I know Mike bashing is de rigueur here and all places Beach Boys, but I saw the Mike and Bruce show a few years ago and it was fantastic.  Lots of deep cuts and superbly performed.  We can dicker on the appropriateness of him licensing the Beach Boys' names but he did so legally and all full members or their families benefit.  As far as I know the touring Glen Miller Orchestra has zero original members.

Yeah Mike comes across like a douche but the scramble for the moral high ground as it relates to his endeavors appears reactionary and often insipid to me.

Not quite in ALL places Beach Boys...it seems that this thread is SS's "response" to a sequence of recent comments bashing "Brianistas" over at the nearest faraway place, with "according to someone who (should know better)" leading the way.

I think if Mike is going to have ads like this, he would do everyone right by identifying the members of his touring band. As Big Daddy notes, they are by no means a disgrace to the musical legacy of the Beach Boys and he would be honoring their efforts by putting their names out there. This ad might be seen as less offensive if it were to take such an approach.

Er, guess I should put that word "might" in quotes, yes?  Cool Guy

“ Fairy Tale Music/A Casual Look" (demo version), "I'm the Pied Piper" (extended version), "Pa, Let Her Go Out" (early version of "Better Get Back In Bed"): unbooted. Love the music in the fairy tale, would be very interested to hear any of this”

Haven’t heard the last part of it, but having heard that version of A Casual Look in the Fairy Tale I can safely say it  is freaking phenomenal and needs to come out. Granted it’s been many years since I hear it , but it just *worked*

Bruce hid a master tape to prevent its inclusion on an album he didn’t even stick around for?!

When I was in high school, I once checked out a book from the school library with a generic titled called “Rock Stars”. I remember it said Brian drowned in 19972 after years of depression due to SMiLE not selling well. 🤔

Awesome...thanks dude! I’ll let my wife know about The Easy Way Out...that was 100% all her!

Some of the songs are meant to fade into each other (Boundless Bliss->Ominous Regret, and especially the suite compiling A Bloody Procession, Benediction, and Heavenly Procession) 😎

I’m excited, but a combination of health issues (was in hospital for a week and just got out today) , focusing on my band, and doing a deep dive into Nirvana’s catalog, I’ve been a bit preoccupied. That said in a couple of mj the minds are going to be blown.

Excellent

I put more stock in any information from Howie than anybody else. That said, I have a very strong hunch this information is indeed correct

Our latest is out...and for the first time it’s not all instrumental! Dean Entwistle and I share vocals on a cover of Wake the World (yes...the Beach Boys song), and there are 3 a capellla harmony songs on there. In addition, there’s a bossa nova song , ambient , and even an organ/guitar based track. It’s unlike anything else we’ve ever done!

You are correct, it was Sept. ‘75 when the track and vocals were being recorded.

I forgot to post the link of the song I was talking about lol

I hear Brian on the backups...1975, right? High part sounds much clearer than it would later in the year (September IIRC) when he did his vocal on Back Home. What month was this?

Lol i forgot the link

It's coming.
It's major.

The machine is at full speed.
I hope so. Too much talk and not enough action!

I think you mean “action that you can see”; Howie and crew have worked their asses off to make this happen.

Here’s an exclusive preview for our upcoming album Blood In Blood Out, now to be released in May (details forthcoming). Dean Entwistle played all instruments, and him and I shared vocal duties throughout, on this heartfelt cover of The Beach Boys’ 1968 classic “Wake the World”

Isn't the simple answer to all of this that if you want the original, then buy the original. Scour eBay and hundreds of other sources until you get what you want. If you want pristine sound, albeit not quite what Carl (& Stephen did in mixing), buy a new release.

I'm not sure why people feel so "entitled", often to an impossible dream.




Agreed. Again, it’s not like a George Lucas situation.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: April 01, 2021, 03:31:01 AM
Wouldn’t that make the versions on the boxed set truer to the original vision of the album compared to what Desper proposed? Note: I think both should be available, just making a point

Gotta say, it’s great to read a FF thread that doesn’t have most of the board and moderators ganging up on a single member and telling them their posts are awful
isn't that the guy you called a waste of flesh


Rainboweyez is the guy who made that crack about me dying of Covid? Didn’t know that; in that case, f*** him. Didn’t realize it was the same guy

Edit

Yup sure is.
