Brian Wilson's 2004 arrangement of SMiLE as performed
by the Beach Boys back in the day. In
glorious STEREO, just like it says on the cover.
We decided to do it the way we imagined which
necessitated edits, manipulation, speed tempo
and pitch correction, etc. Despite killing
all the sacred cows it sounds mighty fine to us.

There have been many, many other attempts
at reconstructing SMiLE. This one is by far the best I've
heard. It all flows together beautifully, the
arrangements and cuts are probably as good
as we're going to get. Also, unlike any other version, it's
almost completely in stereo. I think only
"On A Holiday" is mostly mono, by necessity.
Good Vibrations really packs a punch.
