1962-65 or 1967-2012: Which would you choose? The bliss of the momentum that takes us to the immediate Pet Sounds period or the peaks and troughs of 1967 onwards?

Personally I couldn't live without Today, whereas Sunflower et al would be a painful loss but I would eventually get over it.

I vote pre, just because I couldn't live without Today!

I do think post has much higher quality tunes than pre though.

That is a tough one, but I guess I'd take the post-1966 albums. Sure, I'd miss the studio versions of old hits, but luckily I'd have Stars and Stripes vol 1 to replace some of them!

What about 1966 itself? Does that fall into the pre- or post- collection, or is it exempt?

Assuming 1966 is held constant, I'd choose "pre". Too many classics I'd not want to be without.

I'd say 1966 is split in half, and thus GV would fall on the post-side.

Have to be pre, unless Endless Summer, Spirit of America, 50 Big Ones, eg., are considered post.

That's easy. Without a doubt, the post-1966 albums. If I'd have to make a top 10 of my favorite Beach Boys albums right now, I think Today! might be the only pre-1966 album on it and it would probably be something like no. 7 or 8.

I'd hate to lose an amazing album like Today! and dozens of other great tracks, but I've gotta go with post.  I love the diversity of the 1967-1973 albums.  You add Love You to that and I really can't go the other way.  I have no clue what the band's legacy would be if you could only hear from 1966 on.

Although my appreciation for the 67-73 albums has grown tremendously over the years, I still have to go with pre-66 (as long as Pet Sounds comes along with that).  For me it doesn't get better than young Brian at the top of his game.

Yeah, it's a close call, but those jammin surf tunes with Brian's young voice are too amazing.

I'd take 'Don't Worry Baby' over anything post-66....Smile material included.

I"d go Pre.  The later stuff is in general more accomplished, but it doesn't have the teeth and the excitement of the earlier songs.  I wouldn't even appreciate the Beach Boys if I hadn't heard the awesome, balls to the wall rock & roll of "Surfin USA" or "409" or "I Kissed Her" or "Catch a Wave".

Here's a tougher scenario: 1978-1987 or 1989-1998. That is to say pre-Kokomo or post-Kokomo.

1978-1987 includes: MIU, LA, KTSA, BB '85 and "Chasin' The Sky".

1989-1998 includes: Still Cruisin', SIP, Stars & Stripes Vol. 1 and Salute NASCAR.

Those lists are not complete by any means but you get the idea. I guess I would lean more toward the 1978-1987 myself.

Yuck! I guess if I had to pick, it would be 78-87.

My love of MIU makes this choice rather easy. I'm assuming Brian Wilson's solo work isn't included? I mean, if I can get Orange Crate Art and Imagination with the 89-98 deal I might take it instead.
