SMiLE Track-By-Track IV: Barnyard

After the expansive and thought-provoking Roll Plymouth Rock, the album lightens up as we go to the country and explore an animal Barnyard. In the Americana context, the importance of the farms is probably the link here. It’s possible that the animal noises that the band had to make may have put them off SMiLE, but in the released version and shows, Brian’s band seem to enjoy the humor in making the animal sounds.
