Following Sexy Intellectual's previous film about Brian Wilson's magnificent craft; 'Songwriter:1962-1969', comes this companion piece covering the maverick composer's life and work throughout the 1970s. While this latter part of his career is rarely championed with the same kind of enthusiasm that greets his 1960s productions, it remains an essential part of Brian's story and contains many, many moments of glory which compare favourably to those which litter the era generally considered his heyday.
Features Include: - Historical musical performances and rare and classic recordings re-assessed by a panel of esteemed experts.
- Obscure footage, rare archive interviews and seldom seen photographs.
- Contributions from Beach Boys manager, Fred Vail; Brian's sometime co-producer, David Sandler; his close friend, Mark Volman (The Turtles / Flo and Eddie); Brother Records Studio engineers, Earl Mankey and Stephen Desper; Wilson collaborator Stephen Kalinich; Three Dog Night's Danny Hutton, plus Beach Boy Bruce Johnston and the Wrecking Crew's Hal Blaine.
- Live and studio recordings of many Brian Wilson classics and obscurities.
- Review, criticism and comment from biographers and writers, Peter Ames Carlin, Domenic Priore, Professor Philip Lambert and Barney Hoskyns.
