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: Is there a list of unreleased DW tracks?

There was a great discussion we had somewhere, when POB was first re-released, about the number of songs Dennis worked the same melodies through at times, before they found a permanent home. The same was true of song titles, as he often changed the a songs title, especially if there was a major change in the direction of the lyric.

Re: Is there a list of unreleased DW tracks?

Hi Andrew! I remember us exchanging emails years ago about some of these updates, some of which got done, while others....well, you know how it goes...

AAANYWAY, if you ever wanted to pitch me some specific updates that you might know about, I would be happy to quickly get them added, so we can, in fact, have a list like that on this site that's as accurate as we can be...

Thanks so much for your contributions to this board (and website). You're time, expertise, and good humor in the face of verbal weirdness is truly appreciated!

Re: Is there a list of unreleased DW tracks?

Surely... one that springs to mind is the storied "Spring Bass Song" - the tape box actually says "String Bass Song", and the track is an early stab at "Rainbows".

I'll take me a look soon and pitch you some emendations.

Re: Is there a list of unreleased DW tracks?

Following the links mentioned in this thread got me revisiting the Good Vibrations Box set and the track 4th of July. I can see it was recorded during two sessions in 1971. I wonder if there exist a version with Dennis on vocal, it's highly possible I think. Does anybody know?

Great track
