On the copies I have (Amazon CD-R, Japanese CD) Al says “BP” instead of “Texaco.” Unless I’m getting all mixed up...

I really wish Bruce had kept “Bluebirds” for himself LOL

Spotted over on aljardine.com/music/…



Also, just two days ago, A Postcard from California was made available again on streaming/download services in a 13-track rendition (the 12 original tracks + “California Dreamin’‘”): http://amazon.com/dp/B07L92SGCN. Amazon says the label is Friday Music, who also put out last year’s vinyl reissue of Postcard, so I’d have to imagine it’s likely they’ll be behind the CD too.

I skimmed the tracks for this new digital version on Spotify and happened to notice “Drivin’” is the Texaco version which really just makes me laugh. I think this was previously only on the ESQ CD, right? How many mix variations need to exist for this album? LOL

I see someone started a setlist.fm page for the Iridium show a few days back and put up “Winds of Change” and “Lady Lynda” (possibly based on my comment above). If anyone wanted to update it with the full setlist, it was as follows:
1. Surfin'
2. Luau
3. Surfin' Safari
4. Surfer Girl
5. Don't Worry Baby
6. California Girls
7. Sloop John B
8. God Only Knows
9. Winds of Change [brief snippet as a shoutout to Ron Altbach]
10. Good Vibrations
11. Vegetables
12. Surf's Up
13. California Saga: California
14. A Postcard From California
15. Surfin' USA

Encore:
16. Lady Lynda [brief snippet after someone shouted it out]
17. In My Room
18. Help Me, Rhonda

This is fascinating. I had never heard of this.

I saw the show at the Iridium in NYC last night. Al played a few bars of “Winds of Change” as a hat-tip to Ron Altbach, who was in attendance. And at the end of the show, someone shouted out “Lady Liberty” and Al was like “Oh gosh, who said that” before talking about how that was written with Ron and played a couple of lines of “Lady Lynda.” Al then told a funny story about how Brian is really fond of “Lady Lynda” and always asks Al to sing it to him but whenever Al asks if Brian wants to add it to the show he says no.

Looks like Rocky’s book got a write-up in the “Palisadian Post”: https://www.palipost.com/surfs-up/. Unfortunately, I don’t know how to get past the paywall.

Can someone who works in radio contact Surf City Syndicators and tell them you’d like to re-run the show? Grin
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1981 Queen Mary “Pre-Show” on: February 07, 2019, 12:08:20 PM
Very interesting, Steve. Has “The Best Summers of Our Lives” circulated at all since then? I don’t really know anything about radio specials produced about the BBs. Were there any other notable specials produced throughout the years?
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / 1981 Queen Mary “Pre-Show” on: February 06, 2019, 09:01:06 PM
I found an old issue of Cash Box online that covered the announcement of the infamous 1981 Queen Mary simulcast concert (11th page of https://www.americanradiohistory.com/Archive-Cash-Box/80s/1981/CB-1981-07-04.pdf, labeled page 19). Near the end of the article, it says “The three-hour concert itself will actually be Part II and, of course, the climax to radio's "big event." A three-hour pre-show on the history of the Beach Boys has been produced by Mike Love’s production company, Surf City Syndicators. Nickell said that some of the stations are planning to broadcast the pre-show on Saturday night (July 4) as a primer for the live broadcast on Sunday; others will air the pre-show immediately preceding the concert.” I hadn’t heard of this “pre-show” before. Did anyone catch it at the time? Is it online anywhere? A three-hour audio documentary about the BBs produced by Mike at one of the band’s lower points sounds fascinating.

The Al Jardine YouTube page posted a video about an hour or so ago of him and Matt performing “Luau” but it looks like they took it down. It was very amusing! Anyone else catch it?

I would appreciate being invited too if anyone could be so kind.

Regarding BRI owning the post-Capitol stuff, it's worth noting that while Capitol owns all of the masters and session tapes for most of the 60s recordings (made while under contract to Capitol), BRI has still had veto/signoff power on the release of Capitol-era outtakes.

