wasn't Mike "executive producer" of the Pet Sounds Sessions?

it's like a little paper crown he can wear so he feels important.


i think it would be cool if Do It Again doesn't make it onto the album

Usually 'executive producer' is the 'money man'. Most of the time it's just an honorary title.

I'm sure I'm not the only one here who is both excited and very apprehensive re this album. 'Do It Again' on the (suspected) line-up is kind of playing to all my worst fears, i.e. that it'll be a mawkish, regressive and corny, an album worth of 'Brian is Back's'. Let's hope they're genuinely more concerned with producing something credible than commercial. It's taken a fair while for the BB's legacy to get where it is now after the awful '80's, and now they're probably more highly critically respected than ever, after SMiLE etc. Don't ruin it guys!

I think this is hilarious  LOL LOL LOL LOL

The  B104 FM music news page is now quoting this board, and it's posts, as an official news source on the new album.

Hey, were more legit than most news sources  LOL

Yeah, if they were quoting AGD, Jon S. or other honored guests.

They haven't.  Haven't heard AGD confirm those titles (cept Do It Again of course)

"Shelter" & "Bob & Sue" have been mentioned to me by one of my better sources. Dudes name was... Cohen, or something like that.

Personally, being the fact freak I am, I'll be fascinated to see if all the new material is indeed new, as in newly composed.

I think they should already have punted Do It Again to radio stations etc to ride the Grammy publicity bandwagon. At least then the jocks would have had something to play to go with the Grammy news.  It's a treat to release the vid for fans, for sure, but they could also have put the thing to work for them…  Maybe they have…

Maybe they have a better single in mind. Or it's simply too early. If they release a single too far in advance of the album, it might work
against them.

I wonder  if the actual leaks of song titles, or other info, is actually a few steps behind actual developments. They are saying four songs are in
the can, but maybe it's more by now. Maybe they will record 20 tracks and whittle it down to the best ten. Who knows?

Andrew Doe just gave us a clue, when he said something about, I wonder if they are all new songs as in recently composed.
I would suspect a few old songs or old song ideas that were never completed are likely to be pulled out of the old song bag,
in addition to some songs that are being composed now, or very recently composed.

I say that because historically Wilson and the Beach Boys have released new albums, with unreleased songs from years before.
Also because Andrew Doe is kind of hinting about that.

I was so excited about the Smile release, and I am equally excited about this new album. In a span of two years, less than two years,
The Beach Boys are giving us the mythical Smile and a brand new album! How damm cool is that!

Is there a number I can call to ask them to hurry up, why is the Do it Again video not on Youtube anymore ?

Sure. A 5-CD box, with a double LP version, two singles, a case-bound book, a photo book, a poster, and oh, 100+ other items.

I blame Mike.

This of course might have been putting people off the scent, but studio shots of BW last summer did say he was working on re-recording unreleased material with Joe Thomas, right?

All this about the new album, has reminded me of an obvious question.

Will a couple of archival tracks be used in a manner similar to Soul Searchin
so that Carl and or Dennis Wilson will be on the album ?

I have no prediction, but I really am curious about it, I thought
Soul Searchin on the Gettin In Over My Head album was good.
I was surprised there was archival material of that quality lying
around unused. It wasn't the greatest track I ever heard, by any
means, but it was one of the better cuts on that album IMO


I can't stand the anticipation, so ok, semi confirmed sources say
there are four tracks in the can, So depending how fresh that information
is, there could easily be a couple more by now.

Bruce Johnston, was quoted saying, he keeps playing the one cut over
and over again, somebody should just ask him to be a pal, and post a 
30 second clip! or at least give us the name of the one he likes.

So Wilson cuts the backing tracks and then the guys fly in to sing their
parts, like the pet sounds days ? I would tend to doubt that, because
Love and Marks are quoted as saying, they are involved in writing some
material, so if it was your song wouldn't you at least be at the studio
through the whole process?

If Johnston is in England, does that mean no recording is going on until
he flies back to the states or is that a misconception on my part.

If they only have four in the can, I hope they hold a couple sessions and
get that number up so they have a realistic chance of getting it out by
late summer. I wish we could get a little more info. I guess its still too early
I am expecting a second single to follow DIA closer to release time, that
just seems obvious.

We don't know how many songs are in the can.  We've simply heard rumors of four titles.  They have been recording off and on for awhile.  David was just in the studio putting down some guitar on some track the other day.  Darian was in the studio with Brian the other day.  Who cares what song it is that Bruce likes.  We can't hear it yet anyway.  And he's not in England, he lives in California.  Mike has mentioned that he'd like to write some stuff, but we haven't heard of anything definite.  Same with Dave.  We'll get more info when they want us to have more info.  I'll repeat something here that I had to repeat over and over when we were waiting for info on TSS...Patience.

