I only post on this board once in a blue moon, but it's worth posting on here to say that this thread is fucking nuts!

Having listened to the samples a few times i'm actually very much looking forward to listening to this. I don't mind the sound of the productuon either, i'd rather not listen to something full of BW cliche trademarks (bass harmonica etc) just for the sake of it.

Got a few requests for SMiLE A.D. 4.0.

Here it is: https://www.sendspace.com/file/6zq6ch

If u guys need any of the other remixes, just let me know and I'll re-upload em!

Thanks for this, I haven't posted here for ages but felt prompted to do so as I listened to this last night. It's bloody good, very creative, love the ghostly vocals added into the instrumental tracks. I also like the fact that some of the tracks are edited a bit which stops them getting too tedious.

I'm in Devon - it's fine where I am but the coast looks a bit dire..

You know, record label PR usually inform fans that exclusives are being premiered on mainstream radio. Grrr.

With most bands maybe...but this is the Beach Boys.....  Roll Eyes

Ahhhhhh bollocks - when does it go up on iplayer?!

Maybe later today?

Nice spot!

Paul O'Grady played the 2012 stereo version of Good Vibrations on Sunday too… (along with TWGMTR and GOK).

BBC Radio 2 does us proud from time to time!

Really? How cool, I usually listen to him whilst I'm cooking my tea but obviously missed that bit this week!

By the way, here is the link to what they played on the show, interesting that again it is credited to Brian though he did sound like the only person singing on the track to be fair....
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b038h397#segments

First impressions were that I would very much like to hear this again, nice waltz song, some of the phrasing reminded me a little of 'she's leaving home' but my ears may have been deceiving me....

I was just having a cup of tea and listening to the radio and was astounded to hear a song come on which was 'where is she', my digital radio said 'by Brian Wilson' which was also what the presenter Vanessa Feltz said. Anyway was brilliant to hear a song sung by Brian from that era,as its my favourite era for his voice. I am sure the programme will be on the iPlayer soon enough....
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Band albums - check: anyone up for top 5 solo releases ? on: November 28, 2012, 01:11:15 PM
My favourites - though I would say only the first two get regular airings...

1. Orange Crate Art
2. Reimagines Gershwin
3. Brian Wilson
4. Imagination
5. That lucky old sun

the lamb lies down on broadway has to be the best concept album ever done right? Smiley what are your favorite genesis songs?
peter did a beautiful job with them but phil carried them and did great work with them as well Smiley

The Lamb is great, but not my alltime favourite, would probably put Selling England by the pound first. Favourites from the era being Cinema show, Firth of fifth, Can Utility and the coastliners, Musical Box, Suppers Ready etc...the usual suspects really. I really like Trespass too, it sometimes gets written off but some of the songs - Dusk, Stagnation, White Mountain etc...are brilliant.

Trick of the tail is great too, and most of Wind and Wuthering. ATTWT has grown on me throughout the years, there's a few which wash over me but overall it has a pretty similar sound to the preceding two albums which I quite like (though a lot less 12 string). Agree about Hacketts albums 'Acolyte' is a real beauty.
12  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Favorite Progressive Rock Band :) on: June 01, 2012, 01:11:15 AM
I enjoy bits of Yes, but for me the early 70s Genesis era (Trespass through to the Lamb) is one of my favourite eras of any band ever. I got into Genesis in my teens around the same time I got into the BB, and for me they weren't a million miles apart in terms of intricate and interesting chords and multisectional songs. The BB were an influence for Tony Banks so I guess that figures.
I saw the Genesis tribute band 'The Musical Box' 3 times, and the first time I saw them might be my favourite gig ever (and thats over Brian doing PS or Smile), it really is some of the most beautiful music ever created by anyone. I like the first few post Gabriel albums as well but some of their early 80s stuff is a bit iffy for me though I have a soft spot for 'Invisible Touch' as it was an album of my childhood...
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: New album info (as it rolls out...) on: May 31, 2012, 06:07:57 AM
If it is the last Beach Boys album, then far better that this album should be it than either 'Stars'n'stripes', 'Summer in Paradise', 'Still Cruisin' or 'BB85' (or even KTSA) depending on your definition of what was the last 'proper' Beach Boys album.
14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: California Saga - The next generation on: May 25, 2012, 12:11:57 AM
I think it is a really cool idea, if they want to sing those songs then good for them and if their voices can manage that Beach Boys blend then all the better.

just saw this tweet

Marcello Carlin ‏@marcellocarlin
Track from new Beach Boys album on the radio and they've just namechecked "Good Vibrations" in the lyric #ohdear

poor poor choice. oh well.  i suppose it's expected. 

Yeah, it (Spring Vacation) got played on BBC Radio 2 last night on the drivetime show - I was quite surprised..!
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: New album info (as it rolls out...) on: May 23, 2012, 04:59:33 AM
I'm generally liking what I hear so far, even the songs I thought were duffers at first are growing on me. That could be just a symptom of being starved of new Beach Boys product for most of my life though...
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Who else thinks that Spring Vacation would make a good 2nd single? on: May 23, 2012, 04:57:21 AM
Agree with a lot of the sentiments about SV, although it's kind of a guilty pleasure for me - I like the chords of the verses.

My vote for 2nd single would go to Isn't It Time.

Yeah, 'Isn't it time' sounds great. It has a sort of 80s Beach Boys feel ('It's gettin' late' or something) but has that kind of plinky-plonk Brian rhythmic groove to it.

Hi Luther
I use Logic (version 6 at the moment) it doesn't really matter to get the latest version as such as if the rest of you equipment (like my mac) are old anyway. I've been using Logic for years and I think it's great, you can get the older versions quite easily on ebay. Never used protools at all...
Cheers
Matt

Hey, I like this...!
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Other Pop Composers Who Have Written in Sections? on: November 15, 2011, 03:38:24 PM
Quite a few of Freddie Mercurys early songs are written in this 'sectional' style - listen to 'March of the Black Queen' and 'My Fairy King' to hear good examples of this. The sections never repeat either just one new thing after another, totally mindblowing...some more examples would be 70s Black Sabbath especially around the time of 'sabbath bloody sabbath' and 'sabotage' - great multisectional songs there. Also early Genesis - 'Suppers Ready' and 'the musical box' being fine examples...
