Here are the Dubs with Cleveland Stills on lead. The original lead was Richard Blandon, he passed in 91.

Yes you may, but lets use this version. Here is LaLa Brooks 50 years later, she was the lead with the Crystals back in the day. Now come a little closer.

I admire your indomitable spirit and undying love for your music! Now try this love song from the great Eric Clapton. It's lovely, no?

Eric must be singing that song for 40 years or so. Almost as old as the oldies. (heh)

The Beach Boys were always noted for great harmonies. Many times I'm on my lani by the pool with the stereo cranked up via my outdoor bose speakers listening to their albums. My neighbors love listening also. (heh)
