I know no one asked, but here’s my prediction:
Disc One: remastered sunflower + bonus tracks from the Sunflower sessions
Disk 2: instrumentals, a cappellas, and studio banter from the sunflower sessions.
Disk 3: remastered Surfs’ Up + bonus tracks from the Surfs’ Up sessions.
Disk 4: instrumentals, a cappella’s, and studio banter from the Surfs’ Up sessions.
Disk 5: live recordings from 1969-1971.
Then, hopefully, this December, we get a copyright dump with anything that’s left.
Then in December 2021, we get another copy right dump with super early So Tough Sessions, then sometime in 2022, we can get a new box set  chronicling the Blondie and Ricky years.

A couple of years ago you wrote the post below. Are we in the ballpark?

Although Townshend and McCartney have some incredible works that still remain long unreleased, you really couldn't say they trump the contemporary released product. The sheer QUALITY of BB's material, and we're talking songs from demo to master -- all the layers -- to my knowledge (and I've done deep dives through more than a few band vaults) is unprecedented. No other band has what they have. You look at major AOR artists -- Elton, The Band, The Eagles -- there's NOTHING there. In some cases they were stretching just to get enough material to fill an LP. TONS of filler.

Personally, if I owned these masters, I would do a 15-25 disc DUMP of all of this unreleased (1968-1978) material. Redefine the market like the BOOTLEG SERIES did in '91. There wouldn't be a single music rag, blog, or website that wouldn't automatically give it ANTHOLOGY-like press. You wouldn't have to read about BB's music in expensive fan publications. Real press would EAT IT UP. Film and TV placements would follow, moving the narrative past the tents, bedroom years, and shitt ily written Christmas tour articles. With so little effort, EVERYTHING could change.

EVERYTHING.
And all because of outtakes.

I remember you saying Howie a couple of years ago that there are still some great unreleased tracks in the vaults, is that true still?

Every LP could and SHOULD be a box set.
The Brother vault is an embarrassment of riches.

Especially during the eras where ALL SIX were composing/producing.
It's ridiculous. Absolute Vitamin C.

YESSS.

Thanks for the update Howie, "breathtaking" is quite the endorsement and I'm absolutely stoked for this. Can't wait for the announcement to come!

Um, so this has been out there under everyone's noses for over 6 months: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ng3b4NbKvv8

At the time of this video (December), one track of Fred's with vocals was being considered for the boxset, so we might see that on the tracklist. It sounds shockingly good.

Don't know how to take Fred's "this one happened to survive" comment (he previously said he still had all of the tapes), but it's looking like whatever's there has been digitally transferred and will probably make it out in some form before the end of the year.

If the box is set for an August release to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the original SunFlower, then we should be hearing an announcement here within the next couple weeks.

How the hell did I miss that? Always wanted to hear Brian's version of Country with such super musicians as James Burton, Glen Hardin etc.


EDIT: Very nice. Vail certainly is not the best singer in the world, but still a good enough job. And I love that pedal steel intro. Want to hear more!

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Holy sh*t!  Fred doesn’t sound too bad, I always expected way worse if I ever got to hear any of his stuff!  Thanks for posting that link!

Lord, I remember communicating with Fred way back in my Friends of The Beach Boys days.  He talked about the album way back then, in the spring of ‘77!

Here's a post about it from last November: https://www.facebook.com/russ.smith.739/posts/10218995856679337

Sounds like the plan was to raise enough funds to complete that track with new overdubs, potentially for the archive release, and then do additional work on the other songs with Fred's vocals. That'd presumably be a springboard to put the whole collection of instrumental tracks out. I wish we'd picked up on this sooner, no idea if they managed to reach the goal!

This is fantastic! The pedal steel guitar is top notch, I hope this gets an official release.

If Howie is excited, I'm extra excited. Thanks for chiming in, H. This is my favorite era of the band song-wise and production-wise. A really interesting and short-lived period of consistently good work.
