351  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Touring Lineup 1971/1972-1974 on: October 17, 2017, 01:24:12 PM

Was Ed Carter in the band full-time during the 1971-1973 Blondie era? My recollection is that he was usually if not always there. He usually swapped between lead guitar and bass as well.

I'm curious how much those sorts of instrument swaps were a free-for-all, or if the backing guys would basically defer to the "main" guys and kind of play whatever was left over. It was definitely a cool era for the band, when backing guys and BBs were all swapping lead vocals and instruments, and sometimes doubling up (e.g. Bobby Figueroa and Ricky, etc.).

I know in the later era in the late 70s and early 80s, they tried a few times to have another bass player (Joe Chemay, Ernie Knapp) which allowed Ed Carter to basically go guitar full-time. (Of course, in the Knapp era Ed Carter was basically taking *Carl's* place as far as lead guitar was concerned). Then, in later years Carter was almost exclusively on bass, only doing a few leads (like "Summer in Paradise") where Billy would take over on bass.



Thanks for the info everyone. Hey Jude, Ed Carter is someone who confused me because Wikipedia implied he only played rhythm guitar before Carl left. I only knew of Barbara Ann from Knebworth 1980 where he did play lead. I'm just starting to find full concerts on YouTube.

As we all know, Blondie Chaplin played guitar and bass for The Beach Boys, and Ricky Fataar played drums, guitar, and flute. So how were the arrangements structured (i.e, what did Blondie play lead guitar on; when did Ricky switch from drums to guitar or flute; did Blondie play bass live or only on Holland; did Dennis play drums live when Ricky played guitar or did a percussionist play it because of Dennis' injury)? What was Carl's role in terms of lead guitar with Blondie in the band?

Can someone please remind me of the name of the girl who currently plays in Brian's band?
She used to play with Heart.

I can't find anything online with names of the current line-up.


I can tell you it's at least:
Probyn Gregory - guitars, electro-theremin, trumpet, trombone
Nicky Walusko - guitars
Paul Von Mertens - saxophones, flutes, harmonicas
Mike D'Amico - drums
Bob Lizik - bass
Debbie Shair - keyboards
Nelson Bragg - percussion
Darian Sahanaja - keyboards, mallets (but there wa a substitute I can't remember the name of who did at least the New Bedford show this year and probably a lot of other shows because people keep saying that Darian has had other commitments)

plus Blondie and Al

Vale and Hickory Violet,

I am very new to the board and am just getting into deep tracks and "deep facts." I had no idea of the Dumb Angel-Smile connection. Thanks for the info!

I knew I wouldn't be able to get Brian's signature, unfortunately.  Sad

More indication that this is just a fan. Really the only detail left to pursue is whether there's anything of interest on the small number of intriguingly-titled tapes.

Some of this would be answered if we knew a precise date, because I would tend to doubt *anybody* would have Smile outtakes in their collection in 1973.

It would be nice if someone could track this "fan" down and just ask about those tapes. No names needed.

And once again, even if the guy has nothing of interest but one single 1974 St. Paul soundboard tape, that would be cool to hear!


My best guess: It's a fan, and the St. Paul tape is probably the only thing (along with perhaps the one or two other live tapes) that might be of interest in 2017. I'm guessing the other stuff is essentially very elaborate forms of the "fan mix tape." If the pic comes from the very late 70s or early 80s (and let us remember that the "work" done for this guy could have been done in the early-mid 70s, but this pic could still be from late 70s or very early 80s), then stuff like the "Dumb Angel" tape could just be a dub of the earliest "Smile" boots.

Obviously, it's easy to assume this pic comes from 1974 or 75 at the latest as it doesn't have stuff from 15BO or later. But who knows? The later 70s stuff might be on another shelf. Or maybe the guy just stopped dubbing stuff after that.

Maybe at this point it might be easier to track down Mike or Al and ask them if they remember a friend/fan from the St. Paul area who might have somehow procured a few rare tapes.

1. Didn't Brian supposedly record some country album in the early 70's? He was asked to or something? Ok that may be false but I definitely read it somewhere. Could "Dumb Angel" be this country album?

2. Isn't it possible for a superfan, not to get tapes, but to know the Beach Boys? Aren't a couple of superfans responsible for getting Landy out of Brian's life? May not be true, but I read that on the sometimes-true website called Wikipedia.

My question was buried in discussion, which I found very interesting though  Smiley

But...since I don't know how to delete a post (if that's possible?)...here's a "re-post"  LOL



Al and Probyn meeting fans after a gag. Al briefly mentions he wanted to do more "Love You" songs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2imK2elVfs

Brian and Blondie back in LA

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiUXyh4kNSc



That was a LOT of people waiting after the show!!! When I met Al after the Montgomery College concert, I had to walk with him from the door to the bus to get my photo signed because he was in such a hurry...he signed my photo by balancing it upon his carry-out container he was holding!  LOL  Nice as could be, but he definitely did not have mingling time like he did here.
I'll be seeing Brian, Al, and Blondie at the Zeiterion in New Bedford, MA. How often is it to run into either Al and/or Blondie after a show? Where would they be? Should I risk bringing my copy of Pet Sounds to try to have Al sign it?

Thanks!


363  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Who Played on “Holland”? on: September 24, 2017, 02:23:38 PM
Are any of these credits on Beach Boys albums before 15 Big Ones? Or has session info (other than lead vocals) been found through musician union/session documents and research for books?

Thanks!

Shut Down Volume 2- No more Dave, Al is back full time

I was under the impression that David was, in fact, on a few of the Vol. 2 tunes.  There was some overlap here wasn't there?

You may be right about that. Dave has always said that he played on the first 5 Beach Boys albums. But there's no indication from any source I have that Dave is on the Shut Down 2 album. I wish somebody would set the record straight.

I always thought the Al to Dave to Al transition in the early years was one of the more murky parts of the early BB.

There wouldn't seem to be any more information on David's departure than that recorded in The Lost Beach Boy (p. 98 to end of chapter). Unless more has come to light since then (2007)...

A 10th anniversary version is being announced soon so we'll have to see!

Hi,

I've been a Beach Boys fan for years, but I'm only getting into deep tracks and deep facts now.  Do any members have recommendations of threads or Beach Boy-related books for me?

Thanks
