The Beach Boys attempt The Box Tops hit "The Letter". Sounds like it would have been really good. Don't think they ever finished it though.The Letter (take 2).mp3The Letter (track and vocal).mp3
Where are these Beach Boys tracks coming from? Are these from one of the many out-takes bootlegs?

The Beach Boys version of The Letter was officially released on "The Beach Boys Rarities" album, put out by Capitol Records in 1983. It was a finished version of the song that clocks in at 1:47.
I don't remember ever hearing the outtakes though, so thanks for posting them!
