BACKGROUND INFO (ABOUT THIS RELEASE): This is a UK promo audio CD. It is Part One of a two CD set - the second CD (Volume Two) is listed separately. Both volumes feature tracks from The Beach Boys landmark concert performance at the aforementioned historic UK venue in June 1980. Knebworth Park in Hertfordshire, is Britain’s largest music venue and is also the site of the famous stately home. It has played host to many iconic performances, of which this is one. It is renowned for being last major UK performance including the complete lineup of all six Beach Boys (Brian Wilson, Dennis Wilson, Carl Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine and Bruce Johnston). Not only does it provide a nice overview of their career, but it was reputed to be the last ever recorded performance by the original Beach Boys line-up.
These two volumes were produced in response to a resurgence of interest in The Beach Boys due to the long awaited release of Brian Wilson’s Smile. They were intended to boost sales of the back catalogue including rereleases such as Pet Sounds (40th Anniversary) and U.S. Singles Collection: The Capitol Years 1962-1965 (together with what were at that time recent/forthcoming releases such as: Songs From Here & Back; Christmas Harmonies; and of course the Knebworth concert DVD). Currently the whole “The Beach Boys: Good Timin' - Live at Knebworth 1980” performance can be viewed on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFF8TRflBRA
Please note - the CD which is for sale here has significantly better sound quality than the performance on YouTube (and the same goes for the Volume 2 CD)!
