Here’s your Friday WTF moment–Bedazzled has unearthed and posted a 40 minute audio tape that was recorded during the Beach Boys’ sessions for "Help Me Rhonda" that devolves into a band vs. manager and father Murry Wilson blow out. Beach boys historians will know that Murry Wilson’s domineering is blamed for Brian Wilson losing his mind in the 70s, and for selling off the band’s publishing rights for booze money (a low $75,000).
The four part audio can be heard here, here, here, and here, with the second part featuring some Brian vs. Murry fighting regarding Brian’s lost hearing and Murry’s yelling. By the end of the 40 minutes, the band eject Murry as manager, hand have a single finished.
It’s pretty entertaining stuff–it’s like a hidden piece of rock history that proves a lot of what people have been saying regarding Murry Wilson for years. [via Boing Boing]
