Bruce Johnston - Going Publicdotdot
artworkEx-Fantastic Baggies, former Rip Chords, current Beach Boys vocalist, Bruce Johnston has been a studio lizard and hit band player for a long time. Like him or not, you can't fault his success. Some of his work has been splendid (Jersey Channel Islands - Part 7), others not so. This album contains a bizarre version of Pipeline. It was also issued on 12" and 7" vinyl. This is the album with Disney Girls on it, produced by Gary Usher.

Pipeline dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Steve Douglas' classic, originally issued from his Catalinas sessions, done with a deeper richer double picked lead, and plenty of thump. The bass & guitar tandem double picking is really cool. This brilliantly dramatic number is no less effective when rearranged like these lads have done it. Nice track.
