I'll say this, despite being a year older than Bruce, Mike looks like he's still in pretty good shape physically, for an 80 year old. Bruce, on the other hand, comes across like he's closer to 90, he looks like he's really slowed down alot, looks so old, almost bordering on feeble. How much longer can Bruce continue to tour like this, even for all the $ he makes for virtually doing nothing of significance on stage?  He looks sooooo old.

I watched the video of Rhonda on YouTube and I'm not sure what was going on there. Al looked like he didn't want to step on Brian's toes and Brian looked a bit out of it and his vocals were week anyway. Awkward moment for sure hope it does not occur

Just curious, any reason as to why Brian sang the 1st verse of Rhonda? Don't think I've ever seen that in all the years Al has been touring with him....it's Al's signature BB song.

I enjoyed the channel and the music but only listen to it and limited spurts when I was driving. It was on continuously this summer and I must say some of the songs repeated over and over and over again sometimes within 2 or 3 hours. Still lots of promise with this channel if they would only expand

Instrumentally pretty good, lead vocal by Christian is just not good.

Awesome songs both!

I think with the crowds that go to their shows it would be difficult to do more than one Dennis tune frankly they just wouldn't be there to hear that. Most people anyway. But I think what a great tribute it would be for them to do something like behold the night or wouldn't it be nice to live again and dedicate it to Dennis. That would be totally awesome, and great PR for this box set

Had to do some phenagling t get my copy of the 5 cd box today, but so glad I did....this is magical!!

That's a great tune, and your right, not too bad at all. Mike did a pretty good job, the BGV are a bit off again, and I'm not a fan of Cowsil's voice either, much less Christians. Still, so glad they added this one to the set list.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2021 Feel Flows World Tour Thread on: August 26, 2021, 06:47:04 AM
As usual anymore, the band sounds great instrumentally, but vocals...lead and harmony, are terribly weak. Cowsill should be singing this.

Totally agree with this comment from above. Heart is in the right place to include these tunes, I love that move. But the vocals are just sooooo weak, it really hurts the end result.
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2021 Feel Flows World Tour Thread on: August 24, 2021, 02:29:49 PM
Sorry but vocally it's about time is god-awful. Christian love should not be singing that song he does not have a strong voice he's flat Bland and a shade Behind the Music too. What has happened to this band?
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: August 19, 2021, 11:09:37 AM
I think it's August, maybe September. Google it just to be sure, but it's not out here in NJ yet.

I found the Goldmine issue, am checking daily for the Record Collector issue, and just found the current Shin Dig issue with the 5th Dimension so I at least know my bookstore carrys it.
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: August 15, 2021, 05:54:10 AM
Well as we all know Mike has always been a stickler for song sequencing in concert so it could well be.

Here's an amazing article about what he's been up to all these years...what a story!

I would also agree that the pre/post recorded vocals are just awful. They sound great, but it doesn't even sound like the Boys. It truly does sound like Jeff Fosket....just listen to Surfer Girl...outside of Brian's vocal on the solo, it's all Jeff.

Wow thanks for sharing that tip on behold the night. That was amazing

The towers on Newbury in Boston was tremendous!

I wonder what Bruce gets paid for his contribution to the live Act. Got to be the easiest gig and rock and roll for years and years and years now.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2021 Feel Flows World Tour Thread on: August 06, 2021, 11:16:26 AM
Even though this is an audience recording to me it sounds worse than Elk Grove.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2021 Feel Flows World Tour Thread on: August 05, 2021, 12:30:17 PM
Dude, this is no attack on Mike Love, at least from me. Mind you, I don't care for the guy or his antics, but that has nothing to do with what I wrote. They sounded bad, even the younger guys and Christian in particular. Listen to the show, and what this great band has accomplished in the past. I don't believe additional "practicing" from more performances will improve much here, frankly, they sound lousy, and just  tired and old. If I owned the Beach Boys name, there's no way I would allow this act to rip apart a once proud legacy. Case closed.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: August 05, 2021, 07:23:35 AM
Al is on the tag, A Childrens Song, and that tag is AWESOME! I think the bygone bygone, sounds like it could be a female....maybe Marilyn Wilson? Always wondered who that was singing it too.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2021 Feel Flows World Tour Thread on: August 05, 2021, 07:20:43 AM
Just re watched the video and it was Cowsil who sang the Add Some Music parts, and not real well. Watching alot of the rest of the so, I must add that IMHO Christian Love is a real weak spot in the vocals. Don't know what he contributes on the guitar, but vocally, his leads are weak, generally lagging behind the music a beat, and extremely bland. He now does the lead on Rhonda, and it remains a weak spot. Nepatism at it's best I guess, but the other guys in the vocal blend don't sound much better. Hard to believe the name f this band is the Beach Boys...such a downgrade from what I remember growing up in the 60s'/70s, not to mention the live performances in the 80's and 90's. Very weak.

To your point, Scott sounds like he sang a portion of add some music to your day and he didn't sound good at all, very rough. And the guy who sings the falsetto part now who usually has been pretty good in the past just sounds like he's screeching now. Boy at 80 years old can Mike ust hang this up  already, what he's doing to the beach boy name and Legacy is awful.
