I just heard this unreleased song by the BBs from the 1980's on You Tube.  It's pretty good.  Why has this never come out?

and it's basically, more or less, a re-write of Sandy/Sherry she needs me, just a different variation of the same tune with a different tempo.

Love that track.

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.

When was Tricia recorded? I've always thought that a song like that on the BB's self titled album would have improved it greatly.

Is Mike the only Beach Boy on it? I think I hear Carl in there.

If it had been released, the song credits may have been interesting as this song owes a lot to that previous (sherry..) BW track.

I'm with Jay & Smilin Ed H, Carl is definitely there. Maybe Brian too, though I can't decipher for sure if it's in fact him. The song itself is good. Except the slightly off guitar solo.

Listening to it right now for the first time.
I totally agree that it should be given an official release!

Carl is very obvious on several tracks of the original First Love mix.

Finally someone has reminded me there was a remix of the First Love album - is there any easy way to know whether a particular version is a first mix or re-mix, other than listening really hard for Carl?

Any tracks in particular that feature Carl pretty prominently?

I haven't heard this, so is Tricia the end of the Sandy - Sherry evolutionary chain?

Hey Little Tomboy is creepy. Banging women by the pool is fun and conjures up warm summer thoughts a Beach Boys song should.

No way!! It's good - but Viggie is beautiful (almost like a lost Simon & Garfunkel track) and Glow Crescent Glow is, musically at least, a masterpiece.

Little Lady or whatever it's called (the title seems to vary) is also great, and I Don't Wanna Know has a terrific fade.

First Love in general is just a great album - but of course, given all this brilliance, they picked Brian's sodding Back for MIC...  Sad

One mix of First Love (pretty sure it's the original one) has a charming version of "Viggie" with a cute ocarina hook. Carl's very prominent on "Brian's Back", of course. Almost a co-lead vocal.

Er... "Little Darlin'" is an alternate version of "Tricia". "GCG" has been released, in a re-recorded version, on an ESQ CD, The Boys of Summer from 2010.

I don't think that's anything like a sensible reason not to release the original version of GCG.

Er... I meant Lovely Leila. Which sounds nothing like Tricia.

Was it offered up for LA or was it always intended to be a solo track?

It's definitely part of it. The melody is uncanny. End of the evolutionary chain, though? Hardly, considering Brian recorded "Terri, She Needs Me" for his '88 album, and the song was finally released offiically as "She Says That She Needs Me" on Imagination. SSTSNM, really, is the end.

Thanks so much - is there any "particular" "release" [ahem] that contains the "remix" version.

I believe that there is a 2 CD "Darkside" [ahem] - which would seem to be the original.
