When Jan Berry was injured in a terrible auto accident in 1966, partner Dean Torrence did his best to keep the duos name alive. Though released under the Jan & Dean moniker, Save for a Rainy Day was solely Torrences creation. A concept album featuring songs about rain with sound effects of a thunderstorm linking the tracks, it was an adventurous departure from the duos past work. Much of the album was recorded in the garage of Torrences 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 Wilsons 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 Balloons single became a Top30 hit, Torrences 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 albums running time. Furthermore, it pulls back the curtain on the creative process, affording the listener an unprecedented look inside the albums 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 Torrences panoramic musical vision. Also available on LP!
