How it really got to my soul

Didnít Carl do the vocal arrangements on this?

If so, it's surely the only time Carl did this kind of vocal arrangement - his others are more "conventional", if you will, and not really BW-like.

I feel I Can Hear Music, especially the a capella break, was pretty Brian-like. 
Bruce did the vocal arrangement for ICHM and Mike came up with his bass part. Arranging vocals was never really Carl's area.
But he must have made some arrangements? Trader for example?

Sure, and I think he was largely responsible for All This is That too. When it came to arranging vocals without Brian though it'd usually be a case of all the band members contributing ideas or calling on Bruce if they needed a Brianesque harmony stack.

Yeah, all the little vocal twists & turns within "Marcella" scream of it being a Brian arrangement, although the other guys may have thrown in an idea or two.

Speaking of group vocal arrangements, anyone notice how, on the 1985 Beach Boys LP, all of the Brian songs come with a credit reading, "Vocals arranged by Brian Wilson and The Beach Boys", while none of the other tracks have a vocal arrangement credit?  I'm guessing Landy wanted to ensure that the world knew Brian was really back, and arranging harmonies. Since he only did so on his numbers, and since the other guys also contributed to those arrangements, a compromise was reached that resulted in the credits reading the way they do. Just my guess.

Interesting. 

On the Brian songs from the 1985 album, I wonder which of the vocal ideas were Brian's, and which were the Boys.
I've always been slightly perplexed, not knowing whether I like it or hate it, regarding the "whoah-oh-whoah-ohhh-HOOO" part on "Crack at Your Love" - it's one of those parts that just seems hokey to me, but now I've learned to sort of feel neutral about it.

I quite dig the other backing vocals on the rest of that song though.

That part seems like a Brian idea to me. If not, then I would guess it to be an Al idea.

I think you're right.

Considering Billy Hinsche is probably sitting at home with time on his hands and has been active with his Facebook gigs, has anyone with an account (never been interested myself) actually thought of just asking him?

Finally got a response from Billy Hinsche: ďI canít tell you definitively if I sang on Marcella but itís certainly a possibility. Iím working on my next show which should be a lot of fun so hope you can tune in Saturday night at 7 PM Pacific. Bye for now, BillyĒ
