One thought on “Beautiful Dreamer: Brian Wilson And The Story of SMiLE

  1. Thank you–didn’t know that this was now on the interwebs. At the risk of sycophancy, SMiLe and Wilson himself are much too complex to be reduced to “the story,” as noted in the subtitle, but the portions of the stories presented here are the best ones, I think. I particularly Love the general exclusion of a few of the voices that created so much havoc.
