1  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road (2019 Brent Wilson Documentary) on: Yesterday at 07:01:41 AM
Obviously, first and foremost, I'd like to see a "Beatles Anthology" style multi-part BB documentary covering everything.

So would I, but I don't think there are enough lawyers in the world to deal with the mess that would ensue - too many sides to too many stories.  The Beatles had the advantage of far more documentation over the years so that facts could be confirmed.

I am quite excited at the thought of Brian singing these lyrics, with his band on the backing:

"Hit hard at the battle that confronted me, yeah
Knocked down all the roadblocks stumbling me
Throw off all the shackles that were binding me down"

And remember, we don't know the genesis of the song.  Brian could have been around when Carl was working on it, or maybe Carl's inspiration came from conversation with Brian.


As with the Beatles Anthology, the idea with a similar BB doc would be that it would be authorized and have BRI involved as a producer, as was the case with "Endless Harmony." The downside of course is that you rarely get the most warts-and-all information. The plus side would be easier access to some archival elements and *some* publishing clearances, more clout from BRI in approaching a partner (e.g. Netflix, HBO, etc.) to finance and air the documentary, and full access to interview the members at length. They could also of course contribute photos, film/video, audio, etc. from their personal archives.

As far as legal issues with entities/people outside of the band, BRI and/or the producing partner would vet all of that through legal.

Somebody should get some prime movers and shakers in the movie and film industry to pitch a long-form BB doc to somebody like Netflix or HBO or Amazon, all of whom are throwing TONS of money at programming right now. One of the biggest costs would be clearing rights to film/video footage (e.g. TV shows, etc.), and paying for sync rights to music outside of the stuff the band owns the publishing for (meaning most of the 60s material).

A Netflix docu-series would be amazing. They’ve had some good docu-series recently, especially the series Wild Wild Country, and their Formula 1 show is pretty good.

I wonder if Ken Burns would ever tackle the subject - as his docuseries have always been Americana-centered, doing a docuseries on “America’s Band” would only make sense. And I bet such a documentary would cut to the heart of the problems with the relationships in the band - taking both sides of the argument seriously, perhaps even giving some much needed perspective to both sides of the isle.


But did Burns ever do a documentary focused on one single act? He has his new documentary about Country Music coming out this year, which will also be a multi-part show and of course not about just one artist. I'm sure he would do a great job, I just don't know if it's where his MO is.

A friend told me that he likes the "new" version. It seems that near the end someone else sings (probably May?). But it's not substantial enough to justify a writer-credit for Brian May (which he got). Has anyone else who listened and compared to the previously released version any idea if there are any new parts that May wrote?

In this video I make a bold statement about an album I recently discovered- Dennis Wilson: Pacific Ocean Blue. I also discuss the history, the music and the tragedy of his life. Also covered is The Beach Boys, the Love and Mercy movie and Bambu: The Caribou Sessions on vinyl and CD. So grab yourself a snack, sit back and enjoy the video!



I always am happy to see how people get blown away by the Boys' music  Cool Guy

Ok, I will compile an album of songs that come from this time frame, including unreleased stuff and also solo songs. Though not a concept album, I want this album mirror the feel of what I imagine would be late 70s California, not in a strict nostalgic way but from that of grown up persons in their 30s.
Some of the songs could need some work on the lyrics or maybe completely new ones. We'll just imagine the guys would do that.
Also this probably would be a little long for a LP, I don't know.

The album will be called "California feeling" (I know, not very creative and already used a lot, but I think it fits).
The track order needs to be done correctly, this is just the songs in nor particular order.

California feeling (the Boys' version added with just that one single "Can't you feel it?" by Brian from his demo at the right point - shangaijoeBB posted something similar on his Caribou album)
Everybody wants to live
It's trying to say
Good timin'
He's a bum (from Bambu)
My Diane
Shortnin' bread
Baby blue
Love surrounds me
I don't wanna know (from Celebration, maybe Mike could do the lead)
Lookin' down the coast/Monterey/Santa Ana winds (early version of the latter one)
Full sail
Angel come home
Almost summer (demo version)

'Country Music' documentary makes its Mississippi debut




PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (WTOK) - Philadelphia is getting ready for a night out on the town with country music legend Marty Stuart. Famed director Ken Burns’ 8-part, 16-hour documentary, 'Country Music' makes its Mississippi debut Thursday night at the Ellis Theatre, in Stuart’s hometown.

