Al is always good. He has always done pretty well through 70s/80s, and some of his composition (Susie Cincinnati, Lady Lynda, Santa Ana Winds) are often counted as the best song off these albums.

Now, what is your favorite work among the great Alan Jardine's composition as one of the Beach Boys? Look forward to seeing your interesting opinions.

[Thanks to RangeRoverA1 for the idea of this thread.]

I've voted for Susie Cincinnati. As I said on 5 Big Ones thread, it really should have been on Sunflower, then it would've made that great album at least 30% better! Al rocks!

According to AGD's site, he co-wrote the song with Brian and Ron Altbach.

Ahhh I see. I was going off of Wikipedia which has it listed as a Love-Wilson-Altbach composition. I don't have my copy of MIU to check but he might've meant it was produced by Jardine? Or I could be completely wrong LOL

I love it and I hate when people call it "wimpy" along with Bruce's compositions on Sunflower. Probably his best vocal he's ever done in my opinion.

Yep. It's funny - Bruce, least favorite BB, sings my favorite BBs ever song.
Some people actually prefer "Tears In The Morning" over AMW. The mind boggles. Roll Eyes

I voted All This Is That, but Island Girl is very underrated, in my opinion.

Yes, "All This Is That". A standout track on C&TP--ST and proof that the Boys could come up with a classic sans Brian if they really tried...

Can any of you name favorite Al song he's main songwriter? It's weird to read about BBs, "All This Is That" etc. This is Al thread, let's give him credit, shall we?

"It's about time".

I also love "All this is that" but it doesn't need my vote, I'm sure it will win anyway.

I sure can. Eternal Ballad (Japanese bonus track on 2012 Reissue of A Postcard From California). That would be my favorite song Al Jardine composed completely solo. As for the options given at the top of this thread All This Is That wins hands down.

Although I prefer It's About Time, as far as I know that's mainly a Dennis song. So I voted for Lady Lynda instead

Thank you. It's jolly good indeed. As to "All This Is That" winning - this is not contest thread. People vote songs, that's it.

Thank you, Rei. You understood what I said. Now, the other folks?

Being as thick as two short planks, I'll stick with the winner: "All This Is That". Smokin

It isn't written just by Al. Don't you like Al-written songs from the list?

I really like "Looking At Tomorrow" but that doesn't count either (Gary Winfrey). Damn. Which one would you suggest I like?
