I hope they bring that show to Atlanta and add "Winter Symphony" and "Morning Christmas" to the setlist!

Here's the Atlanta setlist:

1. Surfin' (with Al on standup bass)
2. Surfin' Safari
3. Surfer Girl
4. Don't Worry Baby
5. I Get Around (segueing into...)
6. Little Deuce Coupe
7. Sloop John B
    a. Kingston Trio version first
    b. BB version, with a lovely acapella reprise of the first verse
    c. a verse from the SBJ book version (audience prompt)
8. God Only Knows (Matt on lead, with Carl pics on the vid screen)
9. California Girls
10. Good Vibrations
11. Lookin' at Tomorrow
12. Vegetables
13. Heroes & Villains
14. California Saga / California
15. A Postcard from California (Matt sang Glen Campbell's part)

Encore:
16. Surfin' USA
17. Barbara Ann
18. Help Me Rhonda

In between "Vegetables" and H&V, Al sang a snippet of one of the BB's TM songs while talking about the Maharishi. I get the two songs confused, maybe someone else remembers which one he sang.

No merch table last night (the merch didn't get shipped in time), so it was a free-for-all post-show rush to the front of the stage for autographs and selfies.

A fun show in Atlanta tonight. They were loose, but sounded good. We had a good time -- lots of hardcore fans there who love the music. No "Santa Ana Winds," but we got "Lookin' at Tomorrow" and "Vegetables." Al played the guitar solos at this show. I can post a setlist tomorrow.

"Good Timin'" got some airplay in the greater Atlanta area market, but it was limited to Adult Contemporary stations.

It's OK, only about 5 chapters or so, more like an extended article.
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Al Jardine - The Unsung Hero of BASS GUITAR on: February 22, 2018, 10:42:55 AM
I saw Al playing bass with the BBs on at least one number in Dec. 1984.

Here's how I see it -- that 45 is from 1966, long before lawsuits and credit corrections.

Back to on-topic discussion -- a new Brian, Al and Blondie date has been announced:

May 5 -- Orillia, Ontario at the Casino Rama Resort
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Remembering Carl on: February 05, 2018, 08:29:19 PM
I don't like to commerate dates of demise, preferring to celebrate birthdays instead. Hard to believe it's been 20 years that we've been without Carl.

I still love and miss the man -- he was finest kind. Carl Wilson never met a stranger, as the old saying goes.

15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What One Question Would You Ask Mike in an Interview? on: January 27, 2018, 09:40:12 AM
Why didn't you keep playing (and learning to play) the saxophone?
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Al Jardine - 2018 Tour Thread - Postcards Storytellers Tour on: January 24, 2018, 09:01:22 AM
Just heard from a friend in MN, who went to last night's show. He and his wife give it a thumbs up. They were sitting right next to the stage.

I didn't see this in other reports -- my friend said that Al and co. passed out carrots to the audience to chomp on during "Vegetables."

Interesting -- Brian's also doing some non-PS shows:

An Atlanta gig -- yes! Anybody know when public tickets go on sale?

I don't know about "bad terms", but Carl and Brian seemed to have a strained/awkward relationship throughout the 90s (and late 80s for that matter).

I think it's a myth to say they were fully estranged. "Bad terms" is a tougher term to parse one way or the other.

But "often strained" seems like a good term to used based on the extant information. I think Landy was a big part of what messed up their relationship. Not the only cause, but a major cause.

Yes, that's my take on it too. Carl (in the late '80s) was very frustrated about Landy keeping him from communicating with Brian.

The Beatles sold more records and got more airplay in 1964, but the Beach Boys dominated my turntable that year.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Thread for various insignificant questions that don't deserve their own thread! on: January 08, 2018, 12:03:40 PM
True, but they made amends before Carl died.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Thread for various insignificant questions that don't deserve their own thread! on: January 07, 2018, 10:33:19 AM
It looks like they used a photo or a scan of the back cover of the LP for the CD booklet, making it at least a second generation of the cover. Reusing images that were dot-screened for printing makes it harder to reprint with more dot-screening, resulting in a lower-quality image.

There are tricks to alleviate some of the dot-screen images in Photoshop nowadays, but they weren't necessarily availble for older reissues.

I've heard this track, but while the vocal sounds a little "Carl-esque," it doesn't sound like Carl himself to me.

Mike Love has an article in this month's Smithsonian magazine, which focuses on the year 1968. Mike's article, as you might expect, is about TM and his visit to Rishikesh:
