“A blind class aristocracy”

The Beach Boys – “Surf’s Up” from Smile (aborted album, 1967)

While “Surf’s Up” made an appearance on the 1971 album of the same name, this is a reconstructed version similar to what Brian Wilson probably intended for the original Smile record, and is remarkably similar to what showed up on the 2004 Brian Wilson release.

I downloaded the tracks from Ryan’s Smile site a few years back.
