    Bit gutted with the fancy set of reissues actually. They're well made and everything, but really? What kind of dunderhead thought it would be good to tag those extra tracks on the end of side two? Probably the person that though it would be good to cram MORE STUFF after Surf's Up on the recent Beach Boys box, Quantity over Quality . The record was made to close with La Mar, and it's a shame if i want that i'd have to break my reverie to leap up and stop the record player before Surf Rider breaks it for me....

        Supposedly an expanded edition coming out but it seems like years since I preordered. Anyone have any info if this is still happening or if I should try to look back and see if I was already charged for this preorder? :)

          2LP version of the album with a lot of unreleased tracks from original master tapes and a book with archives photos is coming later this year. Don't spread your time and money on cheap copy from a copy of a copy and pressed on vinyl which were released from 2012 to 2021 by many different labels.

            I have the latest Captain High pressing (CH 4815-1). I think it sounds very good, in the sense that it's a very clean pressing, but yes, probably cut using a CD master. I can't compare it to any other versions. The print quality isn't brilliant, but it's fine. Is it actually a licensed product, or a boot?

              Responding to a couple below, the Captain High is fairly poor sounding. Very dull and lifeless and probably just a CD pressed into some grooves. I originally had the Moi J'Connais Records version, but sold it when Captain High's was released because I wanted the original cover (and the cover on Captain High's is a good looking one). Whenever I played the Captain High I felt it was a huge step down, but didn't have the Moi J'Connais to compare. I recently re-bought the Moi J'Connais version and the difference was even more pronounced than I remembered. The Moi J'Connais version sounds WONDERFUL! Full of life, a true pleasure to listen to. Captain High's is garbage by comparison.

                I'm quite confused about which version of the vinyl to get. I've heard the captain high versions aren't that great. Can anyone comment/help me out?

                  Is the Captain High release any good? How is the sound quality?
