Original Beach Boys ‘SMiLE’ Sessions Out In October

The sessions for the never-completed SMiLE album by The Beach Boys will be released in October.

Capitol Records have collected and compiled the sessions from 1966 and ’67 for the legendary ‘lost’ Beach Boys album SMiLE.

The Beach Boys went in to record the follow-up to their masterful Pet Sounds album in 1966. The master-tapes were shelved and SMiLE went down in history as the most mythical unreleased pop album ever.

The SMiLE Session is drawn from those original masters, with the blessing of original Beach Boys Al Jardine, Mike Love and Brian Wilson.

It’ll be released in many formats: a double-CD lift-top box, double vinyl, digital album and as an iTunes LP.

There will also be multiple limited edition packs, featuring a massive five-disc/two album/two 7-inch box set, and others with t-shirts, autographed lithographs, and even one which has a custom-made surfboard.

The assembled SMiLE album features 19 tracks, with another eight bonus tracks. And the second disc features thirteen cuts of alternate takes, highlights, demos and unheard parts.

The five-disc set has a mammoth 139 tracks.

It’s a landmark of pop history, and the various editions will be released on October 28.

Check out all the packs at TheBeachBoys.com.
