The story of Stars & Stripes:
Brian had trouble getting cooperation about doing the "Paley/Wilson" material. Melinda loved Willie Nelson's voice and was a fan of his. She suggested to Brian that perhaps Willie would do a good job on the song Warmth Of The Sun. David Leaf was asked or volunteered to make the deal with Willie's people and pave the way. He did so, with Brian to do production and backing vocal work. Mike Love caught wind of the proposed collaboration. He approached Bri and Mel through BRI about the BBs doing a whole album, and using an MOR/AC co producer named Joe Thomas, who had, had some success, reviving old rock n rollers, fading careers. The idea was to use BB songs and various c/w/ac artists with the "boys" on backing vocals. The deals were "cut" and so was the cd. The rest is history.

The Don Was stuff and the first country session happened around the same time, fall of 1995 or so ("Baywatch Nights" was a few months earlier). It jumped pretty quickly from Don Was sessions to Joe Thomas sessions.
