Dennis was so productive during these years yet he's hardly present on Surf's Up and Holland. It's nothing short of a real shame Undecided

He had two songs on Holland, just like Brian and Alan, while everyone else had only one song on that album, so I don't feel like his work was underreprsented here. "Only with You" is a Dennis song that really works for me, much more subtle than something like "Make It Good".


I think Holland seems like there is no Dennis since he does not sing the leads on his songs. I really like all of Holland; I'm trying to pick out Dennis voice on that album. Is he doing backup vocals on Steamboat and Only With You? I actually can't tell.

Dennis is the bass vocal on steamboat and he sings the second half of the song the but I think he’s doubled by Carl for that.

I can definitely hear his voice on "Steamboat". Maybe I'm wrong but I think he's present in the group vocals on "Big Sur" too.

Podcast sheds some interesting light on what MIGHT have been one reason for the delay/halt in the project.  Alan mentions how they went through several iterations of the set in terms of sequencing the tracks, and the final track sequencing selection came about after input from “the group.”  The final selection is similar to what they did with Made in California, and we know who was behind that.  So perhaps - this is all speculation of course - the initial sequence of the albums with bonus tracks following including a capella, instrumental mixes, finished outtake songs and unfinished demos and Dennis tracks did not meet with a certain member’s approval, and the live versions and finished outtakes following the albums, with the demos, unfinished Dennis tracks and outtake songs on the fifth disc was just what this follicularly challenged member wanted to sign off on the set.

Yeah.. Damn it Stamos!!

HAHAHAHA! I met Stamos up close once in a behind-the-scenes band context, and what really stuck with me were his perfect teeth, and his shark-like expression as he quickly examined me intently and appraisingly, trying to input the salient data points into his internal hard drive to determine if and how I fit into the overall picture and (probably just my vivid imagination) how I could possibly be of use to him in the future. Follicly challenged, indeed (I know he meant someone else.)

Shady, I've decided to bus the many miles to my nearest HMV next Friday rather than rely on Amazon or their competitors. This is of course after phoning them the day before to check they have it in stock!

The nice thing is, that is reminiscent of how I obtained the GV set back in '93, through phone calls and lengthy bus travel.

I can then peruse the literature on the return journey to really build the anticipation.

This looks excellent, the first major article ever on Dennis's early work. I hope I can catch it on the newsstands, I wasn't able to find the Howie Edelson Goldmine issue

I've given up trying to buy the 5CD so have ordered the 2CD for £14.99. When Made In California came out I waited a few months, Sainsbury's online sold off their entertainment stock and I got mine half price. Maybe there'll be a repeat of that, meantime UK stock seems to have all gone to reviewers!

I found the Goldmine issue, am checking daily for the Record Collector issue, and just found the current Shin Dig issue with the 5th Dimension so I at least know my bookstore carrys it.

Yes I'm quite sure it's Dennis and Carl doing the "Don't worry Mr Fulton, we'll keep your steamboat going". Not sure if the bass scat singing his Dennis or Mike. I can't really hear Al in the mix either so it could be Dennis and Carl did all the vocals on that one. Carl is way more prominent though. The harmonies are too muddy to really hear the individual voices.

Yeah who is doing the bass scat vocal? I always go back and forth. I lean toward it being Dennis … but he never sounded like that again.  It sounds unique for Mike as well.

I feel pretty sure that it's Dennis, and can hear a continuity between it and his later bass vocals (the end of River Song and Shortenin' Bread being the two that spring to mind), allowing for his progressing raspiness.

Dennis indeed, with the "Mr. Fulton" vocals (I think) being himself, Ricky and Carl.

Dennis is there in the brief Only With You backing vocals. I wanna say the first half of The Trader and California too, but that's harder to judge through only the current mixes.

As usual, Friday brings a few new tasters from the boxed set, which you can access now on Spotify if you're in New Zealand/east coast of Australia, or linked there through a VPN. Otherwise they will be there when the clock strikes midnight in your time zone. (ETA: Actually, it may just be available everywhere - I'm able to get it without the VPN in my pre-midnight time zone right now).

One of these is the most exciting so far IMO, namely the remix of San Miguel we heard a glimpse of in that video with Mark Linnell (I think it was) a year or so ago. It's awesome -- miles more powerful than the previously released mix. Among other things, there is a bit of harmony vocal that wasn't on the previous version in the bit between the last chorus and the fadeout section.

The other is Feel Flows - Track & Backing Vocals, which is also great. It gives us a chance to hear the backing vocals unobscured by either the lead vocal or the Leslie effect (or whatever it was) that was applied on the released version. For the first time, you can really hear what's being sung on the chorus ("white puff glistening shadowy glow"), especially when it continues playing after the instrumental track fades out. Also, the instrumental section has just the saxophone with no flute.

I'm not sure about it being Dennis. Could be, definitely not Mike imo. Kinda reminds me of the bass vocal on "Pacific Ocean Blues", but that was Greg Jacbson, I think.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Those both sound superb. I'm a little disappointed, probably like most of us here I had always thought it was "white HOT glistening shadowy FLOW" which also fits in better with the supposed (graphic content alert) ejaculation theme, or co-theme, of the tune. "Puff" doesn't quite have the same ring to it, unless you're talking about dragons, marshmallows or Rice Krispies.
