I've just had a pretty tiring journey and need some sleep as tomorrow could be a most interesting day.


Really....New album news, expanded tour, re-release news?

Or just a big day in front of the telly? Grin

Andrew is going to reveal himself to the world as Supereme Overlord Of The Known And Unknown Universes, just look at his avatar! Unfortunately, due to it being April Fools day no-one will take Andrews proclamation seriously.

The Netherlands release of "Live in London"(the import that Americans encountered) had to be released 1972 or later, because, inside the gatefold sleeve, there were advertisements for other Bovema/EMI Beach Boys albums, including "Surf's Up"

In The Netherlands Live In London was originally released in March 1971. According to Dutch reviews I've read, probably either in the week of March 22-28th, or a week earlier (15-21st).
I have at least 4 different different pressings, one of them being a copy with a fold-out front, showing part of the Pet Sounds Cover, and with ads for (a.o.) the Surf's Up album. But that probably is a later pressing, which is apparently the one you also have, Phil.



Yes, the pressing that I have is the one with the fold-out front.

Here are the ones I have.  Back in the mid 70's, the first two were fairly difficult to find new in record stores.

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 she’s like, and I can feel how right she’d be for me. It’s weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what she’s picking up from me. I hope it’s good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

the second one (with the Pet Sounds pic) is available in 2 variations: one as a fold out (the 1970 pic being the part that folds out) and one with a standard cover (same layout, but in one piece).  (EDIT: must admit that I can't find the standard cover right away in my collection, but I'm sure it exists)

Live In London can be found in many variations. Unique covers from the UK, Germany, Australia, and South Africa.

Can't remember if I've ever seen one without the gatefold sleeve (w/Pet Sounds). Just remember I couldn't find ANY copy of Live In London in the Bay Area and ended up finding one at Peaches Records in Los Angeles. That's all they had was ONE. And this was around '74 or '75, not that long after the release!

Hmmm....It was posted early morning Uk time yet it is 'late here'.

He's a party animal and just got home.
or
He's visiting Phil (where ever he is) to 'discuss a few matters!'
or
He's in LA. Liner notes for re-releases or such? Taking over falsetto from Jeff and Matt?



Funny sort of comment IMO. And thats from a guy who has said a few! LOL

If there's not a "Cohen of Silence", then there's definitely a Cohenspiracy here.

Ok let's break the silence

Yesterday, the ninth of april I heard an alt mix of Surfin' Safari on the Dutch radio 1.

listen here: http://nos.nl/radiouitzending/9579-met-het-oog-op-morgen-2300-uur.html

42:42 to 45:38 = almost 3 minutes long!

Alt mix means including overdubbed new instruments.
Now my question is: Has anybody heard this, is this a remix by an outsider, or is this an official part of a forthcoming 'commemorative release'?

I think that's definitely an outside job. None of those overdubs sound like real instruments, it's like a karaoke backing track. Horrible, just horrible. What do the presenters say just before they play the track?

Oh right thanks for that! Weird that they would play that instead of the original though! Probably just a mistake by somebody at the station I guess.

I don't know... it's not a station that would play very obscure mixes, and...

maybe this was done around the time of that other overdub session: the 'new' Do It Again.

I wouldn't be surprised if that piano was played by Scott Bennett. That glissando on the keys is his style.

Sounds like they took the vocal from an early take of the song and added modern music to make it sound decent.

I can't imagine that remix being on the new cd,let's be honest if they do a remix it will end up being something with a dance beat,rap/techno,this sounds like a fan mix and sounds real cheesy..

The fact that the song is extended via a bad edit back to the second chorus (the rest just repeats) demonstrates how amateurish this track is. Perhaps a test edit for a Beach Boys Rock Band game?  Razz

Although I frequently checked for Beach Boys product at record stores in the early 70s, i was unaware of the existence of Live in London until sometime in 1972 when a friend bought a copy of the Netherlands pressing at an independent record store.  I rushed over to the store to get a copy as well, but they said they had no more.  They told me they would attempt to get one for me, but both they and the other record stores I contacted were unable to do.  It would be around a year or two later when I finally procured my own copy, which was of the UK pressing. 

I do recall that there was a period of time when the major US record companies discouraged record stores from carrying imports, I think by claiming that the US companies alone had the rights to distribute products in the US by artists who were under contract to those companies.

Nah, just pointing out that anyone who seriously thinks that pile of sh*t would be on an official 50th anniversary release either needs hearing aids or shouldn't be out in the community without a minder.

I've heard it before somewhere a few years ago.

Just spotted that a download-only remastered version of the Surfin' Safari album is scheduled to become available at Amazon Uk on April 19. Don't think this is legit in the usual way and wonder if it's down to a copyright expiry? Is Capitol in danger of dropping a ball? (I somehow doubt it...)

No bonus tracks

Hmm that looks very bootleg-esque.

But anyways, since there hasn't been much in the way of news lately, what does everybody think we will get as far as the "commemorative releases" besides the box set. I would love for another compilation like Endless Harmony to come out with a bunch of totally previously unreleased songs, but I somewhat get the feeling that they will probably just use the best unreleased material that is still in the can on the box set.

I also think there is the possibility that maybe we get new special editions of certain albums, most likely Sunflower and Surf's Up, as I'm pretty sure it was mentioned in a Linnett/Boyd interview as a possibility. And if they had to choose albums to do two-disc special editions, those are likely the ones I would pick, as there is supposedly some prime material to choose from, with things like "I'm Going Your Way" and "Where Is She" from Sunflower and stuff like "(Wouldn't It Be Nice To) Live Again" and probably some other cool stuff for Surf's Up.

Therefore, I gotta say that either a rarities compilation or deluxe editions of a few classic albums is within reason.

Then less realistically, I kinda was hoping that they would reissue the groups entire discography on standalone CDs. However as over a quarter of the year has gone by since the announcement, I just kinda get the feeling that they won't do that, especially as non "hits" albums by The Beach Boys besides Pet Sounds and SMiLE probably won't shift that many copies, especially compared to other Capitol/EMI artists like The Beatles and Pink Floyd. However, if they actually did re-release all the albums on their own with bonus tracks, that would probably be the best thing we could wish for. I doubt it though.

It's fun to dream at least. Hopefully we'll hear some news on the tracklist and title of the new studio album soon, and also some updates on the catalog releases, so we will be able to more realistically assess what might be coming our way.
