Frown

It seemed too good to be true... And it was.
Back in Feb., word circulated that Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks were recording some new material to augment the legendary lost Beach Boys album, Smile. The story went: Wilson and Parks were mulling over the hours and hours of tape that they created in 1967, were recording bits and pieces needed to fill in gaps, and were going to mix it all together and... voila! The legendary Smile would be available for all to hear.
Today Pitchfork is reporting that Wilson has opted to re-record the whole album, throw out all the '67 material and just start over from scratch.
{sigh}
For obvious reasons (like, oh, Wilson can't really sing anymore) this sucks.
The album will be released via Nonesuch in September.

I think you're right on track and not many people are willing to admit that they share your views. terry o'quinn is an AWESOME place to discuss LOST.
