Smiles, Vibes & Harmony: A Tribute to Brian Wilson is a 1990 tribute album devoted to the compositions of Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys. It features cover versions mostly by alternative rock artists.[1] The cover artwork is based on the artwork created for the Beach Boys' Smile album. Instead of the "Smile Shop", it depicts The Radiant Radish, a health food store that Wilson operated during the early 1970s.
