Well...apparently I must have lived in a different universe when I was a teenager. Back in 1990 before I had a CD player, I was borrowing records and tapes from the public library (where I worked) and making copies for myself. We had Surfin' USA on cassette -- the '80s version missing "Stoked" and "Surf Jam." But I saw that another library in our system had it on vinyl with all tracks intact, so I requested it through interlibrary loan. It was a mono pressing. And I *swear* it had the orange/yellow swirl label (NOT the 1976 label that's yellow with orange text, but the swirl). I thought it was odd because I knew from my Beatles obsession that back then Capitol albums used the black label with the rainbow rim.

Also, our library had not one but two copies of The Beach Boys' Christmas Album on vinyl. One of them (stereo) *also* had the orange-yellow swirl label.

I was hoping of all places to find some evidence that this happened...it'd be here at Discogs. But nope.

I know of instances of other record companies running out of album labels due to high demand so they fulfilled needs with single labels, but man....I just want someone to corroborate those two instances I saw of the single label on the albums...or at least believe me. :)

This is incorrectly listed as a "reissue" when , in fact, it was the very first cassette issue of that album, circa 1969-1970. It was part of the second set of beach boys cassettes issued, the first being pet sounds , today, and smiiley smile, issued in 1968 .. Afterwards the releases came out in running releases, but it's possible to date them by whether they have the "target" logo and the stripes on the spine.. if so, they date from late '69 to early '70, such as in here.

Although this has probably been mastered from SACD source I was pleasantly surprised by the good sound quality. I would recommend this pressing as good quality originals are hard to find.

Fixed. By the way, do you have any idea which release goes along with these Side A and Side B Matrix/Runout codes (the ones I just removed)?

Barcode and Other Identifiers

Matrix / Runout (A Side Label): T1-1890
Matrix / Runout (B Side Label): T2-1890
Matrix / Runout (A Side [Stamped]): T 1 - 1890 - T 6 #2 IAM[Δ]
Matrix / Runout (B Side [Stamped]): T 2 - 1890 - T 6 #2 IAM[Δ]

If you know, thanks in advance.

Found this in strangely pristine shape. Great record nevertheless! Good introduction to 60s surf music. A nice fast and thorough album.
