What a great time meeting John and Scott...and Steve and Angela....
Thanks again to Scott and John from Don and Jan for the pics and the company at Starbucks,,,what a great evening..hanging out with the band and seeing a performance that exceeded my expectations....... by miles....
Scott, loved your vocals and guitar, and a special nod to your guitat duet with the
Barbara Ann girl Your vocals and guitar work were a knockout...
John....you played your ass off...looked really cool up there.......and singing those great vocals without missng a beat....
The harmony was unbelievable ....absolutely deserving of The Beach Boys name and reputation.
All in all guys...in all sincerity...a memorable night and memorable performance......
Thanks for a special evening.
Hope you get a little rest before hitting the road again.
Don & Jan

I sometimes play a bit of lesser-known Beach Boys stuff on my shows on my college's radio station...
But, yeah, running any type of broadcast facility is EXPENSIVE!! FCC license fees, buying/maintaining the equipment, ASCAP/BMI fees, staff salaries, potential FCC fines ("indecency", logs out of order, forgetting to say/play legal ID on the hour, on the air for less than 4 hours, etc.), etc. etc. If worse comes to worse, there's always podcasting.

"78 single by Bonnie Lou - Two Step Side Step and Please Don't Laugh When I Cry.
condition good/fair, plays well with with no skipping or jumping, just a few crackles here and there as you would expect from records of this age.
Item will be well packed against the rigours of the postage system.
Please contact for non UK postage. thanks"

I don't think any of our British friends have noticed this yet, as there are no bids placed.
This is a 78 from the mid-50s, featuring Murry Wilson's "Two Step, Side Step" as recorded by country artist Bonnie Lou. The seller obviously doesn't know the Beach Boys connection, so it's pretty cheap. I'd bid on it myself, except that the seller only ships to the U.K. and I'm stateside.

That was Bruce on the 2007 God Only Knows preview clip!
Definitely...I still can't figure out why they did that.

How come nobody has Soulful Old Man Sunshine? I figure that along with Celbrate the News, Loop de Loop and Breakaway would help make 20/20 a good album.
I had a 1969-only Sunflower featuring just those:
Slip On Through / This Whole World / All I Wanna Do / Got To Know The Woman / San Miguel / Loop-De-Loop (Flip Flyin' In An Airplane) / Break Away
Celebrate The News / Soulful Old Man Sunshine / Games Two Can Play / Forever / At My Window / Cottonfields (The Cotton Song)

I got it in the post yesterday, and frankly its a car crash. How it ever got issued is a mystery. The poems are clichéd, the backing - what little of it there is - is half-hearted and idiotic, and Kalinich sounds like he's doing a turn in a special needs show.
Strictly for completists.
However, the thing SJK did with Paul Steel for the ESQ journal (I think I got that right...) called Ocean is great!

Just got me a US copy of TLOS - the Best Buy version w/bonus tracks - and it's definitely better as regards the pverall sonics compared with my all-but-unlistenable European pressing.
That's what I thought. I have the US version, and it sounds fine to me.
Maybe someone should show the waveforms for the two versions so we can do an A/B comparison.
Now THAT's a good idea! Anyone...?

What a lazy fake! Why would there be a poster for a 1971 concert with a picture of the Beach Boys from what, 1976? There are so many things wrong with that poster, so many anachronisms.
and this one pops up regularly on Ebay...
Yeah I have that poster and when I saw it I knew that the picture was from the late 70s and didn't correlate with the original date but whatever.
