The Beach Boys / Sounds of Summer expanded reissue

Expanded to 80 tracks with some newly mixed

As part of a planned year-long celebration of The Beach Boys’ 60th anniversary, Capitol Records/UMe are to release a newly remastered and massively expanded edition of the group’s greatest hits collection Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best of The Beach Boys.

This collection was originally issued in 2003 and contained 30 tracks. The reissue updates both the number of songs and the audio quality with an extra 50 songs, giving a total of 80 tracks across three CDs or six vinyl LPs.

This has been put together by Mark Linettand Alan Boyd who were responsible for last year’s Feel Flows – The Sunflower and Surf’s Up Sessions 1969-1971 and other Beach Boys packages.

This collection features nearly every US Top 40 hit of The Beach Boys’ career, including ‘California Girls’, ‘I Get Around’, ‘Surfer Girl’, ‘Surfin’ U.S.A.’, ‘Fun, Fun, Fun’, ‘God Only Knows’, ‘Good Vibrations’, ‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice’, ,Kokomo’, ‘Barbara Ann’, ‘Help Me, Rhonda’, ‘In My Room’ and many others. Of course with 50 extra tracks it goes well beyond ‘the hits’.

In terms of the audio, the collection boasts 24 new mixes including two first-time stereo mixes, plus 22 new-and-improved stereo mixes, which in some cases features “the latest in digital stereo extraction technology”, allowing for the team to separate the original mono backing tracks for the first time.

The expanded edition of Sounds Of Summer is available as a 3CD set and 6LP vinyl super deluxe box pressed on 180g black vinyl. Both include a booklet with new sleeve notes and updated photos.

The 30 tracks on the original release (a single CD edition is also available) have been mixed in Dolby Atmos although sadly there is no physical edition as part of the offering.

Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best of The Beach Boys will be released on 17 June 2022. Good price in France for the 6LP vinyl version.
