The Beach Boys' 'SMiLE' Album Sessions to be Released



+ Add a Comment


The release of the lost “Smile” album is wonderful news. Fans have been waiting decades for this album, which was to build upon the landmark “Pet Sounds.” “Smile” is sure to include the trademark tight harmonies of the Boys.

One of the best examples of this is “Sloop John B,” the biggest hit from “Pet Sounds.” The song is an updated version of a West Indies folk song. On my Rockaeology blog at I write that Brian Wilson was inspired to create “Pet Sounds” after hearing the Beatles’ “Rubber Soul” – "a whole album with all good stuff."
