I know this is slightly off topic, but what does the name 'filledplage' refer to? I know I'm a bit slow out of the gate, but I feel like I'm missing something here. Thanks.

I actually always thought it was "filledPAGE" as her posts tend to be very long (which is fine), just realised recently it was PLAGE. Plage is beach in french so?

Bullying? All I'm seeing is arguing back and forth (which is typical of these hideous political threads)

Yes, bullying.

From whom?

The article has very little information. "Musical acts booked by third-party groups include the Beach Boys, Journey, Bret Michaels, Rick Springfield, Rascal Flatts, Martina McBride and The Band Perry." There are often many corporate-type parties surrounding these National Conventions. I guess we will have to wait and see if they are a part of it in an official capacity.

The Beach Boys will be in Toledo on July 21 and have an open date on July 20...

Just pointing out this was the second reply to this thread. Completely ignored. Now we are talking about Mike Love playing gigs for David Duke???

If only as much energy could be put into reading your posts as is put into bullying, insulting, hypothetical trolling, and talking down to FdP.

I wouldn't want another multi disk Smile set, just Disk 1 reissued in stereo with minor changes here and there. There's a discussion going on about this on the Linett thread. Do You Like Worms?, Fire, Surf's Up etc. in full stereo is preferable to Carry Me Home in my view. Also, anything I've heard from the Disk 2-5 material doesn't sound 'murky' or 'muddy'.


Just so you know, there was a stereo mix of Surf's Up on the final side of the Smile vinyl release.  It sounds great.   Here's the stereo Smile mixes I know of from the box set, the vinyl or from Made in California.

Heroes and Villains (Stereo Mix)
Our Prayer (2012 The Smile Sessions Stereo Mix)
Surf's Up (stereo mix)  
Vega-Tables (Stereo Mix)
You're Welcome (Stereo mix)
Wind Chimes (Stereo Mix)

The ones on the vinyl are not accessible to me, I'm afraid. I bet they sound glorious.

Also, may I just stress to the others here that Mark Linett and Alan Boyd's reproduction and mixing talents will not last forever. We must not be distracted by 70s and 80s obscurities, which will always remain, but concentrate on stereo Smile. Whatever the views of some here, an objective view should be taken.


Just because you think mono is outdated doesn't mean a stereo SMILE would be better.  If mono was outdated and undesirable why would the entire Beatles catalog be (re)released in Mono so recently?

A small lost of albums FAR better in mono than stereo:

VDP- Song Cycle
Randy Newman- S/T
Simon and Garfunkel- Bookends
The Beatles- Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's
Hendrix- Axis: Bold as Love
Nilsson- PSS and Aerial Ballet
Every BB album up to Friends

If you have not compared versions of the above albums, I strongly urge you to do so, unless you prefer studio gimmicks, I believe you will find the mono mixes far more engaging. It's not about what's out of date or en vogue, but what sounds best.  I think we can all agree on that.

"I look at sound like a painting, you find a balance, you have a balance and the balance is conceived in your mind. You finish the sound, you dub it down and you've stamped out a picture of your balance with that mono dubdown. But in stereo, you leave the dubdown to the listener- to his speaker placement and speaker balance. It just doesn't seem complete to me."
 -Brian Wilson


Add me to the list of obscure 70's and 80's material. Atleast if they want my money.   

I want so badly to give my money to the BB's, but I can't justify buying the same titles over and over.

Agree 110%    Carl is the least known of the Wilson Bros.   Just trying to gather some information about him.  I got very excited when Long Promised Road came out; however, it fell short of being a biography of Carl. It did give me a greater appreciation of him as a musician, but still interested in the man himself.

Carl has been gone for more than 18 years, and those of us who still love and admire the man continue to feel like his story has not yet been told.  Long-time Beach Boys fans (53 years, in my case) are still hopeful that we'll live long enough to read the definitive account of Carl's life.

Hey, no argument from me. But that is why it's important to know what went down in the time frame when the BBs were suddenly a big deal again--but without a way to tie it to their 69-73 work (the period, BTW, when Carl took over a lot of the production reins from Brian).

The quote about Brian-Dennis-Carl is well-known, probably published several dozen times. And I'm sure that Carl did do a lot of what is intimated in that quote (compensatory compromise). But when you listen to the SOT sessions for Beach Boys Party you hear a not-quite-19-year old guy who was very sharp and was already all business in the studio. Stephen Desper's testimony makes it clear that Carl showed a great deal of affinity for production and took on a more encompassing role in the process. And, yes, we know a good bit about that as well.

The mystery, at least as I see it, is why that seemed to come to a stop in 1974. People say Carl and Dennis couldn't take the band in a new direction. Sorry, but they had already done that. Of course there was still a desire to keep Brian in the mix--after all, no one else had a hit or wrote anything like GV so the band needed his aura if nothing else. But Carl was the prime mover behind many changes in 1970-72 (Reiley, bringing in Blondie and Ricky, etc.) and he was acknowledged as the leader in this time frame. What happened to all that? This is a good part of what we need to know in order to "solve the mystery."
