Pop's lost masterpiece

The composer sat impassively as his humour came to the fore, notably when the musicians made barnyard noises and forsook instruments for toys. But great waves of harmonies or a sudden burst of Palm Court strings would send the music charging off in another direction, each one seemingly more diverting than the last. The string and horn players donned firemen's hats for Fire, just as Wilson had invited their predecessors to do in 1967, and the whole piece ended in triumph with the churning chorale, juddering cellos and whooshing theremin of Good Vibrations, which can never in its long life have been engulfed in a more ecstatic reception.
God Bless Brian Wilson !

What a great human being.


Any chance we could get a recording of this anytime soon ? ? ? ?


[Thanks Richard for the pointer]
