    Classic Beach Boys Broadcast Recording Of A Show Hailed As Being Among Their Best Ever  By 1974, due in part to the shrewd organisational skills of new-boys Ricky Fataar and Blondie Chaplin alongside those of BB evergreen Mike Love, the success of two Greatest Hits albums and the mega-selling 1973 In Concert album, The Beach Boys were being dubbed one of the best American live acts around, even rivalling the likes of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young for ticket sales. The bandís renewed, positive profile was summed up best by Rolling Stone, who named them their Band Of The Year.  The Beach Boys performed 100-plus shows across North America in 1974, and on 14th June they packed out the 14,500-capacity Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, NY, performing what is now hailed as one of the groupís finest ever shows. The subject of a live FM radio broadcast transmitted across the United States, the group played an extraordinary setlist featuring cuts from across their career, including the best tracks from their more recent albums like Holland, Carl And The Passions and Surfís Up alongside their better known 1960s hits, giving this concert an eclectic edge, a dynamic feel, and a delightful ambience.  TRACKLIST 1.
