It's been a long time since we've had a big coffee table book on The Beach Boys. This one is loaded with great photos and reproductions of magazine articles. As with most books like this there are some factual errors (for example, BWPS was NOT a live album!) but it's a nice overview of their career and, for those who get a kick out of this sort thing, even delves a little into the ousting of Al Jardine and various latter day Mike Love-led projects that never materialized.

BWPS was a live project. It was the music arranged in a way that would be easy and satisfying to perform live. I know the 2004 release wasnt the live recording but I could see what they mean by that. Easy mistake/miscommunication to make.

Here are my SMiLE Mixes. All are 2 suite, but still vastly different in several ways. Be on the lookout for another, someday.

Dumb Angel (Olorin Edition)>HERE
Dumb Angel [the Romestamo Cut]>HERE

& This is a new pet project Ive worked on, which combines Fritz Lang's classic film, Metropolis (1927) with The United States of America (1968) as a new soundtrack. More info is in the video description.

Hmm..I would agree in principle, but that was a MAJOR deal "the heavens have parted" kind of release at the time. Pretty much the biggest event in Beach Boys history in ages. It may be an editor's fault. I know that there are also wrong dates attributed to photos but I know that generally that's not the domain the author.
