Performance History

Performed by the Beach Boys during the Dead/Beach Boys set on 27th April 1971. Members of the Dead did not contribute to this song or to I Get Around.


The initial recording of the song by the Beach Boys is always described in hyperbole; condensed from 90 hours of tape, recorded in 27 versions in a number of LA Studios at a cost of $16,000, and so on..
