  • $ 99.99

The Beach Boys have opened their archives for a new career-spanning, six-CD collection titled Made In California, capping the legendary band's 50th Anniversary celebrations. Made In California features more than seven and a half hours of music, including more than 60 previously unreleased tracks. The deluxe set is presented in a high school annual-inspired hardbound book with personal recollections from the band's members, replicated classic artwork and memorabilia, photos from the band's archive, and handwritten yearbook-style inscriptions from Beach Boys Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, and David Marks.

 

Produced by The Beach Boys and The SMiLE Sessions' GRAMMYÂ Award-winning team of Mark Linett, Alan Boyd, and Dennis Wolfe, Made In California chronologically charts the 50-year career of America's Band, from their earliest demos to their most recent recordings. With huge hits and rare gems including never-before-released original songs, home demos, alternate takes and mixes, and live concert, television and radio performances, the set showcases the breadth and diversity of The Beach Boys' recorded catalog and illustrates the band's unique and evocative West Coast story. From –Surfin' Safari" to –God Only Knows," –Wouldn't It Be Nice" and –Good Vibrations" to –Kokomo," The Beach Boys' canon boasts a masterful versatility that is unparalleled in American popular music.

 

Made In California's memorabilia includes Brian Wilson's 1959 high school essay titled –My Philosophy," which is reproduced in the collection's book in its original handwritten form. In the essay, Wilson expresses his wish for a satisfying life, writing, –I don't want to settle for a mediocre life, but make a name for myself in my life's work, which I hope will be music."

 

–This box set captures the evolution of a dream which started with a family singing Everly Brothers songs around a piano, to creating the harmonies that fans would carry in their hearts for a lifetime," said Mike Love. –Seeing these photos and rediscovering some of this music, I'm reminded of the immense love I feel for Brian, Dennis, Carl, Bruce, Al, and David. I'm still floored that our stories continue to inspire new generations to catch a wave and ride it is long as it lasts."

 

Made In California's previously unreleased and long sought-after recordings include –Goin' To The Beach," –California Feelin'," –Soul Searchin'," –You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling," and –You're Still A Mystery," among others. The set also debuts 17 unreleased live recordings, including –Runaway" (1965), –Friends" and –Little Bird" (1968), –Wild Honey" (1972), –It's About Time" (1973), –Wonderful" and –Vegetables" from The Beach Boys' legendary 1993 acoustic tour, and a 1995 rendition of –Sail On, Sailor" featuring a soulful lead vocal by the late Carl Wilson. The greatly missed talents of Carl and Dennis Wilson are also celebrated with rare and previously unreleased recordings including Dennis' –(Wouldn't It Be Nice To) Live Again," –Barnyard Blues" and –My Love Lives On," Carl's lead vocals on –Da Doo Ron Ron" and –Soul Searchin'," and Carl's shared lead with Bruce and Brian on –California Feelin'."

 

The set also features a special 'From The Vaults' disc of rarities selected by the band and the producers with longtime Beach Boys fans in mind. Among the disc's highlights are a cappella mixes of standout vocal recordings for songs including –This Whole World" and –Slip On Through," alternate versions of –Don't Worry Baby" and other Beach Boys classics, session highlights and instrumental tracks, plus newly-discovered BBC Radio live recordings from 1964 of –Wendy," –When I Grow Up (To Be A Man)," and –Hushabye."
