Rhino Handmade would love to get their hands on this material and release it in a 2000 to 5000 copy physical release.  They've been doing that with Monkee releases and I'm sure the Beach Boys would move at least as much as the Monkees at this point. 

The conundrum with the Beach Boys is that they exist simultaneously as this wonderfully quirky indie group within the framework of a big popular mainstream group. A bifurcated strategy would make sense (imagine a limited edition Rhino box of the Friends sessions!), but in the past, TPTB have only been willing to think BIG and MAINSTREAM, no matter what the release is...  Maybe if the current limited run of analogue productions LPs are successful, other kinds of niche releases may be considered in the future. The I-tunes release of the 1964 sessions is not the ideal solution, but it's the best we have at the moment. It's still a wonderful package and I've enjoyed it tremendously.

Good people, thank you so much - I now have enough copies of the liners to be able to print them off and paper the walls of my bedroom.  Grin

Sorry if its frowned upon around here to revive dead posts, but this album is now on Google Play for $10.99. I'm in Canada so it might vary depending on where you are.

I love the Today! material on here. She Knows Me Too Well A Capella is godlike.

A great compilation but, I wish that we would have gotten Don't Worry Baby and The Warmth of the Sun as Acapella mixes and some session highlights from This Car of Mine!

If I had to guess, those are probably being saved for future rarities releases.

I have to say, I've never had an issue with itunes before unlike a lot of you above, but had the hardest time getting Live From Sacramento to fully download, and now it's all out of order on the second concert. Weird.

I'm not the biggest fan of Be True to Your School, it's one of my least faves actually, but I have to say I rather like the version they did here. Really works better with the faster pace.

Are you sure the Qubuz version is from a lossless SOURCE, though, or is it possible it could be the MP3s/Apple versions just converted into a lossless format?

Doubtful - this is a legitimate site. I guess I can't absoultely verify 100%, but basically, all retailers get the same source files, but Apple/Amazon etc. then encode them to lossy later.

I just ran out of Christmas money, too. Cry Ah well, just glad this is being posted now instead of a year after initial release like The Big Beat 1963.

There is software called "lossless Audio Checker" or something like this - this will quickly and easily verify whether or not the files have been downgraded before being encoded to FLAC - ie. it checks the spectrum and assesses whther there's been a loss of any particular frequency range!

Could someone please use that and let us know?

It's free :-

Still only 44.1kHz/16 bit. Which may not be noticeably better than the mp3 version, based on what Rob (Custom Machine) says above...

Be careful with what you assume here - as I said in the Big Beat thread, Lossless Audio Checker is not necessarily foolproof when it comes to determining whether something is compressed or not.

I'm not springing for KAEOS64 from Qobuz yet (gotta save some money after Christmas first!), so I can't help out here. I wasn't able to get a definitive answer with The Big Beat, either (more on that in that thread).

But I'd love to know what anyone else discovers. If it turns out that the Qobuz files *are* from uncompressed source files, I might wait and buy the *next* copyright release direct from Qobuz. Assuming there IS another release for 1965, of course. Fingers crossed...!

44.1kHz/16 bit lossless would be CD quality, i.e. above that of MP3.

I had no idea there was a website for this sort of thing, I check the files manually with my recording software, and it's almost always obvious if something is lossy or not. If someone wanted to send me one track or even a 30 second sample of a couple songs or something...

(I'm not buying until I can be sure, by the way, but if I can verify it's legit? fukk yeh d00d)
