The lead on "Help Me, Rhonda" was handles by Al, Dennis and Carl at various times.
"Sail On, Sailor" has had Blondie, Billy and Carl on lead.

Oh yes of course S.O.S

Yes, on MiC

Mike sang it cause they wanted to feature their new single but mike needed to do something and if carl sang it then they also were doing good vibrations then it would be a total carl-fest and mike was having none of that so the comprimise was to do the single but w/ mike and then give it over to carl for vibrations/ this has to be it

I hope the reviewers don't get too rough on this tour. I don't closely follow The Zombies, but I caught their TV performance recently doing "Time of the Season" and Blunstone sounded pretty warbly, with a seemingly uncontrollable excessive vibrato when having to sing old falsetto-ish lines in full-voice.

no, thats how the song is my guy- Colin sounds the same as he always did, he has not destroyed his voice from year after year of touring....because he didnt do that

10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian live webcast tonite on: May 05, 2019, 11:47:16 PM
they had weird shots for every band dawg- not a lot of detail was put into the production, but i was happy they did it for everyone, but yea


I was able to download it. Inbox me if you want me to send it to you.

Did anyone else notice the extreme lack of close-ups of Brian? Even on songs where he was singing lead, they would have a close up of literally every band member but him. I watched the whole concert twice and only saw a couple close-ups (still pretty far away) of Brian, but totally tight shots of Al, Matt (nice to see him back, although I also did like Rob), and everyone else. Kinda strange. Was this at the insistence of the producers because of Brian's, how should I put this, sometimes somber appearance? Did someone deem that he was having an "off" night or something?

I love Brian, but oh man, his vocals were all over the place. That doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the show. I thoroughly did, and I'll probably watch it again a million times. The band is ON FIRE here!! Matt absolutely shines on Let Him Run Wild. Al, of all places, totally rocked on Shut Down, Darian sounded great on Darlin, I love Nicky Wonder's Fender Bass on Dance Dance Dance.

This show overwhelmed me with bitter-sweetness, something I've felt every time I've seen Brian in person, but nothing has ever compared to the feeling I got from watching this video. The band is amazing. The music is amazing. Happy crowd. That was all great, but to hear Brian's voice cracking on every line of God Only Knows just hurts. Surely, like someone has already mentioned, many of these songs keys (and maybe tempos) should be adjusted for Bri. I know Brian has never really been comfortable on stage, like someone like Mike Love, but I haven't seen him *this uncomfortable* since 1981 or immediate-post Landy years. In shots where he can be seen, He looks genuinely tense and unhappy. I know there's not much he can do if he already committed to doing a show and is having an ""off" night. He doesn't want to retire, so this is his job. I just wish accommodations could be made, musical or otherwise, to ensure that Brian is having a nice time. I know he as a nice chair he loves backstage, why not bring it out to the piano ??  LOL LOL I know that sounds goofy, but Dave Grohl had a fricken guitar throne!!! If it made Bri comfortable, then great! Anything like that to make him happier. He certainly didn't look happy last night.

I Don't mean to be too much of a downer. I loved the show. I'm thankful that Brian is still performing.

Al was a little hoarse but not in a horrible way hes been working a TON and i mean arlo i saw last week was wayyyyy more hoarse and he was still great and so al was definetly really great but still a little hoarse but i still wish he was featured more this show, would of been nice to add cal saga or honkin
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian live webcast tonite on: May 05, 2019, 11:43:22 PM
i liked when blondie thanked brian and al for "bringing him to this country 50 yrs ago"- I didn't really realise that but i guess thats accurate, they probably helped him come here like  or were instrumental in it.  Brian did miss a lot of lines and looked even less animated than usual.  A brian highlight for me was Salt Lake City, a suprise.  Worst moment of the night Huh anyone?   Darians lead on "Darlin'"- wasnt into it dawg.

Good observation - however, Mike sang his original bass part in 2012 as well.

I JUST WANT TO SAY SOMETHING.  I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING.  THE BEACH BOYS, "AMERICA'S BAND" AS THEY WERE DUBBED, WERE JUST THAT.  although they were formed by white people, the beach boys brought in blacks, filipinos, puerto ricans, and even greeks (stamos, lol). to contribute to the group sound.   The spirit of america indeed!

are we seriously getting a beach boys reunion- do you think brian will be involved, or will it be more like al & david marks joining up with mike n bruce.  or would it be more like 2012 with a mix of brian band and mike band.

Digitally extracted stereo!?!?  Is this just duophonic for the 21st century?  I can't believe they're still concerned with this-
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Last Beach Boys song you heard on the radio on: April 06, 2019, 09:44:34 PM

NOT EVEN CLOSE-- NIGHT AND DAY. NIGHT AND DAY----------


i just did a simltaneaous comparison, where i have them both on an a/b switch-----WOW..............PASTMASTERS=totally way more drenched in thick reverb compared to our car club.  our car club version 2 is a way better sounding tape- that is MY favorite--- by farrrrrrrrrrrr
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / classic beach boys sound invloves reverb on: April 06, 2019, 09:35:13 PM
god so it is VERY noticible i think- our car club PASTMASTERS......

...compared to the Sea of Tunes Surfer girl set versions (2 stereo mixes)......

-the REVERB on the background vox..............am i hearing this correctly? it seems noticabily different im listening to all 3 in a row
