Originally released in 1966, POPSICLE finds Jan & Dean still pursuing the perfect wave, with songs like "The Restless Surfer" and "A Surfer's Dream," while also acknowledging the pop revolution occurring around them with a cover of the Beatles' "Norwegian Wood." But the surfing icons' endless summer was rapidly drawing to a close--the release of their contemporaries the Beach Boys' classic, innovative PET SOUNDS album and Jan Berry's near-fatal car accident meant the duo's hits with jokey surfer anthems like "One Piece Topless Bathing Suit" would soon go the way of Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon beach movies.
