Stop pacing the floor, surf and hotrod aficionados; here's the collection you've awaited for decades, the package you feared might never see legitimate release, the definitive legacy of the missing third of the Jan & Dean/Beach Boys/Bruce & Terry triumvirate.
The Best Of Bruce & Terry illuminates two important missing links in the history of rock music: that between the Brill Building pop of the early 60's and surf and hotrod music, and the other between surf/rod and the folk-rock explosion of the mid-60's. But fear not, school-a-phobics, this is much more than mere history; it's the genesis of the California Sound, a jangly, upbeat celebration of summer, girls, cars and the ocean.
Our package contains a total of 20 essential rides, all from the original master tapes; the charting singles "Custom Machine" and "Summer Means Fun," all other Columbia single sides, 4 rare cuts waxed under the name The Rogues, a slew of unreleased and first-time-stereo tracks, rare photos and extensive interviews (finally!) with Beach Boy Bruce Johnston and producer-wunderkind Terry Melcher.
