BRIAN & CARL'S NON-BEACH BOYS PRODUCTIONS
  The Beach Boys were not the only act Brian produced, although they were the only successful one - astonishingly, not a single one of his extramural efforts so much as bubbled under the Hot 100 (although The first Honeys 45 did make #1 - in Sweden). Listed below are all of Brian Wilson's known released non-BB or solo productions (and here seems as good a place as any to note that, despite what many reference books and articles say - even today - The Survivors were not The Beach Boys using an alias: they were Brian, Bob Norburg, Dave Knowlen, Rich Petersen and possibly Mark Groseclose). Where the title is suffixed by an asterisk (*), he is credited as co-producer: a single side in italics denotes that it was produced by someone else. The notes at the bottom give further details. Carl was the only other band member who produced outside of the group environment - his entries here are distinguished by a different background color.
 
  In February 2003, after the release the preceding June in Japan of a 19 track compilation, a Brian Wilson productions collection was finally released in the UK. Pet Projects - The Brian Wilson Productions (Ace CDHCD 851) contained the 23 single sides highlighted in blue below (the Jan & Dean version of "Vegetables" is incorrectly listed as by the Laughing Gravy).

  Notes
1
  Safari 101 was a one-shot label, apparently formed just for the purposes of this release: certainly it has Murry
  Wilson's Hawthorne home address on the label. Bob is Bob Norburg, Brian's roommate in the Crenshaw
  Apartments at the time. Sheri was his dance partner, Cheryl Pomeroy.
2
  Co-produced with Nik Venet.
3
  Although Brian is credited as co-composer on the A side only, both songs are essentially the same melody.
4
  The A side was later reworked and released by The Beach Boys as "Darlin'".
5
  Bob is, again, Bob Norburg, the co-producer. The story goes that Brian had a chance meeting with him and
  took over the project as a sort of favor. Brian's involvement in the B side is documented by an AFM sheet,
  that of the A side being anecdotal: however, there are times when the male voice on both sides sounds awfully
  like him... According to a reliable researcher, Bobby was Jane Canada, who later released a few solo singles.
6
  The track "Italia" - an Alan Jardine composition - is an uncredited Brian production.
7
  Co-produced with Ron Wilson, who is not the drummer of The Surfaris. It's a pretty safe bet that he's the
  R. Wilson credited as composer of "We're Together Again".
8
  Co-produced with David Sandler.
9
  Co-produced with Dean Torrence.
10
  Co-produced with Stephen Desper (A side) and Desper & Sandler (B side).
11
  Brian is credited as executive producer for the whole album, and as co-producer with Desper, Sandler or
  Desper & Sandler on 11 of the album's 12 tracks (Sandler producing the other one). The album was
  reissued on CD in 1988 with four bonus tracks; the 1973 single and "Had To Phone Ya" & "It's Like
  Heaven", previously only available on the It's Like Heaven fan release (see below).
12
  Co-produced with Billy Hinsche.
13
  Although uncredited, Brian produced the basic track and vocal sessions for "Be My Baby"
14
  This album was a fan-subscription release originating in Sweden with Marilyn Wilson's complete co-
  operation. Pressed on pink vinyl, it contained ten previously unreleased tracks from the period 1973-78,
  including the original "Had To Phone Ya" (1973, co-produced with Sandler) and the late seventies Brian
  productions "Romeo & Juliet", "It's Like Heaven", "Don't Be Cruel" and "Do Ya". It also remains the only
  release of the Sandler-produced "Snowflakes".
15
  This CD was the first commercial release of most of the material on the It's Like Heaven album, with the
  exception of "Snowflakes". It also contains all the 1960s Honeys single sides, with one exception all
  remixed into stereo.
16
  Includes Brian's previously unreleased 1968 production of "Time To Get Alone" for Redwood, as they
  were then called.
17
  Two tracks, "'Til I Die" & "Everything I Need", co-produced with Joe Thomas.
18
  Brian produced this album with Steve Kalinich in 1969: the bonus track, "Leaves Of Grass" is not the version
  produced by Carl in 1968.
