[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Beach Boys[/lastfm] are heading to back to vinyl in limited edition 78-rpm pressings as part of this spring’s Record Store Day promotion. The format is more associated with pre-’50s stars such as Bing Crosby and Benny Goodman. But for the super-elite collector, the idea of special singles pairing “Good Vibrations” and “Heroes and Villains,” in both regular and alternate takes, has to rank with the rarest of Beach Boys rarities.
