So stoked on this. I have got to get my hands on a copy.

Does anyone have any idea why Denny chose the title (as well as the spelling) "Bambu"? Interestingly, all the boots I'd had years ago entitled the project "Bamboo", but I assume that the "Bambu" spelling was completely intentional.

I did just learn from a quick Google search that "bambu" is a type of rolling paper, could that be the origin of Denny's title?:

I would be surprised if it was anything different than what was on disc 2 of the POB set. That tracklist is two LPs worth of music.

Has the tracklisting been made available anywhere?

Edit, that was a really stupid question. Obviously it hasn't been made available yet. I really hope there are some extras (not on the POB re-release and a cool tracklist that makes it sound more like an actual album and not just a comp of tracks.

I think I'll listen to POB tonight.

Rotate This in Toronto tweeted that people have been calling them all day asking if they're getting such-and-such, and that they have ordered "almost every single thing"  being offered for RSD, so fingers crossed... but you could always call your local participating RSD store and find out for sure Smiley

It should be noted that it is listed as a "RSD First Release," meaning that it will be widely available later on.

Does anyone have any idea why Denny chose the title (as well as the spelling) "Bambu"? Interestingly, all the boots I'd had years ago entitled the project "Bamboo", but I assume that the "Bambu" spelling was completely intentional.

For years, I assumed that the title was simply, uh, a reference to Dennis's, um, favourite nickname for himself. Or rather, er... a part of himself. The name of which, perhaps unsurprisingly, he also used to refer to the, ah, whole of himself.

And then we learned that it was supposed to have been Bambu all along, not Bamboo. Which prolly makes the rolling papers connection more likely. Actually, how did that change come about? Was it based on something in the documentation for the sessions, or did the folks behind the 2008 reissue retitle it?

I'm guessing the latter is unlikely, as all the guys behind that set had such regard for Dennis, I can't imagine they would have retitled it unless they had evidence that the man himself had wanted it that way. But now I stop to think about it... I don't actually know the story of how Bamboo became Bambu. If there is one!

No real story, it seems, just a word of mouth thing that resulted the name getting misspelt on bootlegs and elsewhere: "Bambu has been referenced as 'Bamboo' in numerous articles on Dennis and the Beach Boys, but paperwork that accompanied the sessions now reveals the artist always intended for the album to be titled Bambu."

The website is french but bare with me, you'll find the tracklist of this release here:
http://disquaireday.fr/

Click on "vinyls" and then go to the letter "D" and click on ya boi Dennis Wilson et you'll get the tracklist of this Bambu reissue.

Spoiler; there's no new material, the whole thing is just spread on the two vinyls as in with all that space it gives a less compressed sound, for a better quality audio experience, they've been doing that for a while now, see Dig Out Your Soul by Oasis on vinyl that can fit on just one but that is on two vinyls.

Wasn't expecting it to, the backing track was recorded in 1974, and of course Taylor Hawkins =/= Dennis Wilson.

I'm glad to see this getting a release, even if its pretty much just the second disc of POB deluxe edition. Although I would have preferred to see them put together something more along the lines of a traditional 12-14 track single LP, it'll still be really neat to actually hold an official vinyl record of Bambu in my hands!

One thing I don't get about this release is that there was already a widely distributed version of the POB deluxe edition on LP. I believe it was a triple set and may even still be in print, although it was very expensive.

Why not use a beautiful Ed Roach photo for the package?
Seems to be a no brainer.

I have an original Booted version of Bamboo from the mid eighties found that a record collector show. It has a beautiful picture of Dennis on the front as well as some back cover photos taken on the beach at the pier. Great photos and the original album jacket. Looking forward to the release

Because they are using beautiful Dean Torrence photos for the package.  Dean did the album design for this new release, just as he did for Pacific Ocean Blue, back in the day, and I can't wait to see it.

Wait -- That's a beautiful photo? Him BUSTED with the boom box?
Are you making a case that the 11 Dean Torrence shots of Dennis LOADED that day trumps the brilliance of what Ed Roach has in his archive from 1975 to 1978?

I don't believe I said any such thing, Howie.  Ed's an excellent photographer.  

Dean's a brilliant graphic artist, Grammy-Award Winning album designer and did some breathtaking photography for Dennis' album... amazing shots.  And that one he picked for the cover, with Dennis sitting next to the boom box, is the perfect choice for Bambu.
