 Mike Love's never happy unless he's whining about something.

 Mike Love is also apparently making noises about how he should be credited as co-writer too...

 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...

 IMO, George Harrison ripped off no one.

 "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."

 So, even the first label variations already list Arc Music (Berry's publisher) for the publishing on the A-side?

 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.

 However Allan I already added those Nick venet prod and they are clean labels except for the small X

 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.

 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?

 Tonight when I get home, I'll try and put this and other Beach Boys entries in some semblace of order...John

 Or at the very least, "Music - Chuck Berry, New Lyrics - Brian Wilson."

 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

 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
BW/BW-RC
CHUCK BERRY/BW-RC
AND NICK VENET PROD WAS REMOVED BECAUSE BRIAN WAS THE ONE WHO REALLY PROD IT.

 This is a chronological mess that needs to be straightened out.

 Another variant, the main difference being the absence of a credit for Roger Christian.

 Oh, that's West Coast all right. Bert-Co typesetting tells the story.

 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.

 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.
