Was the chorus of Woody Woodpecker Symphony originally intended to be overlaid on the Fire track, as was finally done on BWPS?

I think it was the other way around: "Fall Breaks..." evolved (devolved ?) from the Fire Music.

Hmmm... interesting and plausible. Nice choice of words too...

Not the most interesting question to ever be asked on this board I'm sure, but can anybody tell me if Dennis is vocally audible anywhere on the "Wild Honey" album? Can't hear him at all and no Bruce either for that matter.

Well, if you consider Lonely Days part of the Wild Honey album, I hear Brucie on there

True. Come to think of it, if that track had ever been completed it would have been Bruce's official lead vocal debut on a BB record.

The whole "Wild Honey" backing vocals is a mystery to me.  Why are they so far back in the mix and why has nobody ever tried to make them more clearer on subsequent reissues?  I know artistically they were going for a 'rawer' sound but still a sloppy mix is a sloppy mix.  Also I think "Wild Honey" marks the official start of the whole "Al and Brian sounding identical on high harmonies" thing.

WH truly is very shoddily produced, in a way that harms the enjoyment of the album. The vinyl is no better then the CD. It's all fake stereo. I have one LP that is comparable to WH: 'L.A.M.F.' by Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers (1st version, produced by John Keen and Daniel Secunda). Well, it's not really produced. It sounds like it was randomly recorded on a C-45 cassette, then transferred to 8-track cartridge, fed into a wax cylinder, put back to piano roll, and reconverted to a signal on Elcaset, and then finally engraved on vinyl with a worn sewing needle.

I am not joking.

Much of WH sounds demoish to me. If we didn't have the recording dates you'd think it was all bashed out in one afternoon at Brian's.

Also to answer my own question, I'm fairly certain I hear Dennis in the occapella blend on "Mama Says".

On one hand yes, on another no. WH is another of those flawed post PS records. I enjoy most of the album greatly but it's still a 4 star LP at a time when the group had the potential to make 5 star ones. Smiley Smile, Friends and 20/20 also fall under this catagory.

What are Brian's thoughts on Pink Floyd? I've never really heard anything from BW about the group, but in that infamous pic from the late 80s (I think) of Brian holding the Spector Christmas album, Dark Side of the Moon is clearly laying beside a copy of Let it Be. So he obviously has a liking for it...let alone, Brian knows the best music.   Razz

perhaps the cover of Game of Love on the Wild Honey outtakes has great backing vocals by Bruce?    Wink

Brian has commented that the intro to TIME "scared" him...and, given his liberal use of that word, I believe he meant that it thrilled him with its texture and "feel". Of course, the intro is pretty ominous as well, so maybe it did scare him a little, but not enough to put him off the album which he has mentioned as being among favorites from time-to-time.

Ok, I have another question. What is Ecology? I just stumbled on this interesting recording today. What year was it made in? Who was involved in the recording?

Sorry, just read your post properly. Unless someone's been exceedingly careless, what you've heard isn't "Ecology".
What do you mean? The recording I have heard has the River Song melody, first played on piano, and then on  what sounds like a synthesizer. Then there is another section that has Dennis singing something along the lines of "Our Love, is bigger than the ocean". Then it ends with with mid tempo drums and guitar.

Does anyone know what the status of this is? No idea what he's talking about, either. AGD, care to comment?

What's the deal with the "Fig Plucker" and "Oh Yeah!" session excerpts (?) from the Goodbye Surfing, Hello God! Vigotone box set? What session are they from and what purpose did they serve -- just more joking around in the studio or something more?

I know throughout Brian's re-emergence in the 1980/90s it was suggested -- and sometimes actually planned -- that he work with various other artists who were at the time immensely popular and were huge fans of Brian. I know he was supposed to work with Sean O'Hagan (The High Llamas) and Andy Partridge (XTC), I think. (Both of these would have been amazing, alas! He should ring 'em up again...) Does anyone know who else, if there was anyone else, was floated that he could have worked with as a songwriting partner?

Someone's put together a sequence of DW outtakes (a few years back) and called it "Ecology". I've heard it, and also heard the real "Ecology": shares a little music, but trust me, isn't "Ecology".
