Thanks for this set.
It clearly is a labour of love.
2  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The 'Caribou' Album (1973-1975) Compilation Mix on: March 25, 2019, 04:58:52 AM
Additional liner notes (by user Peerke from Hoffman board):


The Beach Boys were hot in 1974. They were even elected "Band of the Year" in Rolling Stone, in their end of the year poll. But it was entirely on the strength of their live show….

There was no new material released during that period. Not that they didn't try: not one, but two more unreleased Beach Boys albums were attempted.
And then there are contributions to other people's singles.

After Beach Boys manager Jack Reilly wanted to stay in Holland, he was replaced by James William Guercio, producer and founder of the band Chicago. Guercio had recently built Caribou Ranch, a recording studio in a converted barn on ranch property in the Rocky Mountains near Nederland, Colorado.

So, when Elton John recorded his Caribou album, in the studio, in January 1974, Carl Wilson and Bruce Johnston were asked to contribute backing vocals to 'Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me'. The song is released as the first single of the album, on June 10, 1974 in the US and reached # 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Obviously, when The Beach Boys, in the Fall of 1974 attempt to record a new studio album, Caribou Ranch is a natural choice.

According to Mike, some 40 songs were recorded: “Brian is very involved with the album. We did two tracks of his before we left to go on tour and he did three tracks while we were away. I’ve written about ten songs, Carl about five, and Al’s done a couple.

I have this one song ‘Our Life, Our Love and Our Land’, it’s kind of an ethnic thing and has the feeling of ‘Trader’ from Holland. Al has this incredible thing about a landslide… There’s a Carl song, ‘Don’t Let Me Go’, which I wrote lyrics to… There’s a Brian song that is reminiscent of ’Surfer Girl’, called ‘Good Timing’. He also wrote another tune, which is very up and bouncy. The album’s a combination of Sunflower and Holland.”

But, the recordings were continued in the brand new Brothers Studio in Santa Monica. Engineers Steve Moffitt and Gordon Rudd have equipped it with the newest 24- and 16-tracks recording equipment. "When we got back [from Holland]", Steve Moffitt explained, "the equipment went into storage for about a year before Carl and Dennis asked me to help put Brother together. Since then it’s been a twenty-hour-a-day job for me.”

Dennis produces an early version of his 'River Song' with the band and Brian still has the wildest ideas. Mike recalls a proposition to record an album full of “helpful hints”. How to get dressed quicker: practise you can get your arm faster in and out of your sleeve. With a lot of practise you can gain valuable seconds when you're late for work… And how to avoid falling objects… "The whole thing was typed out one night. He stayed up all night, that’s the kind of guy he is – completely maniacal, humorous, just deadpan… How you put it into an album, I’ll never know.”

As time went by it leaked out that the sessions produced mostly incomplete tracks.

To quote by Andrew G. Doe, author of "The Complete Guide To The Music Of The Beach Boys":

"'Good Timin'' surfaced on L.A. (Light Album) in a revised form but based on the 1974 tape while 'Ding Dang' (also referred to as 'Rolling Up To Heaven') was released on The Beach Boys Love You, albeit in a completely re-recorded version.

A completely new (2001) recording of 'California Feelin'' appeared on the 2002 compilation The Beach Boys Classics Selected By Brian Wilson. The 1978 Carl Wilson-sung version was released on the Made In California boxset.

The legendary 'Battle Hymn Of The Republic' was included on an initial lineup of Endless Harmony - that is, until the compilers actually heard it, whereupon it was swiftly dropped. The charitable opinion is that Brian was having one of his musical jokes and making lead vocalist Mike look a complete idiot in the process: it is truly, truly awful."

After the sessions Ricky Fataar leaves the band, joining Joe Walsh's Barnstorm.

During the Caribou sessions, the band Chicago was recording the album Chicago VII in one of the other studios. It was a dream come true for Peter Cetera: "There's two people that I always wanted to be, and that was a Beatle or a Beach Boy. I got to meet the Beach Boys at various times and got to be good friends with Carl Wilson."

So Peter asked Alan, Carl & Dennis to contribute backing vocals to the bridge and chorus of one his songs: 'Wishing You Were Here'.
"'They said, 'Yeah, we'd love to,'' he recalls. "So, I got to do the background harmonies with Carl and Dennis (Wilson) and Alan Jardine. For a night, I was a Beach Boy."

