They confuse Dennis's All I Want To Do with Brian and Mike's All I Wanna Do.

There better be Grammy awards for this.
Not just the Grammy. The Nobel for promoting global harmony.

It's amazing to me how a new mix can breathe so much life and vivid colour into music one is well acquainted with.

Nitpicking but the Sunflower and Surf's Up albums themselves were just remastered, not remixed.
I still sometimes hear things I didn't before, and are there longer fades?

I actually got a bit emotional when I got to the Forever track and backing vocals.

Me too.

Two initial thoughts and a question before I write my music column for likely publication Sept. 4.

1. What life-affirming music.
2. Beatles who?
3. I don't have the box at this point (listening via streaming) so I'd like to know who gets the credit this time for producing Susie Cincinnati. (The Beach Boys as on the single, Brian as on 15 Big Ones or Al as on Best of the Brother Years).
Kudos to all who worked on this box and bringing out the beautiful parts that were previously buried in the music.

Nice extra Brian falsetto on the 'Til I Die tag.

Currently hearing Sloop John B from Knebworth, 1980.

I will very, very. very happily be writing about this in my next music column.

CD 5. Bonus Disc

Oh my god

How is it not possible for me to get the 5CD set, the 2 CD and the Vinyl box set
Indeed. But I guess the only stereo Sound of Free will be the session excerpt.

Bruce is much more interesting than his latter day stage persona, his solo records, or his loyalty to Mike would suggest. I'd love to read his autobiography but he's said several times over the years that he's not going to write one.
I preordered the Selvin book. I consider it a substitute to a Bruce book.

Speaking of unreleased surround-related material, Van Dyke Parks has revelaed on Twitter that a surround mix of his Song Cycle LP was created, but no one wants to release it.

Oh my GOD. Id kill for that. Where did he say that? Any way we can help? A go fund me?
Recently on Twitter. He said this in 2009: Four months ago I was moving house and I found the master tape of Song Cycle in a garage, so I had it digitalized, to save it for my grandchildren. And we're going to put it out again in 5.1 surround sound. It'll be as manic as before but it'll have much better clarity."

Hat tip Quadraphonic Quad: "Four months ago I was moving house and I found the master tape of Song Cycle in a garage, so I had it digitalized, to save it for my grandchildren.

On Twitter: I actually asked him about a surround mix, and he responded to someone else to the affirmative.

Hope I can write an article update soon.

Episode 5 should include the tarmac confrontation.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: February 22, 2021, 05:28:26 PM
Was Van Dyke Parks interviewed for the set? A while ago, he indicated on Twitter that no interview took place. Maybe one took place since?
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian's vocal decline - when is it first noticeable to you? on: January 25, 2021, 05:41:23 PM
Arriving a bit late here, but I too was fascinated by Brian's vocal (and physical) transformation, so much so I decided to make a (somewhat) comprehensive video demonstrating its evolution a little while back: https://youtu.be/BaLkubqbzeo

In case you wanted a 'quick' 44 minute summation of 60 years of singing and 78 years of living.
I've watched the video several times and love it. I'm struck that Brian looks quite happy singing at the piano during the MIU sessions while Al is behind him with a guitar. Looks good too.

Sail Plane Song, All I Wanna Do.

Beach Boys Love You should be retitled Brianisms.

"And the more we listened the more we learned you know. And then along comes Chuck Berry and Mike Love and Jan&Dean and the whole creation of Rock'n'Roll...."

Re-watching that interview right now as well.  Smiley Mike must have really soaked that one up.
My favorite part of that interview is at 14:10 when Bruce says part of the backing vocals for I Just Wasn't Made For These Times (IIRC) was in Spanish. Al says "what do you mean Spanish?" Then Brian sings that very part and Al says "I'll be a son of a gun, c'mon, you're putting me on!." Bruce then says Al "must have been putting money in the meter for your car." And Brian's there, pokerfaced.
