Interestingly (sorry if already mention) the rather decent 'The Beach Boys Americas Band' book by Johnny Morgan from 2015 certainly includes the 2 said albums into the core discography

Yeah, and Morgan doesnít really hold back on how friggin horrible SIP sounds either LOL I really love the book, itís FULL of great pictures of the band and good commentary to go with them.

Itís so odd to me that The Beach Boys website doesnít include SIP or SC in the discography, but the Wikipedia page does. Also odd about The Beach Boys website is that someone actually thought it a good idea to promote the Mark McGrath ĎDo It Againí cover right on the homepage. Quality control much?

The C50 Tour Program included Still Crusin' in the pictures of the album sleeves but not SIP.

Both albums were released and promoted as Beach Boys albums at the time, no amount of revisionism can alter that fact.  As such they should be available in some format, not airbrushed out of existence.

Even if it was promoted as such at the time, Still Cruisin' really isn't much of an album.  Three new songs, three recent soundtrack contributions, Wipe Out which was two years old by that point and already on a Fat Boys album, and three classic songs from the '60s.  I think the only reason it gets recognized is because Kokomo was such a big hit and it was the first time it appeared on a Beach Boys release, even though it had already been on the Cocktail soundtrack.  Otherwise it would probably be seen as just another in the endless series of Beach Boys compilations.

Both albums should be included in the discography.  There were new songs and they were front and center as the featured artists. Stars and Stripes, however, should not be included as they were guests on their allegedly own album

For many years, I thought S&S was a tribute album. I didn't realise that all of the surviving members(plus Matt Jardine) sang on every song(albeit, backing vocals only). I then begrudgingly bought it. If not for the great contributions from Willie Nelson and Timothy Schmidt I'd burn it. How anybody let this embarrassing monstrosity out over a Beach Boys album of the Paley sessions will forever baffle me.

You're a lot kinder than I was when I first heard it.  I already don't care for country that much. Then you throw in that most of it ranks as very bad country. Then throw in the fact that some of the artists included were not actual country singers (besides Schmidt, Kathy Troccoli is a CCM singer like people like Michael W Smith). Then you add in the fact that the BB were not front and center? As my daughter likes to say "Ya know what...? uh uh"

You know all those E.T. Atari games they found in a landfill? They should have put S&S in it's place.  Grin

The best song didn't even make it to S&S vol.1

Tammy Wynette's cover of In my Room

that one can be found on a Tammy tribute album, of all places.

It basically is a tribute album.  In 2000, The Doors put out a tribute album that featured all members (including Jim), but they luckily knew enough to not put THE DOORS on the top of the album cover.
