Album Review

The Beach Boys cashed in on the popular boom in country music in the early '90s with Stars and Stripes, Vol. 1, with a twist. Instead of recording a country album themselves, they hired a batch of country vocalists — ranging from Toby Keith to Willie Nelson and Lorrie Morgan — to perform the group's old hits. As for the Beach Boys themselves, they provide backing vocals. A handful of singers deliver good performances.

Customer Reviews

This is the Beach Boys

What everyone needs to know is that this is the Beach Boys with guests. Recorded as a studio album in 1996 in Nashville with Brian Wilson in the producer's chair. It was also originally entiles Vol 1 as the project believed there to be at least two records. There is a "missing" track; Tammy Wynette recorded a version of "In My Room" which missed the " cut2" for vol 1 and since there were no others......

Stars and Stripes: Songs of the Beach Boys

This Album works best as a video, which was shown recently on one of the Sky HD channels. The video shows fourteen Country & Western stars who grew up with the sound of the Beach Boys, really enjoying this gig with their heroes. The Beach Boys were on fine form, looking great for their years, and in fine voice. Brian Wilson did a superb job supervising the recording and mixing the vocals. It's just great to hear these guys and gals re-interpreting Beach Boys classics with the band and vocal harmonies creating, and even improving on the originals. Willy Nelson and Kathy Troccoli's tracks are my favourites, but BB fans will not be disappointed in this album. But see the video for the full picture! By the way 'Sail On Sailor' is also missing from the album, as well as 'In My Room'.

Sorry but..

I really have no time for Country artists ,and can't see why Brian Wilson did either .Beach Boys and rednecks do not mix .

Beginning their career as the most popular surf band in the nation, the Beach Boys finally emerged by 1966 as America's preeminent pop group, the only act able to challenge (for a brief time) the overarching success of the Beatles with both mainstream listeners and the critical community. From their 1961 debut with the regional hit "Surfin'," the three Wilson brothers -- Brian, Dennis, and Carl -- plus cousin Mike Love and friend Al Jardine constructed the most intricate, gorgeous harmonies ever...
