The “This Show Will not Feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine, or David Marks” notices started happening in 2012 after the reunion tour.

Anybody with a decent sense for industry patterns and PR would have realized that doing a reunion under the same name Mike had been using on his own for 14 years, and then going back to Mike’s version, would lead to some confusion (not unlike when Al went out in 1998/99 with his “BBFF” band) from promoters/venues/spectators. Especially once that Nutty Jerry’s place biffed it and billed a Mike show as a reunion show, they had to start putting these more explicit notices when advertising shows.

At this stage, is it still needed? I don’t know. After 2012/13, it was only a few articles/publications that occasionally mixed things up and either implied or stated Mike’s shows were reunion shows. I don’t mind the blurb being added. It should have been there going back to 1998, but I highly doubt Mike would have wanted such notices on his shows in 1998/99/00, etc.

I’d be curious to know if, despite Brian and Al largely rolling over in the aftermath of C50 and just letting Mike do his thing, if perhaps they actually asked (or voted a demand) for this notice to appear on Mike’s shows. I’d guess not, because I don’t feel like such notices *always* appear on websites selling tickets to Mike’s shows.

It sure can't hurt to include such a note. When The Guess Who reunited in 2000-2001, they had to fight the reputation the band named had earned through dozens of years of bogus Guess Who's touring the US and Canada (Burton Cummings called them "Kale's Klones", because the only legit GW member in those lineup was bassist Jim Kale).

IMHO, when Mike got the license to tour as "the Beach Boys", his group should have been billed as "Mike Love's Beach Boys". I have nothing against the touring group, they are the best representation of Beach Boys music out there today; but they are not the original group, they never can be the original group. The classic Beach Boys died with Carl (and some would say when Dennis died).

Well I'll tell you what my gateway to C.P.E. was:

The third movement of his Cello ( slash flute slash keyboard ) Concerto in A major:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1r3HQmi4Kw

Twas that very recording, too.  The "head" is so playful!  I heard it on some sort of radio situation and immediately had to have it forever.

Thank you! That movement was a theme tune on Dutch TV! I've located the two previous movements of that recording and will play all three in succession.

(That is, once my head has settled down after what I've just heard in the "General On-Topic Discussions"--chills-down-the-spinesville!)

Doing unto others is the golden rule, but doing it with you would be so very cool

I think we're supposed to cull from random songs for each post? These are some of Mike Love's most poetic lyrics...a bright, under-appreciated gem that I hope never gets lost to the desolate unforgiving entropy that governs our Universe.

Wow, JH. You've really been and gone and done it this time! The passage at 1:52 is simply breathtaking.

Beach Boys fans have such a lot to thank you for!

I'm sharing them with some BBs friends off this board, too.

I've shared that Sloop John B video with at least 2 people in my real life - if I were using social media anymore I'd have shared it on my feed. These videos are so insightful - I wish I could add more than saying "thanks" - but I always look forward to reading the music aficionados posts about these videos.

Great job again. Never knew how much of a country sound was in this song.

[Buxtehude and] pretty much all the Bachs I love.

This is where I'm completely at sea. To me they've always just been the sons of... that fellow. LOL

Next time you look in, JH, perhaps you can point me at a son or two (and maybe a work or two). I'd be most grateful, as I have absolutely no idea where to start!!
