4  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What's your favourite live performance of a song? on: April 20, 2012, 04:40:59 AM
I agree with Sail On,Brian:
"Let The Wind Blow" from In Concert {1973} is simply Majestic. Carl's voice is absolutely Stunning!

And whilst we're on In Concert, "Sloop John B." from In Concert just happens to be my Favorite of all the versions I've heard in the last 40 years.

5  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Your Second Favorite Band Next to the Beachboys on: January 28, 2012, 03:34:08 PM
After the Beach Boys:
1.Actually TIED w/the BB's can only be................Genesis
Anything from "Trespass" (1970) til "Duke" in 1980. 'Supper's Ready' is still the Greatest song ever written.

2. RUSH  - what more can be said about the most awesome 3-piece band ever! 1974-1982.

3. Gary Numan  - Huge influence musically on me!

4. Roxy Music  -  Bryan Ferry & Co. are still unbeatable to this day as far as innovation and artistry.

5. Marillion  -   The Fish era was incomprable!

6. Cat Stevens  -  what more can be said..............Harold & Maude!

7. Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, King Diamond, Motorhead, Ozzy {w/Randy Rhoads}, MSG

8. Jethro Tull -  "Passion Play" and "Thick as a Brick"

Let's not forget Carl's now timeless and immortal singing on "Let The Wind Blow" off of In Concert.

Truly In Concert is one of THE Best live LP's ever recorded.

Glad to see you back Stephen! Happy New Year too you as well.
I'm looking forward to the  release of the 2nd edition of your book as I missed out on the 1st run.

I'm sure everyone on here would love to have your thoughts and opinions on the  release of "The SMiLE Sessions"?
Have you heard it? etc.

Thanks Stephen!
8  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: If You Could Only Listen To One Beach Boys Song For The Rest Of Your Life.. on: December 22, 2011, 09:57:02 AM
Live version of "Sloop John B" from In Concert.

A close second would be "At My Window".

Interesting topic indeed!
  I've always relayed to family and friends that at my service I want the "Seconds Out" version of "Supper's Ready" by Genesis to be played in it's entirety. The end of this masterpiece alone is worth it.........."To take them to the new Jerusalemmmmmmmmmmmm"  Still sends shivers up my spine.
  Then the "In Concert" versions of "Sloop John B."  and "Let The Wind Blow".
  And of course to me the Greatest song Brian ever wrote....................."At My Window".

Fitting send off to this Musician.

12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Should you be in the Philadelphia area this weekend... on: March 24, 2011, 08:51:44 AM
I live in the Philly area and work a mere 4 Blocks from the venue mentioned.

BTW, what ever happened to "Surfer Girl" that used post on here? I met her at the Mann Music Center back in 2005 when the SMiLE tour came here?

I was stunned to hear the horrible news that one of THE Greatest guitarists EVER passed away at only 58 years old.

Music just will not be the same without this Legend...................
And just revel in this video of his FEEL and Style:

WOW! What a Powerhouse rendition of "Come All Ye Faithful"!!
Truly, in the history of music the BB's have the Supreme Voices of Harmony!!
Stunning.

17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Songs that you prefer Live to the Studio Version on: November 18, 2010, 09:31:31 AM
"Let The Wind Blow" and "Sloop John B." from In Concert.
Even though I LOVE the studio version of "Sloop", I'm just slightly fonder of the live version.
Probably has to do with Carl's voice.

"The queen in Copenhagee

 That just about sums it up!!  LOL

19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: How the Holland LP stands up in 1973 on: August 23, 2010, 12:18:54 PM
I do believe that Matt-Zeus hit it right on the head!
Him and I both share the Genesis/Beach Boys as our 2 favorite bands. And the Genesis I'm talking about is anything BEFORE "Duke"(which was their last real Genesis LP).
It's the structure of the chords and song craftsmanship by Brian Wilson and Tony Banks/Mike Rutherford/Steve Hackett that actually make these two bands very "akin" to one another.
But above all...........it's the Heartfelt EMOTION that both bands bring to their music that has always been the real draw to myself.

20  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: How the Holland LP stands up in 1973 on: August 22, 2010, 06:20:50 PM
Sorry about that, "Selling England" WAS mentioned!

 Bri
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: How the Holland LP stands up in 1973 on: August 22, 2010, 03:33:49 PM
I'm surprised nobody mentioned what might well be Genesis' best studio LP that came out in 1973:

"Selling England By The Pound"

Dancing With The Moonlit Knight
Firth of Fifth
Cinema Show
I Know What I Like(In Your Wardrobe)
Battle Of Epping Forest

A Classic LP!

"Beach Boys Complete". I'll check it out when I get home......

Kayla,
  Do you write your OWN music?  I've been watching your stuff for a while now and you're extremely talented.

  Have you thought about forming your own group?
  I especially love your version of "Let The Wind Blow". That song has always been one of my favorites. Especially the version off of "In Concert 1973".

  Keep up the excellent job that you're Passionately enjoying!

Cheers,
 Big Bri

"The Last Resort"
Still holds up strong after all these years. I've always been a fan of this LP. In fact, it's the ONLY Eagles album I ever owned. Strong songs and as Donald just said it was a moment in time. 1977 to be exact.

25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Best Bass in a Beach Boys song? on: July 09, 2010, 04:17:01 AM
Off "In Concert"
Sloop John B.
We Got Love (anybody REALLY listen to that Bass line? It's Amazing!)
Surfin' USA
