Does anyone have a high quality version of this image? Not looking to commit any copyright infringement, just something personal.

Perhaps I put too much faith in atmosphere

According to Mike Johnston at the Hoffman Boards, "Mike is on 'I'm Waiting For The Day' for sure...he does the bass vocal during the chorus/fade, and he also pops up at the end singing 'No!', and 'Uh uh' during the fade between Brian's parts."

I've always assumed it to be Mike. But c-man is the one you want for this information...

Gosh, I'd never guess those low parts on "I'm Waiting for the Day" are anybody but Mike.

The only person who I've heard on those early era records who apparently occasionally did those types of low parts was Brian. I'd buy more that it's Brian than Dennis if it's not Mike. But I'm guessing it's Mike.

I've never thought the 'I'm Waiting For The Day' bass vocals were Dennis, but I've gone back and forth on if I thought it was Mike or Brian (or both). It's rather annoying, because I can't completely convince myself either way.

I have a question!...that maybe doesn't 'have' a real answer, but looking for opinions anyway.

In 1995's "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times" album, Brian Wilson does a version of "Melt Away". In the original from 1988, he sings:

"I feel just like an island
Until I see you smiling
And my blues just melt away"

But in the new version during that parts, he sings

"And my dreams just melt away"

Why did he change 'blues' to 'dreams'? Blues makes it sound like the girl makes his sadness go away. Dreams make it sound like his happiness is melting away or something. Maybe he means bad dreams, like nightmares? But "and my nightmares just melt away" didn't really fit? I just thought it was weird because for me it kinda changes the feel and even meaning of the song. I like the 1995 version a lot, though, but this has always bugged me a little.

Brian changed a few lyrics on that IJWMFTT soundtrack. He also changed some at the end of "Wonderful" ("she'll smile and thank God"). As with the other lyric change, smiling is certainly different from sighing, potentially anyway.

Unlike cases of just biffing the lyrics, these inexplicable yet certainly deliberate changes are certainly interesting.

Obviously, in the case of Wonderful he's probably just doing the SS lyrics instead of the Smile lyrics, but it's interesting nonetheless, especially since the IJWMFTT version uses a more Smile-esque musical arrangement.

Not sure what the answer is, but I agree with you. The lyric change doesn't work for me either.
