This is quite rare, I believe:



It's at Long Beach, CA, on 3 December, 1971, with Jack Rieley singing. According to Alan Smith at PSF (to whom many thanks), "Brian emerged from the audience to perform the number with him, as per The Beach Boys In Concert book
by Ian Rusten and Jon Stebbins, see page 157." Could this be the only time "ADITLOAT" was ever performed live?

Very rare indeed, John! I heard this recording many years ago now and was blown away then ... I always loved how the crowd/person recording this or by him shouts the lyrics---brilliant!

Brian's right! They sound super tight here (musically).

This song in this version is under discussion at Smiley right now:

I was searching through some stuff at PSF when I came across this scathing review from April 2017 of Lei'd in Hawaii by ex-PSFer theSuperMetroid02:

Holy crap, what on God's green earth am I even listening to?
God Only Knows sounds like Carl's about to cry, or he's singing with cotton swabs in his mouth or something. Just awful.
I never thought I'd dislike Good Vibrations but bless me Jesus, they found a way.
Why is someone constantly calling out to Brian? Was he trying to slip out the back? Playing the wrong notes? Making disgusted faces as his masterpieces are butchered in front of him? I'd believe any and all of the above.
Whoever keeps riffing into the mic gets old real quick. Mike? Carl? I honestly can't tell. But he just sounds like your drunk uncle singing karaoke and trying to goad you into singing a duet with him more than he does a suave rockstar taking in millions of adoring fans. No Uncle Lucius, I told you I don't want to sing with you. I'm good over here. Please stop making me uncomfortable...
But these tracks are the entertaining bad ones, the ones at the actual concert. The first half is just dull-bad, which is worse because it doesn't even have the unintentional comedy. Just slowed down, boring versions of songs done better elsewhere.
It's nice to hear Mike's infamous heckling of Heroes and Villains in full. I've heard Brian put him up to it, but I don't know if I totally buy that. Even if that's true, it shouldn't have taken any decent human being to know the song was important to Brian, that he worked on it for over a year and its relative failure must have hurt him deeply. I would hope Mike told him between takes of this that Brian was being too tough on himself and the song was great. But somehow I doubt that happened.
Intro is just hilarious. "They've got surfin safari...and a some other big hits" I don't know why but that just makes me laugh.

2 for the curiosity factor, H&V riff and a few laughs I guess. Once they take the stage it's fascinatingly bad. This is tough to rate though--honestly I settled on 2 just because it was about the only rating no one else went with yet. It might as well be anything--you're listening to a boot of an infamously bad concert, what do you expect?
