The Beach Boys have announced that the 1966-67 SMiLE sessions will be released on October 1st (November 1st in America) via Capitol/EMI.

It's a pretty important release, and this is reflected in the available formats (2xCD/2xLP/Digital/iTunes LP/Box Set). The Box Set, which can be seen (partially) above, contains a million CDs and LPs. Ok, it only contains 5 CD's and two LPs, but with the addition of a 60-page book, two 7"s and a few more items, this really should be renamed the 'Monster Box Set'.

We're pretty excited about this one.
