Surfin' Safari - Capitol 1962
The fine singles "Surfin'" and Surfin' Safari" along with the fun track "Cuckoo Clock" stand out.
Obviously the theme on most songs is either surfing or cars, and lyrically many of these songs may seem very naive, but musically it`s impossible overhear the great talent that was in this band.
The 2 on 1 Beach Boys reissue series is highly recommendable; they have informative 24 pages booklets with background stories, comments from Brian Wilson and notes about every track; it is a great read, and it makes you want more. This album is coupled with "Surfin' USA"
