Review

Review Text Beach Blast: Shag & Blues Compilation, Vol. 1 compiles 17 tracks of modern-day beach music favorites. Beach music started in the '60s with the laid-back pop-soul sound of groups like the Chairmen of the Board and smooth soul men like Brenton Wood. The scene is still going strong today, and encompasses blues artists as well as soul sounds. This disc is split between blues and soul, with many old-school soul names popping up, such as Clarence Carter, William Bell, and Tyrone Davis. None of them sound all that great, however, and that is what sinks the record. Why listen to the shadows of these great singers when you can track down the original work fairly easily? The blues artists featured are all bland and lifeless. Anyone hearing beach music for the first time on this disc would be left wondering what all the fuss is about. ~ Tim Sendra
