I'd love a Brother-era rarities and outtakes compilation, or even a Sunflower/Surfs Up sessions box set.

This.

I actually dig this album...maybe more than most for sentimental reasons.  But putting sentiment aside, I think it really is solid.  The only tune I DON'T like is "When Girls Get Together".  The title track I like slightly less than the rest but it's really quite a good LP.

For the record, and not with popular opinion, I like Beach Boys '85 quite a lot too.

Anybody saying Melinda is worse than Landy are a complete nutcase.

I didn't say worse.  I implied that I believe Melinda is also controlling Brian and the message.
Do you have proof to back up your libelous statement?

I voiced an opinion counselor.  Get your terminology correct.

I'm pretty sure that Melinda's liberation of Brian from Landy was just a case of hopping out of the frying pan and into the fire.

I'm pretty sure that this is one of the most brainless observations in the entire history of this forum.

No... no that's unfair. I'm not pretty sure, or even probably sure: I'm certain.  Smiley



You know you are fuct when the guy accused of being on Mike's payroll to spread anti-Brian/Melinda sentiment tells you that your anti-Melinda statement is "one of the most brainless observations in the entire history of this forum."

Mods, seriously, this kind of slander, against a band members family member, with zero basis in fact, should not be tolerated.  If Mike or Brian says or does something crazy it's fair game.  Hell, if Melinda said or did something crazy it's fair game.  But this is a baseless accusation as it equates Brian's loving wife with the evil Eugene Landy.  Someone please call this guy out if it hasn't happened already.

Heh...dramatic much?

Is it really though?

Yes it REALLY is.

I keep forgetting about the ridiculous myopia in this forum.

We are poor, and poor is one of three things people don't want to be. Right next to sick, and dead.

I think it's just a lame excuse on Mike's part. he's not really interested in making new music. he's finally got everything exactly the way he wants it: he is the front and center star of the show, he's playing 95% hits and songs that are 25-50 years old, and he is essentially the head of the Beach Boys organization... he controls the name, the dates, and the deals.


I could be wrong. but if Mike really does just want time to get alone with his cousin, he is fooling himself if he thinks Melinda or anyone but Brian is keeping it from happening. Brian knows exactly what he wants at this stage in the game.

Such certainty !  Such insight !!! Such insider knowledge !!!!!  No wonder it was so easy for you to get your name up on the video screen - you know who has the negatives, and where the bodies are buried. I bend my knee and bow my head in tribute, I am as nothing to your Olympian omniscience. All hail bossaroo !!   Bow Bow Bow Bow Bow Bow Bow Bow Bow Bow Bow Bow Bow Bow Bow Bow

Probably...

settle down big guy, I never claimed to be certain of anything hence the use of phrases like "I think" and "I could be wrong". I do feel fairly certain however that Brian has no desire to be alone in a room with Mike Love, because... does ANYBODY??

and the only reason I got my name on the video screen is because Mike liked my photoshop of him shooting lightning bolts out of his fingers, apparently missing the joke altogether.

Probably...

Meh...don't sweat it.  Doe-boy can't stand it when he's not the only one spouting faux insider knowledge on the board.

With special emphasis on Pet Sounds and Good Vibrations.  Ugh...lets put emphasis on the REST of the story for a change...we all know and love the PS/GV deal but we've read about it 50 million times.

I was there...almost front row center.  Blondie did a great job too.

Took my 7 year old with me to a 10:15am showing in Long Beach, CA at a Regal Theater.  The theater was half full.  Sounds was fantastic.

All I can say is that the film was incredibly well done and riveting.  I was left feeling mildly disturbed for the rest of the day.  Wonderful stuff.  Will probably see 25 more times.
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: So Tough question: on: June 05, 2015, 10:48:40 AM
Would Carl and the passions-So tough be considered an alias/pseudonym or side project album ? Esp since it sounds nothing like the BBs and no album before or after.. the double LP with Pet Sounds doesn't even say beach boys on it..

That's not a tough question at all.  Wink  It is not even in the slightest a side project.  And btw it sounds very similar to Holland and somewhat similar to LA.

I really think that Getcha Back kept The Beach Boys 1985 album from sinking like a stone.  

I'd bet my last dollar that the vast majority bought "Getcha Back" on the Made In USA compilation.

It's all just opinion, but I think LA (Light Album) is solid from tracks 1-10, there's nothing that needs to be "saved."

This.  Solid all the way thru except for Shortenin' Bread.
