Various Artists: Beach Music Anthology, Vol.2

[cover art]

'99 compilation with The Band's "Remedy" from Jericho included. Beach music?

A four-CD, 80-track "beach-music anthology" with not a hint of Jan and Dean or the Beach Boys? The official explanation is that this is beach music from the other coast, specifically from the Carolinas. But like the first volume in this series, the collection's definition of Southern beach music is loose, to put it mildly. It appears that any R&B-spiced rock that got played on Carolina beaches from the mid-'50s to the mid-'90s, no matter where it came from or what it was about, was fair game; one suspects a more honest title for this package would be 90 Songs the Label Could License Rights To. The Beach Music Anthology Vol. 2 holds together well musically, and the collection includes quite a few national hits and regional obscurities that are difficult or impossible to find elsewhere. There aren't nearly as many hits as on the first anthology, but the quality is still rather consistently good, although perhaps a cut below Vol. 1. This may not all be what you'd call "beach music"; it may not even contain much of what you would call beach music. Still, you could do a heck of a lot worse for a soundtrack for your next beach party.
