PLAYBACK: THE BRIAN WILSON ANTHOLOGY
Brian Wilson's eponymous solo debut for Sire in 1988 launched an extended period of renewal for the iconic Beach Boys songwriter. The new Rhino collection PLAYBACK: THE BRIAN WILSON ANTHOLOGY is the performer's first-ever solo career-spanning collection and covers more than 30 years of music with selections from nine of Wilson's solo albums. The set's 18 tracks mix live and studio recordings and feature such highlights as the classic "Love And Mercy," “Heroes And Villains” from the Grammy®-winning BRIAN WILSON PRESENTS SMILE and “Gettin' In Over My Head” from the 2004 album of the same name. PLAYBACK also includes a pair of previously unreleased cuts: "Run James Run," a new song Wilson wrote and recorded for this collection, and "Some Sweet Day," a gem he wrote with Andy Paley in the early 1990s for an unfinished project.
