Dennis Wilson's long lost Pacific Ocean Blue will be released on high-definition, "Pacific Ocean" blue vinyl on Tuesday, June 24.
From Sundazed Music, this special three-LP edition of Pacific Ocean Blue will come in a lavishly illustrated triple-gatefold sleeve housing a newly mastered version of the original album along with two additional LPs containing Dennis Wilson's absolute finest unreleased solo work, including the fascinating material he recorded for Pacific Ocean Blue's intended follow-up, Bambu, all pressed on gorgeous, high-definition, "Pacific Ocean" blue vinyl.
Pacific Ocean Blue is also available in a limited edition Legacy Edition 2 CD set which was just released this week. Both the LP and CD sets contain the same 33 tracks.

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."
