So, here are Elvis fans, hard-core, very interested in this new Beach Boys box set. Very expensive, lesser known songs, beautiful book, artwork, everything.

I wonder what Beach Boys fans in a Beach Boys forum would think of "Elvis at Stax." And the endearing "art" on the cover! :oops:

Just an observation.

rjm (my fave song of theirs of all time is "Wouldn't It Be Nice." To me, it's a sad song, but beautiful, ethereal.)

I started a Elvis At Stax-thread on the smileysmile.net messageboard. Many people are looking forward but the artwork hasn't been talked about very much yet. As a Beach Boys fan you are used to bad taste

Fri Jun 14, 2013 9:30 pm

From brianwilson.com:

Do It Again is a true stereo mix made from the recently found 8 track master

We're Together Again- is a new stereo mix with strings also from a newly recovered 8 track master

The live All I Want To Do is complete and contains elements not heard on the mix on the Rarities album

The live Help Me Rhonda features Dennis on the lead vocal

The live Wild Honey features Blondie Chaplin on lead vocal and guitar

Just seen the price on Amazon. £100.40. I really don't know what has happened with CD prices lately, this is outrageous. I know there's a lot of unreleased material on there (if you don't have the bootlegs, I guess) but it's not that long ago when a set like this would have sold for £40 maximum. At that price, I'd have pre-ordered it immediately, the same way that I have bought literally hundreds of similar box sets over the years. But at £100 I'll be looking for a download.

How about waiting until it's released and then check the price? It's not uncommon that pricemarks change before the actual release date.

Possibly, but I don't think it'll move much. It's the norm these days, a new box set comes in at £80 plus, usually justified by the inclusion of a book. But almost all box sets have always included detailed books, haven't they?

Re: Made In California - New Beach Boys Boxset

145.00 USA Amazon. Who buys big expensive box sets anymore? Its not the 90's. I see many laying in used bins whenever I do find a store that still sells CDs. I love the Beach Boys, but the 1993 box set was good enough. Soon they will be catching up to Elvis in the re-release category.

Re: Made In California - New Beach Boys Boxset

Brian, Al and David had their first show yesterday and the setlist was very nice. Hits but also rarities like "Ol' man river" and Dennis' "Little bird".
BTW in a recent interview Al mentioned that he'd like to do more rarities including stuff from "Love you".

Mike & Bruce now use one of the songs that will be featured on the box in their shows. "Keepin' the summer alive"'s outtake "Goin' to the beach".

Not even close to Elvis re-release level for rare songs, alt takes, or live shows. They could put out as many as Elvis on FTD.

This is one box I will pass on. Not worth the big bucks to buy mostly the same songs again. Elvis fans are spoiled in comparison.

Currently £82 on amazon UK. Elvis's complete masters had 5 times the discs, but sold for around 6 times the price. So...why do people moan about the price of the Beach Boys collection which, at least, does contain new material, but think that the price for Elvis set was fine when it contained nothing new - it's even been called a bargain!

The Beach Boys set is cheap on a per disc basis.

The answer is that both sets are overpriced.

The new Harry Nilsson RCA box costs less than £60, and contains 17 discs, including 55 unreleased tracks.

I never noticed before but Dennis really has some vocal similarities to Brian.

Re: Made In California - New Beach Boys Boxset

Fri Aug 16, 2013 4:21 am

That's a nice vocal from Dennis - he really did sing good before his voice was wrecked from too much cocaine and alcohol. Similar arrangement to the one on their 1973 live album - an album completely lacking in lead vocals from Dennis.
