MP3 OF THE WEEK: The First Class – Beach Baby mp3

“I never thought that it would end, and I was everybody’s friend, long hot days, cool sea haze, Jukebox plays, but now it’s fading away”

I’ve been hearing this track on the radio allot where I work and I’ve totally fallen in love with it. ‘Beach Baby’ has a sweeping, rich, Beach Boys production (With a hint of Simon & Garfunkel) but it’s when everything else drops out and the horns come in for the instrumental brake at 3.05, that it really gives me the goose bumps. It’s like the whole reason for Jason Pierce’s existence. This 1974 single was apparently The First Class’ only hit but I’ll definitely have to check out the rest of their discography.
