I'm gonna have this chiselled on my tombstone, but...

No Landlocked album - never was, never will be. It was the working title for Surf's Up for, oh, maybe three weeks, a month. That's all.


But I've owned the Landlocked album for years!

Wait ... could it be, gasp, that my copy of Landlocked is a bootleg??   Smiley


Well... y'know... I'd be dubious.

I just realized my copy of the Landlocked album has gotta be legit, because no one on this board owns any bootlegs!

Yeah I don't like Carl's later hair do either. Last time it looked really good was probably 1983.

Eh, I just gave it an honest first time listen. As the liner notes (for the mp3 album) say (paraphrasing): Brian was inspired by the same music his father listened to (Four Freshmen, Martin Denny, Les Baxster) of which inspired this album - This album has an incredible exotica vibe on it.

Yes, some songs (The Happy Song, Plumbers Tune) sound like they are straight from the Lawrence Welk show (and I know Murry wrote songs for the show) but most have a great Nelson Riddle/Henry Mancini feel.

Thoroughly enjoying it thus far. I have to say 'Islands In The Sky' is THE best 'lounge' tune I have ever heard.

Hell yeah!  I'm listening to snippets on amazon.  Am seriously digging some of the more Les Baxter-esque tunes!  Helps explain some of Baxter/Denny-isms in BW's stuff.

I very much recommend it! Besides the two Lawrence-Welk-like songs that I mentioned previously I find the album to be full of great songs.

On the documentary: Endless Harmony, during the section of touring (68-69) in Europe...it seems like footage is taken from another documentary with commentary by the Beach Boys while walking around. Mike's talking about being a tourist in England I believe and talking about the 'Lou' in the middle of the street (if that's what you call it) and Country Air is playing in the background. Dennis is sleeping on a train, narrating about a girl he met that night and I Went to Sleep is in the background. And Al's walking around with Our Prayer. What doc. was this from? Were the tracks added for that doc. or for EH? They're not very audible.


Oh, also, it's where Bruce is "directing" in the park and part of Loop De Loop (track) is playing in the background.

My vinyl copy plays fine.  But, for all the hype surrounding vinyl, it still has a number of potential issues, including warps, clicks and pops, and other surface noise.  Although most of today's vinyl is pressed on thick 180 gram vinyl, my experience has been that the pressing quality of most vinyl today is just mediocre, and overall is not up to the standards of the best high quality audiophile stuff available in the 70s and 80s.  This could be due to the fact that few vinyl pressing plants are still around, and from what I've heard, they are running at capacity.

I have returned some recent vinyl purchases due to these issues, but ya gotta remember that vinyl, by its very nature, is far more prone to flaws than CDs.  However, the larger graphics are totally cool compared to the much smaller graphics found on CDs.

Check your BWRG disc for warps by looking at the disc from the side as it plays.   Mistracking due to warps is most pronounced at the outer edges of the vinyl, which is what you are experiencing.  Another issue could be your stylus tracking force is set too low.  If you have a stylus pressure gauge, check your tracking force to see if it is within the specified range, assuming you have paperwork indicating what that is.  Otherwise, if no warps seems to be apparent, try setting it a little higher to see if that solves the problem.

How was the packaging from Amazon?  Their prices are good, but I have been very disappointed by their cheap vinyl LP packaging.  I have returned two vinyl albums to Amazon due to the covers getting beat up due their cheap packaging. Then again, I also returned my first copy of the BWRG CD I got from them, as it was shipped in a cheap bubble pack envelope, and and the plastic tray on the digipac was completely cracked from one end to the other.  They shipped the replacement in the same cheap packaging, but the second one arrived in fine condition.  This wouldn't have been an issue for me if BWRG was a jewel box CD, as I would have simply junked the cracked jewel box and placed the CD and inserts in a new jewel box.  But, that being said, I do have a distinct preference for digipacs as opposed to jewel boxes.

Thanks for the reply Custom Machine! Much appreciated. I don't mind extra sounds (as long as it's not extreme) on vinyl records. Like surface noise, some clicks and pops, especially on older records, it adds something to the album imo. They packed the item in a medium sized box, with bubble packets, probably what you described your CD was shipped in.
Is that the proper way to ship vinyl? I've received vinyl different ways from won auctions on eBay and purchases from other websites.
I didn't see anything wrong with the disc as far as warps or anything, though I don't know exactly what to look for. What would they look like exactly?
I tried applying different pressure but that didn't cease it from skipping-even used the anti-skate function. And what do you mean by setting it a little higher, the pressure gauge or the speed of the record playing? Sorry to hear you had a problem with your CD shipment, glad you were able to get it straightened out, unlike my vinyl situation here it seems.

That's all from the late '68 to '69 European tour documentary filmed by Vic Kettle...which was unreleased/unfinished...but snuck out for a minute via gray market a couple of years ago. The soundtrack is dubbed on top of the silent footage in a sometimes random and amateurish way...but that footage is gold. The doc. ran about 60 minutes...but there's another 60 to 90 minutes of unedited footage that exists.

I have a bunch of still photos form that tour/time( non-concert). I wonder if I got them from the same person responsible for the gray market video, which I don't think I got...

Since SMiLE was never an official album will Capitol even bother to release a boxset?

But even if he wanted it there isn't much of a market for a boxset (as much as say Pet Sounds)...so in lieu of that, would Capitol even bother to take the chance in the market?

(I know nothing of how much this stuff costs to make, or the "risk" involved for Capitol, so pardon my ignorance  Smiley )

As a niche market product, there is a huge market for a box set. There is no true Smile album (unless you count BWPS), but there is a true Smile legend and a relatively small but proven-dedicated market. They can sell a package--as long as it consists of something more than just music, which is easy enough to share for free (ahem...)--for way above what that number of minutes of music should cost, because there is this ridiculously interested group of people who will buy anything new. The general public won't care and it won't chart, but if you're selling a 2-disc set for, say, $30 apiece at a limited run, you'll make out just fine. Because everyone here would bitch like mad about it, but they'd buy it.

Yeah, I suppose most of those who bought the Pet Sounds boxset would buy the SMiLE boxset. I'd settle for a two-disc $30 set....oooooh to hear 'Holidays' in proper quality......

Any chance any sort of SMiLE set comes out in the next two years?
