About this album

Summer in Paradise is the twenty-seventh studio album by American rock band The Beach Boys. Produced by Terry Melcher, the album is the band’s last of original material to feature lead guitarist and vocalist Carl Wilson, who died in 1998, which resulted in the effective split of the band until the surviving members reunited in 2012 for a 50th anniversary tour and new studio album.

The album was left out of Capitol’s Beach Boys re-issue campaign in 2000 and 2001, and is currently out of print.

    Sure this is the worst Beach Boys album and I hate the title track and the cover version of Under the Boardwalk. But even the worst Beach Boys album has its moments. Some of the songs are quite entertaining. I think that the (otherwise fantastic) 50th anniversary tour should have featured a song from this album. After all this was the last Beach Boys album for 20 years so it has some historical significance.

    Still Surfin', Strange Things Happen, Lahaina Aloha and the title track with Roger McGuinn are fantastic. I like this album actually. The hate seems to be massively disproportional to what is really just an overproduced MOR early 90s record. I can name many albums I consider to be worse.

    An abomination too unholy to put into words. Mike Love should be forced to eat several mountains of dicks, glass, and sulfur, and be forced to experience being eaten as well, like in that movie, Strange Days.

    if you are looking for the john stamos version of forever, don't bother downloading from here. it will take you to 7digital and then you will (unknowingly) download the beach boys version from Sunflower/Surf's Up. Disappointing!

    I actually like this album, it's got Baywatch soundtrack written all over it.

    I've actually come to like Lahaina Aloha a little...that song and some of the covers would be great with better production... Can't say the same for Summer of Love, unfortunately!!

    I hope there will be a rerelease of this album, because honestly, I'm curious to hear this one.

    I just listened to this album for the first time, I wish I hadn't heard it at all. The Full House crowd may like it for John Stamos' butchering of Forever, but I will never recommend it to anyone.

    That means you had to listen to this record more than poor, poor soul.
