The Beach Boys
"Today!", also known as "The Beach Boys Today!" is the eighth studio album by The Beach Boys, and their first of three in 1965. Although few realized the significance of the album at the time, Today! marked a major turning point inside the band's world, and in particular, leader Brian Wilson's personal life. After Pet Sounds, the album is arguably the most acclaimed album of the Beach Boys' career. The album includes the original version of the classic hit, "Help Me, Rhonda" (titled on this album as "Help Me, Ronda"). In 1965, Today! (Capitol (D) T 2269) hit #4 in the US during a chart stay of 50 weeks. It reached #6 in the UK in the summer of 1966. In 2012, Today! was voted 271st on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".
