I have a question about the multitrack for "Ding Dang," which seems plenty insignificant for this thread:

If you listen to the first "dang" in each repetition of "ding (dang) dang (woooo!)," those "dang"s are very clearly on a separate track that's briefly unmuted. You can tell because the beginning and ending of each "dang" get clipped off.

It seems like there must have been other stuff on that track right before, and right after, each "dang," and someone wanted to keep that other stuff out of the mix. So what else is on that track? Perhaps Brian reciting the long-lost lyrics to "In My Childhood"? The backing track for the second movement of "Surf's Up"? Or, far more likely, is it just the Beach Boys screwing around?

Long-time lurker, first-time poster:

Unlike many of y'all, I don't have any inside connections to the Beach Boys. I never had the honor of getting yelled at by Dr. Landy, and I couldn't pick Rocky Pamplin out of a lineup. I'm just an obsessive weirdo with upwards of $100 burning a hole in my pocket, and I want to spend it on the Feel Flows box set, even if the only new material turns out to be, I don't know, three seconds of Carl saying that he broke a string.

My hunch is that the best way to shake this thing loose is to convince the right people that they can make money off of it. (I don't mean that as a criticism! Fancy box sets are a commercial endeavor, and I doubt they'd exist if not for avarice.) But even if my hunch is correct, I don't know who the right people are, or how to convince them that there's a market.

Here's my question: What's the most effective thing I can do to help? Who needs to hear that us random fans want to buy this thing, and what's the best way to get that message across? I've signed the petition, and I'm glad it's there, but what now? Should I be writing letters to someone at Capitol, and if so, who? Is there some other specific action that I can take to help?
