DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Re: Jan Berry songs without Brian

That's right I make all the big calls. Calls other people are afraid to make through fear of upsetting Beachboys and Jan and Dean fans alike.

Yeah look I don't think there's any difference in the lyrical content of YRKHTHAG and It's A Shame To Say Goodbye as compared to any of the lyrics on Pet Sounds. They're as simplistic as each other there's nothing complex in the lyrics between the two. Tony Ashers lyrics well written but nothing mind boggling. Take away the backing track to Wouldn't It Be Nice and you can basically slot it into the All Summer Long Lp. Same goes for something like Don't Talk Put Your Head On My Shoulder take away the backing track, lyrics nothing more complex than any track on the B side of Beachboys Today Lp.
I really can't see a huge gap between the lyrical content of the above mentioned J & D tracks and anything on Pet Sounds. Beachboys complex lyrics kicked in during the Van Dyke Parks era. Just listen to Little Girl I Once Knew, recorded October 65, during the Pet Sounds sessions, it's evident that there's a heavy influence from YRKHTHAG.
With a little bit more effort on Folk n Roll, ie less covers more originals Jan and Dean could have had something as well rounded as Pet Sounds. But Jan was always pressed for time and had a lot of different things going on at the same time. I don't think a second rate label like liberty would have given Jan & Dean 10 months of studio time to complete an album.

Lets face it people it's the other way around Brian Wilson ripped off Jan Berry. He heard YRKHTHAG released April 65 and then started work on Pet Sounds July 65. The whole albums reflective of YRKHTHAG....Slot the backing track into the Pet Sounds album you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Pet Sounds album cover photos taken February 66. Idea from Jan and Dean On the Run TV pilot filmed a good three months earlier Nov 65, Jan and Dean montage at same zoo with YRKHTHAG playing over the top. You never read any references from Wilson in regards to YRKHTHAG and its influence on his Pet Sounds project.Took him almost a year to perfect the sound until its release around mid 66.
I rest my case.

Yeah we'll there's some great tracks on the CDs and Deans involvement is just an added bonus. David Marks what more can you ask for. Great mixture of tracks. Some great power pop, favourite track Kitty Hawk and Deans girls do a great job. The sitar is used well.

Black Sea you're wrong lol. This new set are American and yes these ones have never been packaged properly. I don't trust anything except Jap copies. I've sampled all the various releases and the Jap copies are by far the best. I mean they knock out even the original vinyl releases. Now Sundazed they know how to package but the final product on SFARD is a complete let down they really made a meal out of it, the sound of one of my bootlegs sounds better. Packaging is one thing but you gotta get the sound right.

Yeah the EMI Toshiba ones are the ones to get. The others forget them, one way C5 and a couple other labels, worst one probably Raven records. The Toshiba EMI ones are the best, however the fully packaged ones have been on back order since the first run, managed to get a few of them but all they are now are downloads. You'll probably recommend ebay but I don't buy second hand, that is CDs. Toshiba didnt press up enough packaged copies and have left it as a download. Got one on backorder its been a year I doubt they'll do another run.

The new ep from the Bamboo Trading Co is just a itunes download too much mucking around to get the cover and and CD printed.  I'v got the  KITTYHAWK TO SURF CITY CD.  I 've been listening to it in the car great stuff. Do yourself a favour and get a copy.
Same deal with the Japanese J & D releases until they're packaged properly for sale I won't be buying.  Down loading onto a blank CD and putting the cover CD label together just doesn't cut it, pardon the pun.
UNTIL NEXT TIME

.
Yeah its no big deal putting it together, but the Jan and Dean Jap releases definitely need to be packaged properly.

I think the point Dean was making has nothing to do with using the web as a tool to keep fans updated on the PROFESSIONAL side of J & D . I think he was talking about how people have their nose in their smart phones every waking min.  I agree 100% percent with him BTW.

You're on the money there.  That's exactly right no more no less.  I can't believe people are making a drama out of one quote.

Man I'm tired of hearing/talking about these rerecordings, were going around in circles. I'm off to do some surfin and listening to Jan and Dean. I'll tune in same time next year. Blacksea I'll keep in touch anything new comes in I'll let you know. If you wanna come to Maroubra Beach for some surfin let me know I'll be your personal body guard. My redneck cohorts wont give you a hard time as long as I'm around, haha.
Cheers Guys
Keep on listening to Jan and Dean

Now you've done it Blacksea you've upset somone on the forum. I was wondering how long it would take before someone took offence. Just for the record actorman I was referring to the music nothing else.
Blacksea at least you didnt come back with the line "some of my best friends are gay"
Actorman I can assure you Blacksea isnt homophobic.
He wears Hawaiian shirts in public and grew up in the gay area of Sydney a suburb called Newtown.
But if you want to come back at him go for it, hes a bit of head swell hahaha.

The originals are by far the better. These things are hard to control once theyre out. But its the case for nearly all the artists from the past.

I really dont think people buy cds anymore. Everythings downloaded from free sites. All those Jan and Dean rarities we would knock ourselves out getting in th 80s and 90s can be downloaded from the interner one click of a button and youve got 15 cds worth of Jan and Dean  rarities outakes backing tracks. I really dont think the teenagers nowdays care about how they get there music these days. Theyre not conxerned about neat covers or quality. Nearly everythings readily available, youtube free download sites, bootleg zones.
