THE WILSON PROJECT focuses on a 12 month period - 1986-87 - when Beach Boy BRIAN WILSON was being reintroduced to contemporary music.
Brought in to help was longtime friend and “legend” of the California music scene GARY USHER.
THE WILSON PROJECT is about the interaction, the creative out-pourings and the problems faced by Usher as he struggled to produce a foundation upon which the first solo longplayer of the mainstay Beach Boy could be built.
These problems centered around one individual in particular - DR. EUGENE LANDY - whose Svengali-like influence over Wilson shocked and worried Usher.
THE WILSON PROJECT exposes the total control exercised by “the good doctor” over his patient.
It also documents the battles that ensued for Wilson’s well-being and musical soul.
THE WILSON PROJECT is a story that proves beyond a shadow of doubt that FACT is STRANGER than FICTION.
Twenty-seven years have passed since I first published this book.
It was out of print for some time before French based publisher Les Edition Berlot re-published THE WILSON PROJECT TAPES 1-10 as THE WILSON PROJECT - 2013 EDITION in March 2013.
This book is still currently available direct from Amazon.
Over the past few years I have received quite a number of enquiries regarding an E-book edition of THE WILSON PROJECT.
As an E-Book option was not part of my publishing contract with Les Editions Berlot, I have decided to produce an E-Book edition of THE WILSON PROJECT myself.
This E-Book edition contains all the material featured within the Les Editions Berlot “book”, plus whatever other information and materials I have been able to unearth concerning "THE WILSON PROJECT" period, some of which was not included in any previous “book” editions.
This new E-book edition is more or less in two parts; the first section containing the “story” component of the book and the second section, titled “COLLECTION OF MATERIAL”, containing all the memorabilia divided into fourteen separate categories.
There are: Original Usher Polaroids; Relevant Record & CD Releases; Unofficial Releases; Odds ‘N’ Ends; Official Documents; Cassettes Received; Lyrics; Some Usher Notes; Some Letters Received; Some Articles Received; Reviews; The Various Editions; Some Promotional Items and LOVE & MERCY Versus Fantasy Or Reality.
I trust this E-Book edition - titled THE WILSON PROJECT - THE ILLUMINATED EDITION - will find an equally receptive audience.
