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.

Thanks, Rocker. Not a fan but that's no reason not to wish TJW many happy returns of the day. Smiley

So it features a couple of re-recordings among others. Here are the original/earlier versions:

"Cool town woman": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9mKGr-8e9o (from "Closer to the truth")

I just read that unfortunately TJW had to cancel his australian tour because of back problems.

I don't think I've posted this before on this board. Anyway, well worth posting again. It's the young TJW in all his raw beauty:

As you can read under the links above, the new album's title song was written in the mid-60s as one of TJW's very first songs and he recorded it as a demo. I never heard that recording but it seems it is this one:
