Very interesting information. Thanks Mr Desper.

Have found myself checking the ol' podcast for the latest ep since Sunday night. Refresh... refresh... refresh...


We had to skip a week because we were on tour but we recorded a new one tonight and I'll have it up on Monday!  Sorry for the delay and thanks for listening.

I thought that was the case. Just letting you know you're in demand Smiley

Digging Sail On. I'm liking that they alternate between episodes based on albums and episodes based on other aspects of the band. I hope they keep it going long enough, to the point where they've run out of albums to dissect and start delving deeper into any old subject that takes their fancy and hopefully include special guests.

<< hear the other members (and Desper even) step up a bit more in the studio (Carl producing I Can Hear Music) if audio of this exists.>>

The Unsurpassed Masters boot series includes audio from the "I Can Hear Music" sessions - Carl laying down the initial track with Dennis, then some overdubs including one featuring Carl, Dennis, Bruce, and Mike Kowalski.

I think I have that somewhere, will definitely have to find it and give it a listen. But yes, more of that kind of stuff would be amazing.

What are we expecting or hoping for from a 1968 based release?

Looking at the Bellagio site (http://esquarterly.com/bellagio/gigs68.html), 1968 contained all the sessions for Friends *and* 20/20... and more. That's a fair whack of stuff. I am looking forward to some different mixes (instrumental, a capella), different takes etc. but I'd really love to hear some long form session recordings to hear where Brian was at and perhaps hear the other members (and Desper even) step up a bit more in the studio (Carl producing I Can Hear Music) if audio of this exists.

Well done.

However, 'How She Boogalooed It' is awesome.
8  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Beach Boys Wild Honey(Sunshine Tomorrow) 2CD Set? on: July 05, 2017, 05:12:53 AM
Does anybody else think "Untitled (Redwood)" might have been an early take for Time to Get Alone?  Given that the song was intended for Redeood, it makes sense.  I hummed the verse melody over it and it certainly fits.

Hey, I've always thought that. In fact I am surprised by it being titled Untitled (Redwood) on the new release.
Here's a demonstration of how it fits that I just whipped up... https://youtu.be/KAqmMjUoodU

9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Nashville band Natural Child's BB inspired tune on: November 01, 2016, 05:13:07 AM
One of my favorite bands is this low-down, boogie-woogie, Nashville band Natural Child. Their latest album Okey Dokey has a song called 'Transcendental Meditation' (obviously a big thing in the BB history). Have a listen to the song though, there are definitely elements of 'I Just Got My Pay'. First time I heard the song I noticed the very first line is "Well I'm savin' up my money", which had me thinking "I like spendin' my money, and I like havin' a good time...". Whether you hear it or not, good tune.

Pretty harsh article. Seems like this person had already made up their mind before reading the book.

Very cool interview. The excerpts from the '88 interview with Brian were... classic Brian
14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The great lost Dennis Wilson 1965 lead vocal. For what song? on: May 02, 2015, 06:37:42 PM
I can hear Dennis doubling the verses too. It's hard to hear Dennis clearly under the reverb. His voice is definitely a lot quieter than Brian's for the most part but it pops out more on those phrase ending syllables that people mentioned... or in some cases it sound like his voice is boosted or replaces Brian's altogether.
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Combining albums as a Two-fer. on: April 16, 2015, 05:28:36 AM
Surfer Girl / All Summer Long

My favorite of the surf / car albums.  That would be a killer 2-fer. 


I have this twofer in the shape of a double cassette. It's a good one.
16  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Tobias Jesso Jr. (serious Dennis Wilson vibes... chills) on: February 19, 2015, 06:34:33 AM
Ok. This guys album is out soon. I'm picking up strong Dennis Wilson vibes... especially thematically on the song Hollywood. Really great songwriters still exist. Do yourself a favour.

I'd get rid of Heroes and Villains and Good Vibrations as I've always felt they just don't belong. I'm gonna start it off with You're Welcome just for the fun of it. It's a 21 minute trip.

I love the song "Dennis" is playing to Karen, which was written especially for the movie. It is just beautiful and I really could see Dennis writing something like this.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RaugccN6njk


I hear shades of "Holy Man" in that snippet. Part of the verse, part of the "and you can follow" chorus.

“The Beach Boys Live In Sacramento 1964” also released.
https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/beach-boys-live-in-sacramento/id942017956

That's been booted heaps but is this the first official release?
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: WIBNTLA Reviews on: August 23, 2013, 11:19:01 PM
The song rules! It's classic Dennis and with amazing 1971 production values. Who is on drums? Dennis or Kowalski - the drums are awesome!
It definitely would've made Surf's Up a better album. Take A Load Off Your Feet (especially) and Student Demonstration Time don't fit too well for me. I don't really dig Disney Girls either - Bruce is a bit too twee/naff/square for me. Sometimes I have time for it though.

Although this isn't accurate at all - I've been listening this as a possible first album from DW.

23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Would Dennis have been a good frontman? on: May 28, 2013, 06:11:10 PM
Dennis fronting his own band on a Pacific Ocean Blue tour would've worked. Even if he just stood there and sang into the mic (like when he would do "You are so beautiful") or singing from behind the piano - that woulda been a spectacle. He wouldn't have been a camp or showy front man (like love, jagger or mercury), I think crowds would have accepted him on the basis of just being a strong presence.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: New Beach Boys 2012 Remasters! on: May 14, 2013, 05:20:17 PM
I'm not usually a guy to buy a different copy of an album if I already own it but the other day I was listening on my headphones to C&TP straight after playing a Frank Zappa album from the same time period and the difference in sound quality was like night and day. The Beach Boys album sounded so quiet and muffled by comparison. A nicely remastered C&TP and also Holland (which is very murky in places) is something I'd very much want to own.
If you think the remastered CATP is quiet and muffled, then you ought to hear the Epic/Caribou CD release, or even worse, the original Brother/Reprise LP. It's just a bad sounding album.

I love the sound of this album. It's amazing!

Good listening for the first 9 tracks.
