The CD of 1966's Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys. Various biographies of the Beatles almost always mention how impressed and influenced Paul McCartney was by that album, and that Sgt. Pepper would not have been created without it. Besides listening to Pet Sounds, (which I once had on vinyl at age 15) I am very much interested in seeing Love & Mercy, the bio film in current release, that has John Cusack playing Brian Wilson, the troubled musical genius who was the leader and creative force of The Beach Boys. Some of Wilson's creations, like Good Vibrations, (which is not on Pet Sounds) really caused many people to realize that The Beach Boys had evolved into a group that was much more than just a surfer themed pop/rock band.

Excellent movie! Highly recommended to all pop music fans.

Paul Dano is amazing as the younger, sensitive Brian Wilson torn between his musical genius and a band + abusive father who don't understand him. John Cusack is also commendable as the older, broken Wilson looking for love but who is held captive by a "self-help" guru, afraid to put his life back together.

Nothing against Avengers or Jurassic World, but Love & Mercy has been my favorite movie of the year so far.

DaverJ, thank you very much for your recommendation for Love & Mercy. My wife and I haven't been out to the movies since Gravity in October 2013. We would usually much prefer watching movies on Blu-ray in our home theater. But we received a movie gift card this past Christmas, and I was thinking we might finally use it to see a purely entertaining, popcorn type of entertainment, like Jurassic World, because I wasn't sure that we would both like Love & Mercy. However, your capsule review has encouraged me to seek the nearest theater showing Love & Mercy. Also, although she was never into the music of The Beach Boys, I was forgetting that my wife, like a lot of women, would generally prefer a film about relationships to one about marauding dinosaurs.

Anyhow, thanks again DaverJ.

Hope that you and yours all enjoy a fun and safe 4th of July, and weekend. And, good movie watching to you.

The Late Chris Squire Always Laid Down A Strong Foundation For The Music of Yes

DaverJ, I had not known about the passing of Chris Squire, and had somehow missed your post until this minute. Am going to put Owner Of a Lonely Heart on, at high volume, (which is the only way to play it!) in honor of the memory of Mr Squire and his contributions to music.

I only saw Yes in concert one time. That was in the summer of 1971 at the newly built Wildwood Convention Hall, in Wildwood, New Jersey.

The main act performing that night in Wildwood was Jethro Tull, but Yes also gave a terrific show in opening for Ian Anderson and his crew. And though my friends and I were then unfamiliar with the band, what Yes did that night sure made us take notice. And since Tull lived up to our expectations, what those 2 bands did in Wildwood, easily made it the best concert I ever attended, and well worth the 185 mile drive home to Levittown, New York, which didn't begin til we got out of the parking lot, well after 1:00 in the morning. In looking up the appearance of these 2 bands with Google, I was amazed to see that what we paid for tickets for that July 9th 1971 concert, was either $5 or $6. And Jethro Tull was extremely popular at the time, as Aqualung, the biggest selling album that Jethro Tull was to ever have, had been in release for 4 months, when that concert was held.

It's just amazing to see what prices for concert tickets used to be. The newspaper ads for rock concerts at Wildwood Convention Hall for the summer of 1971 are certainly eye openers. Elton John was very hot in the music business at that time, and tickets for the 2 shows he performed on August 27th were just $5.50. Tickets for all the other summer concerts in Wildwood were either $5, $6, or $5.50, but never higher than $6, and included such bands as Steppenwolf, Black Sabbath, Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, The Fifth Dimension, Ten Years After, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer, as well as singers Bobby Sherman and Leon Russell.

So today, here in Northeast Ohio, it blows my mind to know that our granddaughter has attended Katy Perry and Lady Gaga concerts in basketball arenas with lousy acoustics, and the best tickets went for $200, and even higher. Well, like it is often said, things sure change. I'm just not always so thrilled about many of those kinds of changes, but I sure love advances in video and audio technology. Guess you really do have to just relax and accept the bad with the good.

Anyway, I sure hope that all of my fellow AVS members have a safe and very enjoyable July 4th, and weekend.
