1  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: The Beatles Survivor #11: The Beatles (the White Album part 1) on: Today at 01:29:39 AM
I'm surprised that no one except me has voted against The Continuing Story of... thus far, since I've thought it was generally considered as one of the worst songs on White Album, mainly due to Yoko's annoying appearance.  

Here, another vote of mine goes for it.

I feel the same way towards the song I'm voting against - which hasn't really had any votes against it aside from mine
Perhaps that's because it was a singe and therefore many consider it as a better one from the album.

Brian invented mope rock.  It surely hurt the bands overall popularity in the long run....

You should change your name to Septic Tank, as most of your posts are full of sh*t.
Hey, I think your post here is a little unreasonable.

I also disagree with his view, and I can see why you wanted to tell him such a thing, but there's no use making fun of him with words that imply himself or his point of view is like excrement.

Please don't insult anyone, or in other words, treat anyone poorly with what they have said. If you think he's getting out of line, you have rights to warn or ban on him, since you're a mod. Otherwise, you should reply and show your disagreement in politer way.

2Watamushi - add "5" to TTTAAC. It's the best track with Al's great lead! 3D He really shines there (as usual).

1 to "Barbara Ann" - the last long sing-song "Baaaa-ba-raaaaaan. You gotta rock it" then banal guitar descending outing's really godawful. I like the live 80s BA.
Done!

15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mark Linnett and Alan Boyd about that 68 package - on: August 16, 2017, 07:58:02 AM

But I really hope they start moving away from an exact chronological/album approach and start looking at what is the BEST material in the vaults to put out there. There are about a THOUSAND outtakes from the 70s that are more interesting than what's left of the 60s.

Strongly disagree!

To each his/her own of course, but there are at least a dozen or more tracks on that "Brother Proposed Bonus Tracks" CD set that interest me more than *another* edit of "Can't Wait Too Long", or "My Little Red Book", and so on. I love all of the tracks of course, and I absolutely support a 68/69 set.

But a demo of "'Til I Die", an extended version of "This Whole World', a pristine mix of "Carry Me Home", and alternate version of "4th of July", and many other tracks need a release and interest me more. Let's also remember that those "Proposed Brother Bonus Tracks" were probably compiled in 1999 or 2000 or so, and there are surely even more things that have been uncovered since then.

But hopefully BRI will put it *all* out, and then we won't have to debate which era deserves an archival release more.
Agreed.

All you more history-minded members, what else can we possibly expect from '68 set? The Friends sessions, early 20/20 sessions? What unreleased songs did they do that year? The Letter, what else?
First of all, we can expect both the whole Friends and 20/20 sessions, since the sessions of the later were over by the end of 1968.

Other stuff we can expect is:
・Early version of All I Wanna Do (Instrumental)
・Early version of Walkin' (instrumental)
・Some of Friends outtakes: My Little Red Book, Our Happy Home, You're As Cool As You Can Be etc
・Live highlights from 1968 (including unreleased live cuts around the era of Live in London- it was recorded in December, 1968)
・The definitive edit of Can't Wait Too Long
・Perhaps 70s remakes of Friends tracks, as related stuff

Overall, these would surely make a pleasant 2CD (or so) collection for us to listen to.

Don't forget the definitive edit of Old Folks at Home/Ol' Man River.
Yep, maybe.

19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Did Al Jardine die in 1965 only to be replaced by a lookalike ? on: August 16, 2017, 03:38:26 AM
I think Al kicked it in the early 1970s. Because the guy who brilliantly produced Loop de Loop and (unless it's Brian, there are different credits) Susie Cincinnati is not the same guy who co-produced MIU.
'Al' during MIU era could be 'the third Al'. Probably 'the second Al' , who helped the group since 1965, had to leave the group in early 1970s.
