1
  Very possibly the session at which Murry was fired as manager.x
2
  That all these titles were recorded on this date is highly questionable. There is an AFM
  sheet for the first two titles: the information for the others is taken from less reliable
  sources.
3
  The instrumental track was recorded earlier in the day at the same studio: no Beach Boys
  were involved.
4
  Although these orchestral sessions are listed on the AFM contracts as being held at
Capitol, in fact they were recorded at United. Some of the vocals for these orchestral
tracks, notably "We Three Kings", were recorded live with the orchestra.
5
  At this show Dennis was hit by something thrown by a fan and had to leave the stage.
  He missed a few shows, Dick Peterson of the Kingsmen filling in on drums.
6
  Both shows were broadcast live by the local station, KYA.
7
  The Mugwumps included Zal Yankovsky and Cass Elliott.
8
  The Tikis included a young Ted Templeman, who clearly recalls Brian being present and
  leading the pre-show rehearsal. The Tikis later became Harpers Bizarre, who also opened
  for The Beach Boys. The date is extrapolated from a report in the Foothill Sentinel dated
  Friday 30th October which states the show took place "last Friday".
9
  The show resulted in a riot and was stopped by the police after 14 minutes.
10
  A letter to a Little Rock paper in May 1965 asked why this show was cancelled: the
  response was that one of the band was taken ill and could not perform. In light of later
  events, this could only be Brian, which raises the question - was the Tulsa show also
  cancelled ? Evidently the situation was far more involved that was previously assumed...
11
  This show was definitely cancelled, as a ticket stub for this date exists.
12
  En route to Houston, Brian breaks down on the plane: he plays the show but flies
  home the next day. Glenn flies back to Texas with the same road manager who took
  Brian home.
13
  Glen Campbell replaces Brian.
