Liner Note Author: Steve Kolanjian.
Jan & Dean are the quintessential Californian pop duo of the early 1960s; versed in surfing and hot-rod culture, they created music that provided a soundtrack for summertime fun. ALL THE HITS - FROM SURF CITY TO DRAG CITY lives up to its name, including Jan & Dean's numerous charting singles, as well as some rare outtakes and radio spots. These songs are breezy, lightweight, and well produced, and provide a nice setting for studio professionals such as Hal Blaine and Glen Campbell to work their magic. The sonic complexity of Jan Berry's productions was a serious influence on the young Brian Wilson, and one can easily follow the progression of '60s rock from "Dead Man's Curve" to the Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations." As such, Jan & Dean are more influential than many people realize, and one can only wonder of what might have been had Berry not gotten involved in a near-fatal auto accident that ended the group's career in 1966.
