It's one of the few Beach Boys albums that's been long out of print, and needs to stay that way, but unfortunately keeps popping up every now and then to haunt Beach Boys fans. This is one of those times.
You probably won't enjoy this album, but who am I to assume such things?
EDIT 9/5/17: This is indeed the UK version, as Roger McGuinn is featured on the title track.

Anybody got any special requests for uploads? If I've got it I'll post it. Live shows, SOT comps, Smile mixes...anything as long as it hasn't already been commercially released. Just leave your requests in the comments.
I totally forgot that this blog also has a companion message board. Just go to doyoulikeworms.yuku.com.
Anyone feel like ressurecting an inactive site?
And in other "old-time Beach Boys blog" news, it looks like Warnakey's blog is still being updated. Can't say the same for Linear Zap, Triffids, or Lightman (though Lightman had a really awesome site going around 2011-2014.).
I don't think I'll ever go back to updating the blog as frequently as I did back in 2008, but I do promise more Beach Boys stuff soon. Maybe even some re-ups of older
posts. We'll see.
