smiley smile

this is what the beach boys released after the infamous "SMiLE" album was cancelled. compared to what SMiLE would have been, this is a very stripped down, home-made sounding recording, and when taken on its own merits, it proves to be a very interesting listen. Also, it's got studio mixes of "Heroes and Villains" and "Good Vibrations", two of the best songs around.
