Carry Me Home would have been nice too (even if it wasn't intended for Holland)

I would love for there to be a good sized book written about this album. Between Brian ditching the actual country of Holland sessions, to how the individual songs came about, a travelogue of what Carl and the gang did in their time off in Holland, how the new members (Blondie and Rickie) fit into the band, Van Dyke saving the album with SOS, etc.

Heck, maybe this can turn into Bill Pohladís Love and Mercy II Grin

Iíll be sure to play this album today.

I've been thinking about writing that book for years.


Itís a shame that Jack Rieley passed on a few years back.  He would probably be the best source for that story.

I came as close as being his friend on Facebook, but he was already in and out of the hospital in those days.
He had such a profound influence on the Beach Boys.

Fantastic stuff!

Luckily, I found it in a library I have access to!

Thanks! I do have the first book you recommend and the PS BOX-booklett, I will revise them later!

Still need to find that book by Lambert, it's pretty price on Amazon!

7  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Q: best historical analysis of Good Vibrations? on: December 07, 2017, 02:36:29 AM
Dear people,

I'm currently obsessed with Good Vibrations. I'm listening to every session en reading every snippet of information about this big cultural achievement.
There's of course a lof of ground to cover (PSS and TSS boxsets, various dvd's and books), but they all seem to focus on a small portion of the GV-timeline.
I want more.

Is there a complete overview of the recording proces of GV? What's the best book on this subject? I really like c-man's website and sessiongraphy in TSS-book, that's my favourite source of information for GV

Record arrived at the office this morning. It's very very very moving.
Really good, way better than expected. I kinda of wish NPP was so bare sounding.
But the polished 2015 stuff will grow on me, I'm sure.

Great time to be a fan.

What's your most distinct memory of living and working  in the Netherlands?
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson's Secret Bedroom Tapes - LA Weekly 1-30-14 on: January 30, 2014, 10:38:22 AM
I guess this will see the light of day, at some point. May take a year, may take 37 years.
Once this kind of press is unearthed public demand will rise and rise
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Where is that %^&$@#&* MIC Box Set @#$%^&*(!!! on: December 27, 2012, 02:33:56 AM
I'm pretty late, but my work's distribution system now says the box is going to be released in september 2013. Hope (and think) they are way off.
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: \ on: October 31, 2012, 02:48:05 AM
Hate to say this again:

According to my distribution system Made In Califonria is still released in January

BUT

There's also a Beach Boys 50 Live dvd and blu-ray that's coming november 16. I believe that was the original release date for the boxset. So there's still some stocking filler this year
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Project Smile Sessions on: October 25, 2012, 12:30:21 AM
I just downloaded the first version from sendspace and I'm loving it!
It's great that you can just insert a disc. I had a Daniel Johnston in my cd-drive and it started playing!
Funny stuff!

Project Smile was heaven, this is going to be hardcore heaven!

14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: \ on: October 13, 2012, 07:35:59 AM
It's still 76 euro in my distribution system at work. That's without taxes.
Should be close to a 100 dollars if it doesn't change (just like the release date)
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Exact Vocal Recording Process on: October 07, 2012, 09:01:39 AM
Yes they did, you can hear it on The Smile Session.
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: \ on: September 28, 2012, 12:28:22 AM
You know, if there's anyone to blame it's the person who wrote the press release. Dumb writing, dumb timing....this is what you get...
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: New Beach Boys 2012 Remasters! on: September 25, 2012, 06:42:02 AM
This new releases are great. This is also the first time I hear some original mono mixes. Being a BB-fan born in 1984, I discoverd them on cd.
Thanks Capitol, Thanks mr. Linett, Thanks Phil, Thinks AGD, Thanks Brian, Thanks Beach Boys!
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: New Beach Boys 2012 Remasters! on: September 25, 2012, 02:18:46 AM
Take the intro of Amusement Parks U.S.A., I have never heard the percussion and organmelody on the mono mix. The stereo mix takes the song to a new level. And when I listen to the mono mix now, I DO hear those parts.

It's funny you say that, because the instrumental track sounds pretty 'locked' in mono in the center.

I know, I know. But the new stereo version just gives so much space that I'm hearing new things for the first time. For instance, the bridge of Wonderful. I never heard or paid attention to Mike's line, in the stereo version it's very clear.  Things like that I can now also hear when listening to the old mix. I'm not implying that the mono mix is any different now, if that's what you thought.

Just listened to the Smiley Smile Stereo cd, anybody else have issues with the piano in With Me Tonight?
Seems like it misses a few bars...


Splendid sound and a whole new way of listening to one of the weirdest and greatest records of all time.

Wowee... cheers for this!

Well, my first two lines were a complaint, but yes....it's cheerful news! Lot's of details on SS that are totally new to my ears, but have been there all time!

Not be like Phil, and it's probably nothing but the date for Made in California is pushed back in my distribution program:

18 january 2013!


23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: ISN'T IT TIME SINGLE VERSION (BBC Radio 2) LISTEN NOW on: September 04, 2012, 01:32:58 AM
Really, really, really awful

Weird delays, weird reverb, sound everywhere, too much autotune, terrible new lyrics

'Isn't it time, isn't it time, isn't it time to be lovers?' instead of the original rhyming line WTF? Making the single less catchy?

The album version had so much potential and they ruined it. I hope this will be a hit, but it doesn't deserve it, to be honest
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: on: August 31, 2012, 02:55:39 AM
Isn't Bertus a wholesaler?

Yes.

Sorry, I said it before in the Remasters-thread. But this is the system Dutch shops use to order cd's. The price can be anything between 90-100 euro's, with taxes.
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: \ on: August 30, 2012, 11:46:12 PM
Bertus Distribution, Holland indicates the following:

Made in California, 16 november, 6 cd's, 76 euro



Way, way cheaper than TSS!
