What was the type of organ Brian used on the early albums? Does anyone know any keyboards that can replicate this sound well?

I once asked Darian about this, and his belief is that it's a standard-issue Hammond B-3.

Watching the NASCAR race from Michigan and they run a promo for the next race at Daytona. "I Get Around" is used as the background music.

Only fitting because it's accompanied by footage of cars wrecking and crashing (getting around).

I happened to catch the show "The Talk" today. Watched because Carnie W was a guest host.
One of the topics discussed was post partum depression. Carnie said that she had "post partum psychosis" after the birth of one of her daughters. She experienced auditory hallucinations, the voices telling her things such as "your child is going to die." After treatment she eventually got over it but I find it chilling considering what her father has been through.

According to Wikipedia, using Mike Love's book as a source, the band's tour of Europe in May 1967 was supposed to have four backing musicians. Does anyone know if this has ever been brought up before? Going off the tour later in 1967, the London performances in 1968, and the session musicians they used, I'm assuming they could've toured with a saxophone player, a bassist, a keyboardist, and a percussionist.

EDIT: Just found an old post by a former moderator(?) named Jason, which stated this. Does anyone know the truth/details behind this: "Carl augmented the touring group with a horn/string/keyboard section consisting of Igor Horoshevsky, Frank St. Peters, Richard Thompson, and Jim Carther for a mid-1967 European tour."

According to Ian's and Jon's book "The Beach Boys in Concert" the mini orchestra which included cellist Igor Horoshevsky debuted with the band live on April 13, 1967 in Mississippi. The British Musicians Union prevented the group from using four additional musicians in concert during their May 1967 European tour.

Yes indeed, a Derek Taylor report from Hollywood. It's the bottom half of page 193 of LLVS:

"Frank [St. Peters] plays saxophone, flute and clarinet; Chick [Jim Carther, one assumes] plays flute and sax; Richard [Thompson] dabbles in flugelhorn, harpsichord, flute, organ, saxophone and clarinet. And who's this [Igor] Horoshevsky cat? He plays cello." 

Apparently the BB's plane had "The Beach Boys and Igor" emblazoned in huge letters on the side. Grin
