I can't recall if it was Jerry who got very emotional over Sunflower in a Beach Boys documentary

Fred Vail. When he went into the radio station and asked the promoter and his old friend to play add some music to your day or whatever it was and the guy looked at him and said the beach boys aren’t hip anymore which is when Fred Val got emotional

This was in the first Brian Wilson Songwriter documentary for anyone interested. It is such a sad but powerful moment - emotional is the right word to describe that moment, but it cuts much deeper - you can really tell just how deeply that moment affected him. After all these years and he is still very broken up it. Goes to show just how much he cared about those guys and their music.

That clip was always disturbing to me. Especially when Fred goes “well, my friend is dead and the BB are still here.” Like, is Fred saying that the DJ dying was karmic punishment for not playing a new BB record on the radio in 1970?

I think that's a bit of a drastic interpretation. I suspect he's just making the point that the Beach Boys well and truly survived that low point in their career.

Is the next set really going to be titled "Sail On Sailor"? Kind of uninspired, much like the song itself. Wouldn't "Leaving This Town" be a thousand times more fitting? The song is one of their proggiest, a Blondie/Ricky offering, and an underrated highlight, not to mention the group had "left town" in '72, both literally and musically.

I'd wager part of titling something "Sail on Sailor" would be that it's, by leaps and bounds, the most recognizable song title from this era.

And um, yeah, I can't say I've met a ton of Beach Boys fans who would describe the song as "uninspired."

I think it would be something like:

Sail on Sailor is the most recognizable song title from this window of time; if a "casual" fan could ever name or at least recognize a song from this era, that would be the one. It's a title that can be thematic enough for such a set (they continued to "sail on"; they kept working and making and releasing music!). The song title hasn't previously been used for any high profile compilations or sets. It's representative of one of the major changes of this era; having Blondie and Ricky in the band having Blondie especially present vocally.

In terms of marketing, if they didn't go with this title, then I wouldn't even see a reason to bother using another song title. At that point, just start coming up with new names. "Shaved Fish", whatever. I mean, we're not going for like exposé, blunt, negative, gritty titles. I don't think a working title for "Feel Flows" was ever "One Big Hyped Up Lie!"

"Sail on Sailor" makes perfect sense to me.

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'.

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

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”.

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

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.

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