Interesting tidbit. Right now the cd is #12 on amazon best sellers list. Even better for brian’s camp is the cd is #1 on the classical chart with the vinyl lp at #2.

Page 162 of carlin’s book talks about til i die reaction by the group. Even names mike saying the downer line and more. And how after brian changed a few words how the group realized the original lyrics were better and then used them when finishing up the song.

i had a test pressing of the single lp version of in concert. It was warped and would skip when played. that version of the lp was not very good overall. be thankful they had to redo the lp as a double lp. some of the songs were great. esp wild honey (much better than the one on mic) and jumpin’ jack flash those two rocked. mess of help was good also. releasing it as the single disc would have been a big mistake.

the 2 cd booklet and 4 lp booklet are different from the 5 cd booklet

The "Til I Die piano demo and some of the This Whole World material from the Feel Flows box set samples sound like they may have been sourced from these CDs, maybe a quiet deal was struck to obtain them from Klay and get some of it released.


I can definitely imagine he was told by lawyers not to share/post the songs though.

I can definitely say that didn’t happen. I can definitely say this set has definitely been shared since 2014. They are definitely “out there”. Also can say this set as a whole has definitely been hyped up to be better than it really is. But i also can add a handful of these songs definitely live up to the hype.

I note that that The Beach Boys' Christmas Album has popped up at #151 on Billboard this week. Is this a regular yuletide occurrence? It's apparently notched 107 weeks on the chart over the years.

It has as of last week spent five weeks on the billboard top 200 chart. It was on the Christmas chart for years back in the ‘60’s. The number 107 is it’s peak chart position. In January 2019 it landed on the chart at 107 for one week. As of last week it spent four more weeks on the top 200 chart. The pk in the listings is for peak position. So far it has been on the top 200 chart for five weeks total.

Supposedly these new titles have been reported

Okie From Muskogee

Yes, that is indeed the ‘Til I Die demo.
Nope. You only have a part of the demo if that is all you have. The demo runs 1:48 vs your 0:58 seconds. Plus brian says “let’s hear it “ as soon as he finishes playing  
It is in crystal clear no voice over no distortion releasable quality. Too bad you called us trannies. I’m no longer in the “university” here so no uploading material for me at this time.

Bryand isn't whoever uploaded that video.



Oops. My bad then. Sorry about that. Amended my post.

Hawaii clocks in at 4:05. First 3 minutes are a shaker out of one speaker and piano and strings. At 3 minute mark shaker stops and background oh and ahs are sung at end there are some words spoken and it ends with the words is that it.

Ol movie is 4:15 minutes long. Starts out with piano and strings from middle of cuddle up  at 0:38 second mark dennis adds ahs and ohs. At around 1:50 mark sounds like flutes come in. Then more dennis ohs and ahs until the end. Early cuddle up.

It’s about as likely to come as the boxed set does right now. Or for me to break the Billboard charts

Right? He's so quick to throw shade at Guitarfool (about listening to YouTube tracks? LOL) but when asked a straightforward question about a major incident that happened to the fandom he's nowhere to be found. I mean, it's not surprising, I just love seeing the hypocrisy.

Seriously, John, ESQ, and the legendary "historian" can keep degrading the petition, but meanwhile, we're not not the one's who will look back on this time thinking "I did all I could to get this set out, I bitched about entitlement for two months!", no, we'll be ones who actually tried to do something and, no matter what happens, be happy that we did what we could. I mean, we're not Mike's lapdogs, so I get it, but anyone with an ounce of self respect could understand our position.

You totally missed the point of john’s post. He was not talking about gf listening to the set on youtube as you state. He was talking about gf telling one of the main compilers of those sets that he would not buy the set and that he was glad he downloaded it illegally on the internet. Boasting in fact he was glad he did. And telling this to alan. So much so alan replied that post was appalling. Alan also wrote to gf another post about it. You have a mod telling alan he will illegally dl those sets. Putting future releases in jeopardy. And you wonder why alan hasn’t posted here since. If this kinda thing happened in any company in the usa that person would be let go. And yet gf is still a mod. That is the definition of appalling.

