Doesn't it defy logic and history that Mike Love and Gene Simmons haven't done an album together?

Thanks, Google image search.

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.

Is that 'shopped? The whole thing seems flat and odd. But my eyes might be fucked here.

Thanks, Satan.

Well, consider the subject matter.

Ahem, I am the board's #1 Summer In Paradise fan.

A few minor critiques - You gotta go with the original version of SiP for the "surfers recycled now don't you know?" line. Problem Child and Croc Rock are probably better than the tracks they replace. Otherwise, the Little Richard song and Smart Girls as a Summer of Love companion piece are inspired choices.

I should have added your name to the post, as I was thinking of y'all's attempt to make the absolute worst Beach Boys album possible.

That's true. Flex is the master and I am merely the 89-92 obsessive.

Whereas I have a tremendous amount of familiarity with 1961-1977 and a HUUUUUGE drop-off after that (though I did listen quite a bit at one time to my copy of Still Cruisin', which collects the high(?)lights of their output from the late 80s mini-comeback).

Don't sell yourself short. You cracked the cold case of the dead Asian chick in the VH1 video no one ever watched the first time around. That's one more outstanding warrant on the Rape Van than we had a year ago. :naughty:

I'm pretty sure Mike Love's surfer recycling program he endorsed so heavily on SiP was part of court mandated community service he was sentenced to for all the dead Japanese women they found in the rape van that hot summer in 1990.
