Carl Dean Wilson left us on February 6th, 1998. It's hard to believe it was already 10 years ago. I wasn't even that much of a Beach Boys fan at that time (I was 10 and only knew the hits), and I didn't know who he was. But now I know he was a wonderful person who struggled all his life to be a peacemaker while staying "professional". A hard task when you're a member of the Beach Boys...
I thought today was the right day to post his two solo albums: Carl Wilson (1981) and Youngblood (1983). These are unfortunately out of print nowadays, but I hope they'll be reissued soon. For the time being, enjoy those two! There are a few good "rockers" of course, but also a couple of heartfelt and beautiful songs such as Heaven or If I Could Talk To Love. "The heart and voice of an angel..."

P.S. Watch out for more reuploads - for instance, I've just reuploaded SOT Vol.17, but keep checking the links on the right side under "available stuff", as I won't post a new message each time I reupload something! ;)
