I don’t agree – I think this was a great, great article – actually summarizing my own feelings about the band at that time – giving credits to the guys as a band, and to the songs and albums in a way I would put it myself. Never mind the flaws or errors – not important – it’s the overall understanding of the BB and their importance through this period that matters.  Thx for sharing.

Hi Smilers -
I've been around these shores for quite some time - a huge Brian and Dennis fan since 1976 – but also a singer/songwriter for some 30 years, releasing 9 albums over the years with my own stuff:)  -- In 2018 I spent some time with Linett mastering my album that came out that year -- Now this year; a new album has just been released; Skinny Songs -- please listen!:)

Short report from Oslo show:
Yeah, Brian fell off his chair for the encore – it looked dramatic – The Spektrum fell silent, 3000 people held their breath - Paul Mertens and three others got him back on his feet. This was just before going into GV. Brian asked if we wanted some Bad Vibrations!:), -  well seated again he got into song as if nothing had happened.
Highlights from the show; Wake the world/add som music. Wild honey/Sail on Sailor with Blondie in top form. 2,5 hours, with intermission.
I was surprised how many leads Brian took throughout the show – almost all leads on PS. Great reviews in all news papers here.

 ... which means there are definitely more dates added to the European tour - He will be playing our biggest arena, Oslo Spektrum, with 8200 capacity - which seems a bit ambitious -- but I'll be there - welcome, Brian!

… Brad Mehldau is a great jazz pianist – check out his beautiful, though demanding, 16:44 minute version of GOK on his newly released ’10 years solo live’ on Nonesuch Records – on Spotify, Tidal …

I am on holiday up in the mountains - far away from both California and stable Internett connection - but
check out NRK.no and the programme NITIMEN - (sorry, very Norwegian) - but
the best i can do for the moment (the streaming is available in an hour from now, I guess)

But it is true👼

According to amazon.jp the bonus track on the japanese edition is Revival of Love (2012 Version) - do I read japanese? No. Google translate usually does.

One more down! Oslo Spektrum 31. July - tickets on sale now.

Haha - yes, why Norway - TSS debuted on #13 this week - above Pink Floyd which has always been huge here - the Beach Boys never really were. Until 2004 - BWPS sold amazingly 12 ooo copies here - so where did all the norwegians fans come from during the last 6-7years? - they surely weren't there when I grew up - digging the Beach Boys in this country has always been a lonely road travelling Smiley

Since 1982, when meeting up at Lars' place here in Oslo, and his friend Tor had brought his small, delicate tape suitcase - wich contained, among various serious rarities, cassettes with loads of Smile stuff -- I was 17 and already deep into the Smile fandom - lit by reading about it in Leaf's BB and the California Myth -  the greatest Smile moment so far: - running over to the local postoffice and picking up the first LP -boot edition of Smile shipped from a New York based record store in 1984 ---   Smileomanic for at least 30 years ---
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Smile release date and price, it seems on: April 13, 2011, 12:53:46 AM
Nah, she didnt say anything about that in her email - however, she rather optimistically promised to come back asap
on correct date --- funny, though - that EMI Norway has removed all info - wonder if they received a call from overseas yesterday
after some Capitol executive had been reading the posts here --
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Smile release date and price, it seems on: April 13, 2011, 12:27:21 AM
Yup - I contacted EMI Norway today - they confirmed the date was wrong and that date was not official yet. Back to zero Tongue
20  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: SMiLE Sessions box set! on: April 12, 2011, 06:59:56 AM
Anyone trust this?

Gives a June 6 release date and an EMI catalogue number.

http://cdon.eu/music/beach_boys/the_smile_sessions_-_box_set-14166753

I have bought from this outfit before though not entirely satisfactorily – order took a loooong time to be despatched (in fact so long I assumed they'd cancelled the order and I bought a duplicate elsewhere which arrived within a couple of days) and proved surprisingly expensive despite free shipping.



I'm not sure if I can trust it, but if it's true I will buy you a stiff drink for bringing it to my attention. 6th of June? Holy merda!  Grin Grin Grin Grin

Curiously, if you google EMI-50999 -276582  smile sessions, the top hit is EMI Music Norway and underneath it reads:

THE BEACH BOYS, The Smile Sessions (Limited), 50999 0276582 2 ... EMI Music Norway AS respekterer hensynet til personvernet. Les mer om personvern her. ...

but click the page and the June releases section is empty.

Edit: My mistake, under Monday 30th May  it reads Beach Boys - The Smile Sessions (Limited) - 50999 0276582 2

And a similar page here: http://emi.no/nyhetsskriv_faro/releaseplan.asp

This has the same info under the date: 3rd June!
Funny that EMI here in Norway, total population 4,5 mill, is the first to reveal the release date - because that is ofcourse what this is; the confirmation we've all been waiting for. Somebody in EMI's norwegian market dep. obviously didnt fully understand  the english message; NOT TO BE REVEALED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! Cheesy
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Anyone here with Spotify ? on: February 03, 2011, 01:25:14 AM
Even more odd; you can buy some of these tunes on iTunes:

22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: A new Tweet from Brians Account.... on: October 07, 2009, 01:53:34 AM
Big announcement; is that positive or negative? Could be the announcement of a BB-reunion but also a BW retirement; a farewell tour of 2010.

Hey, guys, come on – a hurried broadcasted show like this is ofcourse not intended for the sceptics, and def not for heavy analyzing –The producer of this broadcast obviously doesn’t know Brians story, and therefore doesn’t know what we know; – that Brian, unlike other famous singers, needs to be, er, slightly buried in the mix  – That said; the show in Oslo was great – no art, alright, but the sound/mix was truly fantastic (yes, Marcella was a highlight) – and ALL Norwegian papers were in awe giving him top reviews.  Brian’s akwardness, his humour, jokes, 12 times ’thank you for coming tonight’ etc, in some akward way worked in front of these 5000 people – yes, the band was suffering under the absence of Darian and Scott, and obv. suffering from heavy jetlag, Jeff looked ill, Brian’s voice were by far weaker than in Boston las October (when it was exceptional) etc. Still – it will rank as one of my alltime fave Brian shows - but then again - I'm norwegian -
