Product Description

Amazon.com

It takes a lot of cowabunga (or something!) to rerecord classic Beach Boys fare, beach or no beach. But the makers of Catch a Wave: Beach Music for Kids can't be denied, even if their thin voices aren't always quite the match for legendary Brian Wilson songs such as "When I Grow Up (To Be a Man)" and the immortal "In My Room." Still, kid vocalists Tahkus Ekedal, Bernie Steinberg, and Sudhananda give it a big go and manage to capture the spirit and sentiment of these tunes (if not the perfect wave of sound). Surrounded by other Beach Boys stuff, from "Surfin Safari," "Surfer Girl," and "Fun, Fun, Fun" to "Kokomo," "Dance, Dance, Dance" and other summer songs, lie the predictable versions of "Wipe Out," "Little Old Lady from Pasadena," and "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini," novelty pieces made for surf and sand. If nothing else, hearing these kids cover what could well be the soundtrack for the endless summer, grown-ups will want to dust off their old copies of Beach Boy albums or, better yet, update them to CD. --Martin Keller

This is a fine CD, but the Beach Boys' voices were so angelic to begin with, that the original recordings are quite listenable for kids. My 3-year old loves the Beach Boys. Given that most of the original Beach Boys' recordings consisted of sophisticated vocal and musical arrangements (how many pop songs do you know that regularly include French horns, kettle drums, sleigh bells, banjo, and FIVE-part vocal harmonies?), you probably can't go wrong playing the original songs.

I was disappointed by the versions of Beach Boy songs on this CD. I did not feel that these versions for children added anything to the original songs. I am sure your children will enjoy the (mainly) short and joyful tunes of the original artist.

I am a huge beach boy fan myself, and I find the orignals to be better. Their voices had a melodic ring, and the real ones should not try to be impersonated. Some of these songs are OK though for kids singing them.

An extra star just for the effort. Do yourself a favor and listen to the song samples first and then ask yourself if you want to hear this for several hours a day if your child actually likes it.
