Just announced -New Orleans Jazz &Heritage Festival canceled.
Donít know if this was premature on the organizationís part. But COVID is super bad down in these parts right now.
Anyway, Beach Boys wonít be performing.
Wondering if the Biloxi shows will still go on?

My favorite is The Warmth of the Sun.

Rick Nelson had some really fine country rock in the late 60s -early 70s with his Stone Canyon Band. Had a hit with ďGarden Party.Ē And second the earlier suggestion of his Live at the Troubadour album

Watched it twice and really enjoyed it.
Downloaded the live album that had been made of these performances .

Grrr.
Wanted to see this movie. Preoccupied with medical appointments I didnít check our local movie theater schedule. Summer of Love had been playing - but yesterday was the last day. :-(  This is a film that would be fun to see with a group of people who would get into the music, singing, clapping along Ö
It is available for viewing on a pay service in the US - Hulu. Supposedly there is a free trial available but donít like having to put credit card info in. Iím not good at going back and canceling before the trial period ends

Never thought that I would get tired of Susie Cincinnati. But canít count how many times Iíve heard it over the past few days.

But all is good - playing Kiss Me Baby now

Playing Mt Vernon and Fairway!

Iíve heard songs by The Wilsons, Willie Nelsonís take on TWOTS, several songs by Bruce (solo and Bruce &Terry). Iím seeing more variety with the non hits songs.
Yes there are some songs that are being repeated too much. Maybe they  think casual listeners donít listen to it more than an hour, or are just using it as background music during parties, barbecues etc and donít notice the repetition.
Nice to hear Leaving This Town, then shortly after, Sail on, Sailor. Happy 70th Birthday, Blondie!

Surprised to hear Transcendental Meditation this morning. There was a snippet by Mike beforehand - couldnít hear what he said as I stepped out of the room for a second. I wonder if he said something about how calming TM is, then this song was played.  LOL

For me itís Getcha Back.

Anyone heard All This is That yet?

Theyíre playing a live version of The Trader now (different from Concert album)
Kokomo in SpanishÖ
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Beach Boys channel is coming back to SiriusXM on: July 05, 2021, 08:35:42 AM
Turned on the station 45 minutes ago to an alternate version of Til I Die that I hadnít heard before
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Beach Boys channel is coming back to SiriusXM on: July 01, 2021, 01:43:45 PM
I had earlier posted about the channel on another thread. Anyway, saw that it will be on for two months.
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / Ask The Honored Guests / Re: The Beach Boys Channel Is Back! on: July 01, 2021, 09:42:36 AM
Okay itís on.
Started out with snippets of songs and comments by various Beach Boys.
Then to the Music:
Surfin USA
Fun Fun Fun
Mike introducing Wild Honey (said he found jar of wild honey in Brianís kitchen)
Wild Honey
When I Grow Up, Matchpoint of Our Love, Catch a Wave, Youíre So Good to Me, etc
Intro to Surfin by Bruce (said he flipped upon hearing surf music with vocals)
Strange choice - Live version of WIBN at Ann Arbor.
Kind of confusing intro to Wendy by Brian (maybe didnít hear him right).  Note: heard the cough lol.

Was about to say theyíre playing it safe but theyíre playing Dennisí Pacific Ocean Blue.

Pretty enjoyable so far. Playing Surfer Girl from Knebworth. Love that they are playing live performances
14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2020 Tour Thread on: June 24, 2021, 12:20:03 PM
Just saw that The Beach Boys are slated to perform at the rescheduled New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, which will be taking place for two weekends in October. The exact day/time TBD.
October is cooler than the usual time (April/May). However itís Hurricane seasonÖ
15  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: R. I. P. Lloyd Price on: May 11, 2021, 12:48:23 AM
I have been thinking - who is left of the first wave of great New Orleans r&b?
The only one I can think of who is still with us as of this writing is Clarence "Frogman" Henry. Just listened to his wonderful "But I Do."
Precious few left of the second wave - Irma Thomas and Aaron Neville. Neville announced his retirement from performing except an occasional special event.

All those wonderful singers gone. But will continue to love and listen to their joyous music.

Thanks!
17  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Jazz on: March 07, 2021, 11:31:13 AM
Thank you for the kind words and the link.
Things have been crazy in my world for a while now so itís hard keeping up with the message boards.
Spent yesterday listening via Zoom to some fascinating history lectures.
Had a goofy dream that involved Al (for some reason heís been in at least 3 of my dreams over the years). I told him that I was impressed that his cat knew how to play the mandolin. He looked at me as if I was crazy. Said he didnít have a mandolin (does he have a cat?) Don't know why I dreamt that as I havenít seen any mandolin playing by man, woman or cat in quite a while.  LOL

Brian just posted on FB - got his vaccine at Dodger Stadium
19  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Jazz on: January 28, 2021, 11:46:28 AM
Iím watching the Ken Burns doc Jazz. Have watched it before but itís been awhile.
Part 3 spends a good amount of time covering cornetist Bix Beiderbecke. All I really remember about him was that he was in his 20s when he passed away.  But the doc indicated how much Black musicians respected him and that it was a shame that he couldnít perform in concerts with them . Wanted to cry when he finally got the opportunity to jam after hours with his hero, Louis Armstrong . Very sad life, a shame that no matter the success he had, his father considered him to be a failure.
Looking for a good Bio, plus checking out recordings.

Just got word that Eugene Wright, 97, last surviving member of the ďclassicĒ Dave Brubeck Quartet, has joined his bandmates
and is making some heavenly odd time signature fun with them now.
RIP

 Thanks! :-)

I had asked this on another thread:
Anyone know when Brian recorded his version of Carlís ďHeavenĒ just made available online?
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Happy Birthday in Heaven, Carl on: December 21, 2020, 09:24:49 PM
The video can be viewed on YouTube.
Itís under Happy Birthday Carl. It was posted today (21 Dec)
Anyone know when Brian recorded this?
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Happy Birthday in Heaven, Carl on: December 21, 2020, 10:04:39 AM
A happy heavenly birthday to Carl.
Brian posted on his FB page a beautiful take on Carlís ďHeaven.Ē
25  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Your Favorite Non-BBs Christmas Album on: December 17, 2020, 08:00:43 AM
Not a Christmas album and donít know if it was ever recorded on a record, but I just heard online The Monkees singing Riu Chiu.
A cappella. Excellent blend.
The folk group I was in sang this song, same arrangement, every Christmas season. I believe it was popular in folk music circles back in the 60s.
