I think I recall the title Metropolis…but I wonder if that eventually came out as half moon bay.

Different titles in the BMI database.

At the time, Rolling Stone reported that Brian was recording three separate albums. One with Beck, largely instrumental, one with female guest singers, and one with Al and Blondie. We ended up getting an album was was a mixture of the latter two, but nothing of the first.
I might be wrong but I seem to recall hearing that Half Moon Bay was intended for the Beck album?

From what I recall, Half Moon Bay wasn’t given as a title until the NPP album was formally announced.

They recorded way more songs than appeared on the record, including one called “He Come Down” that explicitly wasn’t a remake, but a new tune with Blondie taking the lead.

Jeff Becks band around the time also was in the studio with the Brian Wilson project. I believe it was confirmed that originally Run James Run was a part of that with an Al lead vocal. Metropolis, as I recall, was Beck playing some moody guitar and Al singing some sort of na-na-na chant. I doubt it has anything to do with Half Moon Bay, but who knows. I really wish all this stuff would be released along with the TWGMTR-outtakes. Biggest bummer is we don't even know much about anything about these tracks! Just a lot of teasing and then nothing. There must be a lot of cool little things in the vault. I hope we get to hear them some day.

Can someone arrange another interview with Joe Thomas ?
