UGH! Besides Love and Foskett, any idea if there are any other Boys on the Barbara Ann track? Don't hear Carl or Al, just curious.

A token look (it’s all it’s worth) seems to mention Mike (‘mustn’t dilute the brand’) and Papa Doo Run Run members only.

Found this one about this compilation:


Talentwise, the highlight is probably the Beach Boys making an appearance to recast two of their hits as Cubbie anthems. “Barbara Ann” becomes “Here come the Cubs,” and “Surfin’ Safari” becomes “Cubby Safari.” The harmonies are great as ever—they make you want to grab your bat and ball and go surfing—but this was not a high point in the band’s career. As far as I can tell, the songs originally aired as broadcast filler during ballgames on WGN Radio. In 1987, the station sold the collection as a mail-order promotion for $6.99. My aunt Kathy bought a tape and made me a copy.

I agree that it doesn't sound like all the Beach Boys were on there.

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

PRO SHOT BEACH BOYS CONCERTS - LIST


To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

That's 4 minutes of my life I'll never get back. I'd rather listen to Summer of Love on an endless loop.

This is why it took the Cubs another 29 years to finally win the World Series.
