Hiatus

Hello everyone,
I'm going to be without internet access for the next 6 weeks, so the blog is now officially on hiatus. If anything gets deleted, I'll reupload it when I get internet back. Enjoy what's on the blog now, and keep checking out Warnakey's blog, Triffids blog, Linear Zap, Lightman's blog, Dutch Beach Boys blog, Unbending never ending tablets of time, and any other Beach Boys blogs I've neglected to mention. I'll be back around the last week of January with more stuff. Any reuploads, requests, responses to comments, etc., will be handled when I come back. Enjoy the holiday everybody. Take care.

Aloha!

Maholo everybody! Its the Beach Boys, live from Hawaii!!!! Its none other then Aloha From Hawaii and Hollywood!, featuring the legendary Lei'd in Hawaii concert, plus overdubs and rehearsals from Wally Heider Studios in Los Angeles. Enjoy this concert!

If I don't get around (no pun intended) to posting tomorrow or Saturday, then this will be my last post for about 6 weeks or so. Sorry folks, but I'm going home from college for winter break and will most likely not have any internet access.:( Don't worry, though. I'll be back the last week of January. If I do happen to get online between now and the end of January, I will try to post something relevant to the Beach Boys fans, even if its not any music. Enjoy the Hawaii concert and have a happy holiday, whichever one you celebrate.

Cool Band Alert!




















No, its not the Beach Boys (even though the Beach Boys are pretty cool). If you like the Beach Boys there may be a slight chance you'd like these guys. I'm talking about a band called Camera Obscura. They are a Scottish indie pop band, from Glasgow I believe. I just discovered them very recently. They are grrrrreat. The lead singer, Tracyanne Campbell, has a beautiful voice, and is not that bad lookin', either. Some of their songs sound like they could come straight off of Summer Days (and Summer Nights!!!).

EDIT: I was wrong on the Summer Days comparison. Camera Obscura's songs are a little too sad for Summer Days. They are more like Pet Sounds meets Belle and Sebastian meets a female Morrissey.

Here's a couple of songs by them that I like:

Camera Obscura-If Looks Could Kill

Camera Obscura-Books Written For Girls
http://massmirror.com/6db8771b9eb8cf0c0abdcaff23ec43cb.html

And lastly, here's a video for their song "Let's Get Out of This Country":

Hope you like this band as much as I do.
More Beach Boys stuff coming up within the next couple of days. I'm going home from college for winter break and will have very limited or most likely absolutely no access to the internet. That means this blog is going to be dormant for about 6 weeks starting this weekend. Don't worry, though. I'll be back in late January with more Beach Boys goodies. Warnakey, Triffids, Linear-Zap, Dutch Beach Boys, and Lightman will probably keep you guys plenty of company during my absence. Well, anyway, I hope you like Camera Obscura.

Dennis Wilson-Bambu


Hello again. Looks like those a-holes over at Mediafire have taken down Adult Child and the Smiley Smile Sessions (UM 18). I'll have to reupload those. In the meantime, here's Dennis Wilson's unreleased 2nd album Bambu. I prefer Pacific Ocean Blue to this, but I felt like posting Bambu just because it's more "rare-er"(lol) than POB (yes, grammar police, I said "more rare-er").

The Beach Boys and the Grateful Dead

Hey everybody! Until I upload the next big thing, here's 3 songs from the Beach Boys' legendary 1971 Fillmore East show with the Grateful Dead. The Beach Boys appeared on 6 songs total during that show, but I only have these three. I hope you enjoy them. And as Bob Dylan said during that very show, "these guys are fucking great!"

I'm trying out a new file server. Hopefully this one works out. I'm going to try that divshare site when I do my next post. This one is hosted by Savefile.

More stuff coming soon!

Don't worry folks, I'll have some more Beach Boys stuff up here soon. Just give me a couple of days and I'll have some more goodies for "y'all" ("y'all" is part of the dialect used in the southeastern United States, roughly translated into standard English, it means, "you all" ....lol :)).

I think I'm going to go to the beach and go surfing after I finish this post...wait, I'm in the northeast US, there's no ocean, its 40 degrees (F) outside, and the lake near me doesn't get waves that are big enough for surfing.

More music coming sometime this week!

PS, and if you're bored, check out the message board (that "bored..board" thing was unintentional)

Enjoy!

No More Posts This Week

Hello again folks, starting either tomorrow or Wednesday I will be leaving college to go back home for Thanksgiving break (gorging myself with turkey in remembrance of the slaughter and exploitation of Native Americans by conservative white religious zealots who got kicked out of England), and will not have access to the internet, therefore, no more new posts after tomorrow or Wednesday. Don't worry, I will be back next Sunday or Monday with some more Beach Boys stuff. I may make a 60s rarities "mix" and one with stuff from the 80s/90s/00s pretty much in the same vein as the 70s rarities "mix". I'll think of something to put up here as one last post before Thanksgiving and after having a hopefully pleasant holiday, will be back with more stuff next week.


See ya folks later.

