Thanks! The song is kind of an odd choice for Brian's current voice, as it sounds like he has to really push himself to project as the lead vocal demands. But still a cool clip.

Some gentleman collected all the legally available Paley tracks, and it's a hell of an album

For me the WP sessions were a revelation, that changed some idea I had previously about Brian.

I keep on liking the Long Promised Road soundtrack, quite a lot.
Sincerely, I was not hoping for any more Brian album. I still can't really believe that we got two, and completely different to boot.
What we got is very, very near to a hopeless dream I had since... well, almost ever. A double album where the first side is melancholy, quiet, quirky Brian and the second is gruff, upbeat, rockin' Brian.

The apparently kind of semi-inadvertent format of the LPR soundtrack (archival solo tracks mixed with more or less "new" tracks) might be a good way to move forward on further Brian albums, especially if they're not inclined to do a boxed set of rare Brian solo stuff. It would be way to get some new stuff out, get some archival stuff out, and potentially get better reviews/notices for "new" albums if they're back-filled with the best archival material instead of potentially kind of mediocre "new" stuff.

One of these every three or six months would be nice.

I am, maybe, the only one, but I like the new or newish tunes in the LPR soundtrack actually more, in general, than the tunes from the Paley sessions.

Some of the Paley tracks are mixed rather strangely. "Slightly American Music" sounds great, but "It's Not Easy Being Me" sounds really murky for some reason.

Are they really missing the multis on some of the Paley stuff to do proper remixes? It sure seems like they have multis on the two Brian/Beach Boys Paley tracks.

But in terms of quality, I think this album is all over the place, which I'm fine with. I love the idea of a dump of some archival tracks and some new-ish tracks, even if they're not all gems.

I said earlier in the thread that  "Rock and Roll Has Got a Hold On Me" kind of sounds like a more well-produced version of Mike's "This Too Shall Pass", but without the awful lyrics. And no, that is not particularly a huge compliment. I don't have much patience for the occasional "If Mike had released the same thing, everybody would hate it!" arguments made in fandom, but I can't deny that "R&R Has Got a Hold On Me" is pretty similar musically/backing track-wise to "This Too Shall Pass." Brian's track is of course just innocuous at worst, whereas Mike's track of course adds a whole layer of misplaced pathos ("it's kinda like a viral super bowl"). But the Mike track was the first thing that popped into my mind when I heard the Brian track.

The other relatively recent covers are cool curios, but I can't say I'll come back to them often. The fact that Brian chose to revisit "It's OK" after nary a peep for years is more interesting than his actual re-recording of it.

The title track with Jim James is really by far the most *interesting* of the new songs.

RRHGHOM is a (fantastic imho) repackaging and "completion" of "Country Feelings", a hidden gem of Brian's. I don't hear so much the similarity with the Mike tune, also due to the much gruffer delivery by Brian.

According to ESQ, Al isn’t on the new recordings? That may have been reported here before but is news to me. Does anyone know why? Was Al on tour with his storytelling shows at the time? Thanks!!

Just a reminder that the Long Promised Road Soundtrack is available on physical CD now. And from now, I consider the promise of the "rock 'n' roll album" fulfilled. Smiley

The CD appears to be out of stock on the Walmart site, there's one copy on Amazon for $30+ and none on eBay. I hope they stock up on these soon, I need a copy!
