Apparently it’s related to throat surgery, wishing Jeff a speedy recovery!

Agreed, that recording of Dennis singing Rhonda is one of my favorite live BB tracks. Just pure, raw energy, warts and all. Would have loved to have seen the band do that live with Dennis.

Mine too, it seems criminal to not include that version of Rhonda on In Concert or any songs with Dennis on lead, Forever, Slip On Through, It’s About Time or Lady would’ve brought the house down. Further criminal considering he’s the only Beach Boy on the cover.

This is a fantastic collection you’ve compiled shangaijoeBB, thanks for sharing and great set list for the live album, too. I’ve always loved Dennis’ bluesy, bar rock rendition of Help Me Rhonda from the New Jersey Show in 72, would’ve fit nicely on In Concert. Cool

Also with his Terry Melcher collaborations, Mike
must have played at least a minor role in shaping the song structures and melodies. However I think Brian deserved a credit on Getcha Back which is reminiscent of Don't Worry Baby.

Allegedly All I Wanna Do.

I’ve heard this, too, although Brian may have assisted with the music aspect of the composition. Perhaps Mike was inspired by TM and may very well have composed some of the music for AIWD/Sunflower and Friends...Who Knows?

There’s Love the lyricist and Big Sur, where he wrote the words and music but are there other Beach Boys songs where Mike wrote at least part of the melody or most/all of the music? I recall reading that Mike had written the melody for Let The Wind Blow and Anna Lee The Healer. Anyone know if this is true and of other examples?

Last night I listened to an excellent show hosted by Randy Bachman and he played Wrecking Crew songs, among them, Surf City, Don’t Worry Baby, I Get Around and Good Vibrations.

Just heard Rock and Roll Music on an AT40 show from July 1976, always nice to hear their 70’s music on FM radio.


Last week they AT40 played Getcha Back from ‘85


Nice! I’ve also heard Come Go With Me and Wipe Out on AT40.

I think Steve Miller’s Rock n Me would be a good cover for Mike, the singing style and lyrics are pure Love. I would also like to hear Mike’s vocal delivery on a cover of Reunion’s Life Is a Rock (But the Radio Rolled Me), that would be interesting.
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Songs That Could’ve Fit On Pet Sounds on: June 18, 2019, 08:29:20 AM
Well said, guys. All great pre Pet Sounds gems. In The Back Of My Mind also has that Pet Sounds level of maturity and sophistication.
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Songs That Could’ve Fit On Pet Sounds on: June 18, 2019, 07:41:34 AM
This may have been a thread topic before but what other Beach Boys songs do you think would’ve fit on Pet Sounds? What songs by other artists sound influenced by Pet Sounds or Brian in general? I’ve always found Dennis’ Be With Me had a lot of Brian’s influence with the lush orchestration, production and overall style and vibe.
14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Last Beach Boys song you heard on the radio on: April 06, 2019, 02:31:28 PM
A frivolous thread topic I know (and who still listens to the radio anymore?) but what was the last Beach Boys song you heard on the radio? Perhaps it was Help Me Rhonda on an am oldies station or Sail On Sailor on an Fm classic rock station. I just heard When I Grow Up (To Be a Man) on the excellent oldies station in Windsor/Detroit.
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Songs That Should’ve Been Hits on: March 22, 2019, 06:39:01 AM
This topic has probably been covered before but what Beach Boys song (released or otherwise) do you think should’ve been released as a single? Or perhaps a single that should’ve charted higher? For me there are many but one in particular is Soulful Old Man Sunshine, I think it sounded radio friendly and commercial with the potential to be a hit. I also think the catchy Slip On Through single should’ve made a bigger impact on the charts.

I’m reminded of the Jimi Hendrix quote "You'll Never Hear Surf Music Again.” Seems like 2019 is determined to take all the music greats. I’ll have to give Miserlou a listen in tribute.

Hell just him doing the intro for Be My Baby solidifies his legacy

Well said. Hal would later perform that same drumbeat on Sinatra’s “Strangers In The Night”.
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Hal Blaine RIP on: March 14, 2019, 09:17:54 AM
Obviously the most influential drummer of all time. RIP.

Yup, I read he played drums on at least 40 number one hits. His work on Be My Baby alone is an enviable legacy.
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Best album? on: June 25, 2012, 05:14:46 PM
You can't go wrong with Sunflower, it's a solid effort, a very cohesive and democratic album with strong contributions by every member, especially Dennis's four gems. Sunshine pop at it's finest!
20  Smiley Smile Stuff / 21st Century Beach Boys Albums / Re: That's Why God Made The Radio on: June 23, 2012, 07:02:20 PM
A great album with good catchy melodies, shimmering harmonies, top heavy in Brian compositions and even a good song by Mike, very few filler and the suite is just wonderful. Dennis and Carl are surely smiling from heaven. 4 out of 5.

Yo La Tengo -Little Honda
Lush -Lady

After the passing of Robin Gibb, I've decided to rediscover the Bee Gee's late sixties/early seventies catalog and I'm currently enjoying their 1969 double album Odessa, amazing work.

Does anyone know if 10cc have been inducted? If not they deserve to be.

Both Gram Parsons and Michael Nesmith are trailblazers for country rock. Here's one by Papa Nez from Nevada Fighter.
