Chartfax USA
 
  You have before you a basic survey of the charting US releases of The Beach Boys - band, solo(ish) and the odd collaboration - from early 1962 to date (and it is "to date": currently, Sounds Of Summer is still lurking in the lower reaches of the album chart). The format is pretty  self-explanatory: title/highest position/total weeks on chart/chart debut. However a few words of explanation: the creation of the Catalog Chart in March 1991 unquestionably robbed Sounds Of Summer of dozens (hundreds ?) more weeks on the main chart... and for those wondering why neither the "Little St. Nick" or "The Man With All They Toys" singles are listed, or why The Beach Boys Christmas Album has a chart debut in 2019 and a "high" of only #107, the answer is that back in the day when they were originally released, there were seperate Christmas charts for such releases, thus they weren't included in the main listings (for completists, both singles peaked at #3 and the album at #6, and would doubtless have reached similar heights in the "real" charts).
