The album that followed, 15 Big Ones, balanced covers of rock and doo wop standards with seven new Beach Boys songs including five Brian Wilson compositions. Most of the covers are mistakes, part of a misguided attempt by the aging Beach Boys to recapture the energy of their youth. The contemporary production techniques and overly polished sound do nothing for these oldies, and effectively sap them of any energy they might once have had. 5 Big Ones is the 20th studio album by American rock group The Beach Boys released in July 1976. With Blondie Chaplin and Ricky Fataar having left the Beach Boys following their preceding album Holland 1973, 15 Big Ones was recorded at a time when the group was struggling with their creative direction. 15 Big Ones Q.
