2017 EU reissue on 180g LP-Originally Mixed In Mono, Transitional 1967 Album Is Newly Mixed in Stereo for the Very First Time!
By their thirteenth album, 1967's transitional Wild Honey, the Beach Boys had well and truly left the beach and embraced sounds and topics that were now a part of the California zeitgeist; there's psychedelia and even a hint of spiritual awareness. The Beach Boys were embracing a brave new world and did so with the rocking title track, a Stevie Wonder cover, the fabulous "Darlin" and 'I'd Love Just Once to See You."
Village Voice critic Robert Christgau praised Wild Honey with an A+ review, writing, "It's perfect and full of pleasure; it does what it sets out to do almost without a bad second." Bruce Johnston says that Wild Honey showcases a band devoid of pressure, "Here's the thing – the most important thing – you need to know about Wild Honey. It was just an album for us to exhale and do something real simple; but as it's Brian and Mike's music, it's still fabulous and not so simple. I love the album."
Originally mixed in mono, the album is now newly mixed in stereo for the very first time and pressed on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
