Dave Prokopy's New Smile Tape Set

The Beach Boys


A very well constructed tape set that gives one just about everything they would ever want from the Smile sessions including a reconstructed Smile album from the best available scraps.

The sound does vary wildly but then so does the sources. Comes with an excellent 30 page booklet that explains every track, gives all neccesary Smile background and teaches you all you need to know. Even though it's a tape set, don't let it throw you of f, this is as good as they come.