Adult Child

Hey everybody,
I got a new post up in here. Its none other than Brian Wilson's unreleased follow-up to "Love You", "Adult Child". Personally, I like this one better than "Love You", if only because the lyrics are not so child-like and demented. The only weak tracks here are "Hey Little Tomboy" and "On Broadway". This was recorded in 1977-78 after "Love You" was finished but before it got released. This album was rejected by Warner Brothers, but I wish it would've been released in '78 instead of the MIU Album. "H.E.L.P. Is On The Way", "It's Over Now", "Games Two Can Play", and "Still I Dream of It" were eventually released on the 1993 Good Vibrations Box Set, "Hey Little Tomboy" was recycled for the MIU Album, and "Shortenin' Bread" came out on 1979's L.A. (Light Album).

EDIT: 12/10/07 12:35 AM-Adult Child has been reuploaded!

My SMiLE Mix

This is a SMiLE mix I made about a year ago. It's not the greatest sounding one in the world, for example, in some places it skips between mono and stereo, and I think I added too much reverb to a lot of the songs. But it is pretty comprehensive, incorporating almost every major song recorded during the SMiLE sessions. Some highlights include 10 minute versions of "Heroes and Villains" and "Vega-Tables".
A question to ponder: Has anyone ever noticed how "All Day" and "Aren't You Glad" from Wild Honey sound almost alike?

Get it here:

Message board

I just created a message board to go along with the site. It is in no way intended to compete with SmileySmile.net or BBB, just a place for BB fans to get together and talk..er, post about stuff. Unlike SmileySmile, you're allowed to talk about bootlegs here. My only rules are:

1. Don't "hate on" other board members. We can all have intelligent discussions without resorting to name calling.

2. No racism, sexism, or any other "idiotness" of that sort. Non-hateful idiot-ness is OK, though.

3. Enjoy the board!!!!

You can even post without having to register. I might switch to a different board (probably EZboard) if this one has any kinks in it.

The board:

Happy Posting!!!

Some Rarities from the 70s

Alrighty then, folks,

I've decided to gather up as many good 70s Beach Boys outtakes that could fit into a zip file without being too big for the file site. I've taken stuff from Landlocked, Adult Child, Get The Boot, Outtakes from Triffids Blog,and a couple live songs from the Big Sur Folk Festival. Hopefully you guys'll like it. I LOVE it.

EDIT: Whoops, almost forgot, the "album" cover. Just a little something I made when I was bored a couple of weeks ago.

The Smiley Smile Sessions


EDIT: I've decided I'm not going to re-upload this one unless I get a lot of requests for it. Sorry, but I've re-upped this a couple of times already, but it keeps getting taken down. I really don't have the patience to keep re-uploading stuff from older posts. I am going to focus more on new posts. I repeat, I am only going to re-up this if there is popular demand.


Howdy folks,
We all know that every die hard Beach Boys/Brian Wilson fan wants to get their hands on as much of the original SMiLE sessions that they are able to grab, but what about SMiLE's often overlooked sibling, Smiley Smile? Do Beach Boys fans ever clamor to hear the Smiley Smile sessions? If there is anyone who ever did want to hear them, this is the perfect opportunity. Presented in STEREO, these are the Smiley Smile Sessions, not nearly as glorious as Pet Sounds or SMiLE, but still quite interesting on its own merits:

EDIT: 11/27/07 1:00 PM EST To answer a person who left a comment on this post a while back, this is indeed Unsurpassed Masters Volume 18.
Some bad news, those bastards at Mediafire have deleted the Smiley Smile sessions AGAIN!!! Give me a couple of days and I will reupload it to a new site. I think I'm going to follow in Warnakey's footsteps and use Divshare. Thanks for the patience. Have a wonderful day.

EDIT: 11/17/07 5:12 PM EST-the Smiley Smile Sessions have been reuploaded!!! Get them here:
I will re-upload this to a new server soon.

EDIT: 11/17/07 4:50 PM EST-Good news, everybody! I'm reuploading the Smiley Smile Sessions right now!

EDIT: 11/12/07 9:30 PM EST For some reason, this isn't on mediafire anymore. I'll reupload this and post up the new link sometime tonight or tomorrow. Thanks.

Purple Chick SMiLE

Alrighty then, folks, I've decided to put up Purple Chick's SMiLE as the first ever download from this blog. Seems appropriate since this blog is named after a SMiLE track. Now this is no ordinary SMiLE comp. This is the original Beach Boys 66/67 recordings edited together and sequenced to sound like Brian Wilson's 2004 SMiLE. In fact, some of the gaps left over after all the Beach Boys recordings were edited together and filled in with short little sections from Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE. All the songs are presented in fabulous stereo.

For more info check out this article from Ear Candy Magazine:
http://www.earcandymag.com/purplechicksmile-2005.htm
Unfortunately, I don't have the "bonus tracks", but the rest of this great SMiLE mix is available for all you fine Beach Boys fans.

Welcome

Welcome, everybody! This blog is going to focus mainly on the Beach Boys and Brian Wilson. Be on the lookout for some downloads coming this way soon. I'm thinking about starting off with either Purple Chick SMiLE or the Smiley Smile sessions. Whichever one I decide to put up first, you can bet it'll be good. Keep on SMiLEing!
