I want to someday forget that this album exists.

2. Surfin' Round The World

I had never heard of this until your post. Listening now and I love this album!

Makaha at Midnight is such a great instrumental.

There's one coming, actually!

Eagerly awaiting this.

Haha I hear ya. I love the band ABBA for their sound but ugh their lyrics are completely asinine.

Two more points about whether or not Brian met Van Dyke

1.  Granted who knows how The Beach Boys history would've shaped up.   There's a chance that Landy doesn't get involved, and there's no split in the late 80s from Brian and the band.  If that's the case, does Brian become the prolific solo artist he's become?  It really seemed like putting out Smile, and getting that monkey off his back recharged his batteries.  Although, without Smile, that monkey may not have been there in the first place.

2.  If a history without VDP means that no incarnation of Vegetables appears anywhere in the BB canon, sign me up.   LOL

Ahh man. That final harmony in Vegetables (under the “I know that you’ll feel better” line) is one of their most beautiful moments, imo. And the version on TSS soars miles above even Brian’s BWPS version. Idk, just my personal preference, but that song is one of their coolest from that era.


I'm sorry, but I'll never understand the attraction for that song.  I know it's a fan favorite, but..............

I guess it’s because I’m not really a lyrics person. Those lyrics are completely ridiculous but beyond that there is so much going on creatively it’s unbelievable...chomping on vegetables for rhythm, deep deep chanting, the sound of a far off drum keeping the beat. Then that harmonious ending.

Granted, you’ve obviously heard all this and still dislike it haha, and I understand. Just sharing why I like it.

I’ve been listening to his self title album. Love the sound of ‘Hold Me’ - has such a great Marcella vibe!
8  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What if Brian never met Van Dyke Parks? on: Yesterday at 12:43:36 PM
I wrote a quick alternate history if anyone is interested in reading it.

Brian keeps experiementing with LSD. After Pet Sounds, Brian reaches out to good friend Terry Melcher about finding an intellectual collaborator to help push The Beach Boys into a more hip circle of listeners.

In this timeline Van Dyke Parks either doesn’t exist or went on to pursue acting full time.

Thinking out loud, Terry Melcher suggests that Brian go to a Doors show at the Whiskey. Brian takes some acid and heads to the show. He is entranced by what he sees. He’s not impressed by the vocals but the lyrics are about crystal ships and how the West is the best. Post-show Brian is introduced to Jim backstage, he’s told that Jim is the mastermind behind the lyrics. Jim is bombed out of his tree on alcohol but he knows of Brian and digs his music. The two, though weird as hell, kinda hit it off.

“If you ever want to stop by and work on some music, here’s my number.” Brian tells Jim and hands Jim his business card. Keep in mind this is before The Doors are even signed. They know that they are a hit but Jim is frustrated that they have played the Whisky and other hip venues for months without much luck regarding a recording contract. So here comes Brian, rumors of The Beach Boys starting their own label are floating around Hollywood....”I’d be a fool not to go talk to the leader of one of the greatest bands on the planet.” Jim thinks. Also keep in mind that Jim was a fan of The Beach Boys.

A couple days later Jim shows up at Brian’s door. He’s greeted with the smell of fresh broiled steak dueling with the pot smoke wafting from the living room. Brian lights up upon seeing the scruffy but masculine looking Morrison, and they head to a couch where Brian offers Jim a joint. They talk about the music business and their own musical ideas.

Brian is blown away by how intellectual Morrison is. He is talking about Roman gods, Nietzsche, ancient philosophy. Brian suggests they both take some acid and then head to the piano. Though Jim is a man full of confidence he is also not sure what to think of Brian, he is intimidated by the fame of The Beach Boys, but Brian seems so full of childlike love of life. He can’t say no to writing a song on acid that won’t be remembered. They take the acid and both keep talking about life.

This is how Brian works. He did it with Asher with major success...sit on the couch, get high, and talk about what’s on your mind. It’s like stream of conscious thinking out loud. And with Jim Morrison it opened up an entire world of possibilities.

They head to the piano and both are high as kites yet Brian writes the music away on sheet music above the piano. They laugh and write into the evening. Nothing is said about an official collaboration, but they both know they’re onto something.

