I think that Capitol's "THE BEACH BOYS"  lettering from the Smile cover would be better suited as their de facto logo.   It has been used elsewhere occasionally, e.g. on the Good Vibrations/H&V 78 that came out for Record Store Day a decade ago.  Its haphazard style has the mid-60s, California beach-culture vibe that is more associated with the group's heyday than the 15 Big Ones logo's sort of '50s Happy Days-retro that was popular in the '70s but actually harkens to an era that pre-dates the Beach Boys' glory days.




Dean's logo definetly is the de-facto logo.

he sounded awful and it very sad he gave his entire life to the beach boys primarily his voice, is the word that it is under control as far as the cancer is concered, is it something they fixed and say is gone for now or is it still ongoing and unknown

14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Whats the deal with the Hondells? on: August 21, 2020, 11:40:36 PM
Jan and Dean / Sidewalk surfin I get but what is up with the Hondells.  Did they have to ask Brian Wilson to cover that.  Why did they want to do that as their song so bad?

19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / why does brian thank the hayward and lodge in the notes to "Brian Wilson (1988)" on: August 20, 2020, 12:21:43 PM

20  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Not sold on MIU yet.... on: August 16, 2020, 04:55:33 PM
To put in context- LIGHT ALBUM is probably my #1 most enjoyed Beach Boys album last few years......i LOVE the production of MIU but god help me I cant get into the album past Al's Peggy Sue.  I **WANT*** to like match point of our love, id love to have that be a classic beach boys 'yacht rock' cut--- but man i just dont know if im into it yet....

22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / 'Looking back with Love': it's not that bad on: May 30, 2020, 01:43:28 PM
I just finished side 1 and production/sound wise- I had zero problems, and enjoyed it all the way through.  Haven't gone over lyrics w/ a fine tooth comb or anything---- I like the sound of this lp the same way i like the sound of LOVE YOU- the production brian really invented (thanks again for another brian invention!) - you know what im talking about: on love you it is modern style production sounds and sounds fused with classic rock and roll style melodies/song structures.   now it was the 80s and they didn't have any choice, but it really was brian on LOVE YOU that was doing that back to at least 76 and the 15 big ones production- thats where it REALLY started.  but love you is what i talk about a lot, I have the poster on the wall. 

Side 2 didnt start so good, i hate calendar girl.  Mikes is at least better than the orig, but it still falls short as a song. 

Be my baby is good, this is what im talking about re 15 Big ones.   If you like 15 big ones production  you probably want Mike doing Be My Baby

Now theres an 80s style ballad.  It is good.

I'll tell you another thing: If 'Boardwalk' records (?) released this on early cd, I would of been all in


I absolutely think it's got crapped on more than it deserves.  Calendar Girl is a fail but that is more Neil Sedakas fault.  The production while becoming standard by '81, really owes a lot to brian wilson and what he started during the 15 big ones era.
