Who can forget his love of the cantina verse and Our Prayer? Mike Love was always such a staunch advocate of SMiLE music and it's good to see him so proud of Brian's legacy.
Last time I looked at the cover of Smile it had the artist as The Beach Boys. Mike has also never knocked the music, just some of Van Dyke's lyrics. Brian will be remembered just as much for I Get Around and California Girls as for Smile.  

Not the impression I have got over many years of reading various articles. Like this one: http://somethingelsereviews.com/2014/05/22/such-weirdness-going-on-mike-love-still-doesnt-get-the-beach-boys-smile/

In Mike's own words:

“I have mixed feelings about it,” Love tells the Austin Chronicle. “I think there was some great music on SMiLE, some incredible tracks. But at that point in time, there were so many drugs being taken by Brian and other members of the group, and there was a lot of collaborating with people other than myself. I had literally nothing to do on anything on the SMiLE album, so naturally I was a little upset.”

And:

“There was such weirdness going on at the time. I’m not trying to poo-poo it, but it was just a little too weird for my taste. Then Brian shelved the album, and whenever you have an unfinished symphony it takes on mythological proportions. I do think there’s some beautiful tracks, like ‘Wonderful’ and ‘Heroes and Villains,’ but there’s a negative side to it too.”

These comments seem to indicate two separate problems for Mike (apart from VDP's 'acid alliteration'): it's weirdness and the fact that he wasn't involved enough with it.

I think it's fair to say he didn't enthusiastically introduce Surf's Up last night, and, like I said earlier, even checked with Jeff that it was actually from Smile. But they played it, so that's good enough for me.

Mmmmmm… suspect that might have been a joke. It was the 71 arrangement by and large, anyway.

Of course Mike also sued Brian over SMiLE (despite having admitted "I had literally nothing to do on anything on the SMiLE album" as detailed in my above post): 'accusing Wilson of promoting his 2004 album, "Smile," in a manner that "shamelessly misappropriated Mike Love's songs, likeness and the Beach Boys trademark, as well as the 'Smile' album itself."'

https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/60785/mike-love-sues-brian-wilson-over-smile

"Beach Boys lawsuit dismissed
May 16, 2007, Randy Lewis

"A U.S. District Court judge in Los Angeles has dismissed Beach Boys co-founder Mike Love’s 2005 lawsuit against his cousin and former band mate Brian Wilson.

"Love argued in the lawsuit that he and the group had been harmed financially by the 2004 distribution in the United Kingdom of a free CD featuring Beach Boys songs rerecorded by Wilson in conjunction with the release of Wilson’s “Smile” album. The suit claimed that the free CD also hurt potential sales of future Beach Boys releases.

"In a decision entered Thursday, Judge Audrey Collins wrote that “the Court finds that there are no triable issues of material fact.”   https://arkhonia.wordpress.com/2011/11/01/smile-–-my-first-25-years-unleash-the-love-1967-2011/

 LOL

I just knew that when I read a 5 star review in the press, saw glowing comments on other boards and read on Twitter about people being so moved by Pisces Brothers that tears were shed I only needed to come here to get an accurate view of things.

How cheeky.

That must have been weird to hear...one of the best songs of all time followed by Pisces Brothers, followed by one of the best songs of all time. Does it make Pisces Brothers worse, or does it help ignore it's badness by sandwiching it like that?

Well I suppose it is a matter of personal taste but I've seen it many times and people are moved. It is also the whole dynamic of our beloved and lost music artists, and the fragility of life. 

Have you seen it performed live?

Yes. Last year. And no, I wasn't moved.

Yes. Last year. And no, I wasn't moved. I found the melody repetitive. The lyrics didn't scan well (birth - day for example).  It seems like an attempt to claim a connection to someone with whom Mike seems to have little in common. I didn't notice an emotional reaction from most of the audience in fact. It didn't get wild applause.

How lovely that when M&B peform a stunning set, which included a song that people on this board have been whining about for years, some posters are reminding us of a lawsuit from 10 years ago and how Mike could have been more supportive of Brian in 1966.

Next time Mike refers to Brian's drug taking (that happened decades ago) perhaps you would like to criticise him too.

Sorry to highjack the thread for a minute, but I have an extra ticket for the Sunday May 31st London show for sale.
Fantastic seat in the Arena, block A (by the stage), row 7.  Good price for a real fan.

Use your chance and come to see an historical show!

The reason for my posts was the assertion that Mike had  always been positive about SMiLE. I wasn't the only person to have commented on this. I had heard that Mike wouldn't allow this song during C50 so it seems rather odd for him to be including it in the new tour.

Well, Ang, you'd be among the minority who hasn't been moved, and I've seen it a couple of dozen times.  It gets very respectfully enthusiastic applause from those whose music formation happened in the late 60's.  I wasn't there, and, short of "being there" it would be difficult to make that determination that there was "little in common."

Perhaps Mike was "standing in the shoes of BRI" to protect the brand.  That would mean he was protecting Brian, too.  The court found he was deprived of lyric royalties, earlier, but it also appears that it was the hand of Murry. 

Mike sang beautifully on Smile. It would be hard to make an argument that someone who did not support the work would sing so well, and not make only a half-hearted effort.  Or, refuse to sing at all, which would support that theory.

When was the last time Brian sang Surf`s Up in concert again? I guess Mike must have vetoed it from a fair few of his solo shows as well...

Ang`s posting has certainly improved though. Back in 2004 when Mike and Bruce were getting rave reviews for their UK tour Scott Totten had to post on the blueboard due to her posting false information about the content of the shows. A much better effort this time around.  Smiley

Yes, I remember it well. I had accused them of doing a medley of abridged songs when in fact it was a segue of back to back unabridged songs. They went through them pretty briskly as I recall hence the incorrect statement.

Wish I could return the compliment. Afraid not. If you are whom I believe you to be, and your citing my earlier posts certainly convinces me I'm right, your style hasn't changed AT ALL.

@Ang

Honestly, I don't know how you can mistake or confuse Mike's comments of not liking the conditions in which the Smile music was created and the actual music. Two completely different things. I am sure that all of the guys didn't like all of the songs ever created by any band member for any album. I am sure that once that song is chosen as a possible track, that they get behind it and do their very best to see it gets recorded and is given the full treatment.

That's right, he did say that. That is cool that they came through on it. Hopefully they will add it to the U.S. shows, as well.
