4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Program, poor format August 28, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This has been the summer of the Beach Boys for me. I have re-acquainted myself with their music, they have always seemed to be my first love. I got to see them in concert and was blown away by how powerful an experience it was, and have been listening to them nonstop. It is fitting then, that this should arrive at my door during the last week of summer, to sort of bookend the experience.

This show chronicles the creation of the band and features interviews, live footage, and behind the scenes looks at the production of their new album. It offers a very simplistic view of the band, there is no mention of the internal strife, lawsuits, breakdowns, etc. This is about the Boys and the music they make. It serves its purpose of showing us just how talented they are and have always been, and it truly is a joy to watch. For me, the highlight was the newly found footage of the sessions that gave us the greatest pop song ever recorded, "Good Vibrations".

This is not an in depth anthology or history of the band, nor is it a full live performance of their 2012 tour. It really only serves as a teaser for what I am sure will be an imminent live release.

I've watched it twice since it arrived today, and although it is extremely brief, it is very enjoyable. Yet for some reason, chapter selection is completely absent from this Blu-ray. I was baffled by this, it would have been nice to have the option to jump to particular moments or songs, but I suppose it's so brief it really isn't an issue. I just think they deserved a more substantial release to celebrate their 50th anniversary.

Fans will enjoy this, as I did. You won't learn anything new, but you might get swept up in nostalgia. And if you haven't been exposed to their new album, "That's Why God Made The Radio", I think this will make you want to check it out.

Add some music to your day, and give this a spin.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Not a Concert Video August 26, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Before you pre-order, note that this is basically an hour-long documentary about the reunion. It is not a concert video, although it apparently does include some concert footage.

[...]

"The hour-long DVD features exclusive 2012 interviews with The Beach Boys, live performances from the band's 2012 world tour, never-before-seen footage from the 1966 "Good Vibrations" recording sessions, moving tributes to founding members Carl and Dennis Wilson and behind-the-scenes footage from the recording sessions for their new That's Why God Made the Radio CD."

3.0 out of 5 stars better than nothing September 17, 2012
By Mike S
Format:Blu-ray
As another reviewer said, this is little more than an "advertisement" to let people know "the beach boys have reunited". What you get almost defies categorization. We open with a glimpse of a recent concert, then a group interview where the Beach Boys discuss the reunion, then reflect on their past. From there, this is almost a documentary of the history of the band. But not quite. There are discussions of the formation of the band, their first recordings, a few partial vintage TV clips, chat about the progression of the band to California girls and Pet sounds, recently discovered original footage of the band recording Good vibrations, and then we wrap it up with another glimpse of a recent concert. If you didn't know any better, this would seem the imply that the band broke up in 1966, and reunited in 2012.

Some of the discussion is interesting. But the problem is, it's too short for what it is. Actually, I'm not quite sure what it is. It's not a complete documentary of the band's history, it's not a documentary of the reunion, and it's definately not a music or concert video.

What WOULD have been nice is if they did a 4 DVD package: 1) 2 hour Documentary of the history of the band 2) A DVD of vintage TV performances/videos etc. 3) Documentary of the reunion and recording of the new album and preparation for reunion tour 4) Full recent concert.

This DVD is a little of each of those ideas combined and condenced into 50 minutes. So, like I said in my review title, this is better than nothing. But it could have been better.

3.0 out of 5 stars I don't quite "get" it October 8, 2012
By S.W.
Format:DVD
As much of a Beach Boys fan as I am, I don't quite "get" this DVD. Unlike the title implies, it is not entirely a concert video feauring performances from the group's 2012 reunion.
Although it focuses on their reunion somewhat, it seems to be more of a documentary on the early history of the band, from their formation to "Good Vibrations" in '66. There are a couple of problems with this, one of them being that most if not all of the group's longtime fans (especially ones who have been following them right from the beginning) probably already know their early history as well as their post-'66 history. Thus, a documentary --- or whatever this truly is --- on the group's early history (or for that matter, ANY of their history) probably isn't going to shed much if any new light on that history for longtime fans.
Also, for the folks who are just getting into the Beach Boys and don't know their history (or at least not their later history) and are unfamiliar with much (or most) of their music (especially their post-'60s material), this DVD simply doesn't provide enough information on the group's career overall. It would seem to say, "After 'Good Vibrations,' The Beach Boys fell off the face of the Earth, and didn't reappear until this year."
The group's history from the latter part of the '60s onward, is ignored except for their 2012 activites --- that's the thing that I don't get about the DVD. It's under an hour long; it isn't like they couldn't have fit more onto it.
For the group's newer fans, the DVD may be informative enough to make it worth buying for 10 bucks or less, but otherwise, I personally wouldn't recommend it. The footage of the group recording "Good Vibrations" may be cool, but in my opinion that's not enough to warrant buying the DVD.
