78 Vibrations Per Minute: Beach Boys Vinyl Single Set Coming...

While the >SMiLE CD Al Jardine teased in a recent interview remains in limbo, Beach Boys fans can anticipate a legit release to coincide with this coming Record Store Day. On April 16, Capitol Records will be issuing a 78 RPM double-single set of two key SMiLE tracks. Disc one features an early take of "Good Vibrations" on Side A and an alternate take of "Heroes and Villains" on the flip. Disc two contains the standard, Smiley Smile versions of these twin surf-psych classics. Nothing unreleased here, but a neat item for collectors and a possible indication that a companion CD set will, indeed, hit the shops this summer. Keep your fingers crossed and your boards waxed...
