Good to see Brian and Carl together.

It's just a tragedy what's being done to the work of these artists. No matter if the Beach Boys will also get this treatment or not (I hope not!).

Or maybe he could just keep rehashing the Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary!  Grin

By the way, well done in shoehorning Mike into a thread about Record Store day.

How about a 50th anniversary Stack-O-Tracks release? Eh? Eh? Anyone?


Maybe that would be an idea for Mike to rehash the "50 the anniversary" yet another time. 50 Years of "Stack-o-tracks" - the complete album live on stage  Grin

So, this is not about the documentary (I guess it will take a while until there are more news about that). But there's a new project that has musicians writing music to some of Johnny's unused lyrics. It's called "Forever words" (a book was already released). Something similar was done for a Hank Williams sr. project years ago.

someone played the drums instead of Dennis according this photo of 1966.

Note that in 1967 The boys didn't played  a song of Dennis.
This is totally off topic, but I never knew that the beach boys played a super bowl half time show in 1987! It looks like Brian was there, too.


I believe it was billed as Americas Band or something like that, Dean was there as well.Story has it that the first Al knew of it was when he saw it on TV

I think the year you mean is 1998, not 1987.

http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,7168.0.html
Nope, read it closely.

Ok to clarify. 1987 pre-game show as the Beach Boys with Brian.

I always wondere why Brian and Mike wore pyjamas during that performance

Not necessarily. In '66 they played "You've got to hide your love away" which was just Dennis and Al I believe. But maybe there was another song as well played during that time?
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: My website-update on: February 12, 2018, 09:27:27 AM
Thanks for the heads-up!
While browsing through 1963, I stopped at the show from September 21, 1963. There's a picture of Carl, Dennis, Mike and Al. You write that Brian wasn't there. Do we know if David therefor took over the drums while Dennis was upfront, just like Brian did?


Yes, he did. I have a photo from a 1963 show with David on drums. We'll likely put that in the updated edition of Davids book.


Thanks Jon! Very interesting. If I'm not mistaken that makes that in the early years (before they added other musicians) it was either Brian or David playing drums when Dennis came upfront to sing his song. After Brian left the touring group in late '64 Dennis played sang and played drums at the same time ("Do you wanna dance") or came upfront and no one played drums ("You've got to hide your love away"). Or did Carl or Bruce take over the drums as well sometimes?


Carl Wilson mimed drums in tv apparitions


Yeah, that was for "Never learn not to love". But I was talking about the live shows before they had any backing musicians, so 1961- ca. 1967
I remember that picture. But I wonder why there wasn't a mic stand around.

You know I have a fairly lengthy account of that concert who took photos of it (one of which is used by me)I'll see if he mentioned it. He told me that he was into surf instrumentals and his favorite moment in the concert was when they played surf jam from their album


Thanks, that would be interesting! I love the studio recording of "Surf jam".

I got through with 1964, what an exciting time it must've been!

In all seriousness, Id love if a contest were held like this if they played near me.   If getting a front row seat when the answer is pretty much in the "puzzle," is that easy, I'm in..

I hope they have a giveaway for the ostrich festival too. Like a "Where's Waldo" puzzle where you have to find Mike and Bruce in a herd of 500 ostriches.

What’s up with this band and livestock? Didn’t they play a revolving stage at a rodeo a few years ago? Now they’ve got an ostrich gig. Really wonderful the band name is literally being dragged through the mud.
Obviously you have forgotten the episode of Full House where Kimmy Gibbler got an ostrich.




Also ostrichs are a great audience, you know

Feb 14 1966-work was done on I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times and the next day they worked on ‘That’s Not Me’.  On Feb 16 1966-they worked on Wouldn’t It Be Nice, You Still Believe In me, and I Know There's An Answer.  During the sessions, Bruce went and met Elvis who was recording nearby.



According to elvisrecordings he was working on the soundtrack to his "Spinout" movie at Radio Recorders. One of the lowpoints of his career. Only two tracks recorded on the 16th are somewhat enjoyable. Frustrated with the material he mostly didn't record live with the band in the studio (as he used to) and only overdubbed some lackluster singing on the previous soundtrack. For the "Spinout"-album though he worked again live with the band. Best thing about the movie: It features some nice guitars.

The mentioned two tracks from Febr. 16th as they appear in the movie:

Not long after this, in May, Presley would start work on his Grammy award winning Gospel album "How great thou art", his first non-soundtrack work in years.
18  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Elvis Presley - The Searcher Soundtrack 3-Disc-Edition!! on: February 07, 2018, 08:01:38 AM
And yet here's even more:



Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, and RCA Records will release Elvis Presley: The Searcher (The Original Soundtrack) on Friday, April 6.

