Review by: lemonjelloOn 13 Apr 2005 at 19:36 CEST
An interesting disc. This sounds as if it comes from a cassette tape of high generation. Maybe from some of the same tape that's on "Capitol Punishment" as this has one session of "Heroes and Villains" on a track with all the performances edited out and the in between chat left. The whole disc isn't like that though. Also another weird thing is that the track markers are quite arbitrary and each track contains many different sessions, some even crossing over to the next track.
Some of this material appears on other discs in slightly better quality (like Vigotone’s “Heroes and Vibrations”) but there are quite a bit of failed takes that I don’t recall hearing anywhere else (I haven’t done a strict comparison to the SOT “Smile Sessions” box yet). It also seams that this tape runs a little too fast. An enjoyable disc once you get used to the tape hiss and speed problem.

Here's a breakdown on the music on this disc:

1. In The Cantina (2:56)
The original "Cantina" mix from the twofer and "Good Vibrations" box - only in sub-standard sound quality.

2. Evening Session (8:35)
Someone rehearsing the organ part of "Fire". Someone rehearsing the low chromatic piano licks that constitute "Fire". Studio chatter / "Fire" Snippets from the extended 7-minute version released on the box set. "Mama says" segment.

3. Vocals (6:15)
Vocal rehearsals of that acapella segment which also turns up in "All Dressed Up For School" and "Goin' On" - you know the one I mean. Lots of studio chatter between takes.

4. With Me Tonite (15:27)
Someone tinkering on a piano - vaguely melodic but not heard in any released version. With Me Tonite - fast version that appears on the Vigitone boot. Vocal rehearsals for the dit-dit-dits before "How I Love My Gal" Studio chatter Farmyard noises Vocal rehearsals for the dum-dum-dums

5. Vocal Sessions (9:46)
Studio chatter and more dum-dum-dums Cello rehearsals for H&V verses (very interesting) -almost swamped in the final mix. Piano rehearsals (with Van Dyke Parks on the talkback) for the Cantina section; Organ licks - weird bits previously unheard.

6. Take 3 (5:36)
Rehearsals for the lush strings on the 7-minute version Brian is directing the musicians throughout.

7. Dil Dog (11:30)
Backing vocal rehearsals for the slow "sunny down snuff" section.

8. Do We Have To Do It Again (3:59)
Backing vocal rehearsals for the bom-bom-boms as the song slows down just before sunny down stuff.

9. Dum Dum Dum (4:26)
Deep dum-dum-dums just before the weird noise near the end of the alternate two-fer version. More backing vocal rehearsals of the high doo-doo-doo bits just before the All Dressed Up/Goin On section.

10. Heroes and Villains
A few seconds of someone tinkering at the piano.

Some of this material can also be found on the Archaeology bootleg (in much better sound quality), but other parts are unique to this disc.

Sound quality is rather bad, and yes, the pitch is incorrect, and the randomness of fragments edited together is frustrating and confusing. But what can you do?

(Answer: Re-edit and re-master this for your own.)

If you are a Smile completist, this is a must-have. Even if you have all the other Smile bootlegs.
