Reading earlier interviews with Joe Thomas, I got the impression that a lot of those "80 hours" is just piano doodling with a tape rolling. Thomas would then "audition" certain moments to present to Brian who would then choose which ones to try and develop into songs. The "Life Suite" may be mostly written, but it certainly isn't all recorded.

STRANGE WORLD

What an incredible song!

First of all, has everyone noticed the bicycle bell?  Ahhhhh!

And, that moment when Brian is singing "Sunday morning / skies of blue / Yo te amo / Means I love you"
WOW! makes me think I've died and gone to heaven!

You've just mentioned the part of the song that I don't like. Those "Yo te amo" lyrics just don't fit imo. rest of the song is cool though



From facebook (did Brian write more with Jon Bon Jovi?):

The Beach Boys 50th Anniversary ReUnion Tour
Mike Love has dismissed reports suggesting his plans for Beach Boys shows without bandmates Al Jardine and Brian Wilson.

The singer has booked a South American show for his spin-off Beach Boys band, which features guitarist Bruce Johnston, and a second show planned for Texas has been cancelled after venue bosses realised it wouldn’t involve the original bandmates.

Mike has spoken out to clarify his plans, insisting dates he’s planning with his Beach Boys band do not reflect on the reunited act.

He insists he’s making plans for the Wilson-led Beach Boys beyond 28 September, when the reunion tour ends in London.

He tells Rolling Stone, “There’s only one 50th anniversary, obviously, but… there’s talk of us going and doing a return to the Grammys next year, and there’s talk about doing another album together.

“There’s nothing in stone, but there’s a lot of ideas being floated around. So, after this year, after completing the 50th anniversary reunion, we’ll entertain doing some more studio work and see what we can come up with and can do in the future.”

And Love reveals there’s still a treasure trove of original Beach Boys songs to be mined for a follow-up to this year’s comeback album That’s Why God Made the Radio (WE TOLD YOU!) – they include demos with the late Carl Wilson’s vocals and an unreleased Dennis Wilson composition, as well as songs Wilson wrote with Jon Bon Jovi.

Endless Summer indeed!




I wonder if the Dennis song could be "Oh Lord" which Brian also tried for the '85 sessions.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

"Who ever said, love could die"

That song would fit perfectly

Well, Brian has no working past with "I've got a friend" as war as we know. But "Oh Lord" was worked on for the Beach Boys '85 album. On the otehr hand I don't know if Dennis wrote anything of OL or if it was a Brian solo

Does anybody find strange the lyric that appears in "There and Back Again":

"Why don't you fall/to the ground..."

This mystifies me...it's an odd request of someone with whom you are trying to make up...

Well, maybe I'm too drunk right now, but I can't find that lyric. Are you sure that that is what they sing?

It goes, "Just Call, Just Call, Just Fall" it changes to have a sort of double meaning like getting older and waiting.

It's at the end of this verse:
The clouds are breaking, it's a beautiful day
For a wonderful, Pacific coast getaway
The sun is shining, could we just find a way
If you just call, just fall, just fall
To the ground

Meaning what, she's an angel? Join him on earth?

Or do a face-plant upon seeing each other after years? I dunno. That could prove counterproductive.

Small problem. No vocals. No one - lead, backing, demo, scratch. Nada.  Cracking track, mind.

I hope we're just going to get to hear the original Carl and Dennis songs/demos and not have to make do with 're-imaginings' by the group. Or is everyone here just perfectly content with having a re-recorded version of California Feeling whilst the original languishes in the vaults, and thus wouldn't mind the same happening to other unreleased material?

I interpreted the quote to mean it could be re-recorded by the current roster when they were discussing what material was available for the next record.

Andrew, what's your opinion if they were to add current-day backing vocals to Dennis' track "Wouldn't It Be Nice To Live Again" for release on the next album?  That's the most outstanding unreleased non-Caribou DW track in the vaults, so I would think it's likely that they would release that over any other (unless they add all their own vocals to the currently vocal-less "I've Got A Friend") , and I'm thinking they would be inclined to bolster it with their vocals.   In your opinion, would that tread on the sanctity of the track, or would it be OK (provided, of course, it sounded good...and given the quality of vocal arrangements & performances on the new album, I'm inclined to think it would).

It would be a completely f***ing insane idea. Brian & Carl's existing bvs are stellar. "(WIBNT)LA" belongs - unimproved - on either a deluxe reissue of Surf's Up or a new archive release - not a new BB album. They did that, I'd rip them a righteous and entirely deserved new one.
