Dennis Wilson Rereleases

I'm sure you've heard already that Dennis Wilson's 1977 solo album Pacific Ocean Blue is finally being rereleased. You can read about it here, here, here, here, here and here. The rerelease of the album will be on 2 CDs featuring remastered tracks from Pacific Ocean Blue and his unreleased follow up album, Bambu. It will also have several tracks never before heard, even on the bootleg circuit.

It's going to be very awesome and unlike bootlegs releases before it (for example here), this rerelease will sound great and "Liner notes for the album are being penned by Beach Boys scholars such as David Leaf, Jon Stebbins, Ben Edmonds and David Beard, and the package will feature photographs by Wilson's close friend, Jan & Dean's Dean Torrence."

I'm excited and you should be too! There's a great Dennis Wilson fansite, http://www.denniswilsondreamer.org/. You should go there and check out the forums. The site has been up forever and it has all the Dennis Wilson info you could ever need, not to mention it has been pretty busy lately with talk of the rerelease. Go check it out!
