Sounds Of Summer - The Very Best Of

Very smart 2LP vinyl, very nice clean gatefold cover.

Sounds of Summer: The Very Best of The Beach Boys is a 2003 compilation of music by The Beach Boys released through Capitol Records. This collection is the most expansive compilation ever issued of their music, with 30 tracks clocking in at over 76 minutes and grabbing nearly every US Top 40 hit of their career, except for 1965's number 20 hit "The Little Girl I Once Knew", and the 1976 top-30 hit "It's O.K.". In 2011, Mike Love stated, "Sounds of Summer is fast approaching selling three million copies – if it's triple-platinum, which is, you know, pretty good. And by the time this 50th celebration is over, it'll probably be more than triple-platinum."[4]

Sounds of Summer: The Very Best of The Beach Boys was released in a market already containing the three volumes of hits issued during 1999 and 2000, but that did little to deter shoppers, who were responsible for shooting the CD into the US charts at number 16 (their highest peak since 1976's 15 Big Ones) and a lengthy 104-week stay. Currently certified triple platinum, Sounds of Summer: The Very Best of The Beach Boys was re-issued with a DVD component in 2004 with the regular edition remaining available.
