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.

How this Came About

There wasn't any "Beachboys trying to go country" intentions here at all. Brian Wilson simply put out a cattle call and these artists grabbed dibs first because they justifiably idolize the man and his work.

Clever

Beach Boys harmonies with modern instrumentation, different vocals, and a totally different feel. These songs transcend time and genres.

Love Kathy & Lorrie

The two best songs on this album are definitely "I Can Heart Music" by Kathy Troccoli and "Don't Worry Baby" by Lorrie Morgan. Download them, you won't regret it!
