Jan made the re-recordings of his hits at the suggestion of Lou Adler, who advised him it's possible to license his own versions of the songs to companies looking to create new compilations.  I didn't like the idea and thought those recordings detracted from the album as well, but Jan was intent on having them be part of the project.


That makes perfect sense, I suppose. Or it would do if Jan had been able to resist fiddling with them. :)

With the extra lyrics and the new arrangements they sound much more like remakes than Dean's cover versions to me, and thus far less likely to be picked up by people wanting tracks for compilation albums.

Track # 29 on the COS release is my favorite. The backing track from Girl, You're Blowing my Mind. Could've been so good!!


yeah, definitely.  BMM sounds like it would've been a great mid-Sixties rocker, and a good choice as a single to follow-up I Found A Girl.  That could really have helped define the new direction the act was going in, post-surf rock, and it seems like the song with the most commercial potential out of anything Jan worked on following Folk-n-Roll (although I really like Flight of the Batmobile, too).

i d also love to hear any demos of blowing my mind. To me that should have been the lead single from the 3 released. I think jan spent to much time on it. I m sure that would have put jan and dean in the charts.

I'm going to take a different tack on this, I'd really like to have heard  Jan finish Blow My Mind pre-accident.  It would also be fun to hear a demo or rough lyrical take from '66, even if it wouldn't sound all that different from the version that was completed (although without the overdubbed effects, which I think detract from the song).

I read somewhere once that Laurel & Hardy was written around the time that the cartoon was in production and may have been intended for submission as the intro theme.  I don't know if that's true or not but it sounds like one.

if you could choose a song,you wish jan would have re recorded in the 70s from the c o s session, what track would you choose. I have to go with laurel and hardy.
