Mark Linett hinted in a Facebook comment a few months ago that there would be a follow-up set in December...on someone's post about the box set (I can't remember who), he commented "and more."

I guess nothing came of this...?

Iíve looked again to try to find the post but I cannot find it. I thought it was one of Ed Roach or Howie Edelsonís FB posts, but maybe I was mistaken as to as the original poster.


EDIT: I also cannot find the studio recordings on this Bandcamp page - only 4 live shows from 1971.

How 'bout an executive summary for those of us without a facebook account?

The link doesnít work for you? I thought direct links worked even without an account, but maybe I am wrong. Brief summary is she says sheís on bass for all of Pet Sounds, except Here Today, I Know Thereís An Answer, and I Just Wasnít Made for Those Times. She still claims to be on Surfiní USA and I Get Around, based on the covers of those songs she played on. In My Room features her as well and is on Pet Sounds - did she play on a cover of this one too? She doesnít make any of her Motown claims here but says her book is coming soon and will set the record straight. ďCarl only played on 2-3 of these.Ē Barbara Ann was one of the bandís earlier singles, according to her, and features The Beach Boys and Hal Blaine. Itís an interesting post, to say the least.

Joshilyn, do you think sheís accurate regarding (at least some of) the Dano vs Fender comments she makes here?

Iím going to revive this thread for a second to say some things I forgot to say before the board temporarily went down. Didnít Brian and Al already shoot down a new album? Second, if LPR hadnít been given a soundtrack, was some of the newer material technically ďavailableĒ to reuse for a possible full Brian solo or BB album?

I also agree with the statement that a 5-CD set has already been released: maybe theyíll repress MIC? Thatíd be nice - I wasnít as big a fan as I am now, and Iíd like to get a copy soon.
55  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Welcome Back! on: January 15, 2022, 11:38:21 AM
Iím so happy weíre back!! My first order of business is to find out who the heck decided to make the LPR soundtrack digital and streaming only and why? But Iím just happy to be back, Iíve missed this place so much.

Its being billed as Ď60 Years Of The Sounds Of Summerí with associated artwork.

"The Beach Boys will be performing at the Dominion Energy Center in Richmond.

The Beach Boys have sold over 100 million records worldwide and have received more than 33 RIAA Platinum and Gold record awards."

Congrats to Mike and his touring band for selling 100 million records!
Firstly,  LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL
Secondly, Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
Thirdly,  

It just reads like all these same guys who will be on-stage are also all the same guys who sold 100 million records. Honestly I don't think a whole too many people who go to these shows know (or even care) about that. But it still seems like false advertising (even though it technically isn't). People will go and hopefully see a good show and many people may be introduced to a whole new world of music they didn't know existed. I guess I just wish that we didn't live in a world where The Beach Boys who tour aren't the actual Beach Boys (but instead they are a band with two actual Beach Boys who tour as The Beach Boys) while two other actual Beach Boys aren't a part of the touring band who go by the name The Beach Boys...I just wish The Beach Boys were The Beach Boys without an asterisk attached to the name.

Agreed, I hate having to explain which half of The Beach Boys Iím going to see. This is probably a question for another topic, but I wonder how long could the reunion have lasted if Mike wasnít Mike.

How come the 60s version of "Back Home" is not available anymore on Amazon or Spotify? It's the only song off the Made in California set that I can't play or buy. Any infos on that? I would love to hear this song again.

Interesting - currently, it still works for me on Spotify, but that may be because I ďlikedĒ it to my library.

Sorry for the bump, but I was watching this recently, and I thought I might have another example of Brian reusing that chord progression with a different bass line (I didn't check with my guitar, though, so I'm probably wrong).  Would Stevie be an example of this?
60  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Thread for various insignificant questions that don't deserve their own thread! on: October 21, 2021, 07:45:34 PM
For anyone interested, here is a Google Drive link to the "rough cut" of the 2011 "Do It Again" video.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1It5pN17MHITF3sC3MO5l6Tn1Bx-ZVl89/view?usp=sharing

Haven't had a chance to watch it yet, positivemusic, but thanks a lot for posting this!!
61  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Which singles are unique mixes, different edits and new recordings (vs LP)? on: October 10, 2021, 09:14:16 PM
I canít speak to a lot of these, but the single version of California Saga: California is faster and has some more vocals from Brian. It also has horn overdubs, and there might be other changes I canít remember at the moment.
62  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2021/2022 Tour Thread on: October 06, 2021, 02:54:38 PM
Just curious, any reason as to why Brian sang the 1st verse of Rhonda? Don't think I've ever seen that in all the years Al has been touring with him....it's Al's signature BB song.

What?? Seems like poor Al is getting shoved out this year vocally.
63  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 60th Anniversary Tour on: October 02, 2021, 06:28:49 PM
I think the chances of such a tour are very poor to begin with. As for The Honeys, theyíve been retired from performing for many years, at least Marilyn has, and it might also bring back painful memories with the way her and Brianís marriage dissolved.

The Honeys performed a show in August. They still perform shows, just not regularly.

Yes, and I think they did that California Saga benefit a couple years ago, and they did something over Zoom last year.
64  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What songs did Brian play drums / percussion on? on: October 01, 2021, 01:25:38 PM
These are the songs that I remember that Brian plays drums on.

The Wanderer (live)
Sandy She Needs Me (?)
Funky Pretty
You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'
about 2/3rds of Love You (all except Good Time, Honkin' Down the Highway, Mona, I Wanna Pick You Up, Ding Dang, and The Night Was So Young)
65  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Would-Be Hits on: September 14, 2021, 09:52:14 AM
"You Are So Beautiful" [counterfactually] recorded as a single (right after Billy Preston's album-release)! by the Beach Boys with a Dennis Wilson co-writer's credit (just by adding an extra verse). Beating Joe Cocker to it - and with a Dennis lead vocal just as soulful' and raspy as Joe's???

