Show Notes Chapter Markers

In this episode we are going to listen to Brian Wilson's most creative and controversial period in making music. Brian had stopped touring with The Beach Boys and got into a creative phase writing new music without the distractions and stress of touring and he let his muse run wild. His writing had expanded in subject matter as he was getting more personal and moving away from the surf music the band was known for.

The peak of his creative powers were during the sessions for his "Pet Sounds" album. He reached a creative zenith with this album and sought to continue his momentum on his next album, "Smile". But for many reasons, He couldn't complete the album and soon abandoned the project. Some tracks were leaked out and many felt this collection was a lost classic. The myth of "Smile" has expanded all these decades later and a large cult has been devoted to it.

I'll be playing select tracks from this period.
