The Very Best of the Beach Boys is an album released by the American rock and roll band The Beach Boys. The album was released by EMI in 2001 and features 30 of their greatest hits digitally remastered. The album is the first compilation of The Beach Boys that makes a full retrospective of their career, displaying their greatest hit songs, during their 40-year career.
In 1999, after it was certified 2x platinum by the RIAA it was decided to create sequels to the original collection, so the release was updated accordingly to reflect this change. The updated version was re-issued on September 21, 1999, the same day that its sequel, The Greatest Hits – Volume 2: 20 More Good Vibrations appeared
Since the Beach Boys had too many hits to fit onto one 20-track collection, it made sense to have two separate 20-track discs, but the dividing line is arbitrary. For its three quarters, Greatest Hits, Vol. 1 appears to be a straight chronological trawl through the hits, beginning with "Surfin' Safari" and running through "Barbara An. Upon close inspection, a number of major songs - "Surfin'," "Shut Down," "In My Room," "Don't Worry Baby" - are missing, yet that portion of the album plays very well
The Very Best of the Beach Boys. Let me tell you, the world has been tiring me out. North Korean threats? Domestic bombings? Has the world gone crazy? Sometimes we need something pure and true to get us through the tough months, but thank the Lord for The Very Best of the Beach Boys. Not only does this beautiful album contain all-time classics like Surfin’ Safari, and Fun, Fun, Fun, it also gives us the immortal Sloop John B, the inimitable Heroes and Villains, and of course, the greatest pop song ever written, God Only Knows
The first version was released in the United States on July 5, 1966, two months after Pet Sounds. Another version of Best of The Beach Boys was issued in the United Kingdom on November 11, 1966 with a track listing that differed from the American release.

More importantly, the album contains early surf/party cuts (. "I Get Around," "Fun, Fun, Fun"), a good sample of their sweet/sad, more personal songs (. the superb "In My Room," "Don't Worry Baby," "Darlin'," Wouldn't It Be Nice"), and some of the more ground-breaking material ("Good Vibrations," "Caroline, No," and four others from "Pet Sounds").
