I fully support Stephen Desper. 

We all need to step away sometimes. 

For ourselves.  And for others...

Thank you for everything, Mr. Desper.

There still seems to be a significant misunderstanding as to why the videos were taken down.

Did Mr. Desper appreciate being challenged on his thoughts about the vocals? No, probably not. But that's not the reason why he took the videos down.

He took the videos down because he was worried he would not be given permission to use the music anymore because of the controversy that he thought the videos were creating. It was not taken down simply because he was being challenged. Both sides in this argument seem to be missing that crucial point.

You know what? After re reading you’re right. I admit to my misunderstanding

While I think that Stephen may be overreacting in terms of the actual level of controversy that this matter is creating at the various locations where such things are discussed, he's perfectly within his rights and prerogatives to take these actions. No one wants to see his privileges curtailed in any way, shape or form--not one iota. I think everyone who weighed in on the matter would be horrified and saddened at such a result. So what might seem like a higher level of risk-aversion than necessary is perfectly understandable under the circumstances.

As noted, I hope this will blow over sooner than later--and most importantly, that someone with deep pockets will see fit to subsidize Stephen's ongoing effort to provide a definitive look at the Beach Boys' group efforts in 1967-71 that centered around that amazing home studio at Brian's house. The diagrams that Stephen provided and the accompanying descriptions of the creative process, along with his capsule characterizations of the creative psyches of the band, are priceless and deserve to be a prominent part of the Beach Boy historical literature. Let's all do what we "can and oughta" to make that happen.

From https://thenewperfectcollection.com/2015/08/30/the-beach-boys-sunflower-1970/

"The finale, ‘Cool Cool Water’, salvaged from the ‘Smile’ sessions is both a breeze across one’s forehead and somehow playfully buoyant, providing the perfect vehicle for showcasing the mastery of chief sound engineer, Stephen Desper, who conjures miracles from the mixing desk throughout the record."

From https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RO_LX-m74uw

"One of the better songs of the decade, and so criminally under-appreciated. This track predates dream pop, chillwave, and shoegaze by a good 15-20 years while containing elements of all three genres. Such production was unheard of in those days. Fantastic!"
