'1967'

History



Smile is an album with one hell of a story, and that's probably why it's the most discussed and dissected unreleased album in the history of rock music.
After the critically overwhelming but commercially underwhelming Pet Sounds album, lead songwriter Brian Wilson had to come up with an album that would not only return the Beach Boys to the level of commercial success which had made them the most popular American band of the 60s, but also keep the Beach Boys musically relevant and hip with the times - no easy task in the rapidly changing musical landscape of late 1966 and early 1967.
