File under: things found while packing... Back in 2000 I had the opportunity to take the one and only Jay Dee aka Dilla, around for a tour of Portland's records stores.
The whole day pretty much consisted of he and I pulling out various records for each other on some, "yo, you up on this?".
One of the joints he pulled and literally MADE ME BUY, was this Beach Boys LP.
At the time I wasn't buying anything of the sort (and it took his influence to get me to budge) but, I'm glad he insisted that I cop it (from the 50 cent bin at Everyday Music on Burnside).
Amazing LP...check out Smiley Smile if you get a chance. Super experimental and ahead of its time in so many ways(much like J Dilla). Also includes the smash Good Vibrations.
