The title track is a well-known pop standard, of course, popularised by Frankie Laine and also done by luminaries such as Louis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra. The album is a homage to Southern California and the extract of the song used to start the album hearkens to the luck that California may be seen to have, with all its natural and human resources, not least of the Beach Boys. Of course, beneath that luck is a darker side, and these are themes that come through on this record.
