ehhhh. Stephen Desper is an old man, I don't think his memory is quite as good as the print on the album itself.

"1988 (as Spring)
Rhino 75762 (CD) Spring Produced By Brian Wilson (16 tracks, including all listed above under 1971-1973, and two bonus tracks : It's Like Heaven, Had To Phone Ya)"

^ for example, that print from the same thread.

At best it was Desper and Brian, remember Stephen Desper was the house producer, of course he had a big part in the album.

I remember AGD posting a quote saying that Mr Desper said it was 5% of Brians production and Marilyn said "no way, it was atleast 25%" (or something to that effect.

I think David Leaf exaggerates Brian's contribution to this album, it fits his overall thesis that he had the talent within him and the drive to create new music but just not for the Beach Boys

According to Peter Ames Carlin, Brian did produce a good chunk of it, and the rest was produced by David Sandler and Steve Desper.

wow, they really ruin this whole world, i'm all for a 're-imagining' of the original, but the whole albums pretty undynamic,pity 'cos the vocals are sweet.

I bought the original UK release (American Spring By American Spring) and fell in love with it. The vinyl was worn out by the time I eventually 'lost' it in the mid 70's. I began trying to find a replacement around 12 years ago... you cannot imagine how happy I am to hear it again AND with bonus tracks too! I had almost given up hope... thank you so very very much. Went to see BJ's Beach Boys UK tour a year or two back - was an incredible memory jerker!
