Product Description

Vol. 1 couldn't cover all the essentials; here are the '60s hits In My Room; Wendy; Little Honda; When I Grow Up; The Little Girl I Once Knew; Caroline, No; Heroes and Villains; Darlin'; Friends; Do It Again; I Can Hear Music; Break Away; Wild Honey , and more Beach Boys musts!

Amazon.com

Only one title on the second volume of the three-volume Good Vibrations best-of series cracked the U.S. top 10, 1964's "When I Grow Up to Be a Man." (Five of the selections here made the U.K. charts--"Do It Again," "I Can Hear Music," "Break Away," "Darlin'," and "Cottonfields.") In contrast to its loaded-with-hits predecessor, Greatest Hits Volume 1: 20 Good Vibrations, Volume 2 serves up songs that stand as second-tier Beach Boys--but only in commercial terms. The likes of "In My Room," "Don't Worry, Baby," "Caroline, No," and "Heroes and Villains" stand well above Volume One's "409," "Little Deuce Coupe," and "Sloop John B" in their contribution to the group's incredible legacy. Those hungry for hits will want to stick with the earlier volume, but burgeoning Beach Boys boosters will find this 20-song set every bit the match--and arguably the subjugator--of its all-hits forerunner. --Steven Stolder

This cd is an excellent addition to any fan's library or as a primer for new fans as well. The songs here are some of the more underrated or unrecognized songs of the Beach Boys's careers. They deal with Brian Wilson's increasing songwriting maturity and emotional themes deeper than those the Beach Boys began their career with. Love, Isolation, and Loneliness are some.
"In My Room" is worth the price of the disc alone, the harmonies are beautiful and serene. One of their best. Other songs that deal with more emotional territory that are just as melodic are "Don't Worry Baby" (with a more upbeat tempo, but a song about love underneath it all), "Caroline No" from the Pet Sounds album, and "The Warmth of the Sun". These songs are just beautiful with sound that just rings in your ears so you just don't want it to end. However, there are still some fun tracks that remind you of the surf and and sun like "Little Honda" and "All Summer Long." Also, "Heroes and Villians" is an unbelievable song, arranged with so much assurity that you can hardly believe what your hearing. And that is a good thing.
The slight negative to this album is you'll be sorely missing the presence of Brian Wilson in the last third or so of the disc as his input with the group was somewhat limited at the time. The songs are still enjoyable, like "Bluebirds Over the Mountain," but missing the genius of Wilson.
An excellent disc, highly recommended with disc one as well.

As the album title indicates, this collection picks up where Volume 1 ends. Although some of the songs barely cracked the Top 40, I feel these songs are just as important and do more than just "supplement" Volume 1. Like Volume 1, these songs are short radio versions.
The liner notes are enjoyable along with the colorful pictures, song credits and chart positions. As stated in my title, you can't just buy this without getting the other two volumes. Plus, this three volume set may save you from buying their more expensive box set which contains over 100 songs. With this three volume, three CD set, you get 60 songs you will want. Highly recommended.

They are starting to redeem themselves a lttle for shunning Brian the first time around. Too little too late? No way. This music is timeless. This disc represents the more serious and adventerous side of Brian Wilson. In my opinion, this is the best and most diverse single Beach Boys disc ever released. Presented in their original mono/single mixes, they way Brian mixed them and the way they should be heard, but also remastered to accomodate mono sound that can be hear on all surround speakers. Very nice job Capitol! Although I think the 3 tracks on Vol 1 from Pet Sounds and Good Vibrations would feel more at home on this collection, I'm definitely not complaining. This truly is the best of the Beach Boys! Not as commercial as Vol I...absolute genius at work here!

Let's begin by ignoring (and hoping they all go away) all the other hits repackages that Capitol Records has put out on behalf of the Beach Boys. Taken in comparison with other bands, Greatest Hits Vol. 2 albums usually aren't as interesting because either the act had less hits or no hits, like The Best of The Stylistics Vol. 2. Capitol has here put together the second of what could easily be four best of packages. Three are already released. Compared to Vol. 1, this pack- age features more ballady work from the early days and strong tracks from the post-Brian Capitol era. Capitol, for its part, did not plan on a Vol. 2 and 3 initially, yet here we have an excellent companion piece. IT IS INAPPROPRIATE TO PURCHASE VOL. 1 OR VOL. 3 WITHOUT VOL. 2, whether for oneself or as a gift. Don't pass it by.

Volume 2 in the "Good Vibrations" series tends give a more intriguing look at The Beach Boys. There is little, if any, inklings of the classic surf numbers. This disc seems to focus more on Brian Wilson's studio wizardry and their unique harmonies.
The first 11 tracks are from when the band was still hot and tearing up the charts. Here is where you'll find the eloquent "In My Room", the gloomy but optimistic "The Warmth Of The Sun" (great Brian falsetto on this one), the "faster, faster" vocal riff on "Little Honda", and the heartshattering "Don't Worry Baby", to name a few. Other gems include the one "Pet Sounds" track, "Caroline, No", the heartwrenching "Please Let Me Wonder", and the upbeat grooves on "You're So Good To Me".
The rest of the disc is from when the band started to become passe. Here we get tracks that are relative unknowns, with the exception of the infamous "Heroes And Villains". There's there two top 20 hits from this period, the pretty "Darlin'" and the nostalgic "Do It Again". There's also the sweet "Friends", a rock reworking of the country standard "Bluebirds Over The Mountain", and Carl's heavenly high on "I Can Hear Music". Closing this album is "Breakaway", featuring ebullient harmonies, and another reworked country standard, a marvelous Al Jardine - produced "Cottonfields".
I heavily suggest you purchase this album. It not only is full of great music but exposes the casual listener to a whole new world of Beach Boys music that they never heard before.
