2013 Grammy Awards:

Best Historical Album

The long awaited release of Brian Wilson and Beach Boys masterpiece, The SMiLE Sessions. With the full participation of original Beach Boys Al Jardine, Mike Love and Brian Wilson, Capitol/EMI has, for the first time, collected and compiled the band's legendary 1966-'67 sessions for the never-completed SMiLE album. Rolling Stone called SMiLE "the most famous unfinished album in rock 'n' roll history."

In numerous sessions between the spring of 1966 and summer of 1967, The Beach Boys recorded a bounty of songs and drafts for an album, SMiLE, that was intended to follow the band's 1966 album, Pet Sounds. The master tapes were ultimately shelved, and The Beach Boys' SMiLE has never been released. Drawn from the original masters, The SMiLE Sessions presents an in-depth overview of The Beach Boys' recording sessions for the enigmatic album, which has achieved legendary, mythical status for music fans around the world.
