These were released around the same time as the sunshine tomorrow box set last year. I still didn’t even get the full collection. Oh god how am I supposed to survive the year with all of the Beatles, Dylan, and Beach Boys reissues?

I have been listening to the Friends one all day on repeat, but I'm saving 20/20 for tomorrow because I also want some time to listen to/remember John today.

The highlights of the compilation for me are the backing tracks (especially Little Bird and Transcendental Meditation) which are absolutely gorgeous on this, and the demo of Passing By with its original lyrics gives that song a whole new but sadder meaning.ahdn_george_05I will say I am disappointed they didn't remix the finished product like they did with Wild Honey, nor include any live tracks from the Maharishi Tour, but I'm hoping they might follow this up with the latter soon like they did with the Lei'd in Hawaii tracks last year.

The follow up double set last year was where the real treasures were. I too am hoping they follow up with a Live collection and Studio collection, released in a more complete and more organized format.

Ah, great! paul-mccartney-thumb_gifTa, @The Hole Got Fixed!

Now that's figured out, who'd be interested in joining me in forming a Beach Boys friendly rivalry group against Beatlebug's Bowie takeover of the forum? ahdn_john_08_gif

I'm in! Though I'd probably need to get some more Beach Boys as I only have the Unsurpassed Masters bootleg... a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Only one of the big '60s groups I've never totally connected with, at least not enough to go all in...

You definitely need to change that ahdn_john_08_gifI think most fans would agree that Pet Sounds is their best album, so I would start there. It was inspired heavily by Rubber Soul and in turn inspired Sgt Pepper 's a lot, so I think you'll find a lot that you enjoy. It's a similar mood to Revolver tracks like Here There And Everywhere and For No One

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

Listen to the Today! Sessions from UM and hear the way Brian builds Please Let Me Wonder. Its a great listening experience that allows to you get a whole new feel for the Beach Boys music. As I know you’re a big fan of sessions, the Beach Boys are an absolute goldmine.
