Beach Boys Today! Limited Edition 180gram Audiophile LP
Brian Wilson's retirement from performing to concentrate on studio recording and production reaped immediate dividends with Today!, the first Beach Boys album that is strong almost from start to finish. 'Dance, Dance, Dance' and 'Do You Wanna Dance' were upbeat hits with Spector-influenced arrangements, but Wilson began to deal with more sophisticated themes on another smash 45, 'When I Grow Up,' on which these eternal teenagers looked forward to the advancing years with fear and uncertainty. Surf/hot rod/beach themes were permanently retired in favor of late-adolescent, early-adult romance on this album, which included such decent outings in this vein as 'She Knows Me Too Well,' 'Kiss Me Baby,' and 'In the Back of My Mind.' The true gem is 'Please Let Me Wonder,' one of the group's most delicate mid-'60s works, with heartbreaking melodies and harmonies. Be aware that the version of 'Help Me, Rhonda' found here is an earlier, and slower rendition than the familiar hit single take which was included on their next album, Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!).
