Beach Boys: 1969-1971 Sessions release
« on: June 04, 2021, 05:16:55 PM »
I didn't know whether to post in my old thread or in that recent one about Dennis, but figured it made more sense just to start a new thread. The highly anticipated sessions release of their Sunflower-Surf's Up period has been highly anticipated for yonks. But it's finally on it's way!! (fuck yes)

As a taster, yesterday they dropped this sizzling early version of 'Big Sur' on Spotify and YouTube, a rendition so fucking lovely that it (well, partially) redeems Mike Love of being music's biggest berk!

I seem to be absolutely cursed with liking bands who refuse to release these kinds of boxset. I enjoy Pet Sounds and Smile, but otherwise never really got into the Beach Boys, but this is the kind of release I'd absolutely love to see from bands I love. Jealous of Beach Boys fans for the fascinating stuff incoming.

Maybe give Sunflower a try if you haven't purlieu. Hardly a duffer on it in my opinion, and it's a lovely, sun-drenched woozy little record

Love You I have a real soft spot for, too. Another "Brian's back" record, but one that actually works from start to finish. Is fun, and also rammed with absolute tunes

I was at my local record shop buying Sunflower on the day that it was released.  It was my first ever album purchase.  And in just a few weeks time I shall be able to re-experience the joy of that long-passed (but never forgotten) moment. 

You cannot even begin to imagine how much happiness this pending release is giving me.

if you buy Love You listen to it, it's great and all that but that Love Is A Woman tune, and the "pat her on her butt" - just skip, get something sharp and wreck the groove with that one on

WHat????

I LOVE that tune! Yer mental.

Oh hang on I think you've got 2 tunes mixed up there. The pat her on her butt tune is "I wanna pick you up" and I think is a very sweet and innocent song.

it's grand until pat her on her butt, what's he doing there!

He's rocking the baby to sleep and patting her gently in the process, as you do.

I'm delighted this box set is out but know from past experience that I'd only play it once, then maybe just do a highlights CD of six or seven bonus tracks that I'd want to keep playing.

I think the issue is when they say it I just see a big awful auld arse there, like a big auld dirty mans arse or something
