This collection revisits Wilson’s solo career with a new 18-song collection that mixes studio and live recordings with two previously unreleased tracks: “Run James Run” - a new song Wilson wrote and recorded for this collection, and “Some Sweet Day” a gem he wrote with Andy Paley in the early 1990s for an unfinished recording project.

Playback: The Brian Wilson Anthology covers more than thirty years of music with selections from nine of Wilson’s solo albums. Several tracks on the album come from the two albums Wilson released in 2004: Gettin’ In Over My Head and the Grammy®-winning Brian Wilson Presents Smile. The most poignant of these is “Soul Searchin’” a song Wilson built around a vocal track left behind by his brother Carl, who passed away in 1998. The celebrated orchestral masterpiece, Smile is represented by “Heroes And Villains”, and the timeless classic, “Surf’s Up”.

The set also features two live performances from Wilson’s 2000 concert recording, Live At The Roxy Theatre. Included here are “The First Time” and “This Isn’t Love” a charming collaboration with Wilson’s Pet Sounds lyricist Tony Asher.

Playback: The Brian Wilson Anthology includes a selection of classic photos from throughout Wilson’s solo career, in addition to a candid shot taken in the studio in 2017 during the recording of “Run James Run”. The album also includes liner notes by David Wild and features a previously unseen picture of Wilson on the front cover, taken by legendary rock photographer Robert Matheu.
