The Beach Boys – Summer Love Songs (EMI Music Canada)

BBoys.jpgThe Beach Boys catalogue has been plundered countless times for compilations like Summer Love Songs. The compilation features six new stereo mixes of older songs and even though the collection falls back on standards like the fabulous Wouldn’t It Be Nice, Surfer Girl, Help Me Rhonda and God Only Knows, there are a few additional tracks that help add weight to the collection as a whole: 

Our Sweet Love is a welcome addition; I always felt as though the track was one of the strongest on 1970’s Sunflower. There is a Dennis Wilson track (the lushly orchestrated Fallin’ In Love) which was previously unreleased while 1965’s Good To My Baby highlights the awe-inspiring harmonies that the group was capable of.
