Here's a TV interview with Carl who was cutting his second solo album at that time. He also talks about Brian just having entered his second Landy term, working with Skunk Baxter and other stuff.

Enjoyed that.  Carl sometimes comes across a little too 'guarded' in interviews IMO, but here he seems happy and relaxed.

Listened to a few tracks before I was cut off! My favourites among the ones I heard are "Rock And Roll" and "Jade". Love the vibe! Wink

Thanks JK.  You've been positive about my stuff before - which I really appreciate! 

The album is starting to get some good reaction.  Here's one review... https://janglepophub.home.blog/2019/05/02/album-review-parloursounds-by-james-clarke-five-2019-the-beautiful-music/

Just to let you know that the new(ish) album by James Clarke Five - ParlourSounds - is now available on CD.   Of course you can download it from iTunes and Apple Music too, but when push comes to shove, you just can't beat those three dimensions!  Smiley

Totally agree re Aren't You Glad.  The Live in London version is wonderful.  I'd also nominate Let The Wind Blow live '73, and also (perhaps more controversially?) Don't Worry Baby.
18  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: NEW JAMES CLARKE FIVE SONG: What Do You Know About Ray? on: May 01, 2018, 05:12:21 PM

A beautiful song beautifully done, James. Only to be expected, of course...

Unfortunately I can't remember Ray Martine at all--that's odd, considering my age. I must check him out on YouTube.

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/alt.obituaries/rw1nKjgrLfo


Thank you very much Sir.

Martine is ultra-obscure and virtually forgotten now, but I am on a mission to get him the posthumous credit he deserves!

Oh I'm never far from a BB influence - or two!   Wink

Thanks for giving it a listen.

Is there any footage at all of Glen Campbell performing with the BB's?
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys Most Challenging Song (Instrumentally) on: August 14, 2017, 05:08:08 AM
"I Just Wasn't Made For These Times" is pretty brutal to negotiate in terms of the chord sequence.

The hardest song I've ever had to personally work out and learn of the Beach Boys (out of probably 70 songs over the years) was "Long Promised Road," which was Carl's.

Not wishing to blow my own trumpet (OK maybe just a bit...) but this is my voice / guitar version of I Just Wasn't Made for These Times.  As you'll see in the comments, I get many replies asking for the chord charts. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LgZvONpoOw

That's stunning, J. Obviously you've had to choose what to play and what not, but the feel is that of the original. And the theremin swoop towards the end is quite something. Proficiat!

I was straining to hear the trumpet. Was it edited out? Smokin

 LOL

I'm still trying to perfect my 'muted trumpeter swan', but I'm finding costume a bit uncomfortable.   Wink
