This week, I actually managed to tie my favorite band into my Monday morning post over at BlackGate.com.
Included with the Beach Boys’ 1972 album, Holland, was an EP. For you youngsters, that stands for ‘Extended Play’ and it was a bonus record: less music than a regular album but more than on a 45. Mt. Vernon and Fairy: a Fairy Tale, was an odd piece of music, singing and spoken verse, telling the story of a young prince and a magic transistor radio.
I talk about this rather unique piece of Beach Boys history, so head on over to Black Gate and check it out.
