I would say early '72, when Bruce, Blondie, and Ricky were all in the band...Daryl and Toni...and Dennis sometimes playing keyboards. Just to see who played bass on which songs would be worth it! Smiley



Works for me too...

Honestly, I would do anything to be able to go back in time and see Carl live.  Preferably in the late 60s or early 70s but honestly, anytime, anyplace.  My biggest Beach Boys regret is that I never saw him perform.  

That's my biggest regret, too. I wish I had seen Dennis, but he died when I was 19 and I was just a casual fan. I didn't become a hard-core fan until the first set of two-fers came out in 1990. But as I became a hard-core fan I also became a dumb snob who didn't want to see Mike prance around. And so I never saw Carl. And when I did see Mike, at C50 in 2012, he was great -- as was the whole band.

I have a clear choice, but first here are some runners-up, many of which have been mentioned.

-- A 1963 Carl, Dennis, Mike, Dave and Al show to document that brief period.

-- A 1964 show with Brian in his prime. That Australian "What I Say" show someone mentioned sounds like a great concert, and I'd love top see Australia.

-- The "Good Vibrations" debut in Michigan with Brian watching from the wings.

-- The 1970 Whiskey A Go-Go show when Brian got on stage.

-- Carnegie Hall in 1972.

-- 1980 Knebworth. They were great, and Dennis being back added so much.

-- Someone on the road crew (I think) told a story of a 1983 show when Brian was playing one of his first shows back and Dennis sang (at least part of) "He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother' to him. If that happened, I would have loved to have seen that.

But my choice would have to be this one. The Boys kicked ass, and boy was there more to see.

....with a pretty average rugby team. Go the All Blacks!!!!  LOL

But to keep on topic. The Sydney performance of ‘What I Say’ is great. https://youtu.be/OMFsy9fIaqQ

And although I probably didn’t appreciate it at the time, I feel blessed to have seen Dennis once and Carl several times after in concert. Very fortunate given what happened to them both.

Wembley Stadium 1975 opening for Elton John. Just to see if their performance really was that good that particular day.

I'm with you on this one. I have heard the recordings of it, and I would have loved seeing this show. I also wish I was older to have seen the first concert with the original members of both Chicago and The Boys. I saw them during the second time they toured together, it was good. But not seeing Terry, Peter, and Dennis on stage with the bands it was heartbreaking.

2. The Australian Concert where they played What I Say, so I can finally put to rest who is singing lead.

And who was playing sax. Grin

Which shows? Hmm.

I'd have liked to see the March 27, 1965 show at Arie Crown Theater in Chicago. You had Brian near the height of his powers, singing "Please Let Me Wonder" and the band really sounding great.

I'd say 1967 Hawaii shows would be great to see for obvious reasons. I know that for years some "insiders" had pushed this whole thing that they sounded like sh*t, but I don't hear it when I listen to the Hawaii material from the 1967 - Live Sunshine set. "Heroes and Villains" sounded awesome and crazily enough I thought that "Barbara Ann" truly rocked.

The February 28, 1970 show at the Seattle Opera House is of obvious interest to me as well, with Brian rejoining the live group since Mike Love was not there. Surely would've been interesting to see.

From there, well...a choice Blondie and Ricky era show in like 1972 would be nice. Any later '70s shows with an engaged Brian would also be cool. From the '80s on, I think Live Aid might have been cool to see the guys at. I also would've liked to see the 1995 Las Vegas performance where Brian sang "Don't Worry Baby" in the original key (if memory serves), with help from Matt Jardine. After that, I guess I'd have to say the final show of C50 in 2012 would've been amazing.

Come on guys - pick ONE.  Make it hard on yourselves.  Pick the ONE show you'd go back in time if asked right now.  You only get one. 

Whiskey November 4, 1970 with all six of them would be my choice.

I get you, but 30 minutes of surf/ car/ covers compared to what was to come?

I’ll stick with the St James University (above) with the add-on of the BW presents Smile concert I did attend.

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.

The November 1970 Whisky stand's been mentioned upthread, and yesterday/today mark the 49th anniversaries of Brian's show-and-a-half appearance.

I'll take November 4, 1970 as my answer, because it's apparently the first time the six-man-with-Bruce iteration played a full set together, and the idea of watching Brian trade off on Moog synth with Capt. Dragon is too good to pass up.

Badman's book has a tantalizing photo of the November 4 show, and a quick Google of Getty images revealed something I never caught before: Carl shaves his beard DURING the four-night stand! He's fully bearded during Brian's gigs, and plays at least one show with a Kirk Gibson-trademark three-day growth. Weird.

Attached below, an alternate colour photo from the B&W in Badman's book. (Original Twitter link is here: https://twitter.com/beachboyslegacy/status/794995385257304064)


And here's a link to the Getty/Michael Ochs pics from that week. Some head-scratching pics in there (was the photog taking pics upside down?) amid a few keepers.

Does anyone know if the version of Jumpin Jack Flash that is floating around youtube is the one that was going to be included on the original concert album, or if it was a different one?  From a legacy standpoint I wish the original version had been released.  Wild Honey and Jumpin Jack Flash on the same album?  All that's missing is a Dennis song.

May 11, 1973 at SUNY Delhi in Delhi, NY. My parents attended when my mother was 6 months pregnant with me. The music made me restless so she had to sit outside and listen from a hallway.
