Synopsis: The Beach Boys' Smile album was going to eclipse Pet Sounds and outdo Sgt Pepper but thanks to band in-fighting and Brian Wilson's erratic behaviour, it was never released. This illustrated musical history tells the stories of dozens of similar near misses from rock royalty such as Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen and Prince to contemporary performers such as Green Day and Beck. Many of the featured records are accompanied by specially commissioned imaginings of the cover artwork by leading designers.
