The Beach Boys - Surf’s Up 1967 (Solo Version)

The “Surf’s Up” ’67 track is the track that blew me way. It is probably the most beautiful version I’ve ever heard. Brian is at his vocal peak, but with that laid back soulful thing he had going on at the time. It was a period where he and Carl [Wilson] almost sound identical. It is just spine-tingling great. Brian had just had his piano custom tuned to give it that Wild Honey sound and wanted to hear how it sounded in a recording. And so he sits down and performs “Surf’s Up” from start to finish. Nothing really new in structure or composition, but it is interesting to know that he was still enthusiastic enough to want to perform it even after Smile had pretty much been retired.
