How about that  new recording of "Love and Mercy" with The Miraculous Love Kids. That would be a great album closer.



Well, that's not a Christmas song
No it's not, but quite often songs that were not written for the Holiday Season are appropriated by artists for their Christmas albums if the song is in the right spirit. 'My Favorite Things' used by Barbra Streisand for example. 'Love and Mercy' in this context very much reminds me of John Lennon's 'Happy Xmas (War Is Over)'. Thanks for the all the links you provided. I had not heard many of those.

You're welcome!
Yeah, sometimes such things are done for albums. But this list is not an album as such (as in: one project) but just a salmagundi of different Christmas-themed songs by the Beach Boys.

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

PRO SHOT BEACH BOYS CONCERTS - LIST


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.

Since it's that time of year again, I thought I'd up this thread for everybody who's interested.

Not the BBs but this was a true BB-related rarity until I re-released it. In all of my research, I've only found one person who had a copy (listed online) plus I saw it listed on a rare Murry bootleg.

Does anyone here have the tape that sold a couple years ago? If so, I read over on the Hoffman boards that Child of Winter is a different mix than the 45 or the Ultimate Christmas remix.

Not even sure of the differences between those two issues as I haven’t done a side by side comparison, but I’d be curious to know how the “album”/tape mix sounds.

Wow, I'll add that in some way. Some of the lyrics reminded me of "Vegetables" (the part about the vest etc).
