Ο original τίτλος του τραγουδιού που έγινε διάσημο ως επιτυχία των Beach Boys είναι “John B. Sails”. Πρόκειται για παραδοσιακό ναυτικό τραγούδι των Μπαχαμών, το ακούμε σε μια έξοχη ηχογράφηση του από τον σπουδαίο Μπαχαμέζο performer Blake Alphonso Higgs – 1952.

The original title of the song that became famous as a Beach Boys’ hit is “John B. Sails”. It’ s a traditional sea song of the Bahamas, we hear it in an excellent recording by the great Bahamese performer Blake Alphonso Higgs – 1952.
