efforts through the American Red Cross.

B side: “Friends (A Cappella)” by The Beach Boys; previously unreleased from 1968 [exclusive to this release] For more information visit the Beach Boys Examiner article by David Beard:
After April 19, the single will be available for the next three months through the record stores, my website and TheBeachBoys.com website. The single will be packaged in a white sleeve and the first 1,000 pressed will be on white vinyl with a red label to replicate the Japanese flag. It’s gonna’ be cool man! Brian, Mike, Bruce and I have signed about 90 of them. It’s certainly gonna’ be a nice little collector’s item, and 100% of the money will go to the Red Cross. Universal is distributing it. Everyone has pitched in on the cost. The singles pressed after the initial 1,000 will be on black vinyl.
