Tom talked a few years back about releasing a companion album to Wildflowers that would include songs that would have been on the originally envisioned two-disc version of Wildflowers. I wonder if Tom completed the project prior to his death and, if so, if Carl is on any of those tracks.

He’s also on “Honey Bee,” but he’s too low in the mix to hear.

I’ve always been fascinated by Carl’s contributions to Tom Petty’s mid-‘90s music. Today, while Googling to try and learn a bit more about their relationship, I stumbled upon this, from 1999:

http://www.nydailynews.com/tom-petty-personal-rocker-emerges-post-divorce-funk-hard-rocking-first-person-album-article-1.828436

Quote
The result brought out a new heaviness in Petty's voice, epecially in the opening track, "Room at the Top." The artist says he was trying to ape the plaintive singing style of his friend Carl Wilson (of the Beach Boys), who had just died. "It was my hopeless attempt to sound like Carl," Petty explains. "I'm just pleased that more voices keep showing up because if you've got to sing a whole album it's good to have different sounds on it."

Tom doesn’t sound like Carl in “Room at the Top”; he sounds like Tom, but it’s one of my favorite Heartbreakers tunes.

An aside, during the making of that album (Echo), Tom was struggling with a crippling heroin addiction, a fact that wasn’t revealed publicly until a few years ago in Warren Zaines’ Tom Petty biography — which I highly recommend if you’re a Tom Petty fan.

I’m surprised they don’t play non-Beach Boys songs with Beach Boys guest vocals. Things like “Wishing You Were Here,” “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” or even Belinda Carlisle’s “California.”

It would also be fun if the stations played the occasional Beach Boys cover — things like David Lee Roth’s “California Girls” (also featuring a Beach Boys guest vocalist), “Surfin’ Safari” by Ramones or “I Get Around” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
6  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Album Discussion Thread on: June 09, 2018, 12:59:01 PM
I still don't like Kokomo, but having the Bruce harmony louder on this version makes it a lot nicer sounding.
It would be nice if they remixed it without the dated ‘80s production. It might make the song a bit more bearable.
7  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys Channel on Sirius XM on: June 09, 2018, 12:57:40 PM
They always seem to be playing “Rock and Roll Music” when I tune in, and it’s always the single version.
8  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Have the Beach Boys ever had any good film/video promos? on: June 02, 2018, 07:48:47 PM
The video from a few years ago for “California Feeling” is cheesy, but in a delightful, comfortable way.

I’ve never heard of it.

It’s from The Big Beat 1963 digital compilation.
That’s the only copyright extension release I don’t have.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys Channel on Sirius XM on: June 02, 2018, 03:17:58 PM
They’re playing a song called “Mother May I,” a song I was unaware of until just now.
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys Channel on Sirius XM on: May 31, 2018, 06:23:11 PM
They seem to pull "Rock and Roll Music" and "It's OK" often from "GH Vol. 3: Best of the Brother Years", yet not a lot else.
Those are unique single mixes, which is interesting because they tend to favor of late the album versions for compilations.

I'd comment here too, but I have to run. I watched the video showing these three bros having so much man-fun, and now have the undeniable urge to go buy a pair of Dockers khakis and high-five the salesperson, saying "DO IT!" as they swipe my debit card.

My religious family and friends sometimes ask me how I can be sure there is no god. Well, here is proof positive. A just and loving god would never allow this abomination to be unleashed upon his children.

God is dead, we're all alone, and Mike Love gets to run amok defiling Beach Boys classics with Uncle Jesse and Sugar Ray.
