I really liked Reilly's voice on 'Life of a Tree'. But wouldn't Dennis have fit well on that song, too? Or perhaps Murray, if he would do it.

I think he did a good job on the 'Fairy Tale' as well.

As far as the Beach Boys changing styles, I disagree with that on SU, but 'So Tough' and 'Holland', yeah. But I liked it. Especially 'Holland'.

I am currently thinking of Van Dyke Parks in the American Band documentary, where he talking about Smile in front of a Tower records.

There is no point to this. Just a thought.

What were the Beach Boys doing on the day you were born? I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I've got this book put together by Keith Badman 'The Beach Boys' (A Definitive Diary of America's Greatest on Stage and In the Studio).

It shows what they were up to day to day beginning in 1961.

I was born in August of 1977. By then its not as detailed, but it does say that in August of 1977 Mike and Al asked Steve Love to return as manager. Bummer, nothing good. In fact, gag me with a spoon.

This is an excellent band of 20 something members. It includes an orchestra, choir and a rock band. They all wear white robes on stage. The band also has a therimin player!

I have heard that there is a best of Dennis Wilson out there somewhere, but I haven't found it. I would love to have that.

Speaking of box sets, I would love to have them for all the albums from Smile to Holland. Of course that probably wouldn't make much financial sense for them to do that.

I know Brian isn't going on the road again, but I would have loved to see him do 'MV&F' live!! And 'LoveYou'!!

I do think that Jack Reilly's lyrics were pretty good. Similar to Van Dyke's but more political.

I do agree about the Surfs Up album that it could've been better. Not to mention SDT by Mike. I don't mind SU being on there, but Dennis' songs would've improved it big time. In the late 60s they also left several excellent songs off albums, like 'Soulful Old Man Sunshine' and 'Celebrate the News'.  Instead they included 'Cotton Fields' and 'Bluebirds..'?

One of my favorite of BB's periods was 71-73. They almost achieved the impossibe by appealing to the 'hip' crowd. I would probably give most of the credit to Carl Wilson's producing. But I am sure that Jack Reilly had something to do with this.

Does anybody know why he was fired? I read somewhere that he ticked people off. But who and why?

My friends and I are into progressive artistic music, so several of them liked the BBs that I introduced them to of the 66-73 era. One of them, a huge Pink Floyd fan, loved MV&F the fairy tale! Several people really liked the Friends album, which suprised me cuz I thought they would think it was cheesy.

Wild Honey is also a song that the 2fer says Brian sings, but I'm pretty sure its Carl. At times it sounds like Brian though. Maybe they share the lead on that one too.
