Man, just when I thought I'd heard just about all the really good Beach Boys-related music out there, I come across this gem.

Not only does Christopher Cross totally nail a killer Carl-like lead vocal on this 1983 tune, but Carl himself also sings backing vocals all over it.

Does anyone have any interesting Carl-related trivia about this tune to share?
Anyone who's a fan of Carl's singing (I'd assume that'd be everyone on this board) should do themselves a favor and give this a listen.

It's a good one, one of Carl's best guest vocals. I got exposed to "Baby Says No" by a former housemate decades ago who was a Christopher Cross fan.

I bought that LP at its release date. The Carl track was a nice surprise ... : - )

Cool Smiley Back then, did you realize it was Carl just from hearing his voice, or did you discover it via reading liner notes? Pre-internet, it was fun discovering stuff like that sometimes without any hint that there'd be a surprise waiting for the listener inside the LP.

Yes, I did: - )

His voice was instantly recognizable. I quickly went to the liner notes to check though.
