The Beach Boys after Pet Sounds and Good Vibrations

on Thu Jan 18, 2018 9:44 pm
This division into two eras----up to PS and "GV" and after-----may be temporary
but it's handy for the moment, as basically we're starting from scratch again.
 

I gave "It's Gettin' Late" a listen today as it featured in a battle with "It's O.K." (which I voted for, for old times' sake and because
I love it). Still, "IGL" sounded great to me. I must knuckle down and give those late BB albums a serious listen some time.

This is an incredible listen: Ghosty TMRS discusses Friends with ESQ's David Beard. It's
full of eye-opening information, some of it possibly revealed for the first time anywhere:

According to David Beard in the above discussion, Marilyn sang on "Busy Doin' Nothin'"---she's most
clearly audible in the "directions" part. (I see this seems to be common knowledge but not to me!)



See http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,5525.msg69787.html#msg69787,
where Marilyn is credited with singing "harmonies". H'mm...

At 21:26 in the VR&PS video linked above, Ghosty and David discuss
"Transcendental Meditation". And it makes perfect sense what they say!

A fantastic recording that should have done better in the US:

It was fifty years ago yesterday that "Meant For You" was recorded. My, how time flies...



With thanks to c-man at Smiley for that information. Also thanks to Zach, who
points out that after the "meant... for..."  chords, "Al and Mike sing 'doo's in 6ths
together,  while Bruce and Carl repeatedly sing rounds of the same melody".

The last song Bruce sang on (as backup)----for a while:

This cool instrumental is for PSF poster theSuperMetroid, who probably doesn't know this forum exists:

This song has been getting some needless stick at PSF. Still on the lookout for avocado cream...

One of my favourites from Surf's up! I recall watching footage of a live version from the Boys in the '70s, quite rare and on YouTube some years back now. I wonder if it's still online...Probably not, lol!

All I could find was this live audio version--still pretty good though:

This article about "It's About Time" makes for a fascinating read. With thanks to Rocker at Smiley:

"Gettin' Hungry" is one of those rare pop songs whose verse is ad libitum and the chorus a tempo. The only other I can think of is Stevie Wonder's "If You Really Love Me". All further suggestions welcome.

Is my memory correct, or did the record label get it wrong and believe Carl was Brian? Or was the front sleeve a pic of the whole band?

Seems it's a Swedish pressing: http://www.45cat.com/record/cl15513se. Those Swedes are all the same--too much midnight sun and homemade alcohol, lol (jk).

This is a fascinating topic relating to "Little Bird", particularly what SWD has to say:

According to AGD's book, "[t]he CD reissue [of "Marcella"] corrected a strange fault during the chorus present in every vinyl version." bryand at SPF can't hear it--and nor can I! We're still waiting for AGD to comment...
