The Beach Boys: Made In California (6-CD) LP-sized Digi-Book Limited Edition

(2013/CAPITOL) 174 tracks, 1962-2012
-
The set comes in the look of a high school yearbook and covers the entire career of the Beach Boys. Besides the classics, it also contains over 60 previously unreleased songs, demos, alternative mixes and live recordings. 

The Beach Boys have opened their archive and put together a 6-CD collection that covers their entire career. It is called "Made In California" and will be released on the occasion of the 50th band anniversary at Capitol / UMG. It contains more than seven and a half hours of music with over 60 previously unreleased tracks. The Deluxe Set comes as a hardcover book in the look of a high school yearbook, with personal memories of the band members, replicas of legendary artworks and memorabilia, archive photos and with handwritten "yearbook entries" of the Beach Boys Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks. 

"Made In California" was produced by the Beach Boys and Grammy-winning Team Mark Linett, Alan Boyd and Dennis Wolf for'The SMiLE Sessions' and maps their 50-year band history from the earliest demos to the latest recordings in chronological order. With mega hits and rare jewels, many previously unreleased songs, home demos, alternative versions and mixes as well as concert, TV and radio appearances, the set shows the versatility and depth of its catalogue and illustrates the unique and eventful band history, a story from the American West Coast. From "Surfin' Safari" to "God Only Knows", "Wouldn't It Be Nice" and "Good Vibrations" to "Kokomo", the material is unmatched in American pop music. 

The set includes an essay from Brian Wilson's high school days, 1959, entitled "My Philosophy". The original handwritten document is currently on display at the one-year Beach Boys exhibition at the Grammy Museum and has been reproduced for the set. In this essay Wilson expresses his desire for a fulfilled life. He writes: "I don't want to be satisfied with an average life, but want to make a name for myself with my work. I hope that's the music." 

"What this boxing set captured was the development of a dream that began with singing Everly Brothers songs together with the family gathered around the piano and finally produced vocal harmonies that the fans carry in their hearts for a lifetime," Mike Love explains. "When I see these photos and rediscover songs, it reminds me how much I love Brian, Dennis, Carl, Bruce, Al and David. It really hits me that our stories still inspire and encourage new generations to just pick out a wave and ride it as long as possible." 

Among the previously unreleased and long lost recordings on "Made In California" are "Goin' To The Beach", "California Feelin'", "Soul Searchin'", "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" and "You're Still A Mystery". In addition, 17 live recordings will be released here for the very first time, including "Runaway" (1965), "Friends" and "Little Bird" (1968), "Wild Honey" (1972), "It's About Time" (1973), "Wonderful" and "Vegetables" from the legendary 1993 acoustic tour, and a version of "Sail On, Sailor" from 1995, with the soulful singing of the late Carl Wilson. Carl and Dennis Wilson's unique talent is sorely missed and comes to the fore on several of the previously unreleased recordings: Dennis, for example. (Wouldn't It Be Nice To) Live Again", "Barnyard Blues" and "My Love Lives On", and Carl's lead vocals on "Da Doo Ron Ron Ron" and "Soul Searchin'", as well as the joint lead vocals of Carl, Bruce and Brian on "California Feelin'". 

From The Vaults' is a very special CD within the set, because the rarities on it were selected by the band and the producers especially for longtime Beach Boys fans. Highlights include a cappella mixes of particularly great vocal recordings for songs like "This Whole World" and "Slip On Through", alternative versions of "Don't Worry Baby" and other classics, session highlights and instrumentals, as well as live BBC recordings of "Wendy", "When I Grow Up (To Be A Man)" and "Hushabye" from 1964. 

The Beach Boys are one of the most legendary bands in pop music history and the first pop band in America to break the 50-year mark. Founded in Hawthorne, California in 1961, the band originally consisted of the three teenage brothers Brian, Carl and Dennis, their cousin Mike Love and schoolmate Al Jardine. In 1962, when the first hits appeared on Capitol Records, neighbor David Mark joined the band and retired at the end of 1963. In 1965, when Brian Wilson retired from touring to concentrate on composing and producing for the band, Bruce Johnston joined them. 

In 2012, the Beach Boys made headlines worldwide when Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks got together again for a new studio album That's Why God Made The Radio and a 50-year anniversary tour. It was the first time in 20 years that Wilson was back in a big action. 

That's Why God Made The Radio was released last June. It was the band's 29th studio album (including the 2011 SMiLE sessions) and the first in several decades on which all of the original members were still alive. Produced by Brian Wilson and Executive Producer Mike Love, the album entered the Billboard 200 album charts at number 3, the band's highest chart entry.

Beach Boys

Brian Wilson (vocals, piano born June 20, 1942),
Dennis Wilson (drums born 4. 12. 1944, died 28. 12. 1983),
Carl Wilson (vocals, guitar born 21. 12. 1946, died 6. 2. 1998),
Al Jardine (vocals, guitar born 3. 9. 1942) and
Mike Love (born 15. 3. 1941)

 

The Beach Boys, formed in 1961, still extant in 1975 with no prospect of dissolution, were America's only real challenge to the Beatles and certainly the most prominent white American group of the pre-psychedelic era.

