No. Physical only for me. Even a burnt CD-R with artwork is better. I don't collect "air". I do consider myself a diehard Beach Boys fan, with all the official stuff plus extraneous, but digital is where I draw the line. So I'll just have to go without. I had hoped they would do physical for most of the archival sets, and I still think they would at least break even on such things. Much of the work that goes into a physical release also applies to the digital only release. Really it is just the pressing of CD's and the printing of booklets that makes for added cost, I should think.

To Mr. Stephen Desper: Your candid and openly honest reply to me was quite illuminating and perspective changing. I feel for you in regard to your health problems and understand the complications they can thrust into your life. I hope you find relief. I will propose a deal with you: I will be the one to go away, you need to stay. A lot of people will miss you terribly and I, honestly, will be one of them. Please don't let a curmudgeonly old man run you off. This site needs you more than it needs me. If I find the proverbial wave, grab your board and shoulder hop with me. PEACE!

We are extremely fortunate to have Stephen Desper posting on this board, freely giving his time to share information, experiences and insights from a firsthand perspective. I'm incredulous that he has to put up with inane comments like some of those posted in this thread.

Steve, please know that I appreciate your posts and have gained a much deeper understanding of what transpired during your tenure with the band, which also happens to be my overall favorite period of Beach Boys recorded music.

Believe it or not, it was "Ten Little Indians" as a new release in 1962, on the radio.

I first heard "Surfin' USA" in 1963. Jan & Dean's "Surf City" followed soon after.

I can't say I enjoyed it as a kid. I can remember screeching along mockingly to the falsetto parts as my uncle played the hits by the pool. Then around age 12 after falling in love with the Beatles over night, the Beach Boys soon followed. "Sounds of Summer" was the first CD he gave me so my official appreciative introduction was to "California Girls" but it certainly wasn't my first time hearing 75% of the stuff on there.

Cannot believe a poster - who thinks period usage at the end of sentences is optional - has the chutzpah to try and "chime in" and grammar police Stephen (and also missing the point and being totally incorrect in their initial assumptions).  Undecided Why? What's the bloody point? Blows my mind.
Well, I just worried if Mr. Desper misunderstood SydBarrett's post as an attack against his insight (which could possibly make him less comfortable about sharing it here), and pointed out it wasn't.

I absolutely meant no offense against Mr. Desper, and I'm sorry if he took it as any kind of offense.

And yes, I agree that the original poster should have used comma before the word "you know" to avoid confusion.
