I'd also add being able to hear some of what had been buried on I Just Wasn't Made For These Times on the same vocals-only disc was a revelation.

If there was only a way to rescue Denny's original lead vocal from I Just Wasn't Made For These Times. I keep hoping a way will be invented to "rescue" tape that might have been taped over (sort of how historians can remove a painting that has been painted on top of another), but I realize the limitations of magnetic tape might make this forever impossible. I also wonder if there's a way to tell from actually looking at the physical splice on the reels of tape if those lines of vocals which are thought to be splice-ins of Denny's lead are in fact such. I'll keep dreaming...

Perhaps I put too much faith in atmosphere

There's moments that I will forever remember as melting my brain. One: the water chant from Cool Cool Water. That had never been done before or since. And the tag on Smiley Smile version of Wind Chimes still sounds otherworldly and always sought me to find a holy grail of BB harmonies which I've never found.
Also as a guilty pleasure for a song I normally can't stand & offending my Brianista sensibilities, the vocal breakdown in I Can See Music is draw dropping and sets the sense for all the other cliched BB 'sounds' in the future

Agreed 100% about the water chant and the SS "WC" tag.

And your guilty pleasure looks pretty guilty to me. LOL

I only wish this was available in better sound quality.  From a very old boot, a Please Let Me Wonder session.  The final take where the boot-maker drops the backing track out- mindblowing.

just play from 07.43
wow creamy, love the dynamics on the chorus.
