Hey, Watamushi,

Add "2" for DDD - can't stand it by now. Ta.
PLMW - 2. Dislike it.
Done!

5. No question. PLMW is an all-time favorite of mine. I never tire of it.

First song Brian wrote on marijuana...and I feel like it's his first truly mellow song. I mean, 'Lonely Sea', 'We'll Run Away', etc are mellow, but his mellow songs up to this point had obvious inspiration from prior artists. Whereas PLMW is like in a whole new world of mellow, an atmosphere Brian kinda invented for this specific song.

Anywho, I give it 5/5. The album from here on is just incredible.

PLMW

FIVE. One of the sweetest lead vocals by Brian. A very angelic song. Beautiful.

I love the percussion during the chorus, mixed with that reverb heavy guitar/bass(?). I think there's a single or alternate version of this song that is really heavy in the bass - not as good as this version but it sounds fantastic in its own way.

5/5

Yes, a five for me too. Stunning vocal work and a gorgeous backing track.

And how dare they tamper with Mike's flubbed double-tracked "wo (wo) baby" in the stereo version. Oddly, they left in the wrong "wo"! Grin

Another 5! Incredible, stunning work. It doesn't get much better than this. I LOVE the vocal arrangement. One of my all-time favorite, in fact. Must be a top 10 BBs song, no? I think it's one of their finest moments. The entire group shines on this song.

Happy to see KMB to get "1". Smiley To say it's boring is being too kind to it.

"She Knows" is 5. Pure beauty, melodic & fitting backing track.

Today's song is She Knows Me Too Well.

Surely the word heartbreaking was coined for this song. Brian's vocals in the chorus (and the fade) can't fail to melt even the hardest of hearts.

One fantastic ballad after another----what a side!

Kicking myself for not commenting on 'She Knows Me Too Well' - my favorite from this era. It's like a matured 'Don't Worry Baby', the tracks for this song on the KAEOS set are a must listen for any fan. 5/5

As for In The Back Of My Mind...5/5. The arrangement alone is one of the most beautiful compositions Brian ever put together, and I cant believe the backing track hasn't been officially released for this yet. For real, of all the countless compilations we've gotten in the last couple years, you'd think a gem like this would come out. That being said, thank you to whoever first booted this track, what a moment that must've been to be one of the first to hear that backing track in ages...now we all get to enjoy it regardless of its exclusion from official sets.

Edit: also wanted to comment on the mono vs stereo versions of the song, both are good but I'll always be partial to the double tracked Dennis version.

Exactly. Was so miffed that there wasn't a 1965 release such as the excellent Keep an Eye on Summer for 1964. Desperately wanted to have a copy of this instrumental track. Hopefully the one online will be able to stay up - I listen in awe to it at least once a week.
Brian was 22 years old. Wow.

Getting Dennis to sing "ITBOMM" was a masterstroke. Those last couple of sung lines! That string tag! The entire instrumentation is a work of genius.

But (big but)... how on earth do you follow this? Wait for the next exciting episode to find out! Grin
