THIS ALBUM WAS WILSON'S FOLLOW UP TO PET SOUNDS, you remember, the album that influenced Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Smile is inarguably the most long awaited album in modern pop history. It's been more than 37 years since the title first appeared on a label release schedule, intended as the January, 1967 follow-up to the groundbreaking art-rock of the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds. But Smile never made its initial release date. Today, this album is not a mere reconstruction of past performances, but something entirely new, a serious summation of a project that has been gestating for nearly four decades. Lavish packaging with mammoth thick booklet and a lovely box to slip it all in.
