Nobies, I think Smiley Smile got the reputation it did for two reasons: 1. it was the replacement for SMiLE and therefore 2. it was the follow-up to Pet Sounds. Otherwise, it's an enjoyable album.

Garrett, that Pacific Ocean Blue reissue is amazing, I bought the digipack version the booklet is packed

Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys - SMiLE
The 3971 Edit
by Tygerbug

314.82 MB FLAC

This edit attempts to combine the 1967 (ish) and 2004 recordings of Brian Wilson's
SMiLE into one complete piece.

1967 + 2004 = 3971.

Do you like both the original Beach Boys SMiLE recordings and Brian's 2004
performance? Do you often find yourself, when listening to one of them, wishing you
were listening to the other, just to hear a bit of music or lyric you're missing?

The Beach Boys recordings have a quality that the 2004 performance can't touch.
However, the 2004 album contains lyrics and music that don't exist in any 60s form,
and shapes the SMiLE album into a surprisingly coherent whole.

A professional release couldn't merge the two; that's musical sacrilege.

But for the purposes of this edit, that's exactly what I've done - switch back and
forth from 60s recordings to 2004 ones within the same track, so that nearly every
piece of music or lyric you might want to hear is there.

And it's nearly all in stereo!

I tried something very unusual with the "Water" section - Recorded as I Love to Say
Da Da, Cool Cool Water, and In Blue Hawaii. I extended this section to quite a
length, deciding to use all three songs, plus the unrelated song "Little Pad" from
the Smiley Smile album. So this is essentially In Blue Hawaii from the 2004 album,
with sections of Cool Cool Water and Little Pad interspersed.

If you think that's dumb, the extensions are their own track and can be removed to
leave just In Blue Hawaii.

Also, the bonus track "He Gives Speeches" is now combined with Smiley Smile's
"She's Goin' Bald" as one track.

Apart from that, all of the material is from the 2011 Smile sessions boxset or the
2004 Brian Wilson Smile album.

However, I used other people's fanedits for many of the tracks. Soniclovenoize's
stereo version of SMiLE was used for many of the 60s tracks, notably his version
of Good Vibrations with the original lyrics.

Bruiteur's versions of Barnyard and I'm in Great Shape were used, which cleans up
the piano demos for a much clearer vocal - although Barnyard is the stereo take on
that by another fan. I also used Bruiteur's "Wonderful," which marries the 60s
vocal to the 2004 instruments.

I believe I used adam78's mono edits in places as well. Not sure though, as I tried
to avoid mono.

"You're Welcome," "He Gives Speeches" and a few later Beach Boys tracks are thrown
on as bonuses.

Enjoy!

Brian/Beck tour is, as expected, another joke. At least Brian's half is. Lots of Foskett and those douchebags from the Wondermints, very little Al or David. Also why not have Blondie just join the band? He can obviously still sing well and shred on the guitar. It might lend the whole thing a little bit more authenticity. Oh well. I get the feeling that this whole thing, much like the 2012 reunion, didn't have much thought put into it and was cooked up by outside forces.

I checked out some videos of the Hollywood show and read some sentiments from people who went. Not impressed. Brian's off key, Foskett's off key and too loud, and you can't even hear David. Sail On Sailor pisses me off the most. Blondie's singing great and completely ripping it up on guitar, Al and David are both playing too, and yet there's 3 other dude's from the Wondermints playing guitar. Song doesn't need 6 guitars.

I saw the reunion show at Bonnaroo last year and even though I enjoyed myself, it pissed me off how poorly thought out the whole thing seemed.

The big problem with this shitshow is that their's no clear "boss" anymore, which ultimately seems to be the reason why Bruce and Mike hit the road. Brian's too whacked to really give a shit. David was never really in the picture that long to have any true say. The obvious choice is Al, as he's fully aware of the shittier parts of the band's legacy and has been their since the beginning, but he really doesn't seem into being in charge. Also I don't think Mike would go for it if there was to be another reunion.
