Reunited Beach Boys on Jools Holland

They can sound hit-and-miss live, but there's still something very special about the Beach Boys' harmonies. The reunion LP is so much better than I'd anticipated. I've listened to it a ton and I'm hopeful that Brian Wilson will persuade the others to join him in making the "rock'n'roll" album of up-tempo tunes he has in mind.

It's a pity that Mike Love would rather revert to touring with the county fair circuit version of the band than maintain the reunited line-up, as both Wilson and Al Jardine are interested in continuing it.

Here's the group from their appearance yesterday on Britain's "Later with Jools Holland." They are playing some London dates at the moment.
