  1. I second (or third) that on Junior Brown! I erroneously left him off of my list...definitely a fave! His "Surf Medley" is AWESOME! :guitar:

  3. To answer your questions Carl... Brian Wilson WAS the Beach Boys, and the contemporary artist the Beatles respected the most at the time. In 1964, Brian Wilson succumbed to the stress of overworking and decided he could no longer tour with the Beach Boys. From then on he would dedicate all of his energies to writing and producing the band's records, which ultimately led to 'Pet Sounds' and 'Smile.' The only song on 'Smiley-Smile' that was in the form Brian had imagined and written it for the 'Smile' album, was the single 'Good Vibrations'...albeit in a slightly shorter version. The
  4. Thanks (I guess) Carl. You should appreciate the defense of your namesake. Beatleant started this, but I guess 97 posts qualifies him as above reproach on this board. He should try to "smile" more. ciao
  5. Check this link. Smile was divided into three movements, so be sure to listen to them in order. This is a close mix, based on the original recordings with a smattering of finished sections from the European concerts this spring. --------> http://www.acidplanet.com/artist.asp?AID=205424&T=4441 Enjoy all.
  6. Both Leonard Bernstein and Don Was were talking directly about Smile in my post...
  7. "Crap" huh? A few rather notable people seem to disagree with you. Paul McCartney It was Pet Sounds that blew me out of the water. I love the album so much. I've just bought my kids each a copy of it for their education in life ... I figure no one is educated musically 'til they've heard that album ... I love the orchestra, the arrangements ... it may be going overboard to say it's the classic of the century ... but to me, it certainly is a total, classic record that is unbeatable in many ways ... I've often played Pet Sounds and cried. I played it to John so much that it would be diffic
  8. When it comes to Brian Wilson, I can be so "in-depth" that it would turn everyone off. It was merely a simple question. We will get in touch about your friend, as most everyone around here knows each other. As you know, Clovis has a rich musical history of it's own. The first songs by Roy Orbison, Waylon Jennings Buddy Knox, Bobby Fuller and a host of others were recorded here. Of course Clovis is best known for being where almost all of Buddy Holly's songs were recorded, as well as Jimmy Gilmer and the Fireballs. In fact, the biggest selling single in the entire world in 1963 was record
  9. finally coming out later this year? No, it is not likely to be as it would have been in 66-67, but I am just thankful that Brian decided to finish it. Any other "Smile" :: addicts on here?
  10. All great responses, but I HIGHLY recommend the McCartney album Tug of War - along with Band on the Run and Ram. With Harrison, his last album Brainwashed is a 'must-have,' as is Cloud 9 and All Things Must Pass. Both Wilbury albums are excellent.
  11. The Beach Boys album "Endless Summer." - You can't go wrong. Best songs? Off the top of my head, "Hot Fun In the Summertime" Sly and the Family Stone, "All Summer Long" by The Beach Boys and "Boys of Summer" by Don Henley.
