According to Rolling Stone, Sony/BMG's Legacy label will be releasing a Deluxe version of Dennis Wilson's Pacific Ocean Blue on June 10th, 2008. The First disc will be the complete album with Demo's and out-takes, and the 2nd disc is the follow up album that was never released, entitled "Bambu".
Dennis' second solo effort, Bambu was shelved by lack of finance and the distractions of simultaneous Beach Boys projects and though never officially unreleased, was often bootlegged. Two songs from Bambu were included on the Beach Boys 1979 L.A. (Light Album) and represent Dennis Wilson's final officially released artistic statements.
The unreleased album was long believed by fans to have been entitled 'Bamboo', however, a recent press release from Caribou Records states that the correct spelling was indeed 'Bambu', after the brand of rolling papers.
Dennis claimed in a September 1977 interview that his second solo album was much better than his first album. He said, "The next album is a hundred times what Pacific Ocean Blue is. It kicks. It's different in a way. I think I have more confidence now that I've completed one project."
