Brian’s Hidden Beauties CLXVIII: Be Here In The Morning Darling

One of the treasures of the new 1968 compilations  is the Brian Wilson-composed instrumental, Be Here In The Morning Darling. The title may indicate it is a derivation of one of the released tracks from Friends, but it is actually a completely different piece of music -one that stands alone well as an instrumental, and indicates that even in 1968, Brian was still doing “big band” music with interesting percussive effects -the drumming is some of the strongest in the Beach Boys canon. This song alone is a great Christmas present and an immediate inductee in our “hidden beauties.”
