Thanks, Adw.

I can't wait to find out which songs he's chosen and how he treats them. Looking forward to the album.

Keeping my fingers crossed for "Shortenin' Bread" and "Be My Baby"! Judging by the PS50 concerts, I wouldn't be surprised if "River Deep, Mountain High" makes the cut.

Oh... he's finally getting around to releasing the Rock n Roll album that has been promised since Imagination nearly 20 years ago? I'll believe it when I see it. And then, let me guess, he'll follow up with an album called Pleasure Island.

"Because of the attitude of a few mental dinosaurs intent on exploiting our initial success, Brian's huge talent has never been fully appreciated in America and the potential of the group has been stifled.... If the Beatles had suffered this kind of misrepresentation, they would have never got past singing 'Please Please Me' and 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand' and leaping around in Beatle suits."

Yeah, definitely nothing new in that article. It's basically another instance of Brian mentioning that he'd like to do that "rock and roll" album.

I'm also pretty certain that even if he had begun recording (and I doubt he's had much time to do a lot of studio work since March when the tour started), it's extremely unlikely they'd get any album out before the end of this year.

I've already gone on record that while I love the idea of Brian continuing to create, regardless of the exact theme of a given project, a "rock and roll" album doesn't interest me a great deal. Brian is capable of recording well-done re-recordings of oldies from the 50s and 60s, but I've always been far, far more interested in original material.

The best thing, in my mind, that could come out of the decades-old idea of a "rock and roll album" would be that it might help feed Brian's muse and mood for music in general. If it would truly be fulfilling for him, that would probably worth more to me than the degree to which I actually would *love* the recordings themselves.

Ballads and melodic pop tunes have always been Brian's thing. The thought of hearing an album full of doo-wop songs or 12-bar-blues numbers, of hearing Chuck Berry remakes, etc., just doesn't sound very interesting. I'd be more excited by a Blu-ray of the PS tour or something.

My guess is that if Brian does something along the lines of this album, it won't be strictly old school Chucky Berry-style "rock and roll"; it will probably just be 50s and 60s songs he digs, and maybe a few originals. I would guess nothing on it would be awful, and much of it would be like his covers of stuff like "California Sun" or "Listen to Me", etc. I think there's always room for a random gem of a re-recording.

But in the realm of unrealistic "what he *should* release" wishes, I'd rather see him finish off the "That's Why God Made the Radio" outtakes, throw in some other "suite" stuff, maybe toss in a few oldies covers.

Yeah, no way it'll be out before the end of the year. Maybe he meant NEXT year.

Simply not enough time, with the touring and all

Really would like to hear Brian doing something like that. I tried to figure a possible tracklist. Add to that "River deep, mountain high" and his own "I'm broke" which he played in concert but weren't mentioned by me in this post:


http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,20516.msg514931.html#msg514931



Since he might have Blondie on the album they could revisit "For your precious love" which Blondie recorded and sang with The Flame(s):

I also really like the 15 Big Ones outtake of "Shake, rattle and roll" which I think Al could still do a great job with.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxkB2E8yk_Q




I could get very excited for this. Maybe we all should make a list of ideas for songs he could record, so Brian doesn't have to do it all by himself.  Grin

Hey come on you guys, in 2004 he was given a chance to reclaim Smile and it made in everybody happy.  Why shouldn't he also be given the chance to reclaim 15 Big Ones?  Smiley

Instead, I'd love if the RnR album finally came to fruition, especially if it featured at least a couple of new rockers by Brian. He's the King of Rock'n'Roll, after all. Smiley

That'd be a good one too, Matt.

Here's another one that just occurred to me... "Baby Blue" by Badfinger!

OMG that would be killer!

I'd love it if the album isn't a straight-ahead RNR album, but covers of 60s and 70s songs in general.
