**
  These shows were recorded for the In Concert album.
1
  This song is not, as is often claimed, an early version of "Funky Pretty". However, having
  started out sounding like "Loop De Loop", it contains a riff Brian reused over 20 years
  later for "Chain Reaction Of Love".
2
  The first show with Blondie & Ricky as 'official' members: also the first show for Toni
  Tennille.
3
  Bruce's last 'official' Beach Boys show until August 1978
4
  Alan returns to his almer mater.
5
  Broadcast on June 28th by NBC TV as "Good Vibrations from London", with four songs
  from the BB. Elton John guested on the encore.
6
  Contrary to the long-held belief, relatively little of the Holland album was actually
  recorded there - just the basic tracks. The barn of legend was in fact a tiny commercial
  studio used for recording adverts and Christmas albums - despite the name it has no
  connection with the British TV channel.
7
  Considering the band played in the US the following day, the date for this session  may
  appear very questionable, but in fact Dutch fans who spoke with the band on this day
  confirm that it is correct: it was a very early morning session and the band flew out to
  Chicago at 1.00pm.
8
  Carl, Mike, Alan & Billy Hinsche contributed bvs to this track which was released on
  the Waves album in October.
9
  Although these session dates are clearly incompatible with the established concert dates,
  this is what the AFM sheets say, and they are included for reference: the best guess is that
  someone is misremembering by a month or so as most of the AFM sheets for the
  Holland sessions are backdated, having been filed after the band returned to the USA.
10
  This is not the same as Brian's "Hard Times", aka the 'dirty' version of "Ding Dang".
