 Musical Disclosure by Perform School of music Episode 81

Today marks the final appointment of the week dedicated to the Beach Boys.

In the 1970s, the Beach Boys underwent a period of transformation and upheaval. In 1975, Brian Wilson actively rejoined the band, although he continued to refrain from participating in live concerts. However, he contributed to writing new songs that enriched the album "15 Big Ones," released in 1976. This work blended old hits from the 1950s by artists like Chuck Berry and Fats Domino, reinterpreted with the Beach Boys' distinctive style. The single "Rock and Roll Music" returned them to the American top ten, with the album reaching the eighth position. Throughout 1976, the Beach Boys embarked on a massive tour of the United States and participated in important television shows such as the "NBC TV Special" and "Saturday Night Live." In 1977, they released "Love You," an album almost entirely composed and produced by Brian Wilson. Described as a self-portrait of Wilson, this work reflects his sadness and insecurity, influenced by his personal struggles with depression and drug abuse. The late 1970s and early 1980s were marked by a series of changes and conflicts within the band. After the release of "Love You," the Beach Boys became embroiled in a dispute over the direction to take, with tensions almost leading to the group's breakup. In 1977, Dennis Wilson released his first and only solo album, "Pacific Ocean Blue," which received widespread critical acclaim for its emotional depth. In 1979, with a new record deal, the Beach Boys released "L.A.," with more polished production compared to previous works. However, despite tracks like "Baby Blue" and "Good Timin'," the album did not achieve the hoped-for success. Subsequent albums like "Keepin' the Summer Alive" (1980) kept the band's summer energy alive. In the 1980s, the Beach Boys continued their career with ups and downs. In 1983, Dennis Wilson tragically died in an accidental drowning in Marina del Rey. Despite this loss, the band decided to continue their activities. The 1980s saw the Beach Boys contribute to various film soundtracks and continue to release albums. Although they did not achieve the success of their golden years, the Beach Boys have to date released a total of 29 studio albums, a testament to the band's incredible prolificacy.


Today, we propose listening to one of the Beach Boys' more experimental tracks, "Wind Chimes," from "Smiley Smile"!
