Hello all,

Phil Miglioratti (of the Pray for Surf blog) and I have just released a new podcast in which we are joined by Philip Lambert, editor of Good Vibrations: Brian Wilson and The Beach Boys in Critical Perspective and author of Inside the Music of Brian Wilson, to each come up with an album's worth of earlier Beach Boys songs/Brian Wilson productions that anticipate the 1966 masterpiece in terms of sound, structure, theme, anything. Some of the selections are what you might expect, while others might surprise. I mean, "Cuckoo Clock," really? Have a listen at the following link and please let us know what you think: https://archive.org/details/petsoundsprequelolambertpodcastosurfsup

Very nice listen!

Here is mine:

1. California Girls (musically similar to Wouldn't It Be Nice with a magical intro)
2. Yours So Go To Me (Similar phrase to You Still Believe in Me and the organ bass has a similar tune to the plucked piano strings)
3. When I Grow Up (Another great song with mostly Beach Boys on instruments like That's Not Me)
4. In the Back of My Mind (Powerful orchestrations and no vocal harmonies)
5. Let Him Run Wild (similar up beat ballad to I'm Waiting for the Day and a similar lyrical meaning)
6. Summer Means New Love (another beautiful instramental like Let's Go Away for Awhile)
7. Back Home (folk song like Sloop John B. I thought about Swanee River, but doesn't stack up production wise)

8. The Warmth of the Sun (similar power and beauty as God Only Knows)
9. The Little Girl I Once Knew (I couldn't really find a match for IKTAA, but I really wanted this song on the album)
10. Wendy (has a music strangeness and lyric similar to Here Today)
11. In My Room (The closest thing to an in perspective Brian like IWMFTT)
12. Stoked (Pet Sounds is kind of a surf instrumental, and Stoked is my favorite original by the BB)
13. Please Let Me Wonder (This could have also been Guess I'm Dumb for Caroline No)

Wow, MTR. Great list. Some smart suggestions we didn't include.
