When Ricky and Blondie left it all went pretty much downhill from there... Love You album is an exception though.

Well, this thread escalated quickly Wink

Lovely discussion, guys. I guess "my" version doesn't really fit the 1972 standard. Which is fine. I still think Marcella is a killer track. I do prefer the live version, though.

Marcella is one of my favourite tracks, but I think its rather slow pace doesn't do the song justice. I made this years ago and, to me, it sounds much better now (maybe a tad too fast):

What do you think? I also think it could have used a heavier guitar tone (like they did in the live versions). A very underrated track overall and one which could have been a big hit, IMHO.

This is a stunning track.

And while you're at it, you might as well enjoy the other obvious Brian tribute from Athens, Georgia:

Thanks for sharing this track. I love it!

Probably posted before, but this track is such a beautiful nod towards Brian and the Pet Sounds album. Lovely vocals and instrumentation (notice the bass harmonica for example).

Looking forward to any live material.

I really hope the 72-73 era will be covered as well some day. They were such a great live act back then.

Mark Linett has said that a box for In Concert is a possibiltiy


That would be amazing Smiley

All Dressed Up For School is ace. Love Carl's lead.

I'm not a big fan of the studio version, any studio version. Mostly because of the muddy mix.

Give me the In Concert version instead.
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: MIC Disc 5 - First 10 tracks on: October 02, 2013, 11:40:42 AM
A separate live disc would have been even better. Disc 5 is quite odd. Going from 2012 back to a live recording from 1965.

Pitter Patter must be one of their most underrated songs ever. It's such a clever tune. Those harmonies are amazing.

12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Mike Love Love Thread on: September 24, 2013, 11:46:39 AM
His bass vocals are some of the best Smiley
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: All I Want To Do (live) - MIC on: September 07, 2013, 03:38:33 AM
Hmmm, I always thought that it was Ed Carter playing lead guitar on this track  Undecided

Me too. Sounds very much like his style.
14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Blondie Chaplin to Guest with BW on Some Dates on: September 06, 2013, 10:15:16 AM
He should have been part of the C50 tour as well. Great news, nonetheless!

Wow. So much energy and the mix is great.

Who's the drummer on I Can Hear Music (live)? Bobby?
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: So...What is your favorite MIC track? on: September 04, 2013, 12:31:52 PM
I really dig Mona Kani right now

I think the MIC version is fine, really.

I had sex with my copy. Does that count?
20  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What are your favorite Beach Boys sessions? on: September 04, 2013, 10:55:13 AM
Help Me Rhonda session. A classic. Murray calling Al 'sweetheart' or something like that, oh boy.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Post Release MIC Track Discussion on: September 03, 2013, 10:02:23 AM
Did anyone else notice the talking during the Slip On Through acapella mix? Around 1:46. Sounds like Brian.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Okay....... MIC or the Smile Sessions on: September 03, 2013, 06:31:40 AM
MIC

23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Post Release MIC Track Discussion on: September 03, 2013, 06:30:49 AM
Am I the only one who really digs this mix of Sail Plane Song?

It's quirky, psychedelic, but it really works somehow. Nice little experiment.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Post Release MIC Track Discussion on: September 01, 2013, 12:46:53 PM
It's a great set, but it's a shame the Blondie/Ricky era is practically overlooked.

Where is Hard Times, We Got Love, It's A New Day, Carry Me Home? Or a different live Leaving This Town?

Also, the live set could have lived without all the 90s performances, except for Summer In Paradise. Sail On Sailor with Carl is nice, but it features a cheap piano and synths.

The BBs deserve a live box set, too Smiley

There's a fan made stereo mix of Wild Honey out there. It's pretty great!
