Sometimes, the simplest ideas are the best - and why no-one's thought of this before I can't begin to imagine. This is just what's needed at this moment in the Beach Boys career - a greatest hits package. This kind of product has been sorely lacking in their catalogue. I can't begin to guess what songs will appear (I'm writing this before the release) but it's sure to be a "Must-have", especially for al the hard core fans who probably don't have many, if any, of the tracks here. Whoever thought of releasing this for the benefit of the many who haven't heard these Beach Boys hits should be rewarded. Fantastic, original concept. I still can't get over it - a CD of the Beach Boys hits... still I suppose someone would have come up with eventually.
