1977 and '78. AGD will clarify:

Was there any logic as to what ended up as a bonus track on disc 1 of the Pacific Ocean Blue/Bambu set and what ended up on disc 2? I'm only just now realizing that things like "Only with You" and "Mexico" were recorded after POB was released.

The backing track for "Only With You" was recorded during the POB sessions, although the vocals were reportedly added a year later.
To be honest, I think they just put stuff where they did mostly 'cause it fit where it did. Although Guercio really wanted to end Bambu with "Piano Variations".

I would love To have a "sequal" to the POB/Bambu set. Are there any other high quality unreleased songs in the vaults? I know that Dennis re-recorded "All Alone" in 1979. I would give my left foot to hear the "Labor Day" tape, if it still exists.

And, as I noted in my other thread, as beautiful as "Piano Variations" is, it doesn't really resemble "Thoughts of You" -- it's in a different key and has a largely different chord progression! (It's more similar to "Cuddle Up" and "Time" than it is to "Thoughts of You." I'm inclined to think it's a demo for a different song than all of the above.)

More than one person, around the time of BAMBU's release, swore to me there was.  I was highly skeptical, but I heard the same thing from two or three people who'd be in a position to know, and they were talking about releasing it.  Needless to say, it didn't happen. So make of that what you will.

Now that sounds pretty intriguing.  Grin Another thing I'd dearly love to have is a cd or two of rehearsals for Dennis's abandoned tour.

Somebody on here(maybe Andrew Doe?)once said that Carl was to be a part of the touring band, and that the set list would have been the complete POB album, with an encore of "Baby Blue". I'd pretty much move Heaven and Earth to hear that.  Grin

I second that!

A release of those rehearsals was going to be the next project from Guercio after POB/Bambu, but after the success of the Legacy release it apparently stalled and is on indefinite hold. A shame, since these tapes are supposed to be absolutely incredible.

Sorry to be a bit off-topic, but I'd prefer a release of Dennis Wilson Box Set or multiple CD set which includes (all of) his songs in the vaults from post-Friends Sessions to 'Labor Day' Sessions. I think that would sell pretty well, considering how many copies of Pacific Ocean Blue/Bamboo 30th anniversary set.

I'd prefer Brother/Caribou Rarities box set of 6 (or so) CD's even more, though.

For that to happen, there would need to be a Brother-Caribou joint release (like what was done with the Stones' Forty Licks and Grrr! releases, which were done jointly through ABCKO-UMe). These kinds of intra-label collaborations are rare.

Is Ten Years of Harmony such a joint release? Are there any examples of joint releases in BB catalog?

Ten Years Of Harmony was released in 1981, when Brother was in an ongoing joint venture with Caribou/CBS. When the Beach Boys left Warner/Reprise in '78, they brought with them the rights to their 1970-'78 catalog - so there was no problem doing that compilation. After they left CBS in '86, they took their ;79-'85 catalog with them, too - which is how releases like Made In USA were possible.

Sadly, although these were all undoubtedly written, some of these weren't actually recorded.

Is this truly the original sleeve art? I dig it too. Anybody ever find the back side?
