Bought Bali on eBay last week for £3.79. Listening now. Excellent.

Is the reissue available as a high res download? I canít find it anywhere.
3  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / SMiLE sessions and BWPS in High Res on: July 31, 2018, 03:24:14 PM
I note that HD tracks no longer offers TSS in high resolution audio. Does anyone know if that or BWPS is available in a high res format anywhere else?
Thanks.

Gotta say I love the Brian Wilson album cover.
Me too (check my avatar)! It was this cover art, on the cassette, that got me to buy this album back in 1988, as a young teen with little disposable income... I liked the cover and loved what I heard.

And that's why I'm posting on this board nearly 30 years later.  Smiley
First BB/BW related album I ever bought too.

It's not easy being me or chain reaction of love.

Surprised there has not been more of a reaction to this on smiley, negative or positive.

Can anyone confirm if all or any of Brian's band are on a retainer?
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson 2016 Tour Thread (Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Tour) on: May 28, 2016, 12:30:09 AM
The Glasgow show was poor. It gives me no pleasure to report. Of the 20 odd Brian shows I'very seen this was easily the worst. Brian was just not there. Vocal flubs, missed cues, bad phrasing, he gave up on I know there's an answer. The band seemed to lack energy. The sound had none of the definition and precision I've come to expect. Matt sounded wonderful but was mixed too low. It was uncomfortable 90% of the time. I say this as someone who has seen some transcontent Brian shows, at least 3 of which are in my top 5 concerts I've ever been too.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Beach Boys - Love (fanmix album) on: April 16, 2016, 02:37:56 PM
This is just fucking great! Amazing that those that appreciate this music can now get creatively involved with it. Maybe technology does has some redeeming features. Bravo!
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary on: March 18, 2016, 02:06:16 PM
I think I'm done with buying Pet Sounds. There's practically no way of justifying buying it again in any format. Not done with listening to it though and looking forward to seeing Brian perform it (again) in Glasgow.
13  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: The Kinks Discussion and Appreciation Thread on: March 16, 2016, 01:57:51 PM
I combined the best songs from Act 1 & Act 2 and it's a pretty decent tracklisting.
Still keeps fairly well to the concept of the piece.

1. Preservation (single)
2. Daylight
3. Sweet Lady Genevieve
4. There's A Change In The Weather
5. Where Are They Now?
6. Sitting In The Midday Sun
7. When A Solution Comes
8. Sheperds Of The Nation
9. Second-Hand Car Spiv
10. Mirror Of Love
11. Artificial Man
12. Salvation Road
You can't leave Nothing Lasts Forever out, its beautiful.

Rest in Peace to a man who has left us with an immortal gift, beautiful music. He will never be forgotten in the annals of music history for the skill and professionalism with which he used to craft and create a beautiful gift for us all. Deaths like this always make me think of one of my favourite poems by Mary Elizabeth Frye:

Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there; I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle Autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush. I am the swift uplifting rush. Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there; I did not die.

RIP Sir Martin, 2016 has been a rough year for music buffs for sure Sad
wow, I've never read that before. Beautiful expression of death. I'll miss George.

When are you releasing your rock and roll album?
16  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: What bands should settle differences and get together one more time? on: February 06, 2016, 01:46:46 PM
I'm surprised the Kinks ain't been mentioned. I'm a huge fan but don't really want to see a reunion. I'm not a fan of reunions. Ray has done a couple of fine solo albums, I'd be up for a few more. I didn't even get excited for the Bb's reunion, liked TWGMTR though. I'm more than happy with BW's solo career and certainly don't clamour for another reunion. Sorry. I also loved walking into Clarksdale by Plant and Page and I would be happy to see them work together again without the weight of a Zep reunion.
17  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: 2016 New Music on: February 03, 2016, 01:14:32 PM
The new Suede album 'Night Thoughts', the second of their millennial comeback. It's  much better than their last album 'Bloodsports' which was quite a dull disappontment. They've come roaring back, and This one is a seamless epic, with all tracks bleeding into the next with big arena-size hooks and gobs of drama. It's all very over-the-top in the best entertaining way. If you've never tried their music, this is a fine entry point.
will be picking this one up this week, big Suede fan. Is the accompanying dvd good?
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Last Great/Decent Brian Vocal on: February 03, 2016, 11:53:38 AM
Your imagination, Colours of the Wind, The like in I love you, Pacific Coast Highway, This Beautiful Day, to mention only a few more recent efforts. Yup, he's still my favourite singer.
19  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Celebrating David Bowie - what are your favorite songs? on: January 15, 2016, 02:05:40 PM
Beside all his best known songs, which I like as well, there's:

The Bewlay Brothers
his cover of Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere

and his new/final album Black Star has made a big impression,
not simply because of the circumstances surrounding it (though it plays a role)
but because I find it awesome.  
There ought to be a thread dedicated to the best final albums by artists who knew that
they were making their last album.

Interesting (to me anyway) that he was born in '47 and Black Star was his 47th album,
and that his career really began to take off in '69 and he died at the age of 69....  
You'll be missed Mr. Jones.

Warren Zevon's The Wind is a fantastic last album. Sad, funny, uplifting and despairing. A truly incredible last statement directly addressing his impending step into the ether.
20  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Zappa's \ on: January 02, 2016, 02:34:02 PM
Zappa is wonderful  however I have never enjoyed his music stoned and I love a lot of it. I just prefer it straight. Mind you I'm more of a Broadway the Hard Way guy than 200 Motels.
21  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: 2015 New Releases on: January 02, 2016, 02:28:00 PM
Richard Hawley, Hollow Meadows, give it a listen, this guy is consistently excellent. I would think any BW aficionado will appreciate the songwriting and production. While your at it, Lowedges and Coles Corner are unrecognized classics. As Richard would say 'lets ballad!'.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson on: December 21, 2015, 12:55:50 PM
Eh what?
23  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Do You Still Listen to the Old Classics? on: December 19, 2015, 06:03:08 AM
Just recently got the Beatles mono box so the old classics are on heavy rotation.

She was/is deranged. A seriously disturbed deeply unpleasant individual. I don't know who the barred but some of the most offensive individuals are still there. They took down one of my posts saying I was leaving probably because of the 100+ comments of bile which followed but I can't be sure.
25  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: IJWMFTT Facebook Page on: December 17, 2015, 01:54:28 AM
Yep, everyone is entitled to an opinion but spewing foul mouthed hatred in response to every comment and posting abusive topics is above and beyond. The admins seem to be stepping in now.
