If you're on a Mac, get yourself Audio Hijack Pro.... very good.

I'd recommend WireTap Pro over AHP on the Mac.

Speaking of anachronistic synth sounds, did anybody else notice that at the end of the line "a reason to live, to live, to live..." in Oxygen to the Brain, there is what sounds like some sort of old sampler being employed - the harmonies behind the lead vocal are being pitch shifted deliberately, sort of sounds like an old E-MU Sampler

It's this wonderful combination of Love You style lyrics, odd 80s instrumental touches (that synth break!) and a Today-era chorus.

Just astonishing as a creation, and far more ambitious than many of the actual TLOS songs.

And the best part is: these days this is probably as close to a "pure" Brian song as it gets and it's nowhere near as insipid and uninspired as most of the stuff we got to hear on GIOMH. On the contrary, it sounds very spirited and presentable. This just seems like an honest glimpse into the world of BW writing songs that "went number one in his living room".

If you're using a PC and Firefox then get the Downloadhelper add-on, then it's very easy to download the MP3.

I want a whole album in the style of Message Man. I love it. The most complete BW since Love You.

I like the spoken word bits but I wonder what it would have sounded like with VDP narrating them? Better perhaps? Camper, certainly.

I know there's a very special "flow" to "TLOS," but has anyone attempted to construct a new tracklist using these bonus tracks?

Yeah, cool.  Splice his little ideas together and make them into songs.

Is this a collaboration with Scott Bennett or a wholly Brian song?

According to the BMI publishing database, both Oh Mi Amor and Message Man are credited to Brian alone. (Scott shows up on the TLOS tunes he co-wrote.) I can't find a listing for JLMaY.

LOVE THESE.

Message Man seems to pick up on a kernel of an idea from "Market Place", but is a MUCH more interesting song.

More proof that Brian still has it, even if he doesn't particularly want to use it that often.  Smiley

Message Man is great..

I wish Brian had the confidence in his own work to put something like Message Man on an actual album, not just an 'exclusive bonus track', but the time for that is past methinks..



Brian should've put "Marketplace" on the album..."Message Man" was just a re-write of that song. Whenever I listen to "Message Man", I always want to sing "message man, message man, buy some bananas and apricots, lox and cream cheese, can I take your order please". LOL

What's the deal with Just Like Me And You? A Brian Wilson original? I like it a lot more than Message Man. It actually sounds like something Brian would've done around 1965-1966. And why, on that website, does it show up as TLOS when clicked and played? It's confusing.

It's criminal that Message Man and Just Like Me & You are bonus cuts isn't it? They're better than 80% of the rest of TLOS imo and Message Man is one of my favourite Brian songs since BW88. It just lifts you right up whatever mood you happen to be in. What I love about these two bonus cuts is there's something very Brian about them, and to my ears they both prove that he's capable of writing songs easily as good as anything he's written since BW88. I just can't understand why they weren't saved for a proper album but that's nothing to moan about I guess. I just hope there is more of these loose, natural type of Brian songs to come.

Message Man is many things, but a rewrite of Marketplace isn't one of them. It uses the general feel of the opening "Marketplace - Marketplace" line, but I can't see much else in the newer tune that resembles the older.

Did I read somewhere that Danny Hutton did the backing vox on Message Man?  They sound fantastic, great compliment to Brian's voice.

You did, that's Danny Hutton of Three Dog Night (AKA Redwood) on background vocals for "Message Man."

I'm fairly sure it's Brian and Danny (and possibly Scott) together. I think I hear Danny on the "surrender to love" bits.

For some reason I got hooked on "I'm into Something Good" w Carole King, a very simple but pleasing pop-song! Could have fit on American Spring maybe ?

I recall that after Brian had debuted TLOS in the UK and before he went into the studio in LA to record it was reported that he had written some new songs that he wanted to add to the suite but was convinced by "others" not to do so. Is it known if any of these bonus cuts were those new songs?

Wasn't Message Man called Beatle Man at one point? This possibility makes me think the song is about Paul McCartney but I may have got my facts mixed up here.

Yeah I got that vibe too.. I also wondered if it was about himself during his heyday (1965-66)
