The Beach Boys Coming Up With Another Interesting Box Set

The focus is on the releases from 1972

The early ’70s are probably the times when The Beach Boys produced some of their most mature recordings. Concentrating on 1972’s Carl and the Passions – “So Tough” and 1973’s Holland, the new box set titled Sail On Sailor – 1972, is a new expansive multi-disc box set, releasing Nov. 18, 2022, that documents and dives deep into their transformative and fruitful 1972 era. 

As Best Classic Bands site notes, the comprehensive 6-CD Super Deluxe Edition (also coming as a 5-LP+7-inch EP vinyl box set) includes a bounty of unreleased outtakes, live recordings, radio promos, alternate versions, alternate mixes, isolated backing tracks and a cappella versions, culled from the historic album sessions. In all, it contains 105 tracks, 80 of which are previously unreleased.

Sail On Sailor – 1972 features newly remastered versions of the two albums, plus Holland’s Mount Vernon and Fairway (A Fairytale) EP (complete with its original instructions to “please listen in the dark”), and boasts an unreleased live concert recorded at NYC’s Carnegie Hall on Thanksgiving, 1972, the first-ever release of a complete Beach Boys concert from this era with the original setlist.

This latest chapter in the Beach Boys’ archival series was produced by Mark Linett and Alan Boyd, the team behind 2013’s GRAMMY® Award-winning SMiLE Sessions and last year’s acclaimed Feel Flows – The Sunflower and Surf’s Up Sessions 1969-1971.
