While never a household name, Bruce Johnston enjoyed one of the longest and most intriguing careers in pop music. The Beach Boy of the future lays it down rough and rockin' for the UCLA college kiddies with a shake-'em-down spirit that's hard to ignore. With vocals going on and off mic, an occasional sax section darting in and out, a reverb-soaked lead guitar, and a hyperactive drummer, this is bare-bones Saturday-night rock & roll from the post-twist, pre-Beatles era, a period seldom documented with this much abandon.
