The 25th-anniversary edition of Orange Crate Art will be released as a double vinyl LP set (this marks the album’s first vinyl release). The set will boast the pair’s cover of “What a Wonderful World,” as well as previously unreleased renditions of two George songs, “Love Is Here to Stay” and “Rhapsody in Blue.”
It’s the first collaborative studio album by American musicians Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks, released in 1995 on Warner Bros. Records. The album consists mostly of songs written and arranged by Parks, with Wilson featured as lead and backing vocalist. Its title refers to the sun-drenched, idealized paintings that grace wooden fruit crates, and its theme is a nostalgic view of the history of California.
