October 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of one of popular music's most iconic songs of all time, The Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations." The Beach Boys and Capitol/UMe will celebrate the golden milestone with the worldwide release of "Good Vibrations" (50th Anniversary Edition) on a 12-inch sunburst colored vinyl EP. Named the "Greatest Single of All Time" by MOJO magazine, "Good Vibrations" is a musical treasure for the ages.
The Good Vibrations (50th Anniversary Edition) features the original 7" single version, an alternate studio take, an edit of the song with elements from various sessions, an instrumental, and a live version from a Honolulu rehearsal in August 1967 that was originally intended for the lost album Lei'd in Hawaii, plus the single's B-side, "Let's Go Away For Awhile." A pull-out lithograph of the single's original Japanese cover art, with its "Good Vibration" title typo intact, is included in the EP package, which features the original 1966 U.S. single cover art on its front.
