Brian Wilson live at the roxy is not the pet sounds live album. I think that one is called Brian Wilson plays Pet sounds.
This album (2 cd's) contains more. a lot of beach boy stuff (California Girls, Don't worry Baby, I Get Around, Good Vibes, Help Me Rhonda. Barbra Ann, Do it Again, Surfer Girl etc.) including some songs from pet sounds (Let's go away for a while, Pet Sounds, God Only Knows, Sloop John B, Caroline no and Wouldn't it be nice)
It also has some covers and some of Brians Solo stuff.
I really like how he covers "Brian Wilson" by the Barnakedladies,then segs into "'Til I die," one of those great late '60s/early '70s songs you guys were talking about.
I'm surprised nobody mentioned the "Smiley Smile"/"Smile"-era earlier. I love "Heros and Villains." That ranks right up there with "God Only Knows" and "Good Vibrations." In fact, I think it surpases both of them. "Wonderful" is also a great song. If you want to get a good compilation that goes past the surf hits and really reflects Brian's genius, get "Beach Boys Classics Selected by Brian Wilson." Excellent intro. Far better than Greatest Hits Vol. 1 & Greatest Hits Vol. 2.
