2012 marked the 50th anniversary of the greatest American band, The Beach Boys. To mark this momentous occasion, the band reunited to tour the country as well as a number of International concerts. The fans were thrilled to see Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks on the same stage again, playing all the hits and more. This magical tour is now captured on the 41 track collection, Live-The 50th Anniversary Tour.
The Beach Boys are America's most successful band. With 56 U.S. Top 100 hits, 36 Top Ten Hits and 4 Number One singles. To commemorate their 50th anniversary as one of America's most beloved and chart-topping bands, THE BEACH BOYS launched a triumphant 2012 reunion that has earned them massive critical accolades.
Super Deluxe Edition features recreations of the 1st 16 singles of the Beach Boys Catalog (1962-65), including accurate reproductions of the original sleeves and labels.
Released in March 1980, "Keepin' the Summer Alive" is the twenty-fourth studio album by The Beach Boys, their first released in the 1980s, and their second release under their contract with CBS Records. The band took a small break to re-think the project, with Bruce Johnston taking complete control of the album's production, and placing the songs in a more contemporary-sounding context. The album ended up as a mixture of brand new songs and older songs from the archives that hadn't been released. The older songs date back to 1970 ("When Girls Get Together"), 1972 ("Endless Harmony", the only track on the album where Dennis is heard) and 1978 ("Santa Ana Winds").
