26) Hanszun's Recording Of Brian In Holland 1972

A very well respected BB authority claims that this recording is in fact Al Jardine. But the owner of the original tape has this to say about it:

"will you tell mikey, thanks and everybody else it was brian, it was on my own recorder. marilyn and i became friends during that time, my wife baked bread for both brian and dennis
and his family, and brian and marylin even came to my house in amsterdam, where i gave him some albums by the dutch group Supersister which he liked apparently."


"When Brian Wilson and the other Beach Boys ,recorded Holland in Holland, I lent Brian a small UHER reel to reel tape recorder, so he could have something for ideas at home...
when i got it back, when he left for the usa again, it still had some music and parts of a song on a tape."

Have fun with this one. It is made up of 3 files:
01) Daddy Dear / Suzie Cincinnati - Original untouched MP3
02) Daddy Dear / Suzie Cincinnati - Mono mix MP3 (much better sounding)
03) Daddy Dear - Labeled "Master" and completely a mystery

If anybody here can identify the person or persons responsible for #3, I will personally dance at your next funeral. Or even something better.

24) You Need A Mess Of Help To Stand Alone (Video)

This is from a 1972 appearance on The Old Grey Whistle Test. You may have seen it on YouTube but here it is in much better quality and it is complete. Somehow I accidentally uploaded it to Megaporn instead of Megaupload but I don't think that will cause any problems.

02) Sloop John B (3:05)
03) Darlin' (2:10)

If you have any idea which concert this is, please send me an e-mail or leave a comment.


19) 1972/02/25 Congrescentrum - Amsterdam, Netherlands

At a total time of 08:13, this is a very short two song set. According to Keith Badman's book, this was from a tv show where they performed two more songs. If this is the case, this performance was already posted on "Dutch Treat". However the versions on "Dutch Treat" sound terrible compared to the two songs here. Have you ever wanted a truly beautiful sounding stereo soundboard of a live "Surf's Up"? Look no further.

01) Sloop John B (3:14)
02) Surf's Up (4:59)


Let me know what you think and if anybody finds out more detailed information about this, please let me know!

18) Wall Street

Okay, I was feeling a little bad about throwing this one out but screw it. This is a masterpiece that everybody should hear. It's a Van Dyke Parks composition written on September 11th, 2002 about the date one year earlier. It is simply incredible. If you still have dry eyes after hearing this one, move on to Anvil or Judas Priest.

I e-mailed Van Dyke about releasing this song and although he did get back to me it seemed liked he scrapped the whole idea of a new studio album. If he happens to check out this blog and does not like it being here I will pull it immediately. But it has to be heard. I cannot hold this to my own without sharing with the rest of the class.


I don't feel like laughin' now I could use a laugh and how
I could use a telephone All alone Me and my old radio
Let's forget the news all right We won't get the blues tonight
Just gotta get together Tell that so and so
Shankin' the Big Apple tree Barkin' for a bite
You see sun is up on New York town Honkin' round run down my Battery
Drop me off at Walk Don't Walk It's about another block
And it's been lovely here on Wall Street

I can see nothin' but ash in the air Confetti all colored with blood
The jewel-encrusted mud-flattened Hudson
She's beaten and battered and buttressed and broke
Dining on dregs, gone begging, no joking
And in the confetti is human desire, love-letters lost in space, now smoking
The mouth of the river yawning south to the sea

In this cloud of disarray Floats a falling man in grey
Upside down and holding hands with his mate Why wait for speculation?
Like two stones we gravitate There's no time to hesitate
Just time to say I love you Say I love you Wall Street

Two flaming birds on fire They kiss their lives good-bye
Whereon the concrete street they meet in dying Without a trace of our embrace
You can't place my face though you are trying
'Til dust will stop our labored love We must drop all fear now of flying
A heart-beat from The Hudson down to the sea

17) Country Love

OMFG, I couldn't resist sharing this travesty. Funny because I have never been able to sit through the entire thing without...well...shutting the damn thing off. I am neither a fan of late 70's country music or Mike Love's nasal vocals so it is just a really bad affair for me. I will be returning to more quality material next.



