That Lucky Old Sun Track-by-track XVII: Southern California


The closing track of That Lucky Old Sun is a simple but beautiful reflection on  Brian’s career and the California dream that the Beach Boys music will always be associated with. While it may reflect an idealised world, it also shows the ability of Brian’s music to take the listener to another place.

All the great features of Brian’s music are here -the harmony, melody and the ability to effortlessly move from one section to another. The version on the album is an extension of the song as performed when the work was premiered.
