Haha no thanks, others did the same thing for me, so I'm more than happy to be able to share it too! I've got some extra stuff here that is REALLY great! It's the quite hard to get "The Beach Boys - Unsurpassed Masters Vol. 10 (1965)" on Sea Of Tunes, and the box is better known as The alternate Party Album!
Liner Notes:

We are in 1965. Brian Wilson is composing and recording parts of Pet Sounds but Capitol wants a new album for Christmas. Who gave the idea? Mike Love? (he says that) or Brian? Personally I think the idea of an unplugged album came from Brian. No new songs, no studio musicians. An album easy and fast to made and.....we have a number one on billboard!!!

The Beach Boys play all the instruments (with a little help on percussion and Dean Torrence of Jan and Dean singing Barbara Ann) and sing a lot of oldies. With relax and in a few days, they recorded an entire album and could choose what songs should be out. Yes itīs a 60īparty, so call your friends and girlfriends, have some chat and sing your favourite oldies.

Always underrated, this album and these sessions cacht the 60īs spirit. Have a good time and nothing else matters! Why should the songs be perfect? Why should you remeber all the lyrics? You dont need to be a virtuous musician. Its just a party....

When I downloaded it. I only got 4 sec's of "magic transistor radio'...very confusing...

Let there be no confusion; the link I posted to the rarities album is alright, the magic transistor site link given earlier is not! Go on and get it while it's there!

Pssttt don't tell anyone, but someone friendly pointed me to this download:

The Beach Boys - Rarities Vol. 3 contains the Love You Demos in great quality! 'There's a lot more as you can see on the backcover above, but the love you demos consist of: It's Over Now (2 demos), I'm Begging You Please, Let's Put Our Hearts Together, They're Marching Along, Still I Dream Of It, Airplane, I'll Bet He's Nice, Love Is A Woman and Mona!

Took me some time to figure it out too, you gotta click the FREE button instead of the PREMIUM button, wait for 60 seconds (a timer ticks off) then enter the letters and numbers that enter your screen in the box, ans voila! Download this beautiful music that everybody needs to be able to hear, not only the bourgeousie of BB related writers, publishers etc.!

282  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Other Endless Summers or Bummers? on: March 04, 2006, 01:57:48 PM
Not long after Endless Summer, Capitol did it again with The Beatles "Rock N Roll Music" a two record set that even produced a top-40 single ("Got To Get You Into My Life"). This exposed The Beatles to young teens (like myself) to The Beatles music. It was the perfect vehicle for us Wings fans to go back and check out Paul's original band. Of course we all knew the famous hits like "Hey Jude" and "Let It Be" but this big seller let us hear stuff like "Hey Bulldog" and "Slow Down" (in fantasic true stereo sound too).
Of course unlike the Beach Boys, the ex Beatles did not ride the nostalgic wave and continued to ignore their past.

Abba had a large boost in hipness in the early 90's with the huge selling "Gold" that mirrored the "Endless Summer" formula.

Remember that it was not The Beach boys that were first with such a compilation on Capitol, but that capitol had already used the formula with the release of the red and blue beatles comps in 1973, 1962-1966 and 1966-1970. Those were REAL MEGA sellers here in Europe and they reached far more audience than the Rock n Roll Music compilation, even though that one was REAL huge too!

A couple of weeks ago I got myself the Party/Stack-O-Tracks two-fer and actually wondered about the same thing! When did this photoshoot happen and how was Brian at that moment? Cause it's pretty rare, a late 60s BB photo shoot with Brian in attendance! Probably Steven Desper could help us out on this, because of his possible involvement with getting the mastertapes out of the archives for the shoot! Anybody know anything more??

Hey all! I was wondering what excactly is the deal with this album.  It's name pops up every now and then, but it never really goes real deep. I'm asking this because I bumped into two official Dutch CDs by EMI last week. They were 2$ each. Should I pick them up? Anybody else here wanting the other one? PM me if interested!

See ya! Yorick

I agree about Ringo Starr's drumming being underrated. Every drummer at the conservatory I go to slams him, but to me he's perhaps the most effective efficient drummer ever, he just does what fits, nothing more, but isn't that enough?

Every Paul McCartney album between 1970 and now has been underrated, except for Band On The Run. Paul McCarney is possible the most constant artist ever, you really can't go wrong with any of his albums; they all have a certain charm and at least a handfull of great great songs!

You're so true about this! I've always wondered the same thing; why has there never been talk on this tracks and collaboration on general? I truly love the harmonies Brian provides on said songs. Especially In A Heartbeat is a song that is taken to a higher level because of his singing. Brian didn't do the arrangement though, according to the cd liner notes.
289  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian songs 71-75??? on: January 17, 2006, 07:30:29 AM
I'd like to add "Good Timin'" to the list of songs mentioned in this thread. It was tracked in 74 during the farm sessions that also produced the horrible Battle Hymn Of The Republic. I don't know how involved both Brian and Carl were, but it was written way back then for sure. The lead was also tracked then, so the lyrics were written too.
290  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: "Just An Imitation" -- 1973 on: January 10, 2006, 06:21:23 AM
Whaty about the song Pattycake, named after a Gorilla in the New York Zoo Brian visited after Murry died in 73?
