Smile - Millennium Edition

This version of smile was made in 2000 and has some of the most interesting arrangements of the usual smile songs. I especially like the extended Heroes and Villains, the foxtrot version of Wonderful with the Rock with me Henry ending and The powerful Elemental suite. This version has great dynamics and originality but also uses some clips with too much static without any effort to remove it, but thankfully this doesn't happen very often.

These are the liner notes to this album:


Our Prayer: Real stereo version and the last verse remixed with break out into laughter.

Heroes and Villains (The Barnyard Suite): This is not "Heroes and Villains". This track is new-salvage remix called "Heroes and Villains" suite made with lots of fragments. This stereo remixed version contains "I'm In Great Shape" demo verse. Constitution is different from ever make-up another suite.

Child is Father of the Man: This track contains a lot of pieces from "Child is father of The man" sessions. The first verse is the same as "Look". The second verse diverted to last verse of "Surf's Up". Break in as "Vega-Tables" tag, track move on last verse like a Jazz flavor (sic) sound.

Wonderful: Harpsichord version with "ma ma ma" chorus and "rock with me henry" verse. Ending part is smiley smile's laughing dialogue tag.

With Me Tonight: An acappella (sic) version is smiley smile sessions, but this track's end verse is never heard fast chorus on album version.

Do You Like Worms?: Real stereo version you never heard on other disc. Complete last mix with stereo sounds. And also this song is one part of "Heroes and Villains" suite.

The Old Master Painter: Real stereo version with "Barnyard part 2". This song might be included among "Heroes and Villains" suite, too.

Cabin Essence: This a long version with instrumental introduction. After "Grand coolle (sic) dam-Over the crow cries" verse, "Who run the iron horse" arrival again as ending verse.

Good Vibrations: Incredible Stereo sound! First Time On C.D.! Try to hear each channel. Maybe you can find secret of this miracle number.

Vega-Tables: Incredible arrival at first time on this C.D. Real stereo sound! Again try to hear each channel.

Wind Chimes: Beautiful marimba version with stereo sound.

The Elemental Suite: The "Elements" is still in mysteriousness. Maybe Brian construct with "Good Vibrations" " Vega-Tables" "Wind Chimes" "Look" "Holidays" "Mrs. O'leary's (sic) Cow" "I Love to say Da-da" "I wanna be around" "Friday Night" ... and other fragment from SMILE sessions. This is a puzzling suite made with lots of fragments that previously we heard.

Vega-tables reprise: Reprise with a incredible session track! This is take-2 of the session. Maybe this take is Brian's original idea for "SMILE". Because he filled up the track with a burst of laughter.

Surf's Up: Luckily you can hear heavenly sound in this version presented by Brian. This version contains four parts. The First verse is instrumental introduction as prelude for Brian's singing. Second one is incledible (sic) with Brian's lead vocal and perfect track. Third one is solo performance from "Inside Pop". Fourth one is as known as "Child is father of the man".

LOVE this Heroes & Villains arrangement, with the "Gee" part being a particular highlight.
