Dennis Wilson Pacific Ocean Blue 180g Import LP
1977 Solo Album On 180g Audiophile Vinyl!
At first a somewhat un-noticed Wilson brother at the beginning of the Beach
Boys' career, Dennis Wilson later matured into an excellent songwriter,
producer, and vocalist. His heartfelt ballads and pop gems contributed heavily
to the Beach Boys' late '60s and early '70s output.
A 'target' of female enthusiasm, Dennis was assigned lead vocals for a few early
novelty songs: "Little Girl (You're My Miss America)", "Surfers Rule," and "This
Car of Mine." His first hit came in 1965 when "Do You Wanna Dance" opened the
The Beach Boys Today! album and cracked the Top 20.
After the high peaks and deep valleys of the Beach Boys career during the late
'60s, Dennis began writing songs ("Little Bird", "Be Still") for 1968's Friends.
Throughout the early '70s, Beach Boys fans counted on at least two Dennis songs
on each LP, often tender ballads. He made his first attempt at a solo album as
early as 1970, but quietly released only one single. He started to work again in
1975, recording with friend and producer Gregg Jakobsen during 1976 to complete
Pacific Ocean Blue.
Though Dennis had started to work on his second album (provisionally titled
Bamboo) even before the release of Pacific Ocean Blue, increasing problems
caused several holdups. In late 1983 Wilson drowned while diving around his boat
in Marina del Ray, CA. Pacific Ocean Blue is his only complete solo effort
released to the public and we're pleased to offer it in audiophile quality!
