Crazy to think that yesterday was the last date of the C50 tour, and the last time we saw any actual unity here. Anyone scared of damaging the brand has truly missed the entire point.

I wonder if it’s anything to do with how poorly Sunflower did on the charts? “Why is that worth celebrating”.

It's alright JaiGuruDev, I understood the reference.

Regarding the issue of “what can I do to help get this released”, there was a germ of an idea between me and one of the mods on the Beach Boys subreddit about getting people to cover songs from this era and publish/share videos of these covers advocating for Feel Flows' release. I haven't heard back from him in a bit, but certainly there are people here that may be interested in doing that as well, and what better way to show people how amazing this set would be than with the music itself. It may be for naught, or maybe a bombardment of covers could attract some attention. I mean, this (beautiful) cover of Thank Him ( got the attention of Brian's management and social media and was apparently heard by Brian himself, so who knows. And hey, even if it isn't released this year, with enough songs we can have our own version of the box set by the end of the year Grin

I saw Mike Love at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him about the Feel Flows set or anything.

He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”

I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.

The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

I hope to one day have as much free time as this kid.

I come in here at least twice a day to check for updates, and I appreciate any that I find - thanks to Howie for trying to keep us up to speed.

I find it interesting to think that any of us who have seriously followed this band for more than a few minutes can actually be surprised by things like this looming catastrophe re: the FF set.  To try to find logical reasons for the hold-up is an exercise in futility.  I agree with those who have posted that the focus should be on “what can I do to help get this released” rather than on “what could be the cause of the hold-up”.

HeyJude has explained in detail that the set is ready to go, like a huge box of candy that’s sitting on a shelf, but one or more of the store owners won’t open the doors...

And it has nothing to do with Milky Ways...

I'm talking about the one on the so-called Preiss SMiLE Tape, AKA "The Fire Tapes", not the mysterious L.A. version [which would've been the same].

After listening to the December 1966 "comp reel" version, which was an authentic Brian Wilson test edit, I can come to an conclusion. On the second Brother SMiLE boot, the version of DYLY has been replaced by the "comp reel"-sourced one (never seen an improved-quality version on boots yet, the bulk of the Fire Tape is on Secret Smile) but the piano fade-out ("Bicycle Rider Theme") wasn't on the comp reel so it stays the same. Something's going on....

It's possible that version of Do You Like Worms was made for the 1972 SMiLE reconstruction, hence the additional backing vocals from 0:52-1:08 despite being the same structure as the 1966 comp reel version (Verse/"Roll Plymouth Rock"/Bicycle Rider Ins./Verse/"Roll Plymouth Rock"/Bicycle Rider Ins./"Hawaiian Chanting"/Bicycle Rider Ending, cold outro). The versions I've heard of the '78 one sound better than the comp reel one.

Also, the "second" track on The Fire Tapes could've actually end the alternative fade-out ending [as we know it now], which was incorporated into the older Mark Linnet mixes of Worms. The 2011 one sounds about right, despite the Bicycle Rider second chorus. The Old Master Painter/False Barnyard are both track 5, as the "full backing track" from the SOT Source Tape follows the same pattern (no echo on the H&V Cantina Fade vocals).

I have zero interest in a "plan B"

Wish they'd taken photos of more...musically consequential sessions.

That is a great picture of Dennis. I think they all look great around this time, something not always guaranteed in future group pics

Yeah, well it's so cool to hear the studio chatter from these sessions - you realize just how NORMAL they all still were! Sadly, that would begin to change within a couple of years...

1. FF was completed and ready for release, the label and BRI are behind it. All on board.

2. Some member(s) of the group decided they don’t actually want to put it out yet for some unknown reason.

3. As it’s looking less and less likely that it will be released in 2020, “Plan B” seems to be in the works - this involves putting something together to cover the the tracks subject to 2020 copyright protection. As several of us noted many times in this thread - this potentially changes what FF is or will be, thus potentially jeopardizing it’s viability and future existence.
