Early 2000's CourtTV segment about Brian Wilson and Dr. Eugene Landy, and subsequent legal battles to remove Landy as his guardian through a Wilson family lawsuit, and establish a conservatorship over Wilson's finances and remove Landy from Brian's Will and Testament.

i have an issue of Uncut magazine from june 1998 where Brian briefly discusses this topic: "i had about 80 songs i wrote that were stolen - the tapes and the lyrics - in 1992.  someone made off with those tapes, some idiot. 82 songs. i can't remember them. i don't remember my songs too well. the sweet insanity stuff? exactly. and other songs i worked on for 2 years. i can remember some of the titles. 'Actors and Players' was one." there is no sign of this song on any recent bootlegs. still, brian sings a verse: "'elton john and the moody blues/huey lewis and the news/you can find me out there yelling for more/rock n roll i just adore it/rock n roll i came here for it' but the rest of the song i can't remember because it was stolen."

yeah, he had a weird look there in '93...away from Landy by that point but looking worse than when he was w/ Landy.

i think that Baywatch Nights is fake/fan-made. doesn't seem legit

Yeah, the Somewhere Near Japan music video is a good one. low-key with imagery that compliments the song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LE3dpoTOvA

In one interview i read before, Brian mentioned names/lyrics of a few songs that he remembered from around that period that he didn't have recordings of anymore. I think Landy probably took off with a lot of that stuff after the separation. After he died, Alexandra Morgan sold off a bunch of BW stuff that Landy had kept. Those SI cassettes that have surfaced came from her.

There were 2 mixes, both w/ different track listings. Some of the same songs appear on both but w/ some minor variations (like some brass, backing vocals, & assorted weird effects being removed on songs like Don't Let Her Know... & Water Builds Up on the 2nd mix).

There used to be an upload on youtube of the audio directly from the cassette. As good as the bootlegs are, the actual cassette seemed to sound much clearer.

If they didn't wanna release it then, i doubt they will now.

Add to that timeline, and I realize I've talked about this before but it's relevant - In an interview with Brian conducted August 1995, he mentioned inviting the Beach Boys to his house for a listening party so he could play them more of the tracks he was working up. And despite them being described as "enthusiastic" to work again with Brian, they all canceled on him and didn't show up. That hurt Brian, and add that Aug 1995 interview to several where he says he wants to work with The Beach Boys, and had material which he was excited to present and actively working on with Paley and Was, yet the band seemed to balk if not be outright rude about even listening to it, let alone cutting more tracks. It did hurt Brian, he says it hurt him to have these cancellations and whatnot, and yet he kept saying he wanted to work with them.

At some point, isn't it a natural reaction for someone who keeps hearing "no" and can't even get his own band to come to his place to listen to new songs to just say "f*** this" and move on? The fact his brother was one of the louder voices in all of this had to hurt even more.

Wow. Compare and contrast to 1966/67 when Brian's friends would eagerly come over for listening parties when he'd invite them. How much of a let down must that have been to see how much everything had changed in his life. Brian thrives off of good vibes and excitement from others when sharing his music. And the friends who attended the SMiLE acetate listening parties were the ones that Brian's mates (at least Mike?) labelled as leaches or not good for Brian to be associated with, yet those friends seemed to be so much more supportive than Brian's own family/bandmates when one compares these experiences. So very sad.

That's a good comparison to draw - In the mid 60's Brian hosted these listening parties where he wanted to play whatever new music he was working on for friends and associates and get their reactions. It was the first time Van Dyke Parks personally interacted with Brian, at a listening party where David Crosby took Van Dyke to hear advance mixes of the Sloop John B single.

Then in 1995, Brian's own band shines on him.

Keep the year 1995 in mind as there is more to be said about the timeline and the years in which all of this was happening.

The yr Brian called Carl an asshole. There's also an interview from around that time where, if i recall correctly, Brian tells Melinda that he wants to buy a monkey cause they fling sh*t at people  LOL

yea, i actually discovered the original video and posted about this awhile ago. The song in the studio is Baywatch Nights. http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,24864.msg623005.html#msg623005

looks like '89
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Paley Sessions Discussion Thread on: November 05, 2017, 09:06:57 AM
I don't know, it's subjective I guess. It just seemed uneasy to me, Brian as you sai d fragile from the recent Landry escape, talking repeatedly about how scared he was.  I can see Carl realizing after a period of time that the situation wasn't the best. I'm completely speculating of course

that makes sense. it's easy to see why Carl had such thoughts like thinking that Brian wouldn't be up to doing a Pet Sounds tour back then.

The song Unleash the Love can be apparently be dated to as far back as this period, as Mike mentions that it's one of the most commercial things he's conceived of and that Brian loves the lyrics.
