Post by: Admin on December 30, 2009, 09:04:07 PM
Welcome to the new board . . .

At long last . . . Carnival of Sound will be officially released by Rhino Handmade in early 2010.

A 1 CD / 1 LP set . . . with plenty of bonus tracks and extensive liner notes.

Let's talk about it . . .

Cool,

CD and an LP sounds like a winner.
Thanks Mark for the update.
How many versions of "blowin my mind" can we expect???
Any Jan Berry banter on the extended cuts???
Is it all Mono???
Take Care  Burton :)

Bonus tracks will include stereo mixes, and alternate takes.

Mark,

Does Dean have input on this project?
Like many fans I can't wait for this. I remember talking to other J&D fans about this like ten years ago. I heard like 5 or so years ago a label was looking at taking a shot at this project but it never happened. Right after the bootleg came out.
One more thing have you Mark heard the whole thing(CD & LP)?  My opinion " blowin my mind " could've and should've been a hit!! I'd like to hear from anyone(on the forum) about this.

Dean is contributing.

I've heard all the tracks, but haven't spun actual vinyl.

The stereo mixes alone are worth whatever the album costs. They really will "blow Your Mind."

I'm intrigued as to whether the album will feature some of the arrangements you used on the tribute album. The various bootleg versions I've heard don't. The tribute album featured some exciting and adventurous background harmonies. I Know My Mind especially.
Did the original album have any art work? I wasn't sure it ever got that far!

Some of the Carnival vocal arrangements we used for the tribute album (like "I Know My Mind") were written out on paper by Jan and his team in 1967 and 1968 . . . but were ultimately not used.

Thus, they're unique, but still Jan Berry arrangements authentic to the original project . . . and they were too good to pass up when we were recording the tribute.

Very big difference in sound… The same way the Dennis Wilson Bambu had been bootlegged for years, but when it was released in 2008 there was no comparison.

Post by: 1Jay1 on January 06, 2010, 02:34:26 PM
For many years i ve been waiting for this,and i understand about bootlegs of artist and songs which never come out,A lot of people would buy them as this could be the only chance of hearing a song which may have been talked about and was left of an Album and left in the can,and yes the Quality would not be good in some cases,

Paul McCartney once said about the Beatles Anthology cd set, he was glad the track were finally released so the general public could get to listen to them,he said it was a waste when there kept in storage at the EMI studios,

In the past i got The bootleg version of carnival of sound as i really wanted to hear this Album,and i m now glad to get the official release,and can t wait

If the quality of the sound is anything like "Louisiana Man" on the Hang 50 CD I'll be more than happy! That song sounds better than I have ever heard it, and is all the better because of that. I'm really looking forward to the sound-quality as much as the track listing.

Basic track-wise, the foundation is there . . . but Jan's version for Carnival is markedly different from Dean's. Jan's version features brass and woodwinds.

I d lke to see the dean version in the final release,the version on the Jan and dean label,(louisiana man),

With the singles being released on warner and jan and dean records,i get confused which version is which,thats why i thought dean was singing on a few warner sessions,as i have the single here,(louisiana man/like a summer rain-jan and dean records 402)

Also On a version of Blowing my mind theres jan saying i m flying just before the third verse,and i also read he sang back up vocals,so i wonder rhino will use that version.

Davy Jones's demo of Jan's "Laurel & Hardy" is included on the new Monkees box set . . . and the Monkees set and Carnival of Sound are pretty much coming out at the same time.

The producer in common? . . . Andrew Sandoval.

I don't quite understand the comparisons of Save For A Rainy Day and Carnival Of Sound as if the two are somehow interlocked… They're not. I think it would be interesting to combine the material of the two albums -- which I'll do for fun --- and make my very own J&D 1968 album.


Jan & Dean album #1 — Save For A Rainy Day
Yellow Balloon (single version)
Girl You're BLowing My Mind
Like A Summer Rain (single version)
Raindrops
Pocket Full Of Rainbows
Louisiana Man (Dean's version with quacks)
California Lullaby
Only A Boy
In The Still Of The Night
Yakety Yak
Stay
Summertime, Summertime

Jan & Dean album #2 — Carnival Of Sound
Carnival Of Sound
Vegetables
Hawaii
I Know My Mind
Laurel And Hardy
Mullholland
Love And Hate
Snowflakes On Laughing Gravy's Whiskers
Tijuana
Louisiana Man (Jan's version)
Title: Re: Carnival of Sound - Official Release on Rhino
Post by: Mark A. Moore on February 11, 2010, 02:04:33 PM
It's a shame Save A For A Rainy Day couldn't have been recorded in the big-studio system. That didn't happen, because Dean — not for lack of trying — wasn't allowed to record under Jan's Screen Gems account. So it was off to Joe's garage.

