Hello,

Long time lurker here. I've been looking for that article for days but couldn't find it. Looks like every link is dead. Would it be possible to post the entire Fusion article. Thanks in advance!

It's supposedly in Dominic Priore's "Look, Listen, Smile, Vibrate," if you can find that book. I have a copy of LLSV, but the thing is so disorganized, I can't figure what's what, at least on short notice.  I also don't have a scanner. But if someone else has it, yeah, post it. So at least I can figure out where it is in that book.

 It's NOT in LLVS.  After I lost the eBay auction for it the winner was kind enough to scan the article for me and I shared it here.  Unfortunately it's not in my computer anymore (that one died) but I'm sure someone here can post it or find it in the archives.

Thanks for that. I thought it was in the Priore book. I recently dug out my BB books and forgot how haphazard that collection of articles in that book is. I could have sworn I had seen that Fusion article in some book collection or other, but perhaps I had only seen it posted online.

Thanks Mike, it is so appreciated!

I think it is one of the most interesting piece on SMiLE along with Siegel article and Anderle's interview.

It is a bit frustrating though... He was so close telling us, two years after the fact, the original vision of SMiLE. I am sure he would have been able to identify the original concept of The Elements. He confirms in the article the two-parts Heroes and Villains, The Barnyard Suite... Wow!!!

Andrew, you told us about the article that what is most interesting is what he didn't tell. Could you please elaborate on this.

Best Regards,

JF

I thought that the folks here might like to know that the Michael Vosse Fusion piece has just been republished in full in the latest issue of Flashback magazine, together with an introduction from Domenic Priore, and additional photos. This issue also includes a huge (30 pages!) retrospective by Vashti Bunyan, and a 20-page feature on brilliant west-coast psych-sters Euphoria. Essential reading. Buy it here: http://flashbackmag.com/

The article is important on any number of levels, but speaking personally, for what it doesn't say, and because it formed the backbone of the Smile section of Nick Kent's 1975 NME tryptich. Or if you're in a less charitable frame of mind, he lifted it uncredited.

There were certain tracks and incidents that you'd expect Vosse, as a member of the inner circle, to mention, or at least allude to - but he doesn't.

Couldn't that be applied to most if not all articles and interviews, though? Like Jules' "Goodbye Surfing...", he's on at least one very familiar piece of extended Smile audio that he doesn't even mention but it would have been great to hear him tell his side of what they were doing on the "lifeboat" to cause what everyone hears as a very tense atmosphere (who knows if it was all a put on), and likewise he's prominently featured in the GV firehouse promo, yet doesn't mention a word about that either - Granted, they're not exactly blockbuster events on the surface but the insight could have been revelatory had he written about it. Same with David Anderle in the 3-part interview with Williams.

It's just that I've seen the issue of what Vosse didn't say in Fusion raised before, and I don't know how a similar standard wouldn't be applied to each and every article written in the same mold. What he does say is as close to the events as one could possibly get, and only a year or so removed from the actual events which is why I weigh that article in particular very heavily as firsthand "evidence".

I know this thread has been dead and buried for.. 7 years.. but could anyone kindly re-post / or PM the scans from the article mentioned above? I'm reading through a chain of threads that lead to this one and have hit a brick wall with those image links being dead. 

Thanks!

Sure thing! Happy to share this with interested fans...and after reading this, consider how many failed efforts were made to dismiss both Michael Vosse and his article because it went against certain narratives...because Vosse speaks the truth.

Enjoy!

Good to see this linked here. The blogger has since moved on to other topics but produced some wondrous SMiLE posts over the years that are well worth investigating.

Because a good number of people have already made up their minds what they want the album/project to be, like BWPS-sequence or Dominic Priore's sequence or whatever, and they don't want to acknowledge that it most likely would've been very different from their theories. Ultimately, it's all good either way how someone likes to listen to the music but I do feel like some fans (perhaps myself chief among them) like to color or disregard the primary sources that don't fit their narrative. But the past few years have shown us that this seems to be human nature on all subjects, so I've just learned to embrace it as part of the SMiLE mythos.

(Sorry for the pop-in but I saw my site getting some traffic from this URL and I wanted to know why. Genuinely hope y'all are well. Back to the fortress of solitude  Cool Guy )

In that article Vosse talks about the Capitol lawsuit being settled out of court by Christmas 1966. But I thought the lawsuit was settled over the summer of 1967?
