Brian Wilson ist erstmalig auf Fairport Convention' s Cropredy Festival vertreten und präsentiert Pet Sounds:Brian Wilson to headline Thursday Night!
Fairport's Cropredy Convention 2018 is proud to announce that headlining our festival this year, we welcome the legendary Brian Wilson.
A Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee and recipient of the Ivor Novello Award for Lifetime Achievement, Brian Wilson is one of popular music's most revered figures, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history.
In 1966 Brian produced three landmark records, recordings that changed the course of popular music.
The first was Pet Sounds. Universally acclaimed for its ambition and sophistication, Pet Sounds is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential albums of all time. Primarily working with a new collaborator, lyricist and songwriter Tony Asher, Wilson produced a masterpiece that still stands at number 2 in the Rolling Stone '500 Greatest Albums of All Time' list, only beaten to the top spot by The Beatles' Sgt Pepper.
Pet Sounds featured four hit singles; a reworking of the folk standard Sloop John B, Wouldn’t It Be Nice, Caroline No and God Only Knows. The latter was released as a solo single under Brian’s name and is considered by many (including Paul McCartney) as one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded.
And the best news is that Brian (with special guests Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin) will be continuing the 50th anniversary celebrations by playing Pet Sounds in its entirety, along with rare cuts and greatest hits for us at Cropredy on 9 August!!*** Der Link ist nur für Mitglieder sichtbar, zum Login. ***
