20/20 (or a similar US TV program) aired a profile on the BB's upcoming 20th anniversary year. That's what this footage is from. The entire show has circulated among collectors for decades.

On another Youtube clip Al and Bruce talk about recording a live album in Cleveland in 1982. Did this recording take place and, if so, why wasn't it released?

One song did - "Runaway", on the 1986 Sunkist album.  Smiley

Rule of thumb, think BEFORE you post. And THINK how it may affect someone else's feelings.

Check out the Beach Boys Starline website, the place for pictures of many countries Beach Boys releases on 45.

Right behind you I see the millions; On you I see the glory; From you I get opinions; From you I get the story

About that medley: I've never understood why they bothered to add (or rather the early 80s equivalent to copy/paste) extra handclaps to the portion of "I Get Around". Granted, a lot more could be questioned regarding the medley.

Al wearing white shorts and shoes with black socks. Was he single then or did his wife just want him to look like a dork?

Did anyone on stage or in the organization not have a....eh....queer eye to offer some advice?

In Al's defense (which I am not sure is totally possible in this case), I think he is wearing red socks to match his red shirt.

1967-74 Brian and Al are easily confused but Brian stops mid song and says I don't want to sing this sh-t.
If you listen closely, Brian(?) says "keep going Al".

"Keep going, man."

Just Brian saying it during his vocal take.

Somewhere in my collection I have a Sunkist T.V. commercial with a rip off band doing a badly reworked version of Good Vibrations. I can't figure out if they are being serious, or doing a parody.

I feel like it's on a BB/BW doc....I'm thinking the A&E Bio to Brian Wilson.

Gym Class Heroes did yet another crappy cover of it for a new Sunkist commercial a couple years ago.

Awesome, this is a good thread. On the That's Not Me session highlights from the Pet Sounds box, what are they singing in the background towards the end of the track? I can't make out what they're saying.
Is that where they put the background vocals from I Just Wasnt Made...? I think those are Spanish lyrics, and there was a recent thread about those. http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,7879.0.html

Aaand that's probably why I couldn't understand it Tongue Thanks for bringing the thread to my attention, I don't remember seeing it before.

On the cover of the new(ish, from last year) Capitol Pet Sounds vinyl reissues, why are Sloop John B. and Caroline No taken out of the regular order of the track listing and placed at the top? They're also in white while the rest are in yellow. Not that it matters at all, I'm just curious as to why they've been put in front.

And I think the reasoning for that was that they were the two singles released prior to the album's release.

I have a question about I Just Wasn't Made For These Times(the song). It's probably something that a lot of people here know, but it's just something that has bugged me. When Brian sings "sometimes I feel very sad", what is Mike(?) singing at the same time underneath Brian? I've never been able to make it out.

Aren't those vocals the Spanish lyrics Brian forgot about?

"O cuándo seré... un dia seré..."

They mean 'Oh, when will I be...? One day I will be...?'

Brian was using Spanish during the recording of Pet Sounds for some reason... during the tracking of one song, I can't remember which, he calls for 'Take Eight... Ocho... Eight'. Didn't he learn some at school or something?

Anyway, the vocals are there in IJWMFTT. But by the time the Pet Sounds box set and stereo mix was released in 1996 he'd forgotten all about them. If I remember the story correctly, someone asked him why he'd put Spanish BVs on that track, and he said 'WHAT Spanish vocals? There aren't any!' So they played him the isolated vocals and he was absolutely, completely surprised. I seem to recall he said something like 'Well I'll be damned'.

Such a memory loss isn't all that amazing. I mean, it's incredible that Brian even knows who he is when you consider all the drugs he took. And of course, although I remember that this story is true and that I read it somewhere, *I* can't remember where... and that's only 13.5 years ago. And I haven't taken a fraction of the drugs Brian did through the years... Wink
