Just curious...

Why are Marcella and You Need A Mess Of Help To Stand Alone included?  Weren't they recorded in 1972?

Thank you!!!  This answers several questions that I had.
3  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Help Me Rhonda In Concert question on: August 21, 2021, 07:44:52 AM
Greeting!

I have a question regarding the live version of "Help Me Rhonda" from the In Concert album.

Does anyone know who played the guitar solo?  It doesn't sound like Carl.  I was thinking Blondie or Ed, but Ed may have been playing bass.

Video from the Crystal Park concert in June 1972 shows Blondie on guitar and Ed on bass.  The version from the "In Concert" was recorded in September 1973 I believe.  There is a solo in the version at Crystal Park.  By process of elimination, it appears to be Blondie.  Carl, Al, Blondie and Billy are playing guitar.  During the solo, it shows Carl, Al and Billy.  They all appear to be playing rhythm guitar.

I'm just wondering if it was Blondie on the "In Concert" album, too.

Thanks!

Looking forward to any live material.

I really hope the 72-73 era will be covered as well some day. They were such a great live act back then.

Mark Linett has said that a box for In Concert is a possibiltiy


I hope it includes River Song, Here She Comes, and You Need A Mess Of Help To Stand Alone.

I've seen a few photos of Ricky playing rhythm guitar and steel guitar onstage with The Beach Boys. One of the former was in a late '70s issue of Hit Parader.

Thanks for the heads up!  So it was an issue well after he left the band?

I know it's still a few years away, but I would love to get a "In Concert" box set with a bunch of unreleased live tracks from 72-73 including "River Song", "Here She Comes", "Surf's Up", and "You Need A Mess Of Help To Stand Alone".
7  Smiley Smile Stuff / The Beach Boys Media / Re: Beach Boys songbooks? on: November 25, 2019, 07:20:55 AM
I never do see many Beach Boys songbooks, just the same old greatest hits. Have to settle for tabs online.

Right.  It's usually the same 10-15 songs.   I'd love to find tabs for the more obscure cuts like "Here She Comes", "We Got Love", "Hold On Dear Brother"...and even Dennis' "River Song".
8  Smiley Smile Stuff / The Beach Boys Media / Re: Beach Boys songbooks? on: November 22, 2019, 11:04:38 AM
Or one monster one that covers everything. There are some truly mental chords in some of the songs and even the more popular ones haven't been tabbed out that well.

Not helped by the fact that if you watch live videos of them playing then Carl and Al quite often didn't play what seemed to be on the record anyway

What would really be cool is to have the entire "In Concert" album tabbed out!
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / The Beach Boys Media / Beach Boys songbooks? on: November 20, 2019, 05:35:24 PM
I know this may be a long shot, but have there ever been songbooks released for the So Tough and Holland albums?  I've found them for Sunflower, Surf's Up, and 15 Big Ones, but not the two that I really want.  Just wondering if they have ever been available.

There were a set of photos taken by a fellow named Ed Primm that were taken at a concert in Raleigh, NC on 6/13/97.  There are several good shots of Carl, but I've never seen these photos surface online and I don't know how to get in touch with the photographer.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / The Beach Boys Media / Re: Any footage/photos of Carl's final gigs? on: November 15, 2019, 10:41:06 AM

I didn't think he looked bad at all in that picture.  He looked far better than he did in the picture above, which was taken 10 days before his last concert.  I really wish we had a date on the Schilling photo.  The caption in ESQ only said 1997.  So I don't know if it was before or after the above picture.

I don't recall the potential date, but my impression based on far off memory is that someone framed it as likely the last extant photo of Carl, which I took to mean would be post-August 1997 (where the last concert photos come from). I also recall Jerry Schilling relating some stories of regularly visiting/being with Carl during his final days/weeks/months, so I assumed the picture came from after Carl got off the road (for what was hoped at the time to be a temporary hiatus).

Details of Carl's life in general, and certainly this time frame, are pretty sketchy. I absolutely respect his and his family's clear desire to not delve into a lot of details of his private life. But there are also fans and scholars that aren't looking for salacious or scandalous details in trying to know more about this (or any) time frame.

Little bits are revealed in the Billy Hinsche documentary on Carl, which is, not surprisingly, not particularly revelatory about Carl despite having several hours of reminiscences of various family members and colleagues. But a few tidbits are discussed there.

I actually purchased the Carl DVD from Billy a few days ago.  Haven't received it yet, but looking forward to it.  Have you seen the Dennis DVD?  I'm thinking about getting it too.

Or maybe sitar?

That would be cool, too!

I have seen a photo of him playing flute, but that was from his days with The Flames.  All of the concert photos I've during his time with the Beach Boys, they've all been him drumming.
I saw him play steel guitar. And, I believe, flute, on the Sloop John B intro.
Very talented guy. What's he doing these days?

