I had heard from someone (probably Earle or Alan Boyd) that "Dr. Tom" was a rewrite a la "Cottonfields" of the Kingston Trio's "Tom Dooley".  Apparently not as good, though.

There's a whole bunch more unreleased tracks from '78-'81, I think we talked about several of them in other threads.  Key tracks from the KTSA-LA sessions would be "Calendar Girl," "California Feelin'", "I Will Always Love You," "Surfer Suzie", "Smokey Places", "Goin' To The Beach"...what else am I forgetting?

Right... I was just thinking those were from '81.  I probably should have just thrown those in, with the list.  Well put "Bucks" and "Sweetie" in there too.  Then you've got "At The Hop" (shudder) and "Oh Lord" from Beach Boys '85.  What else?  There's the hamburger sessions.  "Stevie" has to be included at the very least.

Of course [slaps forehead] this is all on AGD's site.  Don't hit me AGD!

Has anyone heard "Oh Lord" from '85, and if so is it any good?

Not sure how well that song would work with all the 80s synth sounds.

Currently I'm up to my ass in late 18th century cricket scorecards (don't ask...)

Sorry to ask, but I am curious. You don't have to answer if you don't want to (or can't for whatever reason) but what is this for? I'm just a huge cricket fan that is all.

No big deal - possibly the most famous son of my hometown* is the one hardly anyone knows about now, William "Silver Billy" Beldham (1766-1862) who played first class cricket from 1787-1821 and was generally considered the best batsman of his era. He's my profile pic, taken when he was about 92. ...


Wait a minute, AGD ... after all these years ... are you trying to say that guy with the tall top hat isn't really you? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Nah - I won't be 92 for, oh, a few years yet.  Old Man

I sure haven't, and yeah, I've always wondered what the heck that would sound like.

The "dirty" version of Ding Dang is also titled "Rollin' Up To Heaven" and was recorded a year after DD.

Rollin' Up To Heaven was recorded after Ding Dang? With all the synths it sounds like DD was recorded much later than Rollin'...

A little surprised that released songs were included on a list of "Unreleased" tracks at the top of the thread.  Not sure why.  And while they still remain released, many of those tracks have circulated on boots for many years. Thanks to AGD for including the sources. Maybe the author of the thread could re-compile/update the list complete with sources(?)

Geez, "Sea Cruise" is now unavailable on a formally released CD. It was out for awhile, then discontinued. If it weren't released, albeit briefly, it would be a good addition to the boot list above! Too bad "On Broadway" wasn't recorded and released earlier on 15 Big Ones. And "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" too somewhere.

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears, and she's already working on my brain. I only looked in her eyes, but I picked up something I just can't explain. I, I bet I know what shes like, and I can feel how right shed be for me. Its weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what shes picking up from me. I hope its good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

I would put On Broadway on AGD's list of songs that should be buried, not released.  Grin

It does, which is why I was shocked to learn that it dates from 1973, and RUTH dates from summer 1974. Then again, DD has a similar production to the Spring version of Shortenin' Bread, which was not only recorded the same time, but also erroneously appear on boots of 1976 material!

Yeah... but the 'leggers didn't know what it was, plus it had Carl's lead added - it's usually listed as an LA outtake, but you can clearly hear the girls on bvs, and Brian doing the bass vocal.

My "S" list 'cause you don't agree with me. You guys got no taste.

Actually, I just listened to it again for the first time in years and it does drone on a little bit. But I'd still swap it out with a couple of those 15 Big Ones songs......

Isn't that Brian bass vocal of the same vintage as the Carl lead? The Adult Child sessions right? Or am I wrong about both?

Because that Brian vocal sure doesn't sound like 1973 to me, sounds more like 1976 or 1977.

He sounded like that on "He Came Down", which was recorded a year & a half earlier.

While Wild Honey was the last album to mixed entirely to stereo, singles continued to be mixed to mono - you mention Friends, but also Little Bird.  Was the Bluebirds/Never Learn Not to Love single issued in mono?

You have a true stereo Wild Honey ? My friend, your financial worries are over.  Grin

As for what's mono, what's stereo, and where, may I suggest this site - mono/stereo - which, if I do say so myself, is the proverbial canine's gentalia.

No evidence it was ever recorded. Brian mentioned they might, as a tribute to Murry, but...
