Despite its title (and the cover claiming 'recorded live at a Beach Boys Concert'), this 'live album' by the Beach Boys is in fact made up of recordings from at least two seperate gigs, plus studio overdubbing (some songs in fact being the studio versions sped up with audience noise overdubbed).Despite this, it's an interesting, if not particularly accomplished album, with many songs (all covers) that were never recorded by the band in the studio.

Amazingly, this is the only non-compilation Beach Boys album to reach number one in the USA.
