Bamboo - Unreleased
Planned as the follow up to the magnificent Pacific Ocean Blue, this second and final Dennis Wilson LP has remained unreleased since his death in 1983. While the majority of the songs here were never finished, Wilson's ambition to make this record more stylistically diverse than its predecessor is still evident. Check out the southern horns and lap steel on the instrumental "New Orleans", or the funky percussion on "Companion". Yet, much like Pacific Ocean Blue this is an aural record of a man losing his grip and falling apart -- which is, oddly, what makes it so appealing. Since the album was never completed, the tracklisting has remained unknown, though the folks over at Dennis Wilson Dreamer have a wealth of information about this album, so be sure to pay them a visit.
