Smile

The Beach Boys

The Early Years 02-CD 3317

The line-up is impressive, but the sound quality is abysmal. For example, "Can't Wait Too Long" is included as a bonus track on SS/WH and has commercial-quality production. This version, as with all these cuts, has a second or third generation home cassette sound. Some cuts even have what sound like vinyl pops. "Wonderful" is distorted.

It's painful to listen to from a production standpoint, but it gives you a terrific feel for the concept of Smile.

You'll probably mumble to yourself "If only....."
