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

"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
128  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
129  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

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

i wish these early versions would be bonus tracks:

RUN SPOT RUN
HANG ONTO YOUR GECKO
LITTLE GIRL I ONCE GNU

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

133  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
134  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
135  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
136  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
137  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Question about 'Brian Falls Into A Piano' on: August 10, 2016, 01:14:02 PM
No that's Danny Hutton (not VDP) - "What A Thing To Happen!".  The line is from Danny's 45 record on MGM about a year earlier "FUNNY HOW LOVE CAN BE"
138  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Loren Daro comments on Brian & LSD (possibly...) on: August 07, 2016, 12:52:05 PM
VDP's twitter "Why am I always the last to know.....this explains everything!"  response is uproarious
139  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: All Dressed Up For School on: August 01, 2016, 08:27:54 AM
a few posts ago mention was made of a mono mixed version of ADUFS with added hand-claps that aren't present on the stereo mix made by Mark Linnett for the two-fer bonus track, where the song debuted

yes that mono mix can be considered the original 'finished' version, but everyone here's forgetting the obvious - the mono ADUFS mix (w/ handclaps) WAS released (officially) about 8 years ago as a track in the Beach Boys Singles Collection set of 16 CD's

I like that set because it also contains a terrific stereo mix of DO YOU WANNA DANCE also not present elsewhere.  It's (mostly) the instrumental backing track and comes across with terrific power--far and away the best demonstration of Brian Wilson's Wall Of Sound.  The vocals are turned up and in for the songs ending

ADUFS contains the 1st appearance of what I term the 'Brian Wilson (sung) Scale' - 9 notes:  D, F#, G, G#, A, A#, B, C#, D.  Which he also put into the Heroes & Villains sessions and later GOIN' ON
140  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Backing Vox 'Let's go away...' on: March 22, 2016, 11:04:26 AM
yes mr asher used to have songwriting LGAFA credit - you must check older pressings and printed music to confirm

he didn't get songwriting LGAFA credit because he contributed to writing the music, otherwise his name would still appear credited today
141  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Backing Vox 'Let's go away...' on: March 22, 2016, 10:23:24 AM
since as I'd said Tony Asher had songwriting credit for LGAFA yes that's evidence of lyrics, if unused
142  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Backing Vox 'Let's go away...' on: March 21, 2016, 06:42:09 AM
we all know Tony Asher (originally) had songwriting credit on LGAFA
143  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Backing Vox 'Let's go away...' on: March 20, 2016, 02:24:53 PM
Brian was trying to put a good face on the missing LGAFA vocal outcome saying that the song was better off without words--and while true enough it may well not've been Tony Ashers's original plan at all.  Brian saved his most difficult piece for very last and when the day came to record vocals Capitol pulled the studio time plug, not wanting to risk yet another possible string of recording sessions on a album they already knew they'd serious misgivings about
144  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Backing Vox 'Let's go away...' on: March 20, 2016, 01:09:18 PM
It's very interesting I believe to note the date vocals for LGAFA were scheduled to be recorded, Capitol scuttled the mission so to speak and had Brian do the PS album mixdown instead
145  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary on: March 18, 2016, 10:46:00 AM
I'd dare Capitol to include a Pet Sounds cut or two on this 50th anniv. edition in DUOPHONIC stereo - just for laughs.  It is the way many of us heard it originally
146  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: new article with some interesting tidbits on: March 11, 2016, 11:32:04 AM
there's irony there that I'm a little surprised Pohlad didn't work into the L&M script somehow - Brian is prevented from contacting his family with the usual means by Landy, so he covertly uses Melinda's cell instead to call Mom & Carl w/o Landy's knowledge, which saved phone numbers later gives Melinda the direct means she needs to make family contact and take down Landy
147  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: An examination of The Beach Boys at Chicago's Collaboraction Theater on: March 11, 2016, 07:31:34 AM
you know Amanda last night I was especially fine w/ Wes Perry's rendition of (IG)IJWM4TT, angry young man delivery though with good dimension (he even made an attempt to insert a background vocal line I noticed).  You yourself worked w/o script in hand (insert applause emoticon here) and had a good insightful point or 2 about BB Love You album.  Thanks, glad I came
148  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: An examination of The Beach Boys at Chicago's Collaboraction Theater on: March 10, 2016, 06:56:01 AM
I for one plan on being there tonight, quite a missed opportunity if I didn't
149  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Uncut Ultimate Guide to the Beach Boys on: March 08, 2016, 07:53:46 AM
the song VEGATABLES (or do you say VEGA-TABLES?) would make an excellent dog food commercial theme IMO, lyrics rewritten to the degree necessary
150  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Uncut Ultimate Guide to the Beach Boys on: March 08, 2016, 07:08:16 AM
notice Brian's beagle was photo-shopped out of that nice old cover photo (inside the tent), which's a mistake IMO since I always liked the pooch and thought he gave it a nice 'crowning touch' at the top

(I refrain from calling it either Banana or Louie since I've been known to mix-up the two)
