For years I used to hate disco with a vengeance. It was a mod on the old Capitol BB MB who turned me onto it. Donna Summer flung the doors wide open for me. Patrick Hernandez's "Born To Be Alive" was one I had sneered at for decades--I must have been mad! Smokin

Without any particular intricate knowledge of the LA album cover or its artists, I'm guessing it's just a random disc or maybe a depiction of a vinyl record.

That being said, *Laserdisc* hit the market in December 1978, and this illustration could equally (I guess) be seen as a laserdisc.

But "LA" came out in March 1979; so I'm guessing the cover art panels were done prior to December 1978, and it's not like Laserdisc was all over the place right when it hit the first markets in late 1978.

I'm guessing LD and CD tech progress was likely documented in trade journals of the era, so who knows.

IMDB shows a poster for the Brian documentary that had been mentioned late last year. This appears to be an in-house production (BriMel and Jean Sievers as producers). I'm sure some fans will nitpick using a Carl song in the title, but at least it's something more inspired than "An American Band" or "An American Family." "Endless Harmony" was a good, if rather half-ironic, title for the '98 BB doc.

Anyway, no release date. An odd list of "stars" at the top of the poster. I'm wondering if they interviewed Al Jardine for this; as the film is supposedly more about Brian's solo resurgence over the last 20-ish years, I think reconnecting with Al is a heartwarming part of the story that should be told even in the context of his "solo" career.

This is AMAZING.

But is this fake? Was there actually a 1977 German 12"?

Jack Nitzsche arranged Love Her but it (and the other three tracks the Walker Brothers cut in LA before going to London) were produced by Nick Venet so thatís one thing Scott had in common with our guys.

I know I'm pretty much alone with this, but MIU is one of my faves by The Boys. It's fun, nothing too deep, but it doesn't feel forced, you know? Must be all those Brian Wilson compositions, I guess.

LA? Make the disco track shorter, Shortnin' Bread longer (in style of long Can't Wait Too Long, with different variations coming up) and throw in a few Dennis tracks he was working on at the time. And voila, you'll have a classic odd AOR album there.
