I find the percussion during the verse to be distracting and I have no reason to believe Brian would have kept this idea.

they've always been there - just lower in the mix  Lips Sealed

the "enhanced" percussion aside, I think this track is the pièce de résistance of the collection  Smiley

While the groovy "take 5" is great, I still prefer the GV box version. The tag there is divine. Now with the session material it will be easy to reconstruct this version in a great quality!

My percussion do you mean the click clack noise in the background? Because I always liked that part.

Well, in fact he junked the WHOLE track, not only the percussion! Grin

This is another song on the SMiLE Sessions which has benefited from an exciting new mix in my opinion.

Why?

Because it is intrusive, because its unnecessary, because its the wrong sound in the arrangement, because it sounds dumb, and because it's partially out of time. Apart from that its great!  Grin

Agree.

I really really prefer the harpsichord/celesta version. I hope I'll be able to use that one in my mix, because we have a pretty long take of that version.

Must be the only one who disagrees. I've ALWAYS loved that percussion and though I kinda liked it better when it was lower in the mix, I still like it.

-I like how they combined the two versions in the piano break.
-Chorus sounds MUCH better.
-Ending sounds awesome!

This one really blew me away. The mix is great and I love the percussion. This and DYLW are very improved I think.

I absolutely loved this track. I love the percussion, and I love the extended "bridge" if that's what you want to call it. The build up during that bit to the refrain is spectacular.

The percussion, at least, during the verses do take away from the subtle feel the '93 mix has. And then the blatant pitch shifting at the end to try to match the Brian Wilson Presents version. Why?? For any person that hasn't heard the original sessions before, it's deceiving in a way. The fading out tinkling pianos are so understated and cool.

I do miss the music box fade, but I actually like the percussion. Is that Brian beatboxing in the background? Whatever is making it that sound, it's a perfect example of how Brian was trying to add some goofiness/childishness to some of the songs. Like the yodeling on "Wonderful", the doy-ing sounds on "Cabinessence", and the arrest bit on "Heroes and Villains". This is Brian's idea of humor.

Is Wind Chimes sung by Carl and Brian together? And is Brian double tracked on certain phrases?

I miss the piano fade also. I don't really like how the song ends abruptly, but it isn't a huge deal.

I do, though, like the added clicking percussion.

Really love the stereo mix of this. My only issue is that the second chorus comes in too early. The riff on the piano bridge only repeats six times instead of the eight originally played on "pick-up take 5" (from SOT 17).

"Subtle feel"? So that's what I didn't like about the 93 version! Smiley I very much prefer the TSS version.
