Feel Flows The Sunflower & Surf's Up Sessions [2xLP]
By late 1969 the Beach Boys were in deep trouble.
The sunshine surf rock sound that skyrocketed the band to international fame was now firmly out of fashion, replaced by harder rock. But, despite dramatic cultural shifts and myriad distractions, the Beach Boys never stopped working.
Both Sunflower and Surf’s Up received warm reviews from critics at the time but did not achieve the commercial success of the band’s earlier output. Over the years, a few of the songs slowly wormed their way into public consciousness, most notably Dennis Wilson’s “Forever.”
