Capitol could have just ignored this anniversary just like Apple has done with most of the Beatles. Instead, they give us this nicely priced, limited edition HDCD. It inlcudes, for the first time, the original backing track in stereo!!! Plus some other stuff that have been released before, but scattered around in box sets, and imports. Its nice to have it all in one place, for a good price, in a limited edition that one day will go for twice the price. If you are a beach boys fan, run and get it.
