Listen: The Beach Boys cover Bob Dylan and The Beatles in unearthed recordings

Expanded version of 'Beach Boys Party!' to be released December 11th

In 1965, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson of the Beach Boys got together with acoustic instruments to record their unplugged album Beach Boys’ Party! .

Set up like a campfire jam, the band ad-libbed casually recording some of their hit songs, as well as a couple covers in the United Western Recorders studio. Among them, the Beach Boys covered Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are A-Changin” and The Beatles “Tell Me Why”, which until recently had never seen the light of day.

The newly uncovered tracks will be featured on the expanded re-release of Beach Boys’ Party! that is set to be released December 11th. Check out the tracks below:
