Comment:

A mix made for Valis, based on a comment that he liked almost anything that sounds like Pet Sounds (or words to that effect). Of course not all of this sounds like that classic Beach Boys' album, but it is a hodgepodge of covers and music relating to or inspired by the Boys of Summer. I gotta thank Popkulcher for the Oranger and Lucyisblue for Les Excentriques (who apparently prefer Cherie's help over Rhonda's). I had plenty of worthy stuff left over that wouldn't fit, so expect a sequel somewhere down the road.

This is an instant favorite. Wow. And you came through with "Pale and Precious," the best Beach Boys song they never wrote. Great mix, Ion.

Great mix, but no At My Most Beautiful?

Actually it was toss up between At My Most Beautiful and Summer Turns to High. I only wanted to use one song per artist, and Summer won out.

Well..., I've just managed to get back into my commander's chair after falling out of it upon reading the descriptor..., not only does this fill me with good vibrations I may go away for awhile once I get this! (Nice Llamas pick!)
Thanks Ion..., and you posted it early too!

When I first looked at the title, my first thought was "I hope he included "pale and Precious.'" Thanks for not letting me down. :-)

you totall neglected david lee roth's version of "california girls" and wax's version of "do you wanna dance
," but that's alright, because one could easily make an argument for those songs sucking.

Great work, Ion. I really would like this when you have the time. We'll have to get some more trades organised, my friend.

The Oranger song is a phenomenal pick. Though how can you have an album of Beach Boys soundalikes and not include Beulah or the Apples in Stereo?

Sorry for the typos down there. And I forgot to say that any mix including Lesley Gores brilliant "California Nights" is a WINNER in my book (and I'm not talkin' Mark Twai here).

Wow! Valis gave me an accidental heads up that this was on the way...and it looks phenomenal! That cover...man! First Class' Beach Baby is an obvious BB's sound-a-like that comes to mind. I, too, would love a copy.

Ion....I was thinking: "Wouldn't It Be Nice" if this received Mix of the Week..? (I almost lobbied for it, but "That's Not Me.")"God Only Knows" there's other serious contenders this week......but I came "Here Today" thinking "I Know There's An Answer"......so, CONGRATULATIONS!!!
(And "Hang On To Your Ego" !!!)

Where can I get that car?!?

Moe
Date: 8/12/2002
Thanks for the complimentary comments everyone! I'll be sure to get a copy to anyone who wants one. The Pet Sounds car, made by Racing Champions, came out about 3 or 4 years ago, and is no longer available in stores. And yes, they also made a Sammy Hagar one, along with an Ozzy Osbourne "Madman Van."

Congratulations! I'd like to nominate a song for volume two: "Perfect Lovesong" by The Divine Comedy.

I'd LOVE this one, Ion. I agree with what Valis said about Pet Sounds (I'm waiting for Take 6 to cover the entire album). Did you consider Todd R's sound alike Good Vibrations from the mid 70'?

You know your sh*t. "Pale and Precious" by XT...I mean Dukes of Stratosphear proves it. Also the Psychic TV. Their song "White Nights" on the album "Dreams Less Sweet" is also very Beach Boysey. By the way, to all B.B. fans, check out "Pulp Fiction" soundtrack curator Chuck Kelley's weekly radio tribute to them on Luxuriamusic.com.

This is truly a 5-Star mix. Have been working on my own mix of BW/BB soundalikes when I came across yours! I still plan to complete mine - there will be some overlap - I have a decent number of songs that do not appear on any of your 3 mixes. Would love to get a copy of each of these...is it possible? Email me privately at: chadzwo@myway.com. Thanks for the great mix, and some ideas for my own.
