SMiLE - Father of the Man Mix

Hello everyone,

I am sharing a new version of SMiLE made by my buddy Sr101 (or Mike if you prefer). He describes his mix below:

"SMiLE was created in 1966 and was to be released in January of 1967. It missed that date by 37 years and when Brian Wilson finally released "SMiLE" to the world, it destroyed many people's expectations. Many have tried to decide on how the album would have sounded back in 67' and so I am here to show my version of SMiLE, which I call the "Father Of The Man Mix". All the music used on the project is owned by the Beach Boys and has been remastered and re-imagined for your listening enjoyment. The biggest enhancement on the album is the full remastering of "Child is the Father of the Man", which normally has very bad quality. My favorite tracks are Surf's Up and Child is The Father of The Man."

Hollywood Bowling!

There is a new chapter in the Cork in the Ocean Productions by DJ Rock. This one is called The Beach Boys Hollywood Bowl-ing. Its from a live show on October 19th, 1963. You can see the tracklisting and download it below.

The Beach Boys were the last act of the day for "Y-Day", sponsored by the Hollywood YMCA and local station KFWB. They were only supposed to perform three songs, but decided on-the-spot to perform "Surfer Girl" as well. They also sang a short acapella tribute to KFWB.

The date for this concert was actually October 19th, 1963, not November 1st, as widely (and incorrectly) claimed. Ads for the show indicate the 10/19 date. The ads also include the opening acts: Jan and Dean, Bobby Vinton and Duane Eddy. Art Linkletter hosted.

02 Little Deuce Coupe

04 Be True To Your School

06 KFWB Theme
07 Outro (Closing Credits)
BONUS: 08 (Thank Him For) Our Love (Brian Wilson Demo, 1963)
