This is such a great song from a wonderful album, Sunflower. I’ve always loved songs where multiple members of the group traded lead vocals, and this one included a lead by all members except maybe Dennis. This rendition is faithful to the original in form, but the arrangement is stunning. I loved the a capella break for the bridge, what a beautiful sound. The footage of Dennis and Carl was moving, but the surprise emotional moment for me was my reaction to seeing Jeffrey Foskett smiling and playing. He has been a huge part of the Beach Boys for nearly 4 decades, and recently lost his singing voice to cancer (what a loss to us fans as well). I got a bit choked up with joy seeing him playing, I’m so happy he was involved! It’s hard to speak of involvement without thinking the obvious. I was hoping to see at least a snippet of Brian, and even Blondie & Ricky. Maybe the Spring ESQ has the lowdown on why our boy was not involved. Thanks David, as I always say, It’s a great time to be a fan!

What a great issue. I am 46 and fell in love with the Beach Boys sound as a kid and was lucky enough that my first concert was the Boys supporting their 1985 self-titled album. And I caught them again on their 50th tour. As we all get older, and have seen members pass, I often wonder how much longer I’ll be able to catch them. The Add Some Music project line up gives us a peak at where perhaps the future is headed. There’s lots of gas in the tank left, but one day I wonder if these younger Beach Boys family members will become a legacy act and carry the good vibrations to the future. When it comes to the Beach Boys, the sun never sets. Thanks so much for Keepin’ the Summer Alive with every issue. No other band has a better fan resource. Congrats!

I think this is a wonderful addition to all the “Covid Remote Videos” that are out there. Besides the fact that this is one of my favorite songs, it has been renewed with three generations of Beach Boys’ family! I can’t wait for the full album. I got mine pre-ordered!
