This celebration of Beach Boys guiding light Brian Wilson, recorded in March 2001 at New York's Radio City Music Hall, may be the best tribute concert ever. Wilson himself appears toward the end of the 90-minute show; he's game, but after decades of mental problems, he's not what he once was. It's his admirers who take the event to another level. Backed by the remarkable Wondermints, a diverse lineup (Ricky Martin, the Go-Go's, Billy Joel, Aimee Mann and Michael Penn, Wilson Phillips--with Brian's two daughters--and others) perform both obvious ("California Girls") and more obscure ("I Just Wasn't Made for These Times") Wilson material. And then there are Elton John ("God Only Knows"), Vince Gill ("The Warmth of the Sun"), Paul Simon ("Surfer Girl"), Heart's Wilson sisters ("Good Vibrations"), and Carly Simon, David Crosby, and songwriter Jimmy Webb ("In My Room"), who turn in performances that are, quite simply, among the greatest of their careers. Transcendent. --Sam Graham
