Van Dyke Parks speaks at a tribute to Brian Wilson
His name may not be familiar, but for the last 40 years, Van Dyke Parks has been a music visionary. Besides his own solo work, he's produced a lot of artists -- including Randy Newman and Ry Cooder. In 1995, Van Dyke Parks collaborated with his old friend Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys for the album "Orange Crate Art" -- a collection of songs about California. He talked with us about that title track.
