Not strictly. It's Mike Love, Bruce Johnston and David Marks of the Beach Boys saluting NASCAR. A strange release, entirely dreadful but strangely listenable if you're in the right sort of mood.

I don't know what's dreadful about it. It's a fun little early 60s style song. I prefer PS and post PS Beach Boys, but even so, this is an enjoyable if throwaway rock and roll song.

It's very listenable and as rewarding an experience as any 'recent' Beach Boys product.  It does rock, which is more than can be said for the current album.

Every time I think someone has made the most retarded statement ever, someone steps up to the plate and knocks it out of the ball park.

Nah I was talking about the record as a whole. Little GTO is probably the highlight and as someone else stated that's only cos it's a song they'd never recorded before and as you say it is a fun song.

Yes, but the whole record is just a terrible, amateurish, lifeless, plastic sounding piece of garbage. A typical Baker-production so to speak

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

PRO SHOT BEACH BOYS CONCERTS - LIST


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.

It's pretty obvious WHAT kind of fan considers the Nascar offering to be entirely dreadful.  3D

strange times on Smiley Smile when people believe this piece of crap is art that needs to be listened to.

And production aside, Id 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

If anything it shows just how great Mike and Brian's voices were back in the day. Like a lot of BB soundalike songs from that time the lead sounds really dated and the falsetto never seams to soar in quite the same way Brian's did. If you listen to Mike's leads on stuff like I Get Around it still sounds really fresh and vibrant even today.

I am not a Mike Love bigot, like so many here, but in all honesty, to me, his voice sounds congested and weak. He gets there, but I wouldn't call it vibrant.

Sorry to have upset you delicate sensibilities, I'm just sick of idiotic statements on this board.
