    The Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Celebration - Tour, New Album, and General Discussion Thread

    Like This Thread!



    The Beach Boys, one of the world’s most legendary and influential bands, have reunited for a global 50th Anniversary Tour. Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, and David Marks will tour together for the first time in more than two decades.

    The Beach Boys have recorded new songs for the as-yet-untitled album to be released in 2012. It will be the first to feature all of the band’s surviving original members in decades and is being produced by Brian Wilson and executive produced by Mike Love.

    The Beach Boys and Capitol/EMI have also teamed up for a 50th Anniversary campaign spotlighting the band’s entire catalog, with several new commemorative releases planned for 2012, including a new hits collection and a career-spanning box set.

    ALBUM TALKBACK THREADS:
    (most of the original albums by The Beach Boys have been reissued in a "two for one" single disc CD package. I will post 2 album talkback threads each week through now to the end of the summer.)

    Surfin' Safari / Surfin' USA
    Surfer Girl / Shut Down, Volume 2
    Little Deuce Coupe / All Summer Long
    The Beach Boys' Christmas Album
    The Beach Boys Concert / Live In London (*Live In London also released as Beach Boys '69)
    Today! / Summer Days (and Summer Nights!!)
    Beach Boys' Party / Stack-o-Tracks
    Pet Sounds
    Smile (The Smile Sessions)
    Smiley Smile / Wild Honey
    Friends / 20/20
    Sunflower / Surf's Up
    Carl and the Passions "So Tough" / Holland (*this reissue is a 2 CD package)
    15 Big Ones / Love You
    The MIU Album / LA (Light Album) (*apparently this reissue disc is out of print.)
    Keepin' The Summer Alive / The Beach Boys
    Still Crusin
    Summer In Paradise
    That's Why God Made The Radio (NEW ALBUM JUNE 5TH 2012)

    MY SUGGESTED TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION (knock yourself out by coming up with more):
    1. Are you attending a concert this summer?
    2. What are your thoughts on the new album? Do you have high or low expectations?
    3. We finally got The Smile Sessions released in an official format last November, is there any other unreleased Beach Boys material you'd like to see get released?

    So they'll be around my neck of the woods on May 15th. I'm not a fan, but I still think it's pretty cool.

    the wal-mart 'zine pack is more of a booklet about the size of a dvd case. if you're going to pick it up in a store, it will be with the other cds on the new releases/current releases display rack. it was kind of "hiding" for me since i expected it to be the size of a magazine and stand out better.

    I'm not super crazy about their new single. But it is better than a lot of what they've put out over the last few decades.

    They were good on Fallon. The interview with Love and Wilson went as well as it could have gone. I loved that they played out with Wouldn't It Be Nice. That was on the first mix tape Brian made for me, back when mix tapes were still a thing.

    i thought it was simply ok after first hearing it. i'm sure the song will grow on me, but i get the feeling there might be a song on the album i'll feel would have been a better choice for a single. it was most likely picked because it's a nostalgic song. i have really high hopes for the new album because brian wilson's that lucky old sun solo album was his best of brand new original material.

    It's much better live.

    Good show. Brian Wilson sang Sail On, Sailor, which I had heard he usually doesn't like to do (but sometimes does on his solo tours). He also played the bass (or at least held the bass guitar) during the encore performance.

    the group will release 2 new greatest hits packages (single disc and a double disc) and reissue remastered 12 classic albums in stereo and mono:
    The Beach Boys’ 50th Anniversary Tour recently concluded its North American run and is now underway in Europe, and the legendary band is pleased to announce plans for the CD and digital release of two new commemorative hits collections by Capitol/EMI on September 24th outside of North America and on October 9th in North America. 12 remastered Beach Boys studio albums will also be released by Capitol/EMI on September 24th outside of North America and on September 25th in North America. The Beach Boys’ new 50th Anniversary Greatest Hits collection features 20 of the band’s most popular songs, including “California Girls,” “Good Vibrations,” “Surfin’ U.S.A.,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “God Only Knows,” “Kokomo,” their latest single “That’s Why God Made The Radio,” and many more.

    A deluxe, career-spanning 2CD box and digital collection titled Greatest Hits: 50 Big Ones will also be released, featuring 50 Beach Boys favorites, including two songs from the band’s new album — the title track “That’s Why God Made The Radio” and a new single version of “Isn’t It Time,” which will be serviced to radio in September. The 2CD lift-top box package also includes an expanded booklet with newly written liner notes by Rolling Stone contributing editor David Wild and seven postcards.

