Also, who is the "AJR" featured on Darlin'?

Al Jardine's Replacement

Three brothers influenced by The Beach Boys. This track excites me, as AJR are very good. Check out the official videos of "I'm Ready " and "Call My Dad " on YouTube. They are very good. I saw them open for Ingrid Michaelson a while back.

I'm glad to see him finally release a new solo album, but having the Beach Boys name on there, as pointed out elsewhere in the thread, is just the type of thing that Mike would sue about, so WTF?

I'm not gonna lie, I get super excited anytime ANYTHING BBs related is released, be it an archival album, new compilation, or new solo work. I just can't contain my excitement... Ok, maybe I'm getting a little too excited--- this is a Mike Love solo album we're talking about. But Cool Head Warm Heart is amazing, and I'm looking forward to hearing some songs I never heard before. If these are the re-recordings featured in Mike's book trailer, I will be satisfied. They sounded pretty good in the trailer. I'm just really bummed that there's no Big Sur. The version in his book trailer sounded sooooo good!!!! PETITION FOR 4/4 BIG SUR TO BE RELEASED!!!

I don't even know any such thing about AJD, but that is beyond a classless comment.

Not surprised that the reactions here are mostly negative, but I am glad this is finally getting released.

I'll back that up. Brilliant band. Apparently Mike thinks so too.

This double album looks good. In a way, Beach Boys Re-Records was the one missing link in the chain. As I see it, if the various Boys were never to enter a recording studio again, the circle would now be complete. This was the one ingredient that was missing----an album of BB stuff played by Mike, Bruce and the band.

However I will say first off, where is "Big Sur"? I thought it was left off of Made In California cuz it was being "saved" for Mike's solo album?

Just for the record, this was speculation on my part a while back based solely off the fact that a re-recording of it ended up in a promo video for his book. Still, don’t know why they didn’t bring it out for this. Other Love/Lloyd re-recordings not making it to the album off the top of my head: “Surfin’ USA” & “Sloop John B.”

Couple of observations

1.  The 1st disc is mildly intriguing. 

2.  The 2nd disc is completely unnecessary, and I don't understand why the surviving Beach Boys still feel compelled to try to re-record their old songs. 

3.  I wonder if this might lead to CD releases of his past solo albums

I'll buy this.  Always happy to have new material from the boys!  Getcha Back, I suspect, is the version they have been playing live with some new lyrics - a bit disappointed that Stamos is playing drums on it as I really like John's drumming on that tune.  Looking forward to Wild Honey with Cowsill - that has been a highlight of their live shows for me.  Good on Mike for finally getting some material out there.

I mean, he’s been putting material out there the last couple of years and it’s been consistently awful. I agree with Lonely Summer that the reaction here has been unsurprisingly negative, but I think that’s attributed to people here not being unrealistic about what we’ll be getting with this set...and it’s also attributed to people not being ignorant of Mike’s hypocrisy when it comes to his band mates releasing their own solo material (mike mocking Brian’s supposed use of autotune then using it in copiously laughable amounts, Mike getting all angsty and suing Brian for using The Beach Boys for a freebie CD but Mike is using it here to promote his own little solo venture, etc).

I’m with Thorgil though, if Brian is serious about recording a rock and roll album hopefully this will inspire some friendly competition and kick Brian into gear to make an awesome album.

Wow. Hate the music, hate the kitschy lyrics, hate the bluesy tone. I cannot believe this man actually thinks he's a serious artist.

Hmmmm, not as bad as I thought it would be, nor as bad as it could be. It doesn't sound too much like a Mike song, but if the production and instrumentation are an indication of the rest of the album, it might actually be good. Fingers crossed Grin
