Some cool news from Facebook: Rob Bonfiglio will be joining up with Brian’s band for the tour. https://www.facebook.com/rob.bonfiglio/posts/10156754515844188?__tn__=H-R
102  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / New “Live Aid” Digital Release on: October 05, 2018, 07:58:45 PM
The Band Aid Trust put out a digital-only (?) compilation last month that includes The Beach Boys’ July 13, 1985 Live Aid performances of “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Good Vibrations” and “Surfin’ USA.” I don’t think these have been made available on an album before, right?

Presume it was recorded in 2016 looking at the link.

I would guess they uploaded it to an old existing folder without really thinking (although I have no way to know).

As I mentioned in another thread, Scott Totten was said to produce the sessions that took place in Traverse City, MI (via https://www.instagram.com/p/BlYwXzsHXu4/). Not sure if that means Scott is helming the entire project or not. Could very well be another Lloyd affair, especially considering Lloyd produced Mike’s new single, which apparently grew out of these Christmas sessions.

Good to see he still has a deal with BMG to release more music.
106  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Everyone back together for a Beach Boys Q&A for Sirius XM? on: August 15, 2018, 10:46:51 AM
I listened to this over the weekend. Does anybody remember what the first of the RPO tracks they played was? Sounded like a different mix. Can anyone confirm?
107  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Everyone back together for a Beach Boys Q&A for Sirius XM? on: July 31, 2018, 03:02:55 AM
Grating to see this used as an opportunity to hawk the shirts. Most people are only going to hear them anyways, so why even bother wearing the merch to this?

That said, amazing to see them all together.

From 231 Recordings’ Instagram page (https://www.instagram.com/p/BlYwXzsHXu4/):



First thing that jumps out at me: Scott is mentioned as the producer!

In case anyone wanted to hear it from the horse’s mouth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DTayXDQ7B8 (Listening back, the “inaudible” name is clearly Andy.)

When Mike mentions Studio 231, I think he has to be referring to 231 Recordings. That’s the only studio in the area with “231” in the name.

How was the show? I'm going to catch it later this week

The show was great. I had only seen them perform once before a few years back but Mike seemed much more confident vocally than the previous show I saw/the 4th of July shows I’ve seen on TV. I swear he sounded 20 years younger. Vintage ’80s/’90s nasal glory in places. And all the band member features were great for the most part. Great energy too.
112  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?
113  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys Channel on Sirius XM on: July 05, 2018, 06:39:10 AM
Happy Birthday, America is in the rotation today.

The Mike Love solo song?
114  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys Medley 1981 single on: July 02, 2018, 09:50:20 AM
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.
117  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.
118  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.
119  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.
121  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.
