AllMusic Review by

The Beach Boys blended Four Freshmen-styled vocal harmonies with Chuck Berry riffs and applied all of it to a summery California still life of surfboards, cars, and girls, coming up with some of the most perpetually enduring songs in the history of rock. This set hits some of those high points with songs like "I Get Around," "Fun, Fun, Fun," "Wouldn't It Be Nice," "Good Vibrations," and others. There's a lot more to this California saga, though, than what's found here.