The Rainy Day masters on Sundazed suffer by comparison, fidelity-wise, to the new Carnival stuff on Rhino. A product of the recording process.

I love Save A For A Rainy Day , and can really imagine how much better it would sound had it been recorded in the "state of the art" of the era.

I've been listening to both albums a lot lately; and the more I listen to to Rainy Day, the more I appreciate it from a compositional and arrangement standpoint.

> It's a shame Save A For A Rainy Day  couldn't have been recorded in the big-studio system.

I completely agree.  The single version of Yellow Balloon was re-recorded in a "proper" studio, andf it is much better than the album version - improved arrangement (the piano break in te middle) and improved sound.

If only the rest could have been through this process too!

I love Save For A Rainy day, but the single version of Yellow Balloon and the Silver Summer re-recording of Like A Summer Rain offer tantalising glimpses of what might have happened if Dean's vision had been supported by the kind of studio facilities and musicians that Jan had at his fingertips.

Wouldn t it be boring if everyone thought the same,all of us on the forum are passionate fans of both jan and dean and at time we differ after all this forum is a place to debate your side of the jan and dean story and that what makes this forum great,

so lets grab our board and ride the wild surf on the carnival of sound forum,

Some reference, for those who don't know . . . Carnival of Sound reflects what Jan Berry was up to in the studio while Brian Wilson was working on Smile/Smiley Smile, Wild Honey, and Friends with the Beach Boys.

Here's a note that Jan & Dean aficionado Elliot Kendall put on a public yahoo board . . . so I thought I'd share it here. Fans may remember that Elliot wrote the liners for J&D's "Teen Suite 1958-1962" comp.

Quote
Just nabbed the finished TAMI DVD and Carnival Of Sound CD -- both are the coolest freaking Jan Dean masterpieces officially released in recent years -- gems on TAMI are commentary by Steve Binder, he gets WAY deep on why The Beach Boys were chopped out, how cool and underappreciated the dancers were/are, how all the artists that performed were mega-groovy and no egos and all appeared at the end to prove that they were ALL there at once --- and how J&D management was in the same building as he was, etc etc -- TAMI radio spots are also part of the bonus material (voiced by Wink Martindale? Someone probably knows or it might be in the booklet) -- Binder as many of you know is the same visionary who was behind Hullabaloo and Elvis '68 Comeback Special --- commentary is well worth the wait and super heavy ---

------ the Carnival I got was the CD version from an industry bro, but I plunked down on the credit card for TWO copies of the genius LP-sized $49.95 deluxe-o version, both versions are expected to go fast, haven't seen the deluxe yet but the CD sounds amazing, killer mastering --- "Louisiana Man" and all the freaky sitar by way of the surf is completely intact, crisp and clean -- Sandoval, Stanley, Hersch, Farber, Moore, Priore NAILED IT and the insanely great "rainy day vibe" artwork by Dean and overall packaging are pure clown prince trippy eye candy --- can't wait to dig into the notes @@@@@

Just got my copy in the mail and, man, it sounds really great. The stereo mixes are really well done, but the mono really tears it up. I've always been pretty ambivalent about this record except for Blowin My Mind, Fan Tan , and Hawaii, but I intend to give it a good listen and re-appraisal in the next few days. Good work all involved!

The 1,500 number was also just repeated in a recent newsletter from Rhino Handmade.

But it refers to the Deluxe Edition (CD/LP). The CD Edition (29 tracks) will be around longer.

Only three copies are known to exist and they come in a plain white sleeve

Two copies have a promo stamp on the label - mine hasn't  8)

Can you share a scan of the British LP label? . . . Maybe add it to the photos section?

I uploaded it in the photo section, but quality is bad, so here's a better pic

Extremely cool!  Never seen a closeup of the UK label.  I'll work on getting some things together concerning the Japan issue and posting under the "Save For..." Album topic.

That would be great. I'd like to have a Japanese issue too, with the cover and everything

The UK one only came in a "Promo" stamped white sleeve

  I intend to buy CARNIVAL in the near future. It's fascinating - well interesting at least - that both Jan & Dean used the name for separate projects where the other had no involvement.
