This seems to be about the right timing to put what was to become the most infamous, non-released album of all time. Brian commenced recording sessions in August 1966 and after about 85 recording sessions, stretching through to the middle of May, 1967, the project was abandoned. During this time there were approximately 20 songs that were in various stages of finish.

The proposed track list that Capitol had prepared for the album release looked like the following :-

Do You Like Worms
Wind Chimes
Heroes And Villains
Surf's Up
Good Vibrations
Cabin Essence
Wonderful
I'm In Great Shape
Child Is Father Of The Man
Elements, The - Mrs O'Leary's Cow (Fire)
Elements, The - I Love To Say Da-Da (Water)
Vega-Tables
Old Master Painter, The

The 20 songs at the end of the project were worked on by others over the next few months, and some of them surfaced over the next few years, the rest remained unreleased.

These are the songs that were in various stages of finish at the end of the project:-

Our Prayer
Heroes And Villains (Parts 1 & 2)
Barnyard
Do You Like Worms
Old Master Painter - You Are My Sunshine
He Gives Speeches
Wonderful
Child Is Father Of The Man

Capital were all set to release "Heroes and Villains" as Capital 5826. They had the picture sleeves already printed. On the right is the front and the back. There was a delay in completing the song and in the meantime Brother Records was formed, so the record was never released on Capital in the USA, it became the first release on Brother, as 1001.
