Does anyone have a definitive list of Murry Wilson songs, released by other artists?
Looking for
Artist, label, format (45 or 78), year of release, a and b side credits (title, Cat No, writer(s) credit, producer etc). Any scans of the records would be even better.

So far I have identified and have some details (but not the full details) of tracks on singles by
The Four Flames (1951)
Hollywood's Four Flames (1952)
The Jets (1954)
The Tangiers (1955)
Mary Moultrie (1966)
Bob Williams and the Red Calendar Sextette (year unknown)
and an album track by Kris Arden.

NB Murry co-authored one or two of these tracks.(Those by Mary Moultrie and Kris Arden were written with T Parker)

Any more details welcomed, and any other missing tracks too- thanks

Am I missing the point? Huh

Surely those first to mind would be those Sunrays songs...?

'Car Party'  b/w 'Outta Gas' being the obvious ones. Probably would find more if I read the CD notes...

Sorry, yes mrski, of course there are the Sunrays tracks. I was looking to track down some of the more obscure tracks, particularly from the '50's.

Have you checked out Discogs? His listing shows 21 writing credits. https://www.discogs.com/artist/363017-Murry-Wilson?filter_anv=0&subtype=Writing-Arrangement&type=Credits

I believe "Two Step Side Step" was the one that famously appeared on Lawrence Welk's radio show.

Side note: A couple months ago I came across a copy of The Many Moods of Murry Wilson, surprisingly nice listen, though a bit like elevator music.

For trivia buffs, there is also the "fake" Murry song from the 1990 "Summer Dreams" movie, "Hop Skip Shuffle":
