Looking forward to seeing the Foskett Beach Boys.  I imagine the sound is quite different than the Christian Love Beach Boys.     The added musicianship just has to be a plus as well.  anyone seen this show who has seen M & B in recent years without him?   I must have missed a discussion of this........How do the shows compare?

Just saw the Beach Boys tonight in Tucson, and I will say without any question that I think this is the best they've sounded since Carl died.

They did at least three songs I don't recall hearing the group perform live before ... "Here, Today" (I know, of course, Brian has done this, at least on the Pet Sounds tour), "Good To My Baby", & "You're So Good To Me". If any of these are or have been regulars, chalk it up to an Old Guy's memory. Shortly after the Carl GOK segment, they showed a video (newly discovered, Mike said) of Denny pounding away on his drums while playing an audio of him singing "Do You Wanna Dance?" (not the released version).

Jeffrey definitely does some heavy lifting; in addition to the leads and parts you'd expect from him, he took "Darlin' " tonight. Thought that was Cowsill's.

The other big news... Bruce wore pants. I had to do the package since I got our tickets late, so I did get to speak with him before the show. Apparently others have brought this up before, because he was real quick with his response. Me: "Bruce; you're in Tucson. Where's the shorts?" Bruce: "At the cleaners!" Later, when he signed an old cd I brought, I told him I would have brought "Going Public" but had heard he didn't sign that one. He said he did, and then added "And my next one will be called 'Going Private' ".  I think he's said that before, hasn't he?

One other thought... Their video screens are really terrific. Tons of photos of everybody. A better presentation than I remember from C50.

A really fun night.  

I saw them on New year's eve at a casino show, so we didn't get any of those 3 songs you mentioned. Who sang lead on You're So Good To Me? I don't think that's been on the setlist since Chris Farmer was in the band (apart from the C50 shows of course). I think Jeff sounds great on Darlin.

Was David Marks there on New Year's? I heard he was. Did he take any leads?

An IEM recording of the 12-13-14 Spencer, Iowa show is out there. Really nice quality.

I'm actually really enjoying the instrumental bit at the beginning of Somewhere Near Japan(the album version).

I'd like to hear someone ask…

"So Mike, apart from some flash in the pan Kokomo, the Beach Boys didn't really have a hit new record in all the years between the Brian-produced Rock and Roll Music single in 1976 and the album TWGMTR in 2012.  You musta really missed Cousinn Brian during those 36 years…?"




Just to be nitpicking, I think that "Come go with me" "Wipe out" (he'd surely mention this) and "Getcha back" all were quite succesfull, of course not in the "Kokomo" way. And none of them had very much Brian involvement.
I never listen to it, but isn't Brian probably the most prominent BB on "Wipe Out"?
59  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: *Merged* Brian Wilson current album thread on: November 14, 2014, 02:24:00 PM
From Brian's FB page:

"Brian will be performing his hits and selections from his upcoming album at the famed Venetian in Las Vegas on December 12. Guests appearing on Brian’s upcoming “No Pier Pressure” will also be performing - Al Jardine, Blondie Chaplin, Ricky Fataar, Capitol Cities' Sebu Simian, Nate Ruess from Fun. as well as Jazz trumpeter Mark Isham. More guests to come. Tickets and special room rates available: http://www.venetian.com/entertainme…/shows/brian-wilson.html "

Wow, Blondie and Ricky!

Definitely sounds more like Matt and Brian to me. Can't really hear Jeff if he's there.

I see intro Brian and intro Dennis on here. I know someone posted earlier about Dennis' tribute, but they're not doing one for Brian on The Warmth Of The Sun are they? That would seem...odd.

Anyone got a report about the actual show? My man at the scene said BW and band were pretty off the first night, but good the second.
Well there's this charming individual on Twitter: https://twitter.com/perfectlefts14/status/526272592152248320

A bunch of videos turning up from the Long Beach show:

Another version of She Knows Me...: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_djCVqxafU

Both of these posters have a few others vids on their profiles from the show as well.

Stubhub's been billing the M&B band like that since the C50 reunion tour ended, probably to try and ease confusion over what band was actually playing. Stubhub's just a ticket broker, they don't know anything we don't.  
67  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2015 on: October 13, 2014, 04:21:45 PM
That's how it's billed?
Doesn't look like it: http://www.ticketmaster.com/the-beach-boys-kansas-city-missouri-02-13-2015/event/06004D29E41F3684

Who needs Brian and Al when your band can twirl on command?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tabw7iTxTnY
69  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian's Stock Continues To Rise on: October 08, 2014, 04:46:51 PM
I think we have a lot to thank Melinda for.  Brian seems happy with his life. 

Ray, would I be right in saying you were with Melinda at the Wembley C50 show?  I think I remember Brian making a dedication to you, and he is always happy when he spots Melinda during the shows.
Probably the best clip from the whole tour: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_sMw4_R8YE
70  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike announces Dave will be joining him for three Beach Boys shows on: October 08, 2014, 04:42:14 PM
Dave seems pretty comfortable with the band, and having him there certainly helps with the legitimacy of the band being 'The Beach Boys':

WIBN, don't get excited by the title though, Brian isn't on lead vocal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Bz0GL7PZCY&list=UUi2g1EsN6BcD4nh0o-brJWA
72  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: I'm meeting Mike Love's Beach Boys tomorrow on: September 28, 2014, 01:58:19 PM
I believe the creaking noise gag is on the 1993 box set Paramount show, so it's been around for at least that long. Glad that Bruce Johnst made it a fun time!  Cheesy
73  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian and Al show in CA this Saturday - Special Ticket Offer on: September 28, 2014, 11:23:55 AM
I have to imagine that when Brian's new album comes out and a national tour probably happens that the setlist will get more varied. It also sounds as if the band really hasn't rehearsed much in a while which explains the mostly greatest hits format.
74  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian and Al show in CA this Saturday - Special Ticket Offer on: September 27, 2014, 11:52:48 PM
Looks like they've altered the stage set-up a bit: https://twitter.com/francophile00/status/516071323748282368/photo/1
75  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: I'm meeting Mike Love's Beach Boys tomorrow on: September 26, 2014, 05:22:49 PM
I would probably go with Sunflower myself, as it has some definite highlights for both M&B.

As for things to ask, see if you can find out what M&B's favorite unreleased tracks are. If you do ask that though, be careful to phrase it so Mike can't answer "Goin' To The Beach".
