And the track “Oh Yeah” — what’s that about?
Linett: My understanding is that the Beach Boys were on tour — I think they just played the Fillmore East in New York — and because there was this sort of mad scramble to finish up the new album, they’d taken their tapes with them and were working on them every chance they got. I guess they did some work at Capitol Studios in New York, and one of the band members happened upon this kid on the street who was doing this kind of rap thing, and they thought, “Oh, man, this is great, we should get him on tape.” They brought him into the studio, gathered the guys around the mic, and had him lay it down. All it says on the tape box is “Oh Yeah.” No indication as to who he is.

That is such a cool story. Imagine being this kid throwing out some words on the street and next you're in a recording studio with one of America's most well loved bands. Would love to know if this kid is still around and if he remembers this.

Also, no live recordings from 1969 in the vaults. Pretty interesting. Really grateful for Alan and Mark's work, and that this set is getting some press. Looking forward to next year's release.

That is indeed truly fascinating. Especially since it is somewhat of a proto rap/spoken word type of thing. I'm trying to think of a parallel in rock history for such a famous band.

I wonder if any sort of search has ever been conducted to find this kid. This could/should be a scene in a movie or something. I feel like if this ever happened with say, The Beatles, there'd be entire TV special programs dedicated to finding the kid and getting his recollections.

Makes me wonder what stuff other bands did like this that never left the vaults.

I would love to have seen this on their 20/20 album, as some sort of hidden track at the tail end of the album.

Had that happened, The BBs would probably be legendary for breaking new ground in terms of genre. I'm still not quite sure how to classify the genre of “Oh Yeah”, but it's definitely doing something new for 1969, methinks.

I'd like to think that someone, somewhere, is gonna accidentally access this track in their iTunes when they are intending to select the song by the band Yello (made famous from Ferris Beuller's Day Off)  LOL

The unfortunate takeaway I have from this is that Mike Love wants people to be afraid of him. There are plenty of parallels to a certain person in today's world of politics too, and I think that some powerful people (who like to make less powerful people fear them) admire that trait in other powerful people too.  

Maybe this is just par for the course with some powerful celebs, but it really feels like a particularly strong case of people being (justifiably) afraid of him due to past litigiousness. I have to think that things like the ridiculous and laughed-out-of-court 2005 lawsuit were really an example of creating an atmosphere of fear to prevent people from publishing books like Rocky's apparent original draft. Guess it worked. It's unfortunate that Brian of all people had to go through grief in 2005 to help Mike add to his portfolio of scare tactics.
 
Sucks for an author to be caught up in this drama. Not Ron's fault. I'm still curious to read the book, Ron, and I will at some point. I wonder if the original draft could have just been released if all the names were changed.

Sums up my thoughts perfectly.

Rocky and Ron's book is hinting at a far deeper problem...
