" 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 !

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"

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
dience
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: BB in UK --- No reviews !?! on: June 20, 2018, 01:33:40 AM
Both are there.
13  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.
14  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.
15  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 ??
16  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.
17  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 !
18  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
20  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys in Glastonbury comeback talks after not so Good Vibrations since 2012 on: May 15, 2018, 02:02:25 PM
I would like them to take a full CD shot in the studio....which might or might not be the last CD of new stuff.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Album Discussion Thread on: May 10, 2018, 11:49:15 PM
Maybe a hologram costs less than paying your former colleagues
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Album Discussion Thread on: May 10, 2018, 10:33:20 AM
How come David Marks doesnt get to give a quote ?
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2018 Tour Thread on: May 02, 2018, 09:50:31 AM
Perhaps the plan  all along was for surgery after May gigs .....and recovery through June , as no gigs were showing then ?  Possibly BW's back caused more urgent surgery and intervention. IMO
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian featured on forthcoming Janelle Monae record? on: April 26, 2018, 09:55:21 AM
Sounds like more of the BW Band are on there, singing. Brian not too obvious. Like it though !

Re Steohen Despers comments on Papa Doo Run Run 's California Project -- that is where Jeff Foskett did a cracking version of Warmth of the Sun
