The Beach Boys are an American rock band formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. Their discography from 1961 to 1984 was originally released on the vinyl format, with the 1985 album The Beach Boys being the group's first CD release. The Beach Boys' catalogue has been released on reel-to-reel, 8-track, cassette, CD, MiniDisc, digital downloads, and various streaming services.

After the album was shelved, the song was rearranged and issued as a single in July 1967 with "You're Welcome" as the B-side. It charted at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100. Two months later, it was placed as the opening track to the studio album Smiley Smile

To some an unfinished masterpiece, to others just unfinished, the Beach Boys' Heroes and Villains was to be the centerpiece of the abandoned Smile album. Consumed by the prospect of overtopping the success of Good Vibrations and besting the Beatles, Brian Wilson dragged the band through a grueling 20 session recording process. Wilson’s chosen lyricist, the famed Van Dyke Parks, was not popular with the other members of the band. During one studio session, Mike Love reportedly berated Parks for his cryptic lyrics, while Brian Wilson cowered in the booth

A different version was released on The Beach Boys 30th anniversary boxed set Good Vibrations, which was issued in 1993. This version included the Cantina Scene and some additional lines ("At threescore and five, I'm very much alive, I've still got the jive to survive with the heroes and villains"). Sabrina from Corvallis, OrFor a long time I didn't like Heroes and Villains, but eventually I warmed up to it. The BB version is good, but I prefer the alternate version on Brian Wilson's SMiLE. P from Chicago, IlGeraint Watkins covered this song-completely different, a jazzy, boogie-woogie sound. To me, a great song stands up to a million different interpretations and still shines. Heroes & Villains is a great song.

"Heroes And Vibrations" is a taster for future "Smile" riches to come from the good folks at Vigotone. We're still in the process of assembling the best possible package one could hope for from these legendary sessions, but with public outcry for the release of this set at a fever pitch, we've decided to unleash a few goodies to give you an idea of what's to come...and we think you'll be quite pleased with what you hear!

The excerpts included here are obviously, given our title, from the myriad rehearsals and sessions that produced the best-known and representative tracks from the "Smile Era", "Good Vibrations" and "Heroes And Villains". As with most of the tapes from this period, many of the tracks featured here are fragmentary and have been difficult listening on previous, lesser quality releases. Here the material appears in stellar sound quality. Most items are in full stereo, both on tracks that have only been available before in mono, as well as on several things never before heard. In other words, you're in for a real treat.

So, with that in mind, savor a bit of the genius that was '66-'67-era Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys and be on the lookout for the deluxe "Smile" box set - - - coming soon!