The musical companion to the two-part documentary directed by Emmy® and Grammy® award winner Thom Zimny, Elvis Presley: The Searcher (The Original Soundtrack) will be available in digital and physical configurations including an 18-track definitive soundtrack, a 2LP gatefold 12″ vinyl edition and a 3CD collectible deluxe box set.

Elvis Presley: The Searcher (The Original Soundtrack) includes the 18 essential Elvis Presley hits, powerful performances, and rare alternative versions of songs at the musical core of the groundbreaking three-hour two-part film which focuses on the development of Elvis’ spellbinding artistry, from his early blues and country roots and influences through his seismic contributions to popular culture to his 1976 recording sessions at the Jungle Room in Graceland. The two-part documentary film, which will premiere in the United States on HBO on April 14, 2018, uses rare footage lensed throughout Elvis’ life and career as a means of exploring Elvis’ singular musical vision in all its complexity.

The 3CD deluxe box set features 37 additional Elvis cuts plus a special disc featuring selections from Mike McCready’s (Pearl Jam) original score for “Elvis Presley: The Searcher”; Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers performing “Wooden Heart”; and the music that inspired Elvis (including R&B and country classics and “Home Sweet Home” sung by his mother, Gladys Presley). The Elvis Presley: The Searcher (The Original Soundtrack) deluxe 3CD set includes a 40-page hardcover book featuring rare photography, liner notes by Warren Zanes, and a director’s note by Thom Zimny.

In his package notes for Elvis Presley: The Searcher (The Original Soundtrack), director Thom Zimny writes, “the soundtrack was in my mind from the beginning. I wasn’t just making a film, I was thinking about the collection of recordings I would gather for a person who saw the film, who wanted to complete the experience, just as I always had. Thankfully, our friends at Sony gave me and the Searcher team the chance to create this collection. It’s been in my mind for years now. To me, this collection is part of the film.”

“So, in this collection, one gets not a Greatest Hits package but a song-by-song, curated portrait of an artist,” writes Warren Zanes in the book featured in Elvis Presley: The Searcher (The Original Soundtrack [Deluxe Box Set]), “….an artist who very consistently and courageously gave himself to his performances, as if in the giving he might find some missing part of himself. The truth in his voice, in the end, was the sound of a searcher. Along the way, he built a catalogue as deep as any found in the broad and beautiful vistas of American music.”

As Bruce Springsteen observes in the documentary, Elvis Presley belonged to a singular category of musicians in the pantheon. “You hear performers in the thrall of the beauty of invention, not knowing quite where they’re going to go, not knowing exactly what they’re doing,” Springsteen said. “Just discovering and doing it literally as the music is being played…. You’re out on the frontier and it’s a very pristine and exciting place to be.”

“You know, God bless him,” said Tom Petty. “He was a light for all of us. We all owe him for going first into battle. He had no road map and he forged a path of what to do and what not to do. And we shouldn’t make the mistake of writing off a great artist because of all the clatter that came later. We should dwell in what he did that was so beautiful and everlasting, which was that great, great music.”

Goodnes, gracious, here's the full 3-disc soundtrack, including a 40 page book!





The new multi-part documentary Elvis Presley: The Searcher, directed by Thom Zimny and airing on HBO on April 14, pushes past the larger-than-life image of The King of Rock and Roll, portraying him instead as a man and an artist "who wanted to heal, to find that thing that was always felt to be missing, and to do it through the music."

The 3CD deluxe edition box set offers an expanded 55-track overview of Elvis' career as heard in the film including familiar hit recordings ("Heartbreak Hotel," "Are You Lonesome Tonight?"), powerful vocal performances ("That's All Right," "Tomorrow Is a Long Time," "Trouble/Guitar Man") and rare outtakes ("Suspicious Minds," "Separate Ways"), plus a bonus disc of additional recordings relevant to the film-including singles that inspired Presley (Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup's original version of "That's All Right," Odetta's gospel version of Bob Dylan's "Tomorrow is a Long Time") and two original instrumental pieces composed for the documentary by Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready.

Elvis Presley: The Searcher (The Original Soundtrack) [Deluxe] includes a 40-page book of photos, liner notes by Warren Zanes, and a producers note from film director Thom Zimny.

Elvis Presley: The Searcher (The Original Soundtrack) is also available on 2LP.

I don't think so. It seems that the early Rock'n'Rollers' releases usually don't get much attention. Here's what I've found on youtube:
