Brian’s Hidden Beauties CLIII: Run James Run

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The one truly new song on Brian’s new solo anthology is Run James Run -and it’s a good one. Longtime fans will be familiar with the title as a working title for the Pet Sounds title track, but otherwise it is all new. Well at least new in the sense of a recent recording and new tune, but the music is brilliantly retro, hearkening back to the best of Brian’s early surf and car songs.

With some of the best guitar work on a recent Brian Wilson/Beach Boys song, lovely harmonies and a driving beat, it’s almost as if the last five decades haven’t happened. Run James Run is certainly up there with Brian’s recent best work. You can read more about it here.