Plus gf hasn’t ever said much of anything about those boastful posts.

That was what john was referring to.

Thanks to my roku i found a free site (osi74). One of the channels there is sleazy. In season two i found a movie i had not seen since 1974 at the drive in. Flesh Gordon. Still funny as heck after all these years. A riot actually.

18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Surf's Up - 1971 work on track questions on: September 03, 2020, 09:58:45 AM
Jack spoke of this in the 1974 bbc special “the beach boys story”. he said they re-recorded surfs up in 1971 but didn’t use the new recording because It was not as good as the 1966 one. They did add some new parts to the 1966 tapes.
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: At what point and where did Brian's complex arrangements / orchestrations begin? on: August 23, 2020, 10:59:29 AM
When i posted my reply earlier, l was responding  to the the word “complex”. Not when he first stared orchestral arrangements. Carl was asked the question years ago and i posted his reply. It even is on film in some interview but I cannot remember which one. Key word in the question was “complex”.
20  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: At what point and where did Brian's complex arrangements / orchestrations begin? on: August 21, 2020, 01:56:14 PM
carl answered this question a long time ago. he said it was during the sessions for summer days (and summer nights).  especially the song “let him run wild”. I think this was even printed in the two part tom nolan rolling stone articles from 1971. i think.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: This week in BB History on: July 01, 2020, 11:49:36 AM
Thanks ian. Also the 1971 good vibrations central park show the group did “i get around” as the encore.

<<He mentioned that Brian worked on Smile. I have read elsewhere that there was talks of putting Do You Like Worms on the LA Light Album.>>
1. In the final issue of David Leaf's Pet Sounds newsletter, there's an interview with Bruce about the forthcoming first CBS Beach Boys album.  Bruce mentions that James Guercio wanted to begin the album with Do You Like Worms and end it with Can't Wait Too Long.
2. A couple of years later, just before the release of Ten Years of Harmony, Bruce discusses his idea of putting together a Smile collage.


In the same pet sounds magazine from 11/78 bruce first mentions the idea of a collage of smile material in addition to the above two songs guercio wanted on la light. He said he wanted brian to put the collage together. Bruce said he dropped the idea of a collage for la light because brian didn’t want it on the lp.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Rocky Pamplin to be Interviewed on WFMU June 13 on: June 13, 2020, 08:11:09 PM
so glad I listened in to learn that after brian finished recording the love you lp that he started on an lp called smile but didn’t finish it.  😳

Not suggesting anything beyond a possibility, but wasn't there talk that when the band was shopping around for a new label, after MIU ended their run with Reprise, that one of the goodies they were offering to potential labels like CBS was the possibility of revisiting or releasing some of the Smile material in some way? I don't remember where the phrase was first written, but I heard the band would put Smile on the negotiation table with labels like "dangling a carrot" in front of the labels to help close a deal especially at a time when the band itself was a shambles and they barely had any new material to offer of any hit-making quality. Was Rocky still around when such things were going on, as in around the time the band knew they would be looking for a new label?

Bruce has talked about the time of the la light lp. he said he wanted to put out a collage of smile fragments instead of full songs.  Also he didn’t want to record missing parts. He then said Brian knew nothing about this

Apparently there's 30 min. more of this interview.
Somebody on here has it; cough it up!  Grin
The interviewer's life ended poorly, to say the least.  Shocked

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/05/30/dj-dave-herman-dies-obit-sex-charges/9777263/

I've posted a few more BW rarities on YT.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5s3geAXz5SNjq5GxNpIctA

this interview was called "a conversation with brian Wilson" and aired on 5/22/77.  sent to radio stations on 4 reel-to-reel tapes. I had those tapes but lost them in the fire. but I had digitalized them before the fire so I still have a copy. presented by dir and "brought to you by scotch tapes and Toyota." your upload is missing the intro.. it was a two hour interview counting commercials. a very nice interview indeed. Dir was a part of the king biscuit flower hour series. some of the oldies here may remember king biscuit flower hour specials and the live shows they use to air.
