Information overload, often negative information... Too many outtakes... Stuff like that. The only thing I ever actively listen to these days is this:

I'm hoping this SMiLE mix is my way back in.

Still struggling. This may take a while.

Still struggling. I find I'm utterly unenthusiastic about the upcoming releases.

I think the answer is to start again from scratch building up a compact list of original 45s, EPs and LPs (plus a SMiLE mix). And maybe a documentary and a book or two...

I'll look into it soon. All is not lost.

I hope it all works out and you get back into the legendary BB!

Which BB album gave me hope at a black time in my life? Perhaps not a bad place to start...

Basically, it's an ultra-compact list of stuff, a sort of Beach Boys Survival Kit of a few recordings and books (and a documentary). I'll post it in due course.

You can't beat a good 'ol documentary to get you back into a band.
