It's About Time is one of my favorite beach boys tracks. I love the production on it. I've thought for years that the isolated drum, percussion and organ track should be released officially.

I'm actually amazed that the instruments sold for as cheap as they did. Maybe I'm being to unrealistic, but considering the history I would have expected six figures. Were I a family member or holder of the estate I'd be almost insulted.

I bought it and read it. Iíll admit it is entertaining and interesting but I wish it didnít leave such a bitter aftertaste-the portrayal of Dennis and Carl are almost wholly negative (Mike only positive). Obviously this is Rockyís experiences but the book needs some balance. A few tacked on words about how Carl And Dennis were not that bad just didnít cut it

I'm pleased to hear you found the book "entertaining and interesting." Thanks for that.
We certainly did not mean to leave a negative portrayal of Dennis and Carl. I'm a little surprised that that is the result for you.

Dennis was a tragic figure by any standards, all that talent destroyed by drugs. No way to whitewash that. It's just the way it went.
As for Carl, things went down a certain way, the reader can judge for themselves. Thanks for getting the book in any case.

I'm sure Rocky would like to weigh in on this topic. Do you know how he could be allowed back on the site, what he'd have to do to get back on?

Ron
With all due respect(to you), there isn't a chance in hell of him ever being allowed back bere. He was permanently banned from this board, with good reason. You might want to take a look through his posting history to get an idea of why he's not welcome here.

I'm also surprised that none of the "Peter Sellers tape" was used.

Save the mono mix included on the Blu-ray disc, everything in this set is newly mixed/remixed. The original album is a remix, the Esher demos are freshly mixed from the multi-tracks, and the three discs of session material are all fresh mixes.

While they certainly could have gone back to the original EMI alternate mixes that were dubbed to the "Sellers Tape", I think they were going for the most interesting and different studio outtakes. The Sellers tape has mostly just minor mix/editing variances compared to the commercial mono mix. Those extra measures near the end of "Sexy Sadie" are probably the *most* noteworthy thing on the tape.
It's been a few years since I've listened to it. I remember a few interesting things besides the full version of Sexy Sadie. There was the weird "sound collage" at the start of Yer Blues.

I'm actually really surprised that the complete and unedited master take wasn't included. A section of music lasting about twenty or so seconds was edited out of the final mix.

Which song? What are you referring to?
It would help if I actually named the song I was talking about, huh?  LOL I was referring to "Sexy Sadie".

I really don't see the point in the endless Pet Sounds nonsense. It's been damn bear 20 years since he first did it live. And let's face it, he really can't do it justice anymore, even on his good nights.

One big pet peeve of mine is whenever somebody says "no?" after asking a question.

I just did a quick check, and all of the tracks are still up.

Really Jay? Great!  I donít see the 5 CDs of new mixes. Links please, so all can enjoy! 👍
It's three discs of alternate takes, and a cd of some of the demos. The only new mix is the remix of the released album by Giles Martin.

I don't have the set yet, but all of the tracks have been put on YouTube already. The big revelations for me were the 12:54 version of Helter Skelter(that is still somehow incomplete-it fades out), the "blues" version of Cry Baby Cry, and the Let It Be rehearsal. Among a few others.  Grin

There is a good portion of it on YouTube, amazingly enough.
I literally said the exact same thing, in the post that you quoted.  Roll Eyes It seems that the entire set has been uploaded to the official Beatles YouTube page, but for some reason the "videos" don't show as being listed on the channel. I'm not sure why. But if you specifically type in what track you want to hear, it comes up in the "main" YouTube page. But you have to be specific(take number, etc) about it.

I'm probably in the minority, but I really couldn't care less about Brian's outside productions. I know it's part of his overall body of work, but I think the main focus should always be his Beach Boys work, and his own solo work.

Oh easily. Songs from an Italian Restaurant alone bears that out.
And New York State of Mind, Captain Jack, Zanzibar...

I think Billy Joel is one of the most underrated songwriters.

You have to skip to about 10 minutes into the video to see the group.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / The Beach Boys Media / Re: The Official BB You Tube Thread on: October 28, 2018, 08:48:33 PM
This is a pretty cool news clip that has some concert footage I've never seen before. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KYDc8cKxPM
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Dennis' Voice 1980-1981 on: October 27, 2018, 12:23:02 AM
I don't hear Dennis at all in What You Do To Me, but if I put the dvd into my other dvd player I use as a "CD player" and turn the volume up a bit, I can hear Dennis rather enthusiastically congratulating Carl after the song ends. It's quite touching, if a bit sad because his voice is so hoarse you can't quite make out what he says. By the way, you can actually hear(and see) Dennis saying "Are you ready?" before the show starts.
The way that show started, with each of the Beach Boys being driven onto the field, and over to the stage, made for a very long introduction. I think Dennis was getting impatient at waiting for the other guys to get there. IIRC, Dennis and Mike were up there first, Brian and Carl were last.
I'm still wondering what was going on between Dennis and Mike. Mike walked up to him and said something, and Carl very quickly got between them.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love/touring group Christmas album on: October 26, 2018, 12:02:29 PM
You know what? I commend Mike for tackling a song that seems to be right at the edge of his vocal range(Reason For The Season). That the man is damn near 80 makes it even more remarkable.
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love/touring group Christmas album on: October 25, 2018, 11:50:40 PM
I'm probably going to be in the minority on this, but if Reason For The Season had been part of the unreleased mid 70's Beach Boys Christmas album, it probably would have been one of the highlights. I like it.
