Carl's studio vocals are what MAKE the song. Although I have to say that Mike's vocals are very good on the studio recording too, and as much as people might have issues with the song not being "BBs" enough, or too cheesy, Mike does sing well in this register. But without Carl's vocals, it's just weak sauce. Carl literally made the song.
I have a hard time hearing any other Beach Boy trying to sing Carl's vocals on ANY song. God Only Knows, Good Vibrations, Darlin', Kokomo - there's a reason that guy was special. THAT voice!

I don't know...the lyrics don't really bother me as much as, say, Belles of Paris.
Mike sounds like he is reading out of a geography book....

It's funny, I just sat down with my guitar and gave this a quick Ramones-formatted once-over and it totally works.  The best part is that the Ramones obviously would have just eliminated the sax solo completely.

It needs to be played at double speed, with distortion and leather jackets

I always completely lose it when he says "cocaine", here at the 8 second mark.

Well, I don't know. With this new song, the fire is gone after 1:20 and then it's just lame and the whole production has a strange non-rocking sound. "Big boys" was better imo. Let's see what the rest will be like

I agree with you it was put on voice to deal with the Myke touring machine of the time. Wink

The Spring LP was released in 72. Was Brian's voice starting to change as far back as that?. The ITBOMM demo was recorded in 75. Was there a three year period of voice change?
Yes it was.  Brian' vocals on So Tough bear it out (although buried a bit in the mix). Somewhere in my collection I have  Brian's vocals isolated on the songs he's there vocally but I need to hunt it down (burned to cd before my old computer died; it's packed up in a box somewhere).

From memory...he's the high part on Mess of help (sounding more like his MIU era falsetto). He's doing the "Marcella Hey" tag on Marcella, in addition to the higher part on the "hey yeah Marcella" part.  And on He Come Down, the "eee-ee" part on the left channel is indeed Brian, sounding EXACTLY like he did in 1976 (right channel is Mike).

I asked someone who would definitely know and without hesitation got confirmation.



Thanks for the clarification, Billy. Is there additional info concerning Brian's voice change during these few years? For example, why was his voice improved for MIU?

Yes. ..he had been "experimenting" with different vocal stylings for a while. His voice was indeed changing but not as drastically as it would first appear. He did indeed have an issue with laryngitis as mentioned in his book which is why 15BO featured his vocals being raspier than anything before or since until 1979 or so. Course, recording and touring while having laryngitis is not conducive to healing the vocal cords. Throw in smoking like a chimney and there's already a recipe for disaster even before you add drugs back into the mix.

So yeah Brian's voice did change for a variety of reasons. Had he taken care of himself his voice might have come back a bit more. 1976 was the outlier. MIU was the "real" mature Brian voice. Sadly afterwards is when the real permanent decline came...
