GOK, though I asked him about both when they were being debated.

Andrew, are you referring to How She Boogalooed It or God Only Knows?

We've had "Bush Vibrations" and "Bomb Iran." I was thinking some other songs might lend themselves to modern imperialist ideology...

Small problem with your belief - I asked him. He said it wasn't. After listening to it.

Re: Starting a radio station [Smiley Smile Message Board]

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.

Murry Wilson song on British 78 on eBay [Smiley Smile Message Board]

Posted: 25 Oct 2008 05:23 PM CDT

I don't think any of our British friends have noticed this yet, as there are no bids placed.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=350112294500

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.

The 1989 series (Endless Summer) parts where from an indoor show this clip is from a stadium. Looks a little bit like in the Still Cruisin' video but Mike's outfit is different.

Cosmic, please desribe the venue for me. The show I saw last Sunday night was at a casino and we sure didn't get many of those songs you listed. Not happy about that! From what Scott has said here, the casino shows are different than a theatre or such. Just interested so I can post a follow up.

That was Bruce on the 2007 God Only Knows preview clip!

Definitely...I still can't figure out why they did that.

Thanks Smile-Holland! Smiley

hm, maybe I'll clear my history see if that works in the meantime

Re: 1985 shows [Smiley Smile Message Board]

Posted: 25 Oct 2008 10:58 AM CDT

There is a glitch on the 1983 page. I can't get to 1984 from there.

Re: Alternate Universe Beach Boys Albums.... [Smiley Smile Message Board]

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:

Side One:

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

Side Two:

Celebrate The News / Soulful Old Man Sunshine / Games Two Can Play / Forever / At My Window / Cottonfields (The Cotton Song)

Re: A World of Peace Must Come: opinions? [Smiley Smile Message Board]

Posted: 25 Oct 2008 09:11 AM CDT

I got it in the post yesterday, and frankly its a car crash. How it ever got issued is a mystery. The poems are clich├ęd, 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!

Re: Beach Boys concerts - professionally filmed [Smiley Smile Message Board]

Posted: 25 Oct 2008 09:04 AM CDT

I think it's from the 1989 TV series. That's also one of the best live versions of "Sloop John B" I've ever seen/heard...

Re: Compression and Clipping on TLOS - is it that bad? [Smiley Smile Message Board]

Posted: 25 Oct 2008 09:00 AM CDT

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...?

Re: The *official* Brian/BB picture thread [Smiley Smile Message Board]

Posted: 25 Oct 2008 08:53 AM CDT



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.

Re: Beach Boys concerts - professionally filmed [Smiley Smile Message Board]

Posted: 25 Oct 2008 08:20 AM CDT

hi rocker.......i have seen this before. i know i have it on vhs tape somewhere in the house. if i come across it i should be able to date it..at least when it was taped by me on the recorder.

Re: Beach Boys concerts - professionally filmed [Smiley Smile Message Board]

Posted: 25 Oct 2008 07:03 AM CDT

Great idea.

BTW This clip isn't from 1994 I guess, 'cause Jeff is still there. Maybe 1989?
