T15 - The Making of The Beach Boys Smile Sessions
Arguably the greatest “lost” album of all time, The Beach Boys Smile album sessions were finally released last November, in both a 2 CD and 5 CD version, along with vinyl and other digital configurations. The co-producer of the project, Mark Linett, will be interviewed by producer and educator Barry Marshall about the legendary 1966-67 sessions. The presentation will provide historical context on the role of producer Brian Wilson, as well as a focus on the technical and logistical challenges (like mixing and mastering from 45-year-old tapes at different configurations, speeds and sizes!) faced by co-producer and mix engineer Mark Linett in compiling this landmark release.
