Brian Wilson I Just Wasn't Made For These Times on 180g LP
Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray
Along with The Beach Boys, the legendary Brian Wilson, the rock and roll genius and ambassador of time honored classic rock and popular song, invented and helped shape the California sound for the entire world to enjoy for over 50 years. His distinct vision and musical imagery for The Beach Boys truly made them one of the first rock bands in history to sell multi-platinum and gold albums to millions of fans around the globe.
In 1996, Brian Wilson and long-time admirer superstar producer Don Was collaborated on what was to become a much applauded project in Wilson’s long time solo career. Pre-dating his own Smile album release by several years, I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times was a soundtrack to the critically acclaimed documentary which went on to receive several Emmy and Sundance nominations during the film’s initial run at the theater and on the Disney Channel.
Organically recorded with its minimalistic approach, Don Was reached for and delivered the soulful side of Brian Wilson. For this masterwork, Brian performs a number of his classic Beach Boys hits like "The Warmth Of The Sun," "Do It Again" (featuring daughters Carnie and Wendy Wilson) and album track treasures like "Meant For You" from Friends, "Til I Die" from Surf’s Up and of course the Pet Sounds classic "Caroline, No."
For this album, Brian Wilson also included some of his later solo hits like "Love And Mercy," "Melt Away" and a very rare home studio demo of "Still I Dream Of It," plus even more Beach Boys classics like "This Whole World" from Sunflower.
In an effort to continually offer the consummate music fan with the greatest recordings of all time, Friday Music proudly presents a vinyl reissue of Brian Wilson’s classic masterpiece I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times. Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray.
In addition to the wonderful music contained on this stunning release, to celebrate this album, Friday Music is also including a wonderful gatefold cover which features the original artwork elements from the compact disc release, rare photographs, as well as Don Was' recollections and Brian Wilson’s special notes from the original artwork.
