HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Dec. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — The founding members of The Beach Boys, one of the world’s most legendary bands in popular music history, will reunite for a global 50th Anniversary CELEBRATION in 2012. Beach Boys Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, and David Marks will come together for a new studio album and commemorative catalog releases with Capitol/EMI and a 50-date international tour to begin in April with a headlining performance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (“Jazz Fest”) as well as other exciting events to be announced.
We continue our exclusive coverage of the long-awaited release of the SMiLE Sessions from the Beach Boys with our interview with another co-producer of the set, Alan Boyd. He talks to us about how they decided which takes of songs to use for the “estimation” of the SMiLE LP on disc one, if it is ever possible to release a stereo mix of “Good Vibrations,” and which song he was the proudest of helping put together. He also describes what specific role he and co-producer Mark Linett had in helping piece together the SMiLE Sessions.
I haven’t heard the both versions, so they’re new for the box. Several versions of “VEGA-TABLES” will be included at the gorgeous limited box. This one is differ from the Brian’s in 2004, so this version might be for 45 single bonus. (or he & Mark Linett changed their interpretation.) - Kota.
As I expected at previous posts, the Beach Boys will be touring ‘without’ Brian Wilson. (at least this article says so.) Not only the article at musicfeeds says, the guardian and Q Magazine also say the same thing. It seems the Q magazine is the original source.
Never blame me that I was relieved hearing it, sorry. I can understand how people wanna see the reunion show though. It’s just my opinion, Brian should be a solo. But it’ll be great hearing the reunion version of “Do It Again” And hoping he’ll be a special guest at a couple of world tour shows. That would be perfect to me. - Kota.
