DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Re: Our favorite Jan & Dean songs
« on: April 16, 2018, 04:35:33 PM »
Hi,

I agree with Summer Means Fun, and I also agree that the vocals on the Legendary Masked Surfers' version are better than the original J&D version.

I have always liked As Easy As 1-2-3. Jill Gibson's vocals are perfect.

My favourite should-have-been-a-single song is 3 Window Coupe - which should have been a single  ;D I just love the vocal fadeout on that.

I find myself going back to Like A Summer Rain a lot - especially the version from Silver Summer. I know many people disparage that album for falsely masquerading as a J&D effort but, for me, Mike Love's suggestion that Dean re-record Like A Summer Rain makes it almost all worthwhile.

From the earlier songs I would pick Gas Money and Bucket-T.

Cheers
Owen

Great stuff!  3 Window Coupe is a great version.  Better than the Rip Chords version but both versions are great.

My favorite period is when they were working with Sloan and Barri (The Fantastic Baggys).  I never figured out why Jan and Dean never bothered to add their vocals to "Move Out Little Mustang".

Nice designs.  My favorite are the 2 Turtles hits collections.
