Indeed. Luther is the one you want for theory. I played high school violin, but my technical knowledge peters out pretty shortly after that point. The general music knowledge stuff is easier if you read a book or two on "classical" -- and it gives you an appreciation for what the theory guys actually know! It really is a completely different ball game than pop/rock.

Frankly, Brian is probably more interesting to look at on a music theory level than the overall one I described. Because if you only know generally how music is orchestrated and arranged in a couple of contexts, it can be easy to dismiss Brian. He's not conservatory trained. He doesn't have the sheer technical chops of someone like Bacharach, for instance. But on the basic theory level -- that is, chords, voicings, the way his music is actually put together -- he is (from what I understand) pretty remarkable. I mean, even if you don't have a theory background, you can hear that something unusual and unique is going on with songs like "This Whole World" or "Til I Die."

Was 'In My Room' the only song the Beach Boys did in German or were there others?

The Beach Boys legacy is still being mortared to this day...it has a solid and unbreakable foundation of incredible songs that tower above most bands, yet some bricks are more brittle and ugly than others (even some bricks put down more recently)...thus is the nature of any entity that continues to exist. You are not defined solely by your good achievements in life, you're also defined by those unpleasant moments too. This law of life, thankfully, helps keep us all in check.

I don't think there were others. Just imagine: 'Gute Schwingungen', 'Greife Eine Welle', 'Bitte Mache Mich Neugierig', 'Würde Es Nicht Wunderbar Sein', 'Nur Der Liebe Herrgott Weiß', 'Ich Komm' Schon Mal Irgendwo', 'Ganz Hinten In Meinem Geiste', and, worst of all, 'Sommer Im Paradies'.

Yes SH, it was one of those days. BTW: I do have a CD with BBs covers in German, done by famous German cartoonist Manfred Deix and his group. If I am right, 'California Girls' is covered as 'Fesche Tyroler Mädel'... it was a bargain thingy, but I'd guess it's collectible by now.

I've always read that Come to the Sunshine was recorded for 15 Big Ones, or around that era. Can anyone tell me if Brian cut a new track for it or used VDP's original? I can't imagine this (even if 1967 or so is considered an oldie  Wink)  being meant for an oldies album, let alone no other 'psychedelic' songs involved with the album.

I picked up Endless Summer on vinyl the other day, and can't hear the difference between the duophonic mixes and Brian's mono besides when i fiddle with the balance. Am i tone-deaf?

Also, in the same shop i passed up a copy of Today! because it was a stereo mix. It would have cost me £1.50. Am i insane?

Today was never in stereo, only mono and Duophonic. The Duophonic LP doesn't sound too bad. Now, the duophonic version of Summer Days on the other hand sounds gawd-awful.

Haha, thought so. It's bizarre. Judging from what everyone says about the Duophonic, i was expecting washed out horrible-ness. It's a little like that - LHRW is 'empty' sounding - but i guess it's due to the crapness of my set up more than anything (The Don wouldn't approve, lets say). I don't doubt if i tried to listen on headphones it'd sound terrible. But yeah.

Ha. In fact, I never found Duophonic all that bad, with a qualification: via a normal stereo setup, and at a moderate level, it's quite enjoyable. But via phones I can't stand it. BTW: this is about vinyl, not CD (is there Duophonic on CD at all?).

The Japanese Pastmasters series contains two Duophonic tracks on otherwise brilliant flat transfers (sometimes mono, sometimes Chuck Britz's stereo mixes where available, I guess). I forget what the other one is but "I'm Bugged At My Ol' Man" is one of them. It definitely sounds different and annoyingly worse than the tracks surrounding it, but it's not absolutely abysmal, I guess. Then again, I'd probably feel differently if it were any other song on that album. LOL Why are some of these Pastmasters discs in stereo anyway when mono would have been vastly preferred (I'm thinking of albums like [IIRC] All Summer Long, Surfer Girl, Shut Down Vol. 2 -- mostly their pre-Today! LPs.)
