Ghosty TMRS linked this at PSF. Interesting, I think, for all those who couldn't make Alan's recent shows:

I believe he does. However, he's been on the road for many years now. He's allowed to forget from time to time. In Appreciation of Alan Jardine  Biggrin

Can anyone tell me if this song was played live by another BB, or the BB themselves that is, other than Al doing it on his recent solo tour?

Doesn't work for me. Anyway...

This one is being voted on right now at Smiley. It's here because Al is most closely associated with it. That swelling synth note at 3:10 is to die for!

Great song! Always thought that. Carl's break on it is magnificent! Apparently he recorded that back stage before a concert.

This may be Alan's finest hour outside the context of TBB. His entry a little over one minute into NPP's"Tell Me Why" never fails to choke me up:

This cute Surf's Up song with a mostly Al vocal gets a awful lot of flak at EH:

This is what I wrote at our previous home (and now retrieved from Smiley) in December 2010 after a third hearing: 

A Postcard from California is a very warm, intimate record, more so than I'd expected. It is full of felicitous touches and dabs of instrumental colour----the guitar on the first track, the baritone sax on "Honkin'", some great vocal harmonies around the place, Brian in there sounding happy on "Drivin'", the "downhomey" take on "Rhonda"... "DFTS" is a timeless gem and "San Simeon" is gorgeous. Unlike the pastel shades of the album's cover, the music itself is rich and colourful. The few non-musical sounds are used to great effect. All the "old" tracks sound good in their new guise, not better but different... and good. "Honkin'" sounded lewd on Love You but gets just the right tongue-in-cheek treatment this time round. Alan is in great voice, as are Steve Miller and Crosby and Young (and Glen C). The whole atmosphere is joyous. The only track I still have to come to terms with is the album's closer. Is it just too intimate for my liking? Great chords though and again, those deft instrumental touches. I shall be playing Postcard again very soon and who knows?----maybe that final track will click with me eventually.

That final track has since clicked after a recent listen. Mission accomplished!

I will have to give that album a listen again, as it's been some seasons now! Great [old] review anyway. Very Happy

This is my all time favourite Al song in the BB. Just brilliant!  Great vox, with awesome 'whole' instrumental layout and melody. One of the best...

That b-side though---another Carl awesomeness....

"California Saga" is being reviewed and voted on at Hoffman right now. Naturally it got 5/5 from me, all of it. It's here because Alan had such a big hand in it:

They've since moved on, first to C&TP-ST (which I'm not a fan of so I didn't vote on it) and now 15 Big Ones. I'm not a fan of that either, save for "It's O.K." (voted) and "JOIML" (waiting to vote). That said, OP Watamushi mentioned the MiC mix of "Susie Cincinnati", I gave it a listen and was blown away by it. I've read complaints about Mark Linett's mixing style (too much compression or something) but I think it sounds great! I'll admit it is a little busier than the version I'm used to but so are the streets of Cincinnati.
