I'm listening to 'Carry Me Home' right now, and wondering why the hell didn't it make the MadeInCalifornia box-set?! Many bands would kill to even come up with something this beautiful and heartbreaking.

Carry Me Home -- The Beach Boys


The only reason I can think of is that The Beach Boys might have been a bit uncomfortable with a song by their deceased brother/cousin/friend that has lyrics like "I'm afraid to die / Please God, please God / Don't take my life".

I got the new box set yesterday ('Made in California') and it is really, really good. It's got lots of unreleased tracks, alternative versions, surprising live versions and amazing new stereo mixes for the "hardcore" fans, and it's an excellent, balanced career overview for the casual fans who want to dig a little further and can spare $100+. Highly recommended.

Yeah, he is... It's pretty funny, actually: Brian, Al and David were dismissed from the band that tours under the Beach Boys name (and now has just two Beach Boys), and this seems to be Brian's revenge: he's recording an album with no less than four Beach Boys on it. He could make it five by inviting Ricky Fataar as well.

Ricky seems pretty involved in touring with Bonnie Raitt now, I think.

All this good news keeps coming out so now I really can't wait for Brian's new album to be released. Whether it is going to be as great as The Lucky Old Sun was, I dunno. I really loved that album.

If he can do something similar with a theme and good rockers/ballads then having 4 Beach Boys singing it would be splendid. How many great songs has Brian given to Al down the years? Quite a few if I'm not mistaken. So I'll take a look when it's released.

I really like BW'88 but wish the Boys had been on that, Carl doing the lead to Night Time would have been something else...

I'd like Sweet Insanity to be properly released, along with Adult/Child, have you heard them, Joost?

I still have alot of BB's to discover...

Yeah, but unlike The Beatles, The Beach Boys never had this habit of everyone singing on his own compositions. Brian gave songs to everyone, Dennis sometimes gave his songs to Carl or Mike, Al sometimes gave songs to Mike... Usually the guy who's voice suited a song the best just got to sing it.

I'd like Sweet Insanity to be properly released, along with Adult/Child, have you heard them, Joost?
I have. But IMO, Sweet Insanity is just not that good and Adult/Child is a bit of a mess.

Kicking my heels a little bit until the BBC release comes out (three weeks tomorrow) so I've dug up the last record release I was really looking forward to.....SMiLE.....bought on its first day of release in Islington.
I'd forgotten how much I adore SMiLE!

One thing - the Wrecking Crew play a big part in the recordings, and they also played on a lot of the themes and incidental music of the cartoons of the era (I think - correct me if I'm wrong), and huge chucks of SMiLE sound like the kind of incidental music you'd get in the background of 'Top Cat', 'The Flintstones', 'The Jetsons', 'Yogi Bear' etc. etc.
Even the cover of SMiLE has a cartoon on its cover.

By the way, Music Club put out a great CD of all those cartoon themes called 'Tunes from the Toons'.....it is fantastic.

Joost (or others), what would you say is the most essential Beach Boys book besides 'Catch A Wave'?

I accept that it doesn't cover all bases but, despite my recent jaunts to the charity shop to clear space for a potential move (which included several Beach Boys biographies), there was absolutely no danger of 'Look! Listen! Vibrate! Smile!' by Domenic Priore going anywhere other than where I'm going.

Hey Ovi, I just saw this question from a year ago and I don't know why I didn't answer it. Is the question still relevant?

Hey, how about some Beach Boys news?

* Jack Rieley passed away last Friday. He was The Beach Boys' manager in the early 1970s, he co-wrote many of their songs in these years, he sang lead on the song 'A Day in the Life of a Tree' and he was the narrator on the 'Mt. Vernon and Fairway' EP.

* Brian's new album 'No Pier Pressure' was released this month. It features guest appearances by Kacey Musgraves, Zooey Deschanel & M. Ward (She & Him), Sebu Simonian (Capital Cities), Nate Ruess (Fun) and Beach Boys members Al Jardine, David Marks and Blondie Chaplin. Unfortionately, I have to say that it's one of my least favorite Brian Wilson albums. I still love 'That Lucky Old Sun' and 'That's Why God Made the Radio', so I expected much more from this.

