Beach Boys - Feel Flows Unboxing & Review | Vinyl Rewind

You get a very nice look at the vinyl version. The reviewer has some issues with the tracklisting though (he had hoped that you get both albums as they were released originally on vinyl and the bonus tracks on separate discs). Personally I don't care about that but then I'm no vinyl collector.

Not much to add here, but I thought for evereyone who doesn't know the other version of "Keepin' the Summer alive" it would be interesting to hear it.


Union - Keep the Summer Alive

Randy Bachman's take on his 1979 collaboration with Carl Wilson and The Beach Boys, "Keepin' the Summer Alive". This was released on Randy's 1981 album On Strike, recorded by his group Union. I believe the album has had a CD release, but I was only able to find a vinyl rip of this track unfortunately. Still, for those who have been curious as to what this sounds like, here you go!

Not as strong as the BBs version imo. It features a couple of different lyrics though. Thanks to whoever uploaded this.



Quote
the album versions were freshly-recorded, and don't use elements of the demo tracks recorded at The Barn (the later RB-produced version of "KSTA" from his subsequent band, Union, does)...


Is Carl playing on this track?




On a totally different note, I just saw this two days ago:


Randy Bachman reunited with lost guitar after 45 years

Brian's facebook account posted a audience shot video of "It's ok" from one of the most recent shows. Sounds good, although Brian seems to be short on breath. But then again you can't say too much because of the quality of the video/recording.

Just read that Ronnie Tutt has died. Certainly one of the greatest drummers around, he is mostly known for his role as drummer in Elvis Presley's TCB-band and after that for being the drummer for Neil Diamond. This was posted on facebook:


Hi everyone. This is administrator Duane. It breaks my heart to tell you that Ronnie has passed away. As soon as I get details from the family I will pass them on to you. Please do not bother them. Let them grieve. Leave your condolences and comments here for the Tutt family to see.

I’ll believe it when I see it as far as a world tour goes, but the 5CD set is a new one.


The group’s 60th anniversary will be marked by the release of a retrospective five-CD set, a new documentary and, “hopefully,” a world tour, Jardine said.

I think that one has already been released...

I'm just watching a video of last night's show that Brian's Facebook account posted. It's "Sail on Sailor", great vocals by Blondie as usual. PLUS he also gets a long guitar solo on the fade out. Didn't hear that before. Pretty mindblowing


I wonder if they will add some more Sunflower/Surf's Up cuts. I could imagine Blondie doing a killer version of "It's about Time".

"Had this remarkable band been less committed to its art and its fans, it could have retired from the field with honor at dozens of points along the way, confident that it had made a lasting contribution to world culture.  It could have rested on the success of the epoch-shifting Pet Sounds masterpiece in 1966… or after Mike Love’s concept album Endless Summer ignited a second generation of Beach Boys fans and stirred a tempest that rocked the music world… or after recording Love’s co-written Golden Globe nominated “Kokomo” in 1988 and seeing it become its best selling single ever… or after being inducted that same year into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame… or after watching its worldwide album sales blow past l00 million… or after winning the NARAS Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001 [along with The Who, Bob Marley, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jr. and Les Paul].  And still, The Beach Boys continue to have fun, fun, fun, with no end in sight."

I read this in Mike's voice from the R&R Hall of Fame speech.

“The beach boys do about 180 cruise ship performances every year…I’d like to see the Mop Tops match that!”

But for real, what a great observation - this thing reads just like Mike’s speech. Also, wasn’t the Endless Summer album Dennis’ idea?


IIRC Capitol planned a best of album and Mike suggested the title "Endless Summer". Never heard that Dennis had anything to do with it, but that doesn't mean he didn't

The song may not be "exciting" but I think the lyrics are well written, no matte what you think about the content, and the whole recording has great atmosphere.

Member of the Beach Boys Mike Love joined the Gallo show to talk about playing each year at Cruisin’ the coast becoming a tradition. He also shared some stories of being on the road.

The Beach Boys will perform one show at the Brandon Ampitheater on Wednesday, Oct. 6h and two shows in the Beau Rivage Theatre, Thursday, Oct. 7 and Friday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m.

That reminds me of some awards show back in the ‘80s — the Beach Boys were appearing during the show. During LL Cool J’s performace, the camera cut to various audience reaction shots, including one of Carl Wilson grooving to LL’s number.


I was trying to find that on youtube, but couldn't do so. But I saw this shout-out to Dennis from 1984 (ca. 1:30:00)

How come that they sing "Riot in Cell Block #9" and afterwards Mike is citing the lyrics to "Student Demonstration Time"?

They had been doing "Riot" for a year or two, and I think they recorded "Student Demonstration Time" a few months after this May gig. My guess would be Mike is reciting his brand new, as-yet-unrecorded, re-written lyrics?


According to Wikipedia the album was released in August, the recording of the song done between November '70 and early '71. I'd think that by this time (May '71) they would do "Student Demonstratin Time". But maybe they only started doing it after the album was released?  Huh

I don't know what the definitive sessionography is on that one. In scouring for info, I see a notation for a mixing session for "Student..." in November '70, but then additional (presumably *recording*) sessions for it in July '71 in the midst of a flurry of "Surf's Up" album sessions.

I recall Blondie Chaplin saying his first Beach Boys session was playing bass on "Student...."; was Blondie really recording with the band as early as November 1970? Or would he have been at those mid-1971-ish sessions?


Good question. I don't know. Maybe C-Man or Ian know more about this.

I posted this a while back in the media-section, while I was looking for more on the May Day show.





I saw some recollections online about people who went there. The Boys seemed to have made an impression, even though they weren't what the people came out for in the first place.
