Merry Christmas From The Beach Boys

A long time ago, in 1964, The Beach Boys made a very lovely 12 song album called "The Beach Boys Christmas Album". It spawned the hit Little Saint Nick, and continues to be a holiday classic.

However, not so long ago, in 1992, some horrific human being decided it would be a good idea to "remaster" (and I use term VERY lightly) 9 of those 12 songs and issue it out on an album called "Merry Christmas From The Beach Boys". Not only do these remixes sound completely the same, the order of the songs is all messed up, and the whole thing just makes no sense to any one in the entire world.

So please, do yourself a favor and pick up the old Beach Boys Christmas album. OR BETTER YET! Why not buy Brian Wilson's Christmas album from last year here?

What's weird is that amazon shows people actually buying this album and another chop job, instead of the Ultimate Christmas cd. They must not be reading the reviews. Well at least the picture is nice.

yeah, people are sad.

but then again, its only 5 bucks.

some people just spend money for the heck of it.

It's not really that weird. Most people don't care if it's remixed or not. Many are just casual fans. They want to hear the songs (remixed or not) and thats good enough for them.

There is nothing wrong with that really. It's the similar to people who are fine with watching a movie in full screen versus in the original aspect ratio. Or seeing a colorized film versus in black and white (the way the director intended it to be seen).

I'm not that way but I can understand that not everyone cares about seeing or hearing art presented in the way it was created and or intended to be experienced.

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present. Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2010
