Just figured he'd push for his work to be included.  Not a big deal.  Royalties.

Is "Won't You Tell Me" really a Beach Boys recording?  I think it's from 1969.  
Sometimes with the quality of boots, you never know.

There's also the 1976 version of "Sherry She Needs Me."

Man, they can do 6 discs of just rarities.  But they won't.

Won't You Tell Me was a Murry Wilson song I think. Little chance of it being included.

I understand what you mean about Mike but I think the image of him scheming ways to include his songs (and omit Dennis's) is a myth. All of the rarities albums that have been released have included a lot of Dennis's stuff and very little of Mike's.

I would have thought the new box would include songs like Hawaii, Let Him Run Wild, Kiss Me Baby, All I Wanna Do, Big Sur (early version), It's A Beautiful Day, Somewhere Near Japan etc. and a lot more that weren't on the 1993 box. If you add on all of the classic songs that Mike has a writing credit for then I don't think he is going to have much cause for concern.

Ricky Fataar is still playing with Bonnie Raitt's band, which he has been doing for a very long time.  The band is phenomenal...Mike Finnigan on keys and Bonnie on Guitar....killer band. Watch their Austin City Limits set if you can find it.

Will look, I was half scared someone would say 'he's DEAD' which would slow my roll somewhat. Thanks!

...songs that were a treasure trove of recordings from the KTSA sessions/era.

The only unreleased KTSA/1979 tracks I remember from Alan's house were "Why Didn't I Tell You?," and "Little Girl (Sunshine)," which had a note: "rough mix with scratch vocal."

I have heard that the Ed Carter song, "Surfer Suzie" is really good.  I have never heard it, but AGD's website shows it with a lead by Al.

Won't You Tell Me is a Murry song but Brian and Carl sing it well. It's from 1971.

If we haven't already, we should do a thread on the top 5-10 things we would want in this box if we were the ones putting it together.

I agree with the other poster who said he may be more excited about the tracklisting for this than the SMiLE Sessions.. because here
we just have no idea what we're going to get.

I said that. It is incredibly exciting.

Only three things in life are certain, death, taxes and my excitement for Made In California.

Far more interesting: Unreleased songs which stand a chance of appearing on the box, but which you'd rather remained in the vaults... And lets just stick to songs that might realistically make the cut (so, you know, not the alternate Hey Little Tomboy).

For me it's 'Everybody's Got To Live', which i know some people love, but which i really can't stand. Why? Well, the song itself is pretty lame, and Carl's vocal is horrible, but it's the lyrics that really get to me:
 
'The cigarette butt when you throw it in the water go pssstt!'

Yeah, ok, so a pretty wacky opening line. Maybe it's going to be one of Brian's Love You-style quirky lyrics, wherein it should be bad but yet somehow it's great.

But then... 'But the trick is you shouldn't laugh'.

Laugh? Why would i laugh at a cigarette butt going pssstt?

'Coz if you start laughing you're just a coward. If you start laughing you're just a coward'.

I mean... what? Why is it cowardly to laugh - or rather, why is cowardly to laugh at a cigarette butt going pssstt?

As i say, i usually love Brian's goofy lyrics (I could happily spent an entire evening listening to Solar System - in fact, i just might) but the lyrics to EGTL aren't goofy or fun - they're just nonsense. Psychotherapy codswollap. Crap, basically. I know the song isn't credited to Landy, but to me these lyrics have his influence all over them.

So yeah. I hope Everybody's Got To Live ain't on MIC. Any other suggestions?

Hopefully not. But there are those of us, myself included, who hope that one day, somehow, everything will be available.

A part of me is like burn it with fire.

But then another part of me is saying if Mike enjoys singing songs like that then more power to him.

Here's another song which I would think realistically has a chance to make it: "Living Doll" which was released in 1987, and credited to The Beach Boys, although only Brian appears on it. And it's cowritten by Gene Landy and Alexandra Morgan. Yeahhhh.

However, it is an official release credited to The Beach Boys. And if they are considering some of the other '80s crap, I assume this deserves a thought as well.

I'd never heard of that one before and after a quick trip to youtube I wish I never had.

It is possible but I personally think it is worse than most of the, 'other '80s crap' as you put it. Poor production, vocals and lyrics.

Certainly weaker than Getcha Back, Where I Belong, Rock and Roll to the Rescue, California Dreaming, Kokomo, Somewhere Near Japan etc.

Nah, Sweet Insanity's a fine album, taken in context. I like all three versions I have…
