The Beach Boys are celebrating their 60th anniversary in 2022. To honor the Boys of Summer, Capitol Records and UMe will release a re-mastered and expanded edition of their greatest hits, Sounds of Summer: The Very Best of The Beach Boys, on June 17th.
The collection was originally released back in 2003. The newly re-mastered version has been updated with the number of songs included, along with audio quality. The expanded edition will feature 50 more songs, bringing the total to 80 songs included.
It will span their amazing run from their 1962 debut album, Surfin’ Safari, through 1989’s Still Cruisin’.
It will be available in various ways, including digitally, a three-CD soft-pack, and also as a Super Deluxe Edition six-LP vinyl box set on 180-gram black vinyl in two options – a standard set or a numbered, limited-edition set.
The guys said, “It’s hard to believe it’s been 60 years since we signed to Capitol Records and released our first album, Surfin’ Safari. We were just kids in 1962 and could have never dreamed about where our music would take us, that it would have such a big impact on the world, still be loved, and continue to be discovered by generation after generation. This is a huge milestone that we’re all very honored to have achieved. And to our incredible fans, forever and new, we look forward to sharing even more throughout the year.”
