Brian Wilson’s new album, Lucky Old Sun, is reportedly his return to ‘60s form after getting the Smile gorilla off his back, and that notion is hard to debate with the harmonious swirls that envelop most of the album’s tracks.
Wilson recently did some appearances in England, and while there he filmed this Black Cab Session, where he and four bandmates do the album’s title track mostly a capella (one band member has a small keyboard). When the band finish the song, they still have three minutes left on their cab ride, so they launch in to “California Girls.”
