27: Good Vibrations (stereo - original lyrics)

Brian Wilson's 2004 arrangement of SMiLE as performed
by the Beach Boys back in the day. In
glorious STEREO, just like it says on the cover.
We decided to do it the way we imagined which
necessitated edits, manipulation, speed tempo
and pitch correction, etc. Despite killing
all the sacred cows it sounds mighty fine to us.

There have been many, many other attempts
at reconstructing SMiLE. This one is by far the best I've
heard. It all flows together beautifully, the
arrangements and cuts are probably as good
as we're going to get. Also, unlike any other version, it's
almost completely in stereo. I think only
"On A Holiday" is mostly mono, by necessity.
Good Vibrations really packs a punch.

May 13, 1968 [date uncertain]
Avalon Ballroom
San Francisco, CA

The sound quality is very good FM from low gen. off-air reel.

1st set 47:04
01 Waiting 8:21
02 Treat 10:22
03 Evil Ways 8:45
04 Shades of Time 3:40
05 > Savor 5:03

07 announcer & crowd noise 0:41

01 announcer intro & crowd noise 0:10
02 Persuasion 3:47
03 Soul Sacrifice 3:31
04 > drums 11:36
05 > Soul Sacrifice 20:44
06 talk: "Don't Go No Further..." & crowd noise 0:38

Carlos Santana: Guitar, Percussion, Vocals
Marcus Malone: Percussion
David Brown: Bass
Gregg Rolie: Keyboards, Vocals
Bob "Doc" Livingston: Drums

Probable lineage: 1st or 2nd gen. copy of off-air reel master.

The date is uncertain because of the announcer comments at the end of the first set about 5 nights coming up of benefit shows with 5 bands a night. There is a poster for Santana playing at the Avalon from May 17-19, which would be the last 3 nights of that "5 day benefit" if the date of the 13th was correct but only 2 bands and no benefit are listed on the poster for the May 17-19 run. Some people think that this is from that May 17-19 run at the Avalon, but that comment about the benefit still messes things up, because there are Avalon posters with the typical 2 bands and no mention of any benefits all the way up to the end of November 1968. After Chet Helms "Family Dog" stopped booking shows at the Avalon another promoter, "Soundproof", put on more shows at The Avalon starting in January 1969. Jerry Abram's Headlights are mentioned also by the announcer, and they did do both the '68 Family Dog Avalon shows and the '69 Soundproof shows.

Based upon all of this information, I would put the probable date as being close to the end of Chet Helms run at the Avalon. The posters for weekly Friday thru Sunday shows stopped at the end of November, 1968. Soundproof took over in January '69, so I would speculate that this show here is really from December, 1968. That would be when benefits to keep Chet Helms going at The Avalon would have been probable. The announcer doesn't say that the benefit shows would be for any other cause, and the regular scheduled weekend shows apparently had ended, so there might have been time for a 5 day Wednesday thru Sunday benefit before the Family Dog completely stopped doing shows at the Avalon...

So I am listing this as 5-13-68 [date uncertain - might actually be from December, 1968]

But I'm sure you will enjoy this no matter what!

Boards of Canada / Christ BBC sessions

Boards of Canada - 'XYZ' unreleased peel sessions track, recorded from the original radio broadcast.

Christ - live Maida Vale (presented by John Peel).

“Christ” was once a Boards of Canada band member but left the band before they became famous. However, BOC and Christ's music have a lot in common: voice samples, haunting ambient, dreamscape like melodies.

(In case you become interested in Christ's official releases: 'Pylonesque' EP and
'Metamorphic reproduction Miracle' album are both released on the Scottish Benbecula label.
Both highly recommended).

Link of the week:

Susie normally writes about sexual matters in her blog. Her
latest entry, and the comments and links which follow it,
all pertain to Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath,
and are quite
edifying indeed.

Although there’s very little discussion of sex
this time around, I recommend that you surf
this link from home rather than from work.

Last Tuesday, National Public Radio began a series featuring Story Corps, an organization which takes oral histories from American citizens. NPR plans to broadcast these stories and file them with the Library of Congress.

Tuesday’s installment included an interview with Elaine and John Leinung, parents of former WHRW General Manger Paul Battaglia, who was killed in the attacks of 9/11/2001. If you missed that segment, you can listen to it here.
