Description

Formed in 1961 when Dennis Wilson, the only Beach Boy to regularly visit the beach, asked his brother Brian to write a song about the sport of surfing. The Beach Boys reached number 75 in national charts with their first single (the resultant song ‘Surfin’) and were immediately signed to a major label. Though many debut albums in the early ’60s were mainly built around a few smash-hits, the Beach Boys’ 1962 full length debut on Capitol (featuring such hits as ‘Surfin’ Safari’, ‘409’ and their version of the Eddie Cochran classic ‘Summertime Blues’) remains one of the greatest first steps in American pop culture, and a mandatory chapter in the history of rock and roll.
