The Beach Boys – Live At Knebworth 1980

Billed as the last recorded concert by the original line-up (actually, Bruce Johnston didn’t join till 1965), this doesn’t usurp the double live album but does arrive with a DVD of the show. Worries they might turn into a jukebox act churning out their hits didn’t stop the Boys polling their fans for the set-list, so ignoring Sunflower, Surf’s Up and Carl & The Passions. So it’s good vibrations all the way and the last chance so far to catch Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson in their mythical endless summer. Very easy listening.
