Wow.  Tough Choice. 

I'm going with Back in the USSR


Interesting how 2 out of the last 3 contenders feature Paul on drums!

Narrowed it down to the "40 Greatest Shits" - needs to be a double CD.  I'm not a big fan of the Jack Reilly and Blondie/Ricky eras.

Right in the pocket of spring '65--right before the "fat" bass came into play. Ah, if we could only live in that time frame, before so much got so f'ed up--and I'm not just talking about Brian or the BBs, either. But it looks like Brian is gonna take us back there--hurray!

If he keeps this up (and why not??) they should title the LP "Brian Wilson Today."

Nicely stated.  That is such a great timeframe, isn't it?  I love the Today! and Summer Days era.

Brian has been quoted as saying the sessions for California Girls and Let Him Run Wild were very "Up" - most likely meaning he was hitting his stride with the Wrecking Crew, having fun, and getting into the groove with his new vision of writing the songs at home and having the Boys spreading the gospel on the road.

It also reminds me of an Elvis Costello quote from Endless Harmony whereby he describes the Pet Sounds era (I believe it applies to this timeframe as well...

(quoting loosely)

"After things were young and silly, and before things got weird..."

Southern California is one of Brian's finest solo moments, top 3 in my opinion.  The fact that it was left off this collection is a huge error on the part of those who compiled the album.

I hate to say it, but distilling the worst down to 12 tracks is very difficult.  I love the Beach Boys, but there are so many clunkers to choose from.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys recognition in public in 2017 on: September 21, 2017, 06:46:13 AM
I love all of these stories, Beach Boys, and others. 

My wife and I ran into various members of Aerosmith in April 1997 at Disneyworld.  We saw Joe Perry and his wife eating dinner at Cinderella Castle, Brad Whitford walking around, and Steven Tyler at the Japan Exhibit in Epcot. 

Steven had one of the Disney hospitality people walking with him.  My wife slowly walked over to him, said hello, and clicked a close-up picture of him.  Thankfully, he wasn't upset.  When the picture came out he looked like a deer in headlights, and the Disney person behind him looked shocked.  I wish I could find that picture!

I'm sorry, Martha.  It is time for you to cross the Rainbow Bridge.

It is wonderful to hear such energy and excitement in Brian's voice and in the production.  Great song, love the guitar parts.  Perhaps this is a hint at what the fabled "Rock and Roll Album" might sound like.

Apparently, Mark McGrath's job these days is to yell "YEAH!" and point to Mike Love while smirking.
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Did Al Jardine die in 1965 only to be replaced by a lookalike ? on: September 05, 2017, 11:57:02 AM
Al Jardine was conceived around early September which is when the age count is started from in some cultures. This makes him a Sagittarius. Thus we should look for clues in the Sagittarius album, especially My World Fell Down.

Actually, Al's birthday of September 3, 1942 means that he was most likely conceived in the range of December 5 - December 9, 1941.

The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was December 7, 1941 which could have been Al's date of conception.

I would search for clues in Hawaii.

We could start a whole thread of songs that Brian introduces with a salty tongue.

"Here's a song I wrote in 1966 called 'God, who the f*!k Knows?' "

19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Rolling Stone: The Salvation of Brian Wilson on: August 30, 2017, 09:25:57 AM
I would love to read transcripts from Jason Fine's time spent with Brian.  He seems to be the only journalist with that kind of access who makes Brian feel comfortable.  I would definitely buy a book consisting solely of his conversations with Brian.

I didn't realize Brian cursed so much!

Brian seems to let some four letter words slip when he's in high spirits.  

The best BW performance I saw was last September in Bethesda, MD, and he introed GV by shouting "Who wants some godddamn shitty vibrations!!!!"

Are you serious?  That is hilarious!

The whole replacement conspiracy was covered up by another popular surfing group at the time.

ALAN JARDINE

is an anagram for

JAN DEAN LIAR


In fact, Dean Torrence designed the album cover art for 15 Big Ones, with "Al" looking away.

23  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Favorite Tracks on each Beatles Album on: August 28, 2017, 12:48:49 PM
I am guessing most fans here did NOT grow up with the US albums. Rightly or not, those are still the albums I hear in my head when I think of Beatles songs.

Me too.  When I first heard the CD releases, I was shocked NOT to hear all of the reverb on I Feel Fine and She's a Woman, as well as the different intro to Money and the lack of additional harmonica on Thank You Girl.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Rolling Stone: The Salvation of Brian Wilson on: August 28, 2017, 10:56:19 AM
Jason Fine must have so many cool stories in his notepad that never made it to print.  It must be awesome to just hang out with Brian and have conversations with him like this. 
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Alternate Reality: Al, Mike, and Brian as The Beach Boys on: August 28, 2017, 09:48:02 AM
I think any subsequent projects without Dennis or Carl would have lived or died by Brian's level of involvement. Simple as that.

Much like today.
