The Warmth of the Sun: Songs Inspired by the Beach Boys

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Cub Koda
Subtitled Songs Inspired by the Beach Boys, this 19-track collection is an odd-duck assortment of new and old tracks that somehow all fit under this surf, hot rod, Brian Wilson-influenced umbrella. From the obvious "G.T.O.," "New York's a Lonely Town," "Hot Rod High," and "Competition Coupe" to First Class' "Beach Baby" to the not-so-obvious "Yellow Balloon," "My World Fell Down," and "Channel Surfing" to Eric Carmen's "She Did It", this is a set of tunes that actually extend the musical ideas of Wilson and the group into modern times, showing the utter timelessness of their work. An interesting idea, an even better compilation.
