I just got back from seeing it at the Arclight in Hollywood. I loved it. I really liked that it wasn't made for someone who doesn't know who Brian Wilson is. A typical bio pic would be non stop exposition explaining who Brian and the Beach Boys are and what they are doing. Very well done.

I especially liked the sound collages for the audio hallucinations. I wonder if that is in fact how Brian experiences the world.

Maybe this has been asked already, but how do we ask Brian our question?

is it the same mono mix used for the 40th anniversary release?
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Pet Sounds 2012 Remaster on: September 27, 2012, 07:16:52 PM

Does anyone know if the Pet Sounds 2012 remaster a new mono mix and new stereo mix? Are they using the same mono from the 40th anniversary release?

I didn't have the patience to look through all 85 pages of the other thread.

thanks!

I'm reading "Something To Do With Death" a biography of Sergio Leone by Christopher Frayling.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Artwork is out (oh no) on: April 28, 2012, 01:32:49 PM

I like it. It has a 60's retro vibe. The artwork is much better than anything found on Brian's solo albums, even that Peter Blake album cover for Getting In Over My Head sucked.

Smile is largely instrumental due to the nature of the project being unfinished.

True, but I've often wondered what would be the problem with presenting Smile '67 as something like:

Our Prayer/Gee
Heroes and Villains
My Only Sunshine
Cabin Essence
Vegetables
Wonderful
Mrs. O'Leary's Cow
Surf's Up
Wind Chimes
Good Vibrations
You're Welcome

Maybe throw in parts of "Cool, Cool Water" or "Diamond Head" or whatever if you're feeling crazy and need some water with your Smile. You could use a couple of the weird humor attempts as skits to fill out the running time, maybe placing them with some of the unused instrumentals. Add in the rest of the songs as bonuses. If you ask me, that's better than the trying to mimic BWPS, which took an everything and the kitchen sink approach that really highlights the unfinished quality of some of the other songs.

I agree with you completely. That is an album Brian could have released in '67. I don't like the BWPS sequencing one bit.

Frankly, this one sounds a lot more like a Brian put-on story than a Brian memory-loss story.

The more I've thought about it, the more I'm starting to think you're right.  He probably thought it was funny making all these big-name people introduce him to John. Maybe he wanted to see how many of them he could get to do it before they caught on.  Mental illness or not, it certainly sounds like something Brian would do.



I agree. If this actually happened, it sounds like a put on.

"Smile is the name of the new Beach Boys album which will be released in August 2011, and with a happy album cover, the really happy sounds inside and a happy in-store display piece you can’t miss, we’re sure to sell a million units. In August."

 LOL
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: How much has leaked? on: May 06, 2011, 08:00:55 PM

I think I remember reading about Carl Wilson and Steve Desper transferring the SMiLE tapes to different tape stock, and listening to the sessions, around the time of the Surf's Up album.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: How much has leaked? on: April 08, 2011, 10:40:16 AM
Most of the tapes that were leaked are backing tracks. Very few vocals, so I bet we get a ton of that.

I have this bad feeling that, as most of the vocals were done at Columbia, they may have gone the way of the "GV" vocal multitracks in the spring 1967 turn-out.  Shocked

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!  Angry
