Oh Holy Moly, just when you think you know everything Beach Boys this set comes out and blows you out of the bath with the bathwater. Everything about this set is bold, clear and amazing. Look what they did with e.g Soulful Old Man Sunshine! I mean, there's an additional 2 great albums of outakes in addition to Sunflower and Surf's Up. It's literally mind-boggling how creative and productive this group was in 1969/1971! It's crazy that a man of the musical talent Dennis had was never fully allowed or able to share it with the world until POB, by which time it was already getting too late for him.

Wowee. Perks of living in Oceania

Highlights for me so far:

- All I Wanna Do acapella
- All the Dennis stuff. I'm Going Your Way, Barbara, & It's a New Day new mixes sound great. Behold the Night, Hawaiian Dream - stunning!! Baby Baby was slightly disappointing though.
- Won't You Tell Me demo with organ with Brian vocal is actually beautiful - that arrangement works great on its own (in a minimalist way like Be Still), and the original lyrics are better.
- Til I Die alt lyrics - obviously not superior, but interesting to hear.

Wonder if the 2019 mix of Going Your Way with the double tracked lead vocal will be available again? Surprised it's not on the set - maybe it'll be on a 'leftovers' type digital release like Sunshine Tomorrow 2.

Sonically this thing sounds far better than my already high expectations. That bass in My Solution! Wow. I’m floored.

Looking like all the tracks are just straight available for listen now on the Beach Boys official Youtube. Not listed, but searchable. Tempting not to just dive right in, but I will wait.

Straight to disc 5. Wow wow wow.

The Surf's Up 1st movement 1971 remake is really odd.
The Soulful Old Man Sunshine 2019 mix sounds *very* different. Was Don Ralke part of the writer credits on the original Endless Harmony release?

A small detail: "Sobra las olas" should actually read "Sobre las olas"

Is it just me or does Soulful Old Man Sunshine have a totally different vocal take? He doesn't say "shunshine" on this one, which seems to against that being the reason why Carl didn't want it out.

I think my favourite thing here is Old Movie. It was always obvious that setting an orchestra loose on Make It Good was a mistake, but I now feel it was no less so on Cuddle Up.

I think It’s Natural is one of my favorites here. Should have been finished. I love the vibe and instrumental here.

One of my favorite bits so far is the backing track of "When Girls Get Together"; it's just pure Brian. The instrumental/bg vocals version of "A Day in the Life of a Tree" is stunning too and "Marcella - a capella" is another highlight.

Great to read the first series of personal impressions now - and the tempo they're coming in is just so entertaining; it's not often that just hitting the 'refresh page' button makes sense, but now it does seriously so.

I will go purchase the physical 5CD-set later in the day (it's 9 AM here in Holland); and all your posts really whet the appetite, so to speak.

So: keep 'em coming, people!

It's crazy that a man of the musical talent Dennis had was never fully allowed or able to share it with the world until POB, by which time it was already getting too late for him.



Yes, IMO the Dennis material is the clear standout on this set, even amidst so much other wonderful music and mixes. "Ecology", with "All of My Love", the stunning "run, run, river run" section combined with what were previously known on various circulating tapes and boots as "Piano Duets" and the high-pitched "Quad instrumental" is just staggeringly beautiful when it finally puts it all together, as is the "Quadrex session" piece, also sometimes called "Carry Me to the Sea" which was often lumped in with the other fragments, but has now been fleshed out and given its rightful title "Before". "I've Got a Friend" is fragile and lovely, making one fervently wish that Dennis had made it a priority to lay down a vocal. Maybe someone will be brought it to give it a Taylor Hawkins "Holy Man" treatment someday. "Behold the Night" is an absolute gem, at least the first part, "Hawaiian Dream" is music to supremely relax by, but somehow "Old Movie" really brought tears to my eyes, thinking of his beautiful spirit and unfulfilled potential. It's important to try to see that particular glass as half full as much as possible, but he had so much to offer the world and for various reasons his talent didn't see its full fruition. This release really adds a lot to his legacy, as well as being chock-full of amazing remixes and other jewels. Many thanks to Alan, Mark, Howie, Stephen et al for their superb work, and fighting for its release. Just saw in an interview with Boyd and Linett that work on Carl & the Passions, Holland and live early '70s Carnegie Hall sets is already underway!

Amen to that!

I haven't been as thrilled about a retrospective Beach Boys release since those wonderful days of SOT boots - that moment of receiving a physical package shipped from Singapore, opening it and rushing to the CD player. This set really does pick up from where SOT boots left off ... 20 plus years and worth the wait to get it right. So excited about the next two years - So Tough, Holland and In Concert. Thrill me. Chill me. Complete me.

Thank gents!!

I have a feeling that the live version of Back Home is an edit of more than one performance. I don't know of any time where Brian and Al did a duet like that.
