The Beach Boys
Smile Sessions Box Set
Merchandising in 2011

SMiLE MALL MAGAZINE

It only took 44 years to see an official release of the Beach Boys SMiLE - but Capitol is undertaking a promotional merchandise campaign of the likes that haven't been seen since the 1964 wave of Beatles merchandising!

The success of Smile box set versions that included a light-up Smile box and the Smile Surfboard are only the tip of the iceberg. The merchandise promotion for the Beach Boys Smile Sessions has now shifted into overdrive with the creation of SMiLE MALL - a magazine of SMiLE-only merchandise.

Phase II of Smile merchandise has just been announced, and we are proud to display some of the new items that are available from the pages of SMiLE MALL!
