One's "SJB", another "GOK". They didn't do "Graduation Day".

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"

ah, I wasn't trying to prove you wrong...but then again, we all take things differently through text unfortunately.

All in all I was just trying to look somewhat smart in the BB/BW world.

this is more of a hypothetical question, but if Brian performed Be Here in the Morning, do you think he or other members of the band would go through the trouble of making the vocal (Al's vocal part) go through the speaker/amp as they did on the Friends album?           Wink

Nah, they wouldn't have bothered with an amp, cuz Brian likes to sing in the nude anyway. ( that's accapella to you, punkin)

Not completely, of course. But when you're hot, you're hot; so of course with Brian Being here in the morning, he'd be hot and have to disrobe to get the timbre right.

I was wondering if Jack Rieley asked for Beach Boy involvement on his Western Justice album. While I admire the album, I don't know much about it, when it was recorded/released....recorded in Holland where Jack stayed after the Holland album? Since I enjoy the album, it could have only gotten better with some BB involvement. Plus, would have been more artistic than anything they put out after 73.

Has anyone here read 'Beach Boys Vs. Beatlemania: Rediscovering Sixties Music' by G.A. De Forest? If so, is it worth the read/worth buying?

I've been re-reading some different BB books and I stumbled upon SMiLE: the Lost Masterpiece by Dominic P. And I believe it was this book that said Andy Warhol used 'Denny's Drums' in a film, I can't remember the title, but it was about Tarzan.

Anyone seen this before?
Did he use the whole track or just a section?

That would be Tarzan and Jane Regained... Sort of starring Dennis Hopper. Sorry - haven't seen the film, but since it was released in '64 it's logical that Warhol could have used "Denny's Drums".

What was the first song Brian wrote after getting stoned for the first time? Was it "Please Let Me Wonder" as allmusic's song review suggests (they're wrong on a lot of stuff so I figured I'd ask the folks who know for certain)?

Yesh, it was 'Please Let Me Wonder' - Philip Lambert wrote in his book (paraphrasing) that though 'Please Let Me Wonder' was the first song Brian wrote on pot 'In The Back Of My Mind' was a far better example of the effect pot was having on Brian's mind.

It is fine. IMHO it does not differ from the earlier WB pressing. But I must hasten to add that Van Dyke himself disowned the Edsel material, I mean: IIRC he had real trouble with the way Edsel handled the financial matters, licensing fees and suchlike, and actually advised people to not buy that stuff.
That said: try to locate the Rykodisc version of 1997 or thereabouts, it has a bonus track and is a real remaster. It's out of print, but surely worth seeking for.

VDP announced a 5.1 remaster some three years ago, but as yet I have heard nothing about a release date.

Has the question been answered about who (denny's friend) Medulla is?
I know i've read the article/interview before about Dennis, but I thought I'd try my hand at this.
I did search our message board, but never came up with an answer.
All I know is that this person was a backing musician for tours around late 60s and was going to be signed to Brother Records.


BTW, who sung that version of Let the Wind Blow?
All I know is the first name: Amy.
What's the story on her?

On the acapella break in Sloop John B, there is a voice that sings "hoist up the John B saaaaails...". Who's voice is it? At first I thought it was Dennis, but the more I listen to it the more it sounds like Mike.

My money's on Dennis. You can hear Mike singing the same line the measure before (albeit quietly), after which he falls to and sustains a note below Dennis's part.
