From a previously unreleased 1961 recording of their first single "Surfin" to their 1988 #1, "Kokomo," GOOD VIBRATIONS collects everything anyone would want to hear by The Beach Boys. The first disc in this 5-disc set collects the sun and surf hits like "Barbara Ann" and "Fun, Fun, Fun" that summed up the mythical California dream for generations of Americans. While The Beach Boys certainly created some wonderful rock and roll in their 1962-1966 heyday, it's for the brilliant music on discs two and three that they have become rock legends.
These two CDs capture Beach Boys leader Brian Wilson at the peak of his powers, creating still-astounding singles like "Good Vibrations" and the incomparable, otherworldly PET SOUNDS album. One of the real highlights of GOOD VIBRATIONS is that it features many of the fascinating, previously unreleased songs recorded for the aborted SMILE--the legendary unreleased album that allegedly drove Brian Wilson to his 1967 nervous breakdown. Though The Beach Boys were never quite the same after SMILE, this near-perfect box set contains plenty of songs that prove there was much more to the band than Brian Wilson's fragile genius.
