I thought that one was saved for the SIP sessions set  Grin

No. That one will be called Oh Brother.

Personally, I would love them to go with more of the lyrical nod to the project naming (a la Sunshine Tomorrow), though I suppose I can understand why they wouldn't.

Ooh they could call the next one “Beyond Tomorrow”.

How about a nod to "Annie" with "Sunshine's Gonna Come Out Tomorrow"? Or not....

"Steamboat: The music of the Beach Boys, 1972-74"

I'm liking it! Uh, I guess....high obscurity factor, at least. Of course, some fans might think they're shelling out big bucks for a classic Jerome Kern musical adaptation, or a Mark Twain-penned musical saga set on the Mighty Mississipp.

If they attempt a Summer in Paradise box set, all three of Mark, Alan and Howie may need a therapist…

They'll all emerge from their mixing/editing rooms with shell shock, battle fatigue, a glazed look and the dreaded thousand-yard stare a la Syd Barrett.

Cancel, cancel....

California Saga would also be a good simple but appropriate title.

Yes, that would be a good name for it. It follows "Feel Flows" a bit more tongue-trippingly than "SOS" upon 1st consideration.

“Sail On, Sailor” UNINSPIRED??? Yikes! 

To be fair to the OP, it's not ever said that the song "Sail On Sailor" is uninspiring, merely that the use of that title for a box set is uninspired. I read that as unimaginative, and I think it's a fair call. I'd prefer "Funky Pretty" or "Spark In The Dark" or even something that comes from the fairy tale 'lyrics'.

Not trying to drag this back into a debate or anything, but the original post in question said:

"Is the next set really going to be titled "Sail On Sailor"? Kind of uninspired, much like the song itself."

I don't know how that can be read any other way than saying the title is uninspired, and also that the "song itself" is inspired. To each their own of course, but somebody does appear to feel the *song* is uninspired.

Or it could be a clumsily expressed reference to the line "uninspired, drenched and tired".

So Giggens was talking about Al rerecording the bass for seasons in the sun and that could've been a possible factor for the set to be pushed back. Do you guys think that could be the case? I mean, it really doesn't matter anymore but, hey, I'm curious  Roll Eyes

Nothing like that was behind the hang-up/delay discussed last year.

The Beach Boys’ archival set Feel Flows: The Sunflower & Surf’s Up Sessions – 1969-1971 debuts at No. 9 on Top Album Sales with 10,000 sold. It’s just the second top 10 for the band since the Top Album Sales chart launched in 1991. The group previously hit the region with the 2012 studio album That’s Why God Made the Radio, which debuted and peaked at No. 3 (June 23, 2012-dated chart).

Nice! And hey, it would've been 10,001 if my order wasn't cancelled!  Smiley

This isn't the actual Billboard Top 200 albums chart, but something based (I assume) on sales rather than airplay and streams -- no doubt making it more favourable to a release like FF. Still cool though.

That's very cool news!

I gotta ask this about "Marcella": Is this the master take? To me it sounds different to the master but maybe there was more work done for that. The "ooohhhh" in the beginning made me wonder at first if this is the vocal track for the "In Concert" version, but I guess it isn't.

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.

What's weird is that the article notes it's the second time the band has hit the Top 10 since the advent of the "Top Album Sales" chart in 1991, yet it cites the #3 debut for "That's Why God Made the Radio", which I believe was actually in the full-blown main "Billboard 200" album chart.

The way these charts are tabulated, and which albums can go where, has changed so many times over the years. Add to that the fact that streaming vs. sales as measures for success has changed drastically even since TWGMTR in 2012. Which is probably why Billboard mentioned the TWGMTR comparison, because neither the "Top Sales" chart nor the current "Top 200" charts particularly resemble what the "Top 200" chart constituted back even ten years ago, let alone more.

I think selling 10,000 copies in one week of a set that goes for up to $125 is great; this are good numbers for a multi-disc archival BB set.

In terms of the industry, the "main" album chart is this one:

https://www.billboard.com/charts/billboard-200

This is the main "Top 200" chart, which counts actual unit sales as well as uses a formula to equate streams to sales. I think it's 1,250 streams from a paid subscription service that equal 1 sold unit, and 3,750 streams from ad-supported services equal 1 sold unit.

Yeah, that's correct.

The album chart would be more up The Beach Boys alley. Most with any interest in listening to 'feel flows' would be inclined to buy it and not stream it.

I'm pretty sure they count each disc in a boxset towards the total sold count which is why some companies like including a bonus disc to boost sales figures.   If I'm correct, the total number of boxset sales would be approx. 2,000 which seems more realistic.
