Well, I said last time that we were going to be kicking things off with some new releases we've been working on slowly over the past couple of months, and I can't really think of anyone better to begin with than our all-time hero.
Although a couple of imports released during the past two decades have attempted to consolidate some of Brian's outside stuff into a complete set, neither could be considered anything close to comprehensive. Therefore, Visions is the only compilation available that presents the complete picture of Brian as studio auteur and mogul.
From his nascent 1962 explorations into writing and recording with Gary Usher, to the resplendent tracks he produced during his final reunion with The Honeys during the late seventies, it's all presented here in chronological order for your listening pleasure. Visions offers fascinating insight into Brian's unheralded parallel career as an independent record producer, as it showcases alternate paths he may have traveled further were it not for his dedication to The Beach Boys.
As always, every effort has been put forth by us here at the Sphere, both in terms of sound quality and attention to detail. This one is special to us, and we want this to be one compilation one you'll return to again and again. Also includes a bonus folder with over 100 period photos, including all the official 45 labels and more.
