'Pacific Ocean Blue' is a cult classic which lives up to its reputation. It's lush, heartfelt, emotionally stirring and unique. This superb re-release does justice to an extraordinarily good album which has been commercially unavailable for a surprisingly long time.

The packaging is lavish - a fold-out digipak style slipcase which reproduces all the original artwork including inner pictures and lyric sheet. To this is added a substantial booklet including a great deal of information and many rare photographs. If that's not enough for you, there's a pdf file on one of the discs with more.

'Pacific Ocean Blue' comprises the first 12 tracks on the first disc - for my money it's up there with 'Astral Weeks' by Van Morrison as amongst the top 10 indispensable albums. A previous reviewer criticised the sound quality of this release: I don't believe such criticism is justified. An A-B comparison with the original (long deleted) CD release, whose quality was perfectly acceptable, reveals a very similar tonality. In places the new release is somewhat clearer and certainly offers greater dynamics - but overall the original feel has been respected and reproduced. As ever, those migrating from vinyl might take a few listens to readjust.

What of the 21 'bonus' tracks? I have always had the impression that the legendary 'lost' second solo album 'Bambu' was lost somewhere within Dennis Wilson rather than in the sense of a lost tape. There's nothing here to change my mind on that score. There are at most half a dozen tracks which hold a candle to Pacific Ocean Blue, of which about three are really magnificent. The remainder either deserve their status as out-takes, or are promising tracks so unfinished as to even, in several cases, lack all vocals.

Format: Audio CD
Dennis Wilson was the hidden heart of the Beach Boys. Sure, brother Brian was correctly acclaimed as a pop genius and brother Carl was gifted with a voice beamed straight out of heaven, but behind that dumb good-time-boy public personna their brother Dennis was quietly & modestly nurturing a musical talent of such proportion that it remains a matter of wonder and mystery to the increasing number of admirers whose lives have been touched by his work. In the beginning, of course, he was the kid who laid down the beat for the band who would now & again take a turn as lead singer on the occasional song. What is seldom remarked, however, is that something happened to Dennis during the unfortunate Smile sessions that saw Brian's production methods unravel before his very eyes. Dennis was as moved by what was happening to his brother as anyone else, perhaps even more than most, but he is on record as having being deeply affected by the music created for the most famous lost album in rock history and it's as if in tracks like 'Surf's Up' & 'Cabinessence' he heard hints of his own way forward.

The first manifestations of his development arrived with two exceptional contributions ('Be Still' & the ever popular 'Little Bird') to the Beach Boys' Friends album in 1968. He then added his mark to the subsequent 20/20 & Sunflower albums and issued an impressive solo single that suggested the launch of a solo career. This activity was followed by a worrying silence. When Surf's Up was issued in 1971 Dennis was conspicuous by his absence and I have no doubt that this great album would have been elevated to classic status had it included work by Dennis.

Format: Audio CD
I can only assume that the reviewer before me was sent the wrong version, or that Amazon are indeed false advertising here? The Legacy edition of this album contains the 3 bonus tracks including the brilliant Taylor Hawkins version of 'Holy Man' - almost impossible to tell the difference in his voice but not contrived in it's attempt in the slightest.

In simple terms, this album is brilliant. I think with regards to the reviewer below, and indeed perhaps many of you, if you purchase this album expecting another Beach Boys record, you will be solely disappointed. It's much more developed and mature in it's sound in many ways - think Nick Drake, if he'd discovered gospel choirs and written mainly on piano.

Simply heartbreaking in some places, and beautiful at the same time. Dennis was in a particularly bad place for much of his life, much in the same way that Brian was. Or any teenage kid who finds fame too young inevitably goes through. What sets Dennis apart from Brian, or indeed any of the other Beach Boys efforts, is that he perfectly documented his heartbreak and mental-state on this record.

I too watched the BBC documentary on him and found it very moving. Did you know that the Beach Boys record company owned the boat in which Dennis wrote many of his songs and spent a great deal of his time? When their company went bust later on, they were forced to sell what was, in many ways, Dennis's real home. He loved that boat. He threw many of his possessions out into the waters of the harbor where it was docked and years later when he was at a particularly rough patch of alcoholism dived under water to retrieve his lost items. Apparently he hit his head on a boat on coming back up to the surface, knocked himself unconscious and drowned.
