Comments
During the late fall of 1978, Mike made his first attempt at a solo career by recording two albums simultaneously, each with a different producer: First Love and Country Love. First Love, with some vocal assistance from Carl Wilson, is the better of the two.

Country Love is one of the most reviled unissued albums of all time and is almost always considered the worst of all the Beach Boys solo albums. Country Love was produced in Oct. - Nov. 1978. The producer was the renowned pedal steel guitarist Al Perkins.

The Country Love album was filed with the U.S. Copyright Office in May 1979. The official song lineup and author credits posted here are from this filing.

Review by: dumanglOn 27 Jul 2007 at 18:00 CEST
Although Country Love may possibly be the worst of The Beach Boys solo albums, it's not anywhere near as bad as it's reputation. It's actually listenable. "Wrinkles", the most infamous song in the entire Beach Boys canon is really sort of sweet, although quite maudlin. Mike’s voice is pretty good on Country Love, not as nasal as he is on Looking Back With Love. The backup singers and musicians are pretty good too.

I think the highlights are:
Brand New Start (nice lyrics and a lovely production)
Baby I'm A Changed Man (country rock with a nice beat)
Everything I Touch Has Turned To Tears
My Side Of The Bed
Everyone's In Love With You (absolutely lovely, more sparingly produced than The Beach Boys version)
Some Sweet Day (beautiful, not to be confused with the entirely different 1995 song by B. Wilson & A. Paley)

The audio quality varies from fair to poor for a studio recording. It's obviously not from the master tapes, perhaps worn acetates.
