Al And Brian In-Depth

If the last issue of ESQ looked back at the past and the nostalgia of a “close as possible to a Beach Boys reunion CD”, the fall issue focuses on the present and the two significant recent solo releases from Brian Wilson and Al Jardine. And even if both albums delve back into the past for inspiration, it is clear ,from the in-depth interviews in this issue of the magazine, that both artists have a very current depth and spark that makes both of these CDs a vital extension to the Beach Boys oeuvre .

The edition also contains the usual news and reviews, including the upcoming Beach Boys dates in South Africa. There is also a loving tribute to “superfan” Bob Hanes who passed away recently. Once again, you should be heading to http://esquarterly.com/home.html to get subscribed, especially with the 50th anniversary coming up.
