Gary Usher had Brian's permission to record the song. So he started the Hondells-project with the help of Nick Venet, who was staff producer over at Mercury at the time. Little Honda was cut July 27, 1964 at Capitol Records Studio with Gary Usher as session leader and producer

Time to return to this fine topic...

The Who were arguably at their most psychedelic on Sell Out, and the most psychedelic track on that album has to be "Armenia, City In The Sky". (This is when Jay steps in and tells me I'm talking nonsense. LOL )

I actually agree completely.  Grin I often think of "Sell Out" as their psychedelic album and period. Another contender might be the outtake "Melancolia". I'm still trying to come up with a hypothetical post Sell Out but pre Tommy album, by the way.
"Melancolia" has always been one of my favorite Who tracks. By the way the new album is due at the beginning of December

The studio version of We Got Love actually made it on to some German pressings of HOLLAND.
Some hundreds were pressed and then withdrawn, when the mistake was noticed
The same happened with the German Help me Rhonda and California Saga 45s, first pressing had the Today/album version of the songs - this was rectified with the secong pressing.

8  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys Brother/Reprise mono/stereo 45 RPM singles questions on: April 14, 2016, 10:44:35 AM
One of them was Add Some Music/Susie Cincinnati , both in mono. As is known, SC's mono mix placed the started-up car sound in a different place than the 15 Big Ones stereo mix. 
...and "Add some.." had the string overdubs missing.

Finally found this one !   Smiley

11  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Gary S. Paxton on: March 10, 2016, 01:44:08 PM
Was it just those singles that were produced by him or the entire album?
The entire album - he engineered it too
12  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Gary S. Paxton on: March 09, 2016, 06:40:09 AM
Wow, very cool. Didn't realize he'd produced The Gosdin Brothers and Tommy Roe's A Winter's Day.
Winter's Day was credited to Steve Clark (but Paxton actually was the man in charge), voc.arr. were done by Curt Boettcher

15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Who is/are Celebration (band) on: February 06, 2016, 01:30:11 AM
the core of Celebration were ex-members of KING HARVEST (of Dancing In The Moonlight fame)
Ron Altbach later became heavily involved  with the BB (as producer, arranger and tour keyboard player), his tribute to the BB ("Beach Boys Suite"), recorded in 1979,  was never officially released.
Paul Fauerso produced Mike Love's First Love solo album.

A couple of years ago Stephen McParland wrote his biography with an extensive discography - out of print now but well worth picking up:

Add Some Music fanzine - Cunningham
Friends Of The Beach Boys fanzine - Taber (Cancelled subscription after 1rst issue)
Endless Summer Quarterly fanzine - Mast, Edgil, Dempsey
Beach Boys Stomp fanzine - Grant

No, I didn't subscribe to that one. I never subscribed to Stomp either, though later on I read a few back-issues. I think there was/is a German fanzine too.
"California Saga" which folded a couple of years ago after a run of more than 30 years
