Brian Wilson's Disney Album

According to the USA Today, Brian Wilson (the founder and mastermind of the Beach Boys - not the bearded baseball pitcher) will release a new album (? do they make those anymore) in October of 11 classic Disney songs in both vocal and instrumental arrangements. At 69, Wilson best year's of recording are well behind him but according to the article, he wanted to leave his grandchildren something to remember. A couple of interesting Disney related comments from Wilson were that Pinocchio's When You Wish Upon a Star was the inspiration for the 60's Beach Boy classic Surfer Girl and that in 1965, the Beach Boys did a cover of a 50's song Graduation Day which was written by longtime Disney songwriter Richard Sherman. I've been a fan of Brian Wilson for almost 50 years through the highs and lows, the one thing you could always say about him was his total dedication to the music he produced through the years. It should be a very interesting.
