1  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / How many of these 'unreleased' songs were complete and of LP quality? on: April 04, 2019, 06:51:41 AM
Hey guys. So I happened upon this article on Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unreleased_songs_recorded_by_the_Beach_Boys

which lists so-called unreleased songs. The first part contains songs that were not released on LP/singlebut came out in compilations. I intend to listen to everything eventually, but I'm just wondering which of these songs are complete/polished and were of a quality that they were/would be considered for inclusion on LPs?

Thanks for the responses guys - going to try some of these playlists out.

I saw a couple people used other unused tracks (i.e. Adult Child tracks, California Feelin, stuff from that second Christmas Album, Dennis Bambu recordings or otherwise), feel free if you feel it fleshes them out.

I think both albums have grown on me (honestly except the disco track; I like the sound, so maybe I'll replace it with the single version of that mix) over time tbh.

What's the best you guys can come up with here?  Cool

Between the two IMO there's enough to get a balance of material from everybody and avoid weak/out of place tracks.

(Apologies if there is already a thread for this or if this is the wrong sub-board.)

Hello - Thank you for approving my account. I'm 32 so I unfortunately missed a lot of the BB in their primes.

Until a few weeks ago, I was only really familiar with a few songs of theirs (Surfin' USA, I Get Around, Fun Fun Fun, Kokomo). I'm not quite sure what the impetus was, but earlier this year, I spent some time on Wikipedia hopping from article to article, and started listening/buying a lot of the material from the mid-60s. It's been about six weeks I want to say, and I haven't stopped listening. Everything in the span from Today! to Sunflower is terrific sounding (and I want to say I've probably logged at least 50 playthroughs of Pet Sounds/Smile Sessions).

I do want to try and listen to some of the later stuff more (I bought Love You and downloaded a reconstruction of Adult/Child), though a lot of my favorite stuff is the releases/recordings from when Brian was in his vocal prime and had control of production/creative direction on albums. Absolutely beautiful combination, especially with the harmonies being as incredible as they were.

In terms of new material, it seems I've chosen a great time to become a fan. Just a few weeks ago in December the Sessions material came out for 2018, and it seems there has been a constant stream of stuff being unearthed from the archives for a few years now.

I'm most likely going to lurk more at first, I have a lot of reading to do (and it seems there are a lot of insiders here, so I'm sure to pick up a lot), but I plan to post some once I'm acclimated.

Thanks again to the admin.
