So is there a reason no one else is talking about this? Trying not to upset the powers that be by acknowledging it was posted? Just For You certainly warrants some discussion! Shares a few chord changes with another Dennis gem before going in a different direction!

Umm what..? Live 1971 shows, misc. 1971 tracks and The Flame 2nd album?  Shocked

Wait is this a joke or were these really posted? Did anyone download them??

This title has always stuck in my head and I thought maybe I'd see it on the Feel Flows set. Anyways, I was digging around on Spotify this week and came across this track by The Poppy Family (Terry Jacks' group), clearly based on the nursery rhyme but totally its own thing:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_7GpQCF3CQ

The timeline kind of fits with Seasons in the Sun? Assuming the BBs had some sort of friendship with Terry Jacks, I forget... Al did Don't Fight The Sea.... Any thoughts on this? Was the track ever found? I think Alan or Mark seemed surprised at the time to see it in the session logs in a thread from years ago, saying they hadn't heard it....

Can't imagine the Boys singing something as explicit as the "smoking pot" line, but I could see them reworking that line, or maybe it was just a throwaway studio jam based on the track that didn't go any further?

I bumped into Blondie at a Brian show at The Greek Theater in 2015 (Rodriguez opened). I told him I was a huge fan and asked him if there was any chance of the second Flame album being released. He responded with a smile "We're working on it, we're working on it" which gave me hope! But it sounds like there are too many legal issues preventing this or a reissue of the first album seeing the light of day... What a shame!!!!

That has to be it! Thank you! When you described it I was like how did I not think of that, makes total sense.
6  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Dennis - Thoughts Of You - Reverse Vocal Production on: October 04, 2021, 05:51:39 AM
Hi gang, was wondering if any one knew exactly how Dennis produced the reverse sounding vocal effect on the second half of Thoughts of You from POB. It sounds like he's running the tape in reverse on a track on the left side (ala Twin Peaks), except for the fact that you can hear he's singing the actual lyrics 'all things that live one day must die" so it must not really be in reverse? I can't figure it out and I work in production. Would like to try this for a title sequence I'm doing. Thanks for any input!

Does anyone know offhand what the difference is between the book/liner notes in the 5CD set VS the 4LP set?

Haven't seen anyone else attempt it, so here's my mashup of Our Sweet Love/Our New Home. (Always call it Our Happy Home since I saw it listed that way somewhere for a long time). Anyways, enjoy.

Cool yeah, I finally just started poking around in this section of the board after being a member for over a decade! Lots of good stuff!
10  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: The Blinking Eyes - When I Kiss You on: August 01, 2020, 01:00:47 PM
Billy, thank you so much!!! This made my day, tough to get any feedback at all in this day and age, feels like you're just throwing things out into the ether, so this really means a lot!

Wow....that was amazing. Love the sound of your voice, and the overall production was excellent. Quite catchy.

I mean this from the bottom of my heart...that is my honest to God favorite song I’ve heard this year, by *anybody*. I normally use Twitter solely to promote my band, but I shared this.

A++

Hey guys, I posted my cover of The Night Was So Young a while back. Just released my first original single/video today. Thought you might enjoy it.

Thanks! I've had it half finished for a few years and was finally able to finish it thanks to the lockdown. Then I'm finally going to put out some originals next month!

Where is the tambourine in the second verse of I'm Going Your Way that I've heard in booted versions? Also is this version a bit slower than the booted version (I'm assuming that this one is the tape at the correct speed). 
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1968 Copyright Extension Release Thread on: January 08, 2019, 11:03:23 AM
Has anyone figured out why the verse background vocals for Time To Get Alone are missing on the a cappella track on the set? Treasure trove of amazing material, this was the only thing I'm really wishing we got!
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1968 Copyright Extension Release Thread on: December 19, 2018, 09:05:56 PM
Why am I the only one fascinated in the Workshop connection with Our New Home

I am too...I thought others had noticed it already!



I'm hearing the same rhythm of the chords and similar instrumentation for the keys, but the chords don't sound the same to me. The chord structure IS actually the same chords as Our Sweet Love. Haven't seen anyone mention that on these boards yet, but it's been discussed elsewhere. I'm working on syncing up the two but it's not finished yet...
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1968 Copyright Extension Release Thread on: December 10, 2018, 06:29:06 PM
On those lines...any info on the 1980 version? Was it attempted or was it just rumored?

Definitely attempted (I have the AFM sheet). But there was an just instrumental track, no vocals, recorded immediately after the KTSA sessions. However, it may or may not have actually been intended for The Beach Boys. It could possibly have been done for The Captain and Tennille, as it was recorded at Rumbo by their engineer at the time.

