Beach Boyz II Men

There was a very nice piece in last weekend's Arts and Leisure section of the New York Times on Feel Flows, the just released remixed and remastered collection of Beach Boys' Sunflower and Surf's Up stuff from 1969-1971.

But here's the bit that flipped me out.

The boxed set...has some gorgeous extras, like an early version of [Mike] Love’s “Big Sur” that is very different from the one that later appeared on Holland. There are also oddities like “My Solution,” a monster-movie novelty recorded by Brian [Wilson] on Halloween 1970, and a 40-second quotation from The Beatles’ “You Never Give Me Your Money,” performed on electric piano — but by whom? The producers think it was [Bruce] Johnston, who said he has no idea.

And because I love you all more than food, here it is.

BTW, just about every song from the set seems to be available on YouTutube. Enjoy.
