So I've been obsessed with the Beach Boys album Holland lately. It's so good! I've been trying to puzzle out who sings what, and I found this website which has a reprint of a booklet that was released by the Beach Boys in advance of the album. The song credit stuff is at the end. Turns out that one of my favorite songs (only with you) has music by Dennis, words by Mike Love (which makes me like it less) and is sung by Carl.
The booklet has some great stuff, including this quote:
they took off for Holland where the surf's NEVER up
The story of how they built an entire huge studio and then flew it to Holland has so many insane things about it that it can't all be true. Come on, the plane was so heavy it cracked the tarmac? I don't know if I believe that.
The cover of Holland is rad. I just wish my copy had come with the Brian Wilson 45 inside.
