Sailing Away Cotton Men's T-Shirt
The Beach Boys had a knack for capturing the golden essence of summertime in a way that made you feel like you were cruising along the California coastline.
Summer Days (And Summer Nights) is The Beach Boys sun-soaked 9th studio album that captured the golden essence of summer time in a way that made you feel like you were cruising along the California coastline. The album cover shot was taken on a sail boat trip out to Santa Catalina Island in the late spring of 1965. The album was released in July of 1965 and featured the band’s second number one hit "Help Me Rhonda" and pop culture staple “California Girls.” But Summer Days isn’t all fun and games. Tracks like "Let Him Run Wild" and "You're So Good to Me" reveal a deeper emotional complexity lurking beneath those sun-kissed melodies. Brian Wilson was beginning to explore new territories, both musically and lyrically, setting the stage for future masterpieces like Pet Sounds.
