Currently my collection consists of:

1 - the CDs

2 - the DVDs

3 - the books.

Everything else - vinyl, magazines, memorabilia and general "stuff" - was lost two years ago.

How do you lose that much stuff?  Moving? an ex takes off with it?  Storm damage?

Freak Worm hole?
Or donated to the british museum? Wink

There is a British Beach Boys museum?

I'm talking vinyl, no the CDs. The SACDs don't bother me so much... the vinyl? mmmmmmm

Though the CDs will probably sounded better than the 2012 CDs... UGH

Apologies if this has already been meantioned but someone posted this link on the Hoffman board:

http://backonthetracks.com/2014/01/13/the-vinyl-revival-upcoming-treaures-for-2014/comment-page-1/

Analogue productions set to release 24(!) Beach Boys lps and 14 SACDs mastered by Kevin Gray.

From what I can gather the albums that were repackaged in 2012 may be released as separate mono and stereo lps where applicable i.e. a stereo smiley would be available on vinyl.

Anyone else have any fresh info on this, or able to negate this info (and help me to manage my expectations in the process!)?

I need to get a job this summer...

There's a UK radio quiz about the news which plays music before some questions to illustrate the theme.  About ten years ago it was doing a question about new nutritional guidelines and it played a healthy chunk of Vega-Tables.  I didn't know the song then but thought it was amazing.  Imagine my pleasure when I discovered it on Smiley Smile (hence my name). 

"Ten years Ago"? My dad told me about this occuring the other day!

Also, I heard Santa's Beard in morrisons... followed by a COVER of Little saint nick  Grin

When will people realise Carl and The Passions is one of the longer Bach Boys albums?


It's short when you skip the songs you don't like.

Some people still don't understand the album format. Skipping does not exist.

Cotton Fields, Cottonfields. It's just a case of having the single version and album version being subtly different

Maybe he's comparing it to them in that the album is going to be very damn short.

Ahem:

Endless Harmony.

Not only is it the worst thing here, it's my least favourite Beach Boys song in general. Bruce's section is god awful, Carl's vocal is way too over sung, and it has the lyrics "God Bless America"

Yes, i am gonna repost this as it is.
143  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: so why are the mfls vinyl/cd so good?! on: March 27, 2014, 12:43:25 PM
Essentially going from experience of their releases, I can only say this:

With regards to the Pet Sounds MoFi CD, even in the version I have 'acquired', it sounds even better than the ever great Mark Linnett stereo mix - the EQ on the track is absolutely perfect, allowing each little nuance to truly become audible even in ways the Pet Sounds Sessions box cannot achieve [the only other PS stereo mix I own]. Equally, this is the greatest version for the dynamic range too - here it is compared to the still very dynamic 2012 remaster from MiC, with both tracks amplified to peak at 0dB for easy comparison:



However, both these things are not factors you are going to notice without significant enough equipment [to an extent]. It doesn't have to be anything spectacular, but obviously the better your audio setup to more you will benefit from these releases.

With regards to Vinyl, I haven't heard any of The Beach Boys releases myself, but I do own the Weezer MoFi catalogue on vinyl, and all 5 of these releases sound incredible, though don't forget the original releases of these would have far more dynamic range compression on them that most Beach Boys releases.

My dad just sent me this:



Sadly, that's the best Quality I've got, but if anyone can improve then go ahead.

Interesting choices:

Essential:
Pet Sounds
Surf's Up

Superior:
Today!
Pacific Ocean Blue
Sunflower
TSS

Good:
Wild Honey
Holland
Love You

Avoid:

Still Cruisin'

Pretty cool.
Funny how on Shut Down the lead singers imitate the original double-tracking small mistake on "and now the 413".

It's like they do the backing vocal "break up" on Sloop and the "woaWOah baby" on kiss Me Baby
