Hey y'all!

Jason Brewer and I are starting a Beach Boys podcast in conjunction with our tribute band SAIL ON. Been preparing for this for many years now and I'm super excited to finally get this rolling!

In the first episode we discuss what brought us this far down the Beach Boys rabbit hole, list our top ten albums, and lay out what we hope to accomplish with the show.
Thanks for listening!  Hope you guys can help us grow into something special.

Listening to Ep 1 now and loving it. Nice job, boys!

Part of your opening musical sequence is ringing a bell. Is it from Will C.'s Adieu or Die?

EDIT: Hah! Just got to the end where you mention using Will C.'s stuff.

Seems like you expected that your high praise of Love You would spark some debate, and I'm game. I'm always looking for somebody to convince me that Love You is a decent record. Heck, that it's even worth a second listen (I've sat thru it at least a dozen times over the years trying to keep an open mind). You made an effort in this episode, but fell short. Specifically, what doesn't square with me is that most people who love that album start by calling it "genius," then follow that claim with stories about circumstances and context and where the Boys "were at the time."

I understand how context can lend to a fan's appreciation of a song or album. That I get, but context does not good music make.

What I don't get-- and what I hope you will explain in later episodes-- is how exactly the album is genius. I find nothing about the album genius. Musically, instrumentally, lyrically.  Nothing. Please help me out here!
 
All that said, I really like the informal format and thoughtful discussion. I can't wait until the next episode drops!

To be honest, I don't consider the album "genius" nor do I think it is one of the best Beach Boys albums.  It's simply one of my personal favorites.  The emotion and story behind the songs is what makes it so important to me.  I know it's not for everyone!  I didn't care for it for many years.

I just listened this morning! Great stuff! Iím looking forward to more! I made a comment under the fake name Rob Hendrick. But my real name is Magic Transistor Radio. No wait!.... my reality is a bit skewed!

I listened as well, nice job! It's obvious that you guys are knowledgeable fans and being musicians yourselves I think will add another layer to the discussion. It also probably enhances your level of appreciation for the group, for sure. Wyatt's #10 pick had me thinking about all the good/great music that didn't make it on either of your lists! You could have an episode (or two or three) just discussing those overlooked moments...


... New episodes every Monday! 

Thanks for the heads up.

I loooooved listening to this.   I agreed with so many of the things you said, too, from the "All Beach Boys all the time" sentiment to your views on many of the records.  I too would rank In Concert among my favorites.  In fact, it would be my desert island BB disc if I had to pick.  It just has everything I need on it, from the amazing 70s stuff to cool versions of the early hits to GV and Caroline, No.

Also, so pleased to hear someone mention Our Car Club.  One of my favorites, which doesn't get enough love in my view.  

I really really look forward to more of the podcasts.  

By the way, I really like what I've heard of the Explorers Club, but have had difficulty finding your records even in some of the best record stores.  Love the cover of Freedom Wind - am I correct in thinking it's an homage to All Summer Long?

Well done.

However, 'How She Boogalooed It' is awesome.

Thanks!

And yes, the first EC album cover is inspired by All Sunmer Long!  Our newest record is an homage to Friends!

Freedom Wind blows my mind. In fact, you might say it's one of my favorite Beach Boys albums.
