Nice, I do love those years of the band.  Still got it though the background vocals sound a little slick for Blondie's rawness.

I see this was linked to a couple of pages back on the general Soundstage thread. My apologies!

That being said, nice to see a high-quality video of this performance. I watched Blondie perform the tune with Brian, Al and Dave in Boston a couple of years ago, and it was special then, too.

Kinda funny how there's more Beach Boys on that stage than the official touring band that owns The Beach Boys name.

Wow!! I mean WOW!!!  Blondie on stage with Ricky again! And Billy on keys! Shades of London, 1972! Brian's making more use of Blondie than the Stones did!  Grin

Would love to see Rick making a few guest appearances during Brian's upcoming tour. And Billy too! And Al with his white suit (again) getting into it and enjoying himself!

Man, looking forward to seeing Blondie sing a few songs on stage again. Hoping for "Hold On Dear Brother" if it isn't too much to ask!

Brian, making up for lost time........making up for Blondie & Ricky's being absent for the C50.  Take that, Mike & Brucie!

Now.........where's Dave.  Paging David Marks! Would LOVE to see all these guys on the same stage together this year.

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears, and she's already working on my brain. I only looked in her eyes, but I picked up something I just can't explain. I, I bet I know what she’s like, and I can feel how right she’d be for me. It’s weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what she’s picking up from me. I hope it’s good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

this is gold. The various BB playing amazing versions of their classics; this is just a dream come true. The only thing better would be all the BB together in this venture. Blondie is rockin' on the solo.

Agree. This is (as we say here in Blighty) the dog's bollox. My only addition would be a more relaxed setting, get rid of the seats, get a noisier crowd in… drag out those endings … crank up the amps…light up, pass out the beers… ROCK!!!!!!!

Sounds very much like the Crystal Palace gig version of WH from '72.

Did they change the lyrics? In the studio version it's "Eat up, eat up, eat up honey" and here it sounds different, though I can't make out the actual words.

Blondie's still a great singer/performer! Glad the original version doesn't have a sax solo. Grin

I know this is going to raise the ire of the faithful here, but I like Blondie's vocals on this better than Carl's. Blondie has a rocker voice. Carl just sounds so strained on "Wild Honey" and , as a Speech Therapist, I cringe at the thought of him shredding his vocal cords trying to "rock out." I can barely listen to him sing it. Blondie's more raw natural voice fits much better, IMHO.

Can't totally disagree with that but it goes to show what kind of range Carl possessed. Blondie does seem to handle it with no problem whatsoever. Wonder how Al or Dave would do on W/H??

Not to worry, Carl isn't shredding his vocal chords now

What's wrong with his voice?

If BW really wants to do "the rock n' roll album" next, ditch those smooth session player guitarists and get Blondie in there playing rhythm guitar with some occasional leads. Great filthy tone! Add David Marks & Fataar, "accidentally" remove some of Mertens' solo spots, you're sorted!

What are recording rates like in Holland?

This is amazing. I'm way more excited about and impressed by this performance than anything from the C50 Beach Boys reunion.

Blondie is a great addition to the band Smiley

You and me both!  Between the thin production on the stripped down albums (Smiley Smile, Wild Honey, and Friends) and Carl's "forced" delivery, I wasn't a fan of the song until I finally heard Blondie's take (which I LOVE!).  Seeing that the boys always referred to it as an R&B number, I'm thinking the Boys themselves preferred Blondie's more soulful take, which is why I suspect they gave him the vocal in concerts.  Carl is over all the best singer the band ever had but everyone had their particular strengths and that said, I think Blondie had the most "soulful" voice of the bunch.

Since Brian didn't tour in the early 70's is this the first time he's played on stage with both Rickey and Blondie?

Carl recorded it in a higher key. They lowered it down for Blondie. 1990s-Carl would have sounded wonderful in this key. Cowsill sings it in the original key, if I recall.

Someone could correct me if I'm wrong but I think all three of them were at a a benefit for Carl in the early 2000s.  Though they might not have performed together.
