I for one am a big fan of the supplemental chart from a couple pages back, comparing the box set vinyl and CD incarnations.  That shows us the provenance of EVERY track, LP, 45, and CD, and even the 2011 Record Store Day 78's!  A really useful engine, as they say!!!

Copied it from here and keep it with my box set - AND SO SHOULD ALL OF YOU!!

I have the box, so I don't have the button. Could someone please post a pic of the button ? I wasn't able to find a photo of it online. Thanks

Just to hold you over, the button is about 1 inch in diameter with "SMiLE" (same font and color as on album cover) over white. I wouldn't lose sleep over it.

Two more questions....

1) Was the vinyl LP in the box supposed to be shrink wrapped ?

2) Mark Linett mentioned in his Icon Fetch interview that there is a extra fan made sessionography online for cd 1. Does anyone know where I can download that ?

Thanks

My vinyl wasn't wrapped, only the cd's. I bought the 2 cd edition and the boxset just to make sure i got everything. To those curious as to the SMiLE button (or badge), surely if u can afford the big old stinkin' boxset then you can shell out a tenner for the 2-cd edition on top? Come on people, let's get those sales figures up!!!

The packaging for the box set is the best I have ever seen, it just looks brilliant. Then you open it up and find the CD/45 book with original press clippings and master tape reproductions, the book with great photos, anecdotes and Craig's lovingly done sessionography, then the photo booklet, then the 2LPs which just feel right in your hands and then you find the SMiLE poster too! I don't mind admitting that I actually hugged my box set when I first got it!

I can see them too. The light up box looks fantastic! Almost makes me wish I splurged on it instead of the regular box.

I realize this reply is about two years late, but it still bothers me... I think that the folder that the five cds are housed in is a really poor design. While it certainly looks cool, three of the five cds had digital clicking on the last track (disc  four actually had clicking on the last five tracks!). In short, I spent $140 to get a damaged product! I was able to make de-clicked copies luckily, but I wish it didn't come to that! My theory is that the cds rub/scrape on the backing. Looks good, wrecks the cds. Not cool...

Same thing happened with mine.  I was pretty disappointed.  And I had the same problem with MIC, out of the wrapper.  The discs arrived out of the cardboard sleeve.

Having just got into podcasts, I'd heard Mark say that too. Anyone know where that sessionography is online?

When I read the booklet the question always remains, "What's going on here? What's SMiLE really about?"

The essays sort of echo each other in not being able to really nail this question down.

I also posted this in the main TSS Box thread, but a nice detail to add here too:

Chris Bellman, who did the vinyl mastering, wrote the following little messages in the dead wax at the end of each LP side:
side 1: "Dumb Angel"
side 2: "For Carl & Dennis"
side 3: "Look, listen, vibrate"
side 4: "For Chuck and Larry"  (Chuck Britz and Larry Levine)

No messages on the 45's, though.  Correction: Dan Lega reports there are.  Huh!
                            

The Heroes and Villains 45 has "At 2 Score" written on Part 1 and "and 5" on Part 2.

I doubt it - same here.

Nice little box it is too - and we get a button which the big box apparently didn't Smiley

I actually bought the little one second, it was back when I had less bills and lived with my parents...I also wanted it because disc 2 (while having the same tracks as the big box set) had a different track line up than disc 2 of the big boxset.

Oh when I actually had money to by minuscule different items! That'll never happen again! 😬

I have nothing to add to this particular discussion except that I agree, the box set is well put together and the booklet is a treat. My Only criticism is that VDP didn't get an essay into the book. That is a glaring and inexcusable omission.
