A musical legacy that began in Hawthorne, California and went on to conquer the world. Analogue Productions presents the ultimate pressings of 14 essential Beach Boys albums! Mastered by Kevin Gray, most from the original master tapes, and plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings, the finest LP pressing facility in the world, these are awesome recordings to experience. And the look of each album befits its sonic superiority! Presented in 'old school' Stoughton tip-on jackets, these time honored favorites shine brighter than the originals! "Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!)" was released in stereo for the first time in 2012. These stereo mixes were created between 2005 and 2012 using the first generation basic tracking session multitracks, synced with the overdubs that were later added on second and third generation masters, to create the first true stereo mixes. The exception is "Help Me Rhonda", which is a computer-generated stereo mix by Derry Fitzgerald. A remix in stereo for that track isn't possible because many overdubs were added as the song was mixed for the original mono single. The stereo mixes for "Today!", "Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!)", "Beach Boys' Party!" and "Smiley Smile" were produced and mixed by Mark Linett, and co-produced by Alan Boyd. Apart from "Surfin' Safari", which was mono only, the Beach Boys did turn in stereo masters on all of their early albums up until 1965. "The Beach Boys Today!" was the first LP for which they only delivered a mono master. The stereo editions of "Surfin' USA", "Surfer Girl", "Little Deuce Coupe", "Shut Down Vol. 2", "All Summer Long", "Beach Boys Christmas Album" and "Beach Boys Concert" were all mixed in stereo by their own preferred engineer, Chuck Britz, ostensibly under the group's supervision. »Brian may or may not have been present for those mixing sessions — evidence suggests that he trusted Chuck's skills enough to let him prepare those mixes on his own — but the group held onto their multitrack tapes and delivered stereo masters to Capitol, rather than allowing Capitol to prepare their own stereo versions. Later, when Brian was only delivering mono masters, Capitol would prepare the Duophonic pseudo stereo editions for the stereo market,« says Alan Boyd, producer and Beach Boys' archivist. All of the newer stereo mixes on these remastered albums ("The Beach Boys Today!", "Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!)", "The Beach Boys' Party", "Pet Sounds" and "Smiley Smile") were all done by Mark Linett on behalf of the Beach Boys. "Summer Days" features another Wilson world-beater production, "California Girls", and the band's second No. 1 single, "Help Me, Rhonda". Ever pressured by commercial concerns, Wilson and the band created what was in essence the true follow-up to the "All Summer Long" album. Still, there's a level of musical sophistication to tracks such as "Salt Lake City", the Phil Spector tribute "Then I Kissed Her", "Summer Means New Love" and "Let Him Run Wild".
