I really do like all of the songs on this album, but Hurry Love and The Grammy are my least favorites. I just love this album's sparse production. Someone needs to find some live tapes of Carl and his band, though - live, these songs just smoked!

ame here, I haven't given it a spin for a year or so - can we have the tally on the 19th?

At your descretion of course

The loser of this round is pretty clear so I'll tally today.

Welcome back, one and all, to the first thread of the Beach Boys Solo Survivor.

The Solo Survivors are going to tackle the main solo albums of members of the Beach Boys. This will not include solo albums released prior to membership in the Beach Boys. This will also not include works done by members who were participating in different groups (ie David Marks in The Moon or The Marksmen) nor will it include "Best Of" albums or rehash albums (ie Summertime Cruisin' by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston will not be included. This also means we will not be including Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE or I Just Wasn't Made For These Times.) Lastly, we will not be including EP's or Unreleased Albums.

Some of the Solo Survivor albums may be hard to come across. Smilers are encouraged to locate legal copies of the solo albums. I expect these rounds to go quicker with less voting than normal. No big deal.

So without further ado...

Quote
Carl Wilson is the self-titled debut album of The Beach Boys band member, Carl Wilson. The youngest of the three Wilson brothers in the band, Carl Wilson was reportedly at this time unhappy with the progress being made by The Beach Boys creatively. So Carl, just as his brother Dennis had a few years earlier, signed a contract with James William Guercio's CBS-distributed Caribou Records. The album was released on March 27, 1981 and peaked at number 185 on the Billboard 200. Of the eight tracks on the album, seven of them are written by Carl Wilson and Myrna Smith, who was the wife of Carl's then manager Jerry Schilling, with track six being written by Carl, Myrna and Michael Sun.


Welcome to The Grammy's. And the winner is.... *opens envelope*... Not you!

Per the usual, vote for your LEAST FAVORITE TRACK. The track with most votes will be voted off.

Tally on July 20th.

The Grammy Awards in 1982, I was watching that night...right.  Their ideas on great music in 1981 were Rick Springfield's "Jessie's Girl" (Rock Vocal) - yawn.
John and Yoko for Double Fantasy (Album of the Year) - wonder why that was?  Like Carl's album, half the songs are great.
And let's not forget Record and Song of the Year:  "Bette Davis Eyes" - double yawn.
To end on a positive note, Bill Withers, Ralph MacDonald and William Salter won for writing best R&B Song:  "Just the Two of Us"
Now:
"What You Gonna Do About Me?" - Carl's album got absolutely nothing.  Most voters had never heard it.  "Jessie's Girl"...really?

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

Seems So Long Ago - what a yawner and much worse than the Grammy (I know), and I was suprised to see how maligned the Grammy was to the tastes of many smilers.

Agree with the comment about these tracks need to be heard recorded live  - groovey stuff that I suspect lost a fair bit of energy in the studio for whatevs reason.
