The Beach Boys - Good Vibrations: Thirty Years of The Beach Boys
Good Vibrations: Thirty Years of The Beach Boys does include many of The Beach Boys' hits in their original album versions, but it also includes rarities like old radio promos (which are a surprising delight), live tracks, alternate takes, rehearsal takes, etc. While these things may bore the casual fan, this box set is essential listening for hardcore fans. My favorite track from this set, "Their Hearts Were Full of Spring," a song I never would've heard otherwise.
Baleeted? No. This is a treasure chest filled with interesting things. I need to pick through it again.
