Murry's a painter?

He painted with teardrops of blue, as I hear…

HeyJude, you may be relieved to see the Beach Boys logo didn’t make it to the final release. (I guess just the advertising leading up to it?)

Everyone get your questions ready…

5  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Nick Laird-Clowes discusses working with Brian in 2015 interview on: March 01, 2022, 07:15:48 PM
https://www.rhino.com/article/interview-nick-laird-clowes-of-the-dream-academy

I happened into this interview with Nick Laird-Clowes from 2015 that I can’t remember getting discussed here before (apologies if a reshare). If you scroll to towards the end of the interview, Nick is asked about working with Brian on “Walkin’ the Line” and he has a bit to say about how that collaboration came about and his frustrating experience dealing with Landy. Not a lot of it is terribly surprising if you’ve read other accounts of what it was like working with Brian at the time, but some of it is unique and very entertaining, such as Nick’s story of Brian singing “Roll Out the Barrel” for the first 40 minutes of their session LOL

Where's this supposed new version then?

The version featuring Mike and Bruce is out digitally this Friday.

Makes me wonder exactly what parts of this song that Mike or Brian remotely had a hand in writing?

I have to imagine Brian and Mike are getting credit solely because the song samples “I Get Around.” Probably just sloppy reporting from tasteofcountry.com.

Only 4 days away from getting to hear “Beach Boys” (feat. Mike Love & Bruce Johnston of The Beach Boys) Smokin

Somewhat interesting to see from poking around on Google that the company who controls the soundtrack masters (BW Soundtrack LLC) was registered as a company in Texas on 10/6/2016. The CEO of BW Soundtrack LLC is Long Promised Road producer (and oil industry exec) Tim Headington.

The new reissue is now available on download/streaming services. The “West Coast” version of “Waves of Love” sounds very similar to one of the previously released mixes, perhaps with some new vocals? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXp2MC8IZ9I

I am awestruck. What a treat we get to hear these (and in such good quality)!
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road (2019 Brent Wilson Documentary) on: June 22, 2021, 07:44:56 AM
Do we have confirmation on what new songs are in the movie after it has been screened?

Right Where I Belong
Long Promised Road - Blondie Lead

There was talk of Honeycomb, is that confirmed?

They show a tracking session for “Honeycomb” in the movie. The only other new studio song I can remember is an “It’s OK” that’s pretty faithful to the original arrangement. The movie also uses some songs from the vault in at various points—I recall hearing “Must Be A Miracle” and “Awake.”

If anyone remembers that news story from a couple years back about Brian going back to Hawthorne High and getting his grade in music changed from an “F” to an “A,” that was apparently shot (but not used) for this documentary. At the Q & A following the Tribeca screening, Brent Wilson described it as a “painful thing to cut.” Hope some of this bonus footage finds a way out some day Shocked

Also it has gone pretty viral on twitter... in a negative way

Yeah, Mike was a trending topic for a period of time last night as the photo was making the rounds. Originally from https://twitter.com/aldotcom/status/1404528358118023175, I believe.

Looks like LBWL has been pulled from download/streaming services. Wonder if 43 North Broadway got in trouble? Embarrassed
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What is this and why did Capitol Records put it out? on: June 08, 2021, 06:43:08 PM
I tried to do some brief scouring but this was the closest thing I could find:

https://www.facebook.com/CavalryMusic/


Great find! Their most recent post is this ad for Apple TV+ which features the remix: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1fI8BL7BnE

So mystery solved! A commission for an ad. Still weird Capitol put it out as a single…

Wouldn't It Be Nice (Cavalry Remix):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FupdTRRXQeI

Originally thought this was an unauthorized fan remix, but the YouTube description indicates this was put out by Capitol Records. What is this mess? Huh

Corrections welcome. Track lengths are sourced from the Beach Boys web store.

For any of the creatively-minded members of Smiley Smile: Al is launching a music video contest for “Waves of Love 2.0.”

According to the BMI database, he is also known as Billy Harve House. From some googling, there appears to be a 69-year-old of the same name in California.

Might be worth bringing up that 43 North Broadway’s legal standing regarding whether they actually the rights to the material they put out occasionally gets called into question… here’s a Washington Post article detailing lawsuits they’re facing over the rights to the Black Jazz record label. I also noticed recently that 43 North Broadway put out a version of the Buckinghams’ Kind Of A Drag album on streaming services even though Columbia Records also has a version on streaming services (after Columbia acquired the rights to Kind Of A Drag from the independent label USA Records back in the ’60s). Hence my skepticism about any involvement with the Mike Love camp on this LBWL reissue…
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Looking Back With Love - Official Release on: March 05, 2021, 12:14:57 PM
The company behind this release—43 North Broadway—is one of the intellectual property vultures that has gained notoriety in the last few years from buying up defunct independent labels and then putting out these slipshod digital releases. They must have acquired Boardwalk’s assets at some point. Probably can safely assume that Mike/the BBs’ camp/Iconic had nothing to do with the release. Haven’t fully taken the time to examine this new digital version of LBWL but I think I’ve already noticed the left and right channels have been swapped from the original release.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: New Mike Love single on: February 19, 2021, 09:36:23 PM
Lets look into this guy Daniel Charles Parker

Here is his discogs page - https://www.discogs.com/artist/6746654-Daniel-Charles-Parker

Any connection with that name as to why it might be a pseudonym?

I found this - http://members.calbar.ca.gov/fal/Licensee/Detail/118281

I guess that could be him. Started practicing in 1985 in LA. I sent him an email  Grin



Sorry to revive an old thread, but went down a rabbit hole of googling and found out that Dan Parker is one of Mike’s former managers. Here’s his resume—among his achievements, he proudly states “Wrote title song and coordinated marketing and PR for Mr. Love’s solo album on Casablanca Records.” So, it sounds like Mr. Parker’s lyrical contribution to “LBWL” is legitimate.

Bonus: Here’s a random news article that features a video interview with Mr. Parker. Mentions how he and Mike met…

A statement from Mike on Twitter:



Edit: Mike has a more substantial post on Facebook:
