A very nice choice of materials for Side B that courageously goes against "common wisdom" regarding placement of certain segments (DYLW <--> Wind Chimes).

That said, my gut sense is that DYLW is the prelude to H&V and thus should precede it on Side A, and that Wind Chimes should be the first cut on Side B, which could then nicely unfold as you have it (but w/o DYLW and going directly into that really nice "Great Shape" mashup which does a great job of showing how so many segments could be slammed up against each other to interesting effect).

Domenic Priore suggested in LLVS that "Wind Chimes" could have been the follow-up single to GV. I think it might have done OK if it had followed the Cantina version of H&V, maybe in the late spring of '67. Think of it as an ethereal response to "Penny Lane," but with a much more killer bass line.

Thank you! I had actually considered placing “Wind Chimes” as the opener of “Side B”, and it would not be a bad choice either. The track list is more arbitrary than anything for tracks such as “Heroes and Villains”, “Cabin Essence”, “The Old Master Painter” “Do You Like Worms?”, and “I’m In Great Shape”.

Would you guys want to hear a stereo version of this mix?

Those of us who collect SMILE variations would be grateful for any additional versions you can make available...and I think that all credible versions of what we might call "the DUMB ANGEL version" of SMILE--the 12-track "non-suite" version that was clearly in the works in late '66 are worth the time and trouble, simply because they open up all the potential variations that might have come to pass, giving those interested in such conjecture a chance to make more concrete comparisons and judgments.

I've been listening to this mix a couple of times lately, and I got to say, I love this. Even though SMiLE was far from done the period in you've chosen, this would be one of the best and well made mixes they could've done if they were made to release what they've gathered so far.

I REALLY love the skits, that you actually made them fit so well into this. I also love the H&V-DYLW-CE mix you did. It actually sound reasonable! It flows into eachother so well. This would indeed make the WH we know a logical successor.

This gives a stronger "album-feel" than what the SMiLE Session provides IMO. Cudos! As with the others, I would also love a FLAC of this.

Thanks for the replies. I will prepare FLAC files after completing a stereo mix, which is going to be a rather extensive project.
