Smile album for sale Product Description



Now available in a standard jewel-case, thirty-seven years after the original scheduled date for the album's release - here is SMiLE. Wilson intended for SMiLE to be his magnum opus, in his own words: "a teenage symphony to God." The highly anticipated record was scheduled to be Wilson's follow-up to the Beach Boys' masterpiece Pet Sounds, considered by many to be the greatest album in the history of rock 'n' roll.

Brian gets his "Smile"
This album is 37 years in the making and was scheduled to be released in the fall of 1966. Following on the heels of the Beatles' "Revolver", this album was the start of a new era in music. The reasons for it's non-relase are well documented elsewhere, suffice to say this album is a radical departure from earlier Beach Boys music. This album responded to changes in culture in the 60's. Comparing "Smile" to "Shut Down Volume 2" is like comparing Norman Rockwell paintings to Picasso. Both are great but very different. This album is absolutely fantastic! It is highly imaginative, innovative and contains amazing harmonies. Three of the songs were released as successful singles: "Heroes and Villans", "Surf's Up" and "Good Vibrations". All songs are re-done by Brian's current band, which is excellent! The original records had 6 voices on them. The new ones have something like 12 voices and a 22-piece orchestra and sound amazing. The final version of "SMiLE" has several new songs that peg the meter = "Song for Children" and "On a Holiday" are both fun, upbeat songs that leave you SMiLING!!! This album is fun, whimsical, reverent, honest, upbeat, friendly and just a real blast to listen to again over and over!

Finally, the musical frown has become a SMiLE.
What to say about the greatest album "never" released...37 years later? Except, it is the greatest, missing musical masterpiece, link of Rock. It conjured up so much of the, "could've would've should've", I don't know how the maestro Wilson did it, without breaking down all over again. It bridges the musical history gap from Good Vibrations to the Beatles release of Sgt.Pepper's. Mr. Martin and the Beatles, can say they had never heard SMiLE or were unaware of the music being created, but listening now, to what was then, it would seem impossible to refute.

SMILE takes you back to what might've been
Brian Wilson recreates the original very well, although I'm partial to the 1965-6 Beachboys renderings of some of the same songs that were on SMILEY SMILE and Wild Honey, fragmented as they were.

Very bummed out.....
Since the Beach Boys are my favorite band of all time, I decided to succumb to the hype of this recording. This version of SMILE comes about 35 years too late for me. Brian Wilson's voice has not improved with time, and most of the tunes I've heard done by the Beach Boys were far better than these. Corny, yes, but from Wilson's space perfectly appropriate. Own this only for the historical perspective, if you must.

What would we call that, if not a miracle?
Brian Wilson's Smile is a miracle, and real miracles are daunting, if not impossible, to confront. I'm not talking about a "Giants win the pennant" type miracle. This is more a " turning water into wine, healing the blind man's eyes with mud. I've never been much of a believer in such things, but I now believe to my soul. The end result is an amazing musical experience that surpasses all expectations. It doesn't matter if it's The Beach Boys or The Wondermints singing the harmonies. The point is this is Brian Wilson's music and Van Dyke Parks' lyrics and the artists have finished their masterpiece. Had the album been finished in 1967 and had been released then I don't think there is any doubt that it would be sitting at the top of all the greatest albums list. It would probably be more acclaimed then Sgt Pepper or Pet Sounds. Now it's finished and we have it to cherish forever. The album plays best all the way through. But some songs stand out. Especially "Surfs Up" which brings me to tears every time I hear it. It's gut wrenching. "Heroes and Villains" is the perfect opener and the new "Good Vibrations" actually edges out the original in my opinion. The arrangements are brilliant as are the lyrics. I can't stop listening to this album. Smile is an artistic triumph and one of the top 5 greatest albums I have ever heard. It surpasses anything Brian Wilson has done. Including Pet Sounds. If you are a fan of music you need to hear this record.
