I don't throw the word masterpiece around very often, but this song is a pop masterpiece.  If anybody ever had a question about Brian Wilson's genius, here you are.

This was an impressive piece of work. It's not one I play a lot but always nice to hear it come on the radio.   Hard not to feel cheery listening to it. .

It's one of those songs it's hard to think of a similar style hit record. Maybe Uncle Albert and Bohemian Rhapsody would be the closest. This one tops them though in my opinion.

"Good Vibrations" is generally regarded as the Beach Boys' greatest individual work. It was released as a single in October 1966; and it was the only song by the band reaching the highest chart position in both US (certified as a platinum record) and UK. The song was composed and produced by Brian Wilson; and words were contributed by Mike Love. The record was immediately acknowledged as a masterpiece by music critics; and as far as I know, it was the first multi-part hit. Indeed, it introduced a new conception of the pop song, being constructed from several fragments and including strange instrumentation and complex vocal arrangements. This was certainly an amazing prelude of the colorful sounds that were going to be heard the next year.

These posters were painted by Mr. Booth recently.  It was his last project...










His style didn't change since the 60s...












He'll be missed.

You and Gwyneth look great Kev! You seem taller than I thought you were.

When you're suspended upside down, the intervertebral discs are not compressed and you become taller.

He was a trip and pulled the wool over a lot of eyes.

RIP









The Beatles never got the 72-track tape deck he promised them.


May he rest in peace.

Although Martin did fight them some, he was smart enough to realize when the product was sh*t and told them so like with their first proposal of 'Please Please Me'.

Pretty good today here we are at 90 Mile beach

What's amazing is that the weather looks great and the beach gorgeous but there's no one in the background. Like you have it all to yourself (and the photographer).

True. I wonder if their success at getting him to listen to the originals was partly due to him not having a track record as a pop hit producer. If he'd had a string of successes perhaps he would have laid down the law more. Then trouble would have ensued.

Also the publishing arm of EMI was on the Beatles side pushing GM to release their originals.
