Dennis Wilson's 'Pacific Ocean Blue' has been unavailable for years
Beach Boys legend Dennis Wilson’s classic 1977 album ‘Pacific Ocean Blue’ is to be reissued after being out of print for over a decade.
The record was originally released in 1977, and is now regarded as a cult classic. The new 2CD ‘Legacy Edition’ version, out on May 19, will feature the original album plus a brand new bonus track which has never appeared on any bootleg on Disc One.
Disc Two will feature over a dozen bonus tracks from the ‘Pacific Ocean Blue’ sessions and its’ intended but unreleased follow-up ‘Bambu’ (known widely, but errenously, as ‘Bamboo’).
The tracklisting for the original album is:
‘Thoughts Of You’
‘You And I’
‘Pacific Ocean Blue’
‘Farewell My Friend’
‘End Of The Show’
Dennis Wilson, who was the drummer in The Beach Boys, drowned in 1983 in his native California, aged just 39.
