    A-Side Stamped Matrix = 45-55558-GF3#2 IAM .... Is this simply another variant?

      Meh. It's The Beach Boys.

      I got this for free from a friend who was getting rid of his vinyl collection. I keep it for the track Wouldn't It Be Nice on side A. Every time I hear it, I am reminded of the gorgeous Drew Barrymore and funny-man Adam Sandler in the film 50 First Dates. The side B track, God Only Knows, just doesn't do much for me at all. This may not be popular opinion, but it is my opinion and I will not apologize for it. It is, after all, an opinion. That being said, these songs do not really make me want to listen to The Beach Boys album Pet Sounds.
