beach boy

Even band like the Beach Boys was infected with the disco virus around 1979.Their infection was almost lethal though.Their effort was Here Comes The Night and was a rather mediocre approach.Classic Beach Boys vocal harmonies over disco beat and bleeps..Horror.Harcore fans felt deeply dissapointed about the turn in the group's music.The person to blame was keybord player Bruce Johnston who produced the album LA(Light Album) and the the 12'' Here Comes The Night.This guy put out a record in 1977 called Pipeline.Maybe he decided to keep all the money to himself as this track is a killer disco stomper with amazing production(sounds like it's produced by a nu disco outfit) and a phazed pecussion break in the middle that leaves you speechles.Nice try Bruce..
