THE ALTERNATE SMILEY SMILE ALBUM

After the failure of the SMiLE album, The Beach Boys released in 1967 Smiley Smile. They used a few part of the sections that they have recorded for SMiLE and re-recorded new sections and changed the spirit and the style of the SMiLE concept. Smiley Smile was also a failure, but I think it´s time to re-listen to it. In his own style, it´s a great album, lo-fi perhaps, but as weird and psychedelic as SMilE itself. Here are most of the re-recorded sections, recorded at Brian´s home studio, and in stereo!!!

It(s just "cooking" at the moment, so I haven't had a chance to listen to it. You've got some fantastic bootleg stuff here - thanks for sharing!

Next (when Rapidshare lets me) - the Party album.

Great blog.
