Welcome to the Blue Bambu Room, a lounge where you can kick back, listen to the waves, have a cold one, and talk about Dennis, his music, his life, his brothers, his band. TO RETURN TO DENNIS WILSON DREAMER .ORG, CLICK ON THE PHOTO TO THE LEFT.

NOTE: On June 18th, 2008, Sony BMG/ Legacy Recordings released the long awaited reissue of Dennis Wilson's masterwork, the acclaimed 1977 solo album Pacific Ocean Blue. 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.

So, have you heard the new release? What do you think? What surprised you? Do you have questions? Reviews? Opinions? - they are all welcome here.

Re: Recording dates for Baby Blue

That makes BBS Australian tour in the middle of the Baby Blue recording dates.

I assume Love Surrounds Me started in Karen Lamm's time and ended in Christine McVie's.

No wonder these two songs have so many different versions.

Re: Recording dates for Baby Blue

Thanks Craig - that's a great song. Since Carl's vocals are all over it, I wonder if it would have been on Bambu had it not been given to LA Light...

I think probably so, because Carl is also heavily featured on "It's Not Too Late", and because in a radio interview in the midst of their February/March Australian tour, Carl stated that he would be "doing" Dennis' next album with him (likely referring to a guest lead vocal on "Baby Blue", and the rough vocal of which that we hear on bootlegs probably came from this time period).

Re: Recording dates for Baby Blue and Love Surrounds Me?

Baby Blue was the B side on the Here Comes The Night single from the LA Light album. The single was released on February 13th '79. The Song was written Dennis Wilson/Gregg Jakobson/Karen Lamm.

Love Surrounds me was the B side on the Good Timin single. The single was released on April 16th '79. The Song was written by Dennis Wilson/Geoffry Cushing Murray.

Good Timin hit #40 and #12 on the adult contemporary charts.

Dennis was such a great talent and such a great loss. The Beach Boys Summer Love Songs have Fallin' in Love/Lady which is tremendous. Originally released in December '70 with Daryl Dragon. Take a listen and it makes you miss Dennis that much more.

Peace everyone!