This is why we've seen the released recordings milked to death by Capitol over the years, whereas they were obviously not able to just unilaterally release outtakes, even concerning tapes they own, of something like "Smile."

BRI has been involved in and signed off on these "Copyright Extension" sets. I don't know who has been more of the prime mover/motivator in getting these released done, but it's certainly not a case of Capitol just doing these releases on their own.

Of course, theoretically post-Capitol material should have either the same or less snags as BRI owns most of the material. I'm not sure if Capitol/UMe still has "first rights of refusal" on all Brother-era material still. Either way, I would imagine future "Copyright Extension" releases of BRI-owned material would either just be direct from BRI, or still through Capitol/UMe (certainly in the case of any possible future physical releases).

Keep in mind, though, that the band members (most of them anyway) become more and more "difficult" when it comes to post-1969 material. This was/is likely one of the reasons back in the early 2000s we never got that "Brother Rarities" set and instead got "Hawthorne, CA", which contained mostly 60s stuff with just a morsel of early 70s material.

The less Brian-centric that material becomes, and the more it involves still-living members, the more possibilities there are for vetoing or having issues. I think these "CE" releases are pretty streamlined at this stage, so I anticipate and hope they will continue. But I'm curious what might be vetoed, especially when we get to the later 70s. Will Mike want the 1977 recording of "Alone on Christmas Day" out there? Does Al want the early version of "Santa Ana Winds" or "Looking Down the Coast" out there? I dunno.

Hopefully, much like "Made in California", all the principals involved will continue to be generally supportive of archival releases, and we might just see specific individual cases where things are nixed/vetoed, etc.

Great points/info.

I’d like to see a legit release of the BB’s set from the Big Sur Folk Festival.

Ode Records may still own the rights to these recordings, which would likely complicate things. “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” appeared on Ode’s Celebration: The Big Sur Folk Festival 1970 LP (and was released as a single).
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1969-70 Copyright Extension Release Prediction Thread on: December 25, 2018, 07:20:26 AM
We’re entering the time period The Beach Boys started owning their own recordings (as opposed to Capitol). I wonder if this will affect the copyright extension releases in any way?

I have been watching that clip over and over. So great!

Also they're not going to appear on 7Digital anytime soon. They haven't updated the albums available since last month, and when I contacted them about this they said that they have no plans to add anything more for the foreseeable future.

7Digital isn’t selling new music anymore? Sad
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1968 Copyright Extension prediction thread on: December 07, 2018, 03:55:01 PM
Still waiting for these to drop on us.7digital.com. They usually have good prices for high-rez versions of these sets. You just have to wait a day or two...

Interesting design choice for the 20/20 cover… they moved the bottom half of the photo over to fit Al and Dennis in the frame, but that makes Mike and Carl’s arms look weird.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2018 Tour Thread on: December 05, 2018, 10:01:34 AM
At a soundcheck a couple weeks ago, they were trying out a medley of “We Three Kings” and “Winter Symphony.” For “Winter Symphony,” Brian was on lead throughout. I thought the transition between songs worked very well. Here’s some fuzzy audio of that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgSUpsCgsFw

https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/brian-wilson/2018/orpheum-theatre-minneapolis-mn-739722a9.html

Is this setlist accurate? If so, disappointed to see none of the 1977 Christmas material made it into the show. I saw them rehearse two of the ’77 songs at a soundcheck last week. Hopefully they work their way into the show by the end of the tour.

Which ones? "Winter Symphony" and "Christmas Time Is Here Again"?

Yep.

This was posted at PSF by ttboy:

I saw a photo of the setlist from a friend of mine and it was definitely a few songs longer and included Christmas-y and Winter Symphony!


Phew!

So, how is the Christmas show? Anyone catch the one last night?

Link doesn’t seem to work anymore.
