Sunflower/Surf's Up songs Product Information
Sunflower/Surf's Up album for sale by Beach Boys was released Jul 18, 2000 on the Capitol label. Mike Love has worn down the Beach Boys' cars-and-surf sound into empty exercises in nostalgia while Brian Wilson based his reputation among the rock intelligentsia almost entirely upon PET SOUNDS and the unreleased SMILE.

Released in 1970 and '71 as the first products of their new Brother Records deal with Warner Brothers, whose commercial and artistic expectations were much different than the group had experienced at Capitol, these are relaxed, confident records with a progressive, experimental edge.

Sunflower/Surf's Up album for sale Fans of the Beach Boys know all about their car songs, surfing songs, and Good Vibrations. The big time Beach Boys fans know that most of their very best music was the obscure stuff that was largely unnoticed in it's time and hardly made any impact as far as sales or the charts were concerned.

||misunderstood and underrated|
Sunflower/Surf's Up CD music The Beach Boys, like the Guess Who, got a raw deal. Perhaps it was the enormous competition from the British invasion or the many great North American rock groups and musicians from the mid sixties to the mid seventies that impeded acceptance as rock icons.

||The Short End of the Stick|
Sunflower/Surf's Up were two of the band's greatest records, records that stand up to Pet Sounds and Today!/Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!!!).

Sunflower/Surf's Up buy CD music These 2 albums along with holland make up the best of the beach boys. Buy this cd and carl/holland before the record company (in all their wisdom) pull them off the shelves.

||Beach Boys Grow Up|
Sunflower/Surf's Up songs Sunflower and Surf's Up represent a more mature, and in some senses more conventional, approach to song crafting. As with Pet Sounds, the group continued to distance itself from the overtly summer-oriented themes of their mid-sixties albums, while mostly retaining the sunny optimism of those records.
