That’s a great description of Bruce Johnston’s voice. Brian wrote the “wish they all could be California Girls” countermelody at the end just for Bruce, and it really worked. Same with that echo to Carl’s lead at the end of “God Only Knows.”
Ever hear the song “Endless Harmony?”
Yes, those are two amazing musical moments you just described! I’ve never heard Endless Harmony....is that on a 70’s Beach Boys album like Holland or something?
