That's amazing! So, at least by Mike Love standards, Brian did indeed co-write that song. Cheesy

I love to hear about Brian being involved in putting together a track on any of their albums that came immediately after Sunflower.

Well... that one is Sunflower, it just wasn't released at the time.

I note that that The Beach Boys' Christmas Album has popped up at #151 on Billboard this week. Is this a regular yuletide occurrence? It's apparently notched 107 weeks on the chart over the years.

It has as of last week spent five weeks on the billboard top 200 chart. It was on the Christmas chart for years back in the Ď60ís. The number 107 is itís peak chart position. In January 2019 it landed on the chart at 107 for one week. As of last week it spent four more weeks on the top 200 chart. The pk in the listings is for peak position. So far it has been on the top 200 chart for five weeks total.  

Thanks Steve -- I'd eventually worked most of that out. I also mentioned this on the Feel Flows thread when the nature of today's charts was being discussed, and surmised its chart appearances were down to Little Saint Nick appearing on Christmas playlists, probably more so in supermarkets and such like than on the radio.

Random question: does anyone else have a hard time listening to thoughts of you because thereís a short piano part that sounds just like the MASH theme song?

Itís definitely mixed way too loud according to my ears. I think they must have been going for a dynamics effect or something but I find it jarring. Great song though

Doesn't bother me, but I always notice it.

Same here. I guess when I first heard the song it jumped out more and it was a bit distracting because I immediately thought about the TV show, but over time I don't really think about it anymore when I listen to the song these days.

Was Dennis a viewer of M*A*S*H*? The show was so popular for over an entire decade, I would think it would've been next to impossible for him to have never seen the show or to have been totally unaware of the theme song, but who knows.

I doubt he was going for an intentional "homage" or direct reference, but I do wonder if he realized the similarity, but decided he liked the part anyway and just kept it in, or if there's any more to the story than that. It's also possible he didn't realize it at all, but it seems unlikely to me that nobody would've pointed it out to him at some point.

I was told by Alan Boyd that Desper added the drums during the KTSA sessions.




"When Girls Get Together" was also apparently remixed and considered for "15 Big Ones" in 1976; there's a "15 Big One Mix" on that 2000 "Brother Rarities" compilation. None of the mixes are like night-and-day different.

I think that's possibly an error drawing on the year it was prepared - it was included in a late '76 handwritten tracklist for the 'New Album' concurrent with Love You, so it might've been slightly later around the time Brian was also mining the vaults for My Solution and Good Time. The drums heard on KTSA are present in that mix (added '76 by Brian?) while other parts like the strings are removed.

The heavy bass drum overdubbed by Scott Mathews yes, but that's seemingly on top of another set that exists in a 1976-dated mix.

When did it become common knowledge that Murray was an abusive father? I've only been a fan since the mid 00's by which time Murray's overbearing nature was an indelible part of the Beach Boys story with the boys openly discussing it in interviews and biographies. Was there a single article or biography that came out and broke that particular part of the story for the first time, or is it more a case of rumours trickling out over time?

The earliest account I remember is in the music press (RollingStone or another mag) around 1971.

Yeah, and that's when Murray was still alive!
