Not "Fan Tan," either . . . Keep guessing until you get your copy.

The "Carnival of Sound" saga actually starts in early 1966.

I'll Take "Carnival Of Sound" for 500 Mark !!!!!!!!! 
I got the above from your earlier post. Is that correct???

Jan began work on "Only A Boy," "Girl, You're Blowing My Mind," "Yakety Yak," "Stay" and "In The Still Of The Night" prior to his accident. But, and Mark Moore can clarify, The name for the album was not established yet.

It's "Girl, You're Blowin' My Mind" . . . in terms of a Carnival track that most wouldn't think of as dating before the accident. But the basic track was first recorded in March 1966. Lots of additions and revisions later.

The Carnival tracks that Jan started working on before the accident are:

Girl, You're Blowin' My Mind
Only A Boy
Stay
Yakety Yak
In the Still of the Night
Louisiana Man
Track-wise - Tijuana is a lift from the March '64 "Little Old Lady" session. But the vocals were recorded in '67.

Has anyone noticed that the "v" in "Carnival" is upside down?

Is there a story to that?

And on the back cover, when "Carnival" is upside down, the "V" is rightside up . . . Kinda goes along with the "yin and yang" motif on the front cover and disc tray.