16) March 14th, 1978 - Perth

The famous concert where Carl (and probably Brian & Dennis) is totally wasted on alcohol and/or heroin. Sound is very good audience. De masajes por favor mi nalgas. Mexico invades the Salvation Army! Turnips! Buttocks!

INFO here and here

Re-uploaded on March 22, 2010 HERE.

15) March 3rd, 1978 - Melbourne

This was professionally recorded by a film crew and there are dvd's making the round.

INFO about the DVD

Re-uploaded on 2010/03/14 HERE!

14) Oude-Ahoy Hall, Rotterdam, Holland May 13th, 1972

Here's a nice quick one. There are only 4 songs but they are very rare songs:

01) Here She Comes (6:29)
02) Wild Honey (5:09)
03) I've Got A Friend (5:26)
04) You Need A Mess Of Help To Stand Alone (4:31)

Total Time 21:35

11) Thank God For Wonderful

In 2004, I got very bored with everybody's SMiLE mixes so I decided to do my own mix of post-SMiLE music. It took me about five days mostly using Adobe Audition and Sonic Sound Forge. I just rediscovered it a couple of days ago and finally decided to share it. This is FLAC so it's kind of big but if I get enough requests I might make an MP3 version of it.

01) Wonderful (2:21)
02) Wind Chimes (4:35)
03) Vegetables (2:20)
04) She's Goin' Bald (2:35)

PART 4 (Tracks 19-24)


10) 1972/03/?? NYSU or St. John's University?

This has been available for a long time noted as being St. John's University in Jamaica, NY dated 1972/03/08. However in Keith Badman's book, their tour didn't start until March 16th in Albany, NY. The set list for that show perfectly matches the contents of this recording so I have been using that date and venue since. To make it more confusing, read this. Incidentally, Badman's book has them taking the day off on the 25th and never setting foot in St. John's University. Who do we believe?

Anyway, fantastic performance and very decent audience recording from that era. During "Wonderbill" Carl stops the performance to tell off some people who were fighting in the audience and threatens to stop the show (Mike talks some shit too!).

01) Wouldn't It Be Nice
02) Long Promised Road
03) Sloop John B
04) Take A Load Off Your Feet
05) Cool Cool Water

15) God Only Knows
16) Help Me Rhonda
17) Student Demonstration Time
18) Good Vibrations
19) California Girls
20) Surfer Girl
21) I Get Around

Interesting to also note that this line-up still has Bruce but also has Blondie and Ricky.

09) 1972/08/23 Boston Commons

This show is legendary. Backed with an orchestra on the 2nd set, this may be the only live rendition of Dennis Wilson's "Cuddle Up" that I am familiar with.

Some positives:
- The band is in the peak of their live power with their greatest line-up ever!
- Many songs that were later dropped from their live set!

Some negatives:
- Audience recording, although not too bad for the era but the taper's batteries ran out during the second set (during "Cuddle Up") so the speed starts getting sort of "whacked".
- The audience is totally unappreciative and disrespectful to the point of constantly heckling the band. Very depressing.

Yet, I love this document. This is history and is mostly fun to listen to. There is no evidence to support that this show was ever recorded professionally.

Some info HERE and HERE.

06) Let's Take A Trip Down Hawthorne Blvd

I've been looking for my old BB concerts and I found this oddity (unfortunately I only have it in MP3 format). This was the second concert recorded in Hawaii on August 26th, 1967. The concert from the day before (25th) is much more common.

04) Dutch Treat

No info from Bootlegzone on this one, I got it from a bit torrent site sometime last summer or something like that. More soundboard and more FLAC.

02) SMiLE Era - 1988 Mark Linett Rough Mixes Compilation

This is an essential SMiLE compilation by Mark Linett. And here it is in glorious "lossless" FLAC format. Enjoy. Next up? How about some obscure 70's concerts?

Info and scans:


01) Landlocked / Adult Child

First post is one of the first I ever owned, the fabulous "Landlocked / Adult Child" Pegboy release from 1997. Want more info about it? Check here:

This one is "lossy" (256 kbps) but I will post others in "lossless" as well.

Next up: "SMiLE Era - 1988 Mark Linett Rough Mixes Compilation" in lossless FLAC format.