The Grammy Award winning artist loaned his voice and knowledge to the film that covers the genre’s evolution over the 20th century.

Stuart and Dayton Duncan, one of the film’s producers, say they can’t wait to share the film with the public.

“This guy. This guy is in the film more than anyone else because he knows so much about this music. He taught us. I’ll show clips about the Father of Country Music Jimmie Rodgers, too,” says Duncan.

Tickets for the event have sold out. The documentary will also be shown Friday at 10:30 a.m. in Meridian at Peavey headquarters.

This might be the audio of the reviewed show:


The Beach Boys Live In Concord 5/18/1981 Full Concert

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZKNRIKwjnw

The show reviewed is from the 1982 Concord show. I think that YouTube audio is from the 1981 show.

The issue is from October 1982, and it uses a 1982 band publicity photo taken after Carl's return in early-mid 1982.


You're right. I just realized that too and edited my message

Thanks for the heads-up. Sounds interesting. You can also see the Wild Honey-album cover in one shot.

Just one thing that I don't like is that the Beach Boys so many times get limited to be the band that influenced the Beatles (as was mentioned in the trailer). They can certainly stand on their own.
I also hope that Jan & Dean get their due.

the speeding up of CN was most probably done at the time for the 45 single release, in other words that's what Murry & Capitol felt was necessary if a Brian Wilson solo record was going to have the best radio play chance

the speed change was merely carried over when it was placed on the PS album now as a group effort


I don't think Capitol had anything to do with that decision. And Murry had nothing to say about their releases (he was fired by then), it was just a suggestion by him to Brian. Brian liked it and wen ahead with it.

(is afraid get in this conversation about ‘Caroline, No’ because he prefers the sped up version on the album)

I realize it was a bit long this time!


Don't worry about that!

I thought "Old movie" was an early version of "Cuddle up". Was it used as a working title for both songs or am I wrong about "Cuddle up"?

Hello. 2 Rocker - being country fan, can you tell who's your 3 favorite country singer-musicians? Thanks in advance.


Well, first I have to tell you that I'm absolutely not-knowing about modern country music. Basically everything that came after the 70s is not my thing. I can't stand the sound, the singing, all of that crap. I am a fan of what George Jones called "real country music", I guess it would be called "traditional country" these days. Anyway, just so you know that I can't say a lot about modern country.

And it's hard for me to pick anyone. I don't look at who's the best and so on. A great singer is a great singer and doesn't need to be compared that way to other people. But those who I always come back to are Hank Williams sr., George Jones, and certainly Waylon Jennings although I still need to learn much more about his catalogue. I listened to a couple of his albums from his prime and they are terrific. Looks like the albums I randomly bought where not on that level, although still very good.
On another day I'd say Jimmie Rodgers, Willie Nelson, and Ray Price. And on another day yet other people, so it's really not "my top 3". I just love that music and it has to offer so much and so many great artists.

What are your favorites?

Tom Hanks to Play Elvis Presley’s Manager in Baz Luhrmann’s Next Film




Tom Hanks is in negotiations to play Elvis Presley’s iconic manager Colonel Tom Parker in Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Warner Bros. biopic about the legendary musician.

Luhrmann will direct the movie. He also penned the script with Craig Pearce.

Parker discovered Presley when he was just an unknown and quickly moved in as his lone representation. Parker was responsible for various milestones, including Presley’s record deal with RCA and his successful acting career.

While Luhrmann always envisioned a star for Parker’s part, he wants a newcomer for the role of Presley. The director has begun meeting with talent for the part.

Insiders say a budget is still being ironed out, but Hanks’ commitment will urge the studio to push the project forward. Luhrmann hopes to get the pic into production sometime this year.

Hanks is no stranger to portraying real-life figures like astronaut Jim Lovell in “Apollo 13,” Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee in “The Post,” airline captain Chesley Sullenberger in “Sully,” Captain Richard Phillips in “Captain Phillips,” Walt Disney in “Saving Mr. Banks,” and Mister Rogers in Sony’s upcoming biopic “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.” Besides the Mister Rogers movie, Hanks can next be seen in the World War II drama “Greyhound” and as Woody in “Toy Story 4.”

He is repped by CAA.
