I think Brian may be singing on all of Dennis's songs, but definitely on Love Surrounds Me, where he can be clearly heard with what I assume is Carl. Given that BW's relationship was closer with his brothers than the rest of the band, and with Dennis in particular due to a certain form of existential angst they shared, I think it likely that he would have wanted to make a contribution to DW's songs as an act of brotherly solidarity.

I can't hear him, but as he added a lot vocally to Celebrate The News, Forever, Sound Of Free, etc. perhaps he was.

it's almost as if he's looking at Carl for a cue as to when he (Brian) should come in with his "you need good timin" part. I always have to shake my head at that, I mean, how simple a part was that, to come in with "you need good timin" right after Carl.

An ironic line to sing if he was looking at Carl to know when to sing it!

The only other people I can here on Love Surrounds Me are Christie McVie and Carl. Or, am I correct that it's Christie McVie on the LA version and not just on the Bambu version?

Otherwise, I honestly don't think Brian sang a note on that album. Aside from me simply not hearing him, it just doesn't FEEL like he's there.

He (Brian's) definitely on "Angel Come Home", no question about it (I've been told his name's even on the track sheet, singing on two tracks with Bruce).  As for "Love Surrounds Me", I hear Carl and Dennis singing harmony parts together, and the really REALLY high part is Bruce Johnston and/or Bobby Figueroa.  Christine is indeed on the L.A. Light version, but mostly in the tag.

Ah, good info.

Gotta give Bruce props for that high part. I love it, but always assumed it was Christie McVie.

Ya know as I have been reading this thread about Brian's vocals, something else occurred to me. Al Jardine was hardly on this album at all as well. Obviously Lady Lynda and Good Timin but what else? Seems like most of the harmonies are Carl and Bruce with Mike occassionally. Guess Al was busy with the horses during these sessions?

Well, of course, none of us actually know because we weren't there, but when I listen to the BG vox come in on Love Surrounds Me at 0.34, 1.04, (and particularly) 2.00 and 2.15 I hear BW's 'slightly unpleasant' 'mature' voice, and the 'A love of my own' at 2.54 and 3.06 sounds alot like that too.

But, hey, maybe we just hear what we want to hear.

I've just listened to that song and I thought I heard Brian in there on Love Surrounds Me.

Al's also on "Shortenin' Bread".  But that might be it.

I've always thought I heard Brian in the middle part of "Baby Blue."  Right after the "I dream of you..." part at 1:44 it really sounds like him quoting his vocal scat from the tag of "Forever."  The vocal sounds slightly ragged enough, but the timbre of the vocals really sounds right to me.  Sounds similar to his vocals on MIU.

Hey gsmile...

I thought that too, was ready to swear it was Brian on the "Baby Blue" 2nd verse...Alan Boyd proved me wrong by playing me a mix with the vocal isolated.  It's Carl.

I figured it was probably just Carl, but maaaan, does he ever do a good imitation of his brother!
