Brian Wilson And Al Jardine To Tour Beach Boys Christmas Album

Beach Boys founders Brian Wilson and Al Jardine will tour the classic 1964 Beach Boys Christmas album at the end of the year.

‘Brian Wilson Presents: The Christmas Album Live’ will start in Minneapolis on November 28 and finished in Los Angeles on December 20.

The Beach Boys Christmas album was the seventh Beach Boys album. It featured Christmas classics like ‘Frosty The Snowman’ and ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ as well as new original music like ‘Little Saint Nick’, written by Wilson.

Wilson recorded the album as a response to Phil Spector’s ‘A Christmas Gift From Philles Records’ released in the previous year. Brian was a piano player on the Spector album.

‘The Beach Boys’ Christmas Album’ was recorded between Jun 18 and 30, 1964 except for ‘Little Saint Nick’, recorded on October 20, 1963.

The Beach Boys recorded a second Christmas album ‘Merry Christmas From The Beach Boys’ in 1977 but it wasn’t released at the time. Instead, all of the songs from the sessions were included on the 988 ‘Ultimate Christmas’ release, a collection compiling both the 1964 album and the 1977 sessions.
