Capitol released three Beach Boys tracks in December under the title The Beach Boys 1969: I'm Going Your Way. I can't say they add much to their oeuvre.

"I'm Going Your Way" aka "California Slide" -- alternate take

"Slip On Through" -- early instrumental version (the best of the three)

"Carnival (Over the Waves)"

Regarding "Over the Waves" (I didn't know it had a title):

Quote:
The waltz "Sobre las olas" (or "Over the Waves") is the best-known work of Mexican composer Juventino Rosas (1868–1894). It "remains one of the most famous Latin American pieces worldwide", according to the ... Oxford Companion to Music.

It was first published by Rosas in 1888.

 

Three on a temporal theme:

The Ronettes -- "When I Saw You" (credited to Phil Spector alone)

Death Cab For Cutie -- "When We Drive"

Cliff Edwards -- "When You Wish Upon a Star" (not sung by a cricket or Cricket)

Quote:
Clifton Avon "Cliff" Edwards (1895-1971), nicknamed "Ukulele Ike", was an American musician, singer, actor and voice actor, who enjoyed considerable popularity in the 1920s and early 1930s, specializing in jazzy renditions of pop standards and novelty tunes. He had a number-one hit with "Singin' in the Rain" in 1929. He also did voices for animated cartoons later in his career, and is best known as the voice of Jiminy Cricket in Walt Disney's Pinocchio (1940)...

Have to agree, Larry. Those three old Beach Boys recordings that were recently released are bottom of the barrel stuff. 

I keep hoping that Brian may eventually release some new music of his own. We can hope!

'sobre las olas'
juvenito rosas
.
a late 19th century musician / salon composer in mexico city.
inspired by a river, but not the danube.
who'd've known it wasn't a bit of a frivolous johann strauss waltz?

must say i rather enjoy what them bb's attempted here.
right in keeping wth the times, what!
i could just see van dyke parks adding his stamp to a mad waltz recording of the tune.

here's a movie clip from a 1950 biopic about rosas:

...and then i remembered this quirky treasure.
not as loopy as some vdp arrangements,
but, again river, inspired and evoking 'rollin' on the river' 
in the steamboat age on the mighty mississippi.

meanwhile...
this one waltzes along madly,
in more bonkers vdp stylee:


and this is an example that must predate the bb's' mad studio effort
- they should've rounded up vdp to assist on that recording...
