Meaningless post, really. I was looking at some Google Earth images of Paradise Cove, where the cover to SS (and Surfer Girl) were shot. Based on the rather high bluffs along the beach there, is it possible that if the Surfin' Safari cover was taken today, it would be nearly identical, in terms of background?  Anyone familiar with the area?

Interesting, if indeed the case, given the massive development of SOCAL in the last 50 plus years.

This page tracks modern (relatively) locations for both the PS and Surfin' Safari album covers:

Also, Paradise Cove was spared by the recent fire in Malibu.
