‘We’ll Be Rockin’ In About A Half Hour’ [no label, 2CD]
Pet Sonds Tour. NY State Fair, Chevy Court Stage, Syracuse, NY; August 29, 2016. Very good audience recording.
Katrina Tulloch, syracuse.com:
On Monday night, Brian Wilson did seem tired and a bit frail as he took the stage to perform the [Pet Sounds] album from beginning to end, but the gravity of his legendary presence endured. Like a beloved record or CD that crackles or skips, you’ll still cherish it after its prime. The Chevy Court crowd of 19,800 welcomed him with a standing ovation.
Overall, Wilson’s distinctive voice has seen better days. On “God Only Knows,” famously known as Paul McCartney’s favorite song, Wilson pulled back from the mic to sing in his upper register, straining on the words “what I’d be without you.” On “That’s Not Me,” Wilson hit most notes, but slurred a bit and dropped off entirely on higher pitches…
Onstage, Wilson acts like the silent grandpa at stereotypical family gatherings. He won’t leave his easy chair and he doesn’t say much, but he’s the patriarch the family loves, respects and celebrates. No one would be there without him.

Some phasing [just being honest because of trying to work video camera and health].
@ – Sercurity telling me to shut down the video while I was still audio recording.
# – Good Vibrations recording is substituted with my audio recording from my camera [digital internal steroe mics]. People started to stand up all over. The crowd was going crazy! Mics became unplugged.
$ – My Sony PCM-M10 internal card mics turned on automatically once my external mics became unplugged. This Source recording picks up at “Help Me Rhonda”. No music is missing.
% – My mics are plugged back in when I finally notice. At the end of “Fun Fun Fun”. Too busy trying to video.
