Heroes and Vibrations

The Beach Boys

VigOtone, VT-163
The liner notes say "Breathtaking quality" which is accurate. Great stereo mix. Some GV tracks have been officially released. H&V tracks are mostly snippets and fragments showing Brian's obsession with details. I really like the "Bicycle Rider" (main H&V theme and variations)on just tack piano.
