I really think that a finished Lei'd In Hawaii album as presented on Sunshine Tomorrow had a good chance of being a hit and in that event given them some much-needed breathing room with Capitol.  Obviously things went differently and I'm grateful for the music they recorded for Wild Honey/Friends and 20/20, but with a hit live album in '67 you might have seen more realized versions of those albums and Brian sticking around longer.

I would have loved to see Lei'd in Hawaii released back then, but the overdubbed audience would have just ruined it for me IMO. It's the reason that I really don't like the original Party! album, but I adore the "uncovered" mix. I'm here to listen to the band play, not to hear clapping and screaming girls! Wink


I'm guessing because none of the tracks (save the two from Michigan '66) would have actually been "live" I think the audience overdubbing would have been more subdued, at least more than the original live album from '64 (which was made up of mostly real live recordings with real screams).  I mean, the entire reason why the live recordings from the Hawaii shows were deemed unusable (I think) is because there was too much screaming and interjections from the audience.  During one of the performances of God Only Knows, some girl is screaming Carl's name and Brian yells "HE'S SINGING, COOL IT!".

But who knows, maybe they would have hired hundreds of girls to scream at the Hollywood Bowl for half an hour with a tape recorder running.  I'm not sure how the overdubbing would have worked.

I have never heard offered the excuse before that the reason Lei'd wasn't released was because of excessive positive audience response (screams, etc).  However I have read that reasons proffered were a sub-par performance by Brian (probably not to be unexpected given his lack of recent live performance experience) or some sort of snafu with the live recordings which made the majority of them unusable.

I see the set has debuted at 145 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart. Not a bad showing at all for a set like this. And, only 3 spaces lower than 50 Big Ones at 142.

Wow, that is really disappointing, I thought the showing on the Amazon charts would translate to a much higher position for SST on the Billboard charts.  It got pretty good pre-release publicity too!  Wonder if the "1967" in the title may have worked against it?  I really thought the cover was a bit bland also...I was perusing the previous Billboard and noticed several Beatles albums and even the last Glenn Campbell album charting very high on the charts, so it is not performing so well against some of its contemporaries....
