the electric harpsichord was known as the rocksichord

DEIRDRE is a particularly fun song to play on piano, having as it does complex chords and their progressions which give all your 10 fingers lots to do

I'd like to see a simple and direct Sunflower L.P. track line-up discussion thread, that is the continually evolving timetable over the months in '69/'70 of what song titles got added and others cut, all the boys producing so much output at the time and warner brothers repeatedly sending it back for a stronger 1st showing

CHRISTMAS DAY, not once but twice

first while pumping gas into my car at a Speedway about 2 weeks ago, over their outside PA

2nd, just last night while pumping gas AT THE SAME SPEEDWAY station!  Al Jardine's 1st lead vocal once again!

I guess if there's any time of year for that kind of coincidence to occur it is now (maybe the manager's a beach boys fan)

the association just mentioned w/ Break On Through certainly seems feasible to me.  Technically that song was the very first Doors release.  SLIP ON THROUGH / THIS WHOLE WORLD shouldn't've been just a hit but a DOUBLE-SIDED HIT.....IMO (they were short enough).  What a way to kick-off Brother Records, and both sides in stereo thanks to mr desper
130  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Slip On Through Reimagined on: December 20, 2016, 08:37:35 AM
remember the SOT flip-side was THIS WHOLE WORLD, so which should the DJ play (if he did)?  I'm fairly certain the designated A-side was S-O-T.  I bought the 45 when it first came out at a well-stocked local record store, not seen at any other place.  I was attracted to the particular pastel shades used on that early brother records label printing.  I wonder what motivated Dennis to give it that title (not that I disagree)

he must've sang pretty bad
132  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Catch A Wave original Draft Manuscript being Auctioned on: December 16, 2016, 08:30:50 AM
before it was released Brian once spoke of the possible next Beach Boys 45 release as "SITTIN' ON TOP OF THE WORLD" (he said it was "in the can"), obviously the working title of CATCH A WAVE
133  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The BBs and guitar effects pedals on: December 13, 2016, 02:24:33 PM
fuzz bass on SMiLE tracks like Cabinessence
134  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: I heard \ on: December 13, 2016, 11:32:27 AM
most of us here would be stopped dead in our tracks if we heard

VEGA-TABLES

in the gro......make that produce aisle
135  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 50 years exactly on: November 28, 2016, 02:00:30 PM
it was first in Malcolm Leo's 1985 movie BEACH BOYS: AN AMERICAN BAND we heard various SMiLE pieces like MrsO'LC
136  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 50 years exactly on: November 28, 2016, 10:48:21 AM
in the LOVE & MERCY movie we see this recording session and Brian's running around the musicians with lighted smoke flares

in the past it was printed that Brian had the studio janitor set afire a brazier of coals among the musicians

Brian couldn't record Mrs. O'Leary's Cow today because of smoke detectors
137  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Name One Song You'd Wish The BBs Should Have Covered on: November 23, 2016, 12:54:59 PM
AFAIC Brian for his next rnr album can go back to MY LITTLE RED BOOK.  I believe it still suits him quite fine

somebody else just mentioned (GIRL) YOU'RE BLOWING MY MIND and that sure's a fine choice IMO for him

instructions to artiste:

"you can't have too many VW micro-buses, peace symbols, or sunflowers"
139  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Why did Brian go with the title Then I Kissed Her instead of Then She Kissed Me? on: October 06, 2016, 01:32:55 PM
"We're talking an Al Jardine lead - he's a man of action, a lover and a fighter, a kisser not a kissee, thus the lyrics were possibly changed to reflect his character".

are we talking the same Al Jardine here, of the Beach Boys, who Dennis once termed as "a man waiting for a bus"

all told the title gender change doesn't prove to make sense to me, because the body of the lyric--as originally sung by a girl--is of a passive nature, and you really can't bring closure with an overt act.  unless, as has already been said, the next verse is "And then she punched me"
140  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Girls on the Beach on: October 06, 2016, 01:24:01 PM
could be GOTB is one where Murry Wilson is standing in the control room shadows.  the songs not one of Brian's most adventurous of productions
141  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: \ on: October 06, 2016, 01:21:17 PM
"walking out in front of the car is more dramatic" - i'll say it is (try it yourself sometime), and conveys a sense of danger like it or don't
142  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: \ on: October 06, 2016, 12:43:51 PM
I'd love to agree with you wholey, it certainly makes sense from a thematic standpoint (has Brian ever owned up to his deliberately walking into somebody as if by accident?), but from a practical standpoint there's a world of unfortunate difference between 'walking into' any person you see strolling down a sidewalk, and walking into a moving car out on the street
143  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: \ on: October 06, 2016, 11:29:23 AM
the deleted scenes are good, if dispensable - brian deliberately bumping into phil spector on the street, casual introduction of tony asher, etc
144  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Advantages of Hearing Smile in Mono on: October 06, 2016, 11:21:49 AM
nobody could ever accuse me of being a fan of mono, in any case, except perhaps GOOD VIBRATIONS.  Somehow that one holds up as it always has perfectly fine in mono, and they can save themselves the DES trouble and not risk making things worse by leaving it so for good
145  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: PS tribute: Real Pet Sounds on: September 27, 2016, 12:47:42 PM
i wish these early versions would be bonus tracks:

RUN SPOT RUN
HANG ONTO YOUR GECKO
LITTLE GIRL I ONCE GNU
146  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Stack-O-Tracks: Who picked the tracks, and why? on: September 26, 2016, 01:32:55 PM
there's this jan. '68 brian wilson interview about forthcoming S-O-T album:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvzc2UXl9BU

But the official release date for the L.P. is Aug. 19 '68, which's also the date for BEST OF THE BEACH BOYS VOL. 3

WILD HONEY album was a December '67 release (the exact date coinciding w/ DARLIN' single)

FRIENDS 45 came out in April '68, the album of same name in June

DO IT AGAIN was a july '68 release

I've not been able to put a precise release date on the 3 record Capitol boxed-set BEACH BOYS DELUXE, but it appears to be shortly before WILD HONEY album

147  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Stack-O-Tracks: Who picked the tracks, and why? on: September 23, 2016, 02:42:49 PM
and the original S-O-T capitol vinyl album (gatefold w/ printed music booklet) is not stereo, just a variation on mono sound
148  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 12 Most Underrated Beach Boys Songs - According to Mike Love on: September 22, 2016, 11:07:39 AM
we know KTSA album producer Bruce Johnston termed OH, DARLIN' the most "almost-Brian-Wilson-produced" song on the album (per the KTSA original release video), and judging by that early/demo version of the song we certainly have proof
149  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Stack-O-Tracks: Who picked the tracks, and why? on: September 22, 2016, 09:40:33 AM
DO IT AGAIN was just out then
150  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Question about 'Brian Falls Into A Piano' on: August 11, 2016, 07:36:29 AM
I had no problem recognizing Danny's voice with the bit of his vibrato heard there, not at all sounding VDP
