THE BEACH BOYS - BECOMING THE BEACH BOYS: HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE THE HITE & DORINDA MORGAN SESSIONS (LP)
In September of 1961 Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Carl Wilson, and Dennis Wilson stepped up to a microphone together for the first time at the home of Hite and Dorinda Morgan to demo the Beach Boys' first three songs. Between that September date and March 1962, before signing a seven-year contract with Capitol Records on May 24, 1962, nine songs were committed to tape under the direction of Hite & Dorinda Morgan. Some iconic, others obscure 'Surfin',' 'Luau,' 'Lavender,' 'Surfin' Safari,' 'Surfer Girl,' 'Judy,' 'Beach Boy Stomp' (aka 'Karate'), 'Barbie,' and 'What Is a Young Girl Made Of'. The best of the best from these historic recordings are gathered on this landmark collection.
