Beach Boys Pulled Out Of Doldrums

Keith Altham, New Musical Express Annual, December 1968

WITHER The Beach Boys in 1969? The group that produced 'Good Vibrations' and 'God Only Knows' have never quite recaptured the magic of those halcyon days but 'Darlin' ', 'Wild Honey', and 'Do It Again' have added more power to their surf boards in this last year and are concrete proof that they are still very much in the Big Boys Beat League along with the Stones and the Beatles!
