As Rolling Stone put it, SMiLE is the "most famous unfinished album in rock & roll history". Originally intended to be the follow up to Pet Sounds, label "back room" business shelved SMiLE. Collecting and compiling the sessions that the Beach boys recorded between the summer of 1966 and 1967, Capitol/EMI - with full participation of original band members Al Jardine, Mike Love, and Brian Wilson - presents this 180g "approximation" of the legendary unreleased rock album. A must for fans, the double LP features full album/sessions, bonus mixes, gatefold packaging, inner sleeve art, lyrics, and 12" x 12" booklet created for the original release. The artwork is inspired by Beat-Pop artist Frank Holems' original 1967 art and booklet design intended forSMiLE. Recommended.
