I've seen track list for the 2nd CD of this set which has a track #35, though it's a bit confusing

HIDE GO SEEK and the unknown Redwood instrumental tracks on this new CD are rather brief

returning to the DARLIN' Redwood issue and exactly what/when lyrics Mike Love wrote,  there is contradiction and inaccuracy to pass around.  Brian took the old THINKING 'BOUT YOU BABY melody and gave it the title DARLIN' for the first Redwood single based on Danny Hutton's use of the expression.  They (Redwood) even recorded it as a Brian Wilson production because it's been said "the Redwood vocals on DARLIN' were erased and no longer exist".  What lyrics did Redwood sing--new ones written by Mike Love, and the same as Carl sang when it became a Beach Boys tune before long?  Personally I don't think so, even if Mike supported a Redwood single-only release in theory
81  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Beach Boys Wild Honey(Sunshine Tomorrow) 2CD Set? on: May 26, 2017, 11:35:56 AM
Mike was ruthless pulling the plug on Redwood, though a single only (brother Records label) was how Danny Hutton understood it at the time.  Brian offered to pay for recording a full album (even if he couldn't be producer) because he'd no doubt promised Danny that at the outset (apparently he wasn't taken up on that financial offer).  It's apparent Mike called the new Brother Records shots by this early incident and Brian learned that the hard way.  It's my belief that Mike's name was added to the Darlin' songwriting credit only AFTER Redwood refused a 45-only deal to start (but after some Redwood vocals had been recorded), interpreting the lyrics were modified by Mike (the title was a common Danny Hutton expression)
82  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Beach Boys Wild Honey(Sunshine Tomorrow) 2CD Set? on: May 26, 2017, 10:26:25 AM
Mike Love didn't put the kibosh on Brian's Redwood outside project in its' totality--only the extent of it.  Danny Hutton has said that at the time they were beginning recording an albums' worth of material w/ Brian producing but Mike said to him 'No--not an album we'll start with a single only' and Danny wouldn't hear of it, it's a full album or nothing he replied.  So Redwood got nothing.  If Danny had agreed to a trial 45 instead then Darlin' would have not been a Beach Boys single.  In Mike's defense I think he didn't want his cousins attention taken away by a whole LP's work outside the group but 2 songs were fine

if mike love' in 1993 is still trying to figure out what Heroes + Villains song lyric's about well it's no wonder he had such fundamental problems w/ over & over the crow cries uncover the cornfield

a tip to mr. love - write down all those lyrics yourself, correctly and carefully, and look at them for awhile

the other day listening to MIC cd's in my car I was reminded of one just such Beach Boys moment--FEEL FLOWS, following the Charles Lloyd flute instrumental break there's this rhythm breakdown / shift to a toy type piano taking lead over.  Man, that is just transcendent to listen again to

"Did you purchase the Spring album new at a major record store? Was it in the regular bins?"

yes I recall thumbing through the bins (probably new release) at a major metropolitan store and seeing the Spring LP in '72 (no not '73 that'd be too late IIRC), but it took a minute for me to realize just what it was.  I played it for friends then but the screwy moment of vocal harmony on Good Time ("you know what that can lead to") there usually drew guffaws from them (yes time to get new friends).  I liked Sweet Mountain a lot and thought Everybody had a neat beat of the type Brian's good at, but could've completely done without Superstar
90  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Love You Re-Appreciation Thread #6: All Things 'Good Time' on: April 12, 2017, 10:48:29 AM
yeah from what I've heard of My Solution it wouldn't be out-of-place on the Love You album, if indeed it was absolutely necessary to revive and include a dated recording at all.  In other word(s) - 'Why'?

When Love You first came out I viewed Good Time as a certified beach boys gyp, because I'd already heard the song a lot on the Spring L.P. which I bought in 1973.  There was absolutely no need for Brian or the group as a whole to pass it off as a Beach Boys recording later in life because A) their version doesn't add anything substantial to it (that it was actually recorded for Sunflower winds up being irrelevant), and B) the song is a neat little curiousity and doesn't merit repeating since the Spring version gave it all anybody could have IMO.  I imagine the song was resurrected because the Spring L.P. hardly sold at all and the group therefore thought the tune had been 'wasted' and so not familiar enough to the public

mr kessel can be seen here in this 1966 sonny & cher recording session film but unfortunately I don't think he has that mandolin-type guitar there:

94  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Piano on Darlin' on: February 28, 2017, 10:00:34 AM
two ways to look at it and the other's of course Brian could be interested (in a Bluthner) BECAUSE the beatles utilized it (if he knew).  pocket change (for him)?  well that's also debatable.

not that I have one, I vowed to stick w/ made in USA's, an old Lyon-Healy grand plus Charles Walters (last USA mfgr, w/ original pratt-read action) console
95  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Piano on Darlin' on: February 28, 2017, 07:47:35 AM
what, 5 pianos there and no Bluthner?

I'm quite fine with:

I WANNA PICK YOU UP and then hearing AIRPLANE (from BB Love You)

AT MY WINDOW and then COOL COOL WATER (from Sunflower)


100% in agreement with the already mentioned WALK ON BY and then OL'  MAN RIVER

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
