Hey folks.  I'm a newb (as you can see) but I used to post at thesmileshop boards nearly ten years ago (it was pre-BWPS).  I came to share this with you, hopefully I'm not breaking any rules and this is on the right board...  I was the one who made the SMiLE Authetic Mix if anyone's listened to that one... 

After 4 grueling days, I painstakingly made a complete stereo SMiLE reconstruction (almost) exclusively using bits and pieces of the SMiLE Sessions boxset.  The soundquality is pretty great (since it's from these new sources) and I attempted to stick to a track sequence much like the premise of my Authentic construction (that is, reconstructing how SMiLE would have theoretically been in 1967, not 2004 or 20011).  And it's ALL IN STEREO which is great to hear, especially on Do You Like Worms or Good Vibrations (which I used the original telepathy verse-lyrics!). 

So anyways, here it is...

320kps mp3s:

Flacs:
Side A: http://www.mediafire.com/?6whwgib17b2ocuw
Side B: http://www.mediafire.com/?1ff6ngdu1gpzlr4

*includes artwork, md5 file and track notes. 

Thanks for listening, hope you enjoy!  Smiley

"It leads into the assembled stereo backing tracks from the SMiLE Sessions box, but instead of using the uninventive vocals from the mono mix, excerpts from the Underwater Chant are interjected into the pauses."

Or you couldn't extract the vocal = )

Some are.  I just posted in the other thread how I did it...  If it wasn't in the backing vocal montage or another track, then it's the stereo mix synched up to the mono mix, with the mono mixed slightly back.  It actually worked pretty well I think!  Smiley

Hey, sup Beck-reference!  I've seen you before!  Wink 

I tried synching it up with the mono to do just that, but honestly, it didn't seem really worth it just for a "waub waub ooo waub".  So I thought I'd go in a totally different direction, using these new bits we have, you know?

I was just playin' = ) I was going to work on a stereo "Da Da" until realizing the vocal track or any stereo mix with the vocal track didn't exist in any decent quality. Then I gave up on life. Sad

    I like what you did with Good Vibrations, and there's some interesting stuff in the other tracks - Da Da and Worms had some pleasant surprises.

    But ignoring the now-familiar sequencing of the 2004 and 2011 versions for a more authentic 1967 edit, although interesting, isn't what I personally want to listen to as a definitive version.

    So can you also just do an edit in 2004 or 2011 track order, that doesn't deviate much from the 2011 edits?

    Just for the reason that having a good stereo version of the 2011 album is something I think people want anyway, and if you've already done most of the work, then, well ...



   With the newer versions so familiar, Heroes and Villains feels like an experiment rather than a definitive version of the track. And there are lots of things included which to me are just backing vocals and extra tracks and bits that would never have been prominent in a real album mix [long Workshop, chanting and noises, Heroes and Villains pt 2] ... and where is Gee?

    Also, I'm In Great Shape in stereo gives me a headache sadly. Maybe if the piano can be removed.

If you want a good stereo mix of the 2011 version, check out my mix (which I will post in a few minutes).

Thank you guys for your kind words!  Smiley

haha Yeah, I didn't get much at all, 6 hours each.  I was pretty braindead.  Razz  I'm catching up now...

Yeah, I know what you're saying, and it would be an interesting challenge, but to me, this is what the sequence should be, but that's a whole 'nother debate, you know?  Wink

But you are right: just replace my H&V 1&2 with the stereo mix of H&V on the boxset; add Holiday; move Surf's Up up and Good Vibrations down.  The only problem is Barnyard, both he backing track and the vocal/demo are in mono on the boxset.  So you could not make a stereo mix of Barnyard, without getting REALLY creative  :/

Otherwise, Barnshine looks like he's doing one, just listen to his!  Smiley  You guys can feel free to use my edits to do just that, just credit me somewhere...

I guess it's the case of working with what we have, because the alternative is to fly things in from BWPS, like Purplechick did, and to me that is heresy.

It's in H&V pt2!

haha I'd say the EQ on that whole piano/demo session was a bit annoying!  :D

Thank you so much for sharing your hard work! Grin  I already started messing around with my own stereo version, but I guess I don't need to now.

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears, and she's already working on my brain. I only looked in her eyes, but I picked up something I just can't explain. I, I bet I know what shes like, and I can feel how right shed be for me. Its weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what shes picking up from me. I hope its good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

I didn't like it either. However, I did love what you did to I Love To Say Da Da, so much so that I had to sign up on the board to thank you for it. Very enjoyable.

Yeah, GV didn't work for me either, but I loved everything else, even the sequencing. I didn't think I would like it looking at the track list, but what a great listen. Thanks for taking the time to create it. Well done! Smiley

Nothing! Not even anything that Brian himself didn't try back in 2004. I'm not a fan of mixing the versions like that. I would have liked a stereo version of the original version or even the new hum-dee-dum version. Sonic... did a great job overall.

Thanks for your stereo mix soniclovenoize!

It would be nice if we could make a compilation including all the Good Vibrations stereo experiments/mixes we found over the years. Here are some Youtube links:
