something just came to me about this whole Dennis Wilson situation. now this may be far fetched but WHAT IF the Beach Boys are releasing a new album next year and they are saving a couple of his songs to finish and place it on there, Ala: Free as a bird or Soul Searchin'. just a thought. but of course if one of them sees this. that may not be a bad idea, plus an unreleased Carl song too..hint hint...

I was watching an old movie called "The Naked Kiss" from 1964 when all of a sudden a song starts up and it sounded familiar. as it went along I realized that it is the same song as "Daddy Dear"..here you go, enjoy...

I would like to see a Brians Back Era cd set, 3 cds remixed, first disc would be 15 BOs with the songs originally recorded for it but were left off as bonus songs, and demos and alt takes. disc 2 with Love You and as bonus tracks all the tracks done as Stack O Tracks and disc 3 more demos,early Love You mixes, single mixes, and Adult Child. but please don't wait for 2027 for an anniversary release , this one should be released within the next couple years, should be an ACTUAL cd, and not just a download only release. HINT HINT!!

this song kind of reminds me of a Ray Stevens song, a tongue and cheek comedy type song, with the lyrics purposely written this way at an attempt at humor. probably meant to not be taken serious and lighten the mood a little.

I thought Brian was the one that has an obsession with "Shortening Bread"...  LOL

I find it interesting that he's OK with a hologram tour but won't (as far as we know) reunite with the actual REAL Beach Boys?
8  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Album Discussion Thread on: May 10, 2018, 08:36:29 PM


And this one thinks Brian and Mike are still touring together (nevermind the hologram foolishness):

Unless they are reuniting and they haven't announced it yet..  Shocked

So ... anyway ... I'm still shocked by two revelations from this whole discussion:
1.) People actually read that Nancy comic? I've always lumped it in with Family Circus and skipped it.
2.) Now that the comic referenced the Beach Boys, do I have to go back and read 80-some years of strips to get the payoff?

Some strips are still in the newspaper because of name recognition, like the strips you mentioned. Most have run their course but have such popular name recognition that they are still there... Garfield is a good example of that..
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: WIBN in final (?) Nancy comic strip on: February 20, 2018, 05:16:22 PM
I've never read Nancy before, but if the humour has consistently been of this calibre  then why are they ending it?

Surely there are at least another 85  years of side splitting gags like the one show cased above.





Actually  Nancy ran its course decades ago, in fact there was a time period in the 80's and 90's when all they did was redo vintage Nancy strips word for word just with updated clothing and modern day background scenery..then they got caught and there was some controversy and they then started doing new original strips which apparently didn't last long since it has now ended.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys session at Abbey Road 2018 on: February 19, 2018, 03:44:40 PM
I have a feeling it may be Pet Sounds, or at least that makes sense to me.. Although what I want to see is a 2 disc release with Pet Sounds and highlights from Smile on disc 1 and hits and underrated classics on disc 2...
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1970: The Beach Boys vs. The Beatles on: February 12, 2018, 06:22:53 PM
We should consider continuing with the Beatles solo stuff vs the beach boys and their solo stuff continuing from 1970 on.
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Love you instruments? on: January 06, 2018, 02:09:16 PM
I would love to see a complete remix of the album  using todays technology, as well as all the songs as  stack o tracks...

Nice ,the cover was done by comic strip artist Guy Gilchrist..  ; D

From Lee's post on PSF:

According to the new winter edition of Endless Summer Quarterly, published today:

Sunshine Tomorrow 2 - 29 additional tracks from the Smiley Smile sessions, the Lei'd in Hawaii Wally Heider Studio sessions, and the Wild Honey sessions, including the unreleased "Good News"
Live Sunshine - 109 performances from 7 shows in 5 states during the 1967 tour

109 performances? How many discs is this going to be...lol

https://solobeatles.com/2012/03/12/solo-beatles-1-singles/

To say the the solo releases of the Beatles only had 3 memorable songs is not true, just check out the above link and as of 2012 the solo releases (and Wings), collectively, add up to 20 number one hits..and there are also memorable songs not even on that list can you say "Give peace a chance"," starting over" and "watching the wheels" just to mention a couple that are obviously memorable. Comparing the Beach Boys with the Beatles are like comparing apples to oranges. They both have their merits,.

Unleash the love has now beaten the Eagles greatest hits as the biggest selling album of all times....  LOL
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 2017 copyright extension release details? on: November 27, 2017, 07:26:09 PM
I thought that "1967" was that release....

I'm glad someone brought up K-tell because that was something I was thinking too.. K-tell was a record label that used to sign "has been" oldies bands and singers to re-record their hit songs in usually crappy rearrangements on cheap studio equipment sometimes with synths, the reason for this is because they couldn't actually use the original masters because the original record companies who originally signed them owned the masters. So we get people like Little Richard, Herman's Hermits, The Classics 4, Jerry Lee Lewis and Jan and Dean rerecording their songs so they can get them released through K-tell (and other smaller labels) also can anyone say "Mike and Dean" lol...not only that but it seems Love is pulling a Ray Stevens, if you notice Stevens has rerecorded ALL of his hits but not only that but he keeps on rereleasing his newer songs from the 80's and 90's on ALL of his new albums mixed in with brand new songs...

I love that movie..very underrated...
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Paley Sessions Discussion Thread on: November 15, 2017, 02:13:00 PM
I wonder if Carl was thinking that the Paley stuff sounded TOO vintage sounding,too 60's and maybe thought they sounded dated..of course that's the part of the songs I like best and I hope Brian does one more Wall of sound 60's sounding CD soon..it seem Carl was into the more mello A&R type stuff in line with Chicago and Christopher Cross while the BB were doing songs with heavy drum machines, heavy synths and heavy guitars..the Paley stuff sounded more like Today or Summer Days/Nights than Problem Child,...


23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: VDP on Twitter on: November 10, 2017, 10:16:06 AM
I wonder if VDP's attitude towards Brian these days goes back to OCA? I recall an interview where VDP talked about touring with BW in support of the album. Is Van Dyke bitter because that didn't happen?
Denny Laine made the mistake of talking to a writer back in the 80's sort of "off the record", and then those stories ended up in the tabloids. Denny never has an unkind word for McCartney these days, but it seems it is too little, too late. Macca seems to be in touch with other ex-Wings like Denny Seiwell, but Laine is like...well, it's like he never existed.


The same with Pete Best... it's unfortunate because I would have loved to have seen Pete Best on the Beatles anthology series speaking with Paul, George and Ringo about the early years..oh well...

"All the love in Paris" isn't too bad, kind of reminds me of "don't worry baby" and the sax part is pretty cool. It sounds like it could have fit on "still cruisin".

"Unleash the love" is okay, not horrible though, even though it sounds like he has a crap load of autotune on his voice.

"Darlin" is a remake, not as good as the original, sounds like it could have been on the " Nascar" CD..
