Multiple takes of "Summertime Blues" I Pray (Accapella) - Various - OM Summer Sessions 2 the fresh-faced young men not able to play the backing track unless they're singing along, during "Land Ahoy" they get reprimanded by a testy studio technician for talking during a vocal take, and already Brian is doing all of the countoffs and vocal direction.
