101  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Mike Love/touring group Christmas album on: July 17, 2018, 09:01:59 PM
I was at the Beach Boys show tonight in Interlochen, MI and recorded the end of the concert and have transcribed the following quote from Mike: “I want to say a special thanks to [inaudible] and Studio 231 for helping us out. We’re doing some work on a Christmas album coming out. So thank you very much for helping us out. So part of our Christmas album will be a result of being here in Michigan.”

Some new product to look forward to down the pipeline  Cheesy I presume this would have to be Mike Love solo, right?

Happy Birthday, America is in the rotation today.

The Mike Love solo song?

I was surpised to learn this in this 1985 Record Collector article: “Less well-known is the fact that before Capitol issued the medley, the Beach Boys had themselves attempted to create their own version of the gimmick, re-recording several of their major hits in tandem. This was scrapped when neither the group nor their record company could bear to listen to the results.” What I would give to hear this recording. I don’t wanna wait until 2031!

I’m sure nobody here needs this, but the 11-track ICON compilation is a free download today on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/music/album/The_Beach_Boys_ICON?id=Bqxwit7o2gm343gw7hxwiq4mayy.

Forgive me if this was previously discussed, but are people seeing this in stores? Wasn’t in my local Target. Saw it sorted in the Beach Boys section at FYE, but it wasn’t featured in the new releases display or anything.
106  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Album Discussion Thread on: June 07, 2018, 05:44:14 PM
It’s weird to be carrying on with my day and then realizing “Oh yeah, there’s a new Beach Boys album out tomorrow.” Not really excited or actively thinking about this release, although I hope it’s successful and look forward to giving it some spins.
107  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Album Discussion Thread on: May 24, 2018, 10:51:23 AM
Email from The Beach Boys’ website says “Good Vibrations” will be the next single from this album and will be available for downloading/streaming tomorrow.
108  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys Channel on Sirius XM on: May 24, 2018, 09:37:37 AM
“Runaway Dancer” in the first half-hour  LOL

If I had to guess, the orchestral release this summer would reduce the likelihood of any archival 1968 releases before the end of the year.
110  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Carnie Wilson on Osbournes podcast on: May 08, 2018, 03:56:16 PM
Transcribing a very bizarre quote from Carnie during this interview:

Sgt. Pepper’s came out and then dad said, ‘I need to beat this record.’ Those were his words. So he wrote Pet Sounds and that’s where ‘Good Vibrations,’ ‘God Only Knows’ came in, ‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice’ and ‘Don’t Worry Baby.’ And a really cute story is my dad would come home from the recording sessions of Pet Sounds and he would say to my mom, ‘I’m scared I’m not going to do as good as Sgt. Pepper. Mar, I don’t think I can do this as good.’ And she would say ‘Don’t worry baby, everything will be alright. Don’t worry baby.’ And then he wrote ‘Don’t Worry Baby.’”

 Huh Huh Huh Inaccurate in several ways to say the least.

Isn’t that Dennis/Manson photo super fake? Looks like some real high quality reading Roll Eyes

PSA: The vinyl edition is now less than $13 on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07667WK1G/

Picked up the vinyl edition of UTL which came out a while after the CD. The sticker is different from the CD edition. I wonder if Mike got in trouble for using the Beach Boys logo?

Also noticing that the sticker now says *a* lyricist.

115  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love's Celebration band & album(s) on: April 02, 2018, 09:19:30 AM
There's some question as to whether Disco Celebration was actually released, but that's much rarer then Celebration. It's also considerably worse than any LP you've ever heard.

Ahh you're all full of bunk. Of course it was released. I've got it. Took seemingly forever to find!  It was on a small label, nobody wanted it and most of them  that didn't get recycled are sitting in a warehouse somewhere( I think in Paraguay with the Honeys Box Set )  waiting for the REAL Disco resurgence.

Not arguing it was pressed up and shrinkwrapped, but when I spoke with Ron last century he told me it never got past that stage and that all the albums were bought by a credit card company to give away as a freebie. Apparently they never did.

Fascinating twist I just learned today: Apparently Disco Celebration was licensed for distribution in Mexico: https://www.discogs.com/Celebration-Disco-Celebration/release/11800744.
116  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 2018 Record Store Day - The Beach Boys on: March 02, 2018, 09:10:56 PM
Also, 1960s Records might be the most generic label name possible.

Wow, didn’t notice that was the label name  LOL
117  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 2018 Record Store Day - The Beach Boys on: March 02, 2018, 05:51:32 AM
So this is the Beach Boys release:

2018/04/21   Beach Boys   2018RSD - In Paris With Andy Williams   Rock/Pop   5060331751274   1960'S RECORDS   7"   REP014

I would not imagine this is an authorized release by The Beach Boys. According to https://www.gs1us.org/tools/gs1-company-database-gepir, the barcode from this release is registered to a company out of London called TV Music. Would almost definitely be a Universal barcode if it was official. Happy to be proven wrong though.

A quote from Andrew Sandoval during his appearance on The Best Show (around the 1:10:00 mark): “I’ve got a friend who works for Brian Wilson and he said ‘Hey Brian. I’m going to see the Monkees tonight. My friend Andrew got me some tickets. Do you want to go?’ And he said ‘No. But could you buy me a hot dog?’”
119  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Al Jardine - 2018 Tour Thread - Postcards Storytellers Tour on: February 19, 2018, 11:12:54 AM
Based on pictures I saw on Facebook, looks like the merch stand has a new digipak version of the Postcards CD. Did anyone buy one/can comment on it? I’m assuming there’s nothing new contest-wise, unless Al prepped yet another mix of “Waves Of Love.”

The 2012 reissue came in a digipak. The recent pics could be that same version.

Ah yes, very likely. My mistake.

Forgive me if this has already been noted, but Newbury Comics has been selling signed UTL CDs for those interested: https://www.newburycomics.com/collections/autographed-cds/products/mike_love-unleash_the_love_2_cd_with_autographed_booklet?variant=47758590540
122  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Pro Shot Beach Boys Concerts on: January 21, 2018, 02:32:21 PM
Michael Lloyd posted to Facebook a nice video of “Little Saint Nick” from the Hallmark Home & Family shoot: https://www.facebook.com/michael.lloyd.756/videos/10156612065219298/

He said it was shot at the Universal Studios lot in his post I linked earlier. A correction to my post earlier—looks like it was actually shot on the 8th. Facebook is displaying Lloyd’s post as on December 9th in Eastern Standard Time though.
123  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Pro Shot Beach Boys Concerts on: January 20, 2018, 04:40:23 PM
If this counts, on 12/9/17 the boys apparently shot their segment for the Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family show (aired 12/11): https://www.facebook.com/michael.lloyd.756/posts/10156612062709298

I would hope there will be a different cover design scheme for 1968.
