Brian Wilson Solo Albums
BRIAN WILSON (1988)
GETTING IN OVER MY HEAD (2004)
Brian Wilson Presents - SMiLE (2005)
What I Really Want For Christmas (2005)
Two 'abandoned' albums, never officially released, have also become very widely available and I wanted to review them here.
SWEET INSANITY (1991)
THE PALEY SESSIONS (1996)
In addition he has released three 'live' albums, a soundtrack to a documentary and a duo album with friend and long-time collaborator Van Dyke Parks.
I JUST WASN'T MADE FOR THESE TIMES (1995)
ORANGE CRATE ART (1995) with Van Dyke Parks
Since he started performing live for the first time (willingly) since 1965 Brian has shown the world, in no uncertain terms, what it has been missing:
LIVE AT THE ROXY (2001)
BRIAN WILSON PRESENTS PET SOUNDS (2002)
I also wanted to include a review of SMiLE live from the Royal Festival Hall, London - the first time it was ever performed on 20th February, 2004. A live DVD of SMiLE live has now also been released as a bonus disc with the documetary 'Beautiful Dreamer'.
