The Making Of The Beach Boy's "Sloop John B"

Here's a spectacular video that highlights the making of The Beach Boy's 1965 hit "Sloop John B." This was never one of my favorite Beach Boy's song but I have a newfound appreciation for both it's instrumental and vocal intricacies after watching this very well-done video.

As always, BB producer Brian Wilson has a number of doublings and counter-lines going in the background of the music and the vocals, and we can hear them all here. Even if you're not a BB fan, it's worth watch to see just how intricate music could be made even 45 years ago, back in the days when 4 track ruled.
