Two years ago, Mike Love snuck into Brian's bedroom with a 45 of Sloop John B and a jar of petroleum jelly.

Ever since, Brian hasn't been the same.

... and it's still there.  Shocked

Darian on lead for "Darlin'", oh my sweet Caroline!

If anyone has this show in any form please let me know, I'm dying to hear Darian on "Darlin"!

I just got back from seeing Brian at the Kirby Theater in Wilkes-Barre, PA tonight.

I feared the worst when I went to the Keswick two weeks ago. Greatest hits shows usually stood for a lackluster performance on Brian's part and possibly some missing band members. The Keswick performance was beautiful, a true gem of a show. Brian was sensational, as was the band. The audience, including my screaming self, ate it up.

I REALLY was worried for this show. Sure, some good reviews and a good bootleg or two in between, but I figured I wasn't going to be catching lightning in a bottle twice.

He was actually BETTER this time around. MUCH better.

This was a man truly in control of himself, singing great for his age, laughing off his vocal flubs (for example, after a small flub in Sloop John B, he imitated a man being hung to death), and joking with the audience. And his appreciation for the response he got from us all was completely genuine, and I'm the ultimate cynic when it comes to Brian and his feelings about other people.

Brian Wilson is back. See this tour by any means necessary. This is truly amazing stuff, history in the making for us fans. You won't regret it one bit. Not one bit. I guarantee it.

Too bad he doesn't seem to come to Europe anytime soon. When I last saw one of his shows (which must have been summer of 2007 IIRC) he had a fairly good day in terms of vocal delivery. This, however, seems to go way beyond the usual good day/bad day routine. Now what I'm most definitely waiting for is the real Brian Wilson on Tour DVD to be assembled.

HE NEEDS TO COME TO HOUSTON. I'm almost tempted to go to the Blueboard and beg.

At the very least, a PROPER full-length live album would be killer.

A live album wouldn't capture it. I've heard a recording or two, and they're okay at putting across the jokes, but they don't quite convey the impact of this tour. It would have to be visual -- just so you can see Brian as involved as he is. The closest I've seen is the Smile DVD. Honest to god.

Problem is, of course, once Brian knew it would be filmed and recorded, he would probably just clam up. I wonder if part of the reason he's so relaxed is this is truly a low-pressure tour. Small venues, full band, an interesting but not overly challenging setlist, enthusiast audiences and no one around to distract him from making music.

Great point, though. If he could just overcome it, it would be awesome.

I have to say last night's show can't and won't be topped. I'm putting this up with my Smile gigs as one of the greatest shows I've seen of Brian. Period. The whole night was just amazing. Band on fire, fans really getting into it, Brian REALLY loose (and even more so then 2 weeks ago!!!!)  and my friend I took to the concert at the last minute loved it as well. She had never seen them live and what an introduction she got!

Brian, like the rest of us, is sick to death of hearing Al explain how he suggested it.

Lowell, sweet Lowell. Some preliminary notes from Mass.

-- Brian Wilson playing piano during "Heroes and Villains"? Believe it. It is now easier to list the songs he doesn't play on than the ones he does. So, he didn't play on the opening few songs -- "Do It Again," "Dance, Dance, Dance," "Girl Don't Tell Me" -- or the three TLOS songs in the second set. "Good Vibrations." Everything else? Yep.

-- He was the sole keyboard player in "Surfer Girl" and "In My Room." He played along with the quirky intro to TLGIOK. He played during the supposedly a cappella break in "California Girls" (thankfully drowned out by the voices). He stumbled over lyrics on "Little Saint Nick" because he was so preoccupied with the piano part.

-- His intro: "Lowell! We're here in Lowell. Is that the name of your place? Lowell? I like that. Low-ell. It's a cool word. Low-ell."

-- "We're going to do something for you. Again, another soft song. I know you want to rock and roll; we'll be doing that soon. Just sit back and let us take care of music for you. Don't go running around scared. Just sit calmly in your seats."

-- "As you all know, there are devils and there are angels, right? In this particular one, we just have angels on stage here. About three-fourths of the way through, you'll hear them. ... It says on my teleprompter (stern voice): 'Brian, sing it sweetly.' So I guess that means I should go into my feminine mode now."

-- "Love and Mercy" lyrics revised: "I was sitting in a CRAPPY movie / with my hands on my chin."

More thoughts later.

Three things before I sign off for the evening --

1.) Brian was lavishing praise on the band for their performance of "Their Hearts Were Full of Spring."

Jeff: And we should thank you for that beautiful arrangement.

Brian: Oh, I stole it from someone.

(Entire band cracks up)

2.) In chatting with some band members, the quirky fun of this tour is just as much of a surprise to them as to us. Everyone is just having a great time -- and no one is quite sure why.

3.) Darian did Darlin' again. And Brian practically kissed him on the mouth after he was done. Well, he didn't leave his seat. But was gesturing over to Darian and enthusing: "Darian Saha NAJA! Wasn't he great? Wasn't that great! Amazing!"

Cheesy
But seriously, though, how much does Brian's arrangement of it differ from the Four Freshmen's? Here's a link to the Freshmen singing it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djDm2JVMm9Y
