Beach Boys To Release Their Lost Masterpiece, Smile
The album, which was intended to be the follow-up to the group's magnum opus, Pet Sounds, was scuttled in late 1966 for a variety of reasons and has never been released to the public in its entirety.
In 2004, Brian Wilson rerecorded the material as Brian Wilson Presents Smile, winning three Grammy nominations for his efforts. But until now, The Beach Boys' version has remained on the shelf. Jardine, though, says that is all about to change. "Capitol Records plans to issue a Beach Boys version of Smile sometime this summer to begin the celebration of The Beach Boys' anniversary," he said. "Smile is the Holy Grail for Beach Boys' fans, so it will be good." more on this story
