Also it has gone pretty viral on twitter... in a negative way

Yeah, Mike was a trending topic for a period of time last night as the photo was making the rounds. Originally from https://twitter.com/aldotcom/status/1404528358118023175, I believe.

Looks like LBWL has been pulled from download/streaming services. Wonder if 43 North Broadway got in trouble? Embarrassed

I tried to do some brief scouring but this was the closest thing I could find:

https://www.facebook.com/CavalryMusic/


Great find! Their most recent post is this ad for Apple TV+ which features the remix: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1fI8BL7BnE

So mystery solved! A commission for an ad. Still weird Capitol put it out as a single…

Wouldn't It Be Nice (Cavalry Remix):

Originally thought this was an unauthorized fan remix, but the YouTube description indicates this was put out by Capitol Records. What is this mess? Huh

Corrections welcome. Track lengths are sourced from the Beach Boys web store.

For any of the creatively-minded members of Smiley Smile: Al is launching a music video contest for “Waves of Love 2.0.”

According to the BMI database, he is also known as Billy Harve House. From some googling, there appears to be a 69-year-old of the same name in California.

Might be worth bringing up that 43 North Broadway’s legal standing regarding whether they actually the rights to the material they put out occasionally gets called into question… here’s a Washington Post article detailing lawsuits they’re facing over the rights to the Black Jazz record label. I also noticed recently that 43 North Broadway put out a version of the Buckinghams’ Kind Of A Drag album on streaming services even though Columbia Records also has a version on streaming services (after Columbia acquired the rights to Kind Of A Drag from the independent label USA Records back in the ’60s). Hence my skepticism about any involvement with the Mike Love camp on this LBWL reissue…
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Looking Back With Love - Official Release on: March 05, 2021, 12:14:57 PM
The company behind this release—43 North Broadway—is one of the intellectual property vultures that has gained notoriety in the last few years from buying up defunct independent labels and then putting out these slipshod digital releases. They must have acquired Boardwalk’s assets at some point. Probably can safely assume that Mike/the BBs’ camp/Iconic had nothing to do with the release. Haven’t fully taken the time to examine this new digital version of LBWL but I think I’ve already noticed the left and right channels have been swapped from the original release.

Lets look into this guy Daniel Charles Parker

Here is his discogs page - https://www.discogs.com/artist/6746654-Daniel-Charles-Parker

Any connection with that name as to why it might be a pseudonym?

I found this - http://members.calbar.ca.gov/fal/Licensee/Detail/118281

I guess that could be him. Started practicing in 1985 in LA. I sent him an email  Grin



Sorry to revive an old thread, but went down a rabbit hole of googling and found out that Dan Parker is one of Mike’s former managers. Here’s his resume—among his achievements, he proudly states “Wrote title song and coordinated marketing and PR for Mr. Love’s solo album on Casablanca Records.” So, it sounds like Mr. Parker’s lyrical contribution to “LBWL” is legitimate.

Bonus: Here’s a random news article that features a video interview with Mr. Parker. Mentions how he and Mike met…

That was great detective work! Yes indeed.

You read hints of it here weeks ago too:  Wink

Good to know that Live in 1970 set can be considered an “official release” Grin
14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys bought on: February 18, 2021, 07:39:45 AM
I had previously mentioned here how Iconic had acquired some of the Beach Boys’ publishing rights (http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,27459.msg668103.html#msg668103). Great to finally get some clarification on what was going down.

Mr. Beard secured the trademark for “California Music” back in October.

Now streaming!

Waves of Love 2.0: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktfK-lb0cgs
Jenny Clover: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwK_GXG03-M

“Waves of Love 2.0” appears to be an entirely new mix. It’s not the same version that was on Dvoskin’s Soundcloud page back in the day.
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: “A Postcard from California” Reissues on: February 08, 2021, 09:30:46 AM
Pre-order for the “Waves of Love 2.0” CD single is up and is located here: https://do-what-you-love-inc.myshopify.com/products/al-jardine-waves-of-love-autographed-cd-single

Here’s a 3D rendering Al shared on social media of what the CD is going to look like: https://www.discmakers.com/MyAccount/FlashViewer/?p=Y4PVH4ZjI8R0r9nwq8dUTcW0EtqhS%2FVDX0gBXNfC%2F2k%3D&fbclid=IwAR0kMdSlvu0F9iwIT3HL7dV-RpIrbSjqm_2kWEYZNA2mpyHLwk0-OCG376E#.YCF0ay9h125
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: “A Postcard from California” Reissues on: February 05, 2021, 06:35:32 AM
Sounds like "Jenny Clover" will only be on this physical CD single?  

