I wonder if Brian and Al, plotting the formation of a group during their time at El Camino College, could have ever imagined that they'd still be playing together 60 (!) years later.

I am very grateful that they are!

I burn my digital purchases to CD. Nowadays, we listen to music more in the car than anywhere else and are trying to find a way to put a 10-disc player in our new vechicle. We still buy a lot of CDs and, when we had our old vechicle with a 10-disc player, it was great to throw in a bunch of our new purchases and listen.

Most of my digital purchases are in Apple's m4a format and the new vehicle's system only plays mp3s. Converting things to play on the car system is a time-consuming pain-in-the @ss. We have Sirius for a three month trial and have no interest in continuing it (or getting any other streaming service). Anyway, CDs serve us best, and there is a single disc player in the car and multi-disc players in our home.

Now, if I can just find a Walkman-type tape player to patch into the new vehicle's sound system.  Grin

The author of the above article seems to be unaware that Brian did a tour with the Zombies last fall.

Agree, marcella27. I don't pick favorites anymore, but both Carl and Al -- great soulful voices and genuinely decent guys.

It was in the first half of 1996. They were gone by the time the BBs played Atlanta in May.

Please, don't release it only to Netflix (which I don't have). At least release it to local cinema art houses, before it goes to streaming and DVD/Blu-Ray.

Thanks for posting the links, HeyJude. This definitely whets the appetite for the full box set.

The new tracks are now available on Amazon and iTunes.

Celebrating today by playing my favorite Carl tracks.

 Love CARL! Listening


Edit: Nice article on Carl and his music, to honor his b-day:

H&V opening tonight's episode of Mr. Robot.

I'll buy digital files, but am not interested in anything that requires me to buy a subscription.

Also waiting for release news, like everyone else.

Bruce is the "keeper" of the harmonies and teaches them to the supporting band guys.

Nice job on the SJB guitars video!
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love's Former Santa Barbara Compound Listed For Sale on: December 04, 2019, 06:07:05 AM
Apparently the current owners are offering the option to buy a part of the estate, as well:

https://www.modbee.com/news/california/article237964319.html

"The listing suggests three ownership options: 100 percent ownership of all structures; 43 percent ownership with exclusive rights to occupy four of the cottages, including Love Cottage; or 14 percent ownership with exclusive right to the 1,510-square-foot, two-bedroom, 3 bath Bliss Cottage."

Back in the '80s, I worked with someone whose husband rented one of those houses on the estate while attending college. Never got a chance to ask him about living there, tho.

I was hoping for an announcement today....

Speechless, and praying for our Jeff.

I believe that EmdeeH said that the Briella article is a different Jeff Foskett.

Yes, that article was about a different guy with the same name.

The Jaws beach was my first thought, as well.
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Campfire Acoustic Session :Endless Summer TV Series on: November 05, 2019, 02:15:22 PM
There even seems to be an additional guitarist who isn’t Jeff, Billy, Al or Carl, in some shots

Looks like their roadie Ab Jackson.

Filmed at Walt Disney World in Florida, outside on the sand between the Grand Floridian and the Pllynesian Village Resort but closest to the Grand Floridina.

That's the location for the "Kokomo" video. The 1989 TV series was shot at Universal Studios in LA, so probably a backlot beach setup for the campfire.

Nick Grillo was the manager during the post-Smile era. I have a letter from him, circa 1968.

Another issue with '60s BB photos is that most fan photos would have been made with cheap Instamatic type cameras, which weren't all that great for stage photography. It was mostly the pros who had better-quality cameras.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Oct 20th. David Leaf .. BW RFH SMiLE performance first ever video showing....!? on: October 24, 2019, 01:09:57 PM
Wonder if David and Brian would consider releasing it as a fundraiser for the BW Scholarship, like PBS does for fundraising.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: If you could go any Beach Boy concert in history on: October 18, 2019, 12:46:42 PM
I'd love to have seen the first round of Beachago shows, otherwise I'd love to see the 1972 Georgia Tech show again.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road (2019 Brent Wilson Documentary) on: October 16, 2019, 01:07:00 PM
Some of us still buy DVDs, especially when it's BB-related.
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What if Yesterday happened with Beach Boys music? on: October 12, 2019, 10:55:08 AM
It's my opinion that Dennis and Carl would still be alive. Assuming that smoking played a huge role in Carl's death - I wonder had he never had the stresses of touring and recording and dealing with fame/chaotic band differences - that he would have smoked a little less than he did.

Now that I've seen the film Yesterday, the film mentions some things that also stopped existing besides the Beatles, including Coca-Cola, Harry Potter books, and cigarettes. So, in the world of Yesterday, there's a good chance that, having never started smoking, Carl Wilson and George Harrison are still alive in that alternate world.
