Going from Ten Little Indians to Getcha Back is a giant WTF

There is so much in those vaults -- so much A-quality brilliant work, just laying there only getting MORE unheard and MORE unreleased.

This isn't simply alternate takes of "Sexy Sadie" or "Racing In The Street" with different lyrics: this is MAJOR S HIT. Important work. Art that changes the story. Art that will inspire more and NEW art.

Paying the proper attention to issuing this unheard music -- studio and live -- should be the primary goal for all involved. 

I personally am stoked to hear whatever vault recordings we might hear, especially if we get to hear unrecorded Brian stuff from the so-called "lost" years

Everything Jude said is right.

2012 was a beautiful fluke.

The ultimate fact is that. . .

The vault is the reunion.
The vault is the star.
The vault is the future.


Whatever else happens -- be it joint promotional events, outsourced musical products -- it's what's in those vaults that MATTERS.
Everything else is everything else.


100% on the money

For Brian it may be a tad different as he was either born that way or ended up deaf as a child. For me itís happened more and more over time.

Iím partially deaf in my left ear. I mix in headphones and adjust the levels for monitoring purposes

That was pretty cool. Like the idea of Brian talking with a high school buddy after some years. We often forget that our heroes are people first. The story of imitating the teacher was hilarious

Honestly, everything about the 2012 tour and album was so great that I don't want to jinx it. Even if they were to come up with some great song in a real group effort(not just mainly a vehicle for Brian and Mike to reunite), the chance of them fucking it all up somehow is to great. Except for the tail end of the reunion(the spectacular way it all went to sh*t), the year 2012 was such a great gift for Beach Boys fans. There was a general good vibe in the fan community, and everything was just so.... "perfect". Let's not ruin it by trying to have lightning strike twice. I'd rather have the five surviving members reunite as friends and family than anything else.

Pretty much how I feel

A message via social media is not ďbeing in contact ď with Brian.

Who cares??

We need a special edition of Friends period.

We do but Iím sure weíll get one

Speaking of going on and off, I'll never forget the first BW show I went to back in 2004. He was about to leave the stage before Love and Mercy, still had the bass strapped on, ran like hell to the side...then ran back, put the bass on the ground, then proceeded to finish running back off the stage LOL  Still one of my all time favorite BW moments

It's a beautiful thing.  Brian making us laugh is almost as great as his music.  I remember when he was trying to rush off-stage when he got caught in the spotlight that was on the band member he was behind.  He froze in place. It was hilarious.  There will never be another Brian.

Have said this for years, but there seriously needs to be a book entitled "The Wit and Wisdom of Brian Wilson" featuring great Brian-isms. I'd love to write it, personally.

Picture is from 2016, but I love it Smiley

Glad to know the surgery went well! Back pain is excruciating...I know all too well!
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Brian to have back surgery Re: Brian Wilson - 2018 Tour Thread on: May 01, 2018, 11:39:40 AM
Hopefully this will alleviate some of the pain.  Sucks that the tour will be postponed but his health comes first.

I remember reading something many years ago where Brian was talking about how special "In My Room" was. He said he taught Dennis and Carl the song "Ivory Tower," and they would sing it softly in three-part harmony in their room after Murry would get angry and violent. It would bring them comfort.

Maybe that's what she was referring to, and said "recording" by mistake.

A young, popular artist admires Brian's work and asked him to appear on her album. We don't have to go all Andrew G. Doe on her if her facts aren't 100 percent correct.

Personally, I like Ricky's lead on this, but the song doesn't sound very "Beach Boys"....sounds more like a Doobie Brothers song (not a bad thing IMHO)

Is it bad that I have no idea who she is?

My daughter was extremely upset as FM is one of her favorite bands of all time and we were hoping to catch a show this year with the full lineup.

Crack at your love, I'm so Lonely, California Calling,  and especially It's just a matter of time are down near the bottom of the pantheon of BB songs for me, and She Believes in Love Again is just meh. Passing Friend would be
 better if it were shorter, but I actually like it. Other than that, I really like the rest of the album
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian in 1985 Studio Footage on: April 13, 2018, 09:24:06 AM
Carl's '85 tunes are definitely the highlights. 'Where I Belong' is my favorite Beach Boys song of the '80s (Brian's 'Melt Away' is my favorite BBs-related and I think I like it more than WIB).

'It's Gettin' Late is a close second though. God I love that song. Carl's vocal is unreal. It surprises even me how often I listen (with glee) to it. 'Maybe I Don't Know' is really strong too.

Should we just go ahead and rename this thread "The Beach Boys '85 Appreciation Thread'? :D

Works for me!
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian in 1985 Studio Footage on: April 12, 2018, 10:51:59 AM
I love most of BB85 but honestly Brianís contributions bring the album down (which is very difficult for me to say). That said, IMHO it features the best vocals of Carlís career.
