  November
Mike Love solo albums
Given that the band were under severe pressure to deliver their first album for Caribou, this might seem a strange time for Mike to attempt a solo career, much less record two albums simultaneously, but this is exactly what he did. During November and December at Santa
Barbara Sound he worked with two producers, Paul Fauerso on First Love and Al Perkins on Country Love. Further details of the albums are to be found here.

1
  This show was filmed, and shown at least once on New Zealand TV.
2
  One of these shows was filmed by Channel 7 (Melbourne) and aired on May 10th as
  "Good Vibrations from The Meyer Bowl".
3
The infamous show where Carl was totally out of it. The following day, at a press
  conference he apologised, explaining he had taken medication for a back problem and
  had a drink on top of it. Not exactly true: with his marriage disintegrating, Carl had
  developed a sizeable drink and heroin habit, and this wasn't the only show where he was
  visibly in an altered state. As all the shows on this tour were filmed, it's interesting to
  consider that he may have seen this show and decided to clean up his act.
4
  This show was filmed: two songs ("In My Room" & "You Are So Beautiful") were
  used in the American Band video.
5
  Brian, Carl and Jan & Dean guested: photos and clippings of this concert form the sleeve
  of the 2nd Celebration album.
6
  For this TV appearence, Brian 'joined' Celebration.
7
  This show - which would have been the first ever rock festival in the USSR, would have
  featured two Russian bands and was to have produced an album and a documentary -
  was postponed a month from early June, then cancelled a week before the revised date.
  The sole reason given was that the script submitted to the Russian authorities contained
  "historical imprecisions". However, the same authorities apparently neglected to tell
  anyone in Leningrad that the show was off, resulting in some 20,000 fans turning up on
  July 4th. Understandably they weren't best pleased and refused to leave the square,
  resulting in several arrests.
8
  This would appear to the the last session at Brother before it was sold to Tom Scott &
  Hank Cicalo.
9
  Rain delays added to the length of this event and caused the show in Charleston WV to be
  cancelled.
10
  Either on, or very shortly after this date, a tape was compiled for CBS boss Walter
  Yetnikoff to hear what his $8.5 million investment in the band had bought. The songs on
  the tape (oddly dated August 28th) were a mixture of Criteria recordings - "California
  Feeling", "Brian's Back" & "Calendar Girl" - and material recorded earlier in LA at
  Brother and Western: "Baby Blue" (the Bambu version), "Looking Down The
  Coast/Monterey" & "Santa Ana Winds" (original version). Legend has it that Yetnikoff's
  reaction was to say "Gentlemen, I think I've just been fucked" (and for that amount of
  money, could you blame him ?). Certainly, Bruce Johnston was invited to produce the
  sessions very shortly thereafter.
11
  A Brian solo session: not for the faint of heart or easily offended.
12
  The footage shown in this show was taped backstage at the May 28th Oakland concert.
  Brian, Carl & Mike are interviewed.
13
  There's some question as to wether they actually appeared on the show, but they were
  scheduled to.
