Save For A Rainy Day

20 08 2008

Since it has been pouring rain all day long, I put on the much ignored Jan & Dean LP, “Save For A Rainy Day.”jd This album is a little gem that was recorded when Jan was out of the picture due to Dead Man’s Curve.  Dean used members of the “wrecking crew” to get it recorded.  It is his “Pet Sounds” moment, although the LP is not nearly as good.  It is certainly not the Jan & Dean sound that you might be thinking of like, “Surf City” (penned by Brian Wilson) or “Little Old Lady From Pasadena.”  These songs, which are all bridged together with rain sounds, are like lo-fi nursery rhymes for groovy sixties people.  You can read more and take a listen over here.

Oh, but for the car wrecks, shortage of talent and mediocre appearances, Jan and Dean could have been the Beach Boys.
