SMiLE is America: Infinite Potential Never Reached

A very wonderful read, from what I recall (I read it 3 years ago.) I was already a big fan of Brian from growing up with the hits to cooling down to Pet Sounds when life got me down, to discovering SMiLE and collecting bootlegs and fanmixes online. This book cemented my undying appreciation for the man. He's been through so much and he's given us so much. I never knew how bad he had it under Landy and with his illness until I read this. Very heartbreaking, yet inspiring. 5/5

Here are my SMiLE Mixes. All are 2 suite, but still vastly different in several ways. Be on the lookout for another, someday.

Dumb Angel (Olorin Edition)>HERE
Dumb Angel [the Romestamo Cut]>HERE

& This is a new pet project Ive worked on, which combines Fritz Lang's classic film, Metropolis (1927) with The United States of America (1968) as a new soundtrack. More info is in the video description.

My first book I read on The Beach Boys especially Brian that I bought myself! It made me more interested in who he was and how creative he was. I loved it and have read it many times! After I read this book, I found the Heroes and Villains book as well and enjoyed it. This lead me to Jon's FAQ book which also is now a favorite. I may buy Mark Dillon's book next.

Love it--great book; I re-read it all the time. Needed a better copy editor however, to clean up some repetition of various boiler-plate phrases and syntactic constructions. Minor, minor. One can say the same of my published work too!

I got this on audio-book, which is my preferred method of digestion.

I love it. Thought it was really comprehensive and I've listened to it a few times now.

5 from me....

Hi all,

I bought the book in 2014 at my local Barnes & Noble.  I am looking forward to rereading it in May or September.

Hi all,

I mean I bought it in 2013.  It is a gem.  I am looking forward to rereading it again next month or in September.
