Sweet Insanity

Unreleased album, originally due for release in 1991. The album was initially titled "Brian", but was rejected by Sire Records because they believed it to be sub-standard. The album was heavily influenced by Dr Eugene Landy, and this had a major impact on Brian's ability to produce a good album. The intended songs have appeared on numerous bootlegs. The most common bootlegs have what was probably intended as the track listing of 12 songs. These are :-

Concert Tonight
Someone To Love
Water Builds Up
Don't Let Her Know
I Do
Thank You
Hotter
Spirit Of Rock 'n' Roll, The
Rainbow Eyes
Love Ya
Make A Wish
Smart Girls

Other songs from the sessions, and included on other bootlegs are :-

Country Feeling
Daddy's Little Girl
He Couldn't Get His Poor Old Body To Move
Being With The One You Love
Metal Beach
Goodnight Irene
In My Car

The following three songs were also recorded during the sessions :-

Do You Have Any Regrets
Let's Stick Together
Save The Day

Five of the songs were re-recorded and appeared on the 2004 release, Gettin' In Over My Head. They were Don't Let Her Know, Make A Wish, Rainbow Eyes, Let's Stick Together (re-titled The Waltz), and Save The Day (re-titled Fairy Tale).
