Smiley Smile

Smiley Smile

Artwork painting: unknown?

Finally I’ve got the Smiley Smile on Vinyl (Brother Records/ST-09001/US/1967) and immediately went on to do a hi-res scan out of its wonderful artwork, which fits exactly to the mood of the music.
Smiley Smile is one of my favourite albums, I always listen again and again. Won-Won-Wonderful!

The smile that you send out returns to you
