Nice track.  Sounds like it was written for Grace of My Heart from Andy Paley's description.

Sounds like Brian's 90s singing (and track with overdubs*). Nice, nice, nice!!!

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Sounds like it was written for Brian Wilson and called "Meet Me in My Dreams Tonight."  Cheesy

He can hardly sing his ass off.  Even the article noted he was in poor voice in concert.  His days of singing well are past him.  And what is with all the cussing, he sounds like a Tourette's sufferer....

The fact that the majority of the  Paley stuff is still sitting there unreleased is a crime against humanity.

The version I've heard of this is a bit slower and sounds better because of it IMO.

I think this song is pretty average.  Still wont likely stop me from buying the collection.

You are a terrible person, by the way would you like to be banned? It's one thing to pick at the music, but please don't spread insults toward Brian, he always has the most respect for Mike. Mike can't do one nice for him in return. This board used to be enjoyable before you came along.

That repetitive percussion sound that plays throughout the entire song is kind of grating, but other than that it sounds great.

Today is the first day of school where I am and it is ironic that Brian Wilson released a song called "Some Sweet Day".  I hope that is a good omen.

So I must admit, I'm not blown away by this new tune. I don't think I had ever heard it via bootleg, but perhaps I did at some point. Regardless, I have to say that I'm not the hugest fan of the Paley sessions, though I do think that "You're Still A Mystery" is a classic, and though it's not from the 1990s sessions, "Meet Me In My Dreams Tonight" might just be my favorite solo Brian Wilson tune (unless you're counting "Caroline No"). I think that "Baywatch Nights" could've been incredibly great if it was finished, but even in it's unfinished state it's still beautiful with great vocals from both Carl and the group. I'd also like to say "Soul Searchin'" is pretty great as well, though I can really only take The Beach Boys version, since Brian's bridge vocal on the GIOMH version is....yuck.

But back to this one, maybe it'll grow on me. I like that they left the mid '90s vocal on there, cuz it's great to listen through all the different Brian voices we've heard over the years. Though next to his 15 Big Ones and GIOMH voices, this is probably one of his least commercial sounds, so I can understand why he replaced his vocal on "You're Still A Mystery."

I work with some troubled individuals. When I encounter someone on a message board who enjoys getting a reaction, I just work under the assumption they have some sort of condition. I know plenty of folk who are mildly on the autistic spectrum who thoroughly enjoy getting reactions from what they say or do. Just work under that assumption and ignore his posts if they bother you.

MTG had been doing this consistently since the "Male Ego message forum days.  That was like 15 years ago.  Clearly he still likes getting a rise out of people.  Some people don't grow up.

I think this song is pretty average.  Still wont likely stop me from buying the collection.

It's a pretty textbook example of a "best of" compilation "bonus track." I wouldn't expect them to take a mind-blowing song worth building a new album around and sticking it on a "best of" compilation. I doubt they were even aiming to pick the best of the unreleased Paley tracks (I would guess many here would agree something like "It's Not Easy Being Me" is superior, or even the original version of "Gettin' in Over My Head", etc.).

Ideally, "Some Sweet Day" would have appeared on a multi-disc Brian rarities compilation (and/or a full disc of the Paley material).

Anybody else hear that woodwind melody line running through the song several times and here something similar to what they did running into the instrumental break on "A Friend Like You?" And yeah, the track also has a bit of "Da Doo Ron Ron/Meet Me In My Dreams Tonight" going on as well.

It's too bad they didn't do what I thought would have been a good idea, which was to put out a "Best of" disc and sell a "Deluxe" version with a second disc filled with rare singles, b-sides, soundtrack songs, and a selection of key solo outtakes.

Hopefully, though, doing a solo "Best of" might be the first step towards doing something on the "archival" side with Brian's solo stuff.

That's what I was hoping for.  About ten or so years ago, Robert Plant did a solo anthology.  The first disc was a best of collection of his solo career, and the second disc was odds and ends, and even some pre Led Zep stuff. 

This collection could've been a nice catch all for Brian's odds and ends, soundtrack songs, songs on tribute albums (Wanderlust would've been great), etc.

A Brian catch-all would be nice and I've passively advocated for it. On the other hand, a lot of us have already collected most if not all of those random one-off tracks, so I'd *rather* see unreleased archival compilations as opposed to some weird catch-all that has "Walking Down the Path of Life", the alternate "Live Let Live", "Believe in Yourself", "Wanderlust", etc.. That is, if we could only get one or the other.

Brian's weird non-album tracks are interesting, but few of them are truly mind-blowing "should have been on an album" tracks. A few are, like "Message Man" and "This Song Wants to Sleep With You Tonight", and a few others.

What I'd really like is a good-sounding version of his great recording of "What a Wonderful World" from OCA sessions.

Perhaps one day we'll see a boxset of some of these gems, even if it's only in digital form (sadly, I can't imagine there's a huge market for a tangible Brian Wilson rarities box).
