One of the most underrated and overlooked drummers of all time.

I don't know if this has happened on any of the other streaming services, but all of the subtitles (Live/year, backing track, etc.) have disappeared from the album's YouTube Music page.
Some are subtitled and some aren't.

Has anyone noticed that the sound quality of "I've Got A Friend" isn't as good as the rest of the Dennis titles? There is a lot of hiss, and what seem to be crackles, for lack of a better term.

That reminds me of some awards show back in the Ď80s ó the Beach Boys were appearing during the show. During LL Cool Jís performace, the camera cut to various audience reaction shots, including one of Carl Wilson grooving to LLís number.


I was trying to find that on youtube, but couldn't do so. But I saw this shout-out to Dennis from 1984 (ca. 1:30:00)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stC-XRBp_rM
And no response of any kind from the audience.

Are we allowed to know any details of it?

Is the Dennis material from the new set all that exists, or all that was recorded, of his solo project?

Regarding the Murry/Brian dynamic on the "Won't You Tell Me" demo, am I the only one who kind of think that they are both being deliberately condescending to each other? Murry saying that it was the best thing Brian had sung in five years, and Brian's overly dramatic laugh.

I'm not sure my heart can take another set of this magnitude. But I'd happily take that chance. lol
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: August 27, 2021, 02:05:43 AM
Does anybody else think that the demo of "Won't You Tell Me" sounds a lot like "Wind Chimes"?
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: August 27, 2021, 01:37:51 AM
I have a feeling that the live version of Back Home is an edit of more than one performance. I don't know of any time where Brian and Al did a duet like that.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: August 27, 2021, 01:14:35 AM
God bless Howie, Mark, Alan, Stephen, and everybody else involved. Gods among men. I'm almost in tears over some of this...

That "Feel Flows" track with backing vox is just astounding!

BTW, what happened to the Big Sur single on YouTube? I went to see it earlier tonight and it had been pulled.
It's still there for me.

Quote from: Greg Parry link=topic=27869.msg674204#msg674204 date=162921885[quote


Perhaps Stephen Desper can chime in with information about the original mastering matrix, because there is some controversy regarding the  digital remastering of these post Capitol albums going back to the original set of Joe Gastwirt remastered CD's in 1990. I've always found there to be a world of difference between the 1990 CD and the original LP pressing that goes way beyond analogue 'warmth'. It wasn't until I heard about the mastering matrix that this made sense. So perhaps it is the lack of the correct mastering matrix which is impairing your listening experience? Try the original LP if that is the case.

COMMENT to Greg Parry,  The matrix is analog not digital.  If you wish to hear the correct and Carl Wilson approved release of SF and SU, the only source for this today are my Study-Videos. I am sorry that you must deal with passwords and other security things, but this is all required of Copyright Law in the United States. My book comments on these copyrighted recordings as they play and provides resolved versions, mastered by Carl and myself in the best fidelity I can provide. Most fan feedback is positive and comments reflect what I heard when I re-mastered all my recordings for use in the Study-Video series of explanations and experiences during my time as BB engineer.

The above release (via Artisan) and approval of the first pressing issues marked the end of my connection and/or control over any further modifications made to these productions by other mastering houses or individual engineers. Without matrix resolution, the whole (re) issue is kind of like DOA. All these productions were intended to be released in, what today would be called "virtual surround." It's all encoded within the original master, but no one seems to care enough to release the resolved version.

It's very frustrating as an artisan and engineer to create a work of art, but not be able to get it released as it should be. Like painting in color, but only being able to make copies in black and white. So at least you can find a source for these productions in their intended format, even if the record companies are stuck in stereo.
 
At one time the good folks here at Smilesmile hosted the series for several years. It is currently available at one of the other popular message boards. Registration is required there as it was here; part of the copyright law.

Would you ever make your study videos available here again sometime?

I will always say that "It's About Time" should have been a MONSTER hit. If it wasn't, it should have been all over the radio at the time.

With Amazon UK cancelling orders willy-nilly, does anyone know of a safe bet to buy the 5 CD box set from over here? Thanks
I'll most likely get mine on ebay.

Whatever you guys are talking about, could you share with the rest of us, please?? Did we all miss something incredible?
It was an upload of an alternate version of The Trader, the ending jam from Wouldn't It Be Nice To Live Again, and an alternate version of In My Room.

Where on earth did that come from???   Shocked
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: July 19, 2021, 09:57:28 PM
Looks like the alternate lyric version of Till I Die has leaked on youtube.

That first close up shot of them is actually pretty damn good. If I hadn't known any better I would have thought it was a color photo. That being said, I still hate the idea of colorizing  black and white film.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: July 11, 2021, 03:18:36 PM
I keep seeing a two cd Japanese import of Feel Flows that allegedly has exclusive bonus tracks listed on Ebay. Any idea what the "exclusive" tracks are?
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Funky Pretty: the So Tough / Holland era sessions on: June 19, 2021, 07:48:10 PM
As excited as I am for the FF set, THIS is the period I'm more interested in, in a way. Can you imagine if "Fading Love Song" existed with a Brian lead? Or the full band version of "In The Country" with Al singing? Or the original "Beatrice From Baltimore". Then there's the "Sail On Sailor" demo.

Unfortunately, you'll have to keep imagining to manifest any of those into the world. Apart from the Sail On Sailor demo, maybe... if the alleged collector holding it ever surfaces.
Do you think there's a chance that one of the group members recorded a lead on the "In The Country" backing track?

The episode I'd give anything to see is the Jimi Hendrix appearance. I was once in touch with somebody who claimed to have a copy, but it was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina.
