Looks like LBWL has been pulled from download/streaming services. Wonder if 43 North Broadway got in trouble? Embarrassed

My pet theory is that Iconic has bought the rights and are preparing a deluxe reissue for its 50th anniversary this October

Is there any reason why we haven’t seen sessions from Summer Days and Today released officially?

I assume nothing recorded at that time needs to be released for copyright reasons. The only outtake that comes to mind is Sandy/Sherry which was a hybrid release on Made in California.

According to Mark Linett some years back, they proposed the idea of a 1965 set to Capitol, but clearly the powers that be didn't feel it was worth doing.

I'd love to be able to download the mp3's PLUS order the book (physical or digital). But unfortunately not possible. Never play cd's or vinyl, always transfer to mp3. Don't get me wrong, been a fan and bought vinyl ever since 1965, but times have changed...

I've seen there's Hi-Res mp3 available. Any information on that? The quality compared to cd/vinyl?

Qobuz lists a FLAC download for around £55, which is lossless format, higher quality than mp3. However you can rip FLAC files from the CD anyway with a computer.

The a capella version of Surf's Up.

Oh my lord.

https://www.qobuz.com and search for the Feel Flows set. Then scroll through the tracks and purchase the track. Only that and Big Sur are available for now.


Yeah it's been up for a couple days. I bought it on Wednesday. Odd that it hasn't been officially mentioned or added to streaming yet. But hey, I'm not complaining. The cleanest Child coda yet more than satisfies me.

I can understand why they weren't a part of this set, but I would love for the mono promo mixes of Susie Cincinatti and Add Some Music to turn up on an end of year copyright dump Wink I'm guessing maybe the next mix of the former on the box will mirror this in stereo - we'll soon know!

For me, the big missing thing is Silly Walls, that Wilson/Sandler thing. They included Awake, and It's Natural is a Brian/Sandler thing according to Don Goldberg's book. A bit sad they missed out on the third one - my favourite of the two that circulate.
To be clear, I am incredibly excited for the set, it's just this one omission I'm a bit bummed by.

Why has Dennis not been recognized after all these years and decades?

Didn't the Pacific Ocean Blue reiussue do really well? It's a cult classic now. Bambu got a standalone Record Store Day release. Among general music-lovers, it's safe to say he's the second most well known Beach Boy.

So I pre-ordered the 4 LP colored vinyl, are there any differences from the CD version? Also, I ordered from the BB website it says it going to ship on July 30th, I thought pre-ordering you'd get it the day of, but will probably have to wait until sometime in August right?

The differences between the LPs and CDs, some tracks are shorter mixes (Live Again for example is presumably missing the jam ending). HOWEVER, one track seems to be longer. The Live in 1971 It's About Time seems to be 10 seconds longer on the LP than the CD. In addition, some tracks are labelled as "2019" mix on the CD and "2020" on the LP or vice verse. However that might just be a clerical error.

California Saga's single mix is pretty readily available on Spotify as part of Best of the Brother Years

Any chance we could get some insight from one of our honoured guests regarding the amazon UK box set situation  Smiley

It's available for pre-order from HMV right now if you don't want to wait for Amazon
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: June 03, 2021, 05:54:08 AM
You can order the box set as an MP3 right now on amazon as an MP3 but not the physical copy. So strange.



The physical copy *was* up for a while, even as recently as this morning. I left for a couple hours and when I got home it was gone. I assume that's just to do with the big things happening soon(tm)

This sounds not too bad. Makes me hopeful for where digital extraction will be in a few years. All around a good sounding mix, with some oddities in the backing vocals by my ear. Though that last part seems an inevitable consequence of digital extraction

I’ve got it on Spotify.

Re the sound. Keep in mind in all likelihood this was all recorded on devices, cell phones etc and mixed in house...literally ‘in house’. I wonder if a studio was used at all?

A lot of this was recorded years ago. That version of She Believes in Love Again, for example, comes from around 2007 at least. Ram Raj sounds like a different mix of the version on Unleash the Love in 2017.

