Man! Is anyone else listening to this?

CBC Radio right now. Wow.

I missed the intro -- are these long-lost or suddenly revived tapes? Fantastic.

Re-recorded version of "Heros and Villains," just came out, thirty-seven years after they first did it.

Not the Beatles, although you can hear the influence, and they didn't run with it as far as, say, Queen could ... But that was Far Out.

I really enjoyed it.

I used to have the Smile bootlegs. Not sure if I'll shell out for the re-recorded ones, though.

Today, a pop album is released that was 38 years in the making. Some devoteesóI'm one of themówill tell you that its quality and heft make it worth every minute of waiting.

The album is called Smile. In 1966-67 it was in the works as the Beach Boys' follow-up to their now-acknowledged classic Pet Sounds, and a further step into the abstract from their surf- and cars- and girls-rooted early successes. Beach Boys auteur Brian Wilson, who composed the album and worked with Van Dyke Parks on the lyrics, eventually decided to abandon the ambitious project, even though it was already widely praised in the burgeoning pop press at the time.
