Anyone notice the excessive amount of covers recorded during the late 60s? (particularly the 20/20 album era?)
With I Can Hear Music, Cotton Fields, Bluebirds over the Mountain being on the album itself, and then we know Old Man River and Walk on By were recorded at the time...does this mean the guys were just hard up for material? I guess I could include their cover of Rock and Roll Woman (only performed in concerts I believe) and also okie from muskogee (I know, it's later than 69)...which really doesn't mean much unless they were to be recorded for an album, but I suspect not.

Regardless, it couldn't have been a better time to do a lot of covers, I love the production style of this era. Obviously, the next era of covers would be 15 Big Ones, which I'm not so crazy about that style and technique, to each his own I reckon.

I could go on to re-workings (not necessarily covers, but evidence of being "hard up for material") with evidence of the reworking of Been Way to Long (was anything added that is evident on the version we have available?) and then you have Al's looking to re-work Sail Plane Song (Loop De Loop) and Cotton Fields. And I guess I could include Carnival/Over the Waves and Raspberries, Strawberries for poops and giggles.

I always was under the impression that they recorded an awful lot in 1969, including original material. Maybe a bit less in 1968. A lot of these recordings ended up on the Sunflower and Surf's Up albums. And a lot was booted (Landlocked for example).
Remember this was in their final year with Capitol. Maybe they didn't want to give their brand-new compositions and recordings away to a company they were about to leave and who wasn't really into properly promoting them anymore.

When you turn on the news and see coverage of the Student Fee riots of the past weeks, does anybody else get "Student Demonstration Time" instantly begin to play in their heads? I half expect to see Mike Love somewhere in the crowd singing into his megaphone!

SDT was about students campaigning for free speech, the US invasion of Cambodia, the Vietnam War, not hiking the price of education. I've tried to see in link in the last few weeks but today's students don't seem to get as riled about international aggression as they do their own funding.

Considering none of us knows what it actually sounds like, maybe it's not that big of a mystery.

DO wish it had been booted, though...

Well I am interested in the answer and I likely wouldn't have ever known about the question since the title of the "insignificant question" thread has never exactly pulled me in with curiosity to check out.

You can probably get Bruce's (and maybe David's) height on the Beach Boys Britain message board. Bruce reads it regularly, and I think Carrie Marks does, too.

What tracks did Brian and Carl play drums on while Denny sang lead on something?

I know The Wanderer is a clear example of Brian playing.

Did Carl play when Dennis would sing You've Got To Hide Your Love Away? Or was there any percussion on that when it was performed live at all?
Also, I know Carl played on Never Learn Not to Love on the television performance.

I wasn't sure where to put this, so I'll place it here.

I am reading the liner notes to the 2006 compilation In Thee Midnite Hour!!! by Thee Midniters, who were a Chicano teen garage rock group from the mid-1960s. (I had never heard of them before getting a hold of the CD, and I've not yet listened to any of it.) The liners were written by Domenic Priore and he included a neat little tidbit relevant for us fine obsessives here that was at least new to me. I figured I'd share:

Quote from: Domenic Priore
["Whittier Blvd."] starts out with Willie G.'s rallying cry, "Let's take a trip down Whittier Boulevard!" followed by organist Ronny Figueroa shouting "Arriba arriba! Ha ha ha ha!", Dick Dale-styled lead guitar [and] pounding organ and driving horns[.]

[Thee Midniters] got tough again by forming their own label, Whittier Records, going independent, more than a year before the Beach Boys' Brother Records and the Beatles' Apple imprint. In fact, the Beach Boys paid tribute to Thee Midniters on their Lei'd in Hawaii live recordings in the summer of 1967. They opened with a tune called "Hawthorne Blvd.", filled with screaming and an intro with Brian Wilson calling out "Let's take a trip down Hawthorne Boulevard!"

Darlene Love's annual appearance on Letterman is TONIGHT.  It's almost always on either the 22nd or 23rd so this is a week early.  Wendesday night.  It's always at the close of the show.
