Dennis Wilson lives!
By A.D. Amorosi
While we’re not one to celebrate sales charts, I have to
admit these marks are impressive. According to Sony/BMG Legacy:
4 ROCK RELEASE ON AMAZON.COM DAY OF RELEASE!
2 BEST SELLER AT AMEOBA RECORDS IN LOS ANGELES!
16 DEBUT ON THE UK
We’re no talking about a Beck or a Coldplay. This is the
Epic/Legacy release of Pacific Ocean
Blue: Legacy Edition – troubled Beach Boy drummer Dennis Wilson’s solo
album from 1978 and its accompanying tracks from his unfinished Bambu sessions. To say that the moody
record was a lost emotive masterpiece might be a bit much. But it was a gruff
blue-eyed soul/folk/rock effort that showed off skills only hinted at within
latter-day B-Boys hits such as “Sail On Sailor” and other Brother label
died in 1983, at age 39.
