The Beach Boys / Feel Flows CD, Vinyl
Capitol Records/Universal Music explore The Beach Boys‘ 1969-1971 period with a new archive release called Feel Flows – The Sunflower and Surf’s Up Sessions 1969-1971. Good luck snagging the five-CD set which is proving elusive, thanks to what appears to be a minuscule number produced and made available for distribution. Hey, it’s ONLY The Beach Boys after all…

The Hawks / Obviously 5 Believers
For Stephen Duffy, The Hawks came between Duran Duran and TinTin. This Birmingham five-piece burned brightly for a very short period although released hardly any music. In 2019 Duffy met band guitarist Dave Kusworth and promised to issue the songs that had been languishing in his archive for nigh on 40 years. Kusworth sadly didn’t live to see this day, but the album that never was is finally remastered and issued in Kusworth’s memory.
