1  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: When I Grow Up / She Knows Me Too Well stereo mix question on: April 20, 2016, 05:28:17 PM
Haven't heard it a few years, but I believe the '08 mix of She Knows Me has a single tracked lead vocal, while the '12 mix has some sort of ADT effect applied....right?

Aha, that's it! I can't believe I didn't notice that. I was worried more about instrument placement in the stereo field. Obviously these differences can be a lot more subtle.

Here's another one I can't figure out... all of the stereo appearances of "Dance, Dance, Dance" are labelled as being from 2003, when the Sounds of Summer compilation was released. But in fact the Sounds of Summer version sounds like a completely different mix than the one that has appeared since (on the singles box, 50 Big Ones, Made in CA, 2012 reissues, and last year's stereo reissue). So was it actually remixed sometime after 2003 and that's the version that has been appearing? The singles box is the oldest release I know of with this "not really 2003" mix.

Thanks for all the help with my inane queries!
2  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / When I Grow Up / She Knows Me Too Well stereo mix question on: April 19, 2016, 05:08:31 PM
This is admittedly a very minor thing, but this sort of inconsistency bugs me, so...

The stereo mixes of When I Grow Up to Be a Man and She Knows Me Too Well first appeared in the 2008 singles box set, correct? But every time they have appeared since (50 Big Ones, Made in CA, 2012 remasters) it says they are 2012 mixes. But they all sound the same as the 2008 mixes to me. Were these mixes actually redone in 2012, or are they the 2008 mixes mis-dated?

Thanks for indulging my OCD...

I love listening to Beach Boys isolated vocal and instrumental tracks, it really makes you appreciate the complexity of the recordings. I have the Stack-O-Tracks CD, the Pet Sounds Box Set, and the Good Vibrations Box Set. Do any other CDs have vocal or instrumental tracks? And have any full multitracks ever appeared? I've seen Beatles multitracks floating around but nothing for the BBs.

The biggest "classic" that I don't enjoy is "Do You Wanna Dance". Something about the production of that one just turns me off. I was hoping the stereo remix would be a revelation, but... nope, still don't like it.

This is a fantastic list, thanks so much! Several of the stereo remixes have been done more than once. In those cases, I've tried to figure out when each remix was done and where they can be found. Not counting the upcoming 2012 reissues, this is what I came up with:


Little Saint Nick (single version)
  • 1992 remix on Legends of Christmas Past
  • 1998 remix on Ultimate Christmas
  • 2008 remix on US Singles Collection

The Lord's Prayer
  • 1991 remix on Beach Boys' Christmas Album (1991 CD)
  • 2001 remix on Hawthorne, CA and US Singles Collection
(I can't hear any differences between these two. Is it possible they're both the same 1991 mix?)

Dance, Dance, Dance
  • 2001 remix on Hawthorne, CA
  • 2003 remix on Sounds of Summer
  • 2008 remix on US Singles Collection

Kiss Me, Baby
  • 1998 remix by Andrew Sandoval on Endless Harmony (1998 CD)
  • 2000 remix by Mark Linett on Endless Harmony (2000 CD) and all releases since

California Girls
  • 1998 remix by Andrew Sandoval on Endless Harmony (1998 CD)
  • 2000 remix by Mark Linett on Endless Harmony (2000 CD)
  • 2002 remix (correcting out-of-sync vocals) on Sounds of Summer and all releases since

Wouldn't It Be Nice
  • 1996 remix on Pet Sounds Sessions and the 1999 mono/stereo Pet Sounds reissue
  • 2001 remix (with Mike Love's vocal restored) on the 2001 mono/stereo Pet Sounds and all releases since

You Still Believe in Me
  • 1996 remix on Pet Sounds Sessions, and the 1999, 2001 and 2006 Pet Sounds mono/stereo reissues
  • 2012 remix (with double-tracked lead vocal) on 2012 Pet Sounds MFSL SACD

Caroline, No
  • 1996 album version remix on Pet Sounds Sessions and all releases since
  • Single edit remix (likely edited from the 1996 mix) on Classics Selected by Brian Wilson

Heroes and Villains
  • 2001 remix on Hawthorne, CA
  • Note: The Sounds of Summer booklet claims to use a 2002 remix, but it sounds the same as the Hawthorne, CA remix to my ears


Also, you should add to your list the new remixes of "Wendy" on The Warmth of the Sun and "Time to Get Alone" on Summer Love Songs.

Great info from everyone. This place rocks!
7  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / "The Rocking Surfer" question on: May 20, 2007, 12:09:17 AM
The writing credit for "The Rocking Surfer" on the Surfer Girl album is "Traditional; Arranged By Brian Wilson". I don't recognize the tune at all, but apparently it's based on something. The booklet says it was originally called "Good Humor Man", but is that an early title of the BB's version, or is there a traditional song by that title?
8  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Let Go of Your Ego on: July 25, 2006, 06:58:42 AM
I was listening the Pet Sounds box and found it interesting that during an early take of "Hang On to Your Ego", Brian refers to it as "Let Go Of Your Ego", which is a completely opposite sentiment. Did the nature of this song change even before it turned into "I Know There's An Answer"? What the heck does Brian really want us to do with our egos??

Is anybody willing and/or able to post a picture of the front cover (and/or the back cover or any other artwork from the CD)? Or, at least a description of it? I'm mildly curious as to what the CD looks like.

Here you go...

I've found the disc at the Hallmark store at Rockefeller Center in NYC, below ground
at their concourse level store. $10.95 plus tax!

I work at 30 Rock and bought mine at the exact same Hallmark.  But it was $7.50 since I also bought three cards.  Grin
