    Beach Boys Help Me Rhonda Acetate (United Recording, 1965). This acetate of one of the Beach Boys' signature songs has an interesting background. As certified by fan and consignor Lori Barth, Mike Love himself, fresh from the recording session where the renowned Wrecking Crew had laid down the instrumental track for "Help Me Rhonda," showed up at the home of journalist and Beach Boys Press Officer, Earl Leaf with the acetate. He placed it on Leaf's record player, turned it on, and preceded to sing along at the top of his lungs! Afterwards he gave the 8" one-sided disc to Leaf, who later gave it to Beach Boys fan Lori Barth. This unique piece comes with a Letter of Authenticity from Ms. Barth. Condition: EX 7.
