Pretty evident. I know not to bother with your next attempt.

I'm shattered.

What's up with that? You presented this as a review of something concrete and then you can't be arsed to check to see if what you said was accurate.  Roll Eyes To quote that great American philosopher, B. D. Wilson: "It's a strange world."

No, I presented it as a quick review with intentions of writing a more thorough review at a later time.  In essence this was a brief rundown of my initial reactions upon finishing the book.  This isn't a journalistic effort or professional review; it's a post on a stupid message board.  You're quibbling over a minor point in a list of mostly glowing praise.  So no, I won't be arsed.

Pretty evident. I know not to bother with your next attempt.

This week: The Boys (mature stuff  Evil ); The Band - a comp I made - mostly well-known stuff but no Dixie, an overblown lachrymose racist little number; some piano jazz - Evans, Peterson, Monk, Tatum; Ellington; Paul Simon; Walter Becker; Paul Buchanan, Van the Man, Miles Davis.

What's with the "you may be right... if you are correct" nonsense ? The guy has looked at the relevant pages of the book, something you seemingly have not.

I don't recall the descriptions of the middle albums being equal or longer than the early albums, and since Stebbins' treatment of the middle albums was a minor part of my larger point (which is that the later albums got little to no treatment), I have little motivation to go back to the book to confirm either my recollection or his rebuttal.  Thus the concession that he may be right.  It's no more nonsensical than you adding a space at the end of your sentences before punctuation.  What the hell is up with that?

I've probably said this already but I can't be arsed to trawl through the thread, so: Steely Dan. However, Paul Simon would be my next favourite artist, even before Becker and Fagen.

   My current custom SURF'S UP slots "WIBNTLA" as the coda after the title song. "4th of July" maybe between "Disney Girls" and "SDT"?

Yeah, I could see "Fourth" going there, as well.

So...

01.   Don’t Go Near The Water
02.   Long Promised Road
03.   Take A Load Off Your Feet
04.   Lady
05.   Disney Girls (1957)
06.   Student Demonstration Time
07.   Fourth of July
08.   Feel Flows
09.   Lookin’ At Tomorrow (A Welfare Song)
10.   Big Sur
11.   A Day In The Life Of A Tree
12.   (Wouldn‘t It Be Nice) To Live Again     
13.    Til I Die
14.   Surf’s Up 

Or wibntla after Til I Die?

Everybody has their own favourite Beach Boys and choices sometimes defy logic. I don't see the early 70s period springing out of nowhere, nor do I see Smile or Dennis' stuff doing the same. They were still an artistic unit, though a fraught one, at the time and were evolving, trading ideas and themes off each other, changing with the times and artistic growth (might not be the artistic growth you wanted, but that's tough), though with less Brian input. I don't think they ever became artistically bankrupt, but things do reach something of a nadir at several points later in the career.

Will do, Andrew. Used to visit his Pet Sounds store and bought my first BB T shIrt from there - a Smile one, of course. He used to live near me - not sure he does now - and would be a regular at the local barbershop - not to have his hair cut, just to sit and chat. Occasionally, he was given the brush and asked to sweep up!
