Beach Boys front man Brian Wilson was (like his producer mentor Phil Spector) a mono fiend which might be explained by his suffering hearing loss at an early age in one of his ears. I have the original 1965 Capitol album release in fake stereo. It was therefore quite a listening experience to at long last revel in the real stereo mixes. The hit single "California Girls" is stunning. Other stereophonic highlights are the UK only hit "Then I Kissed Her" (with superb vocals from Al Jardine!), "Let Him Run Wild" and "You're So Good To Me" (with a rare non-falsetto lead vocal by Brian!) It is a true mystery why Capitol Records has waited over 40 years to finally give Beach Boys fans the real thing! The other tracks also sound really good in stereo. The only slight disappointment is the US chart topper "Help Me, Rhonda" which is almost equally enjoyable in mono. And for all you stereo buffs, don't miss out on other brilliant rereleases in (mono/)stereo by this superb group!

Whilst these new releases lack any sleeve notes just replicas of the original vinyl the stereo mixes are a must have for the fanatics who must have everything. They are clean very good mixes that bring out the backing tracks. Those that are new to stereo, this plus Today, Party and Smiley Smile are all worth buying once more and most will have all the notes from the 2 fers.

this album is the masterpiece before the classic Pet sounds, so much of this album has the potential to have become
THE BEACH BOYS greatest album in history if it were not for the release of Pet Sounds
every track is brilliant with well written lyrics and vocal harmonies (well i"m a little worried about I"M BUGGED AT MY OLD MAN..what were they thinking) everything that you could ever want from a Beach Boys album
the singles are here ( California Girls, then i kissed her and the best recording of Help me, Rhonda )
the lyrics are fun,amusing dreamy and fantastic sung by the the whole group
and also a very strong contender for the best song on the album GIRL DON"T TELL ME - sung by Carl.
no group can sing harmonies better than the Beach Boys , many have tried but failed....well except the Beatles the masters
if you buy it you will enjoy no question about it.

A good album . As time went by they got better and better . Brian Wilsons harmonies made all the difference .

This is from the period of Summer Days, Today and Pet Sounds. The Beach Boys were at the pinnacle of their success. Great to hear this album in stereo at last. Their latest album "That's Why God Made The Radio" has joined this elite set.

Great "Summer" Beach Boys album, pressed on 180 gram vinyl, Duophonic mix which is fake stereo, same mono mix in each channel but with one time delayed and equalized different to the other, no true stereo mix was ever made of this wonderful album. (update) As of 2012 new stereo mixes have been created and are available here B008LA7REI

I was somewhat disappointed when I listened to the Disc, expecting it to be far superior to the earlier offering. It was only marginally better. So I will not be buying any others in this series.
