An Amazon listing popped up for a “Brian Wilson and Friends” Blu-ray release due July 29. For those keeping score, this is the third home video release of the PBS special and its second Blu-ray release.

Still no US release for the CD version of the show.  Looks like I'll be getting the import.

I've been enjoying the Blu-ray for some time, so I'm glad to see it's going to get a widespread release. This thing looks and sounds so much better in HD.

This show is certainly seeing a weird release pattern/strategy:

1. Blu-ray/DVD combo sold exclusively though Chicago PBS station website (mainly a US release, though they apparently were willing to ship internationally). This apparently can't be purchased on its own anymore, though there may still be a set up to get it via pledge to PBS.

2. DVD/CD combo released in the UK, CD includes a couple extra songs, distributed by Salvo. *No* Blu-ray option, DVD may be Region 2-locked.

3. Blu-ray standalone release in the US, I would guess identical in content to the original Blu-ray.

So the DVD and CD are *not* available in the US (the set can obviously be imported, though the DVD *may* not be playable due to PAL and/or region-locking), and the Blu-ray is *not* available outside of the US. Weird.

Ideally, they'd release this worldwide in multiple configurations: Blu-ray, DVD, and CD standalone releases, and then a DVD/CD and Blu-ray/CD combo.

There is going to be a CD released in July as well, according to Amazon. Looks like it comes in a package with a DVD. Here’s the track list; Amazon doesn’t say if it’s for the CD or DVD at this time:

  1. Our Prayer
  2. Heroes and Villains
  3. Sloop John B
  4. Dance Dance Dance
  5. Good Vibrations
  6. This Beautiful Day
  7. Runaway Dancer
  8. Don't Worry Baby
  9. Marcella
  10. Wild Honey
  11. Sail On Sailor
  12. Sail Away
  13. Half Moon Bay
  14. Don't Talk
  15. Saturday Night
  16. Hold On Dear Brother
  17. Darlin'
  18. On The Island
  19. God Only Knows
  20. The Right Time
  21. Wouldn't It Be Nice
  22. Help Me Rhonda
  23. All Summer Long
  24. Fun Fun Fun

Edit: Removed some undue speculation.

There is going to be a CD released in July as well, according to Amazon. Looks like it comes in a package with a DVD. The track list is interesting; I'm assuming it’s for the CD, but could be for the DVD. Interesting either way:

  1. Our Prayer
  2. Heroes and Villains
  3. Sloop John B
  4. Dance Dance Dance
  5. Good Vibrations
  6. This Beautiful Day
  7. Runaway Dancer
  8. Don't Worry Baby
  9. Marcella
  10. Wild Honey
  11. Sail On Sailor
  12. Sail Away
  13. Half Moon Bay
  14. Don't Talk
  15. Saturday Night
  16. Hold On Dear Brother
  17. Darlin'
  18. On The Island
  19. God Only Knows

  20. The Right Time
  21. Wouldn't It Be Nice
  22. Help Me Rhonda
  23. All Summer Long
  24. Fun Fun Fun

Yellow meaning not on the UK CD release from earlier this year. “California Girls” and “California Saga” were on the UK release but not on this one.

My guess is that the above tracklisting is for the DVD, not the CD.

I would tend to doubt there will be an content differences between the UK and US "combo" sets. Also, I don't think the CD would include the two studio tracks with Zooey Deschanel.

I'm thinking the DVD/CD combo pack listing simply only has the DVD tracklisting shown right now (it even lists it as a 2-disc set but only has that 24-track listing under "Disc 1" with no "Disc 2" listing). It looks like they're simply putting the identical DVD/CD set out in the US as they did in the UK, simply possibly through a different distributor.

Then, separately, the US appears to also be getting a standalone Blu-ray release (whether the UK also gets a Blu-ray release, we of course don't know).

Is this an imported copy on the Salvo label? I know some US retailers have been importing the UK version. I also had the impression the UK DVD was PAL instead of NTSC.

I'm not sure, but the US release may be on a different label/distributor. It appears the Blu-ray release is unique and new.

But content-wise, it appears the upcoming US release is identical to the UK release.

Review: Brian Wilson's New Album Shows He's 'Still Riding a Peak'

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

It's a great (!) set, although it's a bit of a letdown that some of the clear highlights didn't make the CD version. Undecided Sebu's impressive "Don't Worry Baby" and Ruess's stellar "Hold On Dear Brother" are tracks whose absence hurt the most.

I still dug the overall set. I for one like most of the NPP songs, including "Runaway Dancer", and treasure artists like Sebu and Nate Ruess as interpreters of BW music.


Overall ranking - CD+DVD - 7/10.

Everything I'm reading has to do with the DVD version (despite the Blu-Ray version mentioned in the subject line of this thread). What's up with that? It's 2016....I'm done buying DVDs. Aside from the original post, I'm not seeing the Blu-Ray version. Huh

Not sure there's a Bluray readily available in Germany. I only saw the DVD/CD set in stores..
