Thirty-seven years after he and lyricist Van Dyke Parks began creating SMiLE (Nonesuch Records), the album was released in 2004, giving Brian Wilson his biggest hit in nearly three
decades and garnering the pop icon widespread critical acclaim and three Grammy nominations. Featuring Wilson’s touring band of five years augmented by The Stockholm Strings and Horns, SMiLE was dubbed a “masterpiece” by Newsweek and was saluted with the rare and coveted five-star review in Rolling Stone.
Filled with compositions that are complex and sophisticated while glorious and beautiful, SMiLE was originally intended to be the follow-up to The Beach Boys’ iconic breakthrough Pet Sounds. It was to appear in stores in January 1967. In fact, more than 400,000 SMiLE record jackets were printed and ads were taken out in various magazines to prepare for the concept album. After Wilson began performing Pet Sounds live in recent years, he decided to revisit SMiLE in concert at a universally hailed week of performances at the Royal Festival Hall in London in February 2004. Soon after, Wilson returned to Sunset Sound in Hollywood, where he’d originally cut portions of SMiLE, to create the definitive studio recording.
The DVD set documents Wilson’s reunion with Van Dyke Parks, and even finds the lyricist interviewing the musical legend. The DVD’s documentary component was immediately lauded after it debuted on Showtime last year as Beautiful Dreamer: Brian Wilson And The Story of SMiLE. It tells the story of how a boy from Southern California who dreamed of becoming a major league baseball player instead became one of rock music’s greatest visionaries.Brian Wilson - Vega-Tables - Video Streams - EPK - Video Streams Track /Title Watch/Listen Watch/Listen Download Real Player Windows Media - 1.
