1967 Album Features "Good Vibrations!"
Smiley Smile is the twelfth studio album by American rock band The Beach Boys, released on September 18, 1967. Devised as a substitute to their then-forthcoming Smile an LP which would have contained elaborately orchestrated compositions labored over for several months Smiley Smile is best known for its contrasting lo-fi production with an avant-garde and minimalist rock approach to arranging, being largely recorded in Brian Wilson's makeshift home studio over a period of two weeks. The massive acclaim of the Beach Boys' 1966 single "Good Vibrations" placed high expectations on the group.
Smile was originally intended for a Christmas 1966 release, but by May 1967, the band had yet to release any material, and their popularity in the US started to suffer. Following Smile 's abandonment, the band cancelled their appearance at the Monterey Pop Festival. After settling payment disputes with Capitol Records, Smiley Smile was distributed in collaboration with Brother Records, a new record label and holding company founded by the group. It has since grown in stature over the years to become a cult and critical favorite in the Beach Boys' oeuvre.

These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD. .
