Excellent work - all these videos have been enlightening.

Enjoyed the episode on David Marks - keep it up.  It's really a great show.

Al sang Susie Cincinnati Saturday night at Belterra in Indiana.  That was unexpected and sounded great.

Time to Take "Love You" on the road!

As an aside - I think in the Tom Nolan article from Rolling Stone in 70 or 71 Brian mentions Marilyn getting him a new piano for he 30th birthday.  He mentioned that some of the "keys stick".  I believe it was a Steinway.  So much for the Chickering at that point.
6  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Piano on Darlin' on: February 15, 2017, 08:46:33 AM
It was a Chickering grand - not sure of the size.  It was sold to a collector in the late 70s.  I remember seeing the sale notice in the fan club news letter.  Anyone know who's got it?
7  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Piano on Darlin' on: February 10, 2017, 07:19:03 AM
This was recorded in Brian's home studio.  Love that piano on so many tracks of that era - especially Here Comes the Night.
8  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The current fate of musical instruments heard on classic BB recordings on: January 30, 2017, 11:26:30 AM
I recall Brian's Chickering grand piano being for sale in the late 70s, early 80s in the BBFUN newsletter.  I don't remember who bought it.  Would love to know the whereabouts of Brian's early sunburst and white Precision bass's.  Maybe he still has 'em.
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian's Book Discussion Thread. on: October 17, 2016, 08:16:37 AM
Brian states that David Anderle was involved in setting up Brother Records with Warner/Reprise in 1970 - is that correct?  I thought his involvement was limited to the 67 Brother deal with Capital that was relatively short-lived.

It's pathetic really and difficult for me to get all worked up as it's more of the same. 
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1983 SMiLE bootleg. Anywhere online to hear it?? on: August 24, 2016, 06:25:47 AM
I heard a fan tape about a year before the 1st vinyl boot - those were interesting and exciting times.  I still have those original boots - the first and second edition - are they collectable?

At that point I had no hope that BDW would ever make any meaningful music again or that we would ever hear anything approaching a completed SMiLE.  In many ways it has worked out much better than I ever could have dreamed.
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1983 SMiLE bootleg. Anywhere online to hear it?? on: August 23, 2016, 10:12:43 AM
That would involve naming names .
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 'Wild Honey' version of \ on: August 09, 2016, 10:55:45 AM
Was this the Chickering piano?  That one was a grand and I believe was around in 66.

Yep - that was me.  Grin

Caught the Horseshoe gig - that's two in one week after the Hollywood Bowl Sunday.  Pretty much identical shows in terms of the sets.  Brian seemed a bit more engaged although he still half way talks through some of the songs with a staccato like meter.  Blonde was awesome, Al was solid.  Matt Jardine is killing the falsetto parts - best I've hear in years.  Good to see Billy Hinche on the keys, too bad he doesn't get to play any guitar in the shows as he can certainly rip it up.  Looked to be sold out with an engaged audience.   Pretty good end to a fantastic week.

The Till I Die scene is amazing film making.  I kind of wish Murry had been fleshed out a bit more - better than I ever expected overall.  What a great way to follow NPP.
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Al Jardine as a guitarist. on: May 22, 2015, 08:36:56 PM
It's pretty obvious that Al's a solid guitarist - playing the chord changes to a set of Beach Boy songs is no small feat.  Now that being said, he's not a blues/rock soloist style of guitar player.  He's really strong on bass as well.
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Lost most of my CD collection to flooding on: April 11, 2015, 09:06:16 AM
Lost hundreds of LPs in the 90s under similar circumstances.
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Carl and Al's guitars on: April 09, 2015, 08:50:31 PM
I've been hankering for the Keith Partridge signature Strat myself.

Meat and potatos BW post 1995.  Nice and pleasant - sounds kind of like the theme to a TV show.

Some times it's just better to listen than be heard.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Spend October 6th w/ Brian on: September 07, 2014, 06:25:29 PM
Sold out!
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Rolling Stone - Beach Boys Play Tour - Jeff replaces Christian Love on: May 27, 2014, 05:30:15 AM
Pisces Brothers - sounds about right.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Rolling Stone - Beach Boys Play Tour - Jeff replaces Christian Love on: May 26, 2014, 10:21:38 PM
Mike sang Back in the USSR followed by Dear Prudence.  He also sang a new original about Guru dev - meh.
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Rolling Stone - Beach Boys Play Tour - Jeff replaces Christian Love on: May 25, 2014, 05:46:05 PM
At the Louisville show right now.  Jeff is here and looking relaxed as the show is abot to start.  No surprise guests that I've seen thus far.  My first Mike/Bruce show.
