Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
From "Surfin'" to "Kokomo," the first four discs of this box chart the Beach Boys' inimitable 30-year course. Here are all the hits and key album tracks, and an assortment of unreleased material that illuminates Brian Wilson and company's immense contribution to the development of pop music. (Especially fascinating are the assembled fragments from Wilson's abandoned 1966 masterwork, Smile.) A fifth disc features demos, radio spots, live tracks, and studio goodies for the hardcore fan. The set confirms Brian's hardworking genius, but also gives each member his due, especially the late Carl Wilson. Rock & roll music grew up with the Beach Boys, and this box is rock's best family album. --Ben Edmonds

CD Reviews

Capitol, Help!! Please Put the Fidelity Back in This Box Set
jamg53 | Raleigh, NC | 03/11/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The sound quality of this box set is extremely disappointing- Frank C.'s 1 star review is spot on. I really hoped he was wrong when I ordered this set, but sadly, he's right...Oh, well. You can easily tell the inferior quality of the recordings on this boxed set if you compare the same songs from the later remasters on 'Sounds of Summer' and 'Warmth of the Sun'. At the same time, this boxed set has some great 5 star musical content. So I'll give it 3-1/2 stars, since musical content trumps sound quality....I hope someday soon Capitol records will try to right the wrongs they have done to music lovers who paid for these very unmusical, sucked out recordings by putting the fidelity back into this boxed set..."
