This was posted on Dave Mark's Facebook page - finally, an audience vid of Little Bird. Very nice!

Sometimes you just have to consider how lucky we are to hear some of these classics, nay underground classics live in a concert.

First off it seems like a bunch of us were at the show last night - pretty cool.  

I think David's guitar should have been louder in the mix, that might have gotten some more people into it.  I was right next to the board and overall the sound was good but could've used more lead guitar and bass.  David is not what I would call a great lead player, he's pretty sloppy and his timing isn't great, but he's a throwback as a player and does a very decent job.  Now maybe his guitar was louder elsewhere in the pavilion and it wasn't so great.  More than made up by him doing Little Bird!

Wow, Dave sounds a lot like Dennis when he sings that, it's a little eerie.  Pretty cool though.

I've never loved David's voice, but he sings that very well, it'd be great if they'd do Forever or another of Dennis's ballads with David on lead. Maybe even Slip On Through?
Here's Dave singing Forever with the Beach Boys a few years back...

I was right in front of David in the second row and l think his playing was sharp. He gets these treble tones that are cool and he plays with attitude. Technical stuff doesn't matter as much as heart, and besides that Dave knows his music. Maybe I could just hear or see what he was doing better?

Since C50 he's been billed as a "surf guitar legend"... I was expecting a little more of his playing, to be honest.

Overall, I had a fantastic time at the concert. It was exactly what I expected, setlist and all, but I was finally able to unleash my Beach Boys fandom in public and sing falsetto along to Hawaii and the like.

Also, shout out to the guy who gave me a free home brew. That was nice. Sorry I called Gettin' In Over My Head a terrible album, by the way.

fantastic performance.

One thing I do notice about Brian performances live is the lack of organs which were so key to his later sound. I can hear the organ during the 'child is father of the man' part in Little Bird, but it should be more prominent as it has a filling quality to it. Ofc I may be mistaken given that it was recorded with amateur equipment.

You'd think she would most certainly have a better seat than that.

David did introduce "Summertime Blues" as from the first album and mentioned that he and Carl played the guitars on the track...at least he did at Kettering.

Not at Ravinia; they went straight into it with no intro.

Brian, Al and David flying by private jet to the next BAD show.



Meanwhile, some where in the US, Mike and Bruce are riding a public bus to the next Beach Boys show.

What a small plane, almost looks smaller than the public bus!  Tongue

By the way, I was about five minutes away from the Ravinia today and am still kicking myself for not selling a kidney for a ticket. Oh well, hope some great video pops up soon.

On our way through this "backstage" maze, Bruce joined up with the group and said hello, singing "It Never Rains in Southern California" and joking with some of the older ladies. I'm not sure if they knew he was a Beach Boy or simply an enthusiastic elderly gay gentleman.

I have been listening to the live album, and I would like to substantiate something the Professor said a while ago: "David marks IS the reunion." His playing is amazing; what someone called sloppy is the occasional moment when he invents, playfully, new note patterns and strums that are not on  the original records; that is, he improvises in concert and plays even some of the classic riffs that he and Carl composed and performed differently. I dismiss out of hand and absurd the critique of his play and timing. I will take his invention and improvisation over hired gun reproduction of written scores.
His singing, the occasion for my comments here, is the lone authentic source of homage to his friend Dennis. Dave has, in fact, a double burden, even in many ways greater though different from Brian's: Dave has to preserve Carl's and Dennis's art musically, vocally, spiritually, in his own playing, singing and writing.

Getcha Back is a good song that has now become great in performance; it's one of the top highlights of the live album.

The Professor also wants to note that he thinks a certain critical emotional mass is forming and that a reunion of sorts, either shows or being together on an album, will happen--just a hunch.




I've never loved David's voice, but he sings that very well, it'd be great if they'd do Forever or another of Dennis's ballads with David on lead. Maybe even Slip On Through?

OP, did you get tickets for the greek? I never followed it though; did you have to buy a subscription to a certain # of shows? Has anyone else in the LA branch of SSMB got tickets?

I'l tell the professor to take a bicarbonate of soda.

I delayed a bit, but then bought the best seats I could! I can't wait! The reports are driving me mad with jealousy and I'm wondering why I didn't pretend to be visiting NJ family to go to a show or two out east.

I'm sure they will announce more fall dates shortly, they'll want to do the new material more than just once at the Greek... which really sounds like it's going to be something special.

Very nice performance from David.  And what the professor says is true, in many ways he is carrying the torch for both Dennis and Carl. He was very close to both of them, and I think he sort of wanted to be Dennis when he was young. I imagine a lot of guys wanted to be cool like that.
