Rule of thumb, think BEFORE you post. And THINK how it may affect someone else's feelings.

Check out the Beach Boys Starline website, the place for pictures of many countries Beach Boys releases on 45.

Listening to you I get the music; Gazing at you I get the heat; Following you I climb the mountain; I get excitement at your feet
Right behind you I see the millions; On you I see the glory; From you I get opinions; From you I get the story

Seriously? Somebody voted it a zero? Hard to believe they've actually seen it and don't like it...unless they don't like the Beach Boys, in which case why are they on this site voting? Weird.

Probably just a sad troll, with too little time on his hands in between masturbation sessions.

I must say....the authors are quick to pounce on other materials for inaccuracies yet have several of their own...but overall, hard to put down. Well done!

Actually I've done many interviews lately and I've gone out of my way to praise keith badman.  As I said he was first and we built on his research. That being said the only inaccuracies i've heard about in our book are some misspelled names and saying berkeley is in san francisco but please do tell me if I have any major facts wrong. I don't think I do

By the way for those that wrote and asked me. Book will be carried by barnes and nobles.  They start selling it in stores next week. For some reason it was available on amazon earlier

Got mine over the weekend through Amazon.  Beautiflly presented, well done.  Weighs about 10 lbs., so plenty of information.  With the exception of the natural setlist mistake here or there, exceptional job.  Thanks for completing this, a great and needed addition to the BB's library.

May 27, 1989 in Costa Mesa.  The encore with Chicago kicked off with "Wishing You Were Here". Not trying to nit pick in the least, I can't begin to imagine to amount of research you had to do. I only know because I was there.  And, by the way, you got every other date/show I have ever been to  over the years correct

And there's no such place as "Chicago University."

Not an inaccuracy, but a fun fact...the Joliet, Illinois concert in 1974 was cut short because a motorcycle gang started a riot.

Not yet got the book, ordering it this weekend. Will be curious to see whether a mention is made of the impromptu gig they performed for patients whilst visiting Leeds General Infirmary in Yorkshire back in '67. And who was the delightful DJ over-seeing proceedings? Now then, now then, it was everyone's favourite television celebrity and psychopathic rapist: Sir Jimmy Savile OBE - God Bless 'im!

May 27, 1989 in Costa Mesa.  The encore with Chicago kicked off with "Wishing You Were Here". Not trying to nit pick in the least, I can't begin to imagine to amount of research you had to do. I only know because I was there.  And, by the way, you got every other date/show I have ever been to  over the years correct
I give them all the props. I guess a lot of us have seen shows or moments that only we know matter today. I mean, except for maybe the review the next day, the early boxset set I saw at the 1993 Poplar Creek Chicago area show has not been talked about since. I only wish I remembered to bring it up before the book came out to Jon or Ian directly. In 50 years of shows to get every set is impossible. Yet nothing of super import is missing-EVERY major piece of info is certainly here.

Thanks Mike.  Disney Boy-the Leeds show is mentioned but it was in 1969 (June 8 to be exact) and that is where you'll find it.  But we cover all the British tours-hopefully well

For a quick review of the book here would it be 'okay' to post a couple of photos one has taken of the content (layout, photos, etc.)? I don't mean actual scans, but rather shots like this (random example):

My vote: 5 stars here and 5 stars on amazon.

By the way, what about those 1 and 2 stars votes?  Huh Cannot be serious.

I absolutely love it!!!!

So many great pictures and such great info!

One thing I particularly love is how you can almost read the book straight through twice: once reading the narrative in the margins of the pages and then again just reading the concert descriptions! Smiley
