The Beach Boys are an American pop/ surf band formed in 1961.
Famous for their close vocal harmonies and lyrics about love, fast cars, surfing and California youth lifestyles.

The Beach Boys are the No:1 top selling American band of all times.
The group had:
1. 36 US Top 40 hits.
2. 6 Hot 100 Hits.
3. 4 No:1 singles

Now they are disbanded into 3 separate bands:

1. The Beach Boys Band-Mike Love-Bruce Johnston and backing musicians.
2. Endless Summer Band-Al Jardine-his sons and ex-Beach Boys back-up musicians.
3. Brian Wilson and his 10 piece band with members of The Wondermints and Jeff Foskett.

This album is a compilation of their hits and was recorded under the Capitol label.

A Beach Boys collector's choice. 'Good Vibrations' was the most expensive single to be recorded, in 1966.
