'Fusilli is a keen observer and eloquent writer, bringing a fresh perspective to this seminal album with wit and pathos...a fine addition to your Beach Boys library.'
'The idea was simple: to ask a group of authors to each write a book about a classic album. What emerged became Continuum's 33 1/3 series. Without guidelines or rules, each author embraced their own favourite album and chose exactly how they wanted to write about it.As a result, each book is by turn anecdotal, obsessive, technical and personal, but always passionate.' (Swell Music, December 2006)
