The LP was named for being their 20th overall album release. Much of it consists of outtakes from earlier albums.
NOTE: Although The Beach Boys' reputation was built as a singles act, it was through listening to their albums that I really grew to love them. The depth of their albums, starting with Surfer Girl on, began to be filled with not only the familiar hit singles, but increasingly challenging album cuts and production touches that made them the envy of their contemporaries.
THE BEACH BOYS - ADULT/CHILD Unreleased album planned for Fall 1977 Adult/Child is an unreleased studio album by American rock band the Beach Boys, intended. to follow the group's 1977 Love You. Like Love You, it is virtually a Brian Wilson solo project with other group members serving mainly as additional vocalists. Amid its status as an esoteric non-release within the Beach Boys catalog, the album has developed a mild cult following among fans and musicians. Brian composes, writes, and sings most of Adult Child with occasionally brothers/bandmates Carl and Dennis swapping lead vocals. The album's lyrics mostly reflect the minutiae of Brian's life during the 1970s. Some songs center around physical fitness, eating healthy, and ecology.
The Beach Boys, ‘Adult/Child’ (1977). After being sidelined for the first half of the seventies by metal illness and drug addiction, Brian Wilson was prodded out of hibernation in 1976 to resume his role as the Beach Boys' producer and resident genius. The resulting albums, 15 Big Ones (1976) and Love You (1977), weren't stellar, but the sessions reestablished his confidence. Wilson threw himself into his next project with a creative fervor rarely seen since his unfinished Smile sessions a decade earlier
