Movie Reviews

Not Much for Beach Boys' Fans
Juke Jar | Tennessee | 04/07/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Contrary to an ealier reviewer's claim that an "entire concert" is included at the end, only six songs are shown in the epilogue--two from television appearances and four from the "Lost Concert" DVD, so nothing new or special here. The main part of "Surfin' USA" is footage from bad beach movies and other non-essential cultural tidbits that have little to do with the real history of surfing, and in fact the soundtrack includes very little Beach Boys music. I think somebody is just trying to make some money off of some archival video that was never purposeful in the first place. This piece of video schlock offers nothing for true fans of either surfing or the music of the Beach Boys."

"I love the beach boys and lived through the sixties. This CD does credit to neither. To much talkin not enough rockin. The sound left a lot to be desired. All-in-all save your money. The Beach Boys are American icons; they deserve better."

"Jeers to Amazon for having this in the SURFING section! I like the Beach Boys (especially their most overlooked period of 1967-1970), but this is not surfing."
