The Beach Boys have been around for over 50 years, but they still have a little bit of fuel left in the tank. Since their recent reunion, they have performed more than 50 concerts, and garnered critical acclaim for their newest album That’s Why God Made the Radio. As their North American tour comes to an end, Capitol/EMI has now announced that is has plans to release 12 remastered classic Beach Boys studio albums on September 24, as well as two commemorative hits collections on October 9.
The classic studio albums have been remastered by Mark Linett and will include stereo remasters of songs like “Good Vibrations” and “Help Me Rhonda,” which have never been released in Stereo. The new album Greatest Hits will feature 20 of the groups most famous singles, while Greatest Hits: 50 Big Ones will include 50 of the band’s well loved music, a 2 CD lift-top package and a booklet with liner notes by Rolling Stone contributor David Wild.
The group will discuss their new releases when they conduct a live Twitter Q & A at 2PM PST, September 18. Fans can participate in the conversation by sending a tweet to @TheBeachBoys with #BeachBoys in the subject line.
