A little slow on the return...don't make it here every day....

I agree that is likely Johnny Winter on the first solo.  Anyway, I would like to review this thread and check out more of the music linked.  I enjoyed the Canned Heat -- I am a fan of theirs.  They were my very first Concert at age 13 -- my mom brought me!  This was right around Woodstock and Harvey Mandel was on guitar.  I got his and Fito's autographs on my ticket stub!  All were great players, but for me it's Al Wilson who really carries it over.  I am a pretty fair harmonica player and have played in all sorts of bands.  In one we were working on "On the Road Again."  I could not replicate his harp solo.  For one I think he doctored his harp.  But moreover there is a fluidity in his playing that is uncanny.  Was a very soulful cat.

No worries about replying on time, ABD. This is cyberspace! LOL Thanks for the confirmation.

Al Wilson... I remember exactly what I was doing when they announced his death. I also remember that when Canned Heat mimed to "On The Road Again", Bob Hite was usually on harmonica duties!

Cool that you saw them perform and got those autographs! My wife saw them at the Kralingen Festival in 1970, only a couple of months before Al died. Interesting to hear from a player that he modified his harp -- one wonders how!

Here's another favourite of mine, "My Mistake" from Livin' the Blues:

How about interrogating the system as regards some of the Poops titles other than Ecology?

We've tried everything Poops related that circulates or is known but so far nothing's shown aside from Ecology

Thanks, that clarifies that.

To anyone who listened - did they perform "Drive-In"? According to setlist.fm they didn't. That seems crazy to me. You'd think that be automatic!
Disappointingly, they did not. Didn't even play In the Parkin' Lot either!

All Summer Long (Mono, 2015 AP release)

Side 1:

1. I Get Around - *****
This has such a unique sound to it, and the falsetto here is almost haunting. Maybe my favorite Beach Boys Song

2. All Summer Long - *****
Very strong song to follow-up, love the instrumentation here.

3. Hushabye - *****
This one is phenomenal too. What a strong start to the album.

4. Little Honda - *****
This is one of the better car (er, motorcycle in this case) songs. High energy and exciting.

5. We'll Run Away - *****
Great overall performance and very emotional delivery, love this song.

6. Carl's Big Chance - **

Side 2:

7. Wendy - *****
Awesome song opening side 2. Love the instrumental break here too.

8. Do You Remember - ****
This song doesn't try to do too much but is fun. I like it.

9. Girls on the Beach - ****
Great song, the harmonies here are something else.

10. Drive-In - ***
This is fine. This is one of two songs in the AP releases with a bad mix.

11. Our Favorite Recording Sessions - *

12. Don't Back Down - ****
Great song, this one also has a bad mix though. Happy they did it live eventually

Overall Rating: ****
Lots of amazing songs, this is either their strongest to this point, or the second-strongest after Surfer Girl. Nearly all hits, few misses.

Shut Down Volume 2 (Mono, 2015 AP release)

Side 1:

1. Fun, Fun, Fun - *****
Classic song, would become a closer for concerts. The fade is incredible.

2. Don't Worry Baby - ****
Absolutely immortal. One of Brian's best vocal performances to me.

3. In the Parkin' Lot - ***
Not much meat to this one but still a fun song.

4. Cassius Love vs. Sonny Wilson - *

5. The Warmth Of The Sun - *****
Another legendary song. No words.

6. This Car of Mine - ****
Solid song to close out side 1. Decent vocal from Dennis.

Side 2:

7. Why Do Fools Fall in Love - *****
Great cover, love the high notes and bass vocals here.

8. Pom, Pom Play Girl - ***
This one is okay. Would prefer a stronger song here.

9. Keep an Eye on Summer - ****
Pretty strong song. Love the lead and harmonies here.

10. Shut Down, Part II - **

11. Louie, Louie - **

12. Deenny's Drums - **

Overall Rating: ***
There are a number of truly great songs on here, but it closes with such a bad trio of songs that kills any momentum.

How anyone in their right mind could be interested in this fake, watered down sham of what is called The Beach Boys is beyond any logical type of reasoning. It absolutely displays how dutifully stupid and naive the general public can be. And how dumb is it that people actually think that Mike Love is the official bearer of the group name after he has dragged the legacy through the stinking muck with the likes of Stamos and other non talents that appear on stage with this clown. It has gone far beyond removing the license from this gawd awful jackass and either retire the name or give it back to Brian  who is the ONLY one to whom it should belong. It's time to put Mike Love down where he belongs and let him perform under his own Gosh Darn name and quit trying to fool those poor pathetic followers that HE is The Beach Boys.

I want to thank Mike Love for his continued uncanny ability to invent new and novel ways of making me embarrassed to be a Beach Boys  fan, well into the 21st Century!
I think Mike does these things just to get his name in the headlines. Remember his speech at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame? He's never shown any remorse for that; in his view, it was good publicity for the Beach Boys, who were going to be overshadowed by the Fab Four and Robert Zimmerman. "I'm gonna make sure all the headlines aren't about Ms. Ross and Macca not showing up".


I actually think Mike’s speech at the HOF was kinda cool.

Oh my Lord that is awful.

First off, it is so obvious when Stamos is on kit. What a damn mess. Got enough cymbals?

Second: vocals. Ouch. I did indeed listen all the way through, not much else to do! It wasn't until SLOOP JOHN B/WOULDN"T IT BE NICE that I found a decent lead vocal. Is it Totten? Last time I saw them (2018) Bruce was still taking the lead on this. The harmonies through the entire set are disastrous. Mike finally gets a decent lead on "California Girls". Bruce sounds drunk on "Do You Wanna Dance" like he's legit slurring. What even is that? And is that McGrath butchering Rhonda?

As their fearless leader would say .....   SAD!
