Non-Beach Boy, Brian Wilson Productions

by Steven Dunn

Throughout his working life Brian has been writing music, and not always with the Beach Boys. In the early 60s Brian worked as a producer in that he wrote music for many other artists. I believe that most of these tracks have been released, but a few will be unused LP tracks (eg see American Spring) and others may just have appeared on boot alone, but these will be few and far between.

I have tried to put together a list of such tracks below for your reference, and which you are welcome to suggest amendments or add to.

There are no Beach Boys tracks, pseudonyms excepted, and only initial/original recordings are listed rather than subsequent covers. I cannot guarantee the accuracy the sources of my information being; CD/LP liner notes, various books - esp Surf's Up and discussions with BW collectors.
