It would have already happened if he was interested.

What about smoking weed? Listening to Filet Of Soul sure makes it seem like they may have hahaha. I'm not surprised Dean hasn't done acid. SFRD and COS, to me, prove that J&D could have made it during the psychedelic era.

That's what I meant by he never partook.  Dean does not speak down about drug use, but maintains he did not smoke pot  didn't want to.

My CD just came in. I love it!! Filet of Soul is a great album! The liner notes were good but I'm not sure how accurate some of that is. Dean mentions the Popsicle thing again where he remixes the song. But there is no evidence that he did. David Beard does a great job on his section. But he does sort of imply that Brian Wilson just gave a completed Surf City to Jan and Dean. And then the producer credits has
Producer: Jan Berry
Co-Producer: Dean Torrence
Is that how the credits would have read on the album?
I'm not saying it's not true. Hell, I don't know. I'm just asking.

Glad you love FOS as much as I do.

First and foremost, questioning Dean's firsthand account is not something I'm comfortable doing.   Dean was there.  I was not.  Mark was not.  We don't need documentation to listen to the friendship on FOS; it's palpable.  These guys are having fun. 

The notes I wrote state that Brian provided Jan & Dean with a string of hit records.  There is no implication of the state of "Surf City" when Brian offered the song to the duo.  The purpose of my notes were to give a newbie fan an overview of how Jan and Dean went from a doo-wop group to producing a comedy album.

The credits listed for the FOS Redux release are a direct  reflection of the "in-studio" mixing that took place.  Dean was very involved in the complete deconstruction and sabotage of FOS in late 1965/early 1966.   I have an actual "Popsicle" 45 single that has Dean's Sharpie starred B-side (so DJ's would play that side instead of "Norwegian Wood") in its original Liberty envelope.

In my opinion, Mark's book research, my research, and Dean's firsthand account align very well. 

The most important fact is this: I finally convinced Dean to release FOS in its entirety.  And he did it for all of us.

Dean did not/has not ever taken LSD, and has also stated he never partook.

The cripple joke appears in the shorter (2nd) version.  The released version is the acetate that Dean hand-delivered.

There is only one book listed on Amazon.  It is not Dean's book. 

I have no idea how that book can say that.  Someone is clearly taking liberties.

I am not involved in Dean's book.  I was not there, and did not experience Dean's life.  I think not sure that he is doing it solo.

Mine arrives Friday . Just ordered Dean's book too.

That is not Dean's book.

That is not Dean's book Not sure what it is, but I can promise it is not Dean's book. 

I thought it was as well, and erroneously reported that this was Dean's book.  Apologies to anyone who got the news from ESQ.

At present, Dean is still working on his book. 

On another subject, Dean and I just completed The Beach Boys 2016 Official Tour program together.  Dean supplied the cover art, as well as the airbrushed lyrics to the Beach Boys' song "Good Vibrations" I did the rest (40 pages).  Even though this program is being sold at Mike & Bruce shows, the content represents all members of The Beach Boys.

The Bamboo Trading Company is: Gary Griffin (Beach Boys band, Jan & Dean band, Brian Wilson band, Surf City Allstars), Matt Jardine (Beach Boys band, California Saga, Surf City Allstars), Randell Kirsch (Jan & Dean band, Beach Boys band), Philip Bardowell (Jan & Dean band, Surf City Allstars), Chris English and Miami Dan Yoe.  The group's debut CD features 13 tracks.

Dean appears on five songs, and sings lead on "Tweet (Don't Talk Anymore)."

Here's the first music video from the Bamboo Trading Company's CD! "Shrewd Awakening" is track #7 on the new album, and it stars Dean, Katie & Jillian Torrence, Gary & Elizabeth Griffin and actor Bruce Davison (who portrayed Torrence in 1978's "Deadman's Curve" TV movie).  "Shrewd Awakening" music video
