THE BEACH BOYS
Unsurpassed Masters Vol 13 [Sea Of Tunes
C9835/9836/9837/9838, 4CD]
The Alternate Pet Sounds Album Vol 1. Sessions and outtakes. 1965/1966. Very good soundboard.

In the late ’90s/early ’00s the label ‘Sea of Tunes’ released 21 studio outtake bootlegs of The Beach Boys, giving us nearly everything that one can find in the studio archives of the band. Apart from the stunning quality (10/10), it is a marvelous opportunity, to follow the development of Brian Wilson into this great musical genius/studio wizz he is.

Thanks to vortex242 for sharing the tracks at The Traders’ Den.

Lineage:
original silver > EAC (log included) > TLH > flac (level 6)

  6. Yeah The Beach Boys all had big diks . But the biggest dik was and is Mike Love , Both literally and figuratively.

  7. Heard he fired Brian from his own band . What a jerk . He didn’t even want to do Pet Sounds . He wanted to keep singing surf songs

    By Scaromouch on Jul 18, 2018

  8. Scar, that is not what happened. The 2012 reunion tour had a set number of dates. When it was successful, they added 20 more. After that, Mike had commitments to the touring Beach Boys group he had fronted and resumed that run. BTW, you should read what happened to the people at Sea of Tunes who released this material. You are going to hate me saying this, but some of it was commercially released on the Pet Sounds 30th anniversary box set. VERY surprised the rest of it did not come out at the end of 2016 to circumvent the EU copyright laws, but that is likely what makes this set at least quasi-legal now.
