Hey Little Tomboy is creepy. Banging women by the pool is fun and conjures up warm summer thoughts a Beach Boys song should.

Funny, "Wild Honey" is probably in my top 5 Carl vocal performances and I love the f*** out of the theremin in this version and wish it hadn't been mixed so low. TELL ME I'M NOT ALONE Cry

You are NOT alone! I love Carl's performance on WH and also miss the tannerin on the 1972 live version. Even so, this live version is a winner, imho.

 Love "Wild Honey" Love

This version of Wild Honey is the kind of track you play to your friends who think The Beach Boys were un-hip and made saccharine filled tunes and nothing else. QUite simply mind-blowing and a reminder why The Beach Boys are our favourite band.

Somehow forgot about WH-1972. Once again, words of thanking go to Cliff for uploading this file. Good job!

Now to the nitty-gritty. 1st, the song's intro is totally epic, notwithstanding it's similar to that of L.A.'s Here Comes the Night. 2nd point: at 1st, I didn't like Blondie's howling vocs at all (the only time I thought so, otherwise I consider him a great singer!), but on the 3rd-5th listen it kind of grew on getting used to it. I think now, after 10 listens or so, that Blondie did great performance! Cool extended falsettos! About live arrangement: going by memory, it seems to be the only case when the BBs song has 2 guitar solos (each of which is terrific in their own different style). Electronic spacey sounds surely added something, especially combined with the rest set of instruments &, of course, Blondie's voice. Also, some posters complained about silence of theremin & to me, the synth helped solving it. Actually, it worked better than the former, 'twas no less psychedelic substitute. I generally like when the artists do their numbers on stage not just how it was done in the studio, but change-challenging them in one or another way. So, I don't regret the sonically low/lack of theremin.

All in all, to sum up the aforementioned, this is a great version! In itself. Without comparing it to Carl's classic. Btw, speaking of that, I'm a fan of anything (except Girl Don't Tell Me & All Dressed Up for School) sung by Carl in the 60s. And Wild Honey, along with How She Boogalooed It, is his crown achievement, very rocking!
