Perhaps interesting to note that in barbershop harmony, the roles are called Bass, Baritone, Lead, and Tenor -- and that's true regardless of the genders of the participants.

The "high voice wail" part that is sung by Brian and is featured on a lot of BV on Beach Boys records in the 60's is falsetto, but on lead vocals in the early years of the Beach Boys Brian was (in most cases) mainly attempting to replicate Bob Flanagan's part in the Four Freshmen, which was a jazzy barbershop tenor or even high tenor, not falsetto.

See, that's where I disagree.  I think Brian was a sort of leggiero tenor type voice that mixed a lot of head voice into the timbre pretty low in his range and never needed to open his vocal folds to produce falsetto.

In his 'classic' 60s period, Brian would switch between normal (chest) voice and falsetto (head) voice all the time, whether doing backing or lead vocals.  But at this time his 'normal' vocal range was so high that it could overlap with his falsetto range.  By which I mean, some notes he could choose to since either chest voice or falsetto, depending on the dynamic of the song,  A good example is  Don't Worry Baby.  By way of demonstration here's the opening sections, where I've highlighted in yellow where (I believe) he switches to falsetto.  But for sure there's very little difference in the timbre of his head and chest voice, which is unusual.

Well it's been building up inside of me
For oh I don't know how long
I don't know why
But I keep thinking
Something's bound to go wrong
But she looks in my eyes
And makes me realize
when she says

Don't worry, baby
Everything will turn out alright

If ever there was a Simpsons episode where Marge leaves Homer and he forlornly pours his heart out in a song, then that song should surely by Still I Dream Of it!   LOL

Some really good music on Beach Boys 85 including the very underrated Where I Belong what I consider to be their best work in the 80s by far. It's a shame there's not more footage of those sessions available to the public

Agree.  Where I Belong gets it just right, whereas much of that album always seemed a little 'forced' to me.

In my car is an absolute tune as well. Would have liked to have that available

Agreed...I have a serious obsession with In My Car.

Me too - great song!  Marred only by ludicrous 80s drum sound.

It's a Brexit satire, so possibly of limited interest to non-Brits!

It seems like the coda to Surf's Up is about a minute long.  I was wondering if anyone has come across any (live) versions where they carried it out longer?  It always ends too soon for me.

Thanks for your kind comments Billy.  People have cited Sly and the Family Stone and also Crowded House, if that helps?   Smiley

The whole of the Beach Boys Love You album processed as music from a 1980s video game. At last! (Actually it's strangely compelling...)

Here's a TV interview with Carl who was cutting his second solo album at that time. He also talks about Brian just having entered his second Landy term, working with Skunk Baxter and other stuff.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcOHwarMNKk

Enjoyed that.  Carl sometimes comes across a little too 'guarded' in interviews IMO, but here he seems happy and relaxed.
