Don’t Fight the Sea

Jardine releases the song Don’t Fight the Sea on his album A Postcard from California, which includes songs from many of the surviving Beach Boys. The song is written by Terry Jacks and meant to promote environmental awareness.

Electronic keyboards began to develop a little keyboard called a DX-7 and that was a fascinating little thing. We just thought that was an absolute miracle of technology. In fact, on my latest album, we use a DX-7 on my song Don’t Fight the Sea. I like this particular setting called a “wood block.”
