This is an interesting song from Al.  It shows off his folky side with a good helping of blues mixed in.  The guitar work is top notch.  A deep cut that would work well today.
It needs to be recognized. Thanks for bringing it forward!

Great choice Mary, one of the best deep cuts from the early 70s.   I was thrilled to hear Al do this song live earlier this year.

Mary, The Beach Boys were at the forefront of recording technology again with Stephen Desper and especially on this album.  Good choice of song and an album that people can scrutinize, but it is a beauty.

Hello - Hello,
                      Yeah it's my Birthday today and I just finished listening to Side 1 of The Greatest by Cat Power. I thought I would check out the Green Blue-Board before heading off to work. 

                       I have found things to be really quiet here lately and I think to myself I am going to have to find a way to change that if possible. 
Be the change you wish to see in the world... right ? RIGHT or was that left oops!! ha - ha ! 

                       Looking at Tomorrow was always fascinating song to me back when I was 14 or 15 Because it had that downwards moving Bass line which was obviously a BIG HOOK IN SO MANY BLUES ROCk CLASSICS OF THE "DAY" (60'S -SEVENTIES) I i was starting to listen to Eric Clapton a bit and so on,,,

                      Also, the lyrics seemed more dark and real in contrast to the poetry and fantasy that I had grown accustomed to from the Boys.
I have done a bit of research on Stephen D. and I know he is  a special engineer. The song ends up very well but I always found that certain parts in the beginning sounded  a bit hollow. That's my opinion of the recording on surf's up. Yet having now heard the Alan Jardine version I also remember that I was always smiling along by the end. Yes,  the bahmp bahmp bahmp part is very cool and picks the whole thing right up off the ground.
If he plays it live maybe he could follow it with the T.M. Song from 15 Big Ones! Always loved that vocal.

                                                  Gotta Run Run Run Now,
                                                                                          Later Babes! 
                                                                                                                  Best regards,
                                                                                                                                        Dean

Dean, et al.

So far, Al Jardine only has three shows (here in the east) set up for 2019.  But a lot of Brian shows!

Stay tuned.

I want to see if I can find the S. Desper book - Recording the Beach Boys some day. 

Stay true to the Blue!

A great song, Mary.  There should be more love for this one in general. 

Good luck with that, Dean.  It's pretty quiet around here.
