The Beach Boys in Concert is the second live album officially released in the U.S. by The Beach Boys, nine years after Beach Boys Concert (Live in London was released in the U. K. in 1970 and in the U. S. three years after "The Beach Boys in Concert" in 1976). Released in late 1973, the set proved to be a healthy seller in the U. S., giving the band their best chart peak since early 1968 with Wild Honey by reaching #24, and earning them their first gold record since 1966's Best of The Beach Boys.
Compiled from two separate US jaunts in late 1972 and mid-1973, The Beach Boys In Concert was initially submitted to Reprise Records as a single live disc and was rejected, before expanding into a double album. Highlights include updated interpretations of "Caroline, No", "You Still Believe in Me", "Heroes and Villains", "Don't Worry Baby" and "Surfer Girl". Of the newer material, "Marcella", "Sail On, Sailor", "Funky Pretty" and "The Trader" are joined, among others, with Holland out-take "We Got Love", which makes its debut here on a Beach Boys album. The Beach Boys in Concert (Brother/Reprise 2RS 6484) hit #25 in the US during a chart stay of 24 weeks.
Both Blondie Chaplin and Ricky Fataar would depart the band's line-up, in late 1973 and late 1974 respectively, making this the last album on which they appeared as official members.
