Fourthed.

I really enjoyed reading about how recording works in analog, as well as hearing the audio goodies.

There's another Dennis Wilson who is a country musician -- it's probably that DW.

He's also known to have played the drums on "Do You Wanna Dance" when Dennis sang it at the NY Academy Of Music in early '65.

Another, point on how Al has changed for the better. Wasnít he the champion for deep cuts on the c50 and 1993 tour? Guy raves about 1970s BBS these days...

Yes, Al was the champion for deep cuts, even back in the '80s. I remember telling him after the 1993 Atlanta show about how much I enjoyed hearing them perform "Vegetables," and he just glowed.

I think Al's opinion of the music was constantly evolving, given what he's said about Dennis' stuff, for example.

In the '70s, he was riding on the "straight" plane with Mike to avoid the smoking and substance use on the "party" plane. (As someone who has an allergy to smoke, I understand not wanting to be exposed to secondhand smoke.) It doesn't mean he was opposed to the newer music.

Jack Reiley had his own prejudices and perceptions of what happened, but I think his accounting of events adds to our knowledge. BTW, all of the Reiley-era shows I saw did have people in the audience calling out for the oldies, even the legendary, incredible 1972 Georgia Tech show when they were touring behind Surf's Up.

When the BBs mentioned him at shows in the '70s, they pronounced it "Riley."

I wonder if Sirius could tell that I hit the mute button on my iPad when they played a song I didn't like.  Grin

Surfin' USA (the album) was my first purchase. Surfer Girl had already found its way into our household as a gift.

She's no slouch on piano, either -- Aretha could rock those keys!
16  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Aretha Franklin on: August 16, 2018, 09:26:31 AM
So very sad to hear that Aretha's gone. She's my all-time favorite female singer, one of the great voices.

Brian Wilson posted the following on FB (found it on his website):
"Iím very sad to hear about Aretha Franklin passing. She was one of the greatest and most emotional singers. I used to love listening to her in the sixties but her music is timeless. Love & Mercy to Arethaís family and friends."

That about says it all for me. Rest in peace, Lady Soul...

It's a good one, one of Carl's best guest vocals. I got exposed to "Baby Says No" by a former housemate decades ago who was a Christopher Cross fan.

A more favorable list for the BBs (oddly in reverse order):

HOT 100 TURNS 60! THE TOP 60 DUOS/GROUPS OF ALL TIME, FROM THE BEATLES TO MAROON 5 & MORE
by Xander Zellner
August 2, 2018
The Fab Four, The Rolling Stones & Bee Gees rank at Nos. 1, 2 & 3, respectively.

As we celebrate the Billboard Hot 100's 60th anniversary, Billboard looks at the top-performing duos and groups in the chart's history, dating to its Aug. 4, 1958, inception.   

With a record 20 Hot 100 No. 1s, logged between 1964 and 1970, it should come as no surprise that The Beatles are the No. 1 duo or group, as well as the top act overall. 

The quartet's biggest Hot 100 hit, "Hey Jude," spent nine weeks at No. 1 beginning on Sept. 28, 1968, and ranks at No. 12 on the recap of the chart's all-time top 600 songs. The group is the only act to ever occupy the entire top five of the Hot 100 in a week, having achieved the feat on April 4, 1964, with, in order from Nos. 1 to 5, "Can't Buy Me Love," "Twist and Shout," "She Loves You," "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "Please Please Me."     

Rounding out the top five duos/groups ranking from Nos. 2 through 5, respectively, are The Rolling Stones, Bee Gees, Chicago and The Supremes. At No. 6 is the top-performing duo, Daryl Hall and John Oates. 

Just outside the top 10 is the highest-ranking act whose chart career began in the 2000s: Maroon 5, at No. 11. The Adam Levine-led group's latest hit, "Girls Like You," featuring Cardi B, currently stands at its No. 3 high on the Hot 100. The band has tallied 14 top 10s, including three No. 1s.   

Here's a look at the top-performing duos and groups over the Hot 100's first 60 years.

[...]

10. Carpenters
9. The Beach Boys
8. The Temptations
7. The Four Seasons
6. Hall & Oates
5. The Supremes
4. Chicago
3. Bee Gees
2. The Rolling Stones
1. The Beatles

The Top 60 Duos/Groups of All-Time on the Billboard Hot 100 ranking is based on weekly performance on the Hot 100 from its Aug. 4, 1958, inception through July 21, 2018. All songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with cumulative weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at lower spots earning the least. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, eras are weighted differently to account for chart turnover rates over various periods. Artists are then ranked based on a formula blending performance, as outlined above, of all their Hot 100 chart entries.