The group's formation took place in a middle-class Los Angeles suburb of Hawthorne, and was centred around the teenage Wilson Brothers — Brian (born June 20, 1942); Dennis (Dec. 4, 1944); and Carl (Dec. 21, 1946) — their cousin Mike Love (March 15, 1941); and friend Alan Jardine (Sept. 3, 1942). Harmony singing had always been an important part of their family life, and when the Wilson parents took a holiday in Mexico in September 1961 it was a perfect opportunity for the kids to rent instruments and start a group in their living room. It was Dennis's addiction to the Californian sport of surf-ing that gave the group their initial identity, one which survives indelibly in the minds of today's audiences. He sug-gested that the group sing about the pastime, and a song (written by Brian and Mike) called `Surfin" was the im-mediate result.

Their father, Murray Wilson, himself a song-writer, took the boys along to his music publisher and the song was recorded in somewhat improvised conditions with Carl on guitar, Alan on acoustic bass, and Brian providing percussive support on a garbage can. The publisher procured a release for the record on the local X label and then the slightly larger Candix label, and against all the odds it stuck around the lower limits of the American Hot Hundred for six weeks — based mainly on sales to Californian surfer boys and girls, no doubt. They also began to appear in public, initially as the Pendletones (after a make of heavy plaid shirt which surfers wore and which became their early uni-form), briefly as Carl and the Passions, and ultimately as the Beach Boys, the last name being a suggestion from Can-dix's promotion man. Their concert debut under this name was in the Ritchie Valens Memorial Concert in Long Beach Municipal Auditorium on Dec. 31, 1961. Jardine left around this time to pursue his dentistry studies and was replaced by neighbour David Marks who played rhythm guitar, enabling Brian to switch to bass guitar.

Dennis played drums, while Mike Love- shared the lead vocals with Brian. When Candix, a small label, folded early in 1962, Murray Wilson took the boys along to Capitol Records and played producer Nik Venet acetates of `Surfin' Safari' and '409' — the latter a hymn in praise of the singer's car. Venet grasped the possibilities, signed the group, and `Surfin' Safari' became a national Top Twenty hit. 'Ten Little Indians', the follow-up, was a comparative flop, but the next one was big indeed : `Surfin' USA' reached No. 3 in the early summer of 1963. In addition, it laid bare the influences be-hind the growing talent of Brian Wilson, who was coming to the forefront as the group's real creative force. For `Surfin' USA' Brian had borrowed the tune and treatment from Chuck Berry's 'Sweet Little Sixteen', adding new words and a lead vocal surrounded by the beginnings of a cool, liquid harmony style strongly reminiscent of the Four Freshmen (and, by implication, the American glee-club tradition).

The next single, 'Surfer Girl', a wistful, yearning ballad emphasized the harmonies even more heavily as the voices began to twist and turn in creamy, close-packed, harmoni-cally sophisticated chorales, topped off with a gimmick adapted from East Coast vocal group records — Brian's cool, cruising falsetto, which became a major trademark. `Surfin' USA' and 'Surfer Girl' marked the complementary modes which Brian and the group explored for the next three years. The up-tempo style led to 'Fun Fun Fun', 'I Get Around' (a No. 1), 'When I Grow Up (To Be A Man)', `Dance Dance Dance', and 'Help Me Rhonda' (another No. 1) — all Top Ten hits in 1964 and 1965 — while the possibili-ties of the ballad form were explored with ever more trance-like effect in such classics as 'In My Room', 'The Lonely Sea', 'Girls On The Beach', 'Don't Worry Baby', 'The Warmth Of The Sun', 'She Knows Me Too Well', 'Kiss Me Baby', and 'Please Let Me Wonder' from the same period.

By this time, too, Jardine had returned to the fold, displacing Marks. On a wider front, the group's own influence had become widespread. Their early surfing records sparked off a com-plete genre, opening the way for performers like Jan and Dean (`Surf City'), Bruce (Johnston) and Terry (Melcher) with 'Summer Means Fun', Ronnie and the Daytonas (Teach Boy'), Jack Nitszche (`The Lonely Surfer'), Dick Dale and the Del-Tones (`Surf Beat'), and hundreds of aspiring Californian garage bands. When surfing's vogue dropped off, the Beach Boys put out an album of car songs called Little Deuce Coupe, featuring '409' alongside other beauties like 'Our Car Club', 'Cherry Cherry Coupe', `No-Go Showboat' and 'Custom Machine'. Sure enough, others responded : Jan and Dean with 'Dead Man's Curve' and `Drag City', Bruce and Terry with 'Custom Machine' and `Hot Rod USA', Ronnie and the Daytonas with 'GTO', the Rip-Chords with 'Hey Little Cobra' and 'Three Window Coupe'.

Through all this, Brian Wilson was as a journalist : absorbing and reflecting the emerging lifestyle of teenage California, a lifestyle which — luckily for him — kids from New York to London to Paris also decided they wanted to emulate. He wrote many of the early lyrics himself. In cold print they lack grace and wit, but sung by the group they are perfect expressions of teen angst in all its forms.
