Jan & Dean: Save For A Rainy Day (CD)

When Jan Berry was injured in a terrible auto accident in 1966, partner Dean Torrence did his best to keep the duo’s name alive. Though released under the Jan & Dean moniker, Save for a Rainy Day was solely Torrence’s creation. A concept album featuring songs about rain with sound effects of a thunderstorm linking the tracks, it was an adventurous departure from the duo’s past work. Much of the album was recorded in the garage of Torrence’s neighbor, bassist Joe Osbourne. Osbourne enlisted fellow “Wrecking Crew” regulars Larry Knetchel and James Burton to help him build the basic tracks. Together with Torrence, they crafted a modern California soundscape, very much a mirror of their friend Brian Wilson’s evolution from surf music to more sophisticated pop. 

Columbia Records released one single from the album, “Yellow Balloon.” Written by Gary Zekley, Zekley also released a version of the song under the band name Yellow Balloon, using the same backing tracks as the Torrence version. While Yellow Balloon’s single became a Top30 hit, Torrence’s version faded into obscurity. Columbia subsequently declined to release the album, leaving Torrence to issue it himself on the J&D Record Company label. 

Belatedly hailed as a classic sunshine pop album, this Sundazed edition features a ton of bonus tracks. Made up of alternate takes, different mixes and instrumental renditions, it more than doubles the original album’s running time. Furthermore, it pulls back the curtain on the creative process, affording the listener an unprecedented look inside the album’s development. While Berry would eventually battle his way back from debilitating injuries to rejoin his partner, Save for a Rainy Day remains a shimmering tribute to Dean Torrence’s panoramic musical vision.

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Jan & Dean"

Jan & Dean

Think of 1960s 'surfer' music and two groups immediately come to mind: The Beach Boys and Jan & Dean. Jan Berry was half of the duo and sang lead on The Beach Boys' 1966 hit Barbara Ann.

Jan Berry was born in Los Angeles on April 3, 1941. In high school he met Arnie Ginsburg and Dean Torrance. The trio formed a musical group, The Barons, and Berry and Ginsburg began writing songs. In 1958, Jennie Lee, an ode to an LA stripper, was recorded in Jan's garage. Credited to Jan & Arnie, it became a hit, reaching #8 on the Pop Chart. One more Jan & Arnie side followed before the Jan & Dean line-up rolled up 24 chart singles. Their hits ended in 1966, a few months after Jan was left in a coma after wrecking his car speeding through Dead Man's Curve.

What inspired Berry and co-writer Jill Gibson to respond to Buffy Sainte-Marie's anti-war anthem, Universal Soldier, is unclear. Both the Donovan and Glen Campbell versions of the song were on the charts in fall '65, but neither sparked the kind of controversy that Eve Of Destruction did. When he co-wrote The Universal Coward, Jan had no direct stake in the Vietnam War. He had no military background, unlike Dean, who had done an Army Reserve stint. So it's interesting that Dean was sufficiently put off by the lyrics of Coward… that he did not want his name on the label. 

Jan & Dean made a comeback in the late '70s on the back of the made-for-TV biopic 'Dead Man's Curve.' While there were no new records produced, the duo performed their hits on the 'oldies' circuit.

Jan Berry died of a seizure on March 26, 2004
