The songs are good but for some annoying reason the producers decided to add the sounds of tuning to a radio station to the beginning and ending of some songs. Why ruin their best song?? (Beach Baby)

If you like Beach Baby you'll like the rest of this album. Most of it is fast paced rock with ample backing instruments, but there are some great mellow songs as well.

It would be tempting for a progressive rock and free jazz freak like me to crack a snide joke about First Class, who had a big hit with "Beach Baby" on top forty radio in the early 1970s.

I won't. These album are actually quite good. First Class was going totally against the grain here, when glam and Led Zeppelin were huge. This music does not even have any of Big Star;s pop revisionism.

Don't get me wrong: these albums are no Pet Sounds. Not even Summer Days (and Summer Nights). If First Class makes a bad artistic move, it is that they all sing the same part most of the time.

But this is fun pop, and for what that's worth, this is quite enjoyable.
