Some interesting choices. I think I've compiled better myself, however.

[/quote ]As I do have a life with my family and my job outside of this board, I don't have time to read every single post in every single thread. Neither do my fellow mods. I mean, it'll be great if we were omnipotent and could be everywhere at once, but we can't.

Again, this is my last post on the subject, and I consider this matter closed. Any further attempt to bring it up on the board, again, will result in severe consequences.

Damn. I always saw you as some kind of Galactus-like entity!

Carl didn't take as long to tune up.

It would whittle down Loren Daro's list of negative influences on Brian to two.

I think the previous poster was referring to the acoustic version that was on the ESQ Dennis CD (and featured a little in the Endless Harmony doc).

At the time I remember it was stated that Al did play guitar on it.

No the one allegedly done for the country album (was it a guide track specifically for Merle Haggard to sing?)

Al. Already is for some mopes.
7  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Al Jardine as a guitarist. on: May 20, 2015, 12:13:56 PM
Does Al play the guitar on the acoustic solo version of California?
8  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Hitchcock Documentary on: May 20, 2015, 11:52:35 AM
Kent Jones has made a terrific documentary about the interviews between Francois Truffaut and Alfred Hitchcock about the latter's career and works - the ones that were developed into the famous book.

Well worth catching if you like classic cinema.

We could always assume he never picks up the guitar at home and just hasn't practised or improved the years. Not really likely, though, is it?
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What Surf's Up should of been.. on: May 18, 2015, 11:27:46 PM
Why not just go for the twelve tracks, kids?

Or push it to 14 like I did with Lady and Big Sur?

Bit of an obituary/tribute: http://fridaynightboys300.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/bb-king-rip.html
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: One good album of the 2nd half of the 70s: on: May 14, 2015, 12:17:28 PM
I'd leave Love You alone and I'd be tempted to leave LA and 15 BO alone too, but if I didn't, then I'd play fast and loose with the truth (but no covers):

01. Good Timin'
02. California Feeling
03. Santa Ana Winds
04. Lookin' Down the Coast
05. My Diane
06. Pitter Patter
07. Baby Blue
08. Angel Come Home
09. Country Pie
10. Had To Phone Ya
11. Love Surrounds Me
12. Full Sail
13. Winter Symphony
14. Go and Get That Girl
15. Lines
16. Why Doncha Come Out Tonight

Morning Christmas ought to be there, but it wouldn't fit.

14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What is the most devastating moment in the band's career? on: May 14, 2015, 09:53:38 AM
Murry's death, Dennis' death, Carl's death.
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: California saga broken down, not so much a trilogy.. on: May 14, 2015, 09:41:00 AM
I like it. Though I'm sure Big Sur was recorded more in the sphere of Surf's Up.

Punctuation, grammar and syntax. Another great trilogy.
16  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Steely Dan Outtakes Album on: May 13, 2015, 11:40:31 AM
I'm reminded of the box set with only ONE unreleased song!
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: SAN MIGUEL Question on: May 12, 2015, 12:26:57 PM
San Miguel was pulled for MIU and remixed. Then pulled again for KTSA. The version Carl used mastering TYOH was the remixed one. When they were working on LA in 1978, Bruce said the following:

"Guercio wants to open the album with “Rock Plymouth Rock/Roll” and end with “Been Way Too Long”. "

Never heard that about San Miguel, but it would have improved the album tremendously, even though it's far from my favourite DW song.
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Almost BB studio collaborations w/ other artists that never came to be on: May 12, 2015, 03:45:54 AM
Wasn't there originally a fuller version of California Dreamin' on Al's website
19  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Steely Dan Outtakes Album on: May 11, 2015, 02:31:11 PM
Too true. I was surprised they introduced a few 'rarities' nights into their concert schedule. Thought it might be the start of something, but no...

http://fridaynightboys300.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/steely-dan-outtakes-album.html

A little fun! It'll never happen, but I wish they'd release clean versions of this stuff.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Why Al's sudden switch? on: May 11, 2015, 11:05:24 AM
Al was the one behind the Unplugged segment in the 90s, I believe.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: When were The Beach Boys at their live performance peak? on: May 09, 2015, 01:13:57 AM
In terms of audience frenzy (and I can't speak to the 60s, having never seen them then), the highlight years for me were 1976-1977.  Huge, great band on stage, horns, Dennis in rare form starting the home stretch up front on Heroes & Villains and piano for Rhonda... from the audience it was out of control.  From the moment that Help Me Rhonda brass section intro peaked, followed by the full band kick into the song, the audience seemed to be one massive organism in a kind of (barely) controlled hysteria.  I've never seen or experienced anything quite like it since, except for the 2012 Hollywood Bowl reunion show.

Haha. I read that as 'massive orgasm'...
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Songs about The Beach Boys, individually or collectively on: May 05, 2015, 12:17:51 PM
Loudon Wainwright - One Time at a Time. Not about Brian but mentions him.  Great song.

Oops. wrong fucking thread!
