RARITIES

NOTE:  My own obsession with collecting rare Beach Boys material started soon after I'd heard ALL of their legitimately-released material; first teased with the unreleased Smile Sessions, and then expanding outward.  My interest (and this site's popularity) expanded with the appearance in 1997 of the first Sea Of Tunes titles, featuring high-quality studio sessions from The Beach Boys' Capitol Years, and when that series puttered out in 1999, my own interest puttered out with it.  Most bootlegs are low-quality affairs, with shifting sound, non-existent documentation, and the ever-present odor of property theft that accompanies these kinds of releases.  With the advent of downloading, physical copies of bootlegs, like these listed here, have become an almost extinct species.  Click on the album titles to navigate.
