1967 Album Features "Good Vibrations!"
Smiley Smile is the twelfth studio album by American rock band The Beach
Boys, released on September 18, 1967. Devised as a substitute to their
then-forthcoming Smile – an LP which would have contained elaborately
orchestrated compositions labored over for several months – Smiley Smile is best
known for its contrasting lo-fi production with an avant-garde and minimalist
rock approach to arranging, being largely recorded in Brian Wilson's makeshift
home studio over a period of two weeks. The massive acclaim of the Beach Boys'
1966 single "Good Vibrations" placed high expectations on the group.
Smile was originally intended for a Christmas 1966 release, but by May 1967, the
band had yet to release any material, and their popularity in the US started to
suffer. Following Smile 's abandonment, the band cancelled their appearance at
the Monterey Pop Festival. After settling payment disputes with Capitol Records,
Smiley Smile was distributed in collaboration with Brother Records, a new record
label and holding company founded by the group. It has since grown in stature
over the years to become a cult and critical favorite in the Beach Boys' oeuvre.
SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes
the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further
enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed
for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency,
players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which
enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution
format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high
resolution format such as SACD. .
