  Having bought the '93 set on the day of issue, which was also described in similar terms to 'game changer' ...
I happened to be visiting EMI's UK factory while they were pressing it!

Okay, I've done some calculating.  The set is supposed to be five CD's.  So with about 80 minutes per CD, that adds up to 400 minutes.

And I just tallied all the times on the tracklist above and the total comes out to be about 263 minutes and 20 seconds.

So that leaves 135+ minutes left over.  So we could easily be missing 2 hours and 10+ minutes of music from the set!  That's a lot of material that could be very revelatory!

So, okay, I'm feeling a little better about the prospects for this set.  Thanks again, Howie, for keeping us updated.


PS -- Of course a question many have been asking: is the set going to include remixes of the albums?  I don't know how long each album is, but we would have to subtract those running lengths from the total above.  I, for one, hope that they don't include remixes of the albums in the set, because I want more room for unreleased material, sessions, and backing and vocal tracks.  Of course it would be nice if they would rerelease the albums separately with new mixes!


Love and merci,
Dan Lega





Good work Dan.

I count 29 blanks [see previous page] - so that averages just over 3 minutes per unknown track, about what you'd expect. Plus I stopped at 122 because there are no entries above that in the ISRC numbering registered yet, but that doesn't mean that there might not be a few numbered above 122 which are yet to be registered. A very real possibility. - Maybe that solves the mystery regarding the live disc - but maybe it's just a short show, not a full live disc. It would also mean the average length comes down.

I've got my fingers crossed for this to be released before my next big holiday which will be mid-May. Relaxing on the beach, listening to the Beach Boys sounds like a plan.  Smiley

I personally think that if they re-remaster the albums again, then they will be separate releases. I mean let's face it, if you're buying this box, you've probably got two or three releases of Sunflower and Surf's Up already in your collection. [Some smileysmilers might even have as many as ten of each!]

I just don’t get why there is literally zero marketing or word of mouth. This is realistically aimed at the hardcore fans. Why be so in the dark about it? Hopefully the new entity buying the group will be better - because this is pathetic. Who cares if we are lucky/privileged enough to know the release date or track listing ‘early’. Not like anyone but US will buy it.

I don't think it's been officially announced yet. It's only through word of mouth that we know anything about it. I join you however in hoping there is a good marketing strategy in place for when it is announced, because as Howie has stated more than once, people NEED to hear this set.

Rebel, the new entity buying the group is logically the reason for there not being any word yet.

Also, the last time The Beach Boys released a major studio-album boxset they pushed the release date back about 2-3 times. So with The Beach Boys possibly remembering that incident they're perhaps making sure this thing is 100% completed before any official word gets out. And I realize that Feel Flows was apparently all ready to go over the summer, but Howie mentioned late-November that he did a recent interview with Brian for the project - so apparently they were adding more to the project post-summer (even if it was just more interview material).

Regardless, since Howie hasn't been raising any alarm bells I am confident that things are going smoothly behind the scenes. But it is awesome to see a lot of excitement for the set! Can't wait to hear this music.

Well, there's plenty word of mouth among the hardcore fans on the boards. That's how we advocated for the set last year.

As explained in the ten thousand posts earlier in this thread, the whole situation was sensitive and it was only late last year that things finally got freed up to let this thing come out. That's essentially when the timeline for the release sort of re-started.

You don't know a release date, so you don't know when any sort of promotional campaign or press release with details would be coming. They've *never* announced track listings like six or nine months before a release.

We all want this thing out. We all know about it, and hopefully even more will know about it when the time is right.

Was Van Dyke Parks interviewed for the set? A while ago, he indicated on Twitter that no interview took place. Maybe one took place since?

Not sure Van Dyke's input to the 1970-71 works was particularly massive - I dare say he was trying to avoid the Beach Boys scene at that time - but it's entirely possible that I should go back and have a read of the relevant literature on that.

[I know that a couple of SMiLE remnants surfaced on Sunflower & Surf's Up, but I doubt Van Dyke was consulted or had any involvement].

As far as I know, he helped convince Warner/Reprise to sign the band, IIRC.  That could be fairly important, and he could also have stories regarding "A Day in the Life of a Tree" (or "Sail On, Sailor" if a 1971 version has been located in the vaults).

True, and if the early demo of Sail On Sailor forms any part of this set, then that alone would justify an interview with him.

Hi Ed....does your welcome return perhaps pre-empt any imminent, official news on the Feel Flows box set?

Here’s hoping.

This is Mike Love advertising a WORLD TOUR for the boxset. It is more than something - it is confirmation that everyone is 100% onboard with the release of this set in 2021. They can't really go back now, so we're getting the set. This is huge news for any doubters and naysayers. Yes a press release would be phenomenal, but this is confirmation that we will be getting a press release soon (it's already March and 2021 is already flying by...before you know it we'll all be dusting off our CD players and cranking up the hi-fi sets, listening to the music and reading the incredible booklet that will accompany this set).

Ever since Howie gave us the good news (and especially since his last update in November) I've been completely confident we'd be seeing this set. I hope that Mike Love announcing a world tour for the set would be just as good news to everyone else.

edit: as1972, thanks for sharing that! This is truly wonderful to hear.

Makes me wonder if Brian will start doing a show or two to promote this set.

We'd been told several times since the new year that the box set was on track.

That Mike is touring a Feel Flows tour really adds nothing to what we knew.

It is at least an improvement on Mike's flat out denial during our despondent phase.

And that is why I propose we lock the thread now and don't discuss anything else about it. Even when we get a tracklist, or when it is released, there will be no point discussing it since we already knew the set was on track.
