Yerkes captures the heart and flavor of the 1966 Beach Boys tour. I loved the candid backstage shots which I had never seen before as a Beach Boys Fan. I truly enjoyed the backstories and history involved with this book but the photos are absolutely stunning! You won't be disappointed with this book! A must have for every Beach Boys fan! Wonderfully done!
