More Info:The group's first two LPs were compiled together and upgraded in March of 2001. They hold up remarkably well 40 years later. 'Surfin' Safari' was recorded in such a rush after the title track became a hit but there's some very good music here beyond 'Surfin' Safari,' '409,' and 'Surfin': the lost surf hit 'Chug-a-Lug'; the doo wop-style 'Little Miss America '. 'Surfin' U.S.A.' was done with a little more time and more control. From the opening title cut, the album never let's up - 'Farmer's Daughter' is a gorgeous surf tune with a killer lead falsetto by Brian; 'Miserlou,' 'Stoked,' 'Honky Tonk,' 'Surf Jam,' and 'Let's Go Trippin' were brilliant instrumentals showing o- the group's virtuosity.
''Surfin' USA'' is the second album released by The Beach Boys and was released in early 1963. This was the group's second album to be credited with production from Capitol's Nick Venet, Capitol Records' representative for Artists and Repertoire.
''Surfin' USA'' (Capitol (S) T 1890) reached #2 in the US, lasting 78 weeks on the albums chart. It reached #17 in the UK in late 1965. ''Surfin' USA'' is now paired on CD with ''Surfin' Safari'', with bonus tracks from that period. - Wikipedia
