Recordholic 19th Mar 2016 Mike Love's never happy unless he's whining about something. Klepsie 11th Mar 2016 Mike Love is also apparently making noises about how he should be credited as co-writer too... Recordholic 11th Mar 2016 Brian Wilson is the one that truly got ripped off on this song. The music is derived from "Sweet Little Sixteen", so Chuck Berry was awarded songwriting credits, but clearly, Chuck did NOT write any of the lyrics of this song. It should've been credited to Berry - Wilson... RecordDragon 11th Mar 2016 IMO, George Harrison ripped off no one. laviolet 11th Mar 2016 "Surfin' U.S.A." made the top of WatchMojo.com's list of "Top 10 Rip-off Songs." George Harrison was runner-up for "My Sweet Lord."
VIDEO Recordholic 9th Oct 2015 So, even the first label variations already list Arc Music (Berry's publisher) for the publishing on the A-side? RecordDragon 8th Oct 2015 B-side mono version
VIDEO Louval 1st Sep 2015 VIDEO TOKENHIPPIE 14th Apr 2014 Surfin' U.S.A. sheet music is indeed rare. and there is no Shut Down sheet music that i'm aware of. but this is one instance where I wish someone would prove me wrong. i would welcome it. allan0318 2nd Aug 2012 I noticed that Hippie. Good job! Just wanted to make sure mine were the same. You are my idol. :) TOKENHIPPIE 2nd Aug 2012 However Allan I already added those Nick venet prod and they are clean labels except for the small X allan0318 2nd Aug 2012 Thanks! U R da BOMB W.B.lbl 2nd Aug 2012 Sho' iz, as they say . . . allan0318 2nd Aug 2012 Okay experts...is mine a first pressing Scranton? TOKENHIPPIE 2nd Aug 2012 YEP You got the list right that's the order it should be. but the images do not correspond to the chronological list. and yes i have an LA press from ebay I bid and lost but i have the photocopy of NV prod LA press.I'll put it on shortly. W.B.lbl 1st Aug 2012 The order's the way I like it - the Scrantons first, the L.A.'s afterward. Ever saw a first-pressing L.A. copy with Nick Venet producer's credit? BEATLEJOHN 1st Aug 2012 I think I got this right....John BEATLEJOHN 1st Aug 2012 Tonight when I get home, I'll try and put this and other Beach Boys entries in some semblace of order...John W.B.lbl 1st Aug 2012 Or at the very least, "Music - Chuck Berry, New Lyrics - Brian Wilson." TOKENHIPPIE 1st Aug 2012 It should not have been correctly credited to Chuck Berry only as Brian Wilson wrote the lyrics, not Chuck Berry. It should have been Correctly credited as Chuck Berry and Brian Wilson TOKENHIPPIE 1st Aug 2012 I just uploaded the Nick venet prod first press thin font from my collection. it has an X mark from radio station. BW is credited only on both sides.
Here it is in chronological order
BW/BW NICK VENET PROD
BW/BW WITHOUT NICK VENET PROD
AND NICK VENET PROD WAS REMOVED BECAUSE BRIAN WAS THE ONE WHO REALLY PROD IT. TOKENHIPPIE 1st Aug 2012 This is a chronological mess that needs to be straightened out. LaurenceD 12th Jun 2012 Another variant, the main difference being the absence of a credit for Roger Christian. W.B.lbl 7th Apr 2012 Oh, that's West Coast all right. Bert-Co typesetting tells the story. musictom 7th Apr 2012 I scanned another copy with slightly different labels. This is probably a west coast pressing, as I bought it on the west coast but there are few markings in the dead wax. W.B.lbl 31st Mar 2012 Very first issues (not shown here at this point) show Nick Venet as producer on both sides; for some reason this was withdrawn on later pressings.
