On their third rest day in Los Angeles during their final tour, The Beatles were visited by Brian and Carl Wilson of The Beach Boys, whose 11th album Pet Sounds proved a key influence on the recording of Revolver.
The Beatles were renting a house at 7655 Curson Terrace in Beverly Hills, in which Brian Epstein had arranged for them to stay. They remained at the house throughout their stay in Los Angeles, which ended with a concert at the city’s Dodger Stadium on 28 August 1966.

Paul tells a story (in an interview with Roy Wood) that Brian Wilson brought over Good Vibrations to play to the Beatles when he came over. Good Vibrations wasn’t finished officially and mixed down until September 26th but must have brought an earlier mix over.
