My only tape from Holland: 

   


This cracks me up.  Yup, that is definitely an album.

This was a Dutch follow up Best Of comp, after a release called "The Definite Album". So the name choise isn't that strange. The tracklist is though, only containing songs from the Sunflower and Surf's Up albm.

Picked up an interesting "Beach Boot" 8trk the other day. Will post some pics later.
It has tracks from Surfs Up. and even plays.  Wink

Hey Little Tomboy is creepy. Banging women by the pool is fun and conjures up warm summer thoughts a Beach Boys song should.

As in what do I want to find?  ( Most of what I'd like to find, I'm not certain really exist)

Cuz I don't have any other great 8 finds lately to post ( almost two years since the last post in this thread)

How about starting a new thread posting photos of your 4 tracks?  Was 20/20 the last BB album to be released on 4 Track?  Or maybe Good Vibrations?  Or is it possible that some 4 track cartridges of Sunflower exist?

  I did that!  Only it was back in October 2011; Sunflower is the last 4 track( shown) that I've found.    http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,11345.0.html
     
  I also did Playtapes( even though you didn't ask)     http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,9862.0.html

never have done cassettes....

Capitol Record Club Sunflower and Surf's Up?  Note the TA 6xxxxx catalog number for Sunflower.  Not sure whether the 9xxxx number for Surf's Up is the standard 8-track catalog number or not.

Black shell versions of Shut Down, Vol. II and Surfer Girl with the Capitol dome logo.


But interestingly, the back shells have the Capitol "C" logo:

YES!!!!!!  Capitol Club Tapes Definitely.  
I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO JEALOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    
Those are incredible finds.  

I wonder if I'll ever get lucky and find copies....  

And yes, the TA catalog number on Surfs Up is The Capitol club ## 93920. Tho the Sunflower number is very strange. I wonder why they used a 6xxxx series.  

You want to part with these? ( he said dreamingly)

Stand-alone versions of Good Vibrations - Best of the Beach Boys, and Holland:
 

  Just checked to find I do have this Holland version, but NOT the GV Best Of.  You just gotta love variations!! 
Got to be more diligent in searching these variations!!

And maybe I missed it, but I didn't see '69 Live in London:  
 

You are correct, I didn't post a pic. 

Wand release of the Hite Morgan tapes, and another Pickwick title:
 

You've got me with all of these great pics !
Don't know if I didn't have these two when I posted the other pics, or if I just blanked on them! ( because I definitely have them sitting on the shelves)   

Black shell versions of Shut Down, Vol. II and Surfer Girl with the Capitol dome logo.

But interestingly, the back shells have the Capitol "C" logo:


  There are probably other variations of the Capitol tapes previously posted, that are also not shown.  Just as with Lps and 45s, there are variations

I don't understand you point about the "C" Logos, tho. Is it on the actual shells, as I don't see it anywhere else?  
OH!  Now I see those logos at the top of the carts. They're hard to spot being black on black

If I recall, the 6xxxx denoted a release on a label within the Capitol family, and the 9xxxx denoted a release on another label.  Maybe someone didn't get the memo that the Beach Boys had left Capitol...

Yes, that makes sense(What an idiot I am!!!   I've got two Club tapes pictured as the last post on  Page 1, 63090 and 63160)

Hi guys, I adore this and associated thread (and the pics) from a few years ago - It's facinating as us Brits never really harnessed the 8 Track format

Alright!!   (This might be too anal for some, so don't look if it bothers you...) If you want to also all the Beatles 8 tracks, visit Frank daniels super site here:
http://www.friktech.com/btls/tapes/8tks.pdf  
This description is taken from his site and applies generally, to the Beach Boys also:
>>Starting August 13, 1966, Capitol's earliest eight tracks had white shells. By 1969, they had determined that the machines left marks on the tapes, so they made black‐shelled eight tracks for their stereo eight tracks afterward. In April, 1969, Capitol announced that they had redesigned the tape slicks so as to put all of the information on the front slick. Some of Capitol's eight tracks were prepared with Lear's "Lear Jet" cartridges, while some were assembled with Audiopak cartridges, made by Audio Devices, Inc., a Capitol Industries subsidiary. Later (70's) eight tracks simply state that they were manufactured by Capitol, with no mention of other licensing<<

Chris, thanks for the link to the 4 track photos.  I do recall the PlayTape thread, (and posted some questions in it), but had missed the four track photos and discussion.

And thanks again to you and Lee for the 8 track photos in this thread.

Next up, how about reel to reel tapes?

I've personally never ever seen a Beach Boys LearJet cart( also called Flat-paks--credited to yours truly) so  the first BBs 8 tracks Capitol released were white Audiopak carts with red( Concert and the twofer-LDC/SD2 had greengreen) back/end labels...

Chris, here's a white-shell 20/20 without the Audiopak notation on the back, and a different shell shape than the Audiopaks:



Is this a Lear?
