Album Information Produced By Brian Wilson
All songs recorded at Western Studios

It was the first album with the credit "Produced by Brian Wilson".

Mike´s sister Maureen plays harp on Catch A Wave and In My Room.

Where Gaines screwed up in his book was in attributing the song "Surfer Girl" as being sung by Brian and his friends. "Surfer Girl" the song definitely was sung by the Beach Boys. However, parts of SURFER GIRL the album apparently were sung by Brian and his friends. This was during the short period when the touring group included both David Marks and Alan Jardine, while Brian stayed home. According to Rich Alarian, a high school friend of Brian's and a member of the Survivors, he and Bob Norberg were recruited by Brian to add backing vocals to four or five songs to finish the SURFER GIRL album while the rest of the Beach Boys were on the road.

In a 1983 interview, Alarian told Brad Elliott: "That SURFER GIRL album was done when they were in New York, when the group was in New York. At least half of that album was done at Gold Star Recording Studios while the guys were in New York, because they had a deadline to get the record out and the guys weren't here. We went in and matched the Beach Boys' sound."

There is, in fact, some evidence in the way of session documentation to support Alarian's claim.

Unfortunately we don´t know which songs. There is simply a session vaguely documented as "overdubs for Surfer Girl LP." And there's no way to tell from the session tapes, as those are long missing. So we may never know.

The original IN CONCERT album was a single disc set, not a two-record set like the one that came out. The track lineup was as follows:

Side 1:
Wouldn't It Be Nice
Leaving This Town
Heroes and Villains
You Need a Mess of Help To Stand Alone **

Side 2:
Let the Wind Blow
Do It Again **
Wild Honey **
Fun Fun Fun
Jumpin' Jack Flash **

The asterisked (**) tracks are titles that did not appear on the released version of IN CONCERT. However, even those titles that did get released were different recordings. The recordings on the original version of the album were made on the group's Winter 1972 tour (with Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille among the backing musicians), while the recordings on the released album were made on the group's Summer 1973 tour.
BTW, the live "Heroes & Villains" on ENDLESS HARMONY SOUNDTRACK is from the original version of the IN CONCERT album.
