The Beach Boys pioneered the wildly popular "Surf Sound," selling more records than any other American band. And 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of their groundbreaking and hugely influential album Pet Sounds and its follow-up single, "Good Vibrations." This book offers the first fully illustrated, in-depth examination of the group's story, with a special emphasis on the creation of those two masterpieces and what came after. More than 150 images include classic and rarely published photographs, album artwork, and archive memorabilia. By examining the writing, recording and performance of the band's entire catalogue, the book presents a unique look at the making of the Beach Boys, both before and after their 1966 triumphs.
Johnny Morgan is the coauthor of The Greatest Album Covers of All Time, The Art of the LP, and Gaga (all Sterling), among other titles. An editor, author, and journalist, he has contributed to a variety of popular music-based titles and written several music reference books. Johnny lives in London, UK.
