Sorry but vocally it's about time is god-awful. Christian love should not be singing that song he does not have a strong voice he's flat Bland and a shade Behind the Music too. What has happened to this band?

I think it's August, maybe September. Google it just to be sure, but it's not out here in NJ yet.

I found the Goldmine issue, am checking daily for the Record Collector issue, and just found the current Shin Dig issue with the 5th Dimension so I at least know my bookstore carrys it.

Well as we all know Mike has always been a stickler for song sequencing in concert so it could well be.

Here's an amazing article about what he's been up to all these years...what a story!

I would also agree that the pre/post recorded vocals are just awful. They sound great, but it doesn't even sound like the Boys. It truly does sound like Jeff Fosket....just listen to Surfer Girl...outside of Brian's vocal on the solo, it's all Jeff.

Wow thanks for sharing that tip on behold the night. That was amazing

The towers on Newbury in Boston was tremendous!

I wonder what Bruce gets paid for his contribution to the live Act. Got to be the easiest gig and rock and roll for years and years and years now.
85  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2021 Feel Flows World Tour Thread on: August 06, 2021, 11:16:26 AM
Even though this is an audience recording to me it sounds worse than Elk Grove.
86  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2021 Feel Flows World Tour Thread on: August 05, 2021, 12:30:17 PM
Dude, this is no attack on Mike Love, at least from me. Mind you, I don't care for the guy or his antics, but that has nothing to do with what I wrote. They sounded bad, even the younger guys and Christian in particular. Listen to the show, and what this great band has accomplished in the past. I don't believe additional "practicing" from more performances will improve much here, frankly, they sound lousy, and just  tired and old. If I owned the Beach Boys name, there's no way I would allow this act to rip apart a once proud legacy. Case closed.

Al is on the tag, A Childrens Song, and that tag is AWESOME! I think the bygone bygone, sounds like it could be a female....maybe Marilyn Wilson? Always wondered who that was singing it too.

Just re watched the video and it was Cowsil who sang the Add Some Music parts, and not real well. Watching alot of the rest of the so, I must add that IMHO Christian Love is a real weak spot in the vocals. Don't know what he contributes on the guitar, but vocally, his leads are weak, generally lagging behind the music a beat, and extremely bland. He now does the lead on Rhonda, and it remains a weak spot. Nepatism at it's best I guess, but the other guys in the vocal blend don't sound much better. Hard to believe the name f this band is the Beach Boys...such a downgrade from what I remember growing up in the 60s'/70s, not to mention the live performances in the 80's and 90's. Very weak.
89  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2021 Feel Flows World Tour Thread on: August 05, 2021, 04:14:34 AM
To your point, Scott sounds like he sang a portion of add some music to your day and he didn't sound good at all, very rough. And the guy who sings the falsetto part now who usually has been pretty good in the past just sounds like he's screeching now. Boy at 80 years old can Mike ust hang this up  already, what he's doing to the beach boy name and Legacy is awful.

I watched some of that Elk Grove concert and I have to tell you it really is not good. Mike and Bruce just don't sound good at all. And I have to say Christian love just doesn't sound right singing some of the songs, he does sing lead on it's about time and just doesn't do a good job on it. He seems too slow and too bland. It's a shame what's happened with this band now
91  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love and Carl's last tour on: August 03, 2021, 05:05:18 AM
I don't know if Mike gained control of the Beach Boys in the early 90s as much as Carl just let go of his portion of control. Seems he was content with all that was going on in the Beach Boys wortld and his own personal world to seed the day-to-day business functions of the Beach Boys over to Mike. That included the direction that Mike wanted to take the band in. It just seemed like Carl was more resigned to the fact that the Beach Boys had become more or less an oldies group and wanted to make sure that the shows on stage were as professional as great as they could be. But it seemed like Carl had lost his interest in trying to keep the Beach Boys creative and current which of course fed mikes fire. Never quite understood why Carl was not more aggressive in his leadership of the band as much as he was with Beckley Lamm and Wilson

If only SOS with Dennis on lead vocals had been saved. I always have hope that o every it may actually surface.
93  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2021 Feel Flows World Tour Thread on: July 25, 2021, 11:44:20 AM
Same here I don't hear any comparison to Carl's voice and Christians. He just has a bland kind of annoying voice. As much as I dislike Bruce's voice I also would prefer if he just sang these songs live on lead
94  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2021 Feel Flows World Tour Thread on: July 23, 2021, 05:27:15 PM
Christian did an OK job on feel flows certainly better than he did on it's about time, still he sounds a bit flat on feel flows at times. Something about his voice that I just don't dig.
95  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Acapulco Girls on: July 23, 2021, 05:21:38 PM
A big UGH! And I really like Mariachi music too....but this...forget it.
96  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2021 Feel Flows World Tour Thread on: July 23, 2021, 05:54:09 AM
Sadly, I agree with you, I would venture to say that the vast majority, probably 90% or more of those  in attendance, had never heard It's About Time, or Feel Flows for that matter, nd were likely lookin at each other like "what's this, Where's Little Duece Coup!"
97  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Beach Boys after Carl's death on: July 22, 2021, 04:13:29 AM
Along with that lucky old Sun my favorites would be no peer pressure and Imagination. I also have a warm spot for Gershwin and the Disney album as well
98  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2021 Feel Flows World Tour Thread on: July 20, 2021, 04:19:57 AM
It's about time is a great song. Dennis really did a great job writing that one and Carl of course did a great job singing it. Christian love doesn't do it justice but I think the band played it fairly well. If you notice the crowd looks like really indifferent, almost confused,, like " what the heck song is this they're playing?"
99  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Track Talk #8: California Saga/California on: July 12, 2021, 04:38:10 AM
Always loved California as a New Jersey kid but this was the song that really got me yearning to go to Big Sur. And have been fortunate to have been there now a few times. Simply put probably the most beautiful spot in the continental US. Love it there

Got some great Tunes today including rock and roll to the rescue and good timin back-to-back. And then a Dennis Wilson back-to-back play with forever and do you want to dance. Pretty cool for my 35 minutes on today
