The Beach Boys Medley/ God Only Knows by The Beach Boys

Label: Capitol 5030 Year: 1981
Factory sleeve included
Condition: M $9.50
The Beach Boys Medley/ God Only KnowsFrom a warehouse find, this is a new, unplayed stock copy, in its original Capitol factory sleeve. This well crafted medley of Beach Boys hits uses nothing but the original Mono recordings, yet manages to string together a seamless dance number from excerpts of "Good Vibrations," "Help Me Rhonda," "I Get Around," "Shut Down," "Surfin' Safari," "Barbara Ann," "Surfin' USA" and "Fun, Fun, Fun." To top off the medley, some wise soul at Capitol decided that Brian Wilson's gorgeous "God Only Knows" (B side of "Wouldn't It Be Nice") deserved another run on 7-inch vinyl, slipping it onto the B side of this 1981 single. In its first life in 1966, "God Only Knows" reached #39 on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart, while its more famous sibling reached #8. By the way, in Rolling Stone's list of their Top 500 songs, "God Only Knows" is the song at #25! Honestly, though, as good as "God" is, I find it hard to understand how neither Dave Marsh nor Rolling Stone perceived the importance and genius of "Wouldn't It Be Nice" by adding it to their respective lists. Certainly, it gets our top recommendation of 2 stars! You simply wouldn't have a complete 5-star Beach Boys collection without it. Finally, it's worth noting that this was a non-album single... I'm not sure if it ever made its way to CD or LP. Note: This beautiful 45 has no notable flaws, grading Mint across the board (Labels, Vinyl, Audio).
