Dennis Wilson – River Song
You may recognise the above album cover if you’ve been in a record store recently. You may have also noticed that it comes with an unusually high price tag. I was home at the weekend, pilfering through my father’s vinyl collection and stumbled across the original. Opportunity knocked and it quickly became assimilated into my own quickly growing record pile.
Dennis Wilson is better known for being one of the Beach Boys, his association with Charles Manson, and his role in the cult film Two-Lane Blacktop. His only solo album (from which the above track is taken) Pacific Ocean Blue was released in 1974 and has long since been out of print, itself becoming a cult classic since Wilson’s death in 1983.
Have a listen to this song and let it floor you.
