Review

Review Text Ocean Boulevard, Vol. 3: The Capitol-EMI Masters has it over many other Beach music collections due to the fact that it consists of original recordings of classics by Freda Payne, the O'Jays, Jerry Butler, and loads more all drawn from the archives of Capitol and EMI. Beach music is notable for its emphasis on up-tempo grooves and breezy sentiments -- soul music for dancing with sand in your shoes -- and the songs here certainly fall into that category, with sunshiney pop-soul hits from Brenton Wood ("Gimme Little Sign"), the Chairmen of the Board ("You've Got Me Dangling on a String"), and Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose ("Too Late to Turn Back Now"), happy early-'60s R&B tracks like Marvin & Johnny's "Cherry Pie" and the Fiestas' "So Fine," as well as some smooth '70s disco-soul from the Futures ("Party Time Man") and Hot Chocolate ("It Started with a Kiss"). All together the disc plays like a history of classic Beach music, perhaps not the history, but a very entertaining version of it and it is well worth tracking down, especially if you have been burned by Beach comps made up of modern tracks and re-recordings. ~ Tim Sendra
