The Japanese Pastmasters series has a few duophonic tracks. For instance, the Pastmasters "All Summer Long" CD is in stereo, except for "I Get Around" & "All Summer Long" which are duophonic. I can't remember if 'Our Favorite Recording Sessions" is mono or duophonic, though.

Oh, sh*t, "I Get Around" and "All Summer Long" are Duophonic too? I don't have them with me right now to listen -- and I mostly listen to the singles box set versions anyway, as is most sensible -- but that is still disappointing if it's true. At least from Today! onwards they seemed to get it right as I think everything up to Friends (duh) is proper Brian-mix mono!

Aren't the twofers of those early records in Britz-stereo? I hate Britz stereo... I find it really hard to listen to them, which is a shame as the only time i'll be able to hear them in mono is when i chance upon a dusty vinyl copy somewhere.

Wouldn't the recent mono boom (First the beatles, now Dylan) be ample cause to re-release Brian's mono mixes of these records? Please??

The Pastmasters series are like the original albums were. Capitol sent the tape reels of the original albums. SD, vol.2 and  ASL orignally had some non-stereo tracks.

When Summer Days was sent, Capitol sent the 10 track mono re-issue over. Later after the error, they sent the duophonic versions of Amusement Parks USA and IBAMOM. Once in Japan, they folded down the duophonics to mono, and that is why those two tracks sound so terrible.

The Pastmasters Series were all Mono from Today through Wild Honey. Like they did in the US, Surfin' USA through All Summer Long were done using the stereo masters; hence the duophonic tracks where no stereo was available. The Pastmasters series was done 4 years before (1987-1988) the US CD's came out. By the time of the US releases, the mono tracks had replaced the duophonic ones.

I may be incorrect saying this, but I believe that "Do It Again" on the "Friends-20/20" 2-fer is the only fake stereo track on any USA released CD.

What songs on the GV boxed set were brand new to fans? basically, what songs that were "previously unreleased" on the set were actually never booted?

Same goes for the Endless Harmony soundtrack and Hawthorne CA?

This is top of the head stuff, and always bear in mind that there are varying degrees of circulation of 'archive' recordings, hence what is new to A might be old news to B. That said (and not including sessions or stero/acapella/track remixes)...

Box set:
"Surfin' USA" demo
"Little Surfer Girl"
"Punchline"
"Things We Did Last Summer"
"4th Of July"
"In My Room" demo

Endless Harmony:
"Soulful Old Man Sunshine" (both versions)
"Heroes And Villains" live
"Do It Again" demo
"Sail Plane Song"

Hawthorne CA:
"Little Deuce Coupe" demo
"A Time To Live In Dreams"
"Lonely Days"

As ever, corrections please.

One question I have is, the Surfin' USA demo on the GV boxed, just Brian on piano was unreleased, so what about the Surfin' USA demo on Hawthorne CA, that includes drums; is this the same recording with just drums added or a different take?


I'd also like to ask if any of the bonus tracks on the twofers were unbooted? What about the Beach Boys Rarities that came out in the early 80s? (the one with the girl on the cover that contains those ridiculous BB Hits/Ballad Medleys)
What about the BW88 reissued bonus tracks?

That was my first thought but I wasn't sure why he would take lead. Give him something to do since he couldn't drum?

He sang lead on the song regularly during that time. I think from 1971 to 1974.

I think there's a fair amount of rotation between Al, Carl, & Dennis during that period.  My guess would be that Dennis probably has the most leads.  Why?  He's said in interviews that he just loved to sing it.

This makes HMR the BB song that has had most different BB lead vocalists, right? Al (original), Carl and Dennis during this time, Al and Mike on Knebworth and Brian nowadays.

Anywho, the only people who like these dorks are 9 year old little girls and Bruce Johnston!
