ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chris Farmer, the former bass player and vocalist for The Beach Boys from 1995 to 2007, releases his first solo disc.

A few years ago, Chris and some of the other support musicians of The Beach Boys went into the studio and recorded an entire set of their favorite songs from the road. For example, \"California Dreamin\'\" was a song that Chris sang lead vocals with The Beach Boys, and it became associated with him when he was on tour with the group. The tracks remained unfinished for several years. In October 2007, Chris went into the studio to finish the songs.

It is like a \"Who\'s who\" from the Beach Boys traveling band from over the years including former and current touring members, Adrian Baker, Mike Kowalski, Scott Totten, Jeffrey Foskett, Randell Kirsch, Tim Bonhomme, and John Cowsill. (No original Beach Boys are on this cd.)

The CD is co-produced by longtime Beach Boys sound engineer Jeff Peters.

california dreamin
This is an excellent reprentation of the Beach Boys as they are now, but without one of the original members, e.g.Mike Love, present. I have missed their shows twice recently in the UK, but this album more than compensates. Harmonies are true to originals, but together with production, just different enough to be interesting Hope they do more.
