The landylocked one I have seems to have a bit of the first bar cut off, so the start would appear quicker.... Thanks for your help! That'll save me a day of hopeless internet searching

This isn't a direct question about The Beach Boys themselves, but more of a question about peoples opinions. Ever since I first heard it on GIOMH, I thought that Carl's vocal on SOul Searchin' was pretty weak. His voice sounds very weak to me, almost like he was already sick by then. Does anybody else here think the same?

His illness: that's hard to tell, but chances are that he already was.

As for his vocals: his voice had changed in those last years, but I don't find them particularly weak om Soul Searchin'. If you hear him sing that bridge in the Beach Boys demo-version (which he nails btw) you'll think differently. But that one was replaced by a new vocal from Brian...

I think there's been enough heavy hinting and comments by folk who knew Carl pretty well to indicate that he knew he was very ill some considerable time before the official diagnosis in spring 1997.

Listening to Paul McCartney's Ram album.  Haven't heard the tunes I was familar with from this album in a long time, and never heard the album as a whole before.  I am finding myself amazingly taken by it.  Great album.  It also appears to be his most Beach Boys influenced.  There are several songs here - Back Seat of My Car, Ram On, Heart of The Country that seem Beach Boys like.   And Smile Away....??
What might have been the influence of Brian recording at home in McCartney doing this at the outset of his solo career?   The whole homey, family, love, everyday life kind of thing seems very Brian-ish.   
The other tunes are all very agreeable to me as well - Monkberry Moon Delight, Too Many People, Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey of course, and even the goofy 3 Legs...

I thought "Walkin'" was more of Al's tune.

because he's so short?

 LOL In a world populated by midgets, Al would rule supreme.
He really looked weird at the "We Are The World" reunion last year.The poor man has a head the size of Baltimore! The color job did'nt help either.

i hate Brian's line in that song. It might have worked had he dubbed it in circa 1996, but in 2003(or whenever GIOMH came out) his voice was so different that the change from Carl to Brian is very jarring awkward. Not to mention that Brian does his best to shout the lyric out at the top of his head.

At least he's cut off the ponytail. Balding men should never grow ponytails. Never.

Why did Al stop to sing lead on "Wouldn't It Be Nice" in the late '80s?

It was probably getting out of his range. I saw Carl sing lead in the 90's and it was even tough on him.

I've never understood why the group always switched leads on certain songs. WIBN is one. Don't Worry Baby is another one that Al and Carl switched off on a few times. I think Don't Worry Baby might have sounded interesting with Dennis singing.

Great album and definitely Paul's most BBs influenced one. He was already working on Back Seat of My Car while still in the Beatles. One of the Get Back/Let it Be session tapes (January '69) has Paul playing and singing it at the piano while working out the lyrics. Somebody in the background mentions that it sounds like the Beach Boys, and he acknowledges it (even affecting a goofy American accent when singing some of the lines): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xS2A7V4M2sE

For the fun of it? Imagine touring as a full time job, playing (more or less) the same songs every night. Though a dream job to start with, even that can turn into a routine.

Not unless someone did a rough sync somewhere along the line - that is, not officially. I know someone had a crack with one song.

Did Marylin or Diane participate in the recording of Rollin' Up To Heaven? I have listened to the song several times now, and I swear I can hear at least one female voice.

speaking of syncing, I've often tried to read their lips on the BB 1966 London dvd, didn't have much luck. I think I saw their lips singing Graduation Day, but who knows; I could be way off. Haven't watched it in forever.


Anyone have that audio?

"Paul McCartney's Ram"

One of the few Macca solo efforts that is quite warm and that I can listen to all the way through.

I wouldn't have thought they would perform GD, but then again, I thought it was on the setlist sometime in 66 or 67...like I feel they perform it on a pretty well known live boot.

Just dug out a very old cassette from the 1966 tour - I stand corrected, they did do "GD"

Might as well try asking my moronic question here, googling isn't helping much.

Gershwin's music is supposed to come into the public domain soon, right? Does this mean the songs he wrote with Ira (or indeed others) come into the public domain with it, or do the lyrics remain copyrighted? Pardon my ignorance of copyright law, but there it is. Thanks!