Although it has been on Brian’s mind, he doesn’t tell Jim of the wonderment he has with a cowboy and Indian song. He instead suggest they write a song about the rise of love in the West, the fall of Rome, and perhaps a song about a mystical girl and boy who innocently and wonderfully fall in love. Brian also tells Jim he wants to name his next album ‘Dumb Angel’. Jim is shocked that the leader of wholesome sounding Beach Boys wants to go off in such a direction. But it intrigues him even more.

Weeks go by. Jim plays for the Doors by night, and works with Brian by day. They create an entire album, a pop symphony created in the minds of two of the most mystifying musical geniuses of 1966. During this time Brian also records The Doors as a side project (Brian’s only suggestion that they “add more harmonies”). It’s a symbiotic relationship that serves both bands perfectly. The Doors now have a demo tape that sounds like a hit album, they will soon sign with Capitol thanks to Brian putting in a good word.

The Beach Boys get back from a tour and Brian excitedly shows them the new material. It’s weird, no doubt, but Jim and Brian are so confident about it that they see potential in it. At a vocal recording session of ‘CaliEssence’, Mike Love asks Jim Morrison pointedly “What do these lyrics mean?” to which Jim just laughs at Mike. Nothing further is said and The Beach Boys go on recording the songs.

On January 1, 1967 The Beach Boys release ‘Dumb Angel’ to critical acclaim...12 songs of intellectual pop genius. The Doors, on their own merits, skyrocket to the top of the charts with the release of their first album. Brian still takes a break from big productions after ‘Dumb Angel’ and follows the Doors style with a grungy soulful album of their own called ‘Wild Honey’...listen to the organ in the middle eight, perfectly captures that Doors sound. The Beach Boys followup to ‘Dumb Angel’, without the lyrical aid of Jim Morrison, does well on the charts.

They continue to impress listeners and critics for the next decade. Their final album as a group, The Beach Boys Love You becomes the pinnacle of 70s rock...it’s a perfect sendoff for a band that would never tour again until 2012 for a 50th anniversary tour.

The album ‘Dumb Angel’ makes the Rolling Stone top 100 albums ever made list, coming it at number 2 behind Pet Sounds. It is revered as one of the weirdest and incredible collaborations of rock history.
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Your Top 3 Favorite Solo Albums on: Yesterday at 10:30:47 AM
With the release of Mike’s solo album, I kinda wanted to start some discussion on our favorite solo albums from The Beach Boys. Whether it be Bruce, Dennis, Mike, Carl, Al, David, or Brian, each of these guys has spent time in the studio doing their own thing. What are your top 3 solo albums and why?

1. Pacific Ocean Blue

This is the most real sounding solo album I’ve ever heard from any of these guys. There are no modern studio tricks, no pro-tools. I feel like this warm vintage analog sound is something that will be completely lost for any more solo or studio albums by these guys. I think Brian came close on the Gershwin album, but it’s all still very crisp and clean (and I’m not bashing that clean sound, but it just doesn’t feel as warm as those old pre-digital era recordings...and yes, I know BWRG was recorded analog).

Another part of that real sound is the songwriting. Dennis was trying to make a statement, not a conventional hit, so each song is a powerful statement from his heart that isn’t warped by a record company wanting a top 40 hit.

2. BW88

It’s a shame that such a great album came out of the depths of one of the darkest times in Brian’s life. Which makes me feel weird for liking this album so much. When I listen I usually ask myself “how much did Landy have to do with this album?” but usually this thought doesn’t last long and I’m completely overtaken by, what I consider, Love You part 2.

I love the synths, the songwriting is fantastic (that hook in ‘Baby Let Your Hair Grow Long’ is one of Brian’s coolest solo creations. I love ‘Let It Shine’ and if Brian had zip to do with the songwriting I still wouldn’t care. ‘Rio Grande’ is really cool - snippets of songs that paint a cool picture of cowboys and Indians.

3. Postcards from California

So I haven’t heard this years (Apple Music doesn’t offer it and I currently can’t load it onto my phone from my computer). But Al just sounds so darn good on this thing. You can really tell that he put a ton of work into this. There is a great one on this album, I think it’s called ‘San Simeon’ and it sounds kinda like ‘Don’t Worry Baby’ but it’s one of my favorite solo songs from any of these guys.
_______

Gershwin and NPP are up there too for me. I think vocally the Disney album is one of Brian’s best. I need to give Dave’s latest album a listen one of these days.

10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love - Unleash the Love - Due November 17 - w/ 2nd Disc of BB Remakes on: Yesterday at 09:55:35 AM
So with my day off, I've taken a little time to listen to this thing on YouTube...needless to say, I won't be spending money on it.