The song is released as a single and becomes #11 on the Billboard hit list.

The members of the two bands seem to like each other, so James Guercio suggests a national tour.
From May to June 1975, the Chicago-Beach Boys tour filled stadiums from coast to coast. During 12-city SRO series of shows - the 'Beachago' tour, each band did a set before combining in a joint finale, where Chicago performs a few of their song ('Wishing You Were Here' and 'Saturday In The Park' with Beach Boys on backing vocals, while the Beach Boys perform four songs with the Chicago horn section ('God Only Knows', 'Darlin', 'California Girls' and 'Fun, Fun, Fun'.

The last two songs are a combined effort: 'Feelin' Stronger Every Day', is performed as a duet with lead vocals by Mike Love and James Pankow and 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' is sung by Mike Love. Occasionally Bobby Lamm sang 'Surf's Up'.

Several shows are recorded for a possible live album, that, regretfully, never was released. Perhaps it was felt that two live albums back to back were too much of a good thing.


Nice to see me quoted.
3  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: So in the fall of 1980 Bob Dylan was rehearsing for his next tour... on: December 28, 2017, 11:39:27 PM
Here's a quote from Fred Tackett, Dylan's guitar player in those days:
"He had this really cool thing. When we were working on Saved, we just worked on those tunes. He was writing them and we were learning them before we recorded them. But later on, when we started playing his old songs again, he’d give me a tape of someone else’s song. One time it was Bob Seger’s Night Moves. Another time it was Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline. We even did a version of the Muppets song, Rainbow Connection. He’d say, teach the band this song, so I’d write the chord sheets, the guys would come in and I’d teach them Night Moves, Sweet Caroline, and so on, and he would sing it, then he’d send the recording to Bob Sager or Neil Diamond. [laughter]

He never said anything about it, but I always thought he didn’t want us to have these set-in-stone arrangements down. He wanted us to rehearse as a band but without us butchering his tunes over and over again, banging them into the ground. So he gave us these other songs to play. Then we’d go out on stage and play his songs. We’d rehearse them a bit, but not enough to be set in stone or to get our parts down. And I thought that it worked great. It was a great tactic, and I’ve never run across anyone else doing that. It’s a great way to rehearse a band, where you’ve got everyone together playing, without wearing the songs out."

You also got to consider that Dylan was then involved with one (or more) of his backing singers, a girl called Carole Dennis. Which might explain the 'Sweet Caroline' thing.
Never heard about him doing a recent Beach Boys song.

He once tried  to do 'God Only Knows' onde, though the band had never rehearsed it and he forgot some of the lyrics.
Funny man, our Bob.

Here's the new arrangement  for 'Thunder on the Mountain', Dylan uses during his US Fall tour: https://youtu.be/CZN3SEgPtg8

Sounds familiar to Beach Boys fans, doesn't it.

(Whistles 'Shut Down, Part II' while leaving.)

Over the years there has been some doubth that Paul actuallymunched celery on 'Vega-Tables'. Here's the man himself comfirming it.

Paul: “Yeah, that is true, yeah! I mean it was wild and wacky days, you know, and I just went round to the studio because they invited me. I just thought it would be fun to sit there and watch them record, ’cause I’m a big fan. And so I was there, and then it was, I think, Brian who came over and said, ‘Oh Paul, got a favour to ask: would you mind recording something?’ I thought, ‘Oh, no! But great, I could do that’. Oh God, I’m gonna be singing on a Beach Boys record or something, you know! I got a bit kind of intimidated and thought, ‘Okay, here goes nothing’. And they said, ‘Well, what we want you to do is go in there and just munch!’ …Well, I can do that! So, if you hear somebody munching celery, that’s me!”

No love for Dylan's Blonde On Blonde around here?

Back on track: Ryan Adams has a whole bunch of unreleased albums, with and without Whiskeytown.
I hope he'll released some of them one time officially.

You can read all about the album cover art of the original UK albums by the Beatles here.
I guess that's also where these pictures come from.

I'm amazed 'Dig It' is mentioned only once on these pages.
Perhaps most people agree it's  not even worth to be called a song: it's a jam and it shows.

That's one of the reasons I prefer Let It Be ... Naked. Any album of the Get Back sessions  that omits 'Dig It' and 'Maggie Mae' to give space to 'Don't Let Me Down' gets my vote.
