RARE 36 years ago Australian LP release::: Brian Wilson Rarities turned up here in MINT, never saw or noticed it around before - must be obscure - not released in the USA.... It's a completely different album than the American "Rarities" album, primarily drawn from singles sides late in their Capitol contract.
The tracks by Beach Boys artist friends that are included are pretty darn legendary in their own right, and in nearly all cases just about impossible to find via the original 45 releases. Brian Wilson Rarities includes rare sides from Wilson-produced Capitol singles by The Honeys, Gary Usher, Glen Campbell and Sharon Marie, plus both sides of a single by The Survivors (a.k.a., Wilson and some buddies).
Of these songs, "Guess I'm Dumb" by one-time Beach Boy Campbell is easily the best. Also interesting is Sharon Marie's "Thinkin' 'Bout You Baby," which became a hit a few years later as "Darlin'" for the Beach Boys. The others are mostly fun rock 'n roll in the same vein as the early Beach Boys albums. All of these songs have been somewhat easier to find in the digital era via a comprehensive Honeys CD and an Ace UK comp, Pet Projects.
There's still a trio of songs here that remain unreleased in the U.S. to this day, as far as I know. There's a fun, frat-rock take on Ray Charles' "What'd I Say," a 1964 live take by the Beach Boys in Sydney, Australia. The real reason to find this LP today, though, is the inclusion of a pair of tracks by Dennis Wilson and Rumbo. Previously released only in certain overseas markets as a single, "Lady" and "Sound of Free" would have been worthy additions to era albums such as 20/20 or Sunflower, but instead have become a little-known footnote as Dennis' first solo release. That's a shame, as the Dennis Wilson songs from this era often were some of the Beach Boys' most interesting new tracks.
The album liner notes state the single was released in August 1969, but judging by the UK release number on EMI's Stateside label, turn of the 1980's is probably more accurate; the singles on either side of it (one of them by Carl Wilson proteges The Flame) are from late 1970 and early 1971. "Lady" features one of the earliest uses of an electronic drum track I've heard, along with a compact string section, bass, acoustic guitar, and very spare electric lead. "Sound of Free" definitely sounds a bit more like what the Beach Boys proper were up to at the time -- as well as The Flame, actually. "Rumbo," for those who are wondering, is Daryl Dragon, famous later in the '70s as "The Captain."
