I don't know if it's me or the book but since a few months my copy hasn't any pics more.  Razz 

Good book but it could have include a lot more info. At least, I'm not the only one who likes "Looking Back With Love".  Cool Guy

4 out of 5.

No, it couldn't - the contract specified a set length and I didn't want anyone else editing my text.

Oh. Okay, let's say it would have been nice if there was more info.  Smiley

Still just 4 points.  Razz

British caustic humor…there’s nothing like it, and this book is entertainingly loaded with it.

You may not agree with the criticism of each BB song, but you’ll laugh out loud reading some of them.

I was going to razz Mr. Doe on his annihilation of Carl Wilson’s solo work, but when I learned that Mr. Doe had to listen to Summer in Paradise three times as research for this book, I figured he’s suffered enough.

Great book at a great price!

POB is covered in the 2004 update, along with the other solo albums (warning - you might not like what I have to say about Looking Back With Love), and later this year I intend to post corrections/updates/additions ion a new section of the 10452 website.

Slight problem with my web host - they withdrew all support to the free webspace. Without telling anyone. Ergo, since mid-November, can't update 10452. Angry

Now why would i consider starting a new topic? And call it Andrew Doe's Complete Guide To The Music Of The Beach Boys, Part Two, I suppose...

On that subject, what happened to John Tobler's co-authorship? said he glancing at the tiny print on the front cover. Just an idle question, really.

It would be wonderful if this essential reference work were to be updated and reissued. It's a book one would have no compunction about taking on holiday. In fact, I have done just that in the past----which is probably why the eight-page colour section is falling out.

5/5

Love Andrew's book.

I don't agree with him on everything - the awesome Funky Pretty gets an unexpectedly negative write-up, whereas Looking Back With Love is praised to the skies (what's that about?) - but he more often than not hits the nail on the head and I love his humour. British humour really is the best in the world and Andrew does it well.

I think Andrew was grading LBWL on the curve. He's not saying it is a masterpiece or anything, but that (considering the artist's veteran-era track record) it is a record that he did not expect enjoying.

It's none of my business, I know, but why is John Tobler credited as co-author if it's AGD's Complete Guide?

A PM will do. Don't be shy now. Surely it can't be that bad!

Andrew's posted about it before. Basically, Tobler got the book deal because he was a known name. But AGD did the vast majority of the work.

Okay, thanks, Wirestone. This is a big, big place and it's often hard to find that kind of information...

Would love to... however, Omnibus hold the copyright, and leasing it back to me to do a self-published revision just wasn't feasible on several levels: a proposed Kindle version didn't fly either. Best I could probably do is to do a new section of 10452 devoted to corrections and additions to the 2004 version, and new releases 2004-2015 in the existing format.

Maybe you could negotiate the return of the coyright, at least temporarily, in exchange for some percentage of rights to an updated/ reworked version?
