1  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Manson Guitar at Crime Museum on: November 27, 2021, 06:56:38 PM
I went to Tennessee this past weekend for Thanksgiving at my in-laws.  There are a lot of tourist attractions in their part of Tennessee and my daughter asked to go to the Alcatraz East Crime Museum.  During the self-guided tour, I was surprised they had Charles Manson's guitar and a sensational blurb about him and Dennis:

 This may not be of any help, but to my ear the missing words sound like "Once Again"

It would fit with the other lyrics...

"Does it mean I'll never have you...  once again... once again

Also, I agree with the other comment that it very well could be an American or Canadian band.  Do you know how the person who posted to YouTube got the audio?  That could possibly be a good clue...  recorded off college radio, found on a tape given to him, etc.?

That Fats song is great!

Speaking of New Orleans music, I've really gotten into a band called Tuba Skinny lately.  They started out as street musicians there but have gone on to record albums and tour the U.S. and overseas.  My parents both liked New Orleans-style jazz aka Dixieland jazz and I remember hearing bands as a kid at festivals.  Their most recent album, Some-Kinda-Shake, is really good.  Without further ado, my favorite song from the album: https://tubaskinny.bandcamp.com/track/im-going-back-home

The aforementioned album is mostly instrumentals...  I'm still working my way through their catalog, but Pyramid Strut is also a good album that features more jazz and blues vocal numbers:   https://tubaskinny.bandcamp.com/album/pyramid-strut

This one is another song more country than rock, but I heard this the other day and really like their recording of Hard Travelin' (Mandolin Orange now known as Watch House have great harmonies as a duo):  https://youtu.be/iTlMlO7y0Pg

A couple suggestions:  Sin City by the Flying Burrito Brothers, The Swimming Song by Loudon Wainwright III (Earl Scruggs Revue also recorded a nice version)

This post reminded of Mandolin Orange's excellent cover of Boots of Spanish Leather:

From Melbourne's Little Band scene, these are Ronnie & The Rhythm Boys taking "Hey Joe" to its logical conclusion by having different people doing the asking and answering, in this case (if my spies have got it right) Denise Rosenberg and Stuart Grant respectively:

I've always liked his bass vocals at the end of Surfin' Safari "yeah me, with me..."

Yesterday, I watched Hotel Transylvania 3 with my family.  Good Vibrations is played near the end.  Spoiler alert:  The villain controls the kraken in his effort to kill all the monsters by playing an evil song but Dracula's son-in-law counters this by playing positive music...  "Good Vibrations" being his first choice.

The repeating guitar riff sounds similar to my ear.  Thanks for sharing.
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / 1960's Beach Boys Albums / Re: Pet Sounds on: December 21, 2020, 07:45:25 PM
In my Facebook feed, I've been seeing an ad for a double 12" 45 RPM vinyl version of Pet Sounds.  I was interested if any readers have it and what their opinions are.  Honestly I don't even own a vinyl version of Pet Sounds and was wondering what people think of this version vs a sIngle 33 RPM record.

I was listening to West Virginia NPR the other day and they played a Clarinet Concerto by Artie Shaw.  It was a classical music program but in introducing the number, the dj explained he blended elements of classical with jazz.

 It seems like the coda to Surf's Up is about a minute long.  I was wondering if anyone has come across any (live) versions where they carried it out longer?  It always ends too soon for me.

do you happen when this showed up on youtube?

The vidoe on youtube says it was posted three weeks ago

Several years ago my wife and I went out to Glacier National Park in Montana and there was a musician there named David Walburn who put on a real good show.  One of his songs is called Going to the Sun:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dT8jGTbvgO8
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / The Beach Boys Media / 1983 Surf DC Concert on: September 21, 2020, 06:41:31 PM
My parents took me to the June 12, 1983 Beach Boys concert following a Team America concert at RFK stadium.  I don't remember if they sold them or gave them out but I had a poster from the event entitled "Surf DC." I managed to keep the poster through several moves but evidently lost it at some point.  Is there a source somewhere for scans of BB promtional materials?  I have a search agent set up on ebay but so far no luck in finding the poster.

Speaking of Steve Earle, I was sad to hear that his son Justin Townes Earle died at the age of 38 on August 20, 2020.  He had talent:

If you like the classic country sound, check out his The Good Life album.

I finally gave this a good listen.  The whole thing is on youtube:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njCtr_QQ5pQ&list=PLVufYqcrLG4seYvUDwlhv-hkhjbtvjO7J

It's nice to see artists still putting out concept albums.  The first three songs didn't do too much for me but I started digging the album on the fourth track (his version of John Henry was a Steel Driving Man).  Overall I thought it was pretty good with my favorite track being Black Lung.

I see Steve Earle has a new album out, "Ghosts of West Virginia". I listened to some clips on amazon. Sounds really good. Anyone heard it?





Thanks. I'm glad you liked it!



Thanks a lot for posting about it.  I've since pulled out my copy of El Corazon.  Great album (good songs with a lot of variety).  What are your favorite Steve Earle album(s)?

23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Unpopular Beach Boys opinions on: July 25, 2020, 04:21:33 PM
A couple possibly unpopular opinions:
- I usually appreciate the falsetto but in Hawaii, it's a bit too high/too much for my taste
- To my ear, the chorus in Heroes and Villains doesn't fit real well with the rest of the song

I have a bunch of CDs in the basement and have been going down there lately to pick something to listen to.  I had pretty much forgotten about the Smoking Popes but I think this is a decent listen if you like pop-punk.
