Since the middle of August I have been working on the vinyl cutting for a 2 record set of the album "Smile" by Brian Wilson. This is a project that was originally attempted in 1966-67 by the Beach Boys, but was never released. It has since attained mythical status among followers of the band. Brian has decided to revisit the project after these many years. The results are quite unique. I would like to encourarge our community to find the limited edition vinyl (when it is released in a few weeks) and the best turntable setup you can get and do some comparitive listening to the vinyl vs. the CD just released this week. I have done some listening and have heard a striking difference and would like your opinions. As a bonus, the album Side D is a colllection of 4 instrumental versions not on the CD. The vinyl is scheduled for release in England, Europe & the USA. Also, Brian is currently touring with the band that made the recording, along with a string section & horns. This promises to be quite a show. This gives us all a chance to do a direct comparison between a digital and analog media for a current project with a variety of natural sounds, great dynamic range, and up to the minute production techniques.
