I feel like "Add Some Music" would have been a better title for this set, even though I much prefer Feel Flows over that track.  "Add Some Music" was also the original title for Sunflower.

Agree. The more I think about it the more I donít understand the Feel Flows title. Great song I just donít see the correlation. And the random idiot or casual fan wonít know what it means.

ADD SOME MUSIC was rejected by the Beach Boys when it came time to finally assemble their first Warners LP.

"Feel Flows," the song, as utilized by Cameron Crowe in his popular and well-received film "Almost Famous," was lifted out of relative obscurity by its placement as the film's closing track, reaching an entirely new audience at the time.

FEEL FLOWS, the CD compilation, is a way of giving some long-overdue props to Carl Wilson, who was "the glue" of this entire period, but whose untimely death in 1998 had served to obscure the magnitude of his contributions to the "democratic" period that the band entered into from 1968-73. All the surviving members of the band are well aware of just how significant Carl's contributions were in keeping the band on track in a time frame when things could just as easily fallen apart. I'm guessing that all of them wanted to use that song title as a way of recalibrating everyone's understanding of the band's history--just as Brian decided to honor his brother by using another of Carl's songs, LONG PROMISED ROAD, as the title of a documentary.

I don't think the band had the title thrust upon them, and even if such was the case, they've had plenty of time to change their minds (which they have been well-known for doing over the years!)...

Imagine we got a landlocked bonus disc 😍

I wonder if that was very considered. Hopefully we get an in depth Alan or Mark interview soon.

I know all of this and agree somewhat, but I still think that "Add Some Music" just works better as a title for a box set compilation and for John Q Public who unfortunately has little familiarity to some of the music on this set.  BB fanatics like us would buy the set regardless of what it was called.

And AFAIK the "Add Some Music" title was never actually "rejected" by anyone, it was just changed to Sunflower for the final approved album after several iterations of the track lineup had been rejected.  If the album had been approved by Warner/Reprise earlier in 1970 it would have gone out with that title.

"Add Some Music" is a mediocre and prosaic title in general, for the song or single putative album it's OK, but for an ambitious box set "Feel Flows" is far superior.

This. "Sunflower" is a much better title. "Feel Flows" is an insanely superior box title.

The 'Til I Die piano demo is an instrumental run-through of the chords, very rough and basic. But it's nice to hear Brian's voicings this clear.

The Surf's Up 1971 remake track with 1966 Brian vocals is a weird thing. It's intriguing, but not a great listening experience. I wonder just how much of it was flown-in. Perhaps the muted trumpets were also flown-in. I think I would have preferred hearing the 1971 backing track as it was left, but it's still nice to be able to hear it in some form.

There's an alternate mix of "Long promised road" "out there", in hd, you can clearly hear the instruments, and the vocals are crispy, that clocks in at 4:51. On the FF box set there are: the 2019 master, 3:32, a cappella, 4:00, live 1972, 4:14 and track/backing vocals, 3:38 versions. Did they miss out on that one? And is the rest of the SU album available in hd, like the "LPR" alternate mix - is it a fan mix?

What do you mean by "flown-in"? It's presented exactly as recorded; no extra instruments were added.

If the set is called feel flows a song off of a  1971 album wouldnít you think the cover art would be something similar to that  same
 album?

I think the people working on this set know what they're doing as far as choosing a title and cover art.

They don't have to do a hard sell on this for hardcore fans; we'll buy this if they're loose discs in a manila envelope.

This is being targeted to a wider array of potential buyers (and not necessarily total random schlubs, but fans of this type of music that still don't know about early 70s BBs), and the title and cover art are being presented as a *new* product.

The title needs to be short and punchy and memorable hopefully, and the cover art eye-catching.

I can't not have a soft spot for the cover art for "Sunflower" and "Surf's Up", but this type of set clearly needs something else, for many reasons.

I don't want to get too bogged down in the semantics of an "Add Some Music" title. I'd say if that was the title, it would beg questions (e.g. "add some music to WHAT?"), and "Add Some Music to Your Day" is probably too long. Social media hashtags and metadata for all sorts of online services are hindered the longer a title is. "Feel Flows" is perfect.

With the country (hopefully...) coming out of a pandemic, my sense is that the powers that be opted for something more positive in tone/color than the wonderful but ultra-moody SURF'S UP album art.

And this way they split the difference--by titling the collection with a song from SURF'S UP, but referencing the art from the "album offering" of SUNFLOWER.

And they did the sunflower up proudly with Disk Five, n'est-ce pas?

I don't see it like that. I think "Add some Music" would be a nice title. It just advices you to add music to basically everything. Just add some music. Now, I guess the title would make the most sense in combination with the backcover of "Sunflower" which actually mentions some ingredients (I guess that was the idea?). But what the heck. "Add some Music" is a nice phrase.

Regarding the new set: I'm fine with "Feel Flows". It's not as catchy, sure, but it works as a description of how the Beach Boys' best music was done: By letting your feelings flow into it.

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.

  FEEL FLOWS is the  perfect title in commercial and aesthetic terms. Best known song on the box, heard by millions since 2000 via the film Almost Famous.
