Beach Boys Special
3 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Greetings, I was looking though what the Beach Boys have on DVD's. And I was wondering why what I thought was their best video show was not on DVD. The video show was on NBC television in 1976. On that BB television special was John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd playing California highway patrolman, they arrested Brian Wilson, and made him go surfing. A person known as the "Human Fly", a guy they strapped onto the back of a 707 jet, and took off, with the BB's tune "I get Around" playing in the background. There were interview's with some of their school teacher's. It was a great Beach Boys Show. I would love to see that Beach Boy Show on DVD, and I bet a lot of other people would like to see that on DVD too.
