My vote is for: "The Faded Rock Group Revival" album.

My vote is for "Reverberation"!  Or "Landlocked". Ha Ha Ha Ha!

you're still a mystery is one of the only tunes that needs a release i think.  I'm sure it'll be a mix of new and re-recorded unreleased.  brian said he's writing new songs.

Ocean Way is not a good album title (imo). It's only slightly better than, say, Keepin' The Summer Alive or Summer In Paradise.

How about "Summer In Autumn"?

I like the Doctor's title. "The Faded Rock Group Revival". Technically Bruce Johnston's made-up title for an album in the works.

I cannot for the life of me imagine Brian Wilson standing in a studio singing along to a recording of his long gone brother Carl or Dennis. I think it would not be a pleasant situation for him.

"pleasure island" would work if Brian uses the beach boys to complete his rock and roll album he has been talking about since 1999....  Grin

Pleasure Island is miles better than Ocean Way. And its a name that would intrigue today's audience more as well.

Consider:  Brian's unheard-of return to vocal form in his 60's since the release of Smile, the amazing production of the Disney record (some of his best work since 1967, IMHO), the crap-eating grin on his face in the recent FB Capitol records photos, the Smile Sessions being released in a few weeks , and the fact that he holds the ultimate hand in any BB reunion-- I'm certain he could negotiate full authority in every realm in the project, and even have Darian with him every time he's in a room with Mike (a sort-of reverse Surf-Nazi kind of deal...), or he'd be glad to walk away and return to living-legend land.

There's only one title for this puppy:

The Beach Boys -- Return of the Piper (2011)

I don't understand why people keep asking for re-recordings of old songs they've already heard. Give me 12 new ones!!!

Preach it brother.  If Brian wrote 20 songs in a weekend, 5 years ago, then by god Brian, Mike, Al, & Bruce can write 12 in a month.

I just think, as a final farewell album, they can do better than 'Desert Drive' and 'Dancin' The Night Away'.

That is, in my opinion, honestly the best they can do.

We will be lucky if a reunion album has songs of that quality.

I mean, what else has anyone in the group produced in the last 30 years that suggests they can top those songs? Brian has certainly written some good ballads in that time, but have any of his up tempo tunes fared better than these two?

Good Kinda Love. 

Live Let Live

The Waltz

Oxygen to the Brain

California Role



there's 5 that are better than Desert Drive and Dance the night away, imho.  That's not counting Ballads; which were all better than these.  "Forever She'll Be My Surfer Girl" shits all over anything mentioned in this thread yet.

Brian said that in a few interviews, I believe he's talking about the entirety of "Lucky Old Sun", and the other songs that were kicked around about that time like "The Path of Life" and "The Beatleman" or whatever that song's called (I've never heard it).  You've got to remember when Brian talks about writing songs he's generally talking about the actual composition not necessarily the lyrics. 

Still though, even if Brian just writes the music if he can write 20 in a weekend (according to him) then he definately still has the abillity to help the Beach Boys make an album. 


BTW, to change topic again (sorry).... does anybody else find it FASCINATING that the more things change, the more they stay the same? 

The band (the beach boys) is once again begging Brian to help them make a record.  Begging Brian to go on tour with them.  Brian's once again battling writers block, and self-doubt.

I like the idea somebody here had about the group doing a song about Dennis or Carl, rather than trying to relcomplete an unreleased song with Carl or Dennis singing. Something along the lines of Brian's Back. Ocean Way could be a song about how Dennis loved to take his boat out on the ocean, or how he loved to surf.

Jay, have you ever heard "Calpyso" by John Denver?  He wrote it about Jauques Cousteou (sorry Jauques, I just butchered your name!).  GREAT song that captured the spirit of the man (the Calypso was Jauque's boat!) and really illustrated what kind of person he was, as well as John's great gift for songwriting.

Or have you ever heard (this is pretty silly) "Bob's got a swing band in heaven" ?  LOL!  It's about Bob Wills and his band, of course they wouldn't do anything like that for Carl or Dennis but it just shows that sometimes the best way to honor somebody who's gone is to write a great song about what they were like, and what they loved, how they lived their lives.

Or on a sadder note, something like George Jones' "Who's gonna fill their shoes?" . 

OR, Don McClean's "American Pie". 

They wouldn't have to write anything as serious as that but I think they could come up with something good.  Calpyso is the best example of what I'd like to hear.

The only song out of those that I know is American Pie. I'll have to look up the others you mentioned.

Another song in this vein is 'Three Stars' performed by Eddie Cochran which pays tribute to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens & The Big Bopper, sad that Eddie himself then died around a year after recording this.

Oh no, please no song about Dennis/Carl. Do you have an idea how cheesy that would be? We're talking about the Beach Boys. "Brian's back" alone is terrible enough lyrically. Or listened to Mike's tribute to George Harrison "Pisces brothers" ? Do you really want to have something like that on a new (and certainly last) Beach Boys album ? Carl's "Like a brother" is a nice exception but that was written about Brian.



Somebody said he never listened to Brian's recordings that were recorded around the time of TLOS. Here are some links.

Couldn't find "Oh mi amore".


There are still two older Brian compositions that I'd love to hear completed with the Beach Boys. "Do you have any regrets" and "I sleep alone". The latetr one has to have a slight change of the lyrics

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.
