Aside from a brief CD release in 1992, this is the first time this album has been widely available to the public since it's first appearance. Included in this release is a second disc packed with previously unreleased material from sessions leading up to a second solo album, tentatively titled BAMBU.

Re: Beach Boys in UK early 70s

the Jimmy Savile -arranged performance was, I thought, in a hospital, not an old folks home

Re: Beach Boys in UK early 70s

Thanks all for the prompt replies, in particular to Jon for the background info which clarifies my understanding of the circumstances a good deal.

I must admit I wasn't aware of the DW documentary airing in July so I will certainly look out for that.

Thanks again - great website.

Re: Beach Boys in UK early 70s

According to the excellent Beach Boys book by Keith Badman, the Beach Boys played at The King Edward Nurses Home at Leeds General Infirmary on the afternoon of June 8th 1969.

Apparently they only bought 3 acoustic guitars and a set of drumsticks with them but they managed to put on a 75 minute set that thrilled the staff of the hospital

Re: Beach Boys in UK early 70s

Nurses Home, rather than Nursing Home, maybe that's where the old folk entered the equation...although the footage does kind of look nursing( or old folks)home-ish. I also recall Dennis playing maracas in the footage.

Re: Beach Boys in UK early 70s

Yeah, there's a great shot in that footage of him dancing around with maracas. Was that bit used in the doc., though? Your memory of where things are used is better than mine. I tend think of footage in it's full context.

Re: Beach Boys in UK early 70s

Yeah there's a snippet where you can see him with the maracas in WIBN.
