  • Shut Down Volume 2

    1963 was a busy year for the Beach Boys, but 1964 was even busier. Shut Down, Volume 2 is the first of four albums the band would release that year. Though marketed as a hot-rod album (and featuring Dennis Wilson’s blue Corvette Sting Ray and Carl Wilson’s Pontiac Grand Prix on the cover), this isn’t the concept album of Little Deuce Coupe. It features the single “Fun, Fun, Fun” and some of the strongest moments in Beach Boys history: the brilliantly lush “Don’t Worry Baby” (Brian Wilson’s response to Phil Spector’s “Be My Baby”), the melodic ballad “The Warmth of the Sun,” and one of the band’s best covers, “Why Do Fools Fall in Love.” There is also a humorous mock argument between Brian and Mike Love, “‘Cassius’ Love Vs. ‘Sonny’ Wilson,” a cover of “Louie Louie,” and Carl’s first song on lead vocals, “Pom Pom Play Girl.”
