- Wonderful was always tricky to get a true stereo mix, because the best existing versions were all in mono, and there's nothing really to build a good stereo mix without extracting elements, which is line I will not cross.  So I tried to do the forbidden trick of making I suppose what we'd call a "fake stereo" or "duphonic" mix...  It's the TSS version, with slight roomy reverb, with the reverb top the left having a high-pass filter and the reverb to the right having a low-pass filter, which gives us the impression that the bass is panned to the left, and the harpsichord is panned to the right.  Then, of course the isolated backing vocals are synched up to the song, which are in stereo.  Listen to it and let me know if it's terrible or not.  :/ 

Wouldn't this be the most duophonicy and therefore most "authentic" mix?

Haha yeah I kept thinking that and was actually embarassed about it, but I thought the end result was pretty good so let it right.

But TECHNICALLY we have the isolated stereo backing vocals synched up to that duophonic backing track, so it actually is in stereo!   3D

SonicLoveNoize, if you don't mind, after this finishes I'll make torrents out of this and the BWPS Stereo version, because if enough people seeded it could be a lot faster than MediaFire. I'll credit you of course.

Unless you have an objection.

Oh yeah, that's perfectly alright with me!   Afro

Here's the flacs for both the mono and stereo '67 mixes...

Ok, made a few changes to be more "torrent friendly"

Copied the .doc files and made them plain text, formatted them a bit to look better.

Collapsed the '67 mix, Stereo and Mono, into one folder with two subfolders (might do a two-sides thingy for the mono)

Making .cue files

Rehashing the md5 to match what's there now.

Is that OK with you?

Here you can download the .torrent files for the '67 mix and BWPS. Currently I'm the only seeder, might be a bit slow. Once it downloads, KEEP YOUR CLIENT OPEN!

The more seeders, the faster it will download.

Thank you guys for the compliments!  :D

Yeah, that looks good Cactus.  I'm seeding now too.

I think it would live longer if someone uploaded it to demonoid...  I rarely ever use my account so I don't recall the specific uploading protocol, but I can seed it there too.

I'll do it.

EDIT: Yeah, no. You need to add a "tracked by demonoid" file and I don't want to reseed a new torrent.

If you have any other suggestions let me know.

SonicLoveNoize I was just wondering. Since you have such strong ability in your handling of Smile material would it ever be possible for you to do a cleaned up version of A/C?

Maybe my question is redundant given that we kinda expect some of that material to show up on the 50th anniversary box  Grin

Still enjoy this mix. I don't use your files anymore though, got a vinyl transfer of most of the songs you used and I mocked your edits and used your track listing (though I put "Wonderful" where you had it previously). It's too bad all the SMiLE fan mixing has slowed down though, there were some pretty cool things being thrown out there.

Wow, sure has been a long while, hasn't it? 

Recently a number of people have been hounding me about updating my SMiLE mix, the last one being five years ago.  So I finally did:
https://albumsthatneverwere.blogspot.com/2018/12/the-beach-boys-smile-upgrade.html

This time I've made it a three-disc set...

Disc 1 is my reconstruction proper-  SMiLE '67, which attempt to reconstruct the album as it could have been in 1967.  Included is both mono and stereo versions.  Notable updates include:
- Child following BW's 3-minute edit
- remix of Cabin Essence and OMP
- completely new edit of The Elements, meant as it's own self-contained suite, which does not need to "borrow" element from "Wind Chimes" or "Vege-Tables", etc.

Disc 2 contains an update of my stereo SMiLE reconstruction that follows the 2004 BWPS tracklist as close as possible.  As a bonus, it also has my remaster of a reconstruction of BW's 1966 December Comp Reel, and also his April Assembly of "Vege-Tables" tagged on the end.  I felt cleaned up versions of these were a historical necessity, not found on recent official releases (Brian's three--minute Child edit was supposed to be included, but I had to scrap it because of Wake The World lol). 

Disc 3 is called Behind The SMiLE, and is meant as an audio documentary for the making of the album.  Ive made an hour of custom edits and reconstructions, alternate versions, etc.  My favorites include three completely different alternate versions of "Good Vibrations", each using different modulations, which represents the progress of the song over time (which includes a new sync of the vocal and backing track of the March/Pet Sounds version).  I've also done that for "Heroes and Villains", making four different versions, each representing how the song sounded in November, January, late February and March.  Also has what I call a "chronological reconstruction", which assembles the segments in chronological order, so within the span of one listen, you can hear BW's thought process of how the song should go. 

Enjoy!

Thank you, soniclovenoize. You rock to the uttermost. I definitely use your stuff in my own mixes -- especially when I cannot find stereo mixes on official release (and I have bought them all. At least once.)
