird hearing Al trying to sound like Dylan. And unfortunately all I can think of when I hear the Beach Boys doing this song is Mike Love mocking Dylan on the bizarre Endless Bummer cd I bought some years back ("...I never thought I'd get to cut a record before, but I got something to say for Al, and I also got something to say for Carl, and I got something to say for Denny, and I got something to say for Brian, and I hope it says it for the rest of the group. Why do YOU....Smell like a city ZOO....Why does your teeth look so GREEEEEEN.")

2Watamushi - add "5" to TTTAAC. It's the best track with Al's great lead! 3D He really shines there (as usual).

1 to "Barbara Ann" - the last long sing-song "Baaaa-ba-raaaaaan. You gotta rock it" then banal guitar descending outing's really godawful. I like the live 80s BA.

Barbara Ann

THREE

My favorite version of Barbara Ann is the Live At Knebworth version. I'd give that version a 5 just because it rocks hard and it just plain out feels great. But the Party and the 45 version sounds clunky. I'm not saying it sucks, it's alright. I get bored with it sometimes. Maybe I prefer it with electric guitars and pounding drums.
