I'll contribute $20 as long as photographic proof of this mockery of democracy is posted.

I don't want to go back through the prior 13 pages of this thread - so maybe this has already been mentioned - but if you want to truly get "unsettled" by the musical styling of Michael Edward Love - listen to "Rockin' the Man in the Boat" off of his dreadful solo album. If you do not feel massively unclean after listening to it - I'd be shocked. It is especially awful if you picture him singing it while wearing the awful satin jacket and Dodgers cap from the cover of the LP and the fact that he manages to twist in the phrase "good vibrations" is, uh - I'll just leave it at that.

It was pointed out to me that there's a photo credit on the goddamned album cover. Because that is such an amazing photo. That man is class incarnate.

edit: Did I really need to use the phrase album cover twice in the same sentence? Sigh.

Holy shit, it's a double album? https://mikelove.com/beach-boys-mike-lo ... er-17-bmg/

Also, even as a drummer myself, I love that they highlight John Stamos' drumming contributions.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I still cannot get over how many times he put his own name on the cover.