Since there is so much bad to be said, I'll focus on the good...

Getcha Back actually sounds pretty great. I've liked what they do with this live and that's pretty much what this is. The new lyrics are nice and honestly a little more interesting than the original.

Too Cruel isn't a bad tune. This would go over well in the live show.

Cool Head, Warm Heart is a highlight...since nothing has changed to it.

If Mike's name weren't Mike Love, Unleash The Love wouldn't be so bad.

As for the remakes....Warmth of the Sun with Aambha is nice (she did a great job on it with the NSO live). And WILD HONEY! I'd actually like to own this track. I may just download this track beacuse John Cowsill, that's why.


To piggyback this, I like the new lyrics to Getcha Back, but the whole track is so different from what I’m used to on the ‘85 album. But I guess if you’re used to their live version then this wouldn’t be such a problem.

Agreed about Too Cruel. I can really see this on a modern Beach Boys album. It kinda reminds me of ‘Isnt It Time’ from the 2012 album. What kills it for me is the autotune.

Warmth of the Sun and Wild Honey are my favorites from this set.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love - Unleash the Love - Due November 17 - w/ 2nd Disc of BB Remakes on: Yesterday at 05:35:20 AM
The Beach Boys played new Mike Love alongside classic hits at the "Unleash The Love" listening party last night. This is not okay.
Sure it is. Glad they are playing some of the new songs. Wonder if any of them will make it into the regular setlist? And for how long?

LOL right?? [err at first thought you were being sarcastic there, Lonely Summer. I guess that was a serious post? Pardon for the confusion] And on top of how ridiculous this is, I read this on Facebook a minute ago:

I saw the Beach Boys a few days ago. The whole concert was basically a sales pitch for the album. The video screen kept displaying the cover image, along with a number to text to save 50% for the duration of the concert.

I really hope this person was joking. A number to text for 50% off the album? If that’s true then he’s turning Beach Boys concerts into the QVC channel. I can see it now, Mike Love finishes up Be True To Your School then invites John Stamos out to help pitch the album. “Oh it’s a great value, Mike. 25 songs for $9.99. That’s right, 25 songs for $9.99. Dial #409 on your cell phones to receive this phenomenal set for 50% off the retail price!”

I would of course like it to be known that I don't weigh heavily Amazon reviews. I doubt that many folks really leave their purchase of music or movies (as opposed to, say, a consumer product like a vacuum cleaner or something) up in the air until they read Amazon reviews.

There are indeed plenty of awful, YouTube-level reviews on Amazon. Lots of awful writing. Grammar nightmares, etc.

Also, I see in some cases seemingly "regular" Amazon customers are sent free copies of books and other things and asked to review them. Are non-journalist, non-professional "reviewers" that are just "regular" customers really super likely to give a freebie item a horrible review, or will they hope they'll continue to be sent freebies?

I actually used to be in their “freebie” Vine program. It didn’t depend on good reviews (not sure if that has changed in the last 5 years though). It depended that you wrote up an honest review (in an allotted amount of time) of a product you selected to be sent to you. Amazon would send out an email with like 100 items that ranged from 60” televisions to books that wouldn’t be available to the public for months down the road. You’d select one or two items you wanted sent to you and you were given a certain amount of time to review it.

Also, thanks for the tip on the filter for verified purchases. Haven’t used Amazon much since the last holiday season!
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love - Unleash the Love - Due November 17 - w/ 2nd Disc of BB Remakes on: November 21, 2017, 12:24:34 PM
It appears as though the website still allows one to submit a review for "Unleash the Love" without an Amazon verified purchase. I don't know if that means they did a big clean-out but haven't literally instituted a policy of only verified purchase reviews, or if they have locked all non-verified purchases out and simply left the "review" button up, in which case that would suck to write a nice, long, thoughtful review only to have Amazon ignore it.

When you click on “write a review” you are sent to a page to select your star rating and to write your review. But once you select your star rating the page immediately pops up an alert:

Sorry, we are unable to accept your review of this product for either one or both of the following reasons:
This item is currently only eligible for Amazon Verified Purchase reviews. Please visit our Customer Reviews Guidelines and About Amazon Verified Purchase Reviews for more details.

