There was definitely tension that day. Watch carefully and you can see Dennis send a drumstick flying and it hits Mike in the leg.

Maury povitch aired that day but was probably taped earlier. I think they played more songs


Ok, thank you! So that was something different to this.




That performance of "BTTYS" is definitely from the National Cheerleading Competition show - I saw the original broadcast and remember it well. The hosts were (then couple) Victoria Principal and Andy Gibb. The Boys also performed "Surfin' U.S.A." during the closing credits roll.

Thanks! Do you know if that was directly after BTTYS or later? At the end of the video they are still on "stage".

Dennis broke sticks constantly because of his playing style. I don't think he threw it at Mike's direction consciously. On the other hand, Dennis DID try to push his drum kit onto Mike once.. so who knows...

The Beach Boys performance was split into two segments, one in the middle and one at the end. Most likely though they were taped back-to-back and then split during editing.

Ok, I see. I guess I will put it on the list then.

I probably have more information on this but haven’t had time to look in my files-obviously a strange time in the band with Carl gone and Brian called upon to take a larger vocal role-which he really wasn’t up to at the time. Add to that the continual tension between teetotaler mike and out of control Dennis and you have a combustible stew

That two-song appearance on the National Cheerleader show is probably the only video in existence of the band where Dennis is the only Wilson present.

Yeah-on camera they only performed those two songs.  The whole show was on Youtube a while ago-but not anymore

I just went through the list and realized that as far as I see we don't have the AOL sessions by Brian mentioned. Does anybody have the date for this?

EDIT:

And do we know when and where the Pet Sounds set by Brian and Al in 2016 was done? Did they play the whole album or just a couple of songs?

Great! I didn't know that one was filmed. Thank you!


EDIT: Phew, man that was rough.... They do sound better normaly, don't they? This one had echoes of the early 2000s   Embarrassed
And what happened during the ending of GOK? It seems like the "everyone, everyone" from Carl in Knebworth is being heard. But just that, the rest is Christian Love.

Yeah that was a bit rough. They definitely sound better usually.
I wonder if they had to use the house engineer rather than their own.

I noticed they played the "early mix" ending of GV with the flute. When did they start playing that?

It sounds to me like the monitoring was bad. I've never heard Cowsill play WIBN so darn slowly! There had to be some tech issues. It's almost like they can't hear each other properly, and therefore aren't intonated as a band.

Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring sounded wonderful though. The harmonies were stellar. I love how clearly I could hear each guys voice. Mike & Bruce really shone on this song.

As for the outro of Good Vibrations, I think they've been playing it that way (gradually increasing the intensity, and note for note perfection) since 2016.

Also if you told me, when I saw Mike in August, that at his age, he'd hop off the stage, I'd have told you you were crazy. but there he was on Barbara Ann, jumping off the stage. Pretty cool.

There were definitely some rough spots, but by the outro of Fun Fun Fun they were cooking! I'll never get sick of hearing Bruce do that falsetto outro.

I think you guys are being a little harsh on this video.  Keep in mind this was probably done in a not so acoustic friendly environment.   Also after reviewing the video you can see that Cowsill was missing the mid-tom drum that he usually gigs with which definitely would alter his playing essentially on all the songs on the set.  I'm willing to bed the set up was sub par at best, however to my ears they still sounded fine.

Looking at this picture, it seems that this show was also (partially) filmed. But does anyone know more:

Looks like the Hyde Park 1972 concert.  Three songs ("Do It Again", "Wild Honey" with Blondie on lead, "Help Me Rhonda" with Carl on lead) aired for a TV special.

That's a good guess! IIRC there where two shows performed (and possibly filmed). So this would be the not used footage then.

i don’t think it’s the hyde show. the clothes are different. dennis’ hair is shorter in the pic and the stage is different. to me the pic is from another show.
and the two shows you are thinking about was in 1971 at central park.

I believe there where also two shows played in 1972 at Hyde Park but one was quite rainy. This one doesn't look like there's any rain, so yeah, probably another one.

Yes, probably Toni Tennille. It's funny, I never really saw her on a picture of the band from this time, but here she is quite noticeable.






That seems about right, perfect! You can see the camera guy here as well.

It's Boston, August '72. Billy is playing bass (in the background, second from the left), as he did on that one tour, and Charles Lloyd is there shaking maracas (he wasn't touring with them yet, but guested at that Boston show - oddly, only shaking things, not blowing, as Mike said he didn't bring any of his plumbing). Daryl and Toni were there, and the Boys were joined by the Boston Philharmonic for the second set. Audio is out there. I'm thinking maybe the film camera guy was from the local news station?

This song looks to be "Heroes And Villains". You can see Daryl bent over at the vibes, and what seems to be a roll of tape resting on them! Interestingly, they opened that show with "Marcella". Also, they played both "Only With You" (just recorded in Holland, but not yet released), and "Cuddle Up" (with the Philharmonic, in the second half).

If it is H&V then it's probably during the acapella (sunny down snuff) part, because Ricky is holding his sticks in one hand and not playing.


EDIT: They also played f@cking "Here she comes" at that show! Oh man, I hope there is footage somewhere  Shocked
Look at that setlist:
