"...some pundits are already predicting it could be his next masterpiece.  Wilson said he wrote the songs and then found the artists that could perform them best.  'We lined up a few guest artists,' he said. 'We looked them up and checked them out and they checked out good.'...He considered using a recording he and Beck did of the Irish ballad, 'Danny Boy,' but, 'We didn't put it in the album. It just didn't fit the album very well.' Asked when the other material he recorded with Beck will be released, he said, 'Not soon.'"

This part brings out the cynic in me. 

Didn't Brian specifically want to work with Beck?  Now apparently all of that work has gone out the window.

Be thankful that Brian is being picky about what is going on this album....it says volumes about how much he cares about this project. 

You are assuming that Brian made the final decisions. That hasn't always been the case....for a long time actually.

I wonder if Ray Lawlor has seen the movie, what his thoughts are.

True...unless maybe Captitol didn't want to put in on the record, but that's clearly not the reason. It comes down to Brian.

Just because the songs they did together aren't coming out now doesn't mean they won't *ever* be released. My guess is Brian decided they weren't a good fit for his and is either saving them for later, or has just set them aside without much thought into the future. The point is, its Brian's decision.

That's too bad, their version of "Danny Boy" was beautiful (I have not heard the recording, but did see when they did the tune on Jimmy Fallon's show).  Maybe it will turn up as a bonus track somewhere.

Beck said Danny Boy WILL be on the record.

Indeed, I was impressed by that Fallon performance. Sadly, Beck said that none of the material they worked on was completed. They spent time in the studio, but went on tour before anything was finished. So I'm doubtful at we'll hear anything from these sessions. I would love to be proved wrong though!

If it's anything like the Fallon performance, I hope Danny Boy ISN'T on the record. I guess it sounded okay, but Brian wasn't even audible, and it's supposed to be his performance. No thank you. If I wanted to not hear Brian, I wouldn't be listening to Brian.

I agree. Danny Boy sounded nothing like Brian Wilson and I feel that there's artists that mesh better with Brian than Jeff Beck. When I heard about a possible Brian/Beck album, I wasn't exactly thrilled. However, Jeff Beck is an excellent guitarist but it just doesn't work for some reason on a BW record.

Agreed. I posted the below comment after watching it.

This is a pleasant and inoffensive performance. It would have sounded pretty much identical if Brian, Al and David had stayed at home though.

Give me a new Brian Wilson original over this any day of the week.

Didn't Brian specifically want to work with Beck?  Now apparently all of that work has gone out the window.  Meanwhile, "we" decided that a trio of hot young chicks "checked out good" and will appear on the album...at least two of whom Brian had probably never previously heard of. 
 


Don't be cynical.  Smiley

Given it was written (I'm pretty sure) by the guy who's collaborating with Brian on AutoBio2, a degree of cynicism is justified, I feel. Tagging anything as a potential "masterpiece" is, also, just begging for grief. It could well be - I hope it is - but I seriously doubt those pundits have heard one note of it.

Re case of "lesser known" vs. "Top 40 hits", I'm siding with startbbtoday. All his points sound logical.

Sheesh, you Kokomaoists are so damned sensitive. That little jab was mild compared to what Mike was getting during the 1980's and 90's.

I wouldn't classify myself as a "Kokomaoist," just making a general observation!  I lean more toward the old school Brianista camp.

I think the text came from the recent Desert Sun article, which is mostly just parroting the Jason Fine press-statements-dressed-up-as-journalism anyway.

https://ca.news.yahoo.com/stephen-hawking-brian-wilson-among-subjects-toronto-film-130008643.html

"Love & Mercy": Brian Wilson, the troubled mastermind behind '60s American pop titans the Beach Boys, is portrayed by John Cusack and Paul Dano in his older and younger years in this feature from Bill Pohlad, the decorated producer behind "12 Years a Slave" and "Brokeback Mountain" who last directed a film in 1990. Paul Giamatti and Elizabeth Banks round out a talented cast, and God only knows there's fertile dramatic material here: Wilson struggled with serious mental health issues even as he pushed the Beach Boys to impossible creative highs.

Love & Mercy (CAA/Lionsgate)

Director: Bill Pohlad

Stars: John Cusack, Paul Dano, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Giamatti

Buzz: This biopic about Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame is the directorial debut of the respected financier-producer, whose credits include 12 Years a Slave. Dano's performance as a young version of the singer is said to be impressive.

"So maybe Beach Boys fans are stupid and we can dismiss the whole thing. But maybe that's a pretty snotty attitude to take; maybe something is happening here that we just ought to know about" -Paul Williams

"Brian is an enigma, a leprechaun," said rhythm guitarist Al Jardine.
