Recorded in early 1962 as a demo tape along with "409" "Lonely Sea" and another song (maybe "Surfer Girl" or "Judy").
Chuck Britz was the engineer at Western Studios where the demo was recorded, Britz remained the Beach Boys engineer through 1966.
It is debateable whther this song or "409" was supposed to be the A-Side of the single.
This is the Beach Boys first top-20 hit.
