Fall Breaks...and Back to Mixing!

What I love about helping compile and create these sets is that we can take this music out of time, separate it from the concept of the album and reposition it into the ERA. "We" don't necessarily need it -- but the new converts need and use it for context. To many, this is how they're being introduced to this music -- Jiggy Flows did that perfectly. Now, maybe some new/younger fans can't tell the difference these days between what's Jiggy Flows and what's Jiggy and the Passions -- but is that the WORST thing? Them hearing it and sharing it and discussing it is the BEST thing.

This is all an outgrowth of the influx of new "blood" from the Jiggy22 Presents Smile fan base (huge tip of the hat to SaltyMarshmallow -- we're really where we're at today because of him and Sloop.) 1 year on, these sets give us a chance to reposition the camera in a way that -- I feel -- illuminates some tracks in a more direct and succinct way. I was insistent early on that the stereo mixes from Smiley Smile should be mixed down to their bare essence, for the basic reason that I'm pretty confident that they'll get Apple Music™ and blog placements with the more natural mix.

That's how this stuff lives on and grows beyond us loving it and passing it along single google drive link to friends and family. I think the fact that this stuff was NOT played in rotation next to "China Grove" and Skynyrd will ultimately be its saving grace. I think this stuff is poised to be devoured NOW.

That said, would've loved to have fit the L.A. version of "Here Comes the Night" on to this one. . .

Jiggy22 Presents Smile

Although SonicLoveNoize and Seltaeb have some incredible works that still remain long downloaded, you really couldn't say they trump the newest released product. The sheer QUALITY of BB's material, and we're talking mixes from audacity to master -- all the layers -- to my knowledge (and I've done deep dives through more than a few links) is unprecedented. No other band has what the Beach Boys have. You look at major bands -- Elton, The Band, The Monkees -- there's NO FANMIXERS there. In some cases these fanmixers were stretching just to get enough material to fill a single disc. TONS of filler.

Personally, if I owned these masters, I would do a 15-25 disc DUMP of all of this unreleased (1966-1971) material. Redefine the fanmixing fandom like the UNSURPASSED MASTERS SERIES did in '99. There wouldn't be a single music rag, blog, or website that wouldn't automatically give it JIGGY FLOWS-like press. You wouldn't have to read about BB's music remixes on dead blogspot websites. Real press would EAT IT UP. Film and TV placements would follow, moving the narrative past the tents, bedroom years, and shittily-written Mike Love Rolling Stone articles. With so little effort, EVERYTHING could change.

And all because of fanmixers.

Jiggy and the Passions - "So Tough to Mix!"


I was walking to pick my kids up the other day and blasting Jiggy and the Passions on shuffle and "Beatrice from Baltimore" came on. Now, I've always preferred the Jiggy Flows version of the tune and I find myself only really listening to Carl and the Passions in the fall and winter -- it's never been summer music for me. But with it being the first unofficial stereo remix, I let it play through. Now, this was just a gorgeous New England winter day. We don't really get many anymore, for years it's felt like it goes from January to February. But hearing that bombastic bridge/B-section -- the fiddle, the ring modulator, mixed with the perfect temperature, dead trees, and limbo-like coldness -- my heart just exploded. It was LITERALLY "the thing." It took me RIGHT to that place. The place where there's joy, and hope, and you can't help but look and DWELL on the bright side. Just ZENITH Beach Boys heaven.

After all these years, that's never happened with me and that song until the other day and THIS comp. Perfect timing.
Jiggy and the Passions - "So Tough to Mix!" is amazing and done with love -- and I am THRILLED with it.
Some stuff may not be for everyone -- and GOOD; I'd loathe to live in a world where we were all the same.

This is the deal, it's anyone's prerogative to have and voice opinions on ANYTHING, but I've found that the people who do -- and do so negatively, often and VOCIFEROUSLY (usually with an ugly and personal bent) do it because NO ONE asks THEM their opinion. The unseen seem to either remain invisible -- or choose to spread ugliness (e.g. "Jiggy is bad. . . Jiggy is wrong. . .  I hate jiggy. . . )

I'm SO LUCKY that with the work I do, I'm part of a team of fanmixers that aims to spread the goodness, instead of feeling so left out and unseen that I need to spit and curse loudly in the street to prove I'm actually here.

That would break my heart.

Have a GREAT 2023 everybody -- thanks for all the love and well wishes we've been getting on the set.
It's the best music.