Frankly I think there is a market open for a good music review app that would allow people from Spotify and Apple Music to write their opinions on albums without being chased off with “verified reviews only” policies (quite like the book review site ‘Goodreads’)

I like that idea a lot...

I think the verified purchase thing is ok, but it should just carry more weight than a non-verified purchase.

I actually almost edited this idea into my above post. I can see Amazon making two simple sections in their review section for verified and unverified reviews. Let the consumer judge what is a BS review and what isn’t.
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love - Unleash the Love - Due November 17 - w/ 2nd Disc of BB Remakes on: November 21, 2017, 12:15:31 PM
In all seriousness, I think Amazon particularly is treading in weird territory by locking down reviews on music. There are a *ton* of legitimate, legal ways to stream the music (Spotify, Pandora, YouTube) that would allow people to still offer a legit review.

I agree it’s weird territory. But perhaps it’s a way for Amazon to help retain some business without just becoming a place where people who listen on Spotify come to do reviews. As much as I dislike the policy of verified only reviews I understand it. Heck, I briefly floated the idea of buying the Mike Love album just to leave a sensible review...but I can’t in good conscience pay actual money for this thing.

I used to buy albums from Amazon all the time, in fact it’s primarily where I bought my Beach Boys discography. But streaming has completely changed that for me, and Amazon probably feels the financial sting from millions of other music listeners doing the same.

Frankly I think there is a market open for a good music review app that would allow people from Spotify and Apple Music to write their opinions on albums without being chased off with “verified reviews only” policies (quite like the book review site ‘Goodreads’). When I was an early fan of The Beach Boys one of my favorite things to do was to listen to an album while reading the reviews - you can hear certain things that you otherwise would’ve missed had a reviewer not pointed it out, or you get a better understand of the making of the album from a knowledgeable reviewer. Would be great to see an app or site like that.
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love - Unleash the Love - Due November 17 - w/ 2nd Disc of BB Remakes on: November 21, 2017, 10:48:07 AM
I kinda get the reasoning for Amazon to trash the unverified reviews...in fact I wouldn’t doubt if they had some sort of algorithm that did this automatically for obviously polarizing products. With a product that has 30 second samples for each song people will easily be able to understand what they’re getting into.

Anyone who listens to the samples will quickly deduce that either the 5 star reviewers have incredibly bad taste or they are being insanely biased. And I notice that filledeplage is, as usual, bringing up the lawsuit aspect of writing 1 star reviews...tbh I would guarantee that ANY judge would take one listen to this album and throw the case out LOL

I mean, that can only explain these reviews haha

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/cr/B07667GM1W/ref=mw_dp_cr

Looks like Amazon deleted all the 1 star reviews.

Interesting if nothing else that Amazon is locking down the reviews. They've done this on other products, usually things that have quickly sold out and thus see a bunch of reviews from people complaining that they didn't get it.

Amazon did this with the Megyn Kelly book when Trump supporters organized an online campaign to bombard it 1 star reviews on its first day of release.

I'm loathe to order again on Amazon but this CD appears to be of the mail order only variety. No brick and mortar store in my area is carrying it.

They also bombarded Hillary Clinton’s book as well. Though, keeping in mind this happens on both sides of the spectrum: Mike Love fans are giving this this thing 5 stars without actually reviewing the damn album, just complaining about the 1 star reviews.
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love - Unleash the Love - Due November 17 - w/ 2nd Disc of BB Remakes on: November 20, 2017, 12:04:12 PM
If it was a deliberate decision I just don’t see why they’d use it on some tracks and not others. I mean, I believe they did it on purpose for marketing/“artistic” reasons, but it blows my mind how inconsistent the effect is. And that’s why the reason why I’m blown away that a Grammy award winning producer produced this thing. The product has zero consistency. There is barely a cohesive sound (and that’s not knocking the different song styles; I love that Mike did different things like gospel and abstract SMiLE-like chants. But there is no cohesiveness with the production - which is HUGE for a record).

Someone said earlier, it sounds like he was hungover and did these lead vocals in one take. TBH I can’t even tell what the quality of the original vocals sound like because the autotune makes it impossible to hear anything organic in the mix. It’s funny that someone like Johnny Cash, with his deep and gravely voice, was able to go to the end of his career without using autotune but The Beach Boys have to use this on certain releases like their lives depend on it.

Its just sad that during the final listen before sending this to a record company, Mike had to have said “yeah, this is the sound I want the world to hear. I want people paying their hard earned money to listen to this album.” Literally how could you listen to ‘I Get Around’ and be proud to make people shell out $1.29 to hear that?
20  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Malcolm Young AC/DC R.I.P. on: November 19, 2017, 11:59:50 AM
Great post, GF. There’s this section in ‘Have A Drink On Me’ that perfectly encapsulates that “breathing” you’re talking about. Right at the 3:10 mark the guitars play a really simple progression that is so powerful because it gets to breathe...it’s in my top 5 favorite moments from their music all because of that...I don’t think the song is that widely loved, either.

Sometimes less is more...even Brian Wilson thought this way at times (bass solo in ‘Dont Talk’).
21  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Bob Dylan Thread on: November 19, 2017, 11:50:57 AM
I generally don’t get Concert  box sets - I usually can’t afford them and I am not interested to hear the same or nearly the same set list every night.
But f I had the funds I’d probably consider this one. What I like about Dylan is how he changes up songs. I’ve heard several completely different takes on In the Garden, plus 2 totally different versions of Solid Rock, to give 2 examples. He follows his muse with great results.

In contrast, the BBs have done things the same way over the years. Darlin in 1969 sounds the same as in the 80s. One of the few songs they fooled around with was Help Me Rhonda.

I totally get what you’re saying regarding The Beach Boys....because much of their sound does seem to have stayed the same. But I think us hardcore fans deserve a nice 2 disc album that features some of the crazier and good renditions The Beach Boys have done throughout the years.

Take the Lei’d In Hawaii takes we just got with the Wild Honey set. They sound completely different from anything we’ve heard from them since and it’s still great. Or that crazy rock version of ‘Lookin At Tomorrow’ HeyJude posted recently. It’s really rare, but they have some some really out-there renditions of their songs that should deserve to be on a compilation album.

Seems that Amazon changed reviewing to “verified purchasers only” - shame, listened to it on Apple Music and I was going to even out the reviews with a three star rating and my honest opinion of the album.

24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Your SMiLE sequence on: November 18, 2017, 12:38:48 PM
These posts, and this thread in general, revive an aspect of nostalgia that drew me deeply toward the music of The Beach Boys. I started frequenting this message board at the mere age of twelve, being fascinated by the music of 'Pet Sounds,' and the incomplete work of 'Smile.' I'm fifteen now, so the mystique surrounding the fabled 'Smile' project for me was a large part of growing up. I cannot hold a grudge against anyone or thing that contributed to what ultimately became 'Smiley Smile.' I have no basis to do so, but I surely regret the existence of 'Smiley Smile' in September 1967 over the 'Smile' album that was once being proudly advertised in January 1967, even if it means that The Beatles would have been so overwhelmed to the point of not even conceiving or completing the 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' that we all know and love today. Even though 'Smiley Smile' is underrated in its own right (in my opinion), 'Smile,' as incomplete or fractured as it exists, still sounds complete due to its sometimes inadvertently skeletal nature, and, in my opinion, largely better than 'Smiley Smile.' Creating these hypothetical track sequences to document or retell the unfinished concept that was once conceived in 1966 through the music itself was (and sort of is) a ritual of mine that I partake in when approaching this work since the music; specifically the modular composition standpoint, lends itself to fans heavily forming new narratives or concepts primarily based on the music, that results in still maintaining the music's relevancy.

I think that’s the best thing about this album. It’s so open to revision and becoming involved yourself. What other album in history allows you to mash together your own mix with so much freedom and room for being completely unique?

And my favorite part is that Brian has since released what he considers the finished SMiLE album and it’s fantastic. But yet we’re also able to roll our own. People have even successfully mashed together vocals from BWPS with the vintage instrumentals....making it clear that nearly anything is possible when it comes to these tracks.

Anyways, glad to see Smile talk still alive and well here.

Been listening to AC/DC since I heard of the passing. Just want to list some songs here if anyone is bored and hasn’t really listened to this band. They have some insanely catchy hooks, Malcom Young’s rhythm guitaring is a major reason why these songs have so much power. An interesting thing I read earlier: Angus Young once said that Malcolm’s guitaring was like the engine of a car and Angus’ was like the bright color paint on the car. Anywho, if you’ve got the time, crank up your stereo and listen to some classics...

War Machine
Have A Drink On Me
Moneytalks
Who Made Who

The entirety of Back In Black is an amazing classic with nothing but great songs.
