The Beach Boys Release Multi-Disc Career Spanning Box Set Today
Released today (August 27th) is the Beach Boys' Made In California, the band's latest box set -- and the followup to the Grammy Award-winning 2011 box set, The Smile Sessions. The new six CD career-spanning collection features over 60 previously unreleased songs, home demos, alternate mixes, and live recordings, and is presented in a "yearbook-inspired" hardbound book. The project was compiled and produced by the Beach Boys' archival team, producers Mark Linett and Alan Boyd, with the help of label exec Dennis Wolfe -- all three of which shared the Smile Sessions Grammy win with Brian Wilson earlier this year. The collection marks the band's fourth box set, following 1993's career-spanning Good Vibrations five CD compilation; 1997's four-disc set The Pet Sounds Sessions; and 2011's five disc Grammy Award-winning The Smile Sessions.
 
Made In California features plenty of the Beach Boys' legendary hits, but its main draw is the release of numerous previously unreleased gems -- many of which have never been bootlegged before and only rumored about existing for decades. Highlights include the previously unreleased Dennis Wilson tracks "(Wouldn't It Be Nice To) Live Again," "Mona Kani," "Barnyard Blues," and "My Love Lives On," the band's original 1963 version of "Back Home," Brian Wilson's 1974 home demo of "California Feelin'," his one-man-band 1976 rendition of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling," "Sherry, She Needs Me" -- utilizing the 1965 track and 1976 vocals, 1979 outtakes featuring Carl Wilson's take on "Da Doo Ron Ron" and Mike Love's "Goin' To The Beach." Also making their first appearance on an official release are the two unfinished Beach Boys 1995 reunion tracks with Brian Wilson -- and the band's last with Carl Wilson -- "Soul Searchin'" and "You're Still A Mystery."
