As I remember
27 June 2007 | by tatrueSee all my reviews

I remember this show during the Summer of 1976, the year of our Bicentennial. As I recall it was a mostly concert and documentary style movie much in the style of how "This is Spinal Tap" would be come to be know as. Except, of course, for the fact that this is a real band and I was surprised to learn that is was written by Belushi and Akroyd. I do recall thinking this was the first time that I actually enjoyed hearing The Beach Boys music.

After this special there was the Jan and Dean special and several music related movies and specials including the "Elvis" movie with Kirk Russell.

Are there any other details that anyone else knows about this special?
