Can’t help but think the title and cover art of this new download-only Beach Boys album is a finger up to those fans who were angered by the band playing and therefore seemingly endorsing the convention for big game hunters.
In the UK, no: once something is in the public domain, it's there forever, and given the whole copyright extension things was/is being done because of European copyright law, I'd say that's true in the US as well.
"Hear me, my Chiefs! I am tired; my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands I will fight no more forever."
So I suppose that probably throws the chances of an official stereo mix of the Surfin' Safari album out the window then. And by extension, a 1962 set as a whole. IIRC, the April 1962 Gary Usher material (i.e. Visions, Beginning of the End, etc.) was apparently in serious consideration for inclusion on one of the Morgan sessions collections, but this was ultimately blocked by the "powers that be" for one reason or another...
