Books: Southern California Pastoral (1976)

The Beach Boys: Southern California Pastoral (Bruce Golden) Borgo Press, 1976. More a booklet than a book at 39 pages (plus discography), this is the first attempt at analysis of their albums up to this point. Surprisingly, the brilliant Sunflower gets short shrift.
