Orange Crate Art returns

Coming June 26, from Omnivore Recordings, a remastered reissue of Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks’s 1995 album Orange Crate Art, with instrumental tracks and three unreleased songs, including an affecting interpretation of “What a Wonderful World.” You can hear that song now via Rolling Stone.

To my mind, Van Dyke’s “Orange Crate Art” is, as the sidebar says, one of the great American songs. It’s twenty-five years old. It’s also timeless.
