Beach Boys Book…By The Beach Boys (2024 Update)

Another really expensive book by another classic band!  As the story circulated today about a new Beach Boys book, the one thing that was left out was the price.  I went to the publisher’s (Genesis) site, and the price was 945-pounds.  So, I Googled what that is in dollars, and it’s 1,238-dollars for pre-orders.

If you order one of the approximately 400 copies of the deluxe edition, you’ll get the book and a box to put it in.  But wait, there’s good news for the rest of us.  A “bookstore version” is set for release in 2024.  Hopefully, it will be reasonably priced.

Update:  The cheaper “bookstore version” was released on April 2nd, 2024 (There’s a review on this site with extra photos).  The list price is $65.  Here’s the new cover:

A Beach Boys documentary will also be released.  It’s on Disney+ starting May 24th, 2024.

Genesis gave us some good examples of what the book contains, and it’s the same as the bookstore version.  You can click to enlarge.

The text includes comments from over 60-years by all of The Beach Boys.  They tell their story along with the historic photos.  Here are some samples of photos of the group.

The Beach Boys are the most iconic American band of the 1960s, with most of their classic recordings made from 1962 through about 1973.  While we wait for that “bookstore version”, wouldn’t it be nice to listen to The Beach Boys, and have some fun fun fun as we’re picking up those good vibrations.
