Cocaine Sessions And Some Other Things

Here are the infamous Cocaine Sessions with Brian and Dennis Wilson from 1981.

Tracklisting:
 1. Yeahhh
 2. Oh Lord
 3. City Blues
 4. Piano
 5. You've Been Part 1
 6. You've Been Part 2
 7. I Feel So Fine
 8. Heroes And Villains

 + an interview with Brian
 

These demos are worth owning for one reason, and one reason alone - Oh Lord. This song can best be explained by this quote from a fan site.

"Oh Lord, DW, Brian Wilson, ca.1982. Originally recorded in demo form during the infamous Brian/Dennis sessions at Village Recorders 81-82.(Stebbins p.208) After Dennis' death, Brian re-worked this track w/ Culture Club producer Steve Levine in July 1984 for possible inclusion on what would become "the Beach Boys" 1985.(Doe, liner notes: The Beach Boys). It did not make it to the final cut, and remains unreleased"

Really, this is an incredible song, and I love it to death. It still sends shivers down my spine when I hear that line "Make me sad, for everything, let me see, what there is to see." A criminally underrated Dennis Wilson song that was recorded and still remains unreleased.

Dutch Beach Boys Lost Songs

It's no secret. The Dutch Beach Boys Blog has changed to the Jan and Dean Blog. So all of their Beach Boys stuff has disappeared, so I'm going to make a good effort to try to post everything that was lost.

2 versions of the song In my room 1996 version with tammy wynette

i found this on the web. Its just fantastic. Here is what the fan made, enjoy it. Dont know how long its availible.

-------------------------------------------------------

As a fan of both country music and the Beach Boys, this duet with Tammy Wynette (which was supposed to go on "Stars & Stripes vol. 2") is truly a precious gem.There's been a released version, on the 1998 "Tammy Remembered" CD. But that version, while it featured Tammy's voice recorded in 1996, featured Brian alone on backing vocals. Still, it was already great......But that was before I bought the "Nashville Sounds" DVD, on which you can hear harmonies done by the Beach Boys, and not Brian alone! This version being even greater, I decided to record it from the DVD to make a mp3 of it. So that's what I did. There was a small problem with the intro, because the one on the DVD is "spoiled" by Brian, who talks about the song... So I took the intro from the "Tammy Remembered" version, and modified it a bit (because for some reason, the "Tammy Remembered" version had been sped-up, which caused a key change). I also had to do some editing with the end, so that it wouldn't sound "abrupt".

Love your downloads! But, I don't understand why you call this download the "Cocaine Sessions" It sounds like Brian just farting around.
Not much is known about this tape, featuring just Brian and Dennis at the piano and organ. Some refer to it as the "Hamburger Tapes", while some say it's actually the genuine "Cocaine Sessions". There's a disc called "The Cocaine Sessions" up at Cabinessence with a completely different track listing:

1. (Talking)
2. California Girls
3. "Let's Start Our Own Band"
4. My Solution
5. (Sounds of sexual intercourse)
6. Mike, Mike, Mike
7. Bonanza Theme
8. It's Just A Matter Of Time
9. I Don't Want To Die
10. Take My Breath Away
11. You Take My Breath Away
12. (Talking)

Hi there, I'm the guy who made the "In My Room (with Tammy Wynette)" mix. I'd like it to be removed from your blog, please.

Thanks in advance

Thanks so much for your help.

Fucking hell man, "Oh Lord" is simply stunning. I don't know if there are any tapes of Brian at home just sitting at his piano playing and singing as his kids and ex-wife say on the documentaries of him doing - rather than communicating through talking - wish those were in existence and posted somewhere. That's the vibe I get with this download. But damn, "Oh Lord" in particular really is SUCH a heartfelt performance, wow.

By the way, great blog, keep up the great work, love it, been downloading like a monkey on crack.
