If we were ever to get a best attempt at a "finished" Can't Wait Too Long/Been Way Too Long, today's release would have been the time.  So it doesn't look like that will happen -- but a lot of pieces are there.

What thoughts do people have as to what goes where?  Anyone thinking of improving on previous efforts to create a fan finished version??

Honestly I like it best as is...it works as a finished song even as joined snippets  IMHO

It’s like they said with the SMiLE sessions, “roll your own.” This version has all the goodies for us to piece together our own. I can’t wait to see what some fans come up with!

When I get the time I’m going to write more about this amazing. This far, jaw droppingly awesome.

The Beach Boys legacy is still being mortared to this day...it has a solid and unbreakable foundation of incredible songs that tower above most bands, yet some bricks are more brittle and ugly than others (even some bricks put down more recently)...thus is the nature of any entity that continues to exist. You are not defined solely by your good achievements in life, you're also defined by those unpleasant moments too. This law of life, thankfully, helps keep us all in check.

Maybe I put too much faith in atmosphere

For me it's the 2fer version (the one I heard first), although it does mean "thinking in" the spoken passages from the GV box set...

I know more than a little about “rolling your own “ ☺️ But anyways I really dig this version of one of my favorite songs of all time but I got a question. I read somewhere that they continued to work on this until 1980 for the Keeping the Summer Alive album?!

^ Not sure if there was any further work done but yes it was indeed slated to be in the album. Now if it was re-record or the existing track would’ve been on there or not is a different story completely. I’m not sure on that one. Perhaps c-man could enlighten us.

And production aside, I’d so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591

"Sections" is certainly better than anything we've had before.  If they had left off roughly the first 2:10 and last :45, that would have been even better IMO, but then that's easy enough to do at home.

Curious to know if the new pieces that were added to this version newly-discovered in the vaults?

Or was it just a case of previously-released versions of this song simply didn't use every available asset/morsel purely for creative choices?
