One of their most overlooked/underrated hits, I think. (Mike Love's beard, though - eeuugh.)

The Beach Boys...........none finer..... but my heart sinks when I hear they're reforming for a 50th anniversary gig. I guess they're entitled to it but surely there comes a time to leave the stage. Oh ! but then I see what is (not) replacing them and, well, maybe I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Given the saga of animosity surrounding them, it'll be a grim soap opera. And no Dennis or Carl. And Brian being like he is....... It sits uneasily with the joy of their music, that's for sure.

Judy and I watched "The TAMI Show" last night and re-discovered our inner Beach Boys fans. I wanted to post "Do It Again" but I can't find a decent clip.

Yesterday, I unexpectedly heard 'Girl Don't Tell Me', one of my very favourites by the Beach Boys' - great song by Brian, great vocal by the 18 year old Carl (one of his earliest leads) and just the three Wilson brothers with no Mike Love or (aprt from some tambourine) session musicians. Why would anyone play the A-side when this was issued as the flip to 'Barbara Ann' ?

Today, it's just 'Don't Tell Me'

Oh dear. Did anyone see them on 'Later' ? Brian Wilson having to share a keyboard with Jools Holland - what price dignity ??

Girl Don't Tell Me is one of the greatest B sides ever. No arguing.
Try and locate Boston band Fuzzy's 1996 version.
(For once, it's not on youtube. This must be a first).
There is a mix of various covers, though

I recently had to apply for my own job...reorganisation/cutbacks...that sort of sketch. Maybe Brian Wilson will have to do the same. Perhaps the CEO, Mr. Love has simply taken the reasonable economic decision to outsource the band. Wilson and the other two will probably be re-employed at a more modest salary. We're all in this together.
