    A recording of Brian in Holland!  I found a link to this on
Susan's Shut Down board.  It has Brian trying to sing a song
apparently called "Little Child".  (I reprinted a version of the full
lyrics below.)  It also has Brian doing "Susie Cincinnati".  Now why
he would be doing this a few years after it was recorded and put on
the "B" side of a single?  In fact, why would he be doing it all since
it was supposedly an Al Jardine song?  Did Brian write some, or a lot,
of the tune?  Wouldn't surprise me if he did.  I hope you can download
it!

(Here's the intro to the tape from the website...)


When Brian Wilson and the other Beach Boys ,recorded Holland in
Holland, I lent Brian a small UHER reel to reel tape recorder, so he
could have something for ideas at home...
when i got it back, when he left for the usa again, it still had some
music and parts of a song on a tape.

here is that song... I have a feeling that it is not one of his own,
but that he simply liked it.

for an upload of your choice from the wall of tapes, (just ask,i may
have it )

who can tell me what that song is ?

it just struck me that nobody in the world has ever heard this, since
1970...

**********************



LITTLE CHILD

Daddy dear, tell me please, is the world really round?
Tell me where is the bluebird of happiness found?
Tell me why is the sky up above so blue?
And when you were a child did your daddy tell you
What becomes of the sun when it falls into the sea
And who lights it again bright as bright can be?
Tell me why can't I fly without wings through the skies?
Tell me why, Daddy dear, are there tears in your eyes?

Little one, little one, yes, the world's really round
And the bluebird you search for will surely be found
And the sky up above is so blue and clear so that
You'll see the bluebird if it should come near
And the sun doesn't fall when it slips out of sight
All it does is make way for the moon's pretty light
And if children could fly there'd be no need for birds
And I cry, little one, 'cause I'm touched by your words

Don't be sad, Daddy dear, if it's true the world's round
I will search 'round the world till the bluebird is found
Little one, there's no need to wander too far
For what you really seek is right here where you are
Show me where, Daddy dear, and here's what I will do
I will take the dear bluebird and give it to you
Dear, the bluebird's the love in your heart pure and true
And I found it the day heaven blessed me with you!"

I also found, at
http://www.dancingcat.com/dancingcat/notes/01934-11157-2.shtml the
following:

'Mon Enfant has an unknown origin. "I've heard it by guitarist Ralph
Towner and under the name Little Child, Daddy Dear by guitarist Wes
Montgomery and by bandleader Spike Jones," George says. "and also in a
movie. The first lines of the lyrics are 'Daddy dear, Daddy dear, is
the world really round?/Tell me where is the Bluebird of Happiness
found.' I don't know if it's originally French. I've been told there
are other versions, one on an old 78 rpm. If anybody knows more about
the history of this song, I'd like to know.

It's cool to hear his voice here. It's very "in between" the sweet voice and the gruff voice, exactly as you'd imagine.

Didn't work for me when I downloaded it; it was one of those files where you hit the play button and nothing happens.

Finally got it and, yeah, interesting bit of Brian noodling away. Not essential but nice. Probably never find it again though (where do my downloaded files go to?).

sounds great, i quickly edited a mono copy of it (just the right channel from the original) so it sounds fuller (since its playing on both left and right speakers now as oppose to just the right)...if anyone wants it.

Dan Lega,
     Thank you for sharing these songs, but I have a question. The first song you have titled as "Little Child". I was under the impression that this song was called "Patty Cake", a song about a gorilla or something. Certainly the lyrics you posted say nothing about a gorilla. I'm confused...

I believe someone along the way claimed it was "Pattycake" based on their own ears ("Daddy Dear, Daddy Dear" and "Pattycake, Pattycake" could sound a bit alike, especially muffled in the background while Marilyn is talking over it) -- but I don't think that claim was actually based on any fact...

"Thenitgoes" plink plink "thenitgoes".  Kind of an annoying speech habit, Brian.  I mean, we can pretty much assume that that's how it goes since you're playing it.

Maybe he's playing it for Al, kind of an acknowledgement that he likes Suzie.  Still unrealesed at that point.

I think it was already released as a B-side at that point.

BTW I'm just downloading a song called "Murry the beast" by Brian. Anyone know what this is? I can't hear it, since it's not finished and it someho doesn't work. Maybe it's Surfin USA and someone just named it "Murry the beast", but....

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.

Uh, it was the B side to Add Some Music in 1970....

Personally, I think Brian playing it ("Susie Cincinnati") on the piano solo sounds a lot better than the produced version. I love how Brian's voice slips into his '80s' voice at times. Also, its the first time I ever heard Brian curse, I think Razz

"Patty Cake" was reportedly written on Brian's trip to the NYC zoo after Murry died, in '73.
Which, if true, means it couldn't have been demoed in Holland in '72.

Unless the dope Brian was taking in Holland transported him psychically a year into the future...

Yes, I knew that.  When the song "Little Child" (I didn't know the title until this thread) was played on one of the documentaries, it was identified (incorrectly on this board in the recent past) as "Patty Cake", the confusion set in.

However, that raises the question, has anybody ever heard "Patty Cake"?

Ummmmm... I've listened with a spatializer plugged into the WinAmp, and I don't think it's Brian.

Sounds more like Alan to me.

Listened again - I'm 85% sure that's Alan.

BTW, before I cranked up the spatializer, i couldn't hear very much of anything.

Well it's definitely Brian on the piano.
It's Brian singing. I think the tape is sped up almost a semitone. You can even hear him smoking a cigarette.
That's a lovely little song.

The reason it sounds like Brian to me is because he sings a phrase or two, stops playing, sings a phrase, stops. You wish he would just play the whole song through without stopping! Brian still does that today when he's playing an impromtu song for somebody.

Makes me wonder if Brian had something to do with the writing of "Susie Cincinnati".

By the way, who is saying, "Ah, how are you all" at the very end?

At the end it sort of sounds like Dennis to me but I'm not positive.