Is DIA definitely going to be on the new album? Seems strange to me to have a new album of new material and then one re-recorded song thrown on there.

I think it would be a cool idea to keep DIA off of the new album and release it as a colored 7" single. Maybe with a re-recorded Friends or a live in studio track as the b side.  That would make for a great Record Store Day release this year.

Right you are. I have no idea about anything. I got excited about the "four songs in the can" and the Johnston remark, about the one tune.
Then I watch the DIA video, and get pumped up some more.

I don't even know what methods or procedures they use, if Brian cuts the tracks, and then they come in, or its different for
every track or what. If they cut just enough, or prune it down from lots of tracks.

It's way too early, I need to chill, and wait two or three months. for some news.

The only thing is I cant help it, I have a feeling the album could be special. DIA sounds good, they sounded good on the Grammys
and I need to wait, I feel they were pretty cool about dribbling out info for the fans on Smile, and It looks like they are gonna continue
spoonfeeding the faithful with a few tidbits, AGD will see we know something

and I need to wait, I feel they were pretty cool about dribbling out info for the fans on Smile, and It looks like they are gonna continue
spoonfeeding the faithful with a few tidbits, AGD will see we know something



So here's the deal.

1.) Brian started recording backing tracks for some sort of project last year. This was documented by several sources.

2.) Eddie Bayers, a session player used by Imagination co-producer Joe Thomas, tweeted that he was working on new BW material.

3.) Jean Seivers, Brian's publicist, said at the time that Brian was recording some previously unreleased but already written material at Joe's studio in Illinois.

4.) In subsequent interviews, Brian talked about having written new songs, including the Shelter and Bill and Sue tunes, but in collaboration with Joe Thomas and Jeff.

5.) The Do It Again sessions likewise took place in the middle of last year.

6.) All of this happened before there was any news of an official reunion.

7.) Once that came out, news of the album started flowing fast and furious. There has been no more mention of Joe Thomas as a co-producer, but he is mentioned as co-writer of the God / Radio song.

8.) The group apparently recorded on some of Brian's stuff before the end of 2011, and they have obviously been going at it over the last month or so.

9.) Mike and Brian were writing a song in the studio a week or two ago, according to Andrew.

10.) Dave and Mike have some songs they have brought to the project and hope to include as well.

So, taking these 10 points together, let's draw some conclusions.

It seems likely that tracks for the album were recorded throughout last year by Brian, Joe and Jeff. It is probably relatively quick and easy for the group to put vocals on top of those and finish them up. Even if they only managed 4 or 5 titles, they could have finished a third to half of the album this way.

Some of those tracks might well be trunk songs, dating back to the 70s, 80s or 90s. We had official word that Brian was working on some older tunes. Now, whether those are older tunes fans are familiar with or not, who knows.

It also seems clear that Brian and Mike are doing some on-the-spot writing. So a track or two (or three) on the final album could well come from these last couple of months' worth of sessions. Is Joe Thomas involved? No one knows. But given that Darian has been shown in the studio, it looks like some of Brian's band is.

Finally, you have material from Mike and Dave. (Al and Bruce haven't said anything about contributing). So perhaps a couple of tracks on the finished album could come from them.

Therefore, I'd predict a finished album along these lines:

Ocean Way
The Beach Boys (Capitol, 2012)

Do It Again 2012
Shelter (JT session)
Black Widow (with lyrics rewritten by Mike)
The Private Life of Bill and Sue (JT session)
New Mike song (possibly with a BW credit added for cred)
That's Why God Made the Radio (JT session)
Dancin' the Night Away (possibly with Carl's voice kept)
New Brian-Mike collaboration
New Dave M. song (with ML and BW credits added)
New Brian-Mike collaboration
Still A Mystery (JT session)

Now, the exact old songs being used will probably be different. But I wouldn't be surprised at all if we ended up with something like this.

I just wanted to point out that the Facebook photo of the band standing around the microphone is clearly staged for the "Do It Again" video (note the production lights) and should not be considered representative of the band recording the new album. The boxes could be there simply to elevate the shorter members to improve shot composition and may have nothing to do with recording.

So you agree Mike and Bruce get Stamos if Brian gets Foskett? Ok. Lets move on to clause 112 subsection 15a.  'Mike to make no mention of Brians footwear Jan1-Dec 31 2012.'
