    This remake by the original group was released during an especially bleak period for the Beach Boys. “Here Comes the Night” was originally on their 1967 Album, Wild Honey (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qjz_P3ey2Oc). It grew by eight minutes and a trillion string runs when they redid as a disco single in 1979 (with kitschily idiotic results – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73c6-cuObGc).

    I’ve written songs with so many iconic artists who panic when they stop having hits and then let some record company talk them into doing dumb things like this to try and hop on a trend that’s so incongruous with what that artist or group does best. It does, however, lead to Kitsch monuments like “Here Comes the Night” ’79, a gross misuse of both the Beach Boys and Disco.

    This is disc is a true audio insult of awfulness. It’s an abuse of expectations. I think one of the few times I’ve been more disappointed by a record was The Ventures “Walk Don’t Run ’77” and even that wasn’t as bad as this, it’s just more of a fall from the original.
