Electric Dreams

If you weren’t either soul or rock but somewhere in the middle, people had a problem knowing where to put you. And it did take time for that to change.

Errol Brown, Blues and Soul, 2009/02

Life’s a Beach …

Released in 1966, Good Vibrations proved to be The Beach Boys’ biggest hit and was almost instantly hailed by critics to be one of the greatest rock singles of all time. It was also reputed to be the most expensive single ever yet recorded — the spooky–sounding theremin part alone cost $15,000 and the final bill of $50,000 would have exceeded the cost of most albums at the time.
