The piano playing technique also sounds a lot like the harpsichord playing on Wonderful (smile version). I really like the song, wish I knew more about it!

I've been listening to "Sherry She Needs Me" quite a bit lately. It's such a fascinating recording. Still, despite it's oddness, I don't think I could imagine hearing the song any other way. The vocals, the track, everything is perfect just how it is. It's difficult to describe why I like so much, I just do.

Following Disney Boy's numerous positive comments about Viggie, I downloaded & listened to it. He was dead right - what a beautiful song that is indeed! Hands down the best song written by Mike, even surpasses Big Sur (3/4). Indian flutes, the bridge, the singing - all is idyllic! Traditionally, Native American theme rules!

1 wee note: at 1st glance I thought the title can be read like ['vigi], not ['veʤi].

Glad you likes it - there's two versions, one with prominent flute on the verses and the fade and one without, both of which are great.

This is the 'busier' version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CruGtoJM8Os

'Glow Crescent Glow' is almost as good by the way, so track down a copy of that too if you can...

 Isn't funny how Brian sounds perfectly natural singing Marcella after all these years of hearing Carl sing it   on record and in concert ? I remember a time in the late 70s and then again thru the whole Landy era when it was hard to imagine Brian recording a  NOTE  of new music  muchless  The road warrior he has become   and then recording the wealth of new music especially since 2000 -BWPS

That's a good thought.  Did you read the thread where Mark, in the new ESQ, was saying he had a whole "bonus" disc ready to roll full of just such backing and vocal only tracks?
Let it out already !!!

You've got that right.  I know it's down to a few classic tracks, but for me Christmas Day should have been in the final.  I need to go take a look, now The Man With All The Toys is taking a beating.
And while I'm here...Carl's Soulful Old Man Sunshine (MIC version) was one of the Big Hits from our Christmas party last night.

Morning Christmas is a complete masterpiece.
Little Saint Nick is a classic which you can't get enough of.
Merry Christmas Baby isn't too bad, but still better than Christmas Day.
Man With All The Toys I'd rank the same as Christmas Day, but I changed my vote because it looked like Christmas Day was going to lose.

I'd say Christmas Day should have gone even earlier, before Santa's Beard

BW moment that's kicking my ass lately:

'Southern California', the whole song, but especially: "whoa whoa it's magical, living your dreams, don't want to sleep, you might miss something. Whoa whoa whoa it's magical, I'm glad it happened to me... nodded off in the band room, woke up in history."
I've heard SC many times but one day, several months ago, I was walking down the street with this song playing in my headphones, and for some reason I just cried. Now I listen to that song all the time and personally feel that if Brian Wilson's musical career had ended with this album and that song, I'd have been totally okay with that. 'Southern California' is a nice cap on things. From "surfin' is the only life, the only way for me" to "...and when you wake up here, you wake up everywhere. Maumamayama glory Hallelujah, oooooooh." 47 years.
Of course, I'm glad Brian got to make a few more albums, made a solid album with the Beach Boys and is working on more as we speak. But TLOS and 'Southern California' feels to me like the guy walking into the sunset at the end of the film.

Morning Christmas is seriously one of the best Dennis tracks.. Something so sublime and special about that track. It's a shame that it's so underrated.

Some random musical moments that I really get a kick out of:
--

The "party" bridge part of Wonderful on Smiley that sounds like a bunch of people stoned and laughing

The very creepy yet relaxing sounding Baldwin organ on Fall Breaks

ending tag to Funky Pretty

Mt Vernon & Fairway piano/synth theme (I really wish there was a longer version of this without the narration than what is on the GV boxed set)

The synth bass on just about all of Love You, but to make an example, Let Us Go On This Way... I turn it up loud and crank up the bass. Must sound amazing on a subwoofer.

Bruce's tender lead vocals on At My Window. "And the faster I ran/I Ran out of breath and I fell to the ground". That part gets stuck in my head a lot. By far the best thing he did in the band.

The intro to Salt Lake City on the stereo remix (which was horribly cut off on the album version). That bass part that sounds like 2 bass players are harmonizing in unison is absolutely amazing.

Take 1 and 2 of Hang On To Your Ego backing track. The horns are more prominent in the verses. I prefer this version lately.

The organ on Do It Again. Also on the SOT, there is one version where you can only hear Mike's lead vocal and Brian's "Bom bom bom bom bom bom!" high falsetto vocal and at the very end Brian does a little variation ending with a really high "wooo!" that reminds me of what Paul Mccartney does on songs like "Oh! Darling" or something. Is is beautiful and worth checking out! Only lasts for like 2 seconds.


Brian's lead vocal on Here Comes The Night is perfect. Not sure what it is, it is just a perfect lead vocal.

That is a great vocal, contrast it with the disco version and you realize what a mistake it was to put that out.

On Smiley Smile, the moment when you drift off into the pleasant dream of the fadeout to Wind Chimes and then the intro to Gettin' Hungry snaps you awake like the blare of an alarm clock.

On our way through this "backstage" maze, Bruce joined up with the group and said hello, singing "It Never Rains in Southern California" and joking with some of the older ladies. I'm not sure if they knew he was a Beach Boy or simply an enthusiastic elderly gay gentleman.
