(Sssshhh.....keep it quiet but still available in NZ)

Wait maybe I was wrong it seems to be working now. I must have clicked on another one of my almost 200 open tabs and assumed it was this one that got pulled for copyright. Carry on.  Grin

A very nice cleaned up video and audio of not just the campfire segments, but every Beach Boys appearance and Brian solo segments in the series. Nice job as usual DJ L33.

Itís only taken 30 years but someone has put the campfire sessions together in a very watchable clip. Enjoy now in case itís taken down.
Thank you Dan Thomas Music.

In case YT does eventually take this one down, you can download the video itself by putting the link above into this address:

I'm the man on the mountain, come on up.
I'm the plowman in the valley with a face full of mud.
Yes, I'm fumbling and I know my car don't start.
Yes, I'm stumbling and I know I play a bad guitar.

Give me little drink from your loving cup.
Just one drink and I'll fall down drunk.

Surreal to see Brian strutting the stage like Mick Jagger... or at least Mike Love (in leather pants? and a double-breasted blazer).  The Landy era was weird.  Everyone pretty much agrees that Landy was over-medicating and improperly medicating (and was an overall crappy person), but the popular conception of how Brian was during that period is somewhat inconsistent with what we see in this video. 

And, thinking about it, isn't that sort of true of almost every period?  Brian supposedly "out of it" post-Smile, 1968-70, and then an interview will surface and he sure doesn't sound "out of it."    Ditto for various other periods in the '70s, '80s.    Funny how reality is often more complicated than the official or unofficial narrative.

Ok, I was actually at that concert.  Brian's actual appearance on stage was brutal. BRUTAL. Physically he looked good, yes. But Landy was using him like a trained Bear.  The audience couldn't understand a word he was singing (this was all dubbed in post production) and his strutting?  As a Beach Boys and Brian hard-core fan, I was really embarrassed and hard pressed to explain it to the casual fans in my group.  They didn't know WHAT was going on.

Wow, thanks for the first-hand report.  Such a strange period in BB history.    

Then again...  What wasn't a strange period in BB history?  Maybe 1962?  LOL

There's an audience recording of the show floating around somewhere, and I recall that Brian really butchers "In My Car" in particular. What we see/hear on the TV show seems to be a mixture of pre-recorded studio elements, and then some if not most or all of Brian's live vocal replaced with a re-record.

Brian did that little mini solo set at some some shows in 1989. Truly bizarre. They get Brian back for shows, but apart from a few things ("Surfer Girl"), they literally segregate, with the band doing most of their set without Brian, and then Brian doing his set without the band (with some of the backing guys staying on stage).

Correct.  He also performed "Country Feelins"--bad idea.
