Seaside Rendezvous? It is embarrassingly sickly sweet.
The Prophet Song - The vocal interlude is rather boring. Great song that didn't need the middle part.
The Prophet's Song is a track that's just begging for a radio edit.

But as far as Seaside Rendezvous is concerned, I think you're missing the point. It's meant to be a pastiche, a tribute to the revival jazz movement. And it was their firs, thankfully not last, attempt at proper jazz. In that respect, it's wonderful. All those fabulous sounds, such as trumpets and whistles, all come from the Red Special. Extraordinary.

If I remember correctly, the track is one that does not feature Brian. Pretty sure the trumpets, woodwind rtf are all Freddie and Roger.

Word.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the song as it is, but it’d be great to have a punchier edit with the vocal canon excised.

Someone get me the 5.1 stem mixes and the challenge is accepted.