* The Brian Wilson biopic 'Love & Mercy' premiered on the Toronto International Film Festival in 2014, but it will finally be in US cinemas on June 5, 2015. Reception so far is pretty positive. Trailer:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lioWzrpCtGQ

* The Carl Wilson biography 'Long Promised Road' is set to be released on September 29.

* 'I Am Brian Wilson', the second Brian Wilson autobiography, is set to be released on October 8. There already is a Brian Wilson autobiography from the 1990s called 'Wouldn't It Be Nice', but Brian has admitted that he didn't even read (let alone write) that one.

My track by track review of No Pier Pressure:

This Beautiful Day: Sounds a bit like 'Summer's Gone', the final song on the last Beach Boys album, and I guess it's fitting that Brian's first solo album after that one starts with a similar sounding song. Not one of Brian's most convincing vocals, but still a decent little album intro.

Runaway Dancer (w/ Sebu Simonian): Just painful. I hate it. Absolutely hate it. This just might be the very worst song that Brian ever had anything to do with in his life. I was in my teens in the 1990s and I absolutely despised all that electronic dance music that my peers were listening to. So it almost feels like betrayal to hear electronic beats and synths like those on a Brian Wilson album. Oh, and I also hate saxophones.

Whatever Happened (w/ Al Jardine & David Marks): Even after Al's solo album 'A Postcard From California' and the 2012 Beach Boys album 'That's Why God Made The Radio', it's still a thrill to hear a brand new song with more than one Beach Boy singing on it. This song does sound a bit like an outtake from Brian's 'Imagination' album, and that's not a good thing. A bit too plastic.

On The Island (w/ Zooey Deschanel & M. Ward of She & Him): Nice one. Very sunny, very mellow, a bit wacky (in a good way), reminds a bit of the very cool 1968 Beach Boys song 'Busy Doin' Nothing'. And I love Zooey's voice. Downside is that it sounds like a She & Him song with Brian guesting on backing vocals, rather than a Brian Wilson song.

Half Moon Bay (w/ Mark Isham): A somewhat unremarkable instrumental, although it does remind of the two instrumentals on 'Pet Sounds'. A bit too jazzy for my taste, but still pleasant enough.

Our Special Love (w/ Peter Hollens): An entirely a capella song with beat boxing. Yuck. Comes way too close to R&B (not the real rhtyhm & blues, but the slick modern kind) and whatever all those boy bands (Take That, Boyzone) were making in the 1990s and 2000s.

The Right Time (w/ Al Jardine & David Marks): Pleasant song, Al sounds great as always. The chorus sounds too much like 'Lay Down Burden', though. This is self-plagiarism, basically.

Guess You Had To Be There (w/ Kacey Musgraves): So far, this is hands down my favorite song on the album. Some really gorgeous melodies here. Nice, laid back arrangement. I like it a lot.

Tell Me Why (w/ Al Jardine): No, this is not the Beatles song. Fairly mediocre and a bit too sappy. I do love that Al is on so many songs on this album.

Sail Away (w/ Blondie Chaplin and Al Jardine): This is a fun song. I like the subtle Sloop John B melodies. Blondie's voice aged really well. He sounds cool. Especially with Blondie's vocal, this would've been a great song for 'That's Why God...'.

One Kind Of Love:  Pretty good one, probably the second best song on the album. Some beautiful things going on in the string and brass arrangement.

Saturday Night (w/ Nate Ruess): I don't mind that this album has so many guest singers. But since this is a Brian Wilson album, it doesn't make sense that he gives someone else the lead vocal on almost an entire song. So again, this just sounds like Brian guesting on someone else's song. Having said that, I do like Nate Ruess's voice and this song is really catchy.

The Last Song: Lana Del Rey was supposed to sing on this, but she never finished her vocals. Someone on a Beach Boys forum wrote that this is "The bastard love child of Bruce Johnston and Dennis Wilson at their most sappy. This tries to be another Summer's Gone but fails to do so," and I think that's a pretty good description.

BTW: There's also a "deluxe edition" with 3 extra songs (including a new version of the 1965 Beach Boys song 'Summer Means New Love', this time with vocals), and a Target exclusive version with 5 extra songs (the "deluxe edition" bonus tracks plus a 1975 demo of 'In The Back of My Mind' and a new version of the 1988 Brian Wilson track 'Love and Mercy').
