JAN & DEAN - The Story

Image hosted by Photobucket.com


Quando os dias começarem a crescer e o calor a apertar a minha sugestão é que sigam as placas que dizem “praia” ao som desta colectânea de 19 temas do ‘surfin’ duo’ JAN & DEAN – que podem encontrar, passe a publicidade, na Worten por menos de 5 euros. A primeira metade do CD começa com o single de 1958, Jennie Lee (ainda com Arnie Ginsburg no lugar de Dean Torrence) e prossegue com doo-wop cândido que alimentava a imaginação de garotinhas pré-púberes no final da década de 1950. O duo era, então, um caso de sucesso gerido por Herb Alpert e Lou Adler e não tardariam a cruzar-se com uns conterrâneos conhecidos pelo nome de BEACH BOYS onde um jovem Brian Wilson aprenderia algumas das inovadoras técnicas de produção de Jan Berry. A admiração mútua acabaria em parceria na feitura da imortal Surf City, canção que lançou toda a cultura surf do início da década de 1960 e que as gerações mais recentes talvez conheçam pelos RAMONES ou na versão ruidosa dos THE JESUS & MARY CHAIN (Kill Surf City - lado B do single April Skies, de 1987). É com ela que começa a segunda metade do CD, um desfiar de clássicos surf, alguns escritos com Wilson como Drag City, Dead Man’s Curve, The New Girl In School e Ride The Wild Surf. Música para durar todo o Verão, com ou sem prancha.

Hello Familyc, I see you're blog is quite unique... I just hope it doesn't get destroyed with blog spam. I liked what you wrote here.. so I'm bookmarking you in my special place for quality blogs. My blog isn't as good as yours, but I do have a surf dvd site, which I should probably turn into a surf dvd blog. I certainly have some good ideas now that I examined you sweat blog here. This has been a nice treat Familyc, good to know of a blog owner of high quality.

Thanks for the good read.

Familyc, I am truly impressed and glad I found your blog. I'm in Alaska right now of all places, and I was lucky enough to find an internet connection on this horrifying trip to see the grandparents. Landing on your blog was just what I needed. It warmed me up with it's curious topic, helped me escape the family madness, and gave me some great ideas for my surf video website. If you have time I could use some tips from a pro on my surf video site, but no pressure.

Thanks for the relief... :)

Hi Familyc, I see you've aquired quite a skill for the web. I was wondering if you'd be willing to stop by my surfing dvd site and give me some tips. Please don't confuse this with another spam comment, I was just out looking for surfing dvd sites and your blog came up. I noticed you've done a great job so I thought I'd compliment... Anyway, feel free to check me out and good luck with your project.

See ya ~

Hi, you almost lost me for one second there... but I'm glad I didn't click away. First, I enjoyed your post, and second, maybe you can help. I don't know how much blog spam you get but I get tons on my blog. Most of the time I'm talking about surfing dvd because I have a surfing dvd website, and people post all this junk with their links and stuff. As blog owners, I guess we'll always be subject to the unethical and inconsiderate. Well, hopefully it's not driving you to crazy... Good luck partner, enjoy the positives friend.

Bye ~