    The 12 Beach Boys studio albums have been digitally remastered by Mark Linett and will be released on CD and digitally, most featuring mono and stereo mixes. The albums are: Surfin’ U.S.A.; Surfer Girl; Little Deuce Coupe; Shut Down, Volume 2; All Summer Long; The Beach Boys Today!; Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!); Beach Boys Party!; Pet Sounds; Smiley Smile; Sunflower (stereo mix only); and Surf’s Up (stereo mix only). These releases mark the stereo debut of Smiley Smile and Beach Boys Party!, while The Beach Boys Today! and Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!) are being released in stereo for the first time in their entirety. The new releases include the first-ever stereo mixes of several key Beach Boys classics, including “Good Vibrations,” “Help Me, Rhonda,” “I Get Around,” and “409,” among others.
    via thebeachboys.com

    single disc greatest hits track listing and art:
    http://www.amazon.com/Greatest-Hits-...+boys+greatest

    double disc greatest hits track listing and art:
    http://www.amazon.com/Greatest-Hits-...ref=pd_sim_m_2

    the double disc release is a nice selection and a great introduction, but it's still not enough. there are at least 10-20 additional songs that i consider noteworthy including on a 2 disc compilation. not to mention that that the track listing is completely out of order and random. i still dont get why lots of compilations "randomize" their track listing. just put the songs in release order.

    the album reissues look like it might be something similar to the beatles capitol albums box sets (cds in mini record sleeves, album in both mono and stereo on one disc). would it have killed them if they put the miu and la light album two for one disc back in print? maybe these 12 individual album releases are the first wave and we'll get the rest of the beach boys albums in this same format. i guess i'll get the out of print cd then.

    i also saw this beach boys dvd/blu-ray, but no press release article:
    http://www.amazon.com/Doin-Again-Blu...ref=pd_sim_m_3

    last but not least, here's a noteworty item from the above press release:
    A career-spanning Beach Boys 50th Anniversary box set is planned for release later this year by Capitol/EMI. Details about the special commemorative release will be announced soon.
    at first i assumed/thought that this would be a rarities boxset, but now i have reason to believe this will simply be a box with all the albums (similar to the beatles stereo albums box set and the pink floyd discovery box). if this box is all the albums pacakged together in one set, i'm gonna have a hard time justifying a double dip. all the two for one cds were first released in the early 90s and reissued again in 2001. i dont think there was that much SIGNIFICANT improvements to music remastering from 2001 to now. i only need the one out of print, and the very last two for one cds and i'll have all the albums. this box is gonna have to blow me away with with the presentation, bonus goodies, and price before i seriously consider double dipping.

    additional info for the dvd/blu-ray including a trailer:
    http://lamusicblog.com/2012/08/news/...gain-out-0828/

    The hour-long DVD includes exclusive 2012 interviews with The Beach Boys, live performances from the band’s 2012 world tour, never-before-seen footage from the 1966 “Good Vibrations” recording sessions, moving tributes to founding members Carl and Dennis Wilson, and behind-the-scenes footage from the recording sessions for That’s Why God Made The Radio. Basically anything a Beach Boys fan could want, so if you’re looking for an excuse to stay inside with the AC cranked, pick up a copy of the DVD when it’s released later this month, pop it in the ol’ DVD player, and let the Beach Boys bring the summer vibes to you.
    only an hour long sounds a little unimpressive. the concept of this dvd sounds great, but i'd rather have an entire 50th anniversary show and not a few songs.

    mike love (along with bruce johnston) to continue on with their beach boys group (that doesnt include brian wilson, al jardine and david marks) after the current tour concludes:
    http://music.yahoo.com/blogs/stop-th...173511608.html

    the "official" petition to keep the current group together:
    http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/t...david-to-stay/

    i honestly think no one should be surprised this happenend. it was a miracle that we got this 50th anniversary tour and album to begin with, and now it looks like things are going back to the way they were before this year's reunion. i knew this tour and album was going to be a once in my lifetime chance to see the whole band together and i'm certainly glad i took it and had an experience that i know not many shared.

    i'm also being positive regarding this situation because all bands go on "breaks" after tours. maybe mike love wants to continue playing shows in the upcoming months and knows the other members want a break. although, if that was the case, i dont see that being a big deal to flat out say that. i guess we'll find out and go from here.

    Off-topic but sort of funny: the other day I woke up to a text from a friend that just said: "Mike Love from the Beach Boys is a giant d-bag."

    He really doesn't like the Beach Boys music, not even Pet Sounds or Smile.
