In The Preparation Of This Set, every effort has been made to make these historic recordings sound as good as they did when the Beach Boys first made them. The producers auditioned numerous tapes in order to find the original single and LP masters which have been used throughout. Songs originally released in mono (as Brian Wilson mixed them) are presented in that format, and no stereo remixing was attempted as it felt that this would not be a faithful representation of the original productions.
Analog Transfers were performed utilizing twenty bit A to D converters, and additional processing was avoided where it felt to adversely affect the music. The previously unreleased material has been selected from a variety of sources, and where indicated has been mixed from the original multi-track masters.