Wow thanks for that info! Been curious about that forever!

C-man tried asking this earlier, but does anyone know when the vocals were done at 5:47 on Been Way Too Long Sessions? They always sounded strange to me. Is it possible that they were done in 1980?
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1968 Copyright Extension prediction thread on: December 08, 2018, 12:55:21 AM
Cman, do you have any insight on the provenance of the vocals at 5:47 on the Been Way Too Long Sessions? They’ve never sounded like vintage 1968 vocals to me. Is there a chance they’re from the 1980 Sessions?

"Be Here In The Morning Darling" is wonderful. What is it? Is it an entirely different thing from "Be Here In The Morning"? Or is it a totally different backing track that the same lyrics were supposed to be applied to?

it took a few listens but it is indeed the same song. you can hum the melody right over this new track for the most part. amazing

I'm also floored by the backing track we got for the actual Be Here In the Morning. the choruses are especially lush and the bells give it a timely holiday vibe. that slide guitar is such a sweet effect too. anyone know who or what that is exactly?

I would assume it's a lap steel overdub.
Craig lists Al Vescovo as guitarist so I'm guessing it's him playing the slide. Hopefully c-man can clarify.

I'm beyond psyched. This is my favorite Beach Boys era!!!!!!!!
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: I Believe in Miracles and Can't Wait Too Long on: November 08, 2018, 06:30:33 PM
I guess what I'm saying is that I can hear some sort of thread running through those tracks, just not quite in the way you're hearing them.  I think Brian just like experimenting with that feel.  You can also hear him do it on Cool Cool Water (Version 2) on The Smile Sessions where he transitions from Water/Dada into what sounds like the major chord version of Child.... Miracles is that same rhythm that seems like it was supposed to be a section of something but I still haven't quite figured out what else it's supposed to be piecing together.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: I Believe in Miracles and Can't Wait Too Long on: November 08, 2018, 06:18:07 PM
I'm coming into this a few years late, but not knowing anything about the track, I'd just assumed "Miracles" was an excerpt of a rehearsal of "Little Bird".

Miracles dates from the Smiley Smile sessions. Not hearing the Little Bird connection...

The underlying chords in the chorus of CIFOTM morphed into parts of Can't Wait Too Long (which Miracles seems to be a section of) and later "Little Bird" (the ending of which is a more direct rework of CIFOTM).  Even the fade of Surf's Up is an intentional reprisal of the chorus to CIFOTM, made even clearer by the 1971 vocal additions.  It's all over Brian's stuff from this period.

You did a great just lining up the tempo on your soundcloud link, but those are clearly not the same chords in Miracles and CITFOTM, I don't really understand how anyone earlier in the thread agreed.... Brian used that swing rhythm/feel a lot in this period clearly in the CIFOTM call backs you mentioned, however, the first chord in Miracles is C#minor and where you have it lined up in your track is some sort of E6 with a root of F# which is not in a minor key. It's clearly dissonant, I think that's a case of people hearing what they want to hear. But I agree that the rhythm in Miracles is similar to a lot of things Brian was doing at the time. Similarly I don't hear any similarities in the chorus chords of Child and Can't Wait Too Long....   The boot that has Miracles and Can't Wait connected as one track was stitched together by Linnett, which I thought everyone agreed on.  Totally agree/have always heard the Little Bird/Child/Surfs Up connection. Just not hearing the same chords in the sections you mentioned.... Can't Wait is the son of Smile Windchimes, not CITFOTM, at least to me.

Been rebuilding my BBs mix from the ground up since losing a hard drive and am once again obsessed with this Can't Wait Too Long snippet described in this thread.  However, the Archaeology track that I've found cuts out for a fraction of a second at 0:11.... Does anyone else have a copy without the glitch?  I can't remember if the cut out was always there when I've listened to the track in the past....The Linnet version on Secret Smile has no bass at all, so I'd love to find a glitchless copy of the Archaeology version!
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1968 Copyright Extension prediction thread on: November 06, 2018, 02:39:11 PM
Other websites say that the single came out in ’65 (http://www.45cat.com/record/us-x847559), so not sure how likely that is to end up on this year’s compilation.

Wow, did not know this. Always had it in my Master Mix as a 1968 anomaly...

The other track on the 45:

The AFM contract # 106707 for "Baby What You Want Me To Do" (aka "Peep And Hide") states:

date: August 17, 1964
musicians: Tommy Morgan, Hal Blaine, Tommy Tedesco, William Pitman
producers: Brian Wilson, Bob Norberg
session leader: Hal Blaine
