Live at Michigan State 1966




A couple months ago I edited together several of the musical tracks with the talking between the songs from the Michigan State concerts on The Live Box and made my own "live album". What I basically did was took the second Michigan concert, severely cut back the talking parts (Mike Love is not as funny as he would like to think), then edited the leftover talking parts onto the ends of the musical tracks, I cut off the false start on You're So Good To Me, and I added in Wouldn't It Be Nice from the first Michigan concert (wasn't performed at the 2nd one), and whala! The Beach Boys Live at Michigan State 1966.

Spoiler Alert...

In a little over a week will mark the unveiling of ascrodin's SMiLE '08. Just for a teaser I'm posting the tracklisting. Heroes and Villains is 10 minutes long, The Elements is 15 minutes. I also made an 8 minute version of Good Vibrations. I "cooked up" a pretty crazy outro after the child is the father segment of Surf's Up, extending that song to about 8 minutes. For other songs, I used talking parts from the Psychedelic Reel, Vegetable Arguments, the Chicago Cab Driver, the Basketball Game, Bob Gordon's Real Trip, etc. Brian asks Denny for some hash joints and wonders whether the boys are feeling the acid yet all the while George falls into his French Horn during Surf's Up. During the tag to Heroes and Villains Mike asks for some sexual pleasure devices and Carl says to bring Mike a bag of money. Brian gets stuck in a mic. Van Dyke Parks and David Anderle order ice cream from a tinkling piano. I did something "wild" to pretty much every song. Its about 80 minutes of craziness, and in my opinion, sounds a million times better than my other SMiLE mix.

Just checking in...more stuff coming after the 26th

Hey hey hey, this isn't Fat Albert, its just little old me here at the blog. Happy belated New Year, hope Xmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, Ramandan, or any other holiday you blog visitors celebrate went well. Just checking in, seeing how the blog's been doing without me. I'm on a public internet connection right now and my laptop has limited battery power, so I'm going to wait until I'm back at college with reliable internet access to post any new downloads. Don't worry, it'll be worth the wait. I've made a new SMiLE mix, hopefully better sounding than my last one (sorry about all that reverb-I know its made my ears ring pretty bad). At any rate, it will be quite an interesting listen. Look forward to that, and a lot more good stuff, probably starting the last week of January. Then it will be back to regular updates again. I may start periodically posting more "cool band alerts" like I did with Camera Obscura. If any of the links are down I will fix them after I come back to the blog full time. Happy SMiLEing, folks!!
