That Lucky Old Sun


That lucky old son on the beach, Brian Wilson lives out his California fantasy on a 2008 CD that’s sure to take it’s place in the repertoire of one of America’s greatest pop music legends. Backed by the amazing Wondermints, guitarists Jeffrey Foskett, drummer Todd Sucherman and co-composers Van Dyke Parks and Scott Bennett, not to mention guest artist Carole King, That Lucky Old Sun serves as a summary of Wilson’s star-crossed career and touches on just about every genre of music he’s been involved with since the dawn of the ‘60s pre-Surfin’ days of the Beach Boys era. Much more in the theatrical pop spirit of his all time ‘67 Beach Boys classic, Smile than other albums released by Wilson in the past 15 years, That Lucky Old Son features a few surprises along the way with several tracks excerpting components of Beach Boys classics along the way. From start to finish, with 17 tracks, That Lucky Old Son is Wilson’s ultimate suite of modern classical pop music. Three bonus include a rockin’ version of Brian and Carole King having a rave up on a cover of her ‘65 song, “I’m Into Something Good.” Back where he started off at Capitol Records, Brian Wilson is back on top with That Lucky Old Son.
