This lays out the current situation as well as anybody’s gonna do it. Me, I wish the earth had swallowed all of ’em in 1987, or any time before “Kokomo” was recorded, because then I could still get some lookback pleasures from the early stuff and the occasion dip into the trippy. As it is, when I picked up The Smile Sessions a few years ago, the strongest emotion it evoked was curiosity. And when that was satisfied … nothing. Their endless summer has finished forever.
