Great!  thanks, Darren!

I am admittedly trying to raise the profile of the so-called "Lost Brian Wilson/Andy Paley Tapes/Sessions" also know as "Slightly American Music."  At this point, it hurts no one to hear these great songs.!

How about a special issue, Rhino Records?  Wonder if Gary from "The Last" still works there... Wouldn't it be Nice to be able to just play this 'Every Summer Day'? *

This is the first demo of 'Telstar', referred to just below, taken from an album called Joe Meek - Portrait of a Genius - The RGM Legacy...


I found this on Songnotes.com: Joe Meek took a tape of "Try Once More," which he had written with songwriter Geoff Goddard, to Alan Caddy and Clem Cattini of The Tornados. Joe sang wordless vocals over Geoff's backing track. Clem Cattini recalled, "He played us this tape of him singing and the music didn't really sound right. It had all wrong time and key signatures. So we listened to the tape to get the idea and basically re-wrote the music."

If anyone gets to see the movie, Clem has a cameo in it as John Leyton's chaffeur. 

Plenty of vision of Joe here and some of the Tornados...


There are so many re-recordings and re-mixes of 'Telstar' on YouTube, it's nice to see the original showcased this week. 

That said, the person who chose the photos for the clip slipped up. 

The thumbnail (appearing at 1:24
) is NOT the Tornados, but the American group the Tornadoes! Also, the group at 2:32 is not the same one either.

thanks, Lee, Popeye not the sailor, and Al, and of course, the great Professor (the great cannot be too embarrassed about their greatness, they learn to live with it).

if the Wilson/Paley sessions had been a fully realized album, one suspects that 'This Isn't Love' would have--in reasonable 'Pet Sounds' analogy, been either starting side 1 in the 'Wouldn't it Be Nice' slot or starting side 2, in the 'God Only Knows' slot.  As an instrumental, it's wonderful too, of course!   so it makes sense to begin.  But with words, I would vote for beginning the 2nd side, which I know, in the digital world is a false construct that no one cares about anymore.  Still like 'Everything I Need' in the 'Caroline, No' slot...

Thanks to John B & Popeye for the votes. And to the John/Darren tag team, Larry, Lee, Al, bonnie & Popeye for more videos.

Darren, one of your clips brought up this clip on the side menu.
And as it happens, I own the complete film thanks to a friend who gave me a copy a few years ago. That is Heinz, of course, on the vocal here (I had no idea who he was), but that’s Dave Clark as the record producer (his first speaking role), and a very young Steve Marriott is the drummer. Ritchie Blackmore is also in the film (as a member of The Outlaws), but not seen here.

Here’s a couple wordless tracks by Jefferson Airplane
(from Surrealistic Pillow) - Embryonic Journey


(from Bark) - Wild Turkey

Ok, John B, you win! I thought "This Isn't Love" should have been nominated for an Oscar (it was in that poorly-received Flintstones in Las Vegas movie), but my vote was suppressed.

Some of Yo La Tengo's shorter instrumentals:

"Return to Hot Chicken"


"Leaving Home"


"Dr. Crash"


"From a Motel 6 #1"



Two favorite instrumentals from the guys and their associates:

"Good To My Baby"


"Surf Jam"


Bonus (?) track:

The Royal Aces, "Surf Jam", live without the yelling

Okay t, the ONLY one that I could listen to more than once is Gold: The Beach Boys/Brian Wilson - Summer Means New Love

Edgar and Rick and the boys get the Silver this week even though I REALLY don't like this song.

The other two are kinda corny so they share the bottom - Bronze/Tin together:

The Tornados - Telstar  The Marketts - Out of Limits

With Summer Means New Love - kind of a follow up to After The Game.  Also it was the flip of Caroline, No. Lee, I'll take ANY addition of music over Bull Session or Our Favorite Recording flops.

The Survivors:
