Less than I expected.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celebration: Live at Big Sur (Audio CD)
All right, it's partially my fault. I was listening to Beach Boys, was very much in a Beach Boys mood, saw this on Amazon.com, and purchased it, assuming "Beach Boys, et al," not "et al with one Beach Boys tune."
Sorry to you folk fans, but I'm not into Joan Baez all that much. And I'm not so nostalgically inclined--and have been to Big Sur only once--so there's limited appeal to me. Joan's got a great voice, though I got sick of "Dixie" a long time ago; Linda Rondstadt sounds almost out of Nashville; and Kristofferson's tunes made my colleagues ask me when I was going to the truckstop for dinner. Country Joe and Merry Clayton. Yeah, if I must.
Were I folk or folk/rock fan, I'd probably doing cartwheels. In that sense, "Wouldn't It Be Nice" by the Beach Boys is out of place on the album--like, say, Dylan doing a guest appearance on Lawrence Welk.
For those who are fans of that genre, you'll probably program your CD players to slide by the Boys.
Oh, well. I'll give it to my wife, who'll listen to Joan over and over...
