I'm sorry to stick my nose in this one, but...

You guys believe Mr. Boyd's story?  "Stepped on a rake'?

Possibly from planting one's tongue too far in one's cheek, as well.

No, not really.

But if that story can end that discussion, I'm willing to accept it as the truth anyway.

Al's bio on BB King's says he sings lead on Transcendental Meditation. Here it's listed as Brian. Discuss.

I think I was the one that went to bat for it being Brian.  I don't remember what I wrote but I think I said while I didn't rule out one of the voices being Al, it sure sounds like a triple tracked Brian when I listened closely.  Al could mimic Brian's falsetto pretty closely, but it didn't sound like him to me.  Still, not out of the question.

He DID sing lead on "TM Song" on 15 BIG ONES though.  Could he have gotten the two confused?  It would not surprise me.

Al sang a lot of the falsetto parts on Friends, which, combined with some kind of official word from Al's "people", leads me to lean towards him.

Also, I'm rereading that "Clint Schleinzig" story that Alan Boyd posted as an explanation as to who was singing at the end of the God Only Knows clip, and it just seems really really fake to me. I don't even think Schleinzig is a real last name.

I'd guess it Brian with Al doing one of the parts. Al could sound like Brian at times, but never THAT much like Brian.

I feel strongly that Lonely Sea needs some additional credit given to Mike and Dennis who (beginning at 1:55) essentially sing a round with Brian, each taking solo line turns.

So much fun re reading this. Maybe I missed this, but one thing caught my eye. On the Knebworth Cal. Girls, Al should deserve a mention for singing the tag and the lead on the choruses. It's his falsetto.

One thing:

I saw earlier on discussion of a section of the Smiley Smile "Wind Chimes". The Official thread reads...

Dennis: Close your eyes and lean back
Listen to wind chimes

Dennis clearly sings, "Listen to wind chimes", but I disagree about the first part also being him. The most damning evidence is that it wouldn't fit the flow of the rest of the song - one member sings the first line, another sings the 2nd. For instance, in the beginning, Brian sings, "Hanging down from my window," followed by Mike, "Those are my wind chimes."

The entire song follows this pattern - why would this one line with what is clearly two very different sounding voices break that pattern?

There's an alternate/rough mix of the song out there, not a fan edit, that has the full line in this part of the song: "Close your eyes and lean back now," which is also on the original Smile recording. The "now" is, for whatever reason, edited out on the official Smiley Smile album.

I always thought this line sounded like Brian, but if you hear this mix, you'll know it's him - the "now" has all the characteristics of a Brian Wilson vocal, no one else. I'm fairly certain it's actually...

Brian: Close your eyes and lean back (now)
Dennis: Listen to wind chimes

Even if it isn't Brian, there's no way Dennis does both lines.

Anyone agree? Disagree?

Yeah, definitely sounds like Brian's weird Pied Piper voice.

That's what I always thought too.  The first line never sounded like Dennis to me.

Well, now that I finally found the thread I wanna bring it back to topic & see if there's anything we're missing, of course, we've got the official stuff, but how about the not so unofficial stuff?

I'll get back to the stuff I'm wondering about when I check over this whole thread and make sure I don't repeat anything
