Now, here's a small sensation ! On November 5th 1964 the Beach Boys played a session for the BBC. The recordings were thought to be lost. This program (at circa 1h 49 min) lets you listen to "Hushabye" from this session. It hasn't been heard since 1964 !!!

So, I saw the Beach Boys in Berlin on friday. All I can say is WOW !!! Brian was on and the other boys were stunning as well. I had a perfect look on Brian's keyboard (which he played on almost every song - throughout !) and I was surprised at how little the backing band takes over on vocals. Sure, they add very important voices and sound great but the most part was really the Beach Boys plus Jeff Foskett and Scott Totten.
Darian Sahanaja sang a great "Darlin'", Scott Totten a beautiful "Ballad of ol' Betsy" and Jeff Foskett a lovely "Don't worry baby".
The O2 world was nearly sold out with 9000 people and the boys did a great mix of the hits and deep cuts. They brought the house down !

If any of you has a chance: go and see this show !!! Just go there !!

There's quite some good stuff on there. Hope we'll get an official release. Speaking of that, read this:

The Beach Boys Continue 50th Anniversary Celebration with Two New Hits Collections and 12 Remastered Studio Albums to be Released Worldwide by Capitol/EMI

Legendary Band’s 50th Anniversary Tour Rolls On with International Dates

Hollywood, California – August 8, 2012 – Celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year, The Beach Boys have performed more than 50 concerts since April and had their highest-ever debut on Billboard’s albums chart in June with their critically acclaimed new studio release, That’s Why God Made The Radio. The Beach Boys’ 50th Anniversary Tour recently concluded its North American run and is now underway in Europe, and the legendary band is pleased to announce plans for the CD and digital release of two new commemorative hits collections by Capitol/EMI on September 24th outside of North America and on October 9th in North America. 12 remastered Beach Boys studio albums will also be released by Capitol/EMI on September 24th outside of North America and on September 25th in North America.

The Beach Boys’ new 50th Anniversary Greatest Hits collection features 20 of the band’s most popular songs, including “California Girls,” “Good Vibrations,” “Surfin’ U.S.A.,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “God Only Knows,” “Kokomo,” their latest single “That’s Why God Made The Radio,” and many more.

A deluxe, career-spanning 2CD box and digital collection titled Greatest Hits: 50 Big Ones will also be released, featuring 50 Beach Boys favorites, including two songs from the band’s new album — the title track “That’s Why God Made The Radio” and a new single version of “Isn’t It Time,” which will be serviced to radio in September. The 2CD lift-top box package also includes an expanded booklet with newly written liner notes by Rolling Stone contributing editor David Wild and seven postcards.

The 12 Beach Boys studio albums have been digitally remastered by Mark Linett and will be released on CD and digitally, most featuring mono and stereo mixes. The albums are: Surfin’ U.S.A.; Surfer Girl; Little Deuce Coupe; Shut Down, Volume 2; All Summer Long; The Beach Boys Today!; Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!); Beach Boys Party!; Pet Sounds; Smiley Smile; Sunflower (stereo mix only); and Surf’s Up (stereo mix only). These releases mark the stereo debut of Smiley Smile and Beach Boys Party!, while The Beach Boys Today! and Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!) are being released in stereo for the first time in their entirety. The new releases include the first-ever stereo mixes of several key Beach Boys classics, including “Good Vibrations,” “Help Me, Rhonda,” “I Get Around,” and “409,” among others.

On September 18th, The GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles will launch a special Beach Boys 50th Anniversary exhibit with ‘An Evening With The Beach Boys,’ a public event featuring a Q&A and acoustic performance by Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, and David Marks (www.grammymuseum.org).

A career-spanning Beach Boys 50th Anniversary box set is planned for release later this year by Capitol/EMI. Details about the special commemorative release will be announced soon.

Beach Boys Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, and David Marks have reunited this year for a major, international 50th Anniversary Tour and That’s Why God Made The Radio, the first studio album of new, original Beach Boys songs to feature all of the band’s surviving original members since 1989’s Still Cruisin’. Produced by Brian Wilson and executive produced by Mike Love, the album debuted at #3 on Billboard’s Albums chart and has been received with great excitement and praise from the world’s leading media outlets and fans old and new. In recent reviews, Rolling Stone hailed the album as “a breezy nostalgia trip” and “deeply touching work,” People magazine praised its “intricately layered, swoon-worthy harmonies,” and the Associated Press said, “The songs harken back to a simpler time when people wore Huarache sandals, polished their surfboards, and raced their hot rods.”

For five decades, America’s first pop band to reach the 50 year milestone has recorded and performed the music that has become the world’s favorite soundtrack to summer. Founded in Hawthorne, California in 1961, The Beach Boys were originally comprised of the three teenaged Wilson brothers: Brian, Carl and Dennis, their cousin Mike Love, and school friend Al Jardine. In 1962, neighbor David Marks joined the group for their first wave of hits with Capitol Records, leaving in late 1963, and in 1965, Bruce Johnston joined the band when Brian Wilson retired from touring to focus on writing and producing for the group.

The Beach Boys signed with Capitol Records in July 1962 and released their first album, Surfin’ Safari, that same year. The album spent 37 weeks on the Billboard chart, launching the young group known for its shimmering vocal harmonies and relaxed California style into international stardom. The Wilson/Love collaboration resulted in many huge international chart hits, and under Brian Wilson’s musical leadership, the band’s initial surf-rock focus was soon broadened to include other themes, making The Beach Boys America’s preeminent band of the 1960s.

In 1966, The Beach Boys were one of the first bands to found its own record label with the launch of Brother Records, Inc. (BRI), with the band’s members as its shareholders and Capitol Records as its distribution partner. BRI continues to manage The Beach Boys’ intellectual property, including the band’s catalog with Capitol/EMI and other label partners, as well as its name, logos, image and likeness.

The Beach Boys continue to hold Billboard / Nielsen SoundScan’s record as the top-selling American band for albums and singles, and they are also the American group with the most Billboard Top 40 chart hits (36). ‘Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys’ has achieved triple-Platinum sales status, and ‘The SMiLE Sessions,’ released to worldwide critical acclaim in November, was heralded as 2011’s #1 Reissue of the Year by Rolling Stone magazine.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and recipients of The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, The Beach Boys are an American institution that is iconic around the world.

I guess it's the best you just look on wikipedia. They shall have the original tracklistings. The great thing is that for the first time ever we will get stereo versions of "Good vibrations" "I get around" and "Help me, Rhonda".
I hope for bonus tracks. The original two-fers from the early 90s (re-released in the 2000s) had quite a bit. The discs will feature mono and stereo versions of the albums (if I understand correctly), except of course "Sunflower" and "Surf's up", so I hope we'll finally get Dennis' Surf's Up-era "Wouldn't it be nice to live again", arguably the most fantastic unreleased piece of music in the Beach Boys' vaults.

Nothing on wikipedia so far.
I have all the 90s 2fers so I hope they improve the sound and add more bonus tracks, besides the new stereo mixes.

It will be interesting to see how the remasters sound. I have so many versions of the band's albums, I am cautious about getting another round of reissues. I'd rather see more archival material; especially from the "Brothers Records years."

All the material I've heard so far through the years of the mono stuff remixed into stereo was fantastic.
Hopefully these will be winners too.
Can't wait to hear "Today" in full dimensional stereo.
