Mike Love & the Beatles - Spiritual Regeneration

Postby GoogaMooga » 22 Aug 2019, 04:00

:shock:

from smileysmile.net:

On 25 February, the Maharishi held a party to celebrate Harrison's 25th birthday. The event included communal chanting,[143] a sitar performance by Harrison,[100] and a firework display.[156][157] The Maharishi gave Harrison an upside-down plastic globe of the world and said: "George, the globe I am giving you symbolizes the world today. I hope you will help us all in the task of putting it right."[158] Harrison turned the globe over and said "I've done it!", and the other students applauded.[159] For Love's birthday, on 15 March, members of the Beatles and Donovan performed "Spiritual Regeneration/Happy Birthday Mike Love", a song based on the Beach Boys' "Fun, Fun, Fun". Lennon presented Love with a round handmade card containing a self-portrait of him naked, and Harrison gave him a painting of Guru Dev.


The recording of The Beatles (IIRC minus Ringo, who had returned to the U.K. by then) singing "Happy Birthday" to Mike was played on the "Best Summers Of Our Lives" multi-part Beach Boys radio series in 1976.

Oh yes ... when you don’t know what to get someone for their birthday, a nude self portrait is a good stand-by. :?

At least he didn't draw a nude portrait of Mike Love!

Let's say least have the tune on the thread. It's fun!

I agree, but they probably couldn't find the source tape, and didn't want Wolfman Jack chatting over it.
