About

From the liner notes:

Brian Wilson wrote the song “Vegatables” (with Van Dyke Parks) for the famous “SMiLE” album, planned for 1967, but due to the cancellation of “SMiLE”, it was released in a much toned-down form on “Smiley Smile” instead, (with Al Jardine and Brian Wilson on lead vocals) with one section cut out and later reused as “Mama Says” on the album “Wild Honey”.

Paul McCartney was in the studio when Brian Wilson was mixing this song, he just walked in and joined Brian at the console. And, briefly, the two most influential musical Geminis in the world had a chance to work together – you can hear him in the background munching on celery (used instead of traditional percussion) and saying something like ‘Good take, Al‘.

In 1993, the previously unreleased original version of Vegetables was released along with a slew of other “SMiLE” material on the “Good Vibrations” box-set. In 2004, the song was included on Brian Wilson’s new release of “SMiLE”. This most recent recording was based on the original version, rather than the minimalist arrangement that appears on Smiley Smile.
