So a lot of the unreleased versions seem to augment previous releases or booted versions that I'm aware of. Just getting into it, this is a fabulous gift - one that induces us to listen deeply and re-evaluate. And take great pleasure in. Amazing.


How exactly did you mean 're-evaluate' in the context of this discussion, may I ask? Did you mean it generally in very personal terms or to look slightly differently at the Beach Boys' oeuvre (output of material) in light of this new release?

Wild Honey in stereo was a revelation! BW was still at the top of his game unlike a "lengendary" board historian would say.... Evil

Agreed SB.  It couldn't be more obvious when you listen to the recordings.

My mind is so completely blown by listening to this set. Cheers to whoever made the decision to just have the stereo version of the album, as opposed to both the stereo and mono versions, since that leaves more room for extra tracks which we have been gifted with.

I cannot imagine ever wanting to listen to the mono version again.

a few preliminary notes:

- A Thing or Two... what a revelation. So forward pushing and modern, and a song that should have been heard in this manner back then.
- backing track for Aren't You Glad... outtasight

 I have to let this all sink in more, more, more.

SOOO stoked right now. Thanks hugely to all the folks involved.

Friends and Sunflower (those two at minimum) absolutely need similar reissue treatment!

On Spotify now.

Does anyone else have a problem with tracks 10, 16, 27, 54 and 64 being corrupted after few seconds?



Yep. I wondered if it was just me.  LOL

I never noticed the connection between "Wind Chimes" (Smile version) and "Can't Wait Too Long" until now!

Since this is now in the liner notes and public, I think it's worth pointing to a little piece of information that I think is of key importance for the BBs and BRI doing right by the fans and the band as well starting with this set and into the future. On the last page:

Brother Records, Inc.: Jerry Schilling, President



Biggest news of the day, if you ask me.

Interesting. Former manager of the group and renowned member of the "Memphis Mafia" (look it up if you don't understand that one).

Anyways, hopefully he follows the great job Ernst Jørgensen has done with Elvis' stuff and apply it to The Beach Boys (and maybe even get them together again).

Some first impressions here:

Wild Honey has always been one of my favorite albums and now this stereo release vaulted it into the Top Five. I'm generally a purist with music but not so with these Beach Boys stereo mixes. They actually improve the album (Pet Sounds included).

No big reevaluation for me but as Howie points out in the liner notes, this is the last full-on Brian and Mike collaboration in a big album sense. Considering this was 50 years ago, a sobering thought.

Man, they did the right thing in canning ``Lei,d``....its appalling compared to how great the band sound on the Thanksgiving Tour.

The proof, as always, is in the audio. As some of us have been saying for years. Just listen and the facts are right there.

Just curious, informal poll kind of thing. Since a narrative was put forth and argued that Carl produced most of Wild Honey, for those who have heard the new release, where on these tracks is Carl heard actually producing the album on the included tracks and session chatter?

What a buzzkill! At least it's being corrected by Amazon, good for them.

Man oh man oh man oh man oh man oh man...

This album is perfect. Just perfect. From the progressive remix of "Fall Breaks and Back to Winter", to the beautiful stereo mix of the "Water Chant", I can't get enough of this beautiful collection of music. "Game of Love" and "Honey Get Home" TOTALLY exceeded my expectations, I'm so glad to finally hear them after all these years of speculation! Happy to hear "A Thing or Two" earning some much-needed positive reception from listeners. That's always been one of my favorite tracks off of Wild Honey, but I've seen some criticism of it in the past. And holy hell, that second version of "All Day All Night"! I could go on and on about everything that I adore about this set, but I think I'll just let the music speak for itself.

Thank you, and God bless The Beach Boys, Alan Boyd, Mark Linett, Howie Edelson, Jerry Schilling, and everyone else who made Sunshine Tomorrow a reality for us fans!

Does anybody else think "Untitled (Redwood)" might have been an early take for Time to Get Alone?  Given that the song was intended for Redeood, it makes sense.  I hummed the verse melody over it and it certainly fits.

Anyone else notice the slight pitch correction on Brian's vocal on Surf's Up (1967 Version) the second time he sings "columnated ruins do-MIN-o"?

I overlaid the version from TSS (2011) onto this version from Sunshine Tomorrow—you can listen here: http://picosong.com/WLm3 (notice the slight dissonance when he sings "domino").
