Brian Wilson I Just Wasn't Made For These Times 180g LP
180g Audiophile Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso With Kevin Gray From Original MCA Records Master Tapes!
Along with The Beach Boys, the legendary Brian Wilson, the rock and roll genius
and ambassador of time honored classic rock and popular song, invented and
helped shape the California sound for the entire world to enjoy for over fifty
years. His distinct vision and musical imagery for The Beach Boys truly made
them one of the first rock bands in history to sell multi-platinum and gold
albums to millions of fans around the globe.
In 1996, Brian Wilson and long-time admirer superstar producer Don Was
collaborated on what was to become a much applauded project in Wilson’s long
time solo career. Pre-dating his own Smile album release by several years, I
Just Wasn’t Made For These Times was a soundtrack to the critically acclaimed
documentary which went on to receive several Emmy and Sundance nominations
during the film’s initial run at the theatre and on the Disney Channel.
Organically recorded with its minimalistic approach, Don Was reached for and
delivered the soulful side of Brian Wilson. For this masterwork, Brian performs
a number of his classic Beach Boys hits like The Warmth Of The Sun, Do It Again
(featuring daughters Carnie and Wendy Wilson) and album track treasures like
Meant For You from Friends, ‘Til I Die from Surf’s Up and of course the Pet
Sounds classic Caroline, No.
For this album, Brian Wilson also included some of his later solo hits like Love
And Mercy, Melt Away and a very rare home studio demo of Still I Dream Of It,
plus even more Beach Boys classics like This Whole World from Sunflower.
In an effort to continually offer the consummate music fan with the greatest
recordings of all time, Friday Music proudly presents for the first time ever on
