The Beach Boys: Surfin' Safari

Album Notes

Beach Boys: Carl Wilson, David Marks (vocals, guitar), Brian Wilson (vocals, keyboards, bass); Dennis Wilson (vocals, keyboards, drums); Mike Love (vocals).

SURFIN' SURFARI is the Beach Boys' first album, and while it's no MEET THE BEATLES, one recognizes the beginnings of that special California-bred sound: a focus on perfect group harmony backed by streamlined, understated surf music. Add to the mix the pervasive celebration of school's-out teenage hedonism and voila! Though composer Brian Wilson's powerful nostalgic lyricism hadn't surfaced yet, the earliest hits like near-primitive "Surfin" and the slicker "Surfari" mark a bright new chapter in American music.
