@mustomax--- mostly, I agree with your sentiments...but cannot extend "the BB" to include Stamos nor Ambha L. IMO.

Amy...ypu are right : have met him now around 8 times-- and the majority of those times , he exudes love and warmth. A very special person

I think this is the one they were filming for on UK tour last year. The intention of Brent Wilson, if fulfilled , is to give us the sense of being in Brian's company ---  which sounds to me , at least, a parallel approach to Brian's autobiography. Cannot wait !!!

Must admit, I bought the downloads of the half dozen ' regular' songs . Whilst the family sing okay, I prefer to hear the artiste themselves, not guests.  I find the trad songs are  well produced  but not distinctive arrangements.  My one and only quibble with the ones I bought , is that someone is screeching off-key on " Must be Christmas" and spoilt what could have been a great track.

Rob B sounds very good in this clip

" All Love "......is what ? The family?

Dont know if it helps, but Carl played tbe Rickenbacker as far as I can recollect on tv in UK in late Niv/ early December 64. I saw it at the time....and am fairly sure mention was made in music press of it being like the one in Hard Days Night

Usually, judging , say, a Youtube video or a mobile phone capture is unkind to the performer. But this is a well shot, close up clear film and records a song which does not merit the cost of filming. I have never seen ML struggle so. And , blind to the quality level drop it gives the act, when he is licensed to do HUNDREDS of well written tunes on which he used to excel.

I really like that song though....some word changes would make it a fine release, commercial sound to it.

In Edinburgh on Sunday, Brian was fully engaged and sang well. More importantly, he appeared happy and more mobile than recent times, although it was sensible to let him open...and remain, seated . He does get breathless on wordy or long lines of lyrics but that happens to many !
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / The Beach Boys Media / Re: 'I Sleep Alone' Recordings on: August 20, 2018, 11:03:16 AM
The demo was for Sarah Brightman I believe. She had an affair ( allegedly) with Andrew Lloyd Webber whom she later married. Anyway....if you listen to the lyrics, it is fairly clear she could not have sung those words ......... " when your man's not your own"
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2018 Tour Thread on: August 09, 2018, 08:28:56 AM
While my personal preference is and would be for Brian to spend weeks in a studio, just playing piano and singing lead vocals on anything and evrrything he likes, of course I must accept HIS preference to tour

Seated venue makes sense and best in Scotlands unpredictable weather

To Kid Presentable......Bruce did not co write Cibra. The song was written by Carol Connor

I agree, Billy, about Pet S.  , it is now overdone.

Thanks to BeachBoysCovers for that review. Since I could not attend, it helps to be a " virtual"  member of the au

Both are there.
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: BB in UK --- No reviews !?! on: June 19, 2018, 11:29:23 AM
Thanks Shady. Glad you enjoyed it

. To guitarfool.....well, again, more my way of registering disappointment., not really a question.  I do actually admire immensely both Brians band and the current BB. As they made me a fan of harmony vocals, at least both  bands are still doing this very well and the original guys benefit from the talents of Darian , Scott T et al in keeping the sound alive.
20  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: BB in UK --- No reviews !?! on: June 19, 2018, 08:03:20 AM
Yeah, I cant disagree..........but remain, Yours Sincerely, Disappointed.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / BB in UK --- No reviews !?! on: June 19, 2018, 06:26:23 AM
Been searching, cant find any reviews from Hampton Court. Did find GV on youtube, with Christian sounding ok. Are the guys losing traditional fans....and will their Royal Phil fans buy tickets to make up the difference ? Enthusiasm, anyone ??
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Album Discussion Thread on: June 12, 2018, 10:00:49 AM
Well, this is a curious album and no mistake. Where it excels -- Sloop John B, Disney Girls, You Still Believe in Me...........there , it justifies its existence.

Some of the arrangements are both too quiet and lacking much creativity.

Plain bad....is the unforgiveable burying of BWs brilliant vocal tags...especially the ending of God Only Knows.

If only, if only.........the excellence of Sloop etc had been shown throughout, the album could have been a GREAT addition to the catalogue.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Album Discussion Thread on: June 06, 2018, 02:12:53 AM
Heard F, F, F this morning on radio. Glad the band are being heard and at least this album might get new buyers and kead to ither new or archive releases. BUT.........the orch adds nothing that my ears  tell me " must buy". Just the opposite !
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Album Discussion Thread on: May 25, 2018, 10:42:46 AM
Okay, okay, so it is a big and well respected orchestra ; but it is ultimately no more than a " tribute band" .

I trust Howie's judgement. Hopefully, his powers of persuasion can extract these gems. from the vaults onto sale
