High quality mini vinyl replicas, similar to the much loved Japanese paper sleeves. It features 2 CD's in a Gatefold digi pack, black polycarbonate discs (to mimic vinyl look), booklet, obi strip, inner CD wallets and plastic outer sleeve. In September of 1977 Dennis Wilson released what is still today, in our opinion, the best solo album ever released by a Beach Boy (yeah, sorry Brian) called Pacific Ocean Blue. After its initial release, the record was cut out in 1979 and while it appeared briefly on CD for a few months in 1991, it's been out of print ever since. The best news of all is that it has 20 previously unreleased tracks including several songs that have never even been bootlegged like Dennis' version of Only With You (originally recorded by the Beach Boys for Holland), Tug of Love (yanked off of the original album at the last minute in favour of Farewell my Friend) and Holy Man all newly mixed by John Hanlon who recorded many of the original sessions. The first disc of this legacy edition features the original album newly remastered by Vic Anesini from '91 CD. Disc two, Bambu (the caribou sessions), is a round up of various tracks that Dennis recorded during his term as a solo artist for Jim Guercio's Caribou Records. Bambu was to be the follow up album to Pacific Ocean Blue but was never completed. This is not what Dennis intended to be the finished Bambu album but a compilation of the best tracks he recorded during the Pacific Ocean Blue / Bambu / Caribou period. the truth of the matter is that Dennis recorded constantly during this period and tracks that have been labeled as Bambu tracks over the years were started before and during Pacific Ocean Blue sessions. The scarcity of the record has made it both a cult-favourite and a high-priced collector's item over the years. the classic original the album captures Wilson on the precipice of his drugs-and-alcohol-fueled decline, which eventually led to Wilson's drowning death in 1983.