He's been the drummer in Bonnie Raitt's band since the 90's.

And many folks, even close to the end, can sometimes look surprisingly pretty good. I've heard the stories of Carl at Audree's funeral (which would have been December 1997 I believe) looking stunningly in pretty good shape and many people were stunned at his quick demise because he had looked so good less than two months earlier.

This makes me think of my aunt who battled cancer.  Christmas 2015 she looked well.  You wouldn't know she was sick by looking at her.  Just over 3 months later, she was gone.

Circling back to that late 1997 photo of Carl wearing the baseball cap with Jerry Schilling, as I mentioned in an older post, someone sent it to me years ago but I can't find it anymore. What I remember is that on whatever forum was the active forum all those years ago, a few folks mentioned how shocking it was and how bad Carl looked, etc. When I finally saw the photo, I thought he looked okay. He's smiling (which is more than I can say for most of the extant 1997 pics).

Hope someone can dig that photo up and post it.

I notice that Carl is standing so it's likely he is singing "God Only Knows".  The first time I ever saw this picture, I didn't believe it was Carl.  I believe his change in appearance was due to the steroids he was taking at the time.  I know Carl found out he was sick in late 1996 or early 1997.  Does anyone know when it was announced publicly?

This is the 1997 book photo mentioned a few times in the thread



From 'The Beach Boys in Concert'

There was one pic of Carl post-touring, either late 1997 or early 1998, published one time in ESQ. Someone sent it to me years ago but I can't find it anymore. It's not online anywhere, and a big hubbub was made years ago when someone offered to scan it, based on how they only got permission to publish the pic for that one-time use in that issue.



Are you referring to the photo of Carl and Jerry Schilling with Carl wearing a Cubs hat?
i had seen that photo, but did not know it was from that late in Carl's life.

It was in ESQ and dated 1997.

Anyone know what the deal is with the August 1972 concert in Boston?  If it was pro shot, why hasn't it been released?  I don't know if I have ever seen footage from it.  Looking at the set list, I would love to see that show in its entirety.

I seriously doubt it was pro-shot in its entirety - more likely, a little bit of footage was shot for the local TV news.

That's extremely unfortunate.  I would love to see a pro shot concert from this time period that is complete.

In my book with Jon-the beach boys in concert there is a very late photo of Carl in the brief chapter on 1997

I think that photo was from August 19, 1997 at the Rosemont Horizon.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / The Beach Boys Media / Ricky Fataar on: November 08, 2019, 10:47:40 AM
Hello.

I know Ricky was credited with playing rhythm guitar as well as steel guitar in concert in 1973-74.  Are there any concert photos out there that show Ricky playing those songs? 

I am referring any photos other than this one:



Thanks.

A tad off topic, but Carl on Tom's 'Hung Up And Overdue' is a favourite musical moment of mine. 'She's The One, is an underrated album, IMO.

Carl also sang on the track "Honey Bee" from Tom's album "Wildflowers".
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Meeting Brian & Al vs Mike & Bruce on: May 11, 2017, 07:47:44 PM
I haven't met Brian or Al.  I did contact Al was and asked if he would sign an item for me if I sent it to him.  He was very nice during my brief interaction with him and he did sign my item.

I met Mike and Bruce two years ago.  The venue was right across from the local mall.  I saw their tour bus when I came out of the mall (I was waiting around for the concert).  I decided to walk over just to see if I could meet anyone.  This was several hours before the concert.  Jeff came over and talked with me for a bit and took a picture.  He was really cool.  Bruce came out of the venue and was walking over to the mall.  He stopped and talked with me for several minutes and took a pic as well.  When he came back, he stopped and talked some more.  Mike didn't get off the bus until right before the show started.  By that point, I was joined by several other fans.  Mike promised that he would come out after the show and meet with all of us.  He kept that promise.  He spent a considerable amount of time signing autographs, taking pictures, and talking with fans.  He was very nice.  I talked with Scott as well, who was also pretty cool. 

No one has really mentioned Blondie in this thread.  I'd love to meet him.  He seems like a really cool guy.

25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Blondie + Ricky's roles in the world of vocals on: November 08, 2015, 06:06:55 PM
Here is something that I found interesting.  I know Ricky sang a few lead lines on the studio version of Funky Pretty.  While reading The Beach Boys FAQ book and the section regarding who sang lead on what, there is a list of leads for the "In Concert" LP.  It lists Ricky as singing lead on that version of Funky Pretty.  We know he played drums on the live version, but I'm pretty certain that it sounds like Blondie singing the lines Ricky sang on the LP version.  Can anyone verify that?

I didn't know Ricky sang any lines on the LP version - I always thought it was just Carl, Al, Blondie, and Mike rotating the lead on that one, on record and in concert.

Ricky sang the following lines on the Holland version of "Funky Pretty":

"Glow glow glow come on glow"

and

"Why she's a princess imparted to me"
