Wilson Phillips - Dedicated

by Kevin Wierzbicki

Clever cross-marketing has the release of Dedicated coinciding with the airing of new episodes of the girls' TV Guide Network reality show Still Holding On but really the timing is not that critical considering that the songs included here are timeless. The trio has an incredible rock lineage; Wendy and Carnie Wilson are the daughters of Beach Boy Brian Wilson while Chynna Phillips is the offspring of John and Michelle Phillips of the Mamas & the Papas and here they put their dulcet tones to work on a selection of hits their parent's groups had, mostly mellow tunes like "California Dreamin'," "I Can Hear Music," "God Only Knows" and "Monday Monday" although they include a take on the buzzy "Good Vibrations" too. Wilson Phillips aren't trying to build a better mouse trap here; their parents created the quintessential California sound with this music but the girls don't have any such burden of genius upon them. They're just having fun interpreting some of the most enduring pop songs ever written.
