Mount Vernon And Fairway-Theme
Written by: Brian Wilson. Additional material by Jack Reiley and Carl Wilson
Produced by: Carl Wilson
Recording date: 1972
Lead Vocal by: Narrated by Jack Reiley
Originally appeared on: Mount Vernon & Fairway (bonus EP with Holland LP)
Subsequently appeared on:
This is the start of Brian's fairy-tale, entitled Mount Vernon and Fairway (after the intersection where the Love family grew up.) Regarded as an allegory of Brian's creative life, the rest of the Beach Boys refused to put it on the Holland album, and it was issued as a separate bonus EP instead.
This is essential listening for those attempting to understand Brian's state of mind. Only Brian, out of all pop artists, would attempt a fairy tale.
