A recent interview (August 8th) with Paul where he also discusses about Brian and the Beach Boys:

Maron is pretty educated on the beach boys around the smile era , expected him to dig deeper

I don't recall ever  hearing about Brian playing Good Vibrations to Paul before it was released.

Good thing Paul's Beach Boys discussion wasn't in the same interview as the monkey spanking discussion he had recently!

Oh if that same story came to light involving this band, I cannot even fathom...  LOL

This was an issue I raised here back in 2012 courtesy a small clipping in the Smile Sessions box set (CD gatefold, far left panel FYI) that mentioned a meeting at Derek Taylor's house between Paul, George, Carl, and Brian.

That discussion tracked it down to the Beatles visit to LA during their last tour in 1966.

Paul's recollection of hearing GV adds MORE info to this. It was most likely an early version of GV, either an acetate or a tape dub of what had to be the state the song was in at that time, whatever that may have been. But wow...there is some new info courtesy of Paul! Thanks Paul!

Here's the original thread from 2012 which shed more light on that meeting at Derek Taylor's: http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,12096.0.html

PS - Paul's comments as of this most recent interview again sheds light on how the Beach Boys, Brian, and Pet Sounds in particular were influences on what Paul and The Beatles were doing in the mid 60's.

If you have the 1990 CD release of Pet Sounds, the liner notes features a 1990 interview with McCartney conducted by David Leaf where Paul tells pretty much the same story he told Marc Maron.

Really? Where do you get that? All I’ve ever heard him say when musicians mention BW is that he’s tried and understands it’s supposed to be great, but that he’s never been able to get into him, “too sad.” (Then he usually talks about Peter Green for about 500 years at a time.)

FWIW I just came across this article:

Everything Fab Four: “Good Vibrations” and the Beatles


https://www.culturesonar.com/everything-fab-four-good-vibrations-and-the-beatles/


If there were a respite for the Fab Four that summer, it occurred on Sun., Aug. 28, 1966, when Paul McCartney and George Harrison met the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson for the very first time.

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.
