"... among the most lush and wonderful songs the Beach Boys ever recorded..."
- Rolling Stone

"... includes two classic Brian Wilson ballads ... they are two of the best ballads that the Beach Boys would produce. Don’t Worry Baby would be a song of hope. Full overdubbing of the vocal harmonies make this a musical feast for the ears."
- Blogcritics.org

The first of three albums the Beach Boys released in 1964, this was titled Volume 2 to avoid confusion with a hot rod-themed compilation called Shut Down that had come out several months earlier. Shut Down Volume 2, the fifth album in 18 months from the Beach Boys, displays their progress as songwriters, containing some of the group's most mature and sophisticated material. Fun, Fun, Fun was one of their highest-charting singles to date and Don't Worry Baby is included on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time at number 176. The Warmth Of The Sun was written the same day as the assassination of John F. Kennedy and news of the shooting influenced the song.

"The Warmth Of The Sun was started early the same morning that President Kennedy was killed in Dallas. The melody was so haunting, sad, melancholy, that the only thing that I could think of lyrically was the loss of love, when interest slips and feelings aren't reciprocated ... I think it's really impactful and memorable ... one of my favourite songs from an emotional and personal point of view."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
