This is the incorrect speed, right?

I've come to believe that it's actually both Brian and Al trading lines on Daddy Dear. I think perhaps it's a case where they were both sitting around a piano, and one was teaching the song to the other, and said person started singing once they became familiar with the words and melody.

This is undoubtedly Brian. Go and listen to the '75 In The Back Of My Mind demo, then this, then tell me whether you still think it's Al!

I don't hear any trading of lines personally. The only other person I hear on the tape is Bruce reacting to Brian demoing this.

Wow. That is SO Brian Wilson. Did we find out if it's an original?

Do you mean the first song? It's 'Little Bird - Daddy Dear' apparently composed in the 30s by Cab Calloway:

I wonder if Brian heard this version from the Lawrence Welk show:

Same here. You hear  a second voice kind of singing along part of the way through.

Thanks for the links Buddhahat!

Absolutely beautiful song...No wonder Brian was tinkering with it! I'd love for this community to assemble a list of songs that Brian was interested in throughout the years. A playlist for both Spotify and Apple Music (and Youtube) would be great. It would probably help our understanding for his evolution of musical ideas throughout the years (especially the time between Smiley Smile and Love You).

"ragegasm" - /rāj ē ga-zəm/ : a logical mental response produced when your favorite band becomes remotely associated with the bro-country genre.

You're welcome! It is a beautiful song and I would have loved to hear how Brian might've produced this, at any point in his career.

Good idea - get on it!

If the demo was in Holland, it can't be Bruce he was never there. Likely Brian and Al.

Fair point. That "mmm" at 1.50 sure sounds like Bruce to me though.

I've listened again and I'm struggling to hear any trading or doubling of lines. Somebody else occasionally whistles but that's the only secondary input I can hear.

Amen!

Wow there are hardcore BB fans than think this is Alan rather than Brian?
It sounds exactly like Brian, and like Shortenin' Bread, who other than Brian would be obsessed with an inconsequential obscure tune such as Daddy Dear in the early 70s?

Is there any evidence Brian was "obsessed" with a song of which we have one single sketchy home recording?

Al wasn't exactly going mainstream by riffing on stuff like "Raspberries, Strawberries" by the Kingston Trio in that same era.

Whether this tape is Brian or Al, or both, the songs selected and performed on the tape don't scream "Brian" to me at all. If anything, it's hard to argue that Brian doing "Susie Cincinnati" makes at least a *tiny bit* less sense than Al doing it.

Well gang, we now have a HQ version out on the new box set. I was always Team Brian, but Iíll be darned if I havenít changed my stance. The talking is unmistakably Al to me. I donít have a physical copy of the set, is there any info given in the liner notes?
