1964 Album Features "I Get Around!"
All Summer Long is the sixth studio album by The Beach Boys and their second in 1964. It rose to number four in the US during a forty-nine week chart stay, and was certified gold by the RIAA. "I Get Around" preceded the album's release by some two months and quickly raced to become their first number one single in the US; they also had a UK Top 10 debut with a number seven peak.
The album's sessions were recorded in the aftermath of the British Invasion, marking a major turning point in the Beach Boys' career, and in bandleader/primary songwriter Brian Wilson as an artist. All Summer Long was to be their final album which reveled in California beach culture.
"All Summer Long was notable not only for racheting up the Beach Boys' standards and essentially bidding farewell to the surf songs that inspired both their name and reputation, but also for going toe-to-toe with one of rock's most explosive phenomena Beatlemania and coming away victorious, with the single 'I Get Around' soaring to No. 1 in the spring of 1964. Essentially another loose concept record (revolving around the innocent hedonistic pursuits of an idyllic SoCal summer) that takes its cue from the effervescent title track, it also documents Brian's restless creativity pushing the band toward its performing peak." -Amazon.com
SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.
