Not the BBs but this was a true BB-related rarity until I re-released it. In all of my research, I've only found one person who had a copy (listed online) plus I saw it listed on a rare Murry bootleg.

Wow, I'll add that in some way. Some of the lyrics reminded me of "Vegetables" (the part about the vest etc).

Yes, I don't really see them reuniting and going on the road either, although I wouldn't bet on it now that John has gone full establishment including rhinestone jackets, Vegas stints and dancing background hippies. It seems a reunion would be the next logical step. And there's a lot of money to be made for Stu and Doug as well. But the articles seem to tned into the archive-direction. A first release already happened (Woodstock) and I would love to see other stuff. There seem to be a lot of live concert recordings, but then again many probably are very similar due to the band's short career. A DVD would be great though. There were certainly more shows filmed than the one at Royal Albert Hall and the one in Oakland. Youtube has some snippets of a '71 show, so hopefully we'll get something like that.

Oh, and as I didn't find out until recently, a new CCR live album was released, "Live at Woodstock", which got great reviews.

And here's another story on the ending of CCRevisited:

I just heard that Sony Legacy will release a new vinyl version of "50.000.000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong" - the second volume of the "Gold Records" series - in January 2020. So for every collector and everyone who wants to get into Elvis' music, this should be interesting. It's one helluva album!

IIRC the wrong version of "Doncha' think it's time" was used, which differed from the single version.

I updated the list a little, with live performances from TV etc. Check it out.
7  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: This Week in BB History December 6-18 on: December 08, 2019, 12:44:41 PM
It looks like that was the whole set


Thanks! Then I guess they played "Oh come all ye faithful" at the end of the whole show or it was an encore for their own part. The footage on youtube shows no transition between GOK and "Oh come...".

Ehhh....no.

 ‘This concert will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine, or David Marks.’

Weird, do they have to state that for some reason?


Well, the tickets say "The Beach Boys", so....

Once again thank you for sharing this with us!


Quote
Dec 15 1967-The BBs appeared at the televised UNICEF Gala taped in Paris. The BBs dressed in white suits (Bruce with moustache), performed “Barbara Ann”, “God Only Knows” and “O Come All Ye Faithful” prior to Marlon Brando’s performance of a Tahitian dance! John and George were there with their wives and following the show, they introduced the Beach Boys to Maharishi, who gave them a mantra and explained TM.  Ironically, Mike, who’d become the most devout meditator in the group, missed the meeting as he had decided to fly on to London immediately after the show.  An excited Dennis had to get on the phone with him and convince him to return to be initiated.  I have interviews from a few days later and it’s clear they all were really turned on by meeting him.  He had a real charisma, I guess.  On December 18 the BBs were all back in London to appear on the Pop Inn Show on BBC Radio.


Do we know if these were all the songs they played? The footage on youtube obviously has some edits.

Dec 6-8 1986-Rehearsals for the BBs 25th Anniversary TV show produced by Marty Pasetta (of Aloha from Hawaii fame) began in Hawaii. Brian wasn’t there
For at least the first night as he played a NAS tribute Show in Beverly Hills on December 6.  Dec 9-11 1986-The BBs pre-recorded the music for the TV show in Hawaii with Terry Melcher producing at Commercial Recording in Honolulu
On Dec 11 there was a Photo session and full rehearsal using pre-recorded tracks.
The next day they taped the 25th Anniversary Show at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, in Waikiki with Ray Charles, Belinda Carlisle, Three Dog Night and the Everly Brothers and comedian Joe Piscopo.  It aired in March 1987.  It sounds like such a good idea but unfortunately it is almost totally cheesy and unwatchable-especially Piscopo. The band sang live to pre-recorded tracks but held a recording session to repair vocals they were not happy with.  The show was most notable for the inclusion of a new song by Brian called “The Spirit of Rock and Roll”.



The background vocals on this TV special sound almost like Foskett-only to me. I wished we'd at least have the original audio. I would love to hear Ray Charles with the Boys without any repair-work.

If you contribute to this public station, you get a remastered CD/DVD of the '86 Carl Perkins Special "A Rockabilly session" (feat. Clapton, Harrison, Starr, Edmunds, Rosanne Cash):

I didn't see this until just yet. Interestingly this sounds the most like a reunion is possible than it ever has (considering whom we're talking about).


Creedence Clearwater Revisited Talk Retiring From Touring: 'This Just Seemed Like a Good Time to Wrap it Up'


Cook and Clifford did lock horns periodically with Fogerty -- who famously refused to perform with them during CCR's 1993 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction during Revisited's tenure. Though in 1997 Fogerty's legal actions briefly forced them to change the group name to Cosmo's Factory, courts ultimately ruled in the duo's favor and it returned to the Revisited moniker. The three CCRevival veterans settled their various disputes a few years ago and now jointly operate an LLC "to market the brand and, if you will, exploit our good will," with plans for merchandising and other endeavors -- among them a possible video release of CCR's performance at the original Woodstock Music & Art Fair, which was not included in the 1970 documentary from the festival.

"We're not sniping at each other anymore," Cook reports. "We're focused on the good things about Creedence, which is where I think we should be. There were, on my part, several attempts over the years to turn the situation around, but John was never interested. And if John called me, I'd certainly talk to him. I always felt we were cheating ourselves by not at least trying (to reunite), but fortunately this (CCRevisited) project over the last 25 years has put the focus back on the music itself. Creedence fans around the world have moved on from our internal squabbles and the music reigns supreme."

Thanksgiving week is here and for Black Friday your indie record store should have an exclusive Willie 7” “Sometimes Even I Can Get Too High.” It’s a new song recorded during the sessions to the Grammy nominated Ride Me Back Home and the B side is “It’s All Going To Pot,” the Willie/Merle Haggard favorite from 2015. For more info and to find the closest participating store.

Mad pumped for this.

Really hope it has a clean version of I've Got A Friend amongst the live stuff.
Alan Boyd said in the Q&A session happened earlier this year:

Unfortunately, all we have on I'VE GOT A FRIEND is a very basic backing track, no vocals. And nothing on the song live, sorry to say.

so I'd say there's little chance we would get it, sadly.

http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php?topic=26378.0



The song was played at a show that was broadcasted on radio:

http://members.tripod.com/~fun_fun_fun/5-10-72.html


So maybe it's still sitting in their archives.
Honestly, I think I'd want what might well be the only "professionally" recorded live version of "Hold On Dear Brother" above anything else.

Sorry to disappoint, but "Hold On Dear Brother" was not performed at the Radio Luxembourg concert, despite reports to the contrary. It and "He Come Down" were played straight from the LP during the intermission/interview part of the show, so that's how they ended up in the broadcast. AFAIK, "Brother" was only played live one time, and that was in 2014 for the "Brian Wilson and Friends" show in Vegas, with guest star Nate Ruess. THAT one was professionally recorded!  Smiley


Did you hear a version of the broadcast? What was the quality like?

I'm not sure but I think "I've got a friend" was part of a later time frame (the Blondie & Ricky era) which "Sunflower" and "Surf's Up" don't cover. But this is just guessing on my part, I of course don't know what show will be on the set.
