"Heroes And Vibrations" is a taster for future
"Smile" riches to come from the good folks at Vigotone. We're still in the
process of assembling the best possible package one could hope for from these legendary
sessions, but with public outcry for the release of this set at a fever pitch, we've
decided to unleash a few goodies to give you an idea of what's to come...and we think
you'll be quite pleased with what you hear!
The excerpts included here are obviously, given our title, from the myriad
rehearsals and sessions that produced the best-known and representative tracks from the
"Smile Era", "Good Vibrations" and "Heroes And Villains".
As with most of the tapes from this period, many of the tracks featured here are
fragmentary and have been difficult listening on previous, lesser quality releases.
Here the material appears in stellar sound quality. Most items are in full stereo,
both on tracks that have only been available before in mono, as well as on several things
never before heard. In other words, you're in for a real treat.
So, with that in mind, savor a bit of the genius that was '66-'67-era
Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys and be on the lookout for the deluxe "Smile" box
set - - - coming soon!
