Recorded: June 13, 1962; January 5 – February 12 1963; Capitol Studios and United Western Recorders, Hollywood

Newly remastered for vinyl and in hi-res by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, Surfin’ USA is presented here in both mono and stereo.

The stereo editions of Surfin’ USA were originally mixed in stereo by their own preferred engineer, Chuck Britz, ostensibly under the group’s supervision.

“Brian may or may not have been present for those mixing sessions — evidence suggests that he trusted Chuck’s skills enough to let him prepare those mixes on his own — but the group held onto their multitrack tapes and delivered stereo masters to Capitol, rather than allowing Capitol to prepare their own stereo versions. Later, when Brian was only delivering mono masters, Capitol would prepare the Duophonic pseudo stereo editions for the stereo market,” says Alan Boyd, producer and Beach Boys’ archivist.

The Beach Boys’ debut album, recorded in an era in which little was expected of rock groups in the way of strong LP-length statements, is mostly thin and awkward in both the songwriting and production departments. The title track, their first true smash, is great, as is its flip side (“409”), which was not only a hit in its own right, but was the first vocal hot rod classic. “Surfin’,” their debut single (and small national hit), is also good, and one of the few Beach Boys tracks that could be said to have a garage-like quality. Unfortunately, most of the other cuts (most of which are group originals) are substandard ditties, as Brian Wilson had a way to go before honing his compositional genius. It does, however, afford a glimpse of the group as they sounded when they were a true band in the studio, before most of their parts were played by session musicians.

Little Deuce Coupe is the fourth studio album by the Beach Boys, and third overall LP release within 1963. Despite the potential for over-saturating the record market, Little Deuce Coupe was a success, reaching number four in the United States during a 46-week chart stay, and eventually certified platinum by the RIAA. Because it largely deals with cars as a subject matter, some observers have retroactively cited Little Deuce Coupe as an early example of what would become known as a concept album.
