THE BEACH BOYS – BEST OF (CAPITOL T 20856) NOVEMBER 1966

“MONO blasts”

The Beach Boys demonstrate their perfect surf pop sounds in MONO

I bought this Beach Boys from a charity shop in Houghton last week. What a majestic find for £2. It was hiding in a box of records surrounded mainly by Perry Como and Frank Sinatra LPs.

It just goes to show that my local town (born and bred Houghton) must have had a few hip people living there during the ’60s. It wasn’t only Teddy Boys and NCB Pit workers.

The album is full of their hit singles, some B-sides and an occasional EP track, all from the period 1962 to 1966. Arguably their most successful period. Better still the record is a 1966 original release in MONO and plays perfectly.
