The Beach Boys: America's Band by Johnny Morgan

The Beach Boys: America’s Band
by Johnny Morgan [Music 781.66 Beach] 

As a lifelong Beach Boys fan, I have to read every new book that comes out on the group. This book was a fun read and had some of the best photos I have ever seen in a Beach Boys biography. The interviews and background information were very impressive. I also appreciated the complete discography, filmography and websites included at the end. I liked the format of the book, basing the chapters on the various albums that were released by the group in the past 50 years. I would definitely recommend this book to any Beach Boys fan. Even if you don’t care to read the book, it is worthwhile to just look through the photos and see the fabulous collection of concert posters and album covers. The graphic design is very well done!
