The Beach Boys - SMiLE (unreleased studio) 1966 - FLAC

OK. This is true Rock N' Roll history. The harmonies of the Beach Boys are 100% amazing and if you appreciate the history of popular music this is essential listening. This version of the legendary unreleased SMiLE album, (one of Brian Wilson's works of genius) is presented by Purple Chick known for her fan releases of Beatles works.

I can't say enough about the quality of this release. It is outstanding. It is a pleasure to listen to, start to finish. The historical value is worth the download alone. I don't know how long this will be up here because a version of this was officially released in 2004, though very different (Brian Wilson re-recorded much of the content and much of what is presented here is not in the official release). I have renamed all the tracks with proper titles, tagged everything with all information and artwork as is my custom. It is my honor to present to you possibly the most talked about unreleased album of all times, The Beach Boys unreleased classic "SMiLE".

27: Good Vibrations (stereo - original lyrics)

Brian Wilson's 2004 arrangement of SMiLE as performed by the Beach Boys back in the day. In glorious STEREO, just like it says on the cover. We decided to do it the way we imagined which necessitated edits, manipulation, speed tempo and pitch correction, etc. Despite killing all the sacred cows it sounds mighty fine to us.

seeder's note:
There have been many, many other attempts at reconstructing SMiLE. This one is by far the best I've heard. It all flows together beautifully, the arrangements and cuts are probably as good as we're going to get. Also, unlike any other version, it's almost completely in stereo. I think only "On A Holiday" is mostly mono, by necessity. Good Vibrations really packs a punch.

So if you're downloaded other versions, you might want to take a chance on this one also.

Jimmy Page & The Black Crowes - Wantagh 2000.07.10 - DVD Pro Shot & iTouch video

Jimmy Page & The Black Crowes
July 10, 2000
Jones Beach Amphitheater
Wantagh, NY
Pro Shot Video
Bad Wizard Label

I have always been a big fan of when Jimmy played with the Crowes having had in the collection previous amateur videos which were pretty good to say the least and the various audio bootlegs that were available to us all right through to the official release from the Greek Theatre in 1999. This release is a welcome addition to any collector, Jimmy whilst playing with the Crowes was always on fire, some people regard the vocalist as being "Tame / weak / not Robert Plant etc" should ignore this fact, cause this is all about Jimmy playing old zep standards at some of his highest standards. The highlights for me were Lemon Song, Celebration Day, In My Time of Dying. Lets not forget that the Crowes are a pretty tight and professional band and can certainly handle their instruments. The DVD itself is indeed a pro shot, where it come from who knows and who cares, the picture quality is fantastic with multi camera angles, there is a minor tape flaw in places but this does not detract from the viewing at all. The sound is simply fantastic also. This is a fantastic release and a master class in guitar playing, the intermingling of Jimmy with the Crowes guitarists is fantastic, such a pity they stopped playing. A big thumbs up on this one to the people who released it, lets hope for more. (Big Lee From Tipton Jan 07)
