Not live, not the BB - t'was a 'bonus' track on a very, very rare live album called "Rockin' 4th of July" from 1985 or 86. Billed as Mike Love & friends.

Before Landy's drugs kicked in full time and damn near killed him.

These are The Marketts, not The Beach Boys. There are dozens of albums which flesh out the pre-Capitol BB tracks with songs by other bands. Thus:

Balboa Blue - Marketts
Wipe Out - Marketts
Surfer's Stomp - Marketts

Tioga - Frogmen (Candix labelmates !)
Beware Below - Frogmen
Underwater - Frogmen

Phantom Surfer - Tornadoes
Bustin' Surfboards - Tornadoes

Little Deuce Coupe - Surfin' Six
409 - Surfin' Six

"The woman in the center at :44 is the prettiest. I would guess that would be Brian Wilson's wife."

Nope - that's Diane, his sister in law. L-R, Marilyn (future Mrs. Wilson), Diane & Ginger Blake (cousin).

Not in the least impressive: the 'mix' is boomy, unfocussed, way too fussy and the levels are all over the place. Vocals seem to be pulled back to about 4 and strings/rhythm guitars pushed up to 9 or so. Amateurish in the extreme. Just because you can remix something doesn't mean you should.

Overall quality is so appalling it's not worth watching.

Just to clear things up - this is a Nik Venet production: Brian had nothing to do with it. He was on tour at the time.

Nik Venet had nothing to do with this. It was all Brian.
This was the period when a lot people 'cheated' and tried to take
credit for what others did. Don't be one of them Andrew.
Behave yourself! Did you 'get clean' for Gene. Or did you
take part in the Woody Allen movie, "Lets Get Ourselves
Some Teeny Boppers"? I think Nik Venet was involved in
the soundtrack. Connie Stevens was going to sing the
title song, but was replaced by Lucy Arnez. She did a good
job!

The footage is indeed from 1969, as that's the year Paul Revere & The Raiders toured Europe with the BB in June/July.

@ Steve Davis - Brian did indeed arrange and perform all the bvs, but he had nothing to do with the instrumental track.