The single is available for pre-order on download/streaming services (see https://www.amazon.com/Al-Jardine-Waves-Love-2-0/dp/B08VJ5KKSG/) and it looks like “Jenny Clover” will be included there too. Interestingly, this single appears to fall outside of Al’s deal with UMe—Amazon says that the label putting out the single is “Do What You Love Media” (Larry Dvoskin’s company).
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: “A Postcard from California” Reissues on: February 03, 2021, 12:23:43 PM
There’s somewhat of an announcement up on aljardine.com/news. Doesn’t mention what the street date will be, but it does confirm that the new version of Postcard will essentially be a straight reissue of the original album with nothing much by way of extras except for “a new west coast remastered mix” of “Waves of Love.” (A “brand new east coast mix” will follow later in the year. Cheesy)

20  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: “A Postcard from California” 2021 Reissues on: January 27, 2021, 12:42:08 PM
As recently as yesterday, one could buy the old version of Postcard on Al’s eBay store but that listing has now been canceled.



And aljardine.com/music, which used to link to the eBay listing, now says “Info coming soon on where to purchase” Postcards. Hoping this means the new reissue will be announced soon Grin

BTW, looking on Tidal, details say ”copyright 2020 Iconic Artists Group, LLC”. I’m beginning to doubt that this is an official release... No sign of UMG/Capitol anywhere.

The plot thickens.

Granted, anyone can paste a copyright or ownership tag on anything posted online, the more dubious the more likely it can be done, HOWEVER:

Take a look at this discussion which fell off the radar here a few months ago:

http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,27459.0.html

"Iconic Artists Group" is under the same umbrella of LLC's and business entities as "Iconic Brothers LLC", which is - as you can read at that link - The LLC listed June 26, 2020 that acquired the BB's song titles from Mike's interests. Again, read the link. "Iconic Artists", "Iconic Brothers"...those company names are attached to multiple interests sharing the same corporate address as Irving Azoff's various interests, as Azoff is a co-founder and owner of "Iconic Artists". For those unaware of who Irving Azoff is, google the name.

So if this dump of live material is listed to "Iconic Artists Group LLC", it connects directly to the group of interests and LLC's under the "Iconic" umbrella of holdings and Irving Azoff's interests, and that signing over of Mike's interests in the songs listed in the public documents at the link above into "Iconic Brothers".

That's all I'll post about it, but for those interested in going down the rabbit hole and some truly inside baseball, the links to start with are there.

That is, unless someone just felt like tagging "Iconic Artists Group LLC" onto a collection of bootlegged live tracks ripped from other sources...but I doubt that's the case.

Happy digging.  Smiley

Wow, great connection you made. Certainly makes one wonder what’s going on with this release. It’s perhaps of note that this appears to be Iconic Artist Group’s first and only release to-date, so it’s not like they’re out there claiming copyrights en masse for a bunch of different artists. Feel like that weakens the case that they’re just doing general run-of-the-mill grey-market bootlegging for a quick buck. If that were the case you’d think they’d just be pumping out the releases non-stop.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Pro Shot Beach Boys Concerts on: January 03, 2021, 09:45:27 AM
Thanks!
The TNN Music City Awards show was just that one song I believe. That's why it's not listed.

Whoops, I should have looked at the criteria at the top of your post! My bad. That’s the only song they performed as far as I’m aware.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Pro Shot Beach Boys Concerts on: January 02, 2021, 11:09:37 PM
Here’s a 6/10/96 performance at the TNN Music City News Country Awards I don’t see listed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVXR3zPq4S0
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: December 18, 2020, 07:34:39 AM
That looks to be one of the grey-market radio broadcast releases that has nothing to do with Capitol or BRI.
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Billy Gibbons & Mike Love – 409 on: December 14, 2020, 06:47:22 AM
I just saw there was an album released digitally on November 20, 2020 called America Salutes You Presents: Guitar Legends 4 which features Billy Gibbons & Mike Love dueting on “409.” It samples the original Beach Boys recording at the beginning and then cuts into the new recording. From some cursory googling, it looks like America Salutes You Presents: Guitar Legends 4 is some sort of fundraising special, so perhaps there is a video component to this out there if anyone is able to track it down.

Link to the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hB19tjQ2ivk
