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!

31 Session one of "Break Away" (1969) on which Brian shares author credits with "Reggie Dunbar" (Murry)

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:
