Just one more thing (as I put on my Columbo raincoat) .. I could have 
seen Good Vibrations issued as 12 inch 45 rpm disk -- a la disco 
singles -- of which the Beach Boys did have one -- Here Comes the 
Night on Caribou via Caribou. After all, EMI did release 12 inch 45 
rpm discs of classical pieces in the mid 70s on Angel of stuff like 
-- I think Mars from Holst's The Planets

As to The Beach Boys being the next biggest thing that EMI has  to 
the Beatles -- poo -- for the purpose of issuing a 78 they could 
have/ should have gone to the catalogues of Gene Vincent (Capitol), 
Eddie Cochrane (Liberty), or Fats Domino (Imperial) -- all owned by them.
