On this day in 1967, the Beach Boys released Smiley Smile. Devised as a simplified version of SMiLE, this album features a minimalist approach and lo-fi production. Recording took only six weeks in Brian's makeshift home studio, using predominantly radio broadcasting equipment, a detuned piano, electronic bass and a Baldwin theater organ. While the album featured the hits "Good Vibrations" and "Heroes and Villains," it became their lowest charting album to that point, peaking at #41. Fifty years later, the album is considered a cult classic. #SMiLE #SmileySmile #1967 #beachboys #homestudio #goodvibrations #heroesandvillains #minimal #lofi #41

55 years ago this week, the Beach Boys released their third album, "Surfer Girl." This was the first album for which Brian was given full production credit, and the hits included "Surfer Girl," "Little Deuce Coupe" and "in My Room." The photo was taken at Paradise Cove, north of Malibu CA. #1963 #thebeachboys #surfergirl #littledeucecoupe #inmyroom #paradisecove

The past eight days featured individual vocal tracks recorded by Brian during the Pet Sounds sessions for “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder). The vocals were recorded at United Western Recorders on February 11, 1966. Brian ultimately decided against using harmonies on the song, opting only for his lead vocal – rare for a Beach Boys song. Said Brian: “I’m proud to say it was a very pretty ballad achievement.”