That's part of my alternate history/albums ideas to some extent.  Even without an extra verse (but Dennis still deserves credit of course), you could theoretically put a live version on an alternate 15BO.  My concept (currently, it changes all the time) tries to do 7 originals, 7 covers, and YASB - which kind of does a little bit of both.
66  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Game-Time: Can You Guess The Song? on: September 09, 2021, 05:37:00 PM
I'm a little embarrassed by my score in the first game (the only one I've done so far) - 7/15.
67  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2021/2022 Tour Thread on: September 02, 2021, 05:51:52 PM
As a fan who has attended their shows, this is how I see it: Brian Wilson & Al Jardine, with special guest Blondie Chaplin, backed by one of the best bands in the business.

Brian and Al reconnecting at El Camino College in 1961 was ultimately the genesis of the entire Beach Boy thing.  As such, I think it's really great to see the two of them together on stage after all these years.

Agreed, but I still think Al should receive co-billing.

Since I haven't seen B&A since 2017, can someone remind me which songs are Al leads in this tour (besides Help Me Rhonda, of course)?

Really don't agree with sending Brian out on tour given current circumstances

I agree. Having Brian, Al, and Blondie out there is pretty scary to me, for their health and for the audiences. Even if Brianís singing better, I donít feel safe enough to go to the closest show near me.

I donít want to offend Howie or Joshilyn, but I remember c-man saying there were two attempts at recording a basic track for Susie Cincinnati. Maybe youíre each recalling a different version?
69  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Thread for various insignificant questions that don't deserve their own thread! on: August 23, 2021, 10:23:36 PM
Remember me? Smiley

Anyways I got one question for today. I've wondered about Feel Flows (box set) lately and I just want to know... the organ on Seasons In The Sun?

I canít give you the organ credit, but c-man has posted before (I can grab the link for you if you want) if that it otherwise was a Wrecking Crew instrumental performance: Sonny Curtis (the same as from The Crickets?) and Mike Deasy on guitar, Lyle Ritz on bass, Earl Palmer on drums, and Virgil Evans on trumpet

Youíre correct with Blondie - more details can be found here:

71  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Bruce falsettos on: August 13, 2021, 06:18:59 PM
As far as I know, Bruce still does the FFF coda falsetto, but he doesnít do the chorus falsetto.

This is slightly off-topic, but Iíve never understood why Al was still doing Barbara Ann in 1980. While he sounds good on others, he was just too shot by that point for that song. Bruce or Bobby Figueroa should have taken over.
72  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Unreleased Songs Masterlist: Material to expect from further archival releases on: August 11, 2021, 08:02:35 PM
Thanks jiggy22 for the list.

All material related to the proposed BROTHERS, COUSINS AND FRIENDS project

Forgive my ignorance and/or inattention, but this is the first I've read about this project. Any background on this would be appreciated.

This was a proposed follow-up to KTSA. The board has a couple other threads on it; I could only find the link to one which I will put below. Like HeyJude, I have a strong interest in this era. Maybe itís because there is all this interesting unheard material. Maybe itís because they had 5 years of no albums. Maybe itís because of how great the touring band sounded in 1980, but itís just really interesting to me.

http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php?topic=2293.5


I donít want to derail this topic more, but in typical Beach Boys fashion, couldnít they have used outtakes from previous albums? Or even try to use some of Dennisí unused songs from Bambu? I think thatíd give them at least two albums worth of material (in varying quality) that they could narrow down to make something.

EDIT 10/13/21: My excitement and fast typing resulted in some embarrassing typos that have now been fixed.
73  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Unreleased Songs Masterlist: Material to expect from further archival releases on: August 05, 2021, 07:31:39 PM
HeyJude, thanks for responding to most of my questions. Do you think my theory about the 1981 recording of I Ran (All the Way Home) holds any water?

I'd be surprised if it isn't a cover of the Impalas song. Recorded together with the original version of Sweetie at Rumbo, March 1981.

The demo tape with Brian playing Walking on Water, Sweetie, Rings and Don't Let Her Know is dated October 1986 by a voice on a collector cassette, although the songs are all known to have been written by 1985. It's possible that the date could be a year off. Sweetie is just a case of Brian revisiting an old song.

HeyJude, thanks for responding to most of my questions. Do you think my theory about the 1981 recording of I Ran (All the Way Home) holds any water?

Can't say I have any specialized knowledge on that one; I think your theory sounds quite plausible.

You never know, though. We later found out two *completely* different Brian songs called "Lay Down Burden" existed, and somehow they wrote during the "No Pier Pressure" era a song called "He Come Down" that *isn't* a cover of the "So Tough" song? They did "Where I Belong" in 1985 and apparently Brian has a brand new song for his new documentary titled "Right Where I Belong." There are many examples of course (All I Want To Do/All I Wanna Do).

So there is precedent for very specific song titles to reemerge as completely new songs.

Thanks to SaltyMarshmallow, and thanks again to HeyJude for the helpful info/reminders.

They sounded bad, even the younger guys and Christian in particular. Listen to the show, and what this great band has accomplished in the past.

I havenít listened to this show yet (I will). But I will say that from what I saw on the 4th (via CNNís special), Mike, Bruce, and Christian all sounded horrible. I thought Ike sounded pretty good, though. I couldnít pick out Scott Totten or John Cowsill in the vocal mix but Iím stilll trying to train myself to hear individual parts of the harmony stacks.
