B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 5 NOV. 2011

After finishing the pop masterpiece, Pet Sounds, Brian Wilson led The Beach Boys into the studio to record Smile, attempting to put together a "teenage symphony to God." However, due to the band's resistance and drugs and a breakdown, Smile was never completed or officially released. Now, Wilson, Scott Litt and others put together the definitive version of the most famous record never released. Until now. And it's brilliant.
