Social Share Links: 

Los Angeles – November 11, 2022 – Following the recent release of the long sought-after Dennis Wilson and Blondie Chaplin gem “Carry Me Home,” The Beach Boys are sharing a stunning previously unreleased a cappellamix of “All This Is That,” which strips away the music to allow listeners to hear the pristine vocals of Al JardineCarl Wilson and Mike Love and the group’s trademark harmonies exactly as they were recorded in the studio. Inspired by the Transcendental Meditation teachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Robert Frost’s poem, “The Road Not Taken,” “All This Is That” is one of the many standout tracks released on the band’s 1972 album Carl and the Passions – “So Tough.”

The acapella mix of “All This Is That” is featured on the highly anticipated new box set, Sail On Sailor – 1972, which examines and celebrates fifty years of The Beach Boys pivotal and transformative 1972 period that bore the landmark albums, 1972’s Carl and the Passions – “So Tough” and 1973’s Holland. The expansive multi-disc and digital box set, releasing December 2ndvia Capitol Records/UMe, is the latest chapter in the Beach Boys’ archival series and was produced by Mark Linett and Alan Boyd, the team behind 2013’s GRAMMY® Award-winning SMiLE Sessions and last year’s acclaimed Feel Flows – The Sunflower and Surf’s Up Sessions 1969-1971. The comprehensive 6CD Super Deluxe Edition features newly remastered versions of Carl and the Passions – “So Tough” and Holland, plus Holland’s Mount Vernon and Fairway (A Fairytale) EP, and boasts an unreleased live concert recorded at NYC’s famed Carnegie Hall on Thanksgiving, 1972, the first-ever release of a complete Beach Boys concert from this era with the original setlist.

Similar to Feel Flows, which topped many year-end lists in 2022 and was selected by MOJO as their prestigious “Reissue Of The Year,” Sail On Sailor - 1972 includes a bounty of unreleased outtakes, live recordings, radio promos, alternate versions, alternate mixes, isolated backing tracks and a cappella versions, culled from the historic album sessions. In all, it contains 105 tracks, 80 of which are previously unreleased. Additionally, Carl and the Passions – “So Tough” and Holland have been mixed in immersive Dolby Atmos.

Housed in a beautifully designed 12.5” x 10” hardback book-style package, Sail On Sailor - 1972 is rounded out with a detailed 48-page booklet with extensive liner notes by noted radio veteran and Beach Boys aficionado Howie Edelson, featuring new and archival interviews with The Beach Boys, rare photos of the band, images of tape boxes and reels and other recording artifacts, producers notes from Linett and Boyd, and promotional memorabilia from the day, providing an in-depth look at the recording of these albums.

In addition to the 6CD Super Deluxe Edition, Sail on Sailor - 1972 will be available as a 5LP+7-inch EP vinyl box set, which includes the entire Carnegie Hall concerts, a variety of bonus material (also found on the Super Deluxe), and for the first time ever, a reproduction of Brian Wilson’s EP, Mount Vernon and Fairway (A Fairytale) on 7-inch, the format it was originally released on as a companion to Holland. The vinyl box will be available on its own or as a limited edition set with lithographs. A variety of abbreviated versions will also be available, including a 2LP+7-inch EP set, available with or without a limited edition reproduction of the original Holland promotional book telling the story of the making of the album; a 2CD deluxe edition; and digitally.

To accompany the release, a new capsule collection of “Sail On Sailor”-inspired merch is launching today featuring t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats and more. The new apparel joins The Beach Boys recently unveiled holiday merch line that includes a variety of shirts and hoodies emblazoned with imagery from the band’s classic Christmas album as well as branded scarves, beanies, and ornaments.

The year 1972 was an important period for The Beach Boys. Fresh off riding a wave of newfound popularity and critical acclaim from their back-to-back albums, 1970’s progressive and kaleidoscopic Sunflower and 1971’s wide-ranging Surf’s UpBrian WilsonCarl WilsonDennis WilsonMike Love, and Al Jardine didn’t waste any time getting back into the studio to record their 18th studio album, Carl and the Passions – “So Tough”. For the first time in their careers, new members were brought into the fold: guitarist/bassist Blondie Chaplin and drummer Ricky Fataar – two former members of the Carl Wilson-produced South African group The Flame, who were signed to the band’s Brother Records – officially joined the group after serving as their main support act. Together the newly expanded Beach Boys redefined their sound, look, vibe and message for a new era of fans.

Sail On Sailor – 1972 offers an opportunity like never before to revisit this creatively fertile and transitional time in the band and experience this underappreciated era, a time when The Beach Boys threw out all the rules and reinvented themselves once again.
