Here's the full press release, which mentions other upcoming projects (the So Tough/Holland archival set, a feature-length documentary, etc.):

Good spot. Sounds like the "tribute special" is the closest anyone's getting to a 60th gig - which may include some, all or none of the BBs.

The documentary is major news though - could do for them what the Anthology did for the flagging Beatles brand in the 90s.

Regarding the documentary, unfortunately I don't think we'll be looking at anything near the scope of the "Beatles Anthology" if we're looking at simply a feature-length doc.  

Someone recently dug up some info indicating the doc is being done with Disney, so I'm guessing we're looking at a single, "feature-length" documentary (*possibly* two parts at the most), probably on the Disney+ streaming service.

I think we're looking at, at best, something more like an updated version of the "Endless Harmony" doc as opposed to a BBs version of the "Beatles Anthology."

Here's the tracklisting from the Apple Music listing which seems to indicate which mixes are 2021, etc.

Perhaps something of the scope of The Bee Gees one on HBO - which still did well for them https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bee_Gees:_How_Can_You_Mend_a_Broken_Heart

1. Hmmm, unless my eyes skipped it, no The Little Girl I Once Knew? That would make for a nice stereo extraction.
2. Guess they couldn't extract the single mix of Be True To Your School.
3. The Good Vibrations mix sounds fantastic!

Thanks for sharing that, I am probably most excited by the new mix for the love you tracks as well as this mysterious "alternate take" of all I wanna do, I'm guessing this would be something that was totally different and not included on the FF box

Wow, I almost missed them announcing a multi-disc set for Carl and The Passions-So Tough and Holland coming out this year as well.  I am very curious to hear the new stereo mixes of I Get Around and Help Me Rhonda but I don't understand why The Little Girl I Once Knew is absent if they are using technology to turn mono mixes into stereo now.

It's probably just me, but the fact that the individual band members are not mentioned by name until the end of this press release is a little disheartening. Like this statement: "With each album, The Beach Boys refined their songwriting and production skills, rapidly evolving from their early surf beginnings to create some of the most sonically exquisite and most important and beloved music ever made." I don't know what they're trying to do with this approach, I guess we'll see.

Good to see another archival 70's set in the pipeline though.

I really hope we will get some full concerts from the 72-74 era. They were an incredible live band in those days.

I’m not sure why the press release doesn’t mention it, but important to point out here that we’ll also be getting new liner notes on this from Howie Edelson. Howie also played a key role in selecting the running order of the second and third discs (the first disc of course mirroring the original 2003 CD).

Two of the main reasons the core fans would be picking this up would be the new packaging/liner notes, and the new stereo remixes, and this press release didn’t detail either of those.

In any event, I’m glad Howie and the team are there doing their thing on these projects. Obviously, the band/label are going to do some sort of 60th hits package, it's inevitable. This set could have easily just been "Sounds of Summer" with that "Warmth of the Sun" disc and most of "Greatest Hits Vol. 3" just tacked on. I'm glad a lot more thought went into the track selection and consideration for some new remixes.

It’s a little weird there’s nothing from That’s Why God Made the Radio on the expanded Sounds of Summer.

I mean, it is and it isn't? There's plenty I like on there, but from a standpoint of 'appeasing all camps' that would seem to be one of the more politically thorny albums to pull tracks from.

The timestamp matches the Dennis lead on All I Want To Do from 2018, so it seems more likely it's a typo.

I’m not digging the stereo mix of “Good Vibrations.”

Has anybody else noticed that the track listing for the six-LP set has only one side on the sixth disc?

Wondering what the 1993 year listed for those SMiLE tracks means exactly.

Assuming GV 30 Years Box Set mixes?

This looks like a great starter set for a new fan.

I do have to say that I'm disappointed (but obviously not surprised) that we couldn't have gotten a new track or two from the guys. I guess the chances of a real reunion are probably not great.

Also, count me as a little annoyed at all the new stereo remixes. It was neat in the late '90s and early '00s, but now we have to be on like fourth stereo remixes for some of these songs, right? But nobody's forcing me to buy this, although I'm nearly positive I will. Cuz I'm me.

That's a real head-scratcher.  Why would they use those 1993 mixes?   To my ear, the 2011 Smile Sessions mix of "Wind Chimes" sounds much clearer and crisper.

Had another think about this - maybe the 1993 just signifies that those recordings were first released in that year.

I've often wondered a couple things when it comes to these compilations.
1) What does it mean when no year in indicated? Many of the songs have title only; what would one assume the source of those tracks to be? There is probably an obvious answer to this that I am missing, but would love some clarification from anyone who knows!
2) Using songs from "Pet Sounds" to illustrate my confusion over source selections, according to the Apple Music tracklisting posted here earlier, "God Only Knows" is the '96 stereo mix, "Wouldn't It Be Nice" is 2013, and "Sloop John B." is unspecified. From an album like that which has been remastered more than any others in their catalogue, I find it amusing and confusing as to why so many compilations cherry pick from a variety of versions. Is there a consensus after the fact that some of the later releases are not, in fact, better (despite improved technology/new mastering/etc.)? Or are there preferences within the band for certain versions that are adhered to regardless?
3) With several releases over the years boasting newer mixes and/or remastering, wouldn't (in theory) one expect that the latest version to be the "best" one? Surely they'd be advertised as such ("using the latest technology," etc.).
