    The mastering on this release of Friends blows me away every time I hear it. So much depth and clarity.

      This and the Wild Honey & 20/20 set are my fave period Beach Boys. The covers speak to me of fun, youth and good times. The music does the same. Enjoy !

        Man, these two albums work so well as a double album, but these cars-n-girls-n-surfin covers on this one and the Wild Honey & 2020 set are so out of place.
