Whatever happened to the Durrie Parks acetates on eBay? Been meaning to make a topic on it ..

They were purchased by a private collector, and are basically unheard other than a tantalizing snippet at the very, very tail end of Wake the World Friends set.

I own that. Where at, exactly in the digital set is it? I really need to make a topic about this...

There wasn't a SMiLE copyright (digital only) release in 2016 or 2017 but we got a huge 5 CD box packed to the 80 minute mark on each disc a few years prior which sounds like what they are planning to do with Feel Flows.  My only gripe with that was hearing of a 6th disc worth of music being dropped from the box (could have been internet rumors).  They could have done a digital release with that extra SMiLE material plus a stereo mix of the album.  But next Friday could still be the day for some 1969 stuff.

Probably wishful thinking on my part, but I'd like to think there will be some sort of supplemental Smile Sessions release in the future.  Mark and Alan did a wonderful job on the 2011 box, and they and Capitol undoubtedly intended it to be the definitive treatment of its subject.   And yet, I, probably like many Smile fans, have never really shed the idea that there's still some unreleased Smile something out there that'd be worth hearing.   And, there's also the lingering fantasy that audio reels from the David Oppenheim film will finally turn up and reveal some missing material.

Was he aware that he was terminally ill at that point?

I hear Terry's voice in the choruses of "Strange Things Happen". He's credited with vocals on the album, so I'd say that's one that he definitely sang on. Maybe "Hot Fun", too.

I think the band, via sleeve credits and some interviews, have indicated Melcher sings some backing vocals on some stuff. There are a ton of non-BBs on backing vocals on tracks here and there. Foskett, Baker, Matt Jardine, and going farther back there's Becher, Toni Tenille, and a bunch of others.

But non-members singing full lead vocal lines is much rarer, and there's also some scattered precedents where the band deleted non-band member lead parts and replaced them with BB lead lines.

What does Toni sing on?

The brutally fast fade on Your Summer Dream, a personal favorite song of mine. On they surpassed masters outtakes it goes on longer. I even enjoy the instrumental jamming the band does  I wish that went longer. I canít get enough of that song and then it ends.

The horrendous backing vocals on wontcha come out tonight. They sound like crows!

Mikes off key vocals on Santa Claus is coming to town. Right when he enters. I think he had a cold or something but sheesh. Brian just do it or give it away!

Jackís singing on a day in the life of a tree. I DO love the song. But I heard Dennis almost took the vocal and Iíd kill for that.
Especially because I love his vocals during that period and Van Dyke is on there. Can you imagine Dennis and Van dyke around a mic at this time in their career? Can there BE more opposite people in a room together?

Sigh. Please. Donít ban me. I legitimately enjoy the instrumental Problem Child.

You posted your comment in your native language explicitly as Ďrevengeí or to prove a point and goad a response. I stand by my reply to you - then you cast blame and say itís MY fault, and that -I- shouldnít have butted in on a public message board. Meaning you have some sort of score to settle with someone. Ergo, give me a break. If youíre mad at someone and trying to prove a point, PM them or take it to admins.

Give me a break.

So... Our New Home is similar to workshop from Smile. Havenít seen anyone say that or did I miss it?

I assume Dennis was not here due to his inconsistency?

Youíre correct that David could not have played keys - by al was quite proficient at bass and could have been relegated to that, david was probably a better guitarist than Carl by 65. His solo work shows that.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Thread for various insignificant questions that don't deserve their own thread! on: March 27, 2018, 12:51:05 PM
Why did they not ask for David Marks to return instead of hiring Bruce to replace Brian/Glen?

I know David created his own demise, but I think that him leaving was truly a huge misfortune for the Boys to lose David.

He seemed to be the earliest member to have a desire to create songs, and other than Dennis and Carl, Al and Bruce had about 3 songs in them the rest of their career. David could have helped them a lot I feel.

I believe I have read Dennis was a fan of Star Trek

Also, can someone link me to the long YouTube video where Bruce mocks Friends? I am on mobile and cannot quote the poster who said this early in the first page.
