x
1
  A sweetening session for the TV special version.
2
  Brian inducted Leiber & Stoller, and performed an impromptu version of "On Broadway".
  Allegedly it was this that caused Sire records boss Seymour Stein to offer him an LP deal
  on the spot.
3
  The band performed "The Little Old Lady From Pasadena".
4
  Brian wasn't at this session.
5
  Brian co-presented the Producer of the Year award with Michael McDonald.
6
  Produced by Gary Usher, Mike, Alan, Brian & Bruce added vocals to the existing Fat
  Boys tape. Something must have happened later on, as the only audible BB voice on the
  released version is Brian...
7
  The song was co-written, and the sessions produced, by Carl.
8
  Although present, Brian didn't perform.
9
  Alan was ill, and absent from these shows. Brian replaced him.
10
  Roger McGuinn appeared with the band.
11
  This was a Brian Wilson session, as opposed to a session for Brian Wilson. The song
  was released on a Woody Guthrie/Leadbelly tribute CD.
12
  This was in fact the first of a three week series of sessions for the song.
13
  Carl was absent, allegedly due to his upcoming wedding to Gina Martin.
