V.A.Here Today! The Songs Of Brian Wilson
The collection opens with Darian Sahanaja of the Wondermints' recording of ‘Do You Have Any Regrets?’, a rare composition from Wilson’s unissued “Sweet Insanity” album of the early 90s. While Wilson’s version was a rather frantic latin-styled piece, Sahanaja’s is a homage to the 1965-era Beach Boys.
Other highlights include superb recordings of songs from “Pet Sounds” by Kirsty MacColl, Carmen McRae, Nick DeCaro, Betty Everett, Bobby Vee and Louis Philippe, which prove Wilson's compositions easily lend themselves to interpretation by artists from all genres of music. Those who own a copy of MacColl’s harmony-drenched ‘You Still Believe In Me’ single might have noticed a message etched into the run-off groove: God Bless Brian - a sentiment echoed by all lovers of great music.
