Where It All Begins
This is a tale of the long road from there to here. At
the same time as this site was begun, we began another one, that is our Nearest
Faraway Place website, and it was while putting some of the basics on that site (laying down the backing tracks, as it were),
that we realised that Brian Wilson was fast becoming the dominant presence, now this is fair enough, but The Nearest
Faraway Place isn't just about Brian, nor is just about The Beach Boys, so......we felt that Brian should have his own space,
as it were, to spread out, hence this, The Brian Wilson Legacy. It will be a companion site to The Nearest Far Away Place, and to a third website, The
Beach Boys Legacy.The goal of this particular site is not, repeat not to dissect Brian Wilson's life, yet again, this has
been done so many times, in fact too many times, in our opinion, Brian is now happy, and more importantly, he's recording
and even more importantly, performing. What we are going to do is take a look at a few well chosen albums, both The Beach
Boys and Brians body of solo work, this being said, Pet Sounds has already made in its presence known, so while we have a
page here, dedicated to the aforesaid album, we have also created a couple of mini-websites, so that we may go
into greater detail about Pet Sounds and Smile, you may reach those sites here and here or via a couple of links on the Pet Sounds Page.
That's about it, then....enough out of us, Let's listen to Brian
Love and Mercy.
