Beach Boys Revisit ‘Wild Honey’ Era With ‘Sunshine Tomorrow’ Set |

The Beach Boys‘ 1967 Wild Honey LP is getting the expanded reissue treatment with the new double-disc set Sunshine Tomorrow, due in stores this summer.

Scheduled to arrive June 30, Sunshine Tomorrow offers a remastered Wild Honey — complete with the record’s first-ever stereo mix — and adds 54 rare recordings from the era, including the unreleased Lei’d in Hawaii live LP, other concert performances captured during the late ’60s and outtakes from the sessions for Wild Honey and Smiley Smile. Plans also call for a separate vinyl release for Wild Honey, offering the stereo mix on a 180-gram disc.

“I wanted to have a home environment trip where we could record at my house,” writes Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson in the upcoming set’s liner notes. “I wanted to try something different, something new. I produced Smiley Smile, but [Mike Love] inspired me. He said ‘Brian, let’s make a really good, easygoing album.’ We had an engineer convert my den into a studio. We had my piano detuned to make it ring more.”

“Just prior to that, Brian had built up this production peak and then just completely reversed field, and did something so light and airy, and y’ know, easy,” adds Love. “That was an underground album, I figure, for us. It was completely out of the mainstream of what was going on at that time, which was all hard rock, psychedelic music, and here we come with a song called ‘Wind Chimes.’ It just didn’t have anything to do with what was going on – and that was the idea.”
