Capitol Records and the Beach Boys begin their major reissue campaign for the band’s 50th anniversary with two new hits compilations and remastered versions of twelve classic albums.

The Beach Boys’ new 50th Anniversary Greatest Hits collection features 20 of the band’s most popular songs, including California Girls, Good Vibrations, Surfin’ U.S.A., Wouldn’t It Be Nice, God Only Knows, Kokomo, their latest single That’s Why God Made The Radio, and many more.

A deluxe, career-spanning 2-CD box and digital collection titled Greatest Hits: 50 Big Ones will also be released, featuring 50 Beach Boys favorites, including two songs from the band’s new album — the title track That’s Why God Made The Radio and a new single version of Isn’t It Time, which will be serviced to radio in September. The 2-CD lift-top box package also includes an expanded booklet with newly written liner notes by Rolling Stone contributing editor David Wild and seven postcards.

The 12 Beach Boys studio albums have been digitally remastered by Mark Linett and will be released on CD and digitally, most featuring mono and stereo mixes. These releases mark the stereo debut of Smiley Smile and Beach Boys Party!, while The Beach Boys Today! and Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!) are being released in stereo for the first time in their entirety. The new releases include the first-ever stereo mixes of several key Beach Boys classics, including Good Vibrations, Help Me, Rhonda, I Get Around, and 409, among others.

A career-spanning Beach Boys 50th Anniversary box set is planned for release later this year by Capitol/EMI. Details about the special commemorative release will be announced soon.
