“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Dennis Wilson's Pacific Ocean Blues is one of the greatest albums I have ever heard and everytime I share it with someone else, they have at least acknowledged the beauty of it. I bring it up because my parents actually gave me a copy of this album on vinyl today for my birthday. It is hard to find and in the condition mine is in, even harder. Included was the original record sleeve, gatefold cover and insert, with the vinyl being near mint. Ah, mind numbing.
Anyway, this album is currently unavailable in any format. All we have floating around are vinyl copies and cassettes, but you can't just go down to Best Buy and get this...unfortunantly. Well during my search for this album I came across Dan Addington's site that devotes itself to everything Wilson. He has even produced 2 cds, in which you can purchase, that have the songs from this album, some Beach Boys stuff he did, and unreleased tracks. I bought Dreamer and was stunned. I contacted him and for an extremely low cost (price of cd) he made a copy of the original POB from vinyl and burned me a cd. This guy loves Dennis and wants other to know his music. Check out the site here.
River Song (Dennis Wilson/Carl Wilson) This might be my greatest gift of knowledge to you and if you have a hard time getting a copy let me know, but what ever you do, get your hands on these songs!
