The U.S. Singles Collection: The Capitol Years 1962-1965

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
The bright, summery singles of the Beach Boys not only helped define the AM pop sound of the '60s, but with themes of cars, surfboards, and girls, they also painted an idyllic picture of life in California, or life in summer anywhere for that matter, a brilliant synthesis that has given the group's classic recordings a long, long shelf life on radio. This set collects the group's first 16 singles in single-disc facsimile sleeves, with the discs containing the A and B sides of each single as well as alternate takes and live versions, so it's actually a series of 16 little EPs. Collectors will love this.
