26  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Is there an appreciation thread for The Beach Boys In Concert [1973] on: June 07, 2021, 03:46:18 PM
I believe it was this (I stand to be corrected)

Side A:
1. Wouldn't it Be Nice
2. Leaving This Town
3. Heroes and Villains
4. Marcella
5. You Need a Mess of Help to Stand Alone

Side B:
1. Let the Wind Blow
2. Do it Again
3. Wild Honey
4. Fun, Fun, Fun
5. Jumpin' Jack Flash

Its possible that Marcella, Let The Wind Blow, Wouldn't It Be Nice and Don't Worry Baby could be the same recordings as the 73 In Concert release as it used 72 recordings of those tracks.

It will be interesting to see how the In Concert album is treated over the next 2 years. The album used a mix of tracks recorded in 72 & 73. I'd like to think we see a 72 copyright extension using the rejected single album disk plus other tracks recorded at the 72 shows then something more substantial in 2023 with the full In Concert covered - or maybe next year we get a couple of full shows, then a respectful In Concert release in 2023 - it will be interesting.

To take our own obsessions and to project them on to Brian ... what would be the ultimate present? It's now available (if it hadn't been available earlier) ... The Be My Baby Sessions bootleg

You can add Five Summer Stories a MacGillivary Freeman production from 1972. A surfing movie (arguably one of the greatest of all time) which had major cinema release in the USA and Australia and played through to 1975. Use of the Beach Boys tracks were given free of charge by the band and it went a long way to giving the band credibility in the 70s:

Feel Flows
Surfin Safari
Surfin
California Girls
Do It Again
Good Vibrations
Surfs Up
California
Sail On Sailor
The Trader
Long Promised Road

Wasn't he bass on the 1967 Thanksgiving tour ... as documented on the A Vocal Element boot?

This set is rubbish - its just an ad hoc collection of booted material - the Big Sur set includes the dodgied up mix of soundboard and audience recordings. I have copies of this show in much better quality than these recordings. No way that this a Brother authorised set.

Also, you can have some success by plugging the videos' URLs into one of those online YouTube-to-audio converters. (The one I used failed, but upon repeated attempts I got it to work.)

Or, you can use a VPN.

Tried bot VPN set for LA and MP3 convert and neither worked. Based in Australia.

... UPDATE ... derrrrrrr ... reset VPN to Belgium ... listening now
33  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: January 11, 2021, 12:13:19 PM
BTW, one workaround to be able to play the tracks: use one of those online YouTube-to-MP3/MP4 converters.

Tried ... didn't work for me.

Given how no form of release has happened for any live recordings made in 1970, am I right in understanding that as of 00:01 tonight, these recordings become public domain within the EU? Or does the fact the the original recordings have the Copyright extension, mean the live versions do as well?

Wouldn't It Be Nice from Big Sur 70 has been available in legal form for many years.

For those of you longing for more live shows to be in the FF set we're pretty much 100% to get the Monterey Big Sur music festival show from 1970 but what are the other possibilities? 1971 there was the Good Vibrations from Central Park show from which the footage and isolated vocal of Dennis sing Forever which was used during the C50 tour plus the set includes Okie which was one of the copyright tracks flagged on You Tube so we might get that set. Also there is the Beach Boys set with the Grateful Dead. What else is out there suitable for release?
37  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: November 22, 2020, 02:23:42 PM
The live Riot In Cell Block #9 sounds like the '70 Big Sur Folk Festival version (Mike's intro is the same) but in far superior sound quality than circulating recordings ... fingers crossed for the full show without audio drop outs.

I waited 40 plus years for Smile so I can wait a few extra months for the box set without getting my knickers in an emotional knot.
42  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Fiver Summer Stories & Holland Conundrum on: May 26, 2020, 06:48:23 PM
Music was Beach Boys, Honk and a few others. The officially released soundtrack was Honk only. I've owned the video/DVD for 20 plus years and the beach boys are definitely in it.

The movie also included (from memory) Surf's Up, Feel Flows, Cool Water, Surfin Safari ...

I don't think that it has been resolved. It is very strange. I am wondering if we have a bit of the Mandela Effect going on here...

Interesting thought on the Mandella Effect. There does exist at least one review and personal perspective from the opening night written by Eve Babitz - in it she talks to Greg MacGillavary about the Beach Boys involvement but no mention is made of the Holland tracks in question: https://www.surfer.com/blogs/eos/eve-does-five-summer-stories/
44  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / The Fiver Summer Stories & Holland Conundrum on: May 25, 2020, 04:35:13 PM
The surf movie Five Summer Stories, close to 50 years since its release, still stands as arguably the best “surf movie” of its genre (I’d argue Morning of The Earth is better). The movie featured several Beach Boys tracks including Sail On Sailor, The Trader and California from the Holland album. One of the two producers of the movie, Greg MacGillivray, has stated that Brian Wilson gave open access to the Beach Boys catalogue to use in the production. The conundrum is that Holland was released in January 1973 but Five Summer Stories was first released in April 1972 when the band were still working on Carl and The Passions. On this or previous message boards I recall discussions about this from some notable BB historians who recall seeing the movie upon release and noted unreleased songs on the soundtrack and didn’t realise what they were until Holland was released. And so to the “conundrum”: has this disparity in release dates or the timing of the Holland tracks inclusion into the movie soundtrack ever been resolved by the historians?

... and how the hell did Narrabeen make that list?
46  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Kokomo: Robbie Robertson Went There First? on: April 02, 2020, 01:56:14 PM
Tim Buckley went there too in 1973 on his song Stone In Love
47  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: March 19, 2020, 02:05:00 PM
I'm also starting to wonder if there could be another major box set for the 60th anniversary.

1980/83= The Capitol Years 6 LPs / 4 CDs (20th anniversary)
1993 = Good Vibrations: Thirty Years of the Beach Boys (30th anniversary)
Nothing in particular around the 40th anniversary, then
2011 = Smile Sessions + 2013 = Made In California (50th anniversary)
2020 = Feel Flows

Is there potential for another "career spanning" box set sometime between 2021-2023?






Yep - the much needed live retrospective.
48  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Has Ricky Fataar had any solo releases on: January 27, 2020, 11:54:39 AM
Ricky lived in Australia for a number of years mainly doing session work and his name still pops up as the fortunes of artists he worked with get recycled.

1964 - As an 8 year old I just gotten a crystal set (remember those?) and in bed one night listening with the old ear plug when this song came on with soaring falsetto and that was it? Song was Wendy. HOOKED FOR LIFE!
