Beach Boys Documentary to be Released on DVD and Blu-ray
A documentary celebrating the Beach Boys‘ 50th anniversary will soon be available. ‘The Beach Boys: Doin’ it Again’ will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on Aug. 28.
The 60-minute documentary, which has already aired on PBS stations across the country, finds Brian Wilson, Bruce Johnston, Al Jardine, David Marks and Mike Love talking about their incredible history.
The interviews are interspersed with archival footage, performances from their current world tour and a behind-the-scenes look at the recording of their new hit album, ‘That’s Why God Made the Radio.’
The DVD also includes tributes to former members Dennis and Carl Wilson, who passed away in 1983 and 1998, respectively.
The icing on the cake, which will be of particular interest to Brian Wilson obsessives, is the inclusion of never-before-seen clips of the band recording their classic ‘Good Vibrations.’ The trailer embedded below gives a taste of what is included in the video.
Of course, this is an official release, so don’t expect to see anything about the myriad arguments and lawsuits that splintered the band for years and made it seem like the current reunion would never happen.
After all, this isn’t meant to be a complete history of the band, which has been written many times over. Instead, it’s designed to remind their fans of the brilliant music they’ve made over the past 50 years.
