Y
Is anybody else a little disturbed to see that the new Jonas Brothers album cover is all but ripping off the classic Beach Boys walking with the surfboard pose?  What will their next album cover be, The Jonas Brothers friggin' around at the local petting zoo? Anywho, the only people who like these dorks are 9 year old little girls and Bruce Johnston!

Yeah...kinda looks like the Abbey Road cover too....


Seriously? You bothered?

Only if they think for one nanosecond that they are in the same league as The BB's. If not fine, let them have their 15 minutes.

BTW, I'm a little bemused that the word I typed in my previous post has been edited out and substituted with the word 'friggin' as I didn't type a swear word??

Hmmm, the words friggin', foda and merda have popped up quite often the last couple of weeks. Might be due to the fact that since the switch to a new webhost some settings might have been set back to default. I'll check out the filter-settings.

The word I typed was F-R-O-L-I-C-K-I-N-G. Maybe that has a different meaning Stateside but in England it's a totally innocent word.

I think Help Me Rhonda was merely an error on the part of those who compiled the first run. Wasn't it fixed in subsequent pressings?

No, it was never fixed on LP. Nor was it fixed on the Capitol CD. The DCC release is the only one that has the single versions of both, Help Me Rhonda and Be True To Your School.

It was done that way to accommodate playing them on a record changer (one which allowed you to stack up several records on a tall spindle for multiple disc playing) rather than a single-play turntable. By backing side 1 with side 4 and side 2 with side 3, you could stack them so they'd play side 1 first, then side 2 -- that is, the second record (with sides 2 & 3) would be stacked on top of the first record (with sides 1 & 4). The first record would drop and side 1 would play, then the second record would drop and side 2 would play. Then you'd take the two records off the spindle, flip them over as a unit and put them back on the spindle. That would put the first record (with sides 1 & 4) stacked on top of the second record (with sides 2 & 3). Because they'd been flipped over, the second side of each record would then play - that is, the second record (now on the bottom of the stack) would drop and side 3 would play, then the first record (now on the top of the stack) would drop and side 4 would play. Genius, huh?  Cheesy

Genius? I was just musing on how many pristine and superbly recorded LPs by our Boys must've been damaged beyond comprehension throughout the years... Sad

+1  I never get enough of groovin' to the funky piano sound of that era.  Is this possibly the same piano from the sandbox?  What ever the heck it is, I dig it, man.  It's very "honky tonk" sounding.

Yep. The concept for 'Nashville Sounds' was born in those times. Unfortunately, Brian went to bed for the next 30 years or so, so he did nowt but stuff himself with 8 packs of ciggies each day, 4 turkeys, 20 hamburgers, two bottles of Jack Daniels, and a kilo of cocaïne. So we had to wait some time.

Well, all geniuses have their eccentricities, I guess.

Brian on why he loves God Only Knows: "Because Paul McCartney said it was his favourite song"

"Everything I Need" dates from Brian's 'reunion' writing session with Tony Asher circa 1996. Recorded Spring 1997.

"Black Widow" (aka "Let's Do It Again") dates from 1987, and yes, Brian have write the music, lyrics by E. E. Landy. First known sessions were June 1987 in NYC, and again in November, in LA

And the truth shall be revealed! AGD isn't really British. No, he's actually Japanese, and English is his second language! That why he sometimes (as above) reads like those God-awful lyrics translations you find in Japanese issues of BB albums.

Allegedly, it was because the 'leggers didn't have access to a 16-track machine, hence they could only 'liberate' material that was on 2-, 3-, 4- and 8-track multis. Seems entirely logical to me, but then the words 'logical" and "Beach Boys" have never been happy bedfellows...

Some early Sunflower songs were initially recorded on an 8-track, but they were all transferred to 16-track in October 1969 (see the upcoming edition of ESQ, which is a Sunflower 40th anniversary special, with previously unseen photos from the sessions at Brian's house (many thanks to David Dalton)).

Considering Brian's seemingly undiluted interest in living healthy that began in the 1970s if not earlier and is ostensibly still going strong... has he ever been vegetarian? I have no evidence to suggest he has -- maybe he's simply consumed less flesh -- but if you're on the health tip it wouldn't particularly surprise me that he might have tried at one time or another.

I don't think so. Consider: vegetarianism has the connotation of 'health' for not that very long, IMHO, and even then you have to balance your food intake precisely, e.g. with essential amino acids. Through the '60s and '70s, it was more something of the counterculture, and something for those that hate killing higher animals anyway. I don't see Brain looking in any insecure or contemplative way at a double decker hamburger, wondering about eventual saturated fatty acids in there, or what precious animal had to die to make that thing... before you'd be able to draw one breath, it'd be gone entirely.
