    Beach Boys 1966 Scathing Yearbook Review and Matching Concert Tickets (2) This lot consists of three items: a 1966 college yearbook containing a savage review of the Beach Boys in concert, and two tickets to that very show - which occurred while they were recording their landmark Pet Sounds album, by the way.

    The 1966 Southern Oregon College yearbook carried its review on page 35. Titled "Beach Boys' Concert Brought Varied Reactions," the following was reported: "Presented to raise money for the Student Loan Fund, the Beach Boys Concert, held March 6, was a disappointment to the audience and financially to Student Council. The 'popular' group stumbled through their songs. English star Noel Harrison was the bright spot of the concert, singing many of his songs." Followed by a caption below, "The Beach Boys in concert presented a disillusioning performance." Ouch and double-ouch. Measures 9 ½ x 12 ¼", in Very Good Minus condition with corner bumping.

    The two tickets, with the boys' photo on them, were for the afternoon performance at the S.O.C. Gymnasium on March 6. Each are in protective holders and measure 3 1/2 x 5" in size. Overall, in Near Mint Minus condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.