If you look at The Beatles or Lennon, their teams have been doing this stuff for a long time. Yellow Submarine toys, etc ...

Already got some good ideas.

  • A bean-bag chair themed around mid-70s Brian.
  • Al Jardine circa 1972 novelty beard.
  • Pet Sounds branded pianoguitar
  • Given that it's legal now in a good few states, Mrs O'Leary's Cow branded Cannabis.
  • A plain beige MIU branded floormat for practising TM

Frankly the fact that I haven't been hired yet astounds me

Where can I hear that snippet?

At the very end of the Child Is Father of the Man track on the 2018 Friends set.
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Contact for Mark Linnett and or Alan Boyd? on: March 21, 2021, 10:39:06 AM
Hi, I was wondering if anyone could recommend the best way to go about contacting Beach Boys archivists Mark Linnett and Alan Boyd? I realise that they probably don't want to be bothered directly by BBs archive enquiries so this may be a long shot, but I'm asking just in case anyone has any pointers. My enquiry regards checking to see if they were aware of a particular BB archive item for potential use in future projects. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

Well, according to his profile, Mark Linett has been active on this forum as of at least yesterday. Alan Boyd was last on the Endless Harmony forum yesterday as well. I'm sure they would notice a post on either. This "BB archive item" sounds very interesting though.
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Looking Back With Love - Official Release on: March 05, 2021, 11:33:58 AM
What's interesting is that, According to Amazon, this went up on February 16th. Two days before the Iconic Artists deal was announced.
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: March 03, 2021, 07:58:37 AM
Well, Mike&Bruce did play "All I wanna do", "Forever" (though with Stamos), "Disney Girle (1957)", and I believe even "Surf's Up" in concert, so who knows. I was just trying to keep the expectations down based on the Wild Honey tour.

I don't believe I've seen a Mike and Bruce Surf's Up (Though the whole touring band did participate in the Fendertones rendition), but 'Til I Die was part of their setlist a while back.

Ohh... Well do you think that is the one mentioned in interviews and what not?


Mark Linett said that it's a version of I'm In Great Shape from the Durrie Parks acetates.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Dark, Gritty Beach Boys Miniseries on: February 26, 2021, 05:12:26 AM
Small point, I know, but wouldn't the Honeys be reuniting way earlier. They put out their album while Dennis was still alive.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Unreleased Songs Masterlist: Material to expect from further archival releases on: December 19, 2020, 01:58:46 PM
I don't know the likelihood of seeing new releases on material more than 50 years old, but below is my dream list. I know some of this will be released on Feel Flows, but I'm hoping the rest will surface someday.

-Please Let Me Wonder backing track
-Please Let Me Wonder a cappella
-Kiss Me Baby backing track
-The Little Girl I Once Knew unedited sessions
-The Little Girl I Once Knew backing track
-All unedited Pet Sounds tracking sessions
-All Pet Sounds multi tracks
-We're Together Again backing track for original twofer version
-All I Wanna Do a cappella
-All I Wanna Do backing track
-Our Sweet Love backing track
-At My Window a cappella
-At My Window backing track
-Cool Cool Water backing track
-All Cool Cool Water vocal sessions (a la Stephen Desper's fascinating and sorely missed study video)


Is the TLGIOK backing track even possible? From what I recall it was partially taped over with that "psychedelic talk" tape.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: November 23, 2020, 06:09:52 AM
I'm normally not a begging man, but I could really do with Mr Edelson showing up and confirming whether this is a "1969 Recordings" situation here. If so, I would like to say that the Rolling Stone's management are officially pure evil for normalising this practise.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: November 22, 2020, 08:44:49 AM
Happy to hear the great news from Howie.

I wonder if this allmusic entry (great find, hapman!) is for what is/would have been the copyright dump?

All I'm saying is that 1996, the Republicans lost. The Pet Sounds box was delayed. 2012, the Republicans lost, Made in California was delayed.
