Product Description

This DVD was recorded at the Beach Boys historic concert at Knebworth House on June 21st 1980. It proved to be the last time that the original Beach Boys: Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson and Alan Jardine, would appear together on any stage.

The Beach Boys are one of the most successful groups of all time, selling over 10 million records in the U.S, with Pet Sounds being generally regarded as one of the all time great albums.

The DVD includes virtually all the Beach Boys classics such as Fun, Fun, Fun, Help Me Rhonda, Sloop John B, Lady Lynda, I Get Around, Barbara Ann, Wouldn't It Be Nice, Surfin' USA, California Girls and of course Good Vibrations.

It's entertaining, nostalgic, even poignant... not much more one could ask for from a Beach Boys concert. This 70-minute concert was the last time the complete group (brothers Brian, Carl and Dennis Wilson, Al Jardine, Mike Love, and Bruce Johnston, plus backing musicians) would appear in the U.K., performing a mix of oldies ("California Girls," "Help Me Rhonda," "Fun, Fun, Fun," etc.) and some newer material. And if the show itself is somewhat pedestrian, it's still marvelous to see the three Wilsons together onstage, especially in view of the subsequent deaths of Dennis (in '83) and Carl (in '98), and Brian's eventual triumphant recovery from mental and emotional problems. To hear Carl sing so beautifully on "God Only Knows," or Dennis play drums with such power and emotion, or Brian, vacant but game, contribute a few lines to "Surfer Girl"... well, it might just bring a tear to your eye. --Sam Graham

After watching this DVD, I was kind of wondering which DVD many of the reviewers were watching. First off, Dennis looked fine. He was having a blast playing drums and joking with Mike Meros through most of the concert. Yeah, Brian looked bad, but he did back then. Anyone who saw these guys in concert from 76 on would know Brian wasn't much of a presence on stage. His vocals were pretty bad as well. That was normal. Every now and then he would surprise people, but you couldn't see a Beach Boys concert at that time and expect a lot from Brian. The rest of the guys and supporting cast did what they did, . . . they put on a good show. Unlike concerts from a few years earlier, they had already begun shortening the show, and doing more top 40 music. I miss the days when they would do Marcella, Long Promised Road, Funky Pretty and others in their live shows and play for 90 to 120 minutes. Not to mention, while the vocals are great, I miss the more rock oriented shows. The stage is fairly small compared to a lot of the shows they put on in the states, so the guys tended to stand around. So Mike isn't allowed to prance like he used to do. They all appeared in good spirits, although now and then looking like they were going through the motions. There was not a 'fight' between Carl and Mike. In those days, it was not unusual for these guys to bow together, and Mike missed his spot. This is also consistent with Carl's problems with the boys lack of rehearsal time before shows. And during Surfer Girl, it's Dennis moving closer to Mike, and Mike seems a little hesitant. First off, the rift between the two is legendary, but it also appears as though the music pushes all that aside during the shows.Read more ›

1980 was the Beach Boys just a little bit past their "post-Endless-Summer" touring prime which is generally considered to be 1975-1977. The good news is that Dennis Wilson is back on tour with big brother Brian as well. Dennis was about to enter a downward spiral at this point and Brian was coming out of one (he would relapse but eventually come clean). Dennis Wilson is the primary reason to watch this DVD. He drums (bashes is more like it), sings, and plays a little piano. He also does what he did best...antagonize Mike Love on stage! There are some genuine moments between the Wilson brothers as well. The DTS mix is great. Carl Wilson was the musical leader of the group at this point and it really shows. I've seen pretty much all the BB VHS/DVD stuff there is and this one ranks right up there.

First off, nobody loves the Beach Boys more than I do. I grew up with thier music. As a musician, I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Brian Wilson for what he taught me about harmony. I've seen dozens of their shows, some awful, some incredible. And in 1983, a famous band I was in was their opening act for 3 weeks, so I got to hang with them and hear them every night. Live performances are generally never quite up to par with studio performances, and as a performing musician, producer, and engineer, I understand that. It's nearly impossible to achieve on stage amongst the roar of amplifiers and monitors what can be done in the studio where there is a totally controlled environment - and the ability to repair any mistakes. "Good Timin'" is indeed a live performance, but it has been enhanced or 'sweetened' back in the recording studio before being released. The backround harmonies have been supplemented by overdubs, if not all replaced completely. A trained ear will hear the double-tracking of parts - commonplace in any studio recording. It just makes everything sound "fatter". This is nothing new. The Eagles have done this on all their live recordings, as have Fleetwood Mac and plenty of other vocal groups. Some groups, like the Bee Gees, will even run pre-recorded tracks at their live shows to recreate the lush wall of voices that characterize their studio recordings. Personally, I like hearing the rough edges and rawness of a true live recording. The Beach Boys made the best harmony records of anybody, so we know they can sing. I don't mind hearing a missed part or flat note here & there. I wish they'd just mixed "Good Timin'" the way it was. The real beauty here is seeing The Boys all playing together for the very last time.

As a big Beach Boys fan, I found this dvd highly enjoyable. The boys from Hawthorne sound alive and well here (with the exception of Brian and Dennis Wilson, though they can be forgiven since they were battling personal demons at this point), and the overall song selection will not let you down.
"Good Timin' (Live At Knebworth England, 1980)" is from the band's last appearance in the U. K. with the original lineup, though they obviously did know it at time. The band does plauy with a fiery edge as though it was the last time they're performing them. They sound youthful and ibrant on the rockers especially "Help Me Rhonda", "I Get Around", "Surfin' USA", "Good Vibrations", "Barbara Ann" and "Fun Fun Fun". The slow songs are a mixed bag. The best is Carl Wilson's beautiful rendition of "God Only Knows". Al Jardine also turns in a great reading of "Lady Lynda", but Brian sounds whiny on "Surfer Girl" and Dennis' once sparkling voice is unheard on "You Are So Beautiful".
Despite its flaws, this is a really great dvd. It also comes with a nice Al Jardine introduction and song commentary. Here's hoping that the four remaining Beach Boys (Al Jardine, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston and Brian Wilson) get back together soon, since the world needs them in this time of horrible music, courtesy of Britney, Christina and Eminem
