Rio Grande by Brian Wilson

Album: Brian WilsonReleased: 1988
  • This majestic, panoramic 8-minute suite with multiple parts stitched together was an attempt by Brian Wilson to return to the miniature conceptual pieces he was writing in the Smile era. It compares to "Heroes And Villains" and has a similar Wild West theme. Brian Wilson has said he had a particular love of Western movies and they were a great inspiration for all the band.
  • This was recorded at several different studios all over Los Angeles. They took the tape around from studio to studio and dubbed on different things. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for above 2)
  • The Rio Grande is a river that borders Texas and Mexico.
