I love Misirlou, but it was a cover song, so I don't give them too much credit for it. Lonely Sea is one of the prettiest songs Brian wrote.

This is the first non best of album I bought. I think that In the Back of My Mind is excellent!! I wonder if Capitol ever complained that there were no songs about surfing, cars or the beach on this one like they did Pet Sounds.

I really love the Dennis songs minus AIWtD. I can't stand Al's CF. Also, too many cover songs on it. Although, I will forgive them for ICHM
2930  Smiley Smile Stuff / 1960's Beach Boys Albums / Re: Smiley Smile on: October 25, 2006, 10:29:09 PM
The first time I listened to it I was quite upset after hearing the real Smile songs in documentaries. However, its really grown on me. Tripped out beauty, a step away from Friends.
2931  Smiley Smile Stuff / 1960's Beach Boys Albums / Re: Wild Honey on: October 25, 2006, 10:26:19 PM
I don't think I've heard this from anyone else, but in my opinion, 'Wild Honey' the song almost seems like a great follow up to 'Good Vibrations'. They both have a therimin thing goin on. Although they are in different styles that is the first thing I thought  when I heard WH the first time.
2932  Smiley Smile Stuff / 1960's Beach Boys Albums / Re: Pet Sounds on: October 25, 2006, 10:22:35 PM
Even though I gave this album a 5, I've listened to it so much that I'm kind of tired of it now. Sometimes I will play the backing tracks and sing them while I'm driving.
2933  Smiley Smile Stuff / 1960's Beach Boys Albums / Re: All Summer Long on: October 25, 2006, 10:19:08 PM
I believe this is the first album they made after firing Murray. A huge step foward.
2934  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys on your birthday on: October 25, 2006, 10:12:48 PM
My birthday also before Badman. Prabably before the BBs. Probably before you could find a.....

"grand coolie workin on the railroad"

Maybe when Murray cut 'Two Step Side Step'? Smiley
2935  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys on your birthday on: October 25, 2006, 10:05:34 PM
Lemme see, I was born May 16th 1984, so without looking into Badman's book (or another one for that matter) I'd guess they were playing their oldies to a packed arena or hall or something.

The only thing mentioned of '84 is the burial of Dennis.
2936  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys on your birthday on: October 25, 2006, 10:02:41 PM
My birthday too ! But '55, not '89. Wink

I bet Brian, Dennis and Carl were harmonising in their room! Or Murray was beating them up.
2937  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian on Still Cruisin' album on: October 25, 2006, 10:00:58 PM
I don't really care. 'BW solo' is a whole lot better in my opinion. Mainly because they couldn't make a full album of new stuff, for whatever reason.  'Kokamo' is pretty good, 'Make it Good' is solid. 'Japan' is ok. I can't stand 'Still Cruisin' and 'Island Girl'.
2938  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Jack Reilly on: October 25, 2006, 09:54:57 PM
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'.
2939  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Tower Records to close on: October 24, 2006, 09:31:26 PM
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.
2941  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / The Polyphonic Spree on: October 24, 2006, 09:14:38 PM
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!

2942  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What releases would you like to see in the future? on: October 24, 2006, 09:00:55 PM
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'!!
2943  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Jack Reilly on: October 24, 2006, 08:51:09 PM
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..'?
2944  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Jack Reilly on: October 23, 2006, 11:02:46 PM
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?
2945  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: There songs are everywhere on: October 23, 2006, 10:54:12 PM
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.
2946  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Vocals on on: October 23, 2006, 10:41:33 PM
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.
