Anyone got any news on the proposed new live CD plus studio tracks from Brian, Mike and Al?  It's mentioned under Other News on the ESQ site, but there's no more info than that.

Sounds interesting, but I have another idea.

Release the live stuff on a SINGLE CD and somehow get it to sound like a cohesive concert. Give it a budget price and back it with some TV advertising. Target the WalMarts, KMarts, and Best Buys. I would hope it would be/do better than "Live At Knebworth". How about "The Boys Are Back In Town" or "Sounds Of Summer - Live"...

Now, for the second release. Take the best track that Mike has to offer. Do the same with Al. Next, invite Bruce to contribute a track, and then, call up their old friend, David Marks (who has been recording over the years) to add the best song he has in his bag. Now, add 6-7 songs that Brian has been working on for his rock & roll album. Yes, let Mike contribute some lyrics which he will undoubtedly insist on. And yes, Brian, you can re-record "Surfer Girl" and "No Go Showboat" (I know that high falsetto has been bothering you for 43 years). Brian can even throw in "The Spirit Of Rock & Roll" (we have to tap all of the resources). And there you have it. A NEW Beach Boys album. Take the 5 "Beach Boys" into the studio. Call Darian & Jeff to assist with the recording, and call a couple of old friends to help tour it. The official Beach Boys' 45th Anniversay celebration!

What do you think, Melinda? Is it feasible? You know, Brian needs a new pair of shoes and in a few years, Daria and Delaney will need braces. Don'tcha think this project would make more money than " Brian Wilson Presents Rock & Roll".

So where's the info come from that suggests this will be a show from the 80s, plus the three studio tracks?

Is it Brian, Mike and Al live on stage/studio together, unreleased "The Beach Boys" concert footage? Still a bit puzzled by all this.

As far as I can tell, the Brian, Mike and Al tracks are individual efforts (well, presumably with backing musicians...).  I haven't read anything - except on this board - to indicate what period the live stuff is from, or if, indeed, it is only from one period.

Have a read on another board that the CD was to be of the 'Box Set' tour in the early 90s complete with unplugged section.

Since Brian wasn't on that tour, do they need his new recording just to sell it as "The Beach Boys" ?

I know Brian changes his mind 10 times the hour, but last interview he said he'd never play with ANY of the Beach Boys ever again...don't know why he was so stern about it...I think it'd be nice to see the guys together one more time. (Using Brian's backup band though)

Hmm. it's supposed to be released in March, but no pre-sales online yet? Weird. But if Capitol had announced it just to cancell it in a few weeks, we'd all be pissed. I guess they learned their lesson withe the BB.

That's just it -- to the best of my knowledge, Capitol has said nothing about it.  That tells me that this is probably just a rumor. Mark Linett would almost certainly engineer such a product and he has said nothing.  Neither has Alan Boyd.  It would be nice, but until someone can post an actual press release or some official word, I don't think it is coming.

A live CD of an early 90s tour plus individual tracks by Brian, Mike and Al sounds pretty darn lame.
They're doing it to take the p!ss I'm sure. That's the only explanation. There's a wealth of super stuff out there - 70s live stuff, Dennis's stuff,  erm SMILE - and they choose to release a live CD of 1990s era BBs? It's a joke. Utter bastards.

This is all based on the rumours. If I'm wrong then I'm sorry. Ever so sorry.

Well, the "unplugged"-concerts were very good and are much requested by fans, so it makes sense. And I think "it will happen" (to quote Stephen Desper)

I would love to see an official release of the Paramount Theater show from 93. It was a great one.

Not sure about this "studio track" thing though.

At Susan's first convention we were privy to listen to one or two tracks played from the '93 tour, and, man, they totally blew me away!  If they are putting that stuff out, then I, for one, will be ecstatic!

If Mark and Alan are involved, and Capitol hasn't said anything, well...maybe Mark and Alan can't really say anything, either.  And if Capitol has learned their lesson, i suspect that Mark and Alan have learned it times ten.  I don't know anything...i'm just commenting on comments here.  Perhaps in the blacklight that seems to be the reality of BBland these days, no news actually IS good news...

One of the neat things about that late '93 string of shows to promote the GV boxed set was that they didn't cut songs out of the show in order to insert the "rarities" section of songs. They simply added about 15 or so extra songs to the setlist, making it just a really long show with something like 43-44 songs.

Hopefully, if this is the show/tour that is going to be presented on this upcoming release, they will include the FULL show, or at the very least, include the full "rarities" section of the show. I'd hate to see it be only a 1-CD release full of "California Girls" and "Surfin' Safari", etc., with only a few rare ones thrown in.

As for the solo tracks idea, it certainly isn't a full-fledged reunion like some fans want, nor it is a full solo album from each of them like a lot of fans want. But, if this is the only way we can get some material out of these guys (especially Al when it comes to studio recordings), then perhaps this format of release isn't that bad of an idea.

Since many of us have been clamoring for release of the huge amount of live recordings in the vaults, I for one wouldn't mind a format of seeing a couple of "live from the archives" type CD's released each year, with each BB throwing on a new solo studio recording (or adding some archival BB studio recordings) as bonuses each time.

I for one will be happy if we get a release of any new BB material in 2006; I was convinced we would likely simply get a "Pet Sounds 40th Anniversary" rerererereissue, with an alternate take of the train sounds or dog barking added on as the "new bonus material."

and the setlist from Paramount Theater which has been floating around the collectors circle for some time... ask around  Smiley

Paramount Theater, NY
November 26, 1993

Unbelievable!! The Beach Boys decided to add THIRTEEN songs to their normal 29-song setlist, without dropping any of the standard oldies, in an effort to promote the just-released "Good Vibrations" boxed set. This "unplugged" set was featured only on a few east coast dates (unfortunately). Quite a noble effort and proof that the Beach Boys still wanted to acknowledge the fact that they did make great music between "Good Vibrations" and "Rock and Roll Music." Wish I could've seen this one...

Drummer Liberty Devito substituted for Mike Kowalski for at least part of the show, if not all of it. Paul Shaffer came appeared on stage but did not perform.

Beach Boys present:
Mike Love
Bruce Johnston
Carl Wilson
Al Jardine

Backup band included:
Matthew Jardine
Liberty Devito (drums)

SETLIST

1. California Girls
2. I Can Hear Music
3. Come Go With Me
4. Rock And Roll Music

11. Be True To Your School

13. Little Duece Coupe
14. 409
15. Shut Down
16. I Get Around
17. California Dreaming
