“Under the leadership of original Beach Boys Al Jardine (the writer and singer of 'Help Me Rhonda', among others), a new, exciting incarnation of The Beach Boys has come together. The Beach Boys tour has been dubbed the 'Family and Friends' tour, which includes multi-generations of Beach Boys for 10 years, featuring Adam & Matt Jardine (Al's sons), Carnie and Wendy Wilson (Brian's daughters) and Carl Benton Wilson, son of Dennis. In November 1999 they took their California Saga to Nevada and showered the audiences with their sun-drenched harmonies. Brian Wilson standards took on a whole new life with the added dimension of his daughters' beautiful voices. And for devoted Beach Boys fans the inclusion of seldom heard and wonderfully performed rarities like 'Wild Honey' and 'Break Away' made each performance an evening to remember. This disc is the next best thing to a classic Beach Boys concert. 27 tracks! 2001.” – Amazon description
