Great in places, but like a lot of Williams' work, he is in need of an editor. However the interviews with David Anderle are essential for all Beach Boys obsessives. That and what life was like at the court of Beach Boy Brian in 66/67 - the tale of Christmas Eve. A must for fanatics. Others best avoid.

Even for a Beach Boys and Brian Wilson fan, these stray pieces from a 30-year period don't cohere in a meaningful way, the celebrated David Anderle conversation is mostly two fans using the word "amazing" and the celebrated Brian conversation is mostly him replying, "Yeah." The 30-page look at the '93 BB boxed set is the standout, a testament to Williams' devotion and ears.

Lots of little seen interviews and in depth analysis' of their work. Intresting curio's from the past.
