Do it again  performed by  Ronnie Aldrich  (1969)
Composed by Brian Wilson
Arranged by Tony D'Amato
From: UK
Mood: fun
Recommended by delicado [profile] on Tuesday 25th September 2001

This is pure fun, a track with that 'easy cheesy' sound which many people love to hate. But wait, this is brilliant! Although rather clunky and an extremely 'square' take on 'hip', this is quite magnificent, honestly. Backed by a relentless beat, Ronnie plays the tune on 2 pianos, while for the bridge section the superb harmonies in the Beach Boys original are played out beautifully by the London Festival Orchestra. Although it's something of a guilty pleasure, I have to recommend this track very highly. Listening to it now on headphones, I notice that it even has that stereo effect having each piano come out of a different channel, an effect used to great effect on his version of 'soulful strut'.

from This Way (London/Phase 4 SP 44116)

Other Versions: The Beach Boys original is really great, with a super cool drum intro which I believe was sampled by Air for the song 'remember'. If not, they imitated it pretty well.
