The Beach Boys With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is an album pairing original, classic vocal performances by the Beach Boys with newly-written symphonic arrangements by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, recorded at Abbey Road Studios. The RPO convened in the hallowed Studio 2 at Abbey Road to record the new orchestral arrangements. The orchestra was conducted by Steve Sidwell and Sally Herbert, who also wrote several of the arrangements. Beach Boys co-founder Mike Love adds: "This album is one of a kind. I think the fact that the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra has accompanied the Beach Boys with these great arrangements is just a phenomenal thing. It's a whole other dimension to our music."
