This early slice of Beach Boys swell was released 50 years ago today, apparently inspired by both cowboy film soundtracks, Bach and acid. Wilson is the subject of a biopic, Love & Mercy, which opened at UK cinemas this weekend. Tune into The Q Show on Absolute Radio from 10pm (BST) tonight (12 July) for a look at the film.
