"Copyright Extension release" is how they're referring to such releases (at least in Dylan's case).

Didn't realize this was happening. Awesome.

Got a request: Glenn Campbell - Guess I'm Dumb. Brian co-wrote it I believe. Got a big urge to listen to it now, but can't turn off the show. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/17/15 3:26pm Parq:

"Surf's Up" is so damn lovely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/17/15 3:28pm Carmichael:

Campbell was quite a surf guitar player back in the day. Not surprised if he appeared somewhere on an early Beach Boys album.

In about 1972 early Beach Boy albums could be found in the dollar bin around here.

Speaking as a chick, I loved the movie. But not for Melinda's story. I loved the scenes of Brian's creativity (in the studio especially). I was interested in another chick from the movie and found a great interview with Carol Kaye on youtube. Also must say, I don't really like the Beach Boys because of the vocals-falsetto :( and the lyrics. Am loving this show today with all the instrumentals. Thanks!
  Wed. 6/17/15 4:43pm phat:

Holy cow! That is where those harmonies came from.

@ Lynn -- and here's the source of that falsetto. it is still fingernails on the chalkboard to me but makes my mom swoon
  Wed. 6/17/15 4:44pm phat:

And, hearing this I hear the Stan Kenton.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/17/15 4:44pm rrg:
