THE ALTERNATE PARTY ALBUM by The Beach Boys.

We are in 1965. Brian Wilson is composing and recording parts of Pet Sounds but Capitol wants a new album for Christmas. Who gave the idea? Mike Love? (he says that) or Brian? Personally I think the idea of an unplugged album came from Brian. No new songs, no studio musicians. An album easy and fast to made and.....we have a number one on billboard!!!

The Beach Boys play all the instruments (with a little help on percussion and Dean Torrence of Jan and Dean singing Barbara Ann) and sing a lot of oldies. With relax and in a few days, they recorded an entire album and could choose what songs should be out. Yes it´s a 60´party, so call your friends and girlfriends, have some chat and sing your favourite oldies.

Always underrated, this album and these sessions cacht the 60´s spirit. Have a good time and nothing else matters! Why should the songs be perfect? Why should you remeber all the lyrics? You dont need to be a virtuous musician. Its just a party....

Has anyone noticed any pops on any of these tracks from Party disk 1? Im using Winamp 5.2. Seems like an encoding thing. I converted one of the files to a wav with Nero
and theyre still there. Maybe I have a bad or outdated codec? Any ideas?

Im so happy to have this stiff. Cant wait for the rest.
